You asked for it, and Sing Core delivers, and as always, goes the extra mile.
For years, Sing Core has been providing the most exclusive solutions for large high-end door manufacturing, made available to only the best custom door manufacturers and millworks. Since we started supporting the door industry rarely does a day go by when we aren’t dealing with many requests for standard-sized doors for retail installations.
Unfortunately, since our factory is only set up for one-off custom large doors, the cost of making a standard-sized door with Sing Core inside is just too cost prohibitive, except in the most high-end jobs with a large budget for architectural doors. That is, until now.
Introducing Retail-ready 3-0 x 7-0 Sing Doors
Financed by our success of building high precision Eco-friendly one-of-a-kind warp-free doors that can be guaranteed not to warp, bend, twist or otherwise fail for 50 years (no other door company in the world can do that without having Sing Core inside), we have created a new division at our factory to build standard-sized 3-0 x 7-0 doors with Sing Core inside.
These warp-free flush doors are priced to sell, so that you can now provide the best doors to your retail clientele featuring Sing Core inside at a price point that is attractive and affordable.
Priced for Retail Kick-off Event
We are kicking off this new line of retail-ready doors in the most requested size: 3-0 x 7-0 doors, available for either interior or exterior applications. You also get to choose from paint grade, veneer, or natural wood stave Sing flush doors starting at $xx.xx each, with no minimum order.
Standard lite cut outs are available (8 styles to choose from). Doors with window openings cut require a 10 piece per cut out design minimum order.
Strongest Lightest Weight Doors in the World
Kick My Door
As we kick off this event, inventor Peter Sing invites you to kick his door, which is so strong, “You will break your leg before you crash my core.”
Sing Core is renowned world-wide as the only way to build a lightweight door using high precision (+/- .006 in. tolerance) core material which is stronger than steel pound for pound (660 PSI) for building doors that can be guaranteed not to warp or fail.
Note: Kick doors with Sing Core inside at your own risk.
Ready to Ship Unfinished Doors to You
As always, Sing Core does not finish, provide hardware, or pre-hang doors. Prices are for unfinished door slabs only.
To sweeten the deal even more, we will ship to your company direct. Sing custom doors are only shipped to millworks and custom door manufacturers only, because finishing and creating the ultimate warp-free door depends highly on the craftsmen who create the finished product.
Since these are standard 3-0 x 7-0 sized doors, there is plenty of hardware and retail-ready framing material available over-the-counter, so these doors do not require the same attention to details as our custom-sized doors. The only thing is, we need to trust your skills in finishing the door.
5-year Warp-free Guarantee
Assuming the door is adequately sealed and finished, Sing Core guarantees every one of these doors, both interior and exterior doors, to remain warp-free for 5 years, including full structure warranty.
Now you can order with confidence and at special retail-ready pricing your choice of 3-0 x 7-0 doors with Sing Core inside.
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.

Each slatwall panel features slatwall on both sides of the panel without compromising Sing Panel strength, yielding twice the display space. Standard 6-inch slatwall slots accommodate all standard slatwall hardware and display components.
One of the great features of these slatwall panels is the lack of monkey business. There are no special gizmos or connections for complex assembly or disassembly. There is nothing here but the 4×8 slatwall panels which lock together with cam-lock technology. The only tool needed is an Allen wrench to construct your Sing slatwall system. See the video:
Sing slatwall panels weigh a fraction of the weight of other slatwall panels, are Eco-friendly, high strength, and guaranteed not to warp, bend, twist, or structurally fail for 10 years, even with regular (repeated) use over time.

Though Sing Core Doors are available in nearly any wood species, our standard varieties include:
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)
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.
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.
When you spend $10,000 to $100,000 on a door and it warps, can you fix it? No.
It may be a beautifully and skillfully handmade door, but if it is warped, it fails to function as a door to any level of satisfaction.
These expensive doors are made with solid materials or core substrate material which is the weakest link. The core of the door determines the weight, strength, and long term performance of the door. Only doors with patented and patent-pending Sing Core technology inside can be guaranteed not to warp or fail regardless of size, exterior surface material used, or style of door for 50 years.
“We’ve switched from using LVL door core to Sing Core and no longer have to worry about warped doors.”
While LVL and wood-based door cores are fine for standard sized doors, these are not practical for large doors because they increase the weight of the door significantly making it more apt to fail, expensive to handle, maintain, and even potentially dangerous.
This is why the top door companies, millworks, and custom door manufacturers rely on Sing Core delivering the best door substrate enabling them to warranty wooden and large doors.
Would you settle for a 1-year warranty?
Most doors come with the standard 1 year warranty (large doors may only carry a 30-day warranty, or more commonly, are exempt from any warranty at all) because, as is well known and they say in the industry,
Sing door blanks are the best foundation for building the best doors. The Sing American French Door is revolutionizing the American modern door industry. Using Sing door blanks adds unparalleled core value to your doors; with it any size of door can be built that will not warp, bend or twist.
The technology that enables door manufacturers to build Eco-friendly lightweight high-strength doors was invented and is 100% made in the USA.
True Flat and Guaranteed not to warp for 50 Years!
With our professional doors, we can guarantee they will not warp, bend, twist, or otherwise fail for 50 years, including full structure warranty.
Sing Core has been offering this 50-year guarantee to high-end door makers for years.

SingCore Panel Watertight Church Door
How can I get the best door in the world?
You can specify that your door be manufactured with SingCore Inside by any of door company, millwork, or custom door maker.
If you are designing your own high-end door you can have it custom manufactured by your local millwork being sure to tell them that you desire, “SingCore inside.”
You can sleep better at night knowing that you’re working with a revolutionary Eco-friendly building material that helps to make the world a better place for all Earth’s creatures.
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.
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
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
A 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
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.
