Less than half the labor of stile and rail door. You can save hugely on entire door schedule and get our 50-year warp-free guarantee on all your doors.

With our patented core technology and high production capacity, we are able to produce the highest quality doors at a very low price with very quick turnaround times.

We were able to bring a customer’s order total down from

$27,500 to $13,500

for a total of

$14,000 in savings.

We did this by changing their order of 21 different door sizes down to 4 different door sizes.  The customer easily trimmed their own doors. SingCore gave the same 50 year no-warp guarantee to this customer’s order.

Here is what their order looked like before we offered them half price on their order if we could reduce the variations of door sizes:

A typical order from a customer may consist of many different variations of door sizes. The different sizes of doors take us longer to full fill an order. If instead you place an order with all the same size doors, we can streamline our manufacturing process which saves us time and money. We in turn share those savings of time and money with you.

Let us do the most labor intensive parts and you finish the rest to build the best door in the world, especially very large door, but our standard-sized door panels are very affordably priced.

Low Cost Veneer Yourself Panels

While SingCore is well know across the nation for high end panels used in the most expensive 10+ million homes on the planet, as well as iconic building such as the world trade center and the Museum of Modern Art, we do have room in our ranks for lower cost projects as well. When quality is of the utmost importance, our stain grade veneer panels and wood stave panels provide the tightest specification possible. However, when price is sensitive, we have the option of producing veneer ready plywood panels for a much reduced cost.

Save When You Buy Our Raw Material

Every one of our cores is custom made directly to your specifications. While we cannot provide a one-size fits all standard sheet of our core material, we can offer low cost raw panels for your project that accepts veneering of any kind:

  • Thin wood veneer (hot or cold pressed)
  • Wood stave 1/8″ +
  • Applied metals
  • Stone / tile
  • Formica
  • Plastics
  • Other

For the price conscious project, where your company already has the tools and skills necessary to finish a wooden panel, then this is probably the most cost effective way to get world class quality of SingCore in your project.

Why Sing Panels are Better

You may ask, “Is it really worth it to buy a Sing panel?” Often times, the returns are not obvious. But, just ask yourself if there is any danger that your old fashioned door would warp? Is weight an issue? Can you guarantee your door panel for 50 years?

Special Skills Not Required

Master Quality Door Veneer Surfaces

Our Master Quality Doors are Complimented by Our Ultra High Quality Skin and Surface Choices

Wood Veneers

Veneer allows us to create a high end finish with less weight and cost while offering a wide assortment of beautiful door surfaces.  There are a number of different types of veneers that all provide excellent options that will compliment the styles of your structures.   Difference species generally demand a different price.  Some popular examples are Maple, White Oak, Mahogany, Cherry, Alder, and Hemlock.  Veneers are sold in bundles and range in price, but generally use the most flawless wood to provide the absolute most appealing visual aspects for your doors.  Standard veneer thickness is .020″, and is often used to decorate high end furniture, cabinetry, cabinetry, floors, and even plywood. You can trust Sing Core to veneer your doors, alternatively you can get substrate only and have your veneer applied locally.*

The beauty of veneer is the high quality wood grain appearance that provides you with the most natural aesthetics.  Each piece is completely unique, because it is cut from the actual logs.  Not only does this allow you an amazing modern appearance, but also you can achieve a more vintage, timeless, or antique look.  Normally, better quality veneers are used for doors, because customers want the best looking doors they can possibly get.  Door grade veneer comes in a few distinct grades.

Face Cut Options

Rotary Cut Veneer – Created by spinning the log and peeling off sheets, almost like unrolling a roll of toilet paper, rotary cut veneer is the most common type of veneer.  The advantage of this type of veneer is that it results in one continuous sheet.  It is a very cost effective way of producing veneer, but it results in a very unpredictable grain pattern.

Plain Sliced or Flat Cut Veneer – This is the second most common cut.  In this method, thin layers are sliced one at a time along the width of the log.  The slices, which are also called leaves, because the blade works its way from the top of the log to the bottom, there is a gradual transition in the grain pattern.  This method of cutting parallel to the growth rings results in a V-shaped pattern that is often seen on sheets of plywood.

 

Rift Cut Veneer – Another interesting method is the rift cut process, which allows for a more straight-grained look.  In this method the log is quartered, then cut perpendicular to the grain in repeating arches.  The advantage to this is that you get a relatively uniform grain appearance.  The disadvantage to rift sawn veneer is that it costs more, because the process is more time consuming.

Quarter Sliced Veneer – This type of veneer is also sometimes called quarter cut or quarter sawn veneer.  This cut is often specified when the customer wants an exceptionally straight grain appearance.  First, the log is quartered, which allows each quarter to be sliced perpendicular to the growth rings.  Since leaves are cut more narrowly than plain sliced, they are much more easily lined up with other leaves, allowing for superior uniformity.  Despite it’s vast advantages, this method requires a larger log diameter compared to the alternative methods.  This method also achieves a sort of flaking appearance, created when the veneer knife bisects medullary rays in the tree.

Veneer Matching Options

No matter what cut of veneer is applied, without proper veneer matching, your project will not turn out as expected.  Veneer matching is a true art form.  The job of matching veneer is a precise job that requires a detailed approach.  The appearance is partially determined by how the veneer slices are lined up on the doors.

Book Match Veneer – Every other veneer leaf is turned over, like the pages of a book.  With this method, the veneer will be mirrored between each consecutive two leaf section, resulting in a repeating series of symmetrical patterns.  This method is preferred by many, because of the continuity of grain.  This method produces both ascending and descending prominent characteristics of the grain.  Not all cuts of veneer can be used with the Book Matching method, however, but plain, quarter, or rift sliced veneers can all be used for this purpose.  This book end formation tends to reflect light and accept stains differently.  With this method there is also potential for wide color variation, known as “barber pole” in some species or flitches.  Despite these variations, they are still considered desirable.

Random Match Veneer – This method produces a more chaotic appearance, because pieces are generally unmatched, as if the applicator has taken a series of boards and lined them up on the surface of the door.  This produces a more old fashioned look, as something that was perhaps built before modern methods of veneer were invented.  With this method, there is often a deliberate method to reduce grain consistency.

Continuous Match Veneer – This is when the pieces of veneer are used for both the door and the transom, allowing for a very consistent look between the door and the transom.

End Match Veneer – This is generally selected for doors with transoms.  This match uses a single piece of veneer that runs from the bottom to the top of the door.   Veneer can be turned turned at the joint to achieve this appearance.

Slip Match Veneer – This is one of the quickest methods of matching veneer, but requires higher quality veneer that is fairly uniform in appearance.  Sheets are slipped out on the the surface one after the other, creating a wave of repeating patterns.  Some frown on this method, because of the abrupt joints.  This differs from book match veneer in that book match is better at hiding the joints.  Uniformity of color is superior in this method, because each piece has a similar level of light refraction.  It also allows for a relatively straight grain pattern.

Natural Variations

Because wood is an organic product, each piece has its own characteristics.  There is a vast array of grain patterns and formations, which can vary among trees and different flitches.  Because of that, some trees may not meet standards.  Other trees may considered of exceptional quality.  Prices may also vary depending on the quality and appearance of the veneer.  Because of variations in natural grain of each tree and differences in cuts, you can experience amazingly unique grain, pattern, and color, for each leaf of veneer, which translates into an an unlimited variations in door appearances.

In all cases, the natural wood quality will improve and compliment design elements, especially if the wood is applied in its natural state, unfettered by paints and enamels which might hinder the actual beauty of the wood.

Some species, like maple and birch can show a wide variety of color ranges.  When it comes to maple and birch unlimited amounts of sapwood and heartwood, large portions may be unusable, because of unacceptable color.  Sapwood lighter in color, while heartwood is darker in color.  There is also the issue with light, dark, and color streaks, spots, and color variation that results from mixing sapwood with heartwood.  If these sorts of variants in color and grain are not desired by you or your customers, veneer must be selected accordingly.  If lighter shades of veneer are desired, you must specify sapwood maple or birch.  If darker shades are required, you should select heartwood, however, this type is often limited in supply.

 * = Professional veneering can be very tricky. If you are getting substrate from Sing Core and having your millwork (or someone else) apply the veneer, be certain to affirm that they have the expertise to apply the veneer appropriately. We use the highest level of professional veneer professional and techniques. We can guarantee our veneering, if you have veneering done off-site, it is their responsibility to do it correctly. A faulty veneer could jeopardize your Sing warranty.

Very Large Sliding Door With and Without Mural

Pocket Door

Pocket doors have become an integral part of modern architectural design.  Despite the many advantages of pocket doors, they do present unique challenges in both the manufacturing and the installation process.

The Best Pocket Doors

Sing Core has become known for making some of the largest, most impressive sliding doors on the market.  Pocket doors are sliding doors that slide into a pocket in the wall.  Certain customers have come to know Sing Core, not only for our sliding doors, but also for our magnificent pocket doors.  Introducing the best pocket doors!

Pocket Door Challenges

The concept of pocket doors seems simple very simple.  They are similar to sliding doors in that they slide on tracks and typically use rollers to open and close.  The big difference is that they slide into a pocket that has fixed dimensions inside the wall.  If the door warps or skews, the door cease to function.  You will not be able to open or close the door because warping will change the dimensions of the door.

Warp Free Pocket Door

Over decades, we have developed our patented and patent pending materials that allow for super strong, light weight, warp free door construction.  Warping and skewing present significant problems for pocket doors, because pocket doors must slide into a fixed space inside the wall.  Any deviation from specifications will prevent the door from fitting into the space.  When this happens, your door will cease to function.  You will need to buy a new door, change out your hardware that may bend or break as a result of door malfunction.  In some cases, you also need to rebuild your door frame or your walls when they are ruined from doors being opened and closed.

But we have solved all of the problems associated with large pocket doors and large sliding doors.  When you use Sing Core products, you not only get a door that exceeds AWI standards in terms of warpage, you also get a door that’s guaranteed against warping for 50 years.  Because of our special design methods, you will get a door that ensures proper functionality for decades.

Large Pocket Doors

The larger the door the bigger the challenge.  Large pocket doors are more susceptible to warping.  In order to function properly, they must be specially designed to resist warping.  Larger doors must be specially constructed so that they are warp free on installation, as well as, over time.

 

 

 

Ultra High Strength – Large pocket door must be exceptionally strong to stand up to the most rigorous use.  At Sing Core, we have revolutionized door strength with Peter Sing’s patented and patent pending technology that allows us to build doors that are very high strength, tested independently at over 660 PSI.

 

Super Light Weight – Up to 90% lighter than solid wood doors.  Sing Core specially engineered core uses Peter Sing’s revolutionary design to bring a solid door strength to doors that allows for super light weight performance.

 

Straight/Warp Free – Specially designed stiffeners built into our doors make sure your doors are warp free over the long haul for better performance and function.

 

Structurally Stable – With our groundbreaking process, we can make doors that are built exactly to your specifications, and will not skew of shift over time.  That way, you have a door that functions worry free for decades.

 

Eco-friendly – We support sustainability by using 100% renewable, eco-friendly materials, so our products are better on the environment.

 

Guaranteed – When it comes to guarantees, no company on the market can do better.  Our Sing Core Professional Panels are used for doors and other high end applications where stability and precision are of the utmost importance.  All of our Sing Core Professional panels come with a whopping 50 Year Guarantee against warping, cracking, breaking, and skewing.  Name one other company who can do this.  Most companies don’t even offer a one year guarantee, but we can do this because our products have such a strong track record of performance.

 

No one can make panels as large, yet warp free like we can!  You have our guarantee on that.

 

Proudly Made in America

All of our products are 100% made in the USA.  We take pride in supporting our country.  That’s why you won’t find any products that aren’t made in America here.  We also use high quality inputs that are sourced from local suppliers.

Door Skins

Our door system allow you to specify almost any skin for your doors.  We specialize in high quality wood and metal doors.  We have several options depending on your budget.  Our paint grade ply option is our most economical option.  Next is our hardwood veneer option.  Mahogany, oak, walnut, and alder are popular.  We also use 1/8″ wood stave on our highest end option, which gives you a solid wood appearance, but has our specially engineered core to maintain the light weight feature our doors are famous for.  We also make metal doors.  In our metal doors category, we specialize in hot rolled and cold rolled steel, but we also have a very popular aluminum option.

With our patented and patent pending methods, solved the weight problems.  This huge panel measures 12’ x 5’ x 3” thick, yet it only weighs 121 pounds so it can be easily lifted by two men, as you can see in the photo.  This demonstrates there are no other panels on the market as light and large as Sing Core panels.

The Strongest of the Strong

Tested independently, in UW labs, as able to withstand force upwards of 660 PSI, Sing Core, hands down, manufactures the strongest material in its weight class.  Large doors need higher strength to stave off potential warpage. That’s how we provide doors that are stronger, lighter, and more warp free, according to AWI standards.

Our panels can support the weight of a grown man with next to zero flex.

Sing Core doors also come with nearly any skin.  Our most popular skins are Alder, Mahogany, Western Red Cedar, Fir, Pine, Hemlock, Balsa, Birch.  Even better, we can apply hot rolled or cold rolled steel, aluminum, copper, bronze. Your doors are only limited by your imagination.

If you need the highest strength, lightest weight, most warp free large sliding doors and large pocket doors, available in more skin options than any other door, you need Sing Core doors.

The Sing Core Advantage

Another advantage to Sing Core is that you can apply any kind of skin or finishing.  This photo shows high quality siding applied to the huge factory door.  The siding is very easy to apply and is great in exterior weather conditions.  Whether rain, snow, or hot sun, your door will be protected against the elements every single time.

Applying siding to your door will offer superior weather proofing.

Giant factory doors are a Sing Core specialty, as you can see here from the picture, which shows how large and well built our doors are.

This photo shows the true scale of the door.  When you see a full grown man standing in front of it, the massive nature of the door is apparent.

Sing Core Triple Panel Sliding Door

There are many ways to build a door.  One of the most effective ways is to build multiple doors that open together in one space.  There are advantages to covering your door opening with more than one panel.  This allows each panel to be lighter and it offers more versatility with your hardware.  Hardware does not have to be as strong, because the the weight of the full door does not rest all on one track.  Also, it is much easier to install a door in sections, because very large doors tend to be heavier and much more difficult to install.

Singcore patented and patent pending technology allows us to make doors that are so large, yet so light they can be opened with just one fingure.  Over the years, we have done so much research and development in the areas of strength and light weight attributes that we have been able to make panels that are much stronger, pound for pound, than competing products.  When you need large industrial doors that hold up under the most rigorous conditions, Sing Core has your door.

Classic Hidden Hallway Door

Sing Core is known for it’s large, showy doors. But, our lightweight door technology has many varied applications. Whenever style and durability are a factor, Sing Core panels deliver where others cannot.

A Unique Addition to Your Project

Nothing sells a finished product like the little touches. When you think that everything else has been tried, consider adding a hidden door to your project.

Hidden doors allow for additional space utilization in a design while minimizing visual clutter due to door framing and hardware. This gorgeous example, built by one of Sing Core’s clients using our patented lightweight honeycomb technology, oozes refinement and class. At a glance, the door melds in to the hallway molding and leaves the  lines unobstructed.

Our Panels are Your Canvas

An artist cannot paint without a strong canvas, likewise a builder cannot make living art without strong building materials to form their creations.

Sing Core door slabs come with a 50-year warp-free guarantee that demonstrates the underlying stability and quality of our materials. We stand by our ability to create doors that are:

  • Lightweight
  • Sound proof
  • High insulation value
  • Straight
  • Strong
  • and Dependable

When You Client Demands the Best

May companies on the market offer a variety of door cores. We acknowledge that our product is not the right solution on all situations. For doors of usual sizes and applications, or exacting production standards leave little flexibility in pricing to meet budget demands. Where our doors shine is in very large, high tolerance, or very high end applications.

When all that maters is the best possible outcome for your project, then remember Sing Core and our patented and patent pending “honeycomb” door technology cannot be beat.

Smooth, Flush Trim, and Anything You Can Imagine

Flush is just the start of the possibilities when it comes to high end custom doors. With Sing Core almost any possibility to can be realized. Almost any size can be realized using the unique strength and straightness of our honeycomb core. Too thin and too big are not in our vocabulary.

The real question is how big can you imagine? What do you and your clients seek to realize?

A Miraculous Material

Many people are surprised to see how much then can accomplish beyond the norm with Sing Core backing their work. For us strength is really not a problem. Warping can be relegated to a fear of the past.

We would be boosting to say these things if the product didn’t warrant the praise. But in this case we can, in humility, say that what we provide top end millworks, construction companies, and architects pushes the boundary of what is possible.

When you use Sing Core you are in the driver’s seat. Do you want metal skin, solid wood skin, paint, plastic, fiberglass? Almost anything can be realized with less weight and greater strength than even aluminum or other space age door technologies.

What Can We Do For You?

Although we aren’t the right fit for every project, when your design has unique needs remember that Sing Core is there to back you up.
