Hot Press Veneer Professionals

Hot Press Veneer Professionals are More Successful and Profitable with Sing Core

For years, Sing Core has been providing high-end local and nationwide hot press veneer professionals with premium core material that eliminates the need for crossbanding.

Let’s face it, nothing can compete with the beauty and elegance of a perfectly hot-pressed panel, and for that sweet-spot in the marketplace, those clients that demand the best and are willing to pay for it. The manufacturers and millworks that have Sing Core inside their hot-pressed products are making bank by specializing in these ultra-high-end projects.

For general contractors, we recommend using your local millwork to lay veneer, as it requires a skilled professional.

From the Inventor of Sing Core

Sing Core Inventor Peter Sing

Sing Core Inventor Peter Sing

I get asked by hot press veneer shops, if we are in competition with them? And the answer is, “No.” Even though we are specified by architects all over the country in large veneer projects, and mostly in huge veneer doors, we do not do the veneer. What we do is to provide our substrate to the best hot press veneer professionals we know. If a contractor contacts us first because we were spec’d on the job, we have him tell us which veneer company he wants us to work with, and my team is willing to help match up the best material and veneer services if they ask us for their advice, and that’s what we do.

I have invented patented and patent-pending solutions for high precision veneer projects that take the pain out of the challenges normally associated with big, long-spanning high-end jobs, anywhere from the San Francisco MOMA to the top of the World Trade Center’s Freedom Tower.

The top reasons the architects specify Sing Core is because

  1. We use only the best hot-press veneer companies to apply the best veneers, because I understand that doing veneering really great is an art, and we suggest only using the best artist, as you would on any important project.
  2. My company does what we do best, that is to provide the best substrate for veneer specialists to lay high quality veneer with the best guarantees in the woodworking industry.
  3. The people and companies that I work with are the best in their field and they don’t have to worry anymore about if this will work or how to solve problems associated with weight, dimensional stability, warping, or long lifespan. We’ve spent years in R&D to make sure that the biggest doors in the world do not have to warp anymore, and the biggest door companies trust me to make it so. In the last 10 years, they have not reported a single failed door, even including doors of immense size. Not one.
  4. My core is stronger than steel pound for pound and less than 1/3 the weight of doors made of solid wood core. Sing Core provides a high precision strong full bonding surface for veneering to that is so smooth crossbanding is not required. How high precision? Try +/- .oo6 inch, compare that to any other core material.
  5. Sing Core has insulation for enjoying warmth in Winter and cool Summers, is sound deadening for peace and quiet, and more dimensionally stable than other type of core such as foam core, honeycomb core, wood-based core.

You may not see everything we do because it is hidden deep inside the door or panel, but it’s there and many people can sleep soundly at night knowing that we have done all the hard work in advance, so that you don’t have to worry about endless maintenance calls.

I am so proud of my invention, that I put my name on it: Sing Core

What makes a hot-pressed panel worth so much more with Sing Core inside?

Architects are increasingly specifying their large high-end hot pressed veneer panelized walls, features, and doors have Sing Core inside (accounting for about one-third of all our products which are sent to the greater New York-area). The contractors generally contact Sing Core directly first, due to being specified. Though Sing Core does not actually do the veneering. Sing Core provides the high precision substrate that is shipped 3,000 miles from the manufacturing location in Washington State, to the high end millwork in New York (or wherever the nearest hot press specialist is near the construction site) to do the veneering there.

You will find Sing Core inside high-end hot pressed veneered ceilings, walls, floor, and doors in the most demanding architectural designs and projects.

Why?

Why must architects and designers go through such an unusual process to meet the needs of these high production and precision projects? According to those who are specifying and using Sing Core in their projects,

“There’s just no other way to do it.”

Large Size Concept Consideration

In an age when the biggest projects often include large spanning surface areas wrapped in beautiful wood veneer, the large scope of such a project is problematic. You are dealing with immense spans of material which is difficult to maintain straight and true, because at that size, most material will begin to move with changes in temperature, humidity, or other environmental variations. Sing Core is the only known method of keeping these spans straight and true. That is why the biggest door companies use Sing Core inside their doors that are over 9 ft. tall, because it doesn’t take much movement in a large door to render it inoperable. Then you do not have a door, you have an obstacle, or a bowed wall that needs to be dealt with. This leads to Sing Core’s primary function in these huge projects,

Warp-Free Hot Pressed Veneer

Particularly in high-end designs featuring the beauty of hot pressed veneer, the last thing you want is your project to express variances or changes. The desire is to have a completely flat surface that can span great length without warping. This is what Sing Core provides. It is the reason large doors (even extremely large doors) are guaranteed not to warp, bend, twist, or otherwise fail for 50 years, because they have Sing Core inside.

Highest Precision

High precision is a sought-after attribute of some of the most demanding clients, and Sing Core’s high precision (+/- .006 tolerance) gives them the high end performance that your clients are willing to pay extra for.

Lightweight Veneer Panels

Hot pressed veneer panels with Sing Core inside weigh less, not much more than a hollow core panel, but feature a fully insulated warp-free solid hybrid core that is 100% surface-area bondable.  We do not provide hardware or veneering.  If asked to lay veneer, we subcontract out to the best veneering professionals.

100% Surface Bondable

That means, no weak spots like you might see in honeycomb-type cores, which offer only 10% or less surface bonding area. This full-bonded surface area inside the panel eliminates delamination over time.

Fully Insulated Veneer Panels

The insulation value is important in high-end hot pressed veneer applications for both climate control and sound deadening capabilities within expansive structure designs.

Less Expensive to Deploy and Install

Keeping these hot pressed veneer panels lightweight translates to less expensive shipping, handling, and hardware. They are easier to and less expensive to transport, manage and install on site with fewer risk of injuries, even if the panel is exceptionally large.

 

 

50-Year Guarantee

The non-warping hybrid core allows large door companies to build large doors that can be guaranteed not to warp, bend, twist, or otherwise fail, including delamination.

We Do Not Veneer

We always recommend using your local veneering professionals for custom veneer doors. We do not provide veneer or install it.  It is our policy to subcontract veneering jobs to the best veneering professionals in the USA.

If you offer hot-pressed veneer services or cold-press veneering to your clientele, your highest paying customers will gladly pay you more if your panels have Sing Core inside.

Help

This section is to help in determining what options to choose for your very own Sing Core exterior door.

Choosing the right door size

There are two main measurements to know when choosing the best fit for your new door.

 

Rough Opening

The rough opening is the space in the bare wall before a frame and door are installed or replaced.

 

Frame size

The door frame size involves measuring the width of the bare wall before the door or frame is installed, leaving about 1/2″ extra for better fitment. You also need to consider how thick the frame itself need to be to support the door of your choice.

Choosing the perfect skin

Modern doors are available in a wide array of skin options. This exterior door is available in MDF or Wood, the species currently available is White Oak, White Oak with a Walnut inlay, or Hard Maple. See below for examples.

Factory Slider Strong Strength Test

So Stiff It Makes You Sing!

The perfect straightness of our panels is almost guaranteed in many situations. This makes our Sing door panels suitable for use in places were typical doors would be over worked. Pivot doors are a great example of a potentially demanding situation where SingCore really shines.

Because of the exceptional strength of SingCore panels, the single pivot point provided by the two pivot hinges will not lead to a potential for warping or bending under load.

Swing doors with long spans work perfectly well with SingCore inside. Panel sag is not a problem when you upgrade to a SingCore door with your next project.

The key to our system is the inclusion of our proprietary stiffening technology, pressed inside our “honeycomb” core. These horizontal and vertical stiffeners are custom designed for your specific door size, weight, and application. Correct placement by our crack design team can mean the difference between a saggy door and a finish product that makes your clients sing!

How to Specify SingCore for Your Next Project

SingCore is easy to include in your next project. We work on a panel by panel basis. All we need is the finished length, width, and thickness of the door panel for your project. Then, we build a custom panel to directly meet your needs and strength requirements.

Light Weight

SingCore’s panels are some of the lightest in the business. Some clients call our product miraculous. Especially when it comes to extremely large panels, that exceed standard panel sizes, our featherweight construction techniques really shine.

 

1/3rd the Weight of Comparable Wooden Doors

Our door panels or easily one third the weight of a traditional constructed door panel using wood, plywood, or other materials. If you need super light, our aluminum faced panels can grow to almost any size, yet are still stronger than steel by weight.

There are currently no other products on the market that can offer all the same light weight and high strength benefits of a SingCore panel.

Remains Light with Any Skin or Finish

SingCore door and architectural panels can be finished in a variety of skins, while still maintaining the internal strength and straightness of our patented core construction.

Panels can be finished to look like solid wood, with either our wood stave finish or premium wood veneer. We also offer a wide variety of metal skinned doors including: cold rolled steel, hot rolled steel, aluminum, and copper.

  • Wood Stave: walnut, oak, mahogany, cedar, fir, and more
  • Wood Veneer: walnut, oak, mahogany, cedar, fir, and more
  • Metal: steel, aluminum, and copper
  • HPL “Formica” – any variety, magnetic whiteboard, chalkboard
  • FRP
  • Plywood – luan, marine, birch
  • Paint grade

Save on Hardware Costs

SingCore panels are particularly useful in situations like huge oversize pivot doors, sliding doors, movable walls, and carriage doors where hardware for heavy doors could be quite expensive. Our panels are amazingly light for their size, and have save many of our clients quite a bit of extra expense by putting the weight of a very large door within the range of weights that can be supported by typical door hardware.

While our panels may not be the cheapest on the market, often time SingCore’s superior technology and craftsmanship can result in a net cost reduction.

Easy to Operate

Our panels have the strength, feel, and sound of a solid panel. But, their light weight nature allows them to be more easily operated, especially in large sizes.

For “moveable wall” type applications, SingCore is hard to beat. Don’t get caught in the trap of constructing a “cheap” stick frame constructed sliding wall, when in reality what you need is a specially constructed door panel. What you save by using two by fours in quickly squandered by excessive hardware costs and results in a poor quality result.

Easy to Handle

SingCore’s extreme light weight construction makes on site handling and transportation a breeze. After you order SingCore, your contractors will ask for sing panels again and again.

Combined with the benefits of weight, SingCore panels can be shipped in segments for joining on site. This can result in tremendous savings in shipping and allows for installation of giant panels of almost any size at any point in the project, even with limited access.
