Happy Holidays from Sing Core

News Release: Holiday Greetings from Sing Core

Santa is bringing lots of new BIG toys for Sing Core’s expanding warp-free door manufacturing facility. This has us all “Singing” and rocking around the Christmas tree as the Sing-elves are installing all the new amazing gear! We are celebrating the addition of some of the most powerful machines in the lightweight, high strength, non-warp panel, post and beam industry, further expanding the revolution of Eco-friendly material to create a better world is not just an inventor’s dream.

As you know, Inventor Peter Sing does not actually build doors, but he does offer his patented and patent-pending door technologies to the biggest and best door companies, millworks, and custom door manufacturers in the world.

These revolutionary door building technologies enable door companies to offer their clients the biggest, most outrageous, and enormously magnificent doors of any size, up to 50 ft or more.

And size, while it is important, and fills one’s mind with awe and wonder, there are other attributes you will be able to enjoy if your best door clients have doors with Sing Core inside, such as

1. Lightweight (a fraction of other wood-based cores)
2. High strength (stronger than steel pound for pound)
3. Fully insulated (for sound-deadening and climate control)
4. Impact resistant (kick this door and break your leg before you break the door)
5. 50-year Warp-free Guarantee (the only non-warp and structure guarantee in the world)

Our current Sing Core factory expansion is benefitting high-end door manufacturers to more than double their production without having to hire more skilled workers. This is accomplished by ordering Sing-manufactured door blanks which are less than 4 ft x 8 ft at a lower cost that it would take to manufacture themselves.

Prior to adding this new equipment we were limited as to quantity production, so only focused on our specialized field of super-large doors (anything between eight and fifty feet or more), but now we can make efficient quantity production runs of regular sized door blanks, just for you.

So, the next time you get a quantity door order, we can help reduce the burden on your normal production operations, and we will do that part for you, more often than not, for much less than you could produce them in your factory.

Saving You Money on Doors Through the Year

We are excited to be helping the biggest and most successful door companies in the world increase their bottom line by taking over the burden of large door orders which pertain to size (oversized doors that are problematic due to potential warp) and volume (large quantity uncommon door size orders). Let us pick up the slack for you and make those doors for you at much less than it would cost you to produce in your own factory.

We have the new equipment in our expanded factories to help you increase your bottom line as well. See: How to Save Money on Your Custom Door in 2020

Not limited to size, type of skins, glass openings, or style, including stile and rail look. 

For more information on grouping your miscellaneous door order to qualify it as a modified bulk order with many different sizes, see How to Save Thousands on Your Next Door Order. This is our most effective cost-savings program to date.

PLUS

You get the same Sing-guarantee. All of your doors could be guaranteed warp-free for 50 years!

Note: Most of the door companies we supply with blanks do not pass on our 50-year warranty (though they could), and only continue to offer their own standard warranty. How would a 50-year warranty help you on your next door bid?

That’s what we’re here for, to make your life and/or work easier.

Although we are famous for providing the high-end door industry with patented and patent-pending non-warp door technology. Sing Core has the best management team to provide an easy online pricing system. All you have to do is fill out the length, width, and thickness of your door panel, or any panels – even beams, which require lightweight and high strength.

You will get a drawing instantly online, and your preliminary price quote will reach to you within 24 hrs if we have proper information about your inquiry. There are endless applications for Sing Core for people seeking a sustainable Eco-friendly solution to build a better world.

Save Thousands on Your Next Order

There is a new door making technology to build door blanks for door manufacturers and millworks for any type or design of door with almost any door skin for less guaranteed by inventor Peter Sing. 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. 

By making the same size doors, we can cut the production time in half. We add special solid edging to the doors so you can trim them yourself.

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:

 

Quantity Application Description
1 Pocket Door 106.5″ x 45.0″ x 2.0″; 1/8″ 
2 Pocket Door 106.5″ x 23.5″ x 2.0″; 1/8″ 
7 Pocket Door 106.5″ x 31.0″ x 2.0″; 1/8″ 
1 Pocket Door 106.5″ x 38.5″ x 2.0″; 1/8″ 
1 Hinge Door 106.5″ x 31.0″ x 2.0″; 1/8″ 
1 Hinge Door 106.5″ x 30.0″ x 2.0″; 1/8″ 
1 Pocket Door 106.5″ x 30.5″ x 2.0″; 1/8″ 
1 Pocket Door 106.5″ x 20.5″ x 2.0″; 1/8″ 
1 Pocket Door 106.5″ x 30.0″ x 2.0″; 1/8″ 
1 Hinge Door 106.5″ x 33.5″ x 2.0″; 1/8″ 
1 Hinge Door 106.5″ x 34.0″ x 2.0″; 1/8″ 
1 Pocket Door 106.5″ x 37.0″ x 2.0″; 1/8″ 
1 Pocket Door 106.5″ x 31.0″ x 2.0″; 1/8″ 
1 Hinge Door 106.5″ x 31.0″ x 2.0″; 1/8″ 
1 Pocket Door 106.5″ x 33.0″ x 2.0″; 1/8″ 
1 Hinge Door 106.5″ x 34.5″ x 2.0″; 1/8″ 
1 Pocket Door 106.5″ x 46.0″ x 2.0″; 1/8″ 
1 Hinge Door 76.0″ x 24.0″ x 2.0″; 1/8″ 
1 Hinge Door 80.0″ x 36.0″ x 2.0″; 1/8″

1 Hinge Door 106.5″ x 19.0″ x 2.0″; 1/8″ 

Here is what the client’s order looked like after we had negotiated removing many of the variations of door sizes:

Quantity Application Description
6 Other Door 106.0″ x 40.0″ x 2.0″; 3/8″
7 Other Door 106.0″ x 36.0″ x 2.0″; 3/8″ 
16 Non-Door 106.0″ x 27.0″ x 2.0″; 3/8″ 
1 Non-Door 106.0″ x 19.0″ x 2.0″; 3/8″ 

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.

Patented Sing Core door substitution trick

We do our best to look out for the interests of the architects we work for and with, but there is only so much we can do. We know how important it can be to work with people that you can trust and we will back you up in any way we can, so exercise caution when working with others on your project.

For instance:

We got a call from the East Coast early in the morning. It just so happened that the owner/inventor picked up the call from an architect in Florida, who reported that six months following the installation of a high-end door with Sing Core inside, the “16 foot tall door was warped,” and that there was an unbelievable “bow in the door,” rendering it inoperable.

The inventor was shocked, “How could this be?”

The architect, as well as the architect’s client, were upset because they had specified and paid for a top-of-the-line door with Sing Core inside that was guaranteed to remain warp-free for 50-years, and here we were only six months in and already the door was not working.

Immediately, Sing Core took responsibility for the condition of the door and set out to find out how exactly such a thing could have happened. We took down all the pertinent details provided by the architect including the size of the door, the exterior wood species which was applied to the door, the approximate date the order would have been placed, the identity of who ordered, received, and installed the door.

Pictures were provided of the door which clearly showed that the door was warped and that it could not be used in such a condition.

We were tasked to find out which team worked on that door to hopefully discover what could have possibly happened during the manufacturing process of the door which might have caused it to fail.

With all our efforts we could find no record of the door being ordered or manufactured, but there was a match. A record of a price quote which was created and sent to the contractor who was named by the architect. No job order, no cut list, no approved drawing(s), no order for materials, no bill of lading.

This shed a great deal of light on the concerns of the architect and his client, for it turns out, no 16-foot-tall door was ever made at our factory for this project.

The door which was installed by the contractor and paid for by the client clearly did not have Sing Core inside. Any door of that size with natural wood grain on the surface would warp. That’s why people rely on Sing Core to keep their doors straight and true.

The Highest Grade MDF in the Industry

Medium-density fibreboard (MDF) is a popular material, especially because it can be precision sanded and remain very smooth which is an excellent surface area to treat, paint, or apply other materials, anything from vinyl and Masonite® to natural wood grain and metals. The upside to this material is wide open, while the downside presents a challenge.

The biggest problem with MDF is that it is not very stable or strong. The phrase we hear commonly is, “we love it, but it warps like…” (add expletive).

Patented Sing Core and our warp-free technologies enable us to provide millworks and artisans with a high end MDF surfaced material which is lightweight, high strength, and extremely dimensionally stable. Now, you, too, can have the highest grade MDF in the industry to use in your most important high precision projects without risk of failure.

This technology moves the smooth surfaced material which can easily be high precision sanded to a whole new level!

That’s why you find this revolutionary newly invented patented and patent pending warp-free technology atop the tallest building in the United States of America.

Now you can have a warp-free large MDF panel which our clients use to apply almost any laminate surface because it is so smooth, and you can even apply natural wood grain, and it can still be guaranteed not to warp, bend, twist or otherwise fail for 50 years.

Sing Core is the secret weapon used by the top millworks, large furniture designers, and the biggest and best door companies, to keep their MDF straight and true.

It is not uncommon to find Sing’s patented MDF-solution inside the most prestigious locations around the world and from beneath the sea (US Navy) to outer space (NASA) and everywhere in between.

large pocket door panel perfect straight

In fact, this is the business arena where patented sing Core shines: If you have a problem keeping it straight, inventor Peter Sing’s core and his True Flat Team can provide you with a rock solid hybrid composite core covered heel to toe in MDF which can be guaranteed warp-free for 50 years.

No other Eco-friendly lightweight material can achieve such feats.

Here is a photo of the inventor standing on a 13 ft span of his core suspended between two sawhorses.

You can see even at only one inch thick there is very little deflection.

And if that weren’t enough, here’s two people standing on a 20 ft span.

Even though Sing’s patented insulation reinforced vertical grain torsion box core is often compared to honeycomb core materials, it’s plain to see that no other lightweight honeycomb core material can compare.

Whether Sing’s core is used as substrate inside panels, posts, and beams, or as warp-free door core, you will find architects, designers, and engineers empowered by having access to the most revolutionary building material which is changing the way things are made.

You will find the most famous door companies in the world entering the field of large custom door making, which they would not have even considered prior to the invention of Sing Core. Why? Because everyone knows that once a door exceeds 7 ft tall and/or three and a half feet wide, you’re looking for problems, for which now there is a solution.

That solution is Sing Core MDF, the highest grade MDF in the industry today.

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.

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.

 

Door Graphics and Murals

Very Large Sliding Door With and Without Mural

Our doors make an exceptional surface for applying murals, canvases, or printed wraps and images.  This is an excellent way to make an otherwise standard looking door, beautiful and vibrant.

In recent years, graphics, scenes, or photos applied to the surfaces of doors that turn your openings into true works of art.  This style of door is only limited by your imagination!  Some examples are as follows:

  • Fine Art: Amazing portraits, scenery and landscapes, animals, objects like cars and still life images
  • Photos: Nature, wildlife, underwater scenes, forests
  • Designs: Patterns, colors, shapes, and other abstract art
  • Wood Grains: Any sort of wood species, style, or colors
  • Plants: Beautiful flowers, leaves, barks, and other plant based imagery
  • Textures: Pebbled, rusted, grainy, smooth, baked earth and other textures
  • Other: Anything you can imagine can be printed Sing Core doors as long as you have high quality electronic images and graphic files.

We start with a smooth tempered board or Medium Density Overlay (MDO) for a best quality finish, or select a wood veneer or paint grade option for your highest quality finishes.  This is only limited by your imagination!

We recently bought another factory to expand the services to you, and to celebrate, we’re offering you discounts on all Sing Core products. So, if price was a concern in the past, now might be the best time to try Sing Core inside your products.

Looking for More Factory Space

We’re looking to expand even more! So, if you have a factory with square footage to spare, we are looking to sublet from you. If you have or know of a factory for sale, we might be prepared to buy it from you or someone you know.

Free Shop Drawings and More!

Sing Core has invested a substantial effort in automation and computer assistance regarding its sales and production processes. This includes: semi-automated pricing, automatic shop drawings, and improved project management.

Our pricing model is inherently linked to the specifics of your project, and in the past has required extensive human review and manual data entry. Now, we have a better method where data is automatically routed from your quote request, calculations made, and forms filled out. This means our team has more time to review individual projects, and estimates will get back to you more quickly.

This systems also gives us the power to provide free shop drawings to any customer who requests them.

Additionally, our system improves our ability to follow each project from start to finish, so everything from initial quote request, to sales info, to final production and shipping is fully recorded and available to our team. With massive centralization of data comes the ability to generate forms automatically, and so reduce potential for errors and to keep our whole team informed about the specifics of your project. The bottom line is quick, error-free service for all our customers.
