Standard 3-0 x 7-0 Door Specs

General Specifications

Standard Sing Core 3 0 7 0 doors are manufactured with patented Sing Core material as the base interior substrate of the door. The Sing Core substrate material is created using a vertical grain natural wood torsion box design while the traditionally empty voids are filled wall to wall with recycled foam. The standard foam material is recycled rigid EPS foam. A 10-inch natural wood lock block is positioned centered at 37 inches for door knob and locking mechanism placement on both sides of the door. The core material is wood framed by 2-inch natural wood for finishing strength and attaching hardware. The torsion box is completed by adhering an exterior surface material (skin) in your choice of paint grade (Birch ply), wood veneer(s), or natural wood stave. Bonding agent used in adhesion of the entire composite material is formaldehyde-free.

Standard Sing Core 3 0 7 0 Doors include frame perfectly suited for the door of your choice and ready to hang. Specify either 2×4 or 2×6 wall thickness to determine frame size for door installation (not supplied by Sing Core).

Every Sing Core manufactured door is finished to specifications and guaranteed for 5 years for structural integrity.

Door Finishes

There are many ways to build large doors with Sing Core inside, the only doors that can be,

Guaranteed Warp-free for 50 Years


When it comes to oversize doors, one door stands out above the rest for high-end applications; see comparison. Look for these features in your door for the most discriminating taste(s):

  • Available in any size (up to 16 ft.)
  • Lightweight
  • Strong (stronger than steel pound for pound)
  • Insulated
  • Sound-deadening
  • Guaranteed True Flat
  • Resistant to warp, twist, crack & rot
  • Standard 10-year warranty
  • Professional 50-year warp-free guarantee

For more detailed information on our doors, see our Architectural Specifications.

Though Sing Core Doors are available in nearly any wood species, our standard varieties include:

sing-maple sing-cherry sing-oak sing-vg-fir sing-walnut
MAPLE CHERRY OAK VG FIR WALNUT

Note: Door designs can be modified to meet your specifications and requirements an may include the application and bonding of any flat building material. Please feel free to inquire for more information.

1. Paint Grade Door

2. Wood Grain and Wood Stave Door

3. Hardwood Plywood Door

1 Paint Grade Door

Our most popular door blanks are paint grade, and can be made to your specs including surface materials of,

  • Birch ply (most common)
  • Wood plywood
  • MDO
  • HPL
  • Other material, as specified

 

2 Wood Grain and Wood Stave Door

Besides paint grade for the surface, we also provide solid wood stave laminate on both sides of the sliding door. Wood stave is easy to work with and will last. Your Sing wood stave door will be more high precision than solid wood door (less warping, and twist and crack) due to Sing Core’s extremely high tolerance (+/- .006 inch) and, rigidity and high strength (660+ PSI) and professional grade wood grain and wood stave doors are certified and guaranteed not to warp, bend, twist, or otherwise fail for 50 years.

Sing Core provides hot-press ready door blanks to door manufacturers who add wood veneer on both sides of Sing door blanks which are made of Luan skin or marine grade plywood sandwich with patented Sing Core in the middle, solid wood around 4 edges and wood block implants where needed for hardware.

oversize-panel-edge-glued-together-planks-5ftx10ft Sing-Hardwood-Panels-Variety

Note: Veneer has to be handled very carefully every step of the way during production (we prefer to let the millworks handle this delicate procedure) and it is easy to damage by users over the years (but wood stave can be easily sanded and repaired).

We offer a very good price for wood stave doors, the cost is not much more than wood veneer doors.

3 Hardwood Plywood Door

We could make door with hardwood plywood as an effective way to make super large doors that you can stain any color. Up to 4×8 doors have no seam, but by orienting the grain horizontally, you can achieve a nearly seamless presentation on really big doors or extraordinary size.

Available in any available wood species, most common are Sapele, Oak, and Maple ply.

Sing Hardwood ply door has excellent strength, yet is lightweight, features good insulation and better sound deadening qualities than solid wood plank doors.

Sing Panels with Plumbing and Wire Chase

sing-panel-horizontal-embedded-cable-chase-wire-chase-plumbing-chaseCustom Sing Panels can be manufactured to your architectural specifications which may include special chases for plumbers to route hot and cold water feeds via plumbing or electricians to run electrical wiring, communications and security through a patented Sing panel.

Surface mount conduit and exterior chases can be added to Sing panels as they are, though many users of our patented insulation reinforced torsion box core prefer to use embedded wiring chase of for water supply pre-installed plumbing chase.

Embedded Chases

Embedded chases can be placed at specified locations prior to manufacturing your Sing panel to meet the specific requirement of the job at hand, accommodating communications center needs or the special needs of inplant offices, clean rooms, temporary warehousing, watch towers, guard shacks, portable classrooms, spa expansions, home theaters or any application where running utilities, like electricity, wiring and/or cables or plumbing inside and through your Sing panel may be advantageous.

Common horizontal chases are specified at 16 inches and 45 inches from the base, while the most common location for a vertical chase is in the center of the Sing panel. Regardless, every Sing panel is custom manufactured in our factory, and we can have your wire chase or plumbing pre-installed within your panels at any location specified.

How to Specify Wire Chase Locations

sing-panel-embedded-cable-chase-wire-chase-plumbing-chaseIt is easy to have your embedded chases pre-installed at the proper locations. All you have to do is to be certain to disclose the precise locations and sizes of your wire chase (plumbing chase or cable chase). We will provide you with an architectural drawing of your panel before your custom Sing panel is built for you to confirm the chase’s location.

No Loss of R Value

To preserve the R-value of your Sing panel it is advisable to have the cable chase filled with spray foam insulation after pulling the wires or routing the plumbing through the embedded channels. Likewise, if a channel is not used, it should also be filled with foam insulation prior to final assembly, unless insulation properties are not necessary for your application.

Panel Chase Options

Although many options abound for electricians and plumbers to install access to services, another popular method includes running cable, wire and plumbing through panel connectors that run the length of your standard Sing panels, or alternatively running services through the floor.

Many creative options are available for adding access to water, electricity and communications without having the necessity of pre-installed chases being embedded in your Sing panels.

Economy Chase Options

An emerging value-minded approach to inexpensive reinforced structural insulated panels is to obtain two economy 1.5 inch Sing Panels from your local Lowe’s Pro Desk. Prior to gluing them together to make a single 3 inch panel, simply router out where you want your chase channel to be, then adhere the two panels together. This is an inexpensive option discovered by price conscious tiny house builders.
