Top 7 Pocket Door Problems and Solutions

The pocket door has been one of the more interesting types of doors that is not only functional but clever in its ability be secluded out of sight, like a hidden door or room divider. Pocket doors are doors that slide into the wall. Also referred to as a cavity sliding door, a sliding cavity door is just like what it’s called, as the door is hidden inside a cavity inside the wall when in its opened position.

As the best architects, millworks and door manufacturers realize that while these types of doors are an effective and brilliant combination of brilliance and creativity, the pocket door does present a few problems associated with their use. That’s why you want to use the best pocket door system.

The Top 7 Problems with Pocket Doors Solved

1. Pocket Doors Warp – Problem

Let’s admit it; the number one problem associated with pocket doors is door warping. A warped sliding pocket door is a huge problem because there is usually a nominal amount of space on either side of the door when the door is snuggled inside the sliding door cavity. A little warp will damage the finish of the door, while a more severely warped pocket door will cause the door to get lodged within the wall, making it difficult to pull out without causing other complications or damage.

1. Pocket Doors Warp – Solution

Sing Core provides the best pocket door manufactures with the only lightweight warp-free pocket door core which is based on a combination of patented reinforced insulated vertical grain torsion box core and composite anti-warp stiffening inserts (patent pending) to provide the only warp-free solution regardless of building materials used (even solid wood stave).

2. Pocket Door Weight – Problem

As a rule pocket doors are pretty heavy, and they’re made to be heavier, because unless you know better, you think that the thicker the door is the less it will tend to move, which is the bane of all wood pocket doors. In the case of pocket doors, adding weight is not the answer, unless you’re in the pocket door maintenance and repair niche.

2. Pocket Door Weight – Solution

The Sing Core lightweight pocket door solution revolves around the lightest weight Eco-friendly pivot door core weighing-in at a fraction of the weight of other wood-based solid wood core. Superior lightweight performance without compromising strength, precision or performance.

3. Pocket Door Repair – Problem

When you have problems with your pocket door it’s going to be a costly issue when dealing with pocket door repair. Why? Unlike other fixed doors which are exposed your pocket sliding door is generally not seen in its opened position, making access to the door unlikely without having to remove the wall supplying the door’s cavity.
If you have to pay for pocket door repair, keep in mind, it may be costly and it will cost you many times the cost of your door over time, especially if it is a wooden door because it will be even more susceptible to warp. While repairing a door can be costly, it might save you money by considering pocket door replacement every so often.

3. Pocket Door Repair – Solution

Sing Core is unprecedented in its reparability. For instance, you could skewer your pocket completely through with fork lift forks and repair it on site by cutting out the damaged area with a chainsaw, glue in a new piece of Sing Core, putty, sand and finish the pocket door and it’s just like new. No compromising the strength or integrity of the original Sing Core pocket door, without even dismantling the door.

4. Pocket Door Hardware – Problem

Pocket door maintenance will include maintaining the hardware, and if your door is a heavy one. The more you use it, the more maintenance will be necessary over time. Plus heavy pocket doors can also compromise the pocket door frame as well as the structure due to stress and strain of operating your door over time. Heavy pocket doors require expensive heavy duty hardware for heavy doors because the pocket door hardware is based on the pocket door’s weight.

4. Pocket Door Hardware – Solution

Since the Sing Core composite pocket door core solution is so lightweight, you can save so much money on being able to use lightweight pocket door hardware (since pocket door hardware is based on weight), not to mention the savings in transporting, handling, manpower and equipment necessary to install the completed pocket door system.

5. Pocket Door Precision – Problem

The problem with pocket doors is that it is difficult to make them with any degree of precision, due to the limitation of the building materials and manufacturing process. Natural wood moves, so it could be straight and true upon installation, but not long after. If welding is used in the manufacturing process, this may also cost you your pocket door’s precision. A single pocket door may not require high precision if it is the only door in the cavity, but what if there are other doors sharing the same space, precision is of primary importance.

5. Pocket Door Precision – Solution

No other Eco-friendly, lightweight high-strength pocket door core can compare to Sing Core in terms of high precision. With the highest tolerances (+/- .006 in.) patented Sing Core can be sanded, milled or machined so precisely, that’s why you see Sing Core everywhere from beneath the ocean (U.S. Navy) to outer space (NASA) and everywhere in between when high precision and dimensional stability are the most important factors.

6. Double Pocket Door – Problem

The highest precision is necessary to accommodate more than one pocket door in the wall’s cavity which is an invitation for constant maintenance, as multiple pocket doors (2 or more) are rubbing up against themselves due to lack of precision or warp gone wild.

6. Double Pocket Door – Solution

Sharing the same pocket door cavity with not just double pocket doors, but multiple doors, is no problem for patented Sing Core. No pocket door core material is as lightweight, Eco-friendly or high precision. You can stack many doors side by side inside your wall cavity packed very tightly with very little wiggle room, and you, your architect, millwork or pocket door manufacturer won’t have to worry about your doors staying straight and true.

7. Large Pocket Doors – Problem

The bigger the pocket door, the bigger the problems. Large pocket doors are the most problematic because they are big, they are heavy, and if they’re over 7 ft. tall and/or 3.5 ft. wide they will be heavier, meaning more expensive hardware that could be many times the cost of the door, increased maintenance due to even more stress on the pocket door frame as well as the structure. What about the warping? Large pocket doors are just asking for trouble, because building one out of standard building materials is a little better than building it out of fresh spaghetti.

7. Large Pocket Doors – Solution

The bigger they are the brighter Sing Core shines through. You can build a 34 ft. tall large pocket door that weighs about 10 percent of its solid predecessor and will not warp, bend, twist of otherwise fail. Your large pocket door can be made of any flat building material in any size and can be guaranteed for 10 full years of faithful service. That’s why the biggest door manufacturers in the world use nothing but Sing Core in their large oversized doors.

Pivot Doors Straight Talk

Years in the making, finally Sing Core has come out with the ultimate solution for Eco-friendly pivot doors made of any material and any size weighing a fraction of other door cores. This revolutionary patented solution has made Sing Core the number one resource for large pivot doors that are lightweight, high strength and can be guaranteed to remain warp-free for 50 years, as well as full structure warranty. No other large pivot door solution can match the power of Sing Core. Here’s the latest straight talk about pivot doors:

Pivot Doors Straight Talk

As the demand for large pivot doors is on the increase, the bigger they are, the more impressive they are, also, the more apt they are to fail due to door warp. Let’s face it, a door that is not straight and true is of little use as a door at all.

It is imperative for large pivot doors to remain straight and true, and the design team at Sing Core has created a full battery of patented and patent pending solutions to keep any large pivot door, made of any material perfectly straight, far exceeding AWI standards for flatness. The true flat experts at Sing Core have the knowledge and ability to create large pivot doors will not warp, eliminating the biggest complaint about pivot doors.

So, if you want a straight pivot door, the only way to get one made and guaranteed to remain warp-free for 50 years is to do what most contemporary architects, designers and engineers do, and that’s to specify that you want your doors to have, “Sing Core inside.”

Pivot Door Problems

Large pivot doors with Sing Core inside also solve other problems facing architects and designers, including, but not limited to…

Heavy Pivot Doors

Large pivot doors are big and heavy in weight. The large size and the heavy weight is problematic for a number of reasons. First of all, you must find a custom door manufacturer or millwork to take on such a project in the first place. Anything that is large is going to be difficult to create and manipulate through the building process just to create the mammoth door in the first place. Then you have to be able to move the door from the factory to the truck, using a combination of manpower and heavy equipment. Then transport the large pivot door from the factory to the job site. Once at the site, more manpower and heavy equipment is required to unload and move the door to where it will be installed. Installers now have to deal with the door, moving and fine tuning it to fit the space and attach the appropriate heavy duty pivot door hardware which can cost many times the price of the pivot door.

Heavy Duty Pivot Door Hardware

Expensive heavy duty pivot door hardware is required as the hardware is determined by the weight of the door. Even though this hardware is designed to handle a heavy weight pivot door, the straight talk is, if the door is used regularly, the hardware will start to breakdown and fail over time.

Large Pivot Door Maintenance

Which brings us to maintenance on the large pivot doors; yes, your large pivot door is impressive and leaves a great first impression but the more consistent lasting impression is left upon the pivot door’s owner who must bear the cost of constant repair and maintenance over the life of the otherwise magnificent large pivot door. As huge pivot doors are used, they cause stress and strain, not only on the hardware, but also the structure, creating the need for maintenance and repair on the pivot door for warp, the hardware as it deteriorates, and the structure for stress and strain.

Large Pivot Door Insulation

In most large pivot doors, little thought is given to the insulation value of the door. While large pivot doors are commonly thicker than their hinged cousins, the large pivot doors may not provide for energy efficient handling of thermal separation or elimination of sound penetration.

Large Pivot Door Danger

If you have a large pivot door, operating it may be problematic, especially when delicate little fingers are around when the pivot door is opened and closed. Large pivot doors are so heavy that there is the danger of injury to anyone, not just children, when the doors are in motion.

Pivot Door Solutions

Thanks you Sing Core, you can save money and have a better large pivot door experience over time, as the Sing solution is applied. Here are some of the solutions you can expect by specifying that your pivot door has, “Sing Core inside.”

Lightweight Pivot Doors

If your pivot door is built with Sing Core inside, it can weigh a fraction of the weight of any other solid core pivot door. The energy savings in just the creation and transport of your Sing pivot door help to make it more ecologically responsible, using less energy to create, ship and handle. But there’s more…

Lightweight Pivot Door Hardware

Because the type of pivot door hardware is based on the pivot door’s weight, a lighter weight door requires a pivot hinge which is matched. Real cost savings can be realized by being able to use the less expensive pivot door hardware, bring the cost of the hardware way down.

High Strength Pivot Doors

Your Sing pivot door is very strong as it was university-tested and rated at 660 PSI in strength, making it stronger than steel pound for pound. This superior strength is due to the patented insulated reinforced vertical grain torsion box core. Without Sing Core inside , you are limited to the ability of the material used to maintain the pivot door integrity over time.

Sing Pivot Door Maintenance

When your pivot doors have sing Core inside they are also nearly free of regular maintenance. If you have a professional Sing pivot door that does not warp, then you possess a large pivot door which can be guaranteed not to warp, bend, twist, cup, or otherwise fail for 50 years. Plus, if the door is damaged for any reason, it can be quickly and easily repaired on site (often without have to dismantle or remove the door) without compromising the pivot door’s strength or integrity. In addition, the lightweight of your Sing pivot door, means much less stress and strain on the hardware.

Sing Pivot Door Installation

Being so lightweight reduces costs and time by being so lightweight. Due to the bulky size several people will need to manipulate the door, but no heavy equipment will be needed because the crew can easily maneuver the large pivot door without much trouble. In fact, we commonly hear back from the installers about how they couldn’t believe how light and easy to work with large pivot doors with Sing Core inside are.

Insulated Pivot Door

Sing Core pre-packs your large pivot door with insulation wall to wall inside the torsion box structure imbuing your large pivot with increased ability for climate control and also sound deadening capabilities that are hard to find in other large pivot doors. If you’re thinking about separation between room, or particularly a pivot front door, the added insulation factor is of huge benefit and included in every Sing pivot door blank at no extra charge. Insulation upgrades are available per your specification.

Sing Pivot Door Safety and Security

Due to the increased insulation and high strength of your pivot door that has Sing Core inside, you can enjoy a greater sense of safety and security. The high strength will prevent breaching the door from unwanted guests. These are often used as impact doors. If you kick other lightweight pivot doors, they could easily fail and offer egress to an otherwise secure environment, but if you kick a Sing pivot door you will not break the door. You are more likely to break your leg and the sound deadening characteristics inhibits eavesdropping.

In the event a child, or anyone, gets their hand or fingers caught in a Sing large pivot door in motion, the likelihood of surviving such an event is much more likely as less damage will occur thanks to the Sing solution being so much lighter in weight than other large pivot doors.

Shouldn’t your pivot doors have Sing Core inside?

Flat Pack

Sing Core started the flat pack home revolution where entire homes were built of flat pack Sing Core products, including the foundation, floors, walls, doors, ceilings, roofs and all the interior furnishings. It’s no surprise that Sing Core would be the revolutionary patented building material to redefine the flat pack collapsible furniture industry.

Why? It’s all about the characteristics intrinsic in the nature of Eco-friendly Sing Core, attributes like:

Lightweight ~ High strength ~ Insulated ~ Reuseable

What’s the problem?

While Ikea first introduced their idea of collapsible and flat packed furniture in the 1950s, Ikea has certainly created a market that they alone dominated. Only thing is, what do you think the biggest complaint is about Ikea’s collapsible furniture? You know it’s that it does not last. And what should you expect? They keep the prices so low, that you can’t possibly think of Ikea furniture as being anything but disposable (10% of all dollars spent on furniture ends up in Ikea pockets).

When Ikea furniture breaks down no one complains, they just send the pieces off to the landfill, while they spend a few dollars to replace the broken down garbage, and no one bats an eye, except for the socially conscious individual who sees there is no sense of sustainability, when disposable Ikea furniture is posing almost as much negative eco energy as the plastic water bottle. Where is the social responsibility?

What’s the answer?

Sing Core proposes creating the same type of collapsible furniture with modular components that can be redesigned and repurposed on the fly, where all parts are interchangeable and may interconnect and the pieces are nearly indestructible, designed to last forever.

That’s a tall order… but is it possible?

The lightweight and stronger-than-steel characteristics of patented Sing Core make it to perfect material to build modular, collapsible furniture, which can be flat packed for transport or storage, using far less energy to create, ship, assemble, disassemble and maintain with unparalleled longevity. In fact, professional Sing Core is designed to last virtually forever and comes backed with an unprecedented 50 year warp-free, fail-free guarantee.

Even though it is a more expensive hand-made process that is the basis of Sing Core’s reinforced insulated torsion box composite material, the result is far superior to any known lightweight building material.

Nothing Compares

No lightweight building material available (even aerospace core materials) is stronger and impact resistant for improved longevity. If a Sing Core furniture component is damaged, it does not need to be replaced; it can be repaired and may not even need to be disassembled to be repaired.

Open the Door to Flat Pack

This is how Sing Core dominated the large door industry. Large doors could now be made lightweight, super strong and able to last for years, without warping or failing structurally. This was unheard of in the large door business, as all door manufacturers know, “All large door will warp and fail.” So, they are not covered by any warranty, this is, unless they have, “Sing Core inside,” enabling them to be fully guaranteed for 50 years.

Collapsible, flat pack Sing furniture is the socially and ecologically sensible and sustainable answer to the disposable furniture purveyors burying our cities in waste.

The Sing modular furniture components are interchangeable and reusable. In fact, there are negotiations going on with the inventor proposing free standing big box stores warehousing the various components. In this scenario, the customer comes into the store, identifies an assembled piece of furniture, the store associate goes to the warehouse, pulls the components from a parts-list and packages them into a flat pack for the customer.

No modular furniture design is so simple and convenient with long lasting results of sustainability and functionality. Is your family expanding, no problem, you can buy the components to expand your double-bed into a king sized bed, your crib into a twin-size bed, your coffee table into a dining room table, your end tables into a sofa, your end tables into a kitchen island, the possibilities are endless.

To be able to go to the Sing Big Box Store and go home with an entire bedroom set in the back seat of your car is a dream come true, and you can’t believe the number of college students already beginning to line up for the single-purchase dorm furniture that will knock down and follow them home, into their offices or dens as they launch their careers. It’s all happening.

Having a wedding or event in your back yard? No problem, you have all the folding table and chairs you could possibly need flat packed and stored in the back of your closet or wardrobe. Any of these components can be easily assembled without expensive tools or carpentry skills, and quickly disassembled in as little time, and flat packed again for easy storage.

How did all this easy to assemble, knock down, transport and store technology come about?

Not long ago, the trade show industry took a great interest in the Sing Core building material. Trade shows are inherently wasteful, in that trade show displays and booths are constructed, demolished and disposed of, wasting millions of dollars at each show. Due to the long life and structural integrity of the patented Sign Core material, trade show vendors were now able to use and reuse the individual modular trade show display components over and over again.

What’s more, is that due to the modular nature of the design elements of the individual trade show components, if your business expanded your trade show system could now expand with you. Before Sing Core, if your business grew from a 10 x 20 trade show booth to a 10 x 70 trade show display, it meant getting a whole new outfit, when with Sing Core trade show components, all you need to do is add the components necessary to accommodate your new design (and be able to assemble it in minutes).

You can see how this translates well to the modular collapsible flat pack furniture division of Sing Core.

Lease or Rent to Own

Apartment managers are thrilled of the idea of storing the furnishings for a hundred units in one storage room, then assembling what they need on-the-fly, making the option of providing a fully furnished apartment, instead of an unfurnished apartment a snap, adding the furnishings to the monthly revenue stream.

Simplified Design for High Speed Assembly

Putting together modular Sing Furniture is as easy as connecting Legos. Unlike other flat pack systems that come with a variety of parts and connectors, modular Sing furniture components are designed to lock in and easily assemble, not unlike the trade show system Sing Core is so renowned for.

Instead of an average 2-hour assembly time, your Sing modular components can be connected in minutes, without special tools or equipment, like this collapsible dresser.

High End Flat Pack Furniture

Stop thinking that collapsible flat pack furniture means disposable. You can have all the advantages and chic elegance that comes from having a high quality piece of furniture that can easily be disassembled and/or repurposed, stored and/or transported.

This is not disposable furniture, as you may have thought of before; this new evolution of collapsible flat pack furniture is spearheading a revolutionary concept in sustainable modular furniture for generations to come. In fact, you will find Sing Core in some of the most high end, multi-million-dollar homes (like this 48 million dollar home) and mansions. If it’s good enough for the elite, you will be proud to have this very same material in your own abode.

This new concept of simple, yet elegant, highly functional, expandable and adaptable new line of modular furniture is redefining the flat pack definition.

Whether you’re a high functioning apartment dweller, a space conscious home owner or a college student on-the-run, Sing modular collapsible flat pack furniture is empowering you to propel your space conscious sustainable future.

Superior Flat Pack Strength

No to be confused with flimsy flat pack furniture of yesteryear, this new material is extremely strong in comparison. For instance an Ikea component may have compression strength of 10 PSI, whereas Sing Core clocks in at an impressive 660 PSI, stronger than steel pound for pound.

Now you can have all the convenience of knock down component furniture without the risk of being disposable or failing over time. It won’t matter whether your packing up your folding table, folding chairs, flat pack furniture, space saving beds or any other space saving furniture, Sing Core has you covered.

You Can Have It All in One Flat Pack

Whether it’s your home, or any or all of its furnishings, you can have it all flat packed thanks to Sing Core.
