WINDOW AND DOOR CUTOFFS

Sing Core provides Sing panels with window and door pre-cut and ready for installation. We will cut 1/8 larger in width and 3/16 inch wider in length to fit your window glass. We build a frame using 1.25 inch solid wood to your specifications.

MOLDING/TRIM

Sing Core windows and doors are profile ready for CNC routing. You may add molding or trim to create your own window or door design, otherwise we will provide you with thicker skin – such as 1/4 inch or thicker mdf, hardboard, etc. – for you to carve or profile by CNC machine. With Sing Core windows and doors you can create a true raised-panel door or any design you desire.

TRIMMED OR UNTRIMMED (RAW EDGES)

The standard ready-to-ship panel condition is, “untrimmed.” This leaves unfinished exterior edges that may have exposed adhesive and might require being built ½ inch over-sized for trimming at your location. An additional fee will be assessed for trimming and sizing in our factory.

All trimmed edges are 1/2 inch over width and 1/2 inch over length. After trimming, your Sing Panel will be 1/2 inch less (4 x 8 will be 47.5 inch x 95.5 inch). Standard solid wood edging with 1.5 inch will be reduced to 1.25 inch after trimming.

UNTRIMMED PANEL (RAW)

Many of our customers prefer their panels untrimmed because this allows them to trim their panels to exact size on site before installing them in their door openings.  That way they can have the peace of mind that their door will fit the opening exactly as intended.

TRIMMED PANEL

Customers who want their panels cut to exact size before they receive them should choose the trimmed selection.  This gives them the option of doing less work on site, but it also means they must be much more precise with their measurements before ordering their panels.  Trimmed also costs slightly more because it is more labor intensive to trim the panels in house.

Standard Doors

Standardized Doors

Are you searching for the best interior door to put in your home? Well search no more! Sing Core offers only the best doors to fit your budget. Sing Core’s patented door design reduces weight, increases insulation, increases sound deadening, and will not warp.

Traditionally manufactured interior doors weigh almost three times more than a Sing Core door. Sing Core produces hollow core doors that provide much greater insulation qualities. Usually hollow core doors have an insulation value, or R value, of 2. Sing Core interior doors boast an R value of 6. With this being said, you can save on your heating bill and save on the cost of replacing your old doors.

Sing Core offers the highest quality of over-sized doors, but also provides the absolute best standard interior doors. Standard doors sizes are available in 30”W x 80”H or 32”W x 80”H. Standard interior doors usually have a thickness of 1 ⅜”. If the door you are looking for is not one of the listed sizes then do not worry, you can contact our salesperson and we can create a custom door just for you.

Currently we are offering our standard interior doors with a fiberglass skin. Traditional standard sized interior doors usually have a medium density fiberboard (MDF) skin or are solid wood. Both of these materials are very heavy, increasing the cost of hardware needed to hold the door. Our standard doors can be used with hinging, pivoting, or sliding hardware.

The standard interior doors are being sold as unfinished door blanks so that you may finish the door as you please. If you are searching for a new interior door, then you have come to the right place. Sing Core doors are among the lightest on the market. Don’t think for a second that we compromised strength to achieve such a lightweight door. Sing Core doors are significantly stronger than doors comprised of traditional materials, not to mention modern hollow core doors.

Sing Core is the only company that guarantees every door to stay straight and not warp for 50 years! No other door company can make such a claim. Our standard sized doors can be used with a wide variety of hardware. You can hang the door with standard hinges, a pivot box, or even make it a sliding door. Sing Core’s lightweight design allows you to save on hardware costs. There is no need for any specialty hardware to support a heavy door.

You could even apply a proper exterior finish to the door for use as an exterior door. The possibilities are endless! Sing Core can customize any door you need, in anyway you may need. Our doors can have a wide variety of skins; including, but not limited to A/B Plywood, veneer, wood staves, steel, aluminum, fiberglass, HPL, MDF, and much much more.

What Is A Pivot Door?

A pivot door rotates on a pivot box in the floor and the top jamb rather than traditional door side hinges, which is common in most homes. Pivot Doors have become a popular choice for entrances, creating a bold statement at your first point of contact.

What makes pivot doors so unique? The pivot door or pivot window is an opening system with a central or lateral rotating axis that allows for very large door panels. The craftsmanship and technology of a pivot hinge allows for a larger opening than most other types of doors since traditional hinges cannot carry the same kind of weight. Pivot doors are fantastic options for where there is a large amount of space and enough floor room for the door to be able to swing all around.

Grounded in the principles of modern architecture, a pivot door emphasizes clean lines and simple shapes. Pivot doors are well suited for pivoting walls and can also be used as room dividers. Until now, affordable pivot doors are thicker than average doors and heavy in weight. The large size and heavy weight causes extra costs associated with shipping and handling. Shipping is more expensive because shipping costs are calculated on weight. Handling is more expensive because heavy equipment is necessary for transporting and manipulating the pivot door into place for installation. Pivot door hardware is also based on the affordable pivot door’s weight, so a heavier pivot door will require more expensive and heavy duty hardware. Here at Sing Core we manufacture custom premium wood pivot-hung entry doors for exterior and interior use. Our pivot doors feature our patented lightweight insulated torsion box pivot door core inside. Which imbues each door with the unique characteristics of a solid core pivot door featuring the exact size, material and appearance of any style of pivot door, while remaining extremely lightweight and incredibly strong. Independently University tested at 660 PSI, makes Sing Core’s pivot door core stronger than steel pound for pound. The pre-insulated core also means greater climate control and noise cancellation between spaces. Also, the lightweight of Sing Core’s pivot doors, means less shipping, handling, transportation and installation costs, requiring less expensive hardware.

A pivot, not a hinge rather than hanging from hinges in the frame, a pivot-hung door swings on a set of pins mounted in the top and bottom of the door. Transform the look of your home or office by opting for Sing Core’s affordable pivot doors. Pivoting front entry doors provide an elegant look and appear to float inside the door frame. We are offering premium wood pivot-hung entry doors for exterior and interior use that cannot be found anywhere else. Let Sing Core build your custom pivot doors, custom modern entry doors, exterior mahogany wood doors, or any other custom door you can imagine! If you can create the idea, we can create the door. Every Sing Core door comes with a 50 year structural guarantee, something that no other door company has been able to offer.

Horizontal Wood Staves

Give your home the humbling, yet astonishing ambiance of the Kekkai, the Kyoto code, by using horizontal wood staves.

What is Kekkai?

The Japanese principles of Kekkai are very simple. A Kekkai is a boundary comprised of a simple, often vague, line or sign indicating a place of no entry. In Japan, Kekkai can be anything, but commonly used objects for creating this boundary can be a piece of bamboo, pile of salt, a rock, a gate, or even mountains are considered Kekkai. The vagueness gives everyone an opportunity to interpret the exact meaning behind a Kekkai. Usually it is a boundary, but it can also be used to show respect. The use of Kekkai in this way indicates your position and how others should behave in the given area. They are used to convey a symbol of respect between all things, living or not. Kekkai embodies the “spirit of consideration” for those who use them and those who are aware of them.

Ninety percent of our customers who choose to have a wood stave skin on their door/panel prefer the horizontal wood stave instead of the vertical wood stave. Wood staves are a beneficial choice when choosing a skin for a door/panel. What are wood staves?  A stave is a narrow length of wood, in our case usually 6 in., that runs the span of the piece. They are aligned on the edges to leave no gaps. A stave traditionally forms the sides of barrels and is now a great material to use for your next DIY project. Stave lumber cores are assembled using blocks or strips of wood that are from the same species. Wood staves usually have a thickness of 0.125 in. while veneer is only 0.020 in. thick. Wood staves are 16% thicker than a standard veneer skin. This may seem small and insignificant but it makes the door/panel much easier to repair. The engineered construction of our interior doors utilizes fused, solid wood pieces that are laminated to create a solid wood stave face. Wood staves can be used on any door; including but not limited to: pivot doors, sliding doors, even standard hinge doors. Wood staves are offered in a wide array of species of wood, including mahogany, which is a beautiful species for a door. There are too many types of wood to list, but if you can think of it, then we can do it!  Our selections includes domestic and foreign hard wood lumber and softwood lumber. Our wood stave selection cannot be matched! Solid wood doors tend to warp, which is why most doors should use Sing Core. Solid wood doors tend to warp, so choose Sing Core for your non-warping needs. Sing Core carefully engineers doors to withstand the test of time. We create the strongest, lightest, and most eco friendly doors for a fraction of the cost you’ll see anywhere else. Our doors all come with a 50 year guarantee that they will remain this way. Think of Sing Core the next time you need a core for your door. At Sing Core we use only the highest quality wood for any commercial or residential applications you need.
