San Francisco Museum of Modern Art

We at Sing Core are so fortunate to support the arts by providing museums and galleries with the best Eco-friendly museum displays and art display materials in the world which are capable of protecting sensitive works art.

Sensitive love storage bays, large art cabinets, and display materials with Sing Core inside are carefully constructed of low volatile organic compounds (VOC) yet have the most unique design characteristics which are not limited in size or scope.

One such project included 10 ft tall cabinets which are for storing sensitive items in the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA), located at 151 3rd St, San Francisco, CA 94103, supporting the arts in all aspects from storage to visual presentation.

If you visit the SFMOMA, you might enjoy visiting Jeff Koon’s $58.4 million balloon dog on display.

Due to the lightweight and high strength of Sing museum wall panels, entire display spaces can be reconfigured easily to control traffic flow for special projects or travelling displays, which are designed to be used over and over again without risk of compromising the visual impact of perfectly straight lines.

Only with the invention of patented Sing Core can museum walls be so easily assembled, disassembled, transported, stored, even reconfigured live in between showings.

And size? Size is no problem, anything from 10 ft tall warp-free love VOC cabinet doors to 40 ft tall sliding elephant doors. No project is too large for Sing Core which specializes in making the impossible possible without compromising the art, environment, or sustainability over time.

Art is precious and should be protected by the only building material which is made to last centuries and can be guaranteed to remain perfectly straight and warp-free for 50 years of faithful service without fail.

That’s why you find Sing Core in the finest historic foundations and art preservation foundations from coast to coast Sing Core is like the transcontinental railway which linked the coasts of America with its varying cultures and lifestyles by bridging the building material gap while preserving the most precious treasures from around the world.

And having access to this patented art and museum material does not have to challenge the budget of your nonprofit organization. Inventor Peter Sing has been known to partner with architects, designers, and artists to help support the preservation of the arts.

Museums and art galleries want a system that is guaranteed to be long lasting, portable, reusable, and easily assembled. Sing Core museum panels provide just that, with the added benefits of being lightweight and eco-friendly.

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.

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!

Wholesale Large Door Alternatives for the Best Door Manufacturers

The best door distributers represent the best in trusted door manufacturers across America for high confidence and superior door manufacturing ethics which translate to high quality and performance standards for upholding your credibility and professional ability to deliver only the best doors for your clientele.

What About Large Doors?

If you are like other distributors of the top selling doors from companies like VT Industries, you are getting some of the most coveted door jobs in your area of expertise. That is, for everything within the standard door size-range. Large doors are another thing altogether.

Large Doors

Large doors in your door schedule are going to be a problem. First off, your regular door supplier does not carry them, doesn’t want to build them, and doesn’t want you to sell them.

Why?

Because large doors fail. Even in the best of circumstances, with all the talent and expertise in making and installing millions of standard-sized doors, your supplier is unable to provide you with a door that will not fail after installation if its dimensions exceed 4×8.

Any door over 4×8 is going to present your valued client with problems. This is why large oversized doors are excluded from your standard warranty which covers the rest of the door schedule, because everyone knows that a large door will warp if it is over 4×8.

Where Does Your Door Supplier Go for Large Doors?

Every once and a while your door manufacturer takes on a large door job, which may include hundreds of standard-sized doors and a few large pivot doors, large sliding doors, or large hinge doors. What then? They don’t want to lose the job due to only a few large doors.  

So, what do they do?

The biggest and best door manufacturers in the world know there is only one trusted door manufacturer in the world that can make a large door that will not warp, bend, twist, cup, or otherwise fail, and that is Sing Core.

Sing Core Warp-free Large Oversized Doors

Enter Sing Core, the only large architectural door manufacturer in the United States who can build a large oversized door of any type or style that can build a large door of any material specified by your architect that can be lightweight, high strength, fully insulated, and can be guaranteed warp-free, not to fail, including a full structure warranty for fifty years.

Made in the USA

Sing Core doors are sustainable Eco-friendly doors which are proudly made by hand using safe domestic materials via our patented manufacturing methods using less energy, with very little waste, and a highly honorable respect for managing the best of nature’s materials and recycled materials for long almost service-free long life now and for generations to come.

Sing Core Door Characteristics

Besides being lightweight, warp-free, and stronger than steel pound for pound, Sing Core Eco-friendly doors bring many other high-end attributes to the end product which will be enjoyed by your clientele for years to come, adding even more value to your Sing Core door.

Some of the advantages of having a Sing Core door include being fully insulated for climate control and sound deadening qualities thanks to the high-precision (+/- .006 in. tolerance) patented and patent pending composite reinforced door core.

We Don’t Make Doors

Even though the best doors in the world are made with Sing Core inside, we don’t actually make doors at all. What we build is the best non-warping insulated door blanks in the world. We work hand-in-hand with the best door manufacturers in the world to provide your clients with the best doors in the world of any size, even huge mammoth-sized doors.

In this arrangement, as we help support the best door builders, we provide them with the non-warping substrate (what we do best) as we trust them with handling the door finishing, hardware, and installation (what they do best).

What We Can Do

We do provide your biggest and best door manufacturers with the best support system and can provide them with door blanks in various stages of readiness for them to complete in their door factories.

We are often called upon to make bulk runs of standard door blanks quickly, provide door builders with ready-to-finish door blanks prepared by attaching any available flat building materials, such as any species of natural wood grain veneer, natural wood planks, aluminum, cold rolled steel, concrete, fiberglass, FRP, galvanized steel, hot rolled steel, HPL, LVL, MDF, MDO, plywood, stainless steel, just to name a few, ready for your favorite door manufacturer or millwork to finish.

What We Can Do for You

If you have a good local custom door manufacturer or millwork that you work with locally you can order your Sing Core door blanks and have them sent directly to your favorite millwork or custom door maker for finishing, installation of hardware, and installation.

Sing Core and James Abke Turn Mercedes Van into Portable Home

Sing Core and James Abke Turn Mercedes Van into a Portable Home


James Abke is a professional of the highest caliber who is also an avid traveller.  He needed the best accomodations for his extended trips in his Mercedes van. Because of his unique needs he sought out a unique company who could do something which, in most industries, is normally called “mission impossible.”

Mecedes Van Luggage and Bed Light Weight Strong 1 inch accessories van

James chose Sing Core because of our proven track record of providing the most unique products that are designed to perform under the most extreme conditions.  Mr. Abke needed materials to build his special luggage rack and bed in the back of his Mercedes that would allow him to eat, sleep, and work in his van.

“The panels are awesome…I have a feeling they will last a lifetime.”

Mecedes Van Luggage and Bed Light Weight Strong 1 inch accessories (2)
This job required a material that would be extremely strong, rigid, with virtually no flex, yet light weight.  James Abke knew this was something almost no one could do. That is why he approached Sing Core, Inc.

 

The Force Behind Sing Core

 

Under the supervision of Master Inventor, Sing Core Founder, Peter Sing, we got right to the task, designing this system for maximum performance and lighter weight.  Using our patented and patent pending Professional Sing Panels. Sing Core is the best product on the market for these types of applications, because our core is stronger, tested independently in UW labs to be able to withstand 660 PSI of force, up to 90% lighter in weight than solid wood, more versatile, and more visually appealing than any other product on the market.

Mecedes-Van-Luggage-and-Bed-Design

Because Mr. Abke required only a 1” thickness on his panels, he could not use just any material.   He needed the strongest, lightest weight material he could possibly get ahold of. These panels had to be stronger than steel to endure the punishment he had planned for his Mercedes van conversion.  This configuration required that the system be able to hold up several hundred pounds of weight without showing any signs of stress. These panels also offer much more insulation and sound blocking capabilities than solid wood or hollow core panels, thanks to Sing Core patented and patent pending technologies.

See how small these panels fold up!  They are barely noticeable once folded for storage, and they are completely out of the way, thanks to James Abke’s implementation.  This design allowed him to fold down the panels so he could use them as storage or else move them to the side and use the full space in the back of the van for cargo.  No one else can do this.

 

Multi Purpose Design

James Abke was driving across the country in his van when he got the idea to do the unthinkable.  Because of his unique need for a system that would allow him to work, sleep, as well as, store luggage in his van he designed a system that would be able to accommodate all three.

Mecedes-Van-Luggage-and-Bed

 

“I worked with several Singcore agents to find a solution and came up with a panel that I was able to coat with a truck bed liner (Rhino-Liner) in order to make the panels nonskid and very durable.”

-James Abke

 

The icing on the cake was that Mr. Abke’s design was able even able to accommodate a bed.  Because of the ultra high strength, lightweight, warp free quality of Sing Core, James Abke was enabled to design a system that could easily accommodate two people, 500 pounds with no difficulty at all, without any compromise at all to the integrity the structure.  Having a bed in his van allowed him to sleep on location, anywhere.

Mecedes Van Luggage and Bed Light Weight Strong 1 inch accessories (16)

This was the perfect application for our products.

“It was imperative to me to have light weight panels strong enough to hold two people (for camping mode) or heavy equipment (in work mode) and be thin enough to be able to be stored inside a rather compact cargo van when they were not in use.”

-James Abke

 

James Abke’s design was simply one of the ways we can do this.  The possibilities are only limited by your imagination. We can even make drawers or other additions that can give you better storage options than you ever imagined.  For this sort of application that requires such precision, high strength, light weight, and warp free character. Sing Core is the only solution for this type of situation.

We do not make SIP panels.  SIP panels will bend, break, twist, and crack.  They are made very cheaply with Chinese materials.  Our panels are made from the absolute best materials.  They are made 100% in USA, using materials sourced from the USA.

The Most Extreme Doors in the World by Sing Core

Sing Core has been making doors for nearly 15 years.  During that time, we have made big and small doors, high and low, made of the best materials available on the market, built to last a lifetime, guaranteed to be warp free, according to AWI standards.  Without a doubt, every door that comes through our factory is a work of art, but there are a number of doors which have exceeded all expectations to become some of the most extreme doors ever made.

 The Most Extreme Doors in the World by Sing Core

Many doors have made it into the Sing Core Hall of Fame, but today let’s focus on a few of the most impressive doors.

 

 Sliding Doors

Microsoft Huge Sliding Door

We were approached by one of the leading door and windows companies in the world, Cascade Door and Hardware to make this door that nobody deemed was even possible.  With a span of 25 feet wide and a towering height of 9 feet tall, this door is, hands down, one of the largest doors in the world.

We were approached by Microsoft to accomplish a task known most often in the industry as “mission impossible.”  We rose to the challenge, because we knew we could do it. This door is stronger, straighter, lighter in weight than any other door of its size in the world. Only Sing Core can do this!

We have solved all the problems with large doors, because our patented and patent pending special construction methods allow us to manufacture doors that are stronger, straighter, lighter in weight, and warp free according to AWI standards.

With our large Modular Door System you can transport multiple panels into difficult to reach areas of a work site, then join them together to make humongous doors that appear virtually seamless and function as single, complete functioning doors.  You’ve never seen anything like this before, because no other door manufacturer can do this!

 When you need the biggest and the best, only Sing Core will do!

 

Pivot Doors

 Amazing Beverly Hills Pivoter

Magnificent Beverly Hills Pivot Door

OB Williams needed the best door he could get his hands on, when he was working on the most beautiful homes in Beverly Hills.  If you live in Beverly Hills, you need the best possible doors to represent your image, because unimpressive doors will damage your status.  Not only are Sing Core doors the strongest in their weight class, they are also up to 80% lighter than solid wood doors.  Moreover, they are warp free and eco-friendly, and far more visually appealing than competing doors.  They can also be made in any size with any skin.

Doors are one of the most important elements of design when building the most high end residential homes.  They must be strong, light weight, and warp free, according to AWI standard.  Because of our  unique patented and patent pending designs, our doors can be made with extreme precision, within tolerances of +/- .006 of an inch.  No one else can do this!  In the door manufacturing industry.  This kind of door is often called “mission impossible” and is selected by the most prestigious architects and designers in the world.

 

 


AIA Seattle Design Center Giant Pivot Doors

AIA Seattle Design Center Giant Pivot Room Dividers

FAIA Mr. Peterson, a senior architect for Suyama Peterson Deguchi, called on Sing Core to make these huge pivot man doors for the AIA Seattle Design Center remodel.  They needed doors that were extremely strong, yet light weight enough to work with their specialized door hardware.  Their idea was to create a gallery that could be instantly converted into a conference area.  Sing Core patented and patent pending technology made this possible by using our ultra light weight, high strength design.

Without Suyama Peterson Deguchi and Sing Core, AIA would not have been able to accomplish their tasks of converting their office space into a unique, convenient, practical, world-class conference room, gallery rife with style and elegance.

Terminal C-18 Film Screening Room, Minneapolis, Minnesota

The C-18 in Minneapolis, Minnesota Airport needed a double purpose wall, one side for their art exhibit, the other side for their quiet theater screen viewing room.  The problem was that these walls needed to open and close to allow access the the foyer area.

Terminal C-18 knew there was only one company they could count on to get the job right.  Sing Core rose to the occasion.   

The panels we manufactured and provided by far exceeded their expectations.

Miller Blaker 16 Foot Tall Pivot Door

Miller Blaker came to us with one of the most challenging jobs in the entire world.  They needed doors high quality enough to install on the top floor of the most prestigious building in the world.  They came to Sing Core, because they knew our proven track records of building doors that are not only best in their class in terms of structural stability and strength, but also light weight enough to hang on Miller Blaker’s hardware of choice.  

No one else can achieve the dimensional stability Sing Core can.

These doors had to be perfectly straight, dimensionally stable, and incredibly strong for use in such a challenging scenario.  Miller Blaker required doors that were 16 feet tall, 3 feet wide, yet only 2.25 inches thick.  Often these kinds of dimensions are what industry professionals call “mission impossible.”  Here’s at Sing Core, we make the impossible possible.

Moreover, we built these doors with a solid oak edge that makes the entire door appear like solid wood with no seam.  Only Sing Core can do this!

The best doors made with the best materials.

When Miller Blaker came to Sing Core, what we ended up with was a winning combination all around, one of the best architects in the world, paired with the best materials in the world, for doors that would end up in one of the best locations in the entire world.

 

21 Foot Tall Steel Pivot Door

One of the leading design firms in the country needed a very special door for one of their best customers.  They needed a door that was not only strong, but also straight because of the sheer height of the door. This door measures a whopping 21 foot tall, making it one of the world’s tallest pivot doors ever made.   Not only did this door need exceptional strength and warp free, but also, because of the magnificent size, it had to be extremely light in weight. What everyone else calls “mission impossible,” Sing Core calls a job well done.

Unique Hot Rolled Steel Sliding Man Doors

This beautiful hot rolled steel man door can be opened and closed very.  Check out these beautiful Sing Core doors we manufactured for Jet City Winery.  The hot rolled steel appearance gave them the amazing darkened look.  We used 20 gauge steel with edge banding, which gave the doors a very heavy look, like solid steel, but with the patented and patent pending Sing Core design, we were able to make them very light. 

Hot rolled steel sliding man doors

The best metal doors in the industry have Sing Core inside them.  We start with a super strong, super light, ultra straight panel, then encase it completely in metal, resulting in a metal door that is  up to 900% lighter than solid metal doors, while maintaining increased structural strength, better resistance to warping, and a much higher degree of visual appeal.  No one else can do this!

Giant Sliding Factory Door

Sing Core High End Giant Factory Sliding Doors Increase Productivity

Sing Core Large Factory Sliding doors can be used for all kinds of industrial purposes.  They are ideal for warehouses, hangars, factories, plants, manufacturing facilities, and other industrial and commercial scenarios.  Using our patented and patent pending technology, we manufacture doors that are easier and less expensive to install, lighter in weight, so they allow you to use less expensive hardware than doors made by the competition.

 

Huge 20′ x 12′ x 3.5″ inch Large Factory Sliding Door for Industrial Use.

 

At this factory, the workers were struggling daily with their large factory door that was warping and twisting, due to environmental factors.  Their door was excessively weighty and the door was extremely difficult to open and close. Door functionality was severely impaired, because of warping and twisting.  It was also peeling and falling apart, due to poor construction. The managers knew they needed to fix the problem, but not just any door would do. This is why they called upon Sing Core to solve their problems.

Sing Core tackled the problem immediately with their patented solutions.  First of all, because of the size of the door, they knew they would need to solve the weight problem.

Giant Factory Door Extremely Light Weight

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.

Factory Slider Strong Strength Test

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.
