Standard Door Widths

How wide is a typical interior door?

Standard interior doors in the United States are 80″ tall (6′-8″) and between 28″ and 36″ wide. The most common width is 32″, but an increased width of 36″ is recommended due to increased accessibility for the disabled.

SingCore offers a variety of custom made door panels to fit any size and requirement. From very large, to standard size interior / exterior doors, and even high end cabinet designs.
Don’t let the “standard” constrain your design when you can be free with the amazing door panels offered by SingCore.

What is the width of a normal door?

Typical interior doors are 32″ wide in the United States, although they may range from 28″ to 36″. Exterior doors are often 36″ wide, but can vary from 30″ to 48″.

For wide doors in a limit space, on increasingly popular option are pivot doors, which offer the grand feel of a wider than average door while maintaining space savings and usability.

What is the standard width of a bathroom door?

The most common size for a bathroom door is 32″. Although, in tight spaces they can be as little as 28″ or 24″ inches. For space that require wheel chair access, doors should be at least 36″ wide to accommodate all ability levels.

When building a bathroom door, be sure that you have considered every eventuality. Particular to bathrooms are concerns about moisture and sound penetration. SingCore panels are particularly suited to harsh environments. We guarantee the structure of our panels for 50-years, which means you are able to count on your bathroom door functioning flawlessly for years to come.

Further, we offer patented foam and wood cores that significantly reduce noise propagation compared to commonly found door designs. Keep your private time private with SingCore.

Sing Solution Considerations

What should you consider when seeking out the Sing solution?

1. Dimensions Affect Price

 

Sing Core can build anything that can be panelized, from large pivot doors to hangar doors and panelized structures such as warehouses or even Sing Log Homes. Very large panels or walls can reach enormous proportions and can be made modular for near seamless assembly on site. Other factors which affect the overall price of your project will be,

2. Importance of Surface Material

 

The skin material used on your panel’s exterior greatly affects how the substructure is built. Basically, the greater the tendency for the exterior surface material to move, the more of Sing’s True Flat engineering is required to create a hybrid substrate which will counteract the panel’s tendency to warp, bend, twist, or otherwise create a challenge in the field over time.

Cutaway shows detail of patented reinforced vertical grain torsion box core

3. Sing Core Inside

The core of the panel in question can come in many different variations besides the patented and fully insulated, reinforced vertical grain torsion box core to match the high precision performance expectations of your project. Many considerations are made to determine the size of the patented structure grids as well as integration of patent-pending counter-warp materials to achieve desired results.

4. Thickness

Thickness of your panel and each of its features affects everything. For instance, it is much easier to keep a panel straight and true the higher the percentage of patented Sing Core is inside your panel proportionally. Even if your surface material is natural wood, your client might desire 3/8” thick material, when using 1/8” material is far more effective, and the difference is not noticeable on the end product.

All of these things play a part in the design and engineering of your panel in terms of

Giant Factory Door Extremely Light Weight

A. WEIGHT

The overall weight of your custom panel(s) is determined by the sum of all the components which are necessary to create a one-of-a-kind solution which meets your required specifications. The greater the amount of Sing Core inside your panel, the less it will weigh and the stronger it will be.

B. STRENGTH

No other substrate in the world is more lightweight or high-strength than inventor Peter Sing’s Sing Core, which provides for a solid composite core based on Sing’s patented insulated and reinforced torsion box structure, which is stronger than steel pound for pound (660+ PSI). By doubling the among of patented Sing Core, you multiply the strength of the panel four times.

C. WARP-FREE

Besides being Eco-friendly and made in the USA, patented Sing Core is the only substrate which can guarantee your panel will not warp, bend, twist, or otherwise fail. In fact, this revolutionary building material enables the best door companies in the world to build large doors of any size which can be guaranteed warp-free for 50 years (a first in the industry).

BUDGET CONSIDERATIONS

Sing solutions for problems and challenging projects can be costly, but they may also be extremely affordable depending on your performance expectations.

If you are on a budget and flexible about some of the elements of your design, there is a good chance that Sing’s True Flat Team may be able to reengineer a solution for you that will both meet your budget and your performance expectations.

How to Join Sing Doors

When your beautiful new Sing Core door sections arrive, it is important to take the time to glue the door together properly. Although Sing Core panels are guaranteed warp-free, we cannot guarantee work done on site. Failure to properly follow these directions may result in a poor final product.

Sing Splines Don’t Crack

Sing Core uses our patented core material as a spine to join several panels on site. Unlike solid wood, the stability of the core material means that there is no danger of cracking or splitting of the seam at the join location.

Join on Site in Three Steps

1. Lay Your Door Panels Flat

It is crucial that all of your panels are resting on a flat surface and are completely level.  If you attempt to glue the panels together against a wall, or any way other than flat, you will end up with a crooked joint and a “warped” door. The first step to join a Sing Core sectional door is to lay the panels on a flat surface. Any flat clean surface will work. For very large doors we like to use two straight beams laid on the ground along  to hold the top and bottom of each door segment.

2. Insert Your Biscuits or Spline into the Edge of One Panel

Each biscuit and slot are precisely cut to join with the greatest strength. Carefully, push or hammer each biscuit lightly in place into the edge of one panel. Then your panels are ready for joining.

3. Joining the Panels

The final step in joining a modern sliding or pivot door is to press the sides together. This can be accomplished a variety of ways, including gentle application of a sledge hammer, a few ratchet straps, clamps, or any other means you have of providing joining force. Once joined, the door is strong and secure, built to last, and can be finished and installed as any other Sing Core door.

Joining in Action

How to Clamp at the Join

When you want perfect alignment for very high tolerance applications, it’s best to sandwich each joint with a straight guide temporarily during the gluing process. In order to make your process easier, Sing Core offers construct custom true straight guides for your application and ship them with your order. These guides are made with the same high precision core material as our other products and offer superior ease and performance. Specify you would like clamping guides when you place your order and we will gladly include them for you.

Sing Beam

If you have a very wide and large door, you might consider ordering a straight Sing beam to keep the top and bottom of the door in process perfectly straight in addition to the temporary guide to make sure the door perfectly flat the entire length.
Let us know if you would like sing beams added to your order and we would be happy to oblige.

Summary

The flatness of your door depends on how flat your sections are when they cure. Any warping in the mold will be retained once the glue drys, so it is vitally important that you clamp up your sections precisely straight.

How to Measure a Warped Door

How can you tell if you have a warped door or not?

There is an industry standard method of determining whether your door is warped or not.

To determine whether you have a warped door or not you will need a length of string (longer than the length or height of your door) and a measuring stick or tape measure.

a) Tape one end of the string to the edge of the door and the other end to the opposite edge of the door.

The string should be straight. If there is a gap between the string and the door’s surface, you may have a warped door.

b) Measure the gap between the string and the door’s surface area.

If the gap is greater than ¼” your door is warped (according to AWI standards for 1-3/8 to 1-3/4 inch doors 3’-0” to 3′-6″ x 7’-0”).

c) If the length exceeds 7 ft. AWI standard applies to any 7 ft. section. Apply string to any 7 ft. span.

Contact your door maintenance company and send them two photos.

d) [1] Photo of the length of the string which shows as much of the door in its entirety, or at least from one end of the string to the other. Then [2] a closeup photo of your measurement of the gap.

Armed with these two photographs, which can easily be emailed to the millwork or door maintenance company of your choice, the recipients will be able to determine how best to approach the repair or replacement of your warped door.

You might consider replacing your warped door with a professional door which has Sing Core inside which can be guaranteed not to warp, bend twist or otherwise fail so as to avoid this pitfall in the future.

For more information, see: Door Warping vs. True Flat

What if my door with Sing Core inside is warped?

The same standard method of determining and measuring any door with Sing Core inside is used just like any other door (as noted above).

Contact Sing Core about your concerns about your door being certain to include the two photos as noted above.

If you have purchased a professional door with Sing Core inside, you may be the recipient of a replacement Sing door.

Note that upon arrival and un-crating of a door with Sing Core inside, a door may appear warped (and indeed it will be measurable). This is normal for a door which has been packed and in transit. Stand your door on its edge at least twelve inches away from any adjoining surface area, allowing it to acclimatize for up to 72 hours. Measure your door again and you will find it to be straight and true. If not, document for warp (as above) and contact Sing Core.

In the event that a professional door with Sing Core inside is warped (which is highly unlikely) your help in determining the cause of the door’s warping is appreciated. Please assist documenting the chain of custody of your professional door with Sing Core inside, including the millwork or door company which finished the door, and the installers who installed the door, to help us insure your replacement door remains warp-free.

1 Paint Grade Door

Our most popular door blanks are paint grade, and can be made to your specs including surface materials of,

  • Birch ply (most common)
  • Wood plywood
  • MDO
  • HPL
  • Other material, as specified

 

2 Wood Grain and Wood Stave Door

Besides paint grade for the surface, we also provide solid wood stave laminate on both sides of the sliding door. Wood stave is easy to work with and will last. Your Sing wood stave door will be more high precision than solid wood door (less warping, and twist and crack) due to Sing Core’s extremely high tolerance (+/- .006 inch) and, rigidity and high strength (660+ PSI) and professional grade wood grain and wood stave doors are certified and guaranteed not to warp, bend, twist, or otherwise fail for 50 years.

What We Do

What We Do and What We Do Not Do

We get so many inquiries about people who want Sing Core, we thought it might be helpful to help you better find ways to get Sing Core into your hands. With that in mind, let us tell you a little more about what we do and what we don’t do.

The Only 50 Year Warp-free Guarantee and full structure warranty

What We Do

We do the job that no one else can do. We do not do the work that is better left to more qualified and skilled trade professionals. The reason our clients seek us out is to perform the parts of the job that would not be possible without the use of patented Sing Core. It is the unique combination of what we do best and what the experienced trade professionals do best that results in creating the best if the best, highest quality end products possible.

We have solved the age old problem of warping doors, high end large doors that are lightweight yet extremely strong with the best warranty in the high end door industry. This same invention helps other industries meet or exceed the high expectations or requirements of their most demanding clients.

Sing Core is a patented solid torsion box hybrid core that is lightweight and high strength. We have developed and manufacture this revolutionary building material here in our Pacific Northwest factory. Part of our manufacturing process includes laminating flat exterior surfaces, or skins, to our proprietary core. Our clients often trust our lamination expertise and request our adhering additional flat building materials to the faces and edges, though many of the manufacturers whom we supply apply their own materials to the surface areas of our Sing panel.

We do offer custom interior blocking inserts, custom channeling for utility and wire chases, as well as custom lite cutouts for glass installation per architectural specifications.

We build the biggest lightweight high-strength panels, which can be built as giant slabs (subject to transportation limitations), large oversized doors, or as modular components to be shipped to and assembled on site.

We build to architectural specification only. We only ship to millworks, door companies, custom door builders and manufacturers of almost anything from furniture to bridges and aircraft.

We do build high performance sustainable Sing products with the flattest, straightest, lightweight high-strength material available (Sing Core) with the highest tolerance (+/- .006 in.).

We do participate with architects and engineers on the specifications of products which are built for specific applications for a guaranteed life-span (i.e., 50-year warp-free guarantee) to make certain the Sing product meets or exceeds high performance expectations.

We manufacture all Sing products in our factory in McCleary, Washington, assuring every item is proudly made in the USA.

We ship Sing products directly from our factory to our customers in the United States all over the world.

What We Do Not Do

While we can do a great many things, we leave certain areas of expertise to the industry professionals whom we supply with patented Sing Core products. That said, we do not build any finished product. While we are renowned for the most magnificent large doors built, and the only Eco-friendly lightweight high strength doors in the world, we do not build doors. These luxurious doors are finished by find crafts people who have the highest level of skill and competence which makes our product so beautiful.

We do not do any finishing of any Sing product(s) or build any finished Sing products.

We do not engineer, certify or have any stamped or code-approved stock items. For instance, we do not sell fire-rated doors, even though we build doors to engineer approved fire-rated specifications, which are rated, approved and/or stamped, but this is done by the door companies or other clients.

Likewise, we do not build sound-rated doors, even though we have built doors to architectural specifications which are used and may be rated as acoustical doors and sound proof walls (we even have a local sound testing and rating laboratory nearby, which may be used at customer’s expense). We supply the best door panels for door manufacturers and millwork to meet their client’s demands such as fire rating, sound proof, even bullet proof, etc…

We do not install glass in Sing products, although we can custom pre-cut and/or frame for lite cutouts, which are ready for glass installation by the company responsible for finishing the product.

We do not have stock items, with very few exceptions (i.e., trade show panels) and we do not ship to residences unless it is a job site being managed by our wholesale-approved client.

We do not sell retail. We are licensed only for wholesale and do not ship Sing products to anyone who is not in the business and qualified to expertly finish and ensure proper installation of Sing products.

What We Love

We love helping our architecturally advanced clients enjoy the most prestigious, high end Eco-friendly lightweight high-strength insulated products, panels, posts and beams, and doors that can be guaranteed not to warp for 50 years.

Sing Core Door Operation & Maintenance

Materials Overview

Sing Core manufactures door blanks made exclusively using patented Sing Core and patent-pending Sing warp-free stiffeners to create door blanks which are paint grade, or surfaced with any available flat surface building material, such as any available wood species, aluminum, brass, cold rolled steel, concrete, copper, diamond plate steel, fiberglass, FRP, galvanized steel, hot rolled steel, Kevlar, LVL, MDF, and stainless steel, just to name a few.

Receipt of Sing Door Blanks

In most cases, when receiving a multiple Sing Core order, where Sing door blanks have been shipped in a stack, or side by side, it is perfectly normal for even a warp-free door blank to appear to be warped upon receipt. Usually, the Sing door blank(s) which face the outside of the crate, or the top of a stack of warp-free door blanks will appear to be warped. By acclimatizing these doors, they will straighten out to their straight and true flat appearance.

Acclimatization

To acclimatize your Sing door core, stand your door on its edge at least twelve inches away from any adjoining surface area, allowing it to acclimate for up to 72 hours. Measure your door again and you will find it to be straight and true. If not, document for warp and contact Sing Core.

Storage

After you’ve received your patented Sing products, if you will have to store them prior to finishing and/or installation, try to store them standing upright, on end, with plenty of space in between. Do not lean them against a wall. If you must store them stacked, wrap in plastic and place one or two sheets of plywood underneath and on top of the stack of Sing products. This will help keep the entire stack similarly acclimatized while not in use, otherwise, you may have to re acclimatize the top and/or bottom Sing products later, when you are ready to use them.

Fabricating

Note: Use protective eyewear such as goggles or safety glasses, cover your nose and mouth with a filter mask when cutting Standard Sing Core Insulated Reinforced Torsion Box Sliding Door Blank w/Stiffeners Door Blanks. Always position the panel so the saw blades enter the exterior side first to avoid chipping and damage.
Any drilled holes or cut-outs must also be filled and sealed with an approved sealer to maintain the original panel warranty.

Finishing Sing Core Doors

With proper care and maintenance, professional grade doors created with Sing Core inside can be guaranteed not to warp, bend, twist, cup, or otherwise fail for 50 years.
Doors built with Sing Core inside are shipped to the millwork, door company, or custom door manufacturer unfinished. Finishing of the door should be completed directly following the receipt of the door blank to protect your investment.

Proper finishing is required to ensure the warrantied condition of a door with Sing Core inside. Please note that if a failure to finish your Sing product in a timely manner contributes to a defect, the defect would not be covered under the warranty — and the Sing Core warranty does not cover issues associated with improper finishing. Please refer to the warranty.
Sing Core is recognized as the leader in high quality Eco-friendly door manufacturing. However, finishing of Sing Doors is the responsibility of the experts entrusted with completing the details of door blanks provided.

The local finisher will coordinate with Sing Core to assure your door is finished properly in regard to finishing options to assure your door will perform best in your regional location taking into consideration exposure to the elements, changes of seasons, temperature and humidity.

Finishers will follow the manufacturer’s instructions regarding application, storage and disposal of finishing products.

Maintenance

A minimum requirement to assure the long-term performance of your Sing product annual inspections of the door must be conducted to ensure the warrantability of your Sing door. Annual cleaning, repainting, or restaining your Sing door as needed will ensure the performance of your Sing door over time.

Annual inspection includes checking for corrosion, peeling, or cracks on the door’s surface. Problem areas must be touched up as soon as possible to prevent further compromise or damage.

Any sealant material should not be cracked, broken, or missing. Any damage to the Sing door or structure due to improper or insufficient maintenance is not covered by Sing Core’s warranty.

Warranty

Sing Core professional manufactured doors are structurally guaranteed and warp-free for 50 years under normal conditions. See guarantee/warranty which accompanies your professional Sing product.
