Stronger than Steel,
Lighter than Wood
Doors do not have to be made out of steel to be rigid and strong. Sing Core doors are stronger and lighter, than steel and vinyl doors. Standard steel overhead garage doors are made of steel so thin that a golf ball can dent it. This is not the case with Sing Core doors. We offer higher quality doors at prices competitive with steel doors with quality superior to wooden doors.
Sing Core doors are more stable, provide better insulation, and are far lighter than solid wood doors. The torsion-box core holds the Sing Core door flat, ensuring that that the panel will not warp and sag like ordinary wood.
Patented Sing Door Methods
Sing Core doors are versatile and customizable. Every order is custom designed with the client’s project in mind. Each door is constructed using methods that specifically cater to our customers’ individual needs. We construct our doors using the following methods: pole barn grade, paint grade, wood grain grade, and plank grade.
