Sing Pivot Door

The pivot door is the most challenging door in high end homes. It is very critical to keep a large pivot door warp-free. Very tall and wide pivot doors do not have the advantage of side hinges to help keep (at least one side of) the door straight. Traditionally manufactured large doors utilize wood-based core or a door frame system just like the walls in an average house. There is no way to keep the door straight, and it will not withstand the use and abuse from daily impact. A wall cannot take impact, like a door, without failing. A 2×6-framed wall will not function well as a door over time.

The Only 50 Year Warp-free Guarantee and full structure warranty

Patented Sing Core technology is the secret ingredient of the most high end door manufacturers throughout the USA, not because of our 50 year warp-free guarantee, but more due to Sing Core being the most high precision building material in the composite industry at +/- .006 inch. Not only does Sing Core make the door strong (at 660+ PSI, stronger than steel pound for pound) and help to keep the pivot door from warping, but the door manufacturers are able to make the door so beautiful to look at and admire.

If you’re an architect or designer designing a large pivot door for your customer, you should ask your door manufacturer what their warranty is on the door. In most cases the answer will be one year, and for large pivot doors prone to warp, they will likely be excluded from the warranty. Wouldn’t you rather do, cry over your warped pivot door, or “Sing” about 50 years of fail-free service?

Remember, Sing Core does not actually build the doors, we only supply the best door manufacturers, millworks, and custom door makers with the best base material to deliver the high end performance you want. If your pivot door company does not offer a 50-year warp-free guarantee, you should make sure your architect specifies, “Sing Core inside,” the doors you want to last for as long as your home.

If you’ve spent millions of dollars on your home, your front pivot door (the focal point of the house) should not only look beautiful, it should be enjoyed for the next 50 years worry-free, because you are not going to have to be concerned about it warping.

See this short video clip of a designer of this spec home purchased for $38.5 million dollars talking about his large pivot door with Sing Core inside.

Designer and Architects are establishing a new trend in the architectural impact of structures that garner attention at first glance by greeting visitors with a large pivot door. The larger the front pivot door, the more impressive and attention-grabbing.

Large pivot front doors create the greatest impact when a structure is seen for the first time. These oversized pivot door are big and thick, and the bigger the better. These big pivot doors are taller, wider and heftier than other traditional front door styles. Even real estate developers are installing large pivoting entry doors in high end homes for that extra hit in the curb appeal presentation.

Though some door manufacturers build and stock standard pivot doors, ready to install, the high end large pivot doors are custom manufactured for each installation by millworks, craftsmen or custom door manufacturers. Each pivot door is like an individual work of art.

Pivot Door Swing

Large extreme edge pivoting hardware for large swing wooden room dividers with man door Pivot doors are often thought of as having a center pivot point. A pivot door with a center pivot defines the maximum access as basically on-half the door width, because in the fully open position, the pivot door blocks the center of the opening due to the location of the pivot. Large pivot doors may be no problems as a 10 foot wide pivot door can still have a 5 foot access opening.

Center pivots are not your only options when considering a pivot door, as the pivots can be placed at any location. Moving the pivot point of your pivot door more to one side or the other creates a greater egress area on one side than the other. For maximum opening, an extreme edge pivot point can be used for your pivot door, so that it operates very similarly to a swing hinge door. Example: 10×12 extreme edge double pivot doors in the Center for Architecture & Design, Seattle, Washington are each twelve feet wide, five inches thick and open for a full 23 feet of access (also feature a man door for easy access when in the closed position).

Tall Pivot Doors

21 ft tall edge pivot doorA large pivot door can span from floor to ceiling of any structure as well as being very wide and thick.

Pivot Sliding Door

Another growth segment in pivoting doors is a method that combines the best of two types of door hardware to develop a pivot sliding door using multiple floor to ceiling pivoting door panels alternatively hinged and retrofitted in sliding door hardware to produce large accordion door wall systems. These pivot sliding door wall units create complete separation between any two rooms, functioning as folding stacking doors, yet when fully opened reveal one large space.

Pivot Door Materials

Pivot doors can be made of any flat building material including materials that would be impossible to make a hinge door due to the weight. The design of the pivoting hardware can accommodate a pivoting entry door that is many, many times heavier than any hinge door.

Large pivot door can be manufactured using available materials such as cement, metals (aluminum, cold rolled steel, copper, galvanized steel, hot rolled steel, stainless steel, steel diamond plate, etc…), natural or exotic woods (alder, bird’s eye maple, cedar, cypress, mahogany, olive, redwood, walnut, willow, etc… ), stone (granite, limestone, marble, sandstone, slate, etc…), just to name a few.

Heavy Pivot Doors

Though large pivot doors can span from floor to ceiling and the pivot door hardware can handle heavy weights, the challenge to overcome is the obvious one: The large size and heavy weight can create problems over time causing the need for routine ongoing maintenance dealing with issues that compromise either the pivot door or the structure itself.

Heavy pivot doors can cause undue stress on both the hardware and the structure, requiring maintenance on the pivot hardware, frame and possibly the structure under regular heavy use.

Light Pivot Doors

Pivot door room dividers insulated wood lightweight high strength
One way to optimize large pivot doors for weight is to use a strong lightweight substructure that will not compromise the structure of the door. SingCore large pivot door substrate is perfectly designed for large pivot doors sporting additional features besides creating a solid composite door that weighs a fraction of an otherwise solid door.

Modern pivot doors with patented SingCore inside are strong (660 PSI, stronger than steel pound for pound) and the torsion box structure grids are packed with rigid insulation (for added R-value and sound deadening capabilities).

Using SingCore inside your pivot door can transform any heavy pivot door into a lightweight pivot door.

Large Pivot Doors Warp

Warping large pivot doors are one of the chief problems associate with large pivot doors – or any large doors, for that matter – especially if the large pivot entry doors are made using natural woods, which are elegant when installed but tend to move according to variances in heat, moisture and other environmental conditions.

There’s really no way around the natural characteristics of wood grain to bend, warp, cup or twist – that is – until now…

Guaranteed Warp-free Large Pivot Doors

Only large modern pivot doors with professional SingCore inside can be guaranteed to remain structurally sound and warp-free for 50 years.

That’s 50 years of high precision, high performance, low maintenance enjoyment of your breathtaking very large pivot door, guaranteed.

Breaking News: Concealed Pivot Door Hardware

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.

The Only 50 Year Warp-free Guarantee and full structure warranty

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.

Breaking News

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.

According to John Derosa, “The M is a wonderfully engineered, highly advanced pivot closer that is changing the technology of pivot doors. The fully adjustable M is the closer solution for large, heavy pivot doors without having to install any hardware into the floor or the ceiling.”

Here are some of what you can expect from your FritsJurgens System M Closer:

  • Everything in the door, nothing in the floor or ceiling
  • Super thin profile for min thickness doors 1 3/4″ (or thinner?)
  • 5 different models to choose from based on door width, weight, location of pivot (M32A, M32B, M32C, M32D, M32E)
  • Holds 661 lb doors and up to 1,100 lb doors under special circumstances
  • Adjustable speed, backset, floor plate and more adjustments

You can get more information and details about how to integrate the FritsJurgens System M pivot door hardware into your large pivot doors with Sing Core inside by contacting our friends at:

Unique Front Doors

When it comes to unique front doors, the top designers, architects and visionary end users, think outside the box to achieve the results of creating the best and most unique front doors of all.

The Only 50 Year Warp-free Guarantee and full structure warranty

Why all this fascination with unique front doors?

Think about it, what’s the first thing you see when you approach any structure? In most, if not all, cases, your first impression, the first noticeable component of any structure (beside the structure itself) is the front door. If the front door is unique and has enough impact, it will leave a lasting impression, reminding you of your visit at this specific location, every time you recall seeing such a unique front door.

Unique front doors are many times more effective than a calling card. In this day and age, anyone can find you within a few clicks, but how will they remember you?

How do you create unique front doors?

By thinking outside the box. First, you must determine what a unique door is not. Standard doors are a particular size and operate by swinging this way or that utilizing hinges installed on one side of the door. So, for your front door to be unique you must avoid both standard size and side mounted swing hinges.

 

Surprising your visitors with either sliding doors or pivot doors that are large in size are effective ways to leave a lasting impression as unique front doors.

Sliding Unique Front Doors

Sliding door make excellent unique front doors because you don’t see them every day, and if they are fairly large sliding doors, then even better. Sliding doors are the most popular alternative to the swing door, because they can still be thin (standard door thickness) but slide side to side. The structure will have to be wide enough to accommodate the sliding door, or in the case of double sliding door, the pair.

Sliding front doors can operate in full view exposing the sliding door in the open position, or as pocket doors, where the sliding doors are concealed in the open position as they retract into a cavity on the wall. Sliding pocket doors are a unique, more advanced approach to the unique front door quandary.

Sliding doors are standard fare, unless they are large sliding doors. Only then, designers and engineers start to run into problems associated with handling, accommodating, and the maintenance of large sliding doors over time. Why? Because large sliding doors warp, and when they do, the results are not pretty. That’s when architects and engineers begin specifying Sing Core in their designs. Large sliding doors with Sing Core inside are the only Eco-friendly lightweight high strength large sliding doors that can be guaranteed not to warp, twist, bend or otherwise fail (including full structure warranty) for 50 years!

Pivoting Unique Front Doors

The most impressive lasting impressions are left by structures hosting large pivot doors. Hands down large pivot doors outperform any other type of door in terms of garnering attention and leaving them something to think about (and talk about around the water cooler).

And big pivot door are not only taller and wider than the normal run of the mill side swing doors, but to raise the stakes even more, they can be many times thicker than an average door, guaranteed to make anyone stop and take notice.

Of course, these impressive large pivot doors are going to heavier than imaginable just by the sheer enormity of expanded height, width and thickness of your unique front door. This causes great expense in terms of manufacturing, shipping, handling, installation, hardware, and maintenance over time due to warping.

Exterior Pivot Doors

Whether you’ve decided to go with unique sliding doors or pivot doors, realizing that your unique front door will be presenting certain challenges, such as having one side facing the interior environment and the other facing the elements. That’s a recipe for disaster, because it will cause your door to move, and too much movement will compromise the doors integrity. Your unique front door might look gorgeous, but if it won’t secure or seal properly, what good is it?

Built with Sing Core Inside

When you build your large sliding doors or big pivot doors with Sing Core inside, you imbue your Eco-friendly insulated unique front doors with incredible attributes, such as, lightweight (a fraction the weight of other high performance large doors), high-strength (660+ PSI, stronger than steel pound for pound. This accounts for Sing Core’s responsibility in the creation of the best sliding doors and pivot doors.

Any Flat Building Material

Since we build to architectural specification, door blanks can be made and prepared with any flat building material as exterior finish, including any available species of wood (even wood planks), aluminum, brass, concrete, copper, fiberglass, FRP, glass, HPL, Kevlar, LVL, MDF, metal, steel (cold rolled steel, galvanized steel, hot rolled steel, stainless steel), just to name a few. This expands your potential creativity further knowing you are not limited to conventional building methods to achieve the high marks Sing Core brings to the table.

How to Build the Best Doors

Patented Sing Core is a unique hybrid solid structure core that maximizes old and new technologies in a honorably sustainable way by first using a modified torsion box structure (using vertical instead of horizontal wood grain), then the otherwise empty voids are filled with rigid recycled foam (EPS standard, other type of rigid foam/insulation available) adhered and sandwiched between two stress skins. The resulting large sliding door or big pivot door (which could feature any flat building material on the surface) is the only way to build a lightweight sliding door or huge pivot door without risk of failure, plus your premium unique pivot door could be covered by our,

50 Year Warp-free Guarantee

With Sing Core inside all of your sliding doors and pivot doors could be guaranteed not to fail for 50 years, including structure failure. Even if your guaranteed sliding or pivot door is damaged in any way (like running into it with forklift blades) it can be repaired to new condition utilizing basic carpentry skills without compromising the strength, performance or longevity of your unique front door.

Wooden Pivot Doors

Wooden pivot doors are probably the most problematic pivot doors with the challenges facing the end users associated with warping. Wooden pivot door warp is a long-standing concern of architects and designers who desire the beauty and grace of a solid wood grain but know that a wooden pivot doors, especially a wooden large pivot door, is going to mean trouble down the line; that is unless your wooden pivot door has Sing Core Inside.

The only 50 year warp-free guarantee and full structure warranty

Sing Core is the solution to the majority, if not all, of the wooden pivot door problems faced by architects and designers, such as,

Wooden Pivot Door Warp

Obviously the number one concern with wooden pivot doors is the likelihood of the pivot door to warp, especially if they are featured as pivot entry doors. As beautiful as wood grain can be, it is the very nature of the grain which causes the door to move according to the environment it is exposed to. The only way to get around warping wood exterior pivot doors in an Eco-friendly solution that is lightweight, high strength and fully sustainable is to have Sing Core inside the wooden pivot door.

How to Build a Warp-free Wooden Pivot Door

To build a warp-free pivot door, first, you decide on the wood that you want to use. Every wood grain is different and the more wood/wood grain that your pivot door is hosting as well as the intended use of the door (like will one side be facing the interior and one side exposed to the elements) will determine the degree of true flat expertise that will be required for engineering the perfect warp-free wooden pivot door.

Once you have determined the wood thickness, grain and pivot door’s exposure, the true flat team at Sing Core uses their years of expertise in developing a wood composite door that can be guaranteed to remain straight and true for 50 years guaranteed, regardless of size.

The secret ingredient is inside the pivot door’s core. Patented Sing Core is a composite solid substrate which accomplished all the heavy lifting in making a wooden pivot door which is straight and true. Sing Core is a vertical grain torsion box with small grids (2 to 3 inches) where the voids of the torsion box are filled wall to wall with rigid recycled foam insulation. It is this unique combination of natural vertical grain torsion box framing willed with foam that gives it its strength (660 PSI) and resistance to warp.

In extreme circumstances, a patent-pending composite stiffener can be combined with Sing Core to maintain warp-free performance over the 50-year premium guarantee period; even of your pivoting door is 40 ft. tall; Sing Core is the only pivot door in the world which can offer such high performance and longevity over time.

Other Sing Wooden Pivot Door Characteristics

When your wooden pivot door has Sing Core inside, you also get to enjoy all the other benefits that come with the package at no extra charge. For instance,

Lightweight Wooden Pivot Doors

Thanks to Sing Core, your wooden pivot doors can weigh much less than any other pivot door would weigh with any other solid wood or other heavy weight pivot door core material. The advantages of having such a lightweight wooden pivot door means you,

1. Spend much less on pivot door hardware, because the heavier the door, the more expensive the heavy duty pivot door hardware will be to accommodate the increased wooden pivot door weight.
2. Spend less transporting, maneuvering and installing a lightweight pivot door, reducing travelling and installation costs exponentially.
3. Cost savings over time due to little or no maintenance requirement. The lightweight in conjunction with warp-free attributes means very little maintenance (due to less stress and strain ion both the hardware and the structure) is necessary over time.
4. Even more cost savings when featured as a insulated pivot front door, or other exterior pivot door application, reducing heating and cooling costs throughout the year.

But that’s not all; your wooden pivot door with Sing Core inside can also be a,

High Strength Wooden Pivot Door

Sing Core is the most revolutionary lightweight, high strength building material to hit the pivot door industry in years. Here’s a picture of the inventor of Sing Core standing on a 1 inch thick panel suspended between two saw horses with little or no deflection.

This can give you an idea of the incredible strength of the patented torsion box composite design, which imbues your wooden pivot door with characteristics that nearly defy the natural laws of physics as we know them.

This 660 PSI strength is massive when compared to other core materials used in marine and aerospace industries, That’s why you can find Sing Core in the depths of the sea (US Navy) to outer space (NASA) and everywhere in between, it’s lightweight and stronger than steel pound for pound.

Insulated Wooden Pivot Doors

And who would have thought of packing your pivot door with insulation wall-to-wall? While not intended to perform this function, the ability to have high performance insulated pivot entry doors, becomes a highly sought after feature.

Inherit in the design of Sing Core is the inclusion of rigid foam insulation which provides increased climate control and sound deadening qualities for additional safety, security, greater satisfaction and enjoyment to the end user for a long time.

High End Wooden Pivot Doors

Metal pivot doors are gaining in popularity among high end homes, government agencies, scientific laboratories and elite commercial establishments. So, whether your interest in a metal pivot door is residential or industrial, Sing Core can help you build one of the best metal pivot doors in the world.

The only 50 year warp-free guarantee and full structure warranty

What makes Sing Core’s metal pivot door so special?

Metal pivot doors with Sing Core inside exceed the expectations of door manufacturers around the world in an Eco-friendly manner excelling in significant reduction in weight while remaining high precision, high performance, and stronger than steel pound for pound. No other lightweight door can deliver such results in terms of lightweight and high strength. That’s why only Sing professional metal pivot doors can be guaranteed not to warp, bend, twist of otherwise fail for 50 years.

What’s the number 1 use of Sing Metal Pivot Doors?

No matter whether the installation is in a high end multimillion dollar home, or a commercial application, the highest and best use of your Sing metal pivot door is as an impressive pivot front door.

Pivot Front Door

Pivot front doors are more impressive when they are stylishly finished, but even more impressive than the exterior material used, the size of the metal pivot door is even more important. The emphasis on being large and oversized plays an important role in the first impression of anyone viewing a large pivot door the first time you lay eyes on the project.

The most significant highly memorable feature of any structure is the visual impact of a large, oversized pivot door. In fact, the bigger, the better. The height, the width and the thickness of your pivot front door makes all the difference.

Metal Pivot Door Detail

The detail of the metal pivot door is invaluable, and every detail will contribute to the success or failure of your pivot front door. A large metal pivot door, while it is very impressive, does pose a number of problems associated with such a large monolithic structure. The first hurdle is in the managing of the weight of a large metal pivot door. To make it out of solid metal, is generally not practical, because the sheer weight of the large pivot door will create problems for the pivot door hardware as well as the frame and structure surrounding the big metal pivot door. The answer lies in Sing Core’s ability to build a

Lightweight Metal Pivot Door

Reducing the weight of your metal pivot door significantly reduces the cost of the pivot door hardware (as it is calculated based on the weight of the door) which can cost many times the cost of the pivot door itself. This also reduces the cost of shipping, handling and installing an otherwise heavy pivot door. While there are other options for dealing with the issue of weight of a particular pivot door, none are more dimensionally stable or

High Strength Metal Pivot Door

Sing Core is the only method of creating a lightweight, high strength metal pivot door. The strength is achieved by starting with a patented torsion box substructure where the otherwise empty boxes are filled with rigid insulation and sandwiched between two sheets of plywood to provide a solid composite structural core which delivers unparalleled warp resistance and strength (660 PSI). Not only are these metal pivot doors lightweight and incredibly strong, they are the only metal doors that can come with a

50 Year Warp-free Guarantee

That’s right. Your professional Sing metal pivot door can be lightweight, high strength and guaranteed not to warp- bend, twist of otherwise fail for 50 years, including a full structure warranty against any other potential failure.

Metal Pivot Entry Doors

Your metal pivot entry door caries along with it a great deal of responsibility, which makes it a security door, either as an intentional specification, or implied as a security barrier. So, it is imperative that your pivot entry doors are strong enough to ward off security compromises as well as being fully

Insulated Metal Pivot Doors

Every Sing metal pivot door is fully insulated to deliver the best climate control and sound deadening capabilities. This insulation is important because in most, if not all cases, your pivot entry door separates two extremes, one being the exterior surface area facing the elements as in the case of an exterior pivot front door, while the other side faces the structure’s interior, which could be vastly different, especially in terms of extreme weather conditions.

Metal Pivot Door Prices

We have a very simple method of determining the price of your metal pivot door. All you need is the height, width and thickness of the door as well as the type of metal and gauge desired on the metal pivot door’s surface. Click Here for Pricing.

Aluminum Pivot Doors

Aluminum pivot doors are the most popular of all large metal pivot doors, which we specialize in.

Pivot Door Systems

Sing Core helps to support your favorite millwork or pivot door company to create the best pivot door systems available in the world today. Your large architectural pivot door is likely one of the most striking and important features leaving a lasting impression on visitors.

The only 50 year warp-free guarantee and full structure warranty

As we all know, as impressive as it is, your pivot door is going to present challenges if it is a pivot hinge door over 7 ft. tall. There are factors facing architects and designers who desire to incorporate such a feature into a breathtaking structure.

Here are some of the challenges facing designers of your architectural pivot door:

Problem: Large Pivot Doors

The bigger the pivot door, the more challenges face designers, builders, and installers of large pivot doors. The size of your pivot door creates a challenge in the mere handling of the door. If your architectural pivot door is significantly large (of course, the larger it is, the more impressive it is) the size of it makes it difficult to transport between various stages of the pivot door build, from base manufacture, to millwork, to job site and installation. Each of these phases requires handling of the door, which can take many people and may include the use of heavy equipment for maneuvering the large pivot door.

Solution: Large Pivot Doors

Sing Core teams up with only the best millworks, custom door manufacturers and pivot door companies to provide the best Eco-friendly warp-free pivot door systems in the world, and each custom pivot door is proudly made in the USA. Even if your pivot door system requires a very large pivoting door, such as 40 ft. tall, Sing Core has the solution for any pivot door sizes.

Problem: Heavy Pivot Doors

Big pivot doors means you’re dealing with a big pivot door slab of material which is extremely heavy in weight. These heavy pivot doors are tough to handle by hand, requiring heavy equipment to move them around through the various stages of creation and throughout the installation process.

Solution: Lightweight Pivot Doors

Pivot Doors with Sing Core inside weigh a fraction the weight of other solid core pivoting doors. Significantly lighter weight pivot doors, even metal pivot doors, translates to huge cost savings in terms of manufacturing, transportation and long term maintenance costs over time. The warp-free nature of guaranteed professional Sing pivot doors greatly reduces pivot door maintenance costs, making your pivot doors systems more cost-efficient and sustainable.

Problem: Heavy Duty Pivot Door Hardware

Also note the weight of the large pivot door determines the pivot door hardware that will be utilized in the pivot door systems. Heavy pivot door means heavy duty pivot door hardware. The heavier the door, the more expensive the heavy duty pivot door hardware, which can come with an enormous price tag that can exceed the cost of the pivot door itself. In heavy pivot door systems, the hardware can easily be the most expensive portion of the entire system.

Solution: Eliminate Heavy Duty Pivot Door Hardware

Since the weight of your large pivot door determines the gauge of the pivot door hardware incorporated in pivot doors systems, reducing the weight significantly results in being able to utilize low cost hardware, greatly reducing the overall cost of the pivot door system, thanks to having Sing Core inside your pivot door(s).

Problem: Heavy Pivot Door Maintenance

Large pivot doors do impose heavy maintenance costs over time if they are used very much, due to stress of the heavy pivot door on the hardware, structure and further compromising the pivot door seal because of the pivot door material’s tendency to move. This translates to regular maintenance being required to maintain, repair or replace the supporting structure, frame, hardware and pivot door as necessary to achieve adequate performance expectations.

Solution: Little or No Pivot Door Maintenance

By having your custom pivot doors built with Sing Core inside, you can have nearly maintenance-free enjoyment of your exterior pivot door for 50 years. Of course, you will still need normal routine maintenance of the door’s finish, but you can rest assured that you can avoid having the service life of your pivot door interrupted by experiencing undue stress to hardware, structure or suffering the disappointment of a warping pivot door.

Problem: Warping Pivot Doors

Exterior pivot doors are more problematic than interior doors for their tendency to warp by having to separate two different spaces which could (and more often than not do) have quite different environments on either side of the door. This is the main cause of warping pivot doors, which can compromise the seal of the exterior pivot door and add stress to the existing structure and hardware.

Solution: Warp-free Pivot Doors

Sing Core provides the only known solution for warp-free pivot doors of any size. The warp-free true flat engineers and technicians at Sing Core help to design and build your custom door in concert with architectural specification to produce a professional large pivot door which can be guaranteed to offer non-warping performance for 50 years. No other Eco-friendly, lightweight, high strength door can have such a guarantee, unless it has patented Sing Core inside.

Problem: Replacement Pivot Doors

Replacement pivot doors, either at the outset (in the design phase) or as the pivot door begin to fail, is the unfortunate story that faces many exterior pivot door owners and/or users and purveyors of various pivot doors systems. Some care is taken in the replacement of pivot doors to find a pivot door solution which is less likely to fail, or provide some degree of reduction in ongoing pivot door maintenance.

Solution: Replacement Pivot Doors

The answer is not found in any millwork, pivot door company, or pivot door hardware company. The answer to the problems and challenges is found inside the door. Doors made with “Sing Core inside,” are lightweight, high strength, high precision, and can be guaranteed to warp, bend, twist or otherwise fail for 50 years.

Pivot door systems featuring pivot entry doors with Sing Core inside are the number one replacement pivot doors, especially in large pivot front door applications.

Metal pivot doors are our specialty, especially large oversized pivot doors, that are Eco-friendly, lightweight, and stronger than steel pound for pound.

Large high end pivot entry doors are subject to varying environments on either side of the door, which creates movement of the high end pivot doors according to exposure of one side to the elements and the interior of the structure on the location’s interior space. This can compromise the oversized pivot door system seasonally, requiring regular maintenance and repair over time.

The Sing solution for aluminium pivot doors is to incorporate patented Sing core insulation-packed vertical grain torsion box grid technology to provide an aluminum pivot door that can withstand the changes in exposure on either side of the door to prevent compromise. This is how your professional aluminium pivot door can be guaranteed to remain warp-free for 50 years. (You will receive written guarantee with your professional aluminum pivot door.)
