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.”

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.

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.

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.

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.

James Abke’s new system can hold huge amounts of luggage.  Sing Core technology allowed him to have more than one layer of storage in the back of his van.  With our technology, we can manufacture panels that are stronger, more durable, lighter in weight, more warp resistant, available in more skins, with more bells and whistles.  Moreover, they come in any size, larger than any other panels on the market, they are more visually appealing, and come with many more features. Not to mention, they are the only panels on the market that come with a full 50 Year Warp Free Guarantee.  They are 100% made in America, using materials sourced from the united states.

The Most Extreme Doors in the World by Sing Core

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.

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.

Tech Giant Enormous Sliding Door

25-Foot-Door-Unfinished-large-huge-sliding-door-scale

We were approached by one of the leading architectural firms in the world 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.

humongous giant sliding door finished

We were approached by a tech industry leader 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!

14 Foot Tall French Door

Industry leading millworks, architects, and high end designers call on us to make all kinds of doors that present far too much of a challenge for other door manufacturers to construct.  This was the very door many of our customers called “mission impossible.”

one-man-holding-14-foot-french-door

Because pivot doors require exceptional strength and the need to be exceptionally straight and lightweight in order to function properly, Sing Core was the only choice.  Only Sing Core can create 14 foot French doors that are lightweight, strong enough to stand on, and warp free according to AWI standards, and visually appealing enough to meet even your most rigorous needs.  Quality is at the core of the Sing Core philosophy.

14-Foot-tall-French-door

This 14 foot tall French door can be easily carried and transported by just a single worker, yet, pound for pound, it’s stronger than steel and warp free guaranteed for 50 years.  Here at singcore, we make the impossible possible! Doing the impossible while providing you with exceptional quality products is part of our philosophy here at Sing Core.

Giant Sliding Factory Door

Sing Core High End Giant Factory Sliding Doors Increase Productivity

Back Factory Building C Door Huge Door 20 x 12 x 3.5 inch

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

This huge, warp free panel is 12’ tall x 5’ wide x 3” thick, yet only weighs 121 pounds.

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
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.

All Gratitude Apologies

We absolutely love the attention and support from a growing number of homeowners. When I say that we love it, I mean, I really love every one of you. We wouldn’t be where we are today if it wasn’t for you. We have new architects calling us every day because you are saying you want, “Sing Core inside.” I am honored and blessed every time a new architect, millwork or door company calls because of you.

The only time I feel awkward about playing a crucial part in your warp-free insulated, large oversized project, is when you call me because you want to get the product for yourself from me. It’s awkward because I could easily spend one-third of my day trying to explain to potential retail customers – who absolutely love my Eco-friendly contribution – why you cannot get what you want directly from me.

While it remains true that my invention is highly sought after as the solution for warping doors, conference (and other types of) tabletops, sign and tradeshow displays and a hundred other possible lightweight uses spanning distance with little or no support or deflection, I am only able to manufacture my material for use and finishing by others.

As much as you would like to have my product in your home (which I am humbly grateful for your love for my gift to the world), I simply cannot do it.

What I can do is to supply your favorite architect, millwork or door company with my invention, manufactured to architectural specifications. Then they can finish the item that you want (making my work look so beautiful) and install, or have it installed, in the location of your choice.

I don’t like telling anyone that I cannot do what they want, but I can only do what I do; that is to supply your favorite industry professional with the best base material that can be guaranteed not to warp, bend twist or otherwise fail (including full structure warranty) for 50 years.

I am sorry that I cannot deliver to you the end product that you desire, but I promise, if you seek out a professional specializing in finishing the best materials into the products you love, that together we can make all your dreams come true, far exceeding your expectations. This is my personal promise and commitment to you.

In the meantime, I am sorry to inform you, that any calls to me or my company will not result in getting you the product that you want. I apologize, in advance, for having to refer you elsewhere, but I give you my word that I will do everything in my power to assure that together, we will provide you with what you want, and so much more.

So gracious for all your support,

Peter Sing
