In the push for creative space that expands the limits of corporate culture and challenges the norm of industrial design, designers are searching for new materials that make their vision a reality. One beautiful example of this trend coming to reality is this space shown below.
Ceiling the Deal with Lightness and Strength
Although Sing Core has wide spread representation in the large door market in high end custom and architectural projects across the country, occasionally innovative professionals will design our product into more creative works. Above you see our light weight, strong, and warp-free patented Sing Core honeycomb technology employed as ceiling that breaks the mold of traditional design.
In this application, our technology provides a solid backing for the stark straight lines that will maintain the crisp lines indefinitely. While the geometric pattern breaks the mold of lifeless square office spaces and imbues the open design with a creative touch, our lightweight torsion box internal grid structure makes the whole system easy to work with and cheap to hang. Extravagant hardware costs are not longer an issue with our material that is 1/3 the weight of wood yet stronger than steel.
Sing Core in Rehab Buildings
For a few decades now, companies have been rehabilitating old factories and square brick structures for using as cutting edge research and development facilities. Companies find that having a place away from the main corporate office allows for improved creativity and independent thought.
Abandoned building provide a unique and cost effective way to attract a younger, hipper work force while maintaining a centrally located position in America’s key cites that the upcoming generation of creative people prefer.
In this environment, Sing Core is a natural choice. Our material itself is a play on natural and commonly found building products transformed in to a form that transcends conventional reality. The strength to weight ratio of our patented core is almost surreal to behold and can be employed in applications that push the boundary of what is possible.
Built for Innovation
These spaces are designed to inspire creativity. These timeless building with their historical air of conformity filled inside without exciting out-of-the-box design presents an intriguing paradox that excites the mind to great effect.
Here at Sing Core we are constantly pushing the envelope by iteratively improving our solutions. Although our product is not flashy, our rigidity is the foundation upon which amazing possibilities are built.
Every time that we are able to contribute in our way to the creation of an amazing work such as the C1 Innovation Center, we can be proud of the countless years spend developing and refining our product.

If you want to find the best door in the world for you next project all you need to do is to use the best tool for finding the best doors, such as:
Google search pivot door
If you’re looking for the what constitutes the best doors, then you might search for the most expensive door. You will find that the door companies which can make the most expensive doors which outperform all other doors in terms of weight, strength, and longevity are the hardest to make. That is, unless you know the secret.
Best Door Secret
Pivot doors are problematic because they only have two points of contact whereby the pivot door is operated and anchored by the pivot door hinges.
Hinge doors can be secured by multiple hinges, even a full length piano hinge which anchors one whole side of the door completely. Even so, with one side fully anchored, a large door will warp, bend, twist or cup, causing it to fail. A warped door will compromise the door seal and may not be able to allow the door latch to secure properly.
High End Pivot Doors
Pivot doors rely only on those two pivot points, one on the top of the door, and the other opposite it on the bottom of the door. It is imperative for a functioning pivot door to remain straight and true, or else you cannot operate it properly.
Only the best pivot door companies can make a high-end pivot door which can perform over time without failing due to door warp.
50-year Warp-free Guarantee
All you have to do, is to contact the top pivot door manufacturers on your search results and ask them if they offer a large pivot door with a 50-year guarantee.
If they do, these doors will all have Sing Core inside.
With Sing Core inside your pivot door, it will be lightweight (a fraction the weight of other solid core pivot doors), and high-strength (at 660+ PSI, stronger than steel pound-for-pound).
9 ft wide warp -free weatherproof pivot door
You also have the added benefit of having a pivot door which is fully insulated for climate control and sound deadening capabilities (Sing Core can be found inside the most efficient soundproof doors in the world).
You Can Laugh or Cry
When you discover the secret of the most expensive high-end doors, you might start to laugh, but before you start laughing, think about this:
You might be crying, if you make the wrong decision, and find yourself in possession of a weak door which may fail prior to when you might have expected.
This is why most large door manufacturers will exclude large doors (over 7 ft tall and 3.5 ft wide) in the door schedule from the warranty following installation. Chances are they will start to fail at the next change of season.
21 ft tall aluminum pivot door
Then you might reason (as many have) that if Sing Core can make the best doors in the world the most valuable doors in the world, then Sing Core could make anything better, and it does.
Doors and So Much More
Entire homes have been made of Sing Core, which is available in post and beam and panel formats, changing the way homes are built, including all the interior and furniture inside a Sing home.
Sing Core makes everything better and its Eco-friendly nature makes everything more sustainable over time.
Guaranteed for 50 years but built to last centuries
Although not as tough as our original one piece door designs with a 50 year guarantee, our segmented doors still come with our patented Sing Core structure inside and carry a 5 year warp-free guarantee. And, they can be sold at a much reduced price.
In the past, very large and oversize specified doors were often made as a single piece and shipped whole to the contractor for installation. This is particularly true of very large pivot doors and sliding doors. With modern door construction techniques pioneered by Sing Core large doors can be produced and shipped to the customer in several pieces. These segmented doors pass on savings to the customer while maintaining the highest quality standards for warp free door construction.
Benefits of Modern Segmented Door Construction
Building a door in sections provides numerous benefits without compromise in strength, lightness, and flatness:
See Them Come Together
More Efficient to Build
Constructing a door in smaller sections makes the door easier to handle in the factory and easier to produce in general. Having more manageable sections leads to quick and efficient construction, at a cheaper cost. Doors constructed with our modern sectional approach pass on savings to the customer.
Cheaper to Ship
Doors cores produced in sections are built to be convenient and cheap to ship compared to a door built in one piece. This may reduce shipping costs payed by the customer to receive their door purchase.
Easier to Handle
Very large doors constructed in segments conform to common sizes. When you receive the door at your site handling it in segments is usually more natural for workers used to traditional sized doors than and 4×8 materials than handling an extra large door. Leaving joining the door until it reaches the site cuts costs and saves time all the way form our factory to your building site.
Strong and Stable
Sing Core doors shipped in sections and assembled on site maintain the highest standards for strength, lightness, and straightness. At Sing core we guarantee warp-free performance of segmented doors for 5 years.
How to Assemble a Sing Core Segmented Door
Assembly of a modern sliding door constructed using Sing Core technology without any specialized tools and equipment.
1. Lay Each Panel Flat
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. Slide a Spline in to One Side
Each spline and pocket are precisely cut to fit with strength. Our products are built with our 5 year warp-free guarantee in mind. Simply push or lightly hammer the spline in place on one side of the joint. Then your panels are ready to be fit together.
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.
How to Build a Modern Door

Here, at Sing Core, we get calls all the time about problems associated with wood stave doors, especially if they are large, oversized wood stave doors. These problems, such as bending, twisting, cupping, and warping should be celebrated as wood’s natural tendency to adapt to it’s environment. Unlike other synthetic materials, wood stave is sourced from a previously live authentic tree unique unto itself, a valuable resource in the eco structure of our planet.
A tree is a living, breathing part of our environment, made of the same atomic stuff we are, a sort of shirt-tailed cousin, which survives consciously for years by continuously adapting to its environment.
Even following the harvesting of a tree’s wood, the wood’s independent slices fight for their right to continue to acclimate and survive, expressing their individuality and uniqueness.
That’s why designers, architects, and pretty much the rest of us love the look and feel of real wood. We appreciate the look of it, the design of the individual expression of the tree’s growth rings, and it makes you have a comfortable sense of being home in a virtual hug from Mother Nature.
When wood stave (natural slices of wood) is applied to a door core material, the wood will move to accommodate the environmental challenges and circumstances which it is presented with.
In the case of cracking wood stave doors, the surface crack is the nature of the wood to adjust to the tension of the door’s core. The wood is still trying to provide you with the best door ever, so it sacrifices the surface finish and moves to accommodate the needs of interior core of the door. A crack-resistant finish will result in the tension being spread over a larger surface area, developing a warped or cupped door which can be more problematic to deal with than a surface crack.
Natural wood stave doors will move, warp, bend, twist, and crack, unless they are uniquely engineered with the proper composite materials to result in a wood door that does not move.
Sing Core provides architects, custom door manufacturers, and millworks with the best structurally sound composite door core which is lightweight, insulated, dimensionally stable, and stronger than steel pound-for-pound. Properly laminated materials, including the application of the natural wood stave to the patented torsion box composite core in concert with patent pending straighteners, delivers to clients a natural wood stave door which can be guaranteed to remain warp-free, including a full structure warranty, for an unprecedented 50 years.
A cracked natural wood surface door is likely due to a moisture problem, which varies in intensity between interior wooden doors and exterior wooden doors. Any wood door needs to be properly acclimatized to avoid cracking and excessive movement, also contributing to a wood’s tendency to move would be considering the way in which the wood was sliced, cut, or sawn.
Wood stave is a much higher concept in wood-faced doors than wood veneer as wood veneer which is not susceptible to cracking or warping, it is very thin and cannot easily be repaired when slightly damaged. Wood stave is a thicker natural wood product which can easily be maintained using basic woodworking skills.
When you spend $10,000 to $100,000 on a door and it warps, can you fix it? No.
It may be a beautifully and skillfully handmade door, but if it is warped, it fails to function as a door to any level of satisfaction.
These expensive doors are made with solid materials or core substrate material which is the weakest link. The core of the door determines the weight, strength, and long term performance of the door. Only doors with patented and patent-pending Sing Core technology inside can be guaranteed not to warp or fail regardless of size, exterior surface material used, or style of door for 50 years.
“We’ve switched from using LVL door core to Sing Core and no longer have to worry about warped doors.”
While LVL and wood-based door cores are fine for standard sized doors, these are not practical for large doors because they increase the weight of the door significantly making it more apt to fail, expensive to handle, maintain, and even potentially dangerous.
This is why the top door companies, millworks, and custom door manufacturers rely on Sing Core delivering the best door substrate enabling them to warranty wooden and large doors.
Would you settle for a 1-year warranty?
Most doors come with the standard 1 year warranty (large doors may only carry a 30-day warranty, or more commonly, are exempt from any warranty at all) because, as is well known and they say in the industry,
Sing door blanks are the best foundation for building the best doors. The Sing American French Door is revolutionizing the American modern door industry. Using Sing door blanks adds unparalleled core value to your doors; with it any size of door can be built that will not warp, bend or twist.
The technology that enables door manufacturers to build Eco-friendly lightweight high-strength doors was invented and is 100% made in the USA.

How can I get the best door in the world?
You can specify that your door be manufactured with SingCore Inside by any of door company, millwork, or custom door maker.
If you are designing your own high-end door you can have it custom manufactured by your local millwork being sure to tell them that you desire, “SingCore inside.”
You can sleep better at night knowing that you’re working with a revolutionary Eco-friendly building material that helps to make the world a better place for all Earth’s creatures.
* Note: STC rating varies according to size, thickness, skin, and other factors. Sing Core does not rate doors, although we are fortunate enough to have one of the best sound testing labs in the world, here in the Pacific Northwest. If you require a specific STC rating, Sing Core can build a door to your architectural specifications and have the resulting door tested at our rating facility for an official rating.
The best million dollar homes have the best doors, not unlike this $38.5 Million dollar spec home which was recently picked up by Sir Tom Hunter. Doors like these custom 16 ft. tall teak pivot doors could be in your home, and you don’t have to be a billionaire to have them.
This luxurious former James Woods $38.5 Million dollar spec home in the hills of Beverly Hills is an example of the kind of home which features Sing doors throughout. While featuring art by Picasso and Warhol, the art pieces were not included in Hilton & Hyland’s sale price.
Located at 1520 Gilcrest Dr Beverly Hills, CA 90210, this a Single family located in Beverly Crest, CA, in Los Angeles county the doors are large in size and may have electronic controlled operation which makes the lightweight and high strength of SingCore the perfect match for high precision and longevity throughout the life of a project as glamorous as this one.

Sing Core has been assisting the best high end custom door manufacturers create the most magnificent swinging doors using the best hinged door known. Only the best, most exclusive upscale architects, designers and ultra-custom door makers know if you want the best hinged door for the highest degree of precision, performance and prestige, you want your door to have Sing Core inside.
Hinged Door Warp-free Hinged Door Guarantee
Building a door with Sing Core inside is the only way to create a door that can be guaranteed not to warp, bend, twist or otherwise fail for 50 years, including a full 50 year structure strength warranty. While other doors may be guaranteed for 10 years, most or one or two years, if they are guaranteed at all. Doors over seven or eight feet tall are normally excluded from any warranty due to their tendency to warp the next season.
With Sing Core you can create Eco-friendly swinging hinged doors that are insulated, lightweight, high strength. No need to add extra door hardware to help keep the door straight over time (door manufacturers add extraneous hinges in an effort to keep the door straight). But warp-prone hinged doors, even if they have a full length piano hinge, still warp on the side that latches, and a door that does not operate and cannot be secured is not much of a door at all.
Airtight Hinged Door Seals
Maintaining a perfect airtight seal is of primary importance, plus the added insulation characteristics of any door with Sing Core inside increases climate control while adding sound-deadening qualities not found in other doors, especially in high end laboratories, industrial environments, commercial applications, and homes.
Superior Exterior Hinged Door Applications
Exterior hinged doors often cause problems (especially if they are over 7 ft tall) because one side of the door faces the interior of the structure while the other side of the door faces the elements.
Hinged Panel Doors
Panel doors are assembled of wood (or other material) with separate pieces oriented in cross grain patterns to help mitigate the potential door warping. While this method is somewhat effective, the resulting door does not offer much in the way of high precision, insulation, or performance, but they are pretty. The craftsmanship of a well-made stile and rail door is very elegant and the way the different pieces are joined together offers a certain intrigue when examining the door, especially if it is a wood grain door. But consider the Sing solution…
Sing Raised Panel Door
The Eco-friendly Sing raised panel door is a huge improvement over the traditional stile and rail door, in that it is extremely high-precision (+/- .06 in.) lighter in weight (a fraction of the weight of those solid wood panel doors), insulated for climate control and sound deadening, and stronger than steel pound of pound enabling professional raised panel doors with Sing Core inside to be guaranteed warp-free (will not warp, bend twist, cup or otherwise fail) for 50 years, including full structure warranty. No other door can do all that, and be so versatile.
While a Sing raised panel door can look just like a standard 6 panel door made via the old-fashioned stile-and-rail door manufacturing method, making a raised panel door with Sing Core inside is quite different.
The most important component of the Sing raised panel door is the patented Sing Core material which consists of a hybrid composite of vertical grain torsion box grid filled with rigid recycled foam insulations sandwiched between two stress skins and superiorly bonded with formaldehyde-free adhesive. This gives your door the strength and integrity you’ve always dreamed about. Install the door, and no worries about service calls due to door warp.
The Best Millworks and Custom Door Manufacturers
The best millworks and custom door manufacturers know that the only way to deliver a truly premium product to their high end clientele is to provide them with doors which they make with Sing Core inside, enabling them to guarantee their doors for 50 years, backed by Sing Core’s written guarantee. We take all the hassle and risk out of delivering the best base materials for the best companies and their best customers, bar none.
The Best Flush Doors
Sing Core provides door manufacturers with the best door blanks and flush doors to be used as the best canvases to showcase the artistry and craftsmanship of the finest custom door makers in the world.
Again, if you want to make your Sing flush door look like a panel door, like, say a 6 panel door, the door artisan simply adds the 6 panels and trim to the door’s surface. This is a common approach, especially in door replacement of historically preserved architecturally challenging maintenance and upgrades.
Sing doors are often considered the best replacement doors, especially in exterior door replacement due to the weatherproof door’s characteristics.
Your flush doors with Sing Core inside can easily be modified by adding custom molding, trim or cutting custom lite cutouts for glass installation in any shape at any location to achieve your desired results.
“How can I get doors with Sing Core inside?”
It’s easy. All you have to do is to contact your favorite millwork or custom door manufacturer and tell them what kind of door you want, including the height, width, thickness, style and look you want (you can even bring in a picture of one that you’ve found in a book, magazine, or on the Internet. They will work in concert with Sing Core to make all your door dreams come true.
You can be among the growing many who can proudly proclaim that their doors have, “Sing Core inside.”
Sing Core’s Sing Log Homes are highly regarded as the best log homes in the world due to the patented technology of Sing Core as applied to traditional wood logs resulting in the only insulated logs which would not warp, twist or crack; nothing short of revolutionary in a market that was constantly challenged by Mother Nature throughout the entire build and life of the log home structure.
It all started with the decline of the log home industry, in combination with the request of several patented Sing Log Home builders insisting that their large doors also be made with insulated Sing Core. At about the same time, people started inquiring about the possibility of using patented Sing Core without the log configuration, and the Sing Panel was born.
The main attention-grabbing draw of the Sing Panel was the best of two worlds; patented vertical grain torsion box/rigid recycled foam composite sandwiched between two stress skins with formaldehyde-free adhesive. Institutions, like NASA and branches of the United States military and research labs across America quickly took notice and started researching Sing Panels for a wide variety of applications.
The resulting Sing Panels were lightweight, extremely strong and had tremendous shear strength and resistance to deflection, something that almost challenged the law of physics in building materials. Sing Panels were independently tested in university laboratories and rated at 660 PSI and up (compare that to the 10-to-110 PSI of other honeycomb materials used in aerospace industry), depending on the configuration.
Now, large doors, extremely large doors (up to 50 ft. or more) could be made using this new patented building material… and no one knew how valuable a resource this would be to the entire door industry.
Before long, more and more people were realizing that doors made with Sing Core inside were out-performing AWI standards for door warp over and over again, setting a new standard for warp resistance.
5o-year Warp-free Guarantee
Based on a combination of independent research, scientific method, field studies, the introduction of a new stiffener technology (patent pending), and experience, Sing Core was able to deliver doors with the highest degree of precision and performance backed by an unheard of 50 year guarantee, which states:
Sing Core guarantees certified professional doors of any size not to warp, bend, twist, cup, or otherwise fail – including full structure warranty – for 50 years.
Of course, in order to be professionally certified, the True Flat Team at Sing Core must be involved with the design of the door and the door will only be guaranteed for the use for which is was built for because different applications require different approaches to assure their 50-year performance.
Widely renowned as the best way to build the best large doors in the world, it is not uncommon for people to think that Sing Core builds doors. This is not true.
Sing Core does not make doors
Sing Core does not make doors, yet the best large doors in the world are made with Sing Core inside.
While Sing Core does not make doors, we do supply the best ready-to-build architectural door materials which are shipped directly from our factory to the millworks, door companies, and custom door manufacturers who add the finishing touches to the Sing door blanks.
The resulting Sing Doors are the culmination of a team effort from the architect, designer, engineer, millwork, fine craftsmen, and Sing Core’s True Flat Team. It is only due to their combined efforts that Sing Core looks and performs so well when it is enjoyed by the end user.
The part patented Sing Core plays in the door industry is similar to jet engine manufacturers in the aerospace industry. Jet engine manufacturers do not build their own aircraft, likewise, Sing Core does not build pivot doors, we only supply the warp-free substrate used by pivot door manufacturers to build lightweight, high-precision doors that do not warp.
Latest in Pivot Door Technology
The latest area of expertise where Sing Core shines through among the door industry is in the area of pivot doors. Pivot doors are unlike regular hinged doors in that they are traditionally larger, thicker and heavier than other types of door. Plus, they only have two points of contact for anchoring, unlike a hinge door. (Hinge doors can help to minimize warp to some degree by adding additional hinges or hardware to help keep the door straight.) Not so, with pivot doors.
Our stock items are warp free with structure guaranteed 4×8’, 3” thick pivot door blanks for $499 each ($2500.00 value).
Our latest foray into the world of pivot doors has been wildly successful, which also allows us to have access to the latest in pivot door technology, such as the new FritsJurgens hidden pivot door hardware.
Our growth in pivot doors is growing to meet the volume of large sliding doors that we provide to an industry where keeping the door straight and true is also of great importance. For what good is a sliding door, if it is warped and unable to slide?
This can be particularly problematic when dealing with bypass sliding doors or pocket doors.
In any case, if keeping your doors straight and true is of primary importance in your project, there is only one way to build a door which can be guaranteed not to warp, bend, twist or cup for 50 years… and that’s to have,
“Sing Core Inside.”
Sing Core panels have been used as sliding door core, hinge door core, and French door core with guaranteed non-warp and full structure warranty for 50 years. You, too, can have the best guarantee serving the door manufacturing industry.
It is well known among the high end pivot door industry that Sing Core pivot door blanks are the only way to create the best lightweight, high-strength pivot door of any size (even extremely large in size) that can be guaranteed not to warp, bend, twist or otherwise fail (including full structure warranty) for 50 years.
Breaking News FritsJurgens Pivot Door Hardware
It’s no wonder the clients who use patented Sing pivot door core to build their high end doors are using the latest in leading edge pivot door hardware. While your pivot doors for the elite may feature any type or style of pivot door hardware made by any of the most popular pivot door hinge manufacturers, one new type of pivot door hinge is getting installed in more large pivot doors with Sing Core inside.
It has come to our attention that the new System M hardware from FritsJurgens in Holland is what all the latest buzz is all about.
What’s the big deal?
The big deal around Sing Core is always about big pivot doors. Not only big pivot doors but the biggest pivot doors because you could be talking about thousands of pounds of a large pivot door, which could be reduced to ten percent of the weight by having Sing Core inside.
Architects, our custom door manufacturers and millwork clients rely on the lightweight fail-safe aspects of pivot doors made with Sing Core to keep your project, not only at the elitist level of excellence, but within a reasonable budget. While those huge pivot doors can be very expensive to build and handle, the sheer weight of the door dictates the hardware necessary to accommodate such a door.
Installation of the hardware to operate an enormous pivot door can require extensive engineering efforts as well as becoming a burden on the installation, especially if it is being retrofit into an existing structure (not so bad if prepared for in a new structure being built).
Then comes along Holland’s FritsJurgens with the perfect match of sleek System M hardware that is the easiest pivot door hardware to install, especially in a retrofit application, carrying a weight of up to an 1,100 pound pivot door. That could be a 37 foot tall pivot door with Sing Core inside!
Concealed Pivot Door Hardware
The pivot closer is concealed within the door, not the floor! Making this the easiest to install pivot door hardware, requiring very little modification at the job site to install. Some of our custom pivot door builders are able to transport a completed pivot door system fully installed and pre-hung from their factory or millwork to the job site for the easiest installation of pivot doors ever, thanks to FritsJurgens’ System M nearly concealed hardware.
If you’re using a Sing pivot door blank for your pivot door substrate and you plan on using FritsJurgens’ System M pivot door hardware, all you have to do is let our design staff know when you’re placing your order. Sing Core can pre-install the required blocking necessary to accommodate the FritsJurgens System M pivot door hardware.
If you’re upgrading an existing non-Sing pivot door to a pivot door with Sing Core inside, you will be glad to know that FritsJurgens’ new System M closer works with existing FritsJurgens top plate and top pivot.
At present, this is a leading-edge well-kept secret among the most elite high end custom door manufacturers, but we thought you would like advance notice before this product becomes more widespread in use across the United States.
