Contractors

How Sing Core supports contractors to bring original architectural doors to life.

Door Blanks for High End Installations

Contractors and carpenters rightfully wary about buy and installing large or oversize wooden doors using traditional techniques. That’s why the top contractors in the country choose SingCore for challenging projects where they need to get things right the first time.

SingCore specializes in producing raw door panels which require finishing and hardware installation. . Our specialty is in door panels, not necessarily door finishing, which is why we prefer to work with millworks on expensive projects. And, we often refer our clients to local millworks when possible.

If you are carpenter or contractor without expertise in door finishing and milling, then we recommend you bring in a local millwork to assist you with completion of your luxury SingCore door panel.

Guaranteed Warp-free for 50 Years

With a guarantee longer than any other in the market, top jobs prefer to go with SingCore. Our no questions asked structural guarantee is perfect for cases when you can’t let anything go wrong, because this guarantee is the product of our certainty that our panels will stand the test of time where others will not.

Renowned for non-warping large doors, inventor Peter Sing’s patented and patent-pending building materials can do so much more. Patented SingCore is suitable for use in unsupported spans of almost any length with proper design support from our “True Flat” estimating team.

For example look at this 13′ span, easily supporting the weight of a man without deflection at only 1″ thick. Peter Sing’s miraculous material just boggles the mind, and is something that you have to get in your hands, or under your feet, to truly understand. You absolutely need to include SingCore in you next project.

How Strong is Sing’s Core?

Independently tested, Sing’s core is 660 PSI, many times stronger when compared to any other lightweight honeycomb-type building material which usually clocks in at between 10 and 110 PSI.

While lightweight and fully insulated, Sing Core is stronger that steel pound for pound.

Peter Sing says:

Kick my door and you will break your leg.

Any Size You Like

Sing core is not limited to specific standard door sizes. We offer full custom doors at any size from 3′ feet to 30′. There is almost no size too large or too small. And with our proprietary join on site door panel option, even the largest panels can easy to ship and easy to get in the building with limit on final size.

Any Finish on the Market

Surface lamination types include:

  • Veneer, any species
  • Wood stave, any species
  • Metal – cold rolled steel, hot rolled steel, aluminum, copper, other
  • HPL composites – Formica and Wilson Art

Architects

How Sing Core supports contemporary architecture and brings original architectural doors to life.

Why Specify Sing Core?

The primary reason top architectural firms specify Sing Core in their specs is for large doors because every door over three-and-a-half ft. wide or seven ft. tall is going to have a problem with warping, and Sing Core is the only way to build an Eco-friendly lightweight high strength fully insulated door which can be

Guaranteed Warp-free for 50 Years

This sets the bar extremely high, and when architects want to deliver the best for their particular high-end clientele, as specifying “Sing Core inside” elevates the project to an entirely new level.

Renowned for non-warping large doors, inventor Peter Sing’s patented and patent-pending building materials can do so much more. Next up on the list of reasons why architects seek Sing’s materials out for their upcoming projects includes lightweight dimensional stability and unsupported spans.

Here, Sing stands amidst a 13 ft. one-inch thick panel between two sawhorses, and you know if he were standing on any other building material, he would be standing on the ground. Yet, there he is suspended with little or no deflection. It boggles the mind, the possibilities of Sing’s core.

And Sing’s factory, located in the pristine forest region of the Pacific Northwest builds more than panels. He also builds posts and beams for use in other types of construction applications, which are just as lightweight and strong, if not stronger.

How Strong is Sing’s Core?

Independently tested, Sing’s core is 660 PSI, many times stronger when compared to any other lightweight honeycomb-type building material which usually clocks in at between 10 and 110 PSI.

That’s why you will find Sing Core inside impact doors. Sing says, “If you kick other doors, they will crash,

“Kick my door and you will break your leg.”

While lightweight and fully insulated, Sing Core is stronger that steel pound for pound.

 

Architectural Lamination

When it comes to architectural designs using high precision lamination, Sing’s factory and his high precision laminating specialists provide top of the line results with unparalleled visual impact.

Laminates can be mixed and matched in any specified pattern, orientation, or specific shapes. In fact, Sing’s stile and rail surface lamination makes his high-end door blanks look like a high precision stile and rail door, for which he is well known for in the industry.

Sing’s lamination is also included in his no-fail 50-year guarantee.

Any Surface Material

Due to Sing’s True Flat Team’s ability to keep any surface material straight and true, you will find them constantly hard at work designing the warp-free components to keep solid wood stave straight and true for 50 years, though their expertise is not limited to unstable wood grains.

 

Nearly any available flat building material can be incorporated with Sing’s core, including exotic natural wood grains, aluminum, brass, brick, bronze, cement, cold rolled steel, concrete, diamond plate steel, fiberglass, Formica, FRP, galvanized steel, hot rolled steel, HPL, Kevlar, Masonite, or stainless steel, just to name a few. That should get your creative juices flowing.

But there’s more

Any Size

us-navy-singcoreThe last thing you want on the top floor of the World Trade Center, is a warped door, and that’s why you’ll find Sing Core inside those doors.

You could find Sing Core from beneath the depths of the sea (US Navy) to outer space (NASA) and everywhere in between.

Any Application

There’s no doubt you will find Sing Core inside the finest oversized large doors, but you may find Sing’s core inside any item that is lighter in weight but expected to be used over and over again over a long life span.

100-YEAR FURNITURE

You will find Sing Core inside 100-year furniture (that’s furniture that is designed and built to last for a hundred years). This is in stark contrast to more popular inexpensive import furniture which is expected to be basically disposable.

You will discover new and varied ways to use Sing’s patented and patent-pending technologies for signage, floors, walls, ceilings, emergency shelters, modular work sheds, tiny houses, museum displays, store fixtures, and modular trade show booths which are designed to be knocked down and rebuilt over and over again for years on end.

A variety of travel industries are benefited by using Sing’s technologies, including, but not limited to hospitality, aircraft, aerospace, marine, rail, trucks, trailers, and RVs.

 

Even entire homes have built of Sing’s patented Sing Core.

Door Drawing

Looking for a door drawing? Look no more because we’re providing you with a free door sketch online just by visiting this page. On that page you can enter your doors specifications and see an immediate 3D rendition of your door rotating on screen. If you like the 3D preview of your door, you can then click on VIEW SHOPS to view, save, or share your door drawing.

This functionality is embedded in Sing Core’s pricing page, but you do not have to submit a price quote to access the power of this user-friendly simple door drawing software.

This is how you can make your door drawing easy as entering your door’s measurements, height, width, and thickness, then selecting a door skin. The resulting is a complete door drawing with dimensions, which will help greatly in you’re getting the door that you want, even if it doesn’t have Sing Core inside.

We understand that not all doors need to have Sing Core inside, unless they are over 7 ft. tall and/or 3 ½ ft. wide, but still, the owner/inventor Peter Sing wants to share his software with you, nearly as much as he’d like to see his patented and patent-pending Eco-friendly lightweight, high strength, and fully insulated building material inside every home.

He hopes you’re able to use his online simple door drawings, which admittedly aren’t the fancy door drawing you might receive for your high-end custom door, but the intention is to make it easier for you to get your free door shop drawings, which are far better than just a simple door sketch.

Sing’s specialty is large doors. He provides his patented and patent-pending large door building technologies to the biggest and best door manufacturers, millworks, and custom door builders, enabling them to build enormous doors, up to 50 ft. or more, that are lightweight, high strength, and can be guaranteed to remain warp-free for 50 years.

Building most any kind of large oversized Eco-friendly lightweight high strength door that doesn’t warp is virtually impossible, unless it has Sing Core inside.

Note that the free door drawings will each represent a flush door drawing which may include a wooden door section detail, or may host other exterior surfaces, such as, aluminum, cold rolled steel, fiberglass, FRP, galvanized steel, hot rolled steel, HPL, or stainless steel, just to name a few.

If you will need glass window lite openings included in your drawing, you will have to annotate those by hand, as this feature is currently unavailable wit your free door drawing.

In this manner you don’t have to worry about how to draw the door as you can use the Sing Core method to provide you with a drawing of a door       which you can then modify to meet your door’s specifications.

Of course, this is not a custom door drawing, but it will indeed get you in the ballpark, certainly enough to express your intentions to get the door you want without having to pay for a professional door technical drawing, and you did it without any expense by taking advantage of Sing’s free custom door drawing online.

Architectural Flush Wood Door

Working hand in hand with architects, door engineers, designers, millworks, and custom door manufacturers to help create one of a kind architectural flush wood door works of art is the everyday activity that goes on inside inventor Peter Sing’s factory nestled safely within the pristine Pacific Northwest.

Yes, you can get an architecturally inspired standard flush wood door off the shelf, but that’s not the same as a real architectural flush wood door. An authentic architectural flush wood door is a wooden flush door that is highly prestigious and unique, unlike any other door. That is, unless, you are specifying 700 matching doors to synchronize and tie into the location’s aesthetic design. Still, they would be individually unique to that specific location.

Architectural doors are art. Just like you can get copies of art to hang on your wall, you can get copies of architectural flush wood doors to hang in your door opening, but the copy is not the same as the original, and a keen eye can tell the difference.

Some clientele would never settle for hanging art that wasn’t an original piece.

Architectural flush wood doors are comprised of many materials combined in unique ways to create a unique door that is unlike any other. An architectural door designer might mix different wood grains in a unique design pattern on the flush door’s surface to create such an individual work of art.

The architectural door artist may also combine different materials into the door’s design, such as, wood, metal, and glass. Other materials, such as aluminum, brick, cement, copper, fiberglass, hot rolled steel, laminates of all varieties, plastics, and stainless steel, just to name a few of the most popular.

The best architectural flush wood door is a composite of many materials, and nobody know the intricacies of precision bonding many different materials together, all working in unison of the whole, all the (and here’s the kicker) while,

Remaining Perfectly Straight for 50 Years

than inventor, Peter Sing, who provides his patented and patent-pending architectural flush wood door technologies which are revolutionizing the way architectural doors are made.

The biggest and best architectural wood doors are large oversized flush architectural grade commercial doors, that can be very large, up to 50 ft tall or wide. (That’s a big door.) As you may have guessed, especially if you have some experience with any doors which are oversized, that keeping it straight is going to be a problem.

 

Any large door, over 7 ft tall or three-and-a-half ft wide, is going to present a problem with moving over time and the problems are exponentially worse if you’re dealing with a natural wood grain door. Due to the nature of natural wood, it expands and contracts in accordance with changes in the environment which results in the door warping, bending, twisting, or cupping.

Left to its own devices, such a large door will be problematic for the end user, requiring regular maintenance to deal with its propensity to move. That is, unless it has

Sing Core Inside

Patented Sing Core enables all the greatest door companies in the world to build enormous doors which will remain warp-free, even if they are constructed of natural wood species.

Of course, contemporary architecture and modern designers have resorted to using non-natural faux wood grain materials such as HPL to prevent the warping of architectural flush wood doors, but even so, those incredibly large doors still presented a problem with staying straight.

Sing’s patented and patent-pending warp-free door solutions along with the years of technical expertise of his True Flat Team, can help create high precisions architectural doors results unsurpassed by any previously available door-building technologies.

These new leading-edge door manufacturing processes and anti-warp materials are able to produce doors of any size, made of any flat building material (yes, even natural woods) which can be covered by Sing’s unprecedented,

50-year Warp-free Guarantee

All Sing’s premium flush wood doors are covered by his 50-year guarantee which covers any movement, as doors made with these technologies with not warp, bend, twist, cup, or otherwise fail (including structure and delamination) for 50 years.

No other company can offer such a guarantee on an Eco-friendly, lightweight, high-strength wooden flush door.

Added Architectural Benefits

Besides being warp-free and having the best and most long-lasting guarantee in the world, architectural doors that have sing Core inside also have many other extraordinary characteristics, such as

1. Lightweight

Architectural doors made with Sing Core inside are 1/3 the weight of other solid core doors manufactured with wood-based door cores. Creating doors so light in weight is extremely advantageous in reducing transportation and installation costs, as well as reducing the expense of heavy-duty architectural door hardware which is based on the weight of the door. A lighter weight door also translates to reduced maintenance costs related to regular door operation which if the door is heavier will increase stress and strain on both the structure and its hardware over time.

2. High Strength

No other Eco-friendly, lightweight door is stronger than an architectural door with Sing Core inside as these are the only doors which are stronger than steel pound for pound, independently architecturally rated by University at 660+PSI (many times stronger than commercial honeycombs used in aerospace at 10 to 110 PSI), making them the most sustainable doors known to man on planet Earth.

3. Fully Insulated

Even if your primary interest is having an architectural wood door that is straight and true, you might be pleasantly surprised that these are fully insulated for climate control (R 3.5 – R 6.5, or more, depending on architectural specs) and sport impressive sound deadening capabilities. It is not uncommon to find Sing Core inside the best soundproof doors in the most exclusive locations around the world in sound-controlled environments.

4. Solid as a Rock

One look at Sing’s site and you will see many demonstrations of just how strong his lightweight panels are. In one demonstration he is standing in the middle of a 13-foot-long 1-inch-thick panel suspended between two sawhorses with little or no deflection (any other panel would have you crashing to the ground). Another example shows two men standing amidst a 20-foot span. Sing says if you kick a standard stile and rail door, it will break, but,

“If you kick my door, you will break your leg”

first, before you break his door.

You should think about specifying Sing Core inside all your important architectural door projects.

Large Pocket Doors

For years, large pocket doors were not being installed in new builds due to problems associated with pocket doors which exceeded the normal range of door sizes. The biggest concern with these big pocket doors was their tendency to twist or cup according to the season.

If you haven’t experienced such challenges, it doesn’t take too much stretch of one’s imagination to entertain how frustrating it would be to open or close your large pocket door only to find it had seized up either inside or outside of its pocket housing.

Pocket doors are a magnificent way to cordon off an area or open up two adjoining spaces quickly and easily, and if your sliding pocket doors operate as expected, it’s an elegant sight to behold as the sliding doors smoothly disappear into their wall cavities. This is why they are sometimes referred to as a hidden pocket door or concealed sliding door. No swinging into the room so as to disrupt the area or require clearance for opening and closing, and not to be seen in the open position, as if they were never there in the first place.

Thanks to inventor Peter Sing, large pocket doors are coming back into new builds and remodels because he has provided the door industry with the warp-free technology required to create warp-free large pocket doors which can be guaranteed not to warp, bend, twist, cup, or otherwise fail, for 50 years.

 

Large Sliding Door Strong Straight Warp Free

Sing’s core, which he calls, “Sing Core,” enables pocket door manufacturers to create large pocket doors of immense size built of any material, measuring up to 50 ft or more, and still be guaranteed to offer fail-free service for 50 years.

Sing’s Eco-friendly patented and patent-pending warp-free technologies enable his factory to create non-warping substrates which are high precision (+/- .006 in.), fully insulated (R3.5 or R6.5) for sound dampening and climate control, lightweight (1/3 or less the weight of other wood-based solid core large pocket door blanks), high strength (660+ PSI, stronger than steel pound for pound), and backed by Sing’s unprecedented 50-year guarantee.

All that reduction in weight and increased strength, precision, and insulation changes the whole dynamics of a sliding door inside wall which would otherwise be problematic, so you don’t have to worry about your pocket sliding door that goes into a wall which may never come out. You can rest assured that your sliding doors into wall cavity will serve your safely, securely, and reliably over their 50-year guaranteed service life.

If you really want to upgrade your efficiency and the impact garnered by operating your precision large pocket doors, install a double pocket door. That’s right, two separate large double sliding pocket doors side by side, each sliding doors into wall cavity respectively independently or in unison. Make them full floor to ceiling large dual pocket doors for full effect.

Joining Large Sliding Pocket and Pivot Doors-Animated

Using Sing’s technology, you won’t have to worry about shelling out the big bucks for heavy duty large pocket door hardware because the hardware rating required to operate your door efficiently is based on the weight of your pocket door. Large pocket doors with Sing’s core inside weigh far less, enabling designers and installer to use less expensive pocket door hardware reducing the overall pocket door price.

Heavy duty pocket door track is unnecessary, as are expensive pocket door rollers, or other heavy-duty hardware or equipment. Sing’s lighter in weight large pocket doors are much easier to transport, manhandle, move about the job site, and install resulting in savings in pocket door cost all the way around.

Now you can have a heavy-duty impact resistant large pocket door that is lightweight and high strength without all the added expense and regular maintenance of any other type of heavy duty pocket door.

DIY Pocket Door

Okay, since you asked, “Can I create a DIY version of a large pocket door with Sing Core inside?” The answer is (with respect to Sing’s patents), you could create your own wood pocket door in do it yourself fashion using Sing’s ideas.

You will need some carpentry skills, woodworking tools, and a shop if you’re thinking about adding a pocket door to your DIY list of projects. If you’re ready, you’ll need a perfectly flat work surface a little larger than the size of your proposed custom pocket doors. You will also need a DIY cold press system, which could include lots of clamps or a vacuum bag lamination system.

First, you will need to build the torsion box grid substructure. You can find directions online using Google how to build a torsion box grid, but note that unlike the instructions you will find, Sing using vertical grain orientation in the wood fiber used for the torsion box, not horizontal, for added shear strength.

Sing also knows the small the individual cells of the torsion box, the more strength, so his cells vary depending on the application from 2×2, 2×3, or 3×3-inch cells.

Build your torsion box inside a wood frame and insert any necessary hardpoints (wood blocking for door hardware). After you’ve completed the torsion box in the desired size, glue rigid foam (Sing uses recycled EPS foam as his default in the factory, but clients may specify other materials) inside the empty spaces inside the otherwise empty torsion box centers, and let dry.

Precision sand this reinforced wood fiber/foam core to the exact desired thickness.

Now you have a dimensionally stable lightweight core which needs to be sandwiched between two stress skins (say quarter-inch plywood) and this is cold-pressed and left to cure.

You’re on your way to building a pocket door by laminating your desired wood surface material and any edge trim you may want as you’re getting ready to be adding pocket door to existing wall(s) in your project location (home, office, etc.).

This should be suitable for making a pocket door which is lightweight, high strength and will work for any 8 foot pocket door or less.

Why 8-ft. pocket door or less? Because Sing’s True Flat Team uses additional patented and patent-pending anti-warp technologies which take into account the size of the large pocket door, the surface materials, its application, whether it will be an interior pocket door or exterior pocket door, how often and when will it be used, and in some cases which direction the door faces to determine the exact components within his composite hybrid core.

Sing is well known for using this patented method to build the best pocket door in the world because his factory is staffed with both the craftsmen and equipment (the biggest panel saws, glue machines, sanders, and presses in the industry) to create large pocket doors in a reasonable amount of time.

The biggest and best pocket door manufacturers, millworks, and custom pocket door builders rely on Sing’s ability to deliver such high precision pocket door cores in time and within budget to get the job done, without having to risk the embarrassment of selling a potentially warping large pocket door.

Pivot Entry Door

When it comes to large entrance doors, one pivot entry door comes to mind: That beautifully big pivot entry door with natural wood grain is so pleasing to the eye.

Q: How in the world do they keep such an enormous exterior wood door from warping?
A: With Sing Core inside.

Large entrance doors instantly garner attention and add curb appeal to any project, but featuring pivot doors as your entrance door makes an even greater impact on anyone who encounters such an enormous work of art.

Pivoting doors are more in demand because they attract attention like a magnet, especially if your pivot entry door is made of natural wood grain, because this just cries out: “Constant maintenance required” due to changes in the environment which causes such a big wood pivot door to warp. It doesn’t make the pivot door any less beautiful, but the regular maintenance can make such a door far less affordable over time.

That’s where patented Sing Core and inventor Peter Sing’s patent-pending anti-warp devices come to save the day. Sing, also the president of Sing Core, uses his latest technological advancements to help any pivot door company, millwork, or custom pivot door manufacturer build pivot entry doors of immense size quickly and easily without threat of failure or warping.

The idea of a new generation of warp-free modern entry doors is foreign to pivot door designers and engineers of yesteryear, that is, unless they have already heard about – and use – Sing Core inside their most important pivot entry door jobs.

How to Build a Warp-free Pivot Entry Door

Solid wood entry doors present the greatest numbers of challenges for the craftspeople tasked with transferring the architectural pivot door dreams into reality. We love the natural wood grain but it’s tendency to move at the slightest change in the environment creates problems. So, starting with Sing Core is the perfect place to start if you want to put your worries associated with exterior pivot doors behind you.

For years, Sing has been supporting the best of the best in contemporary architecture and designs, as well as the biggest most powerful pivot door companies in the world with the solutions to the problems associated with pivot entry doors over seven ft tall and three-and-a-half ft wide. Once you know how Sing’s core works, you, too, will know how to build a warp-free pivot entry door.

If you look deep inside the structure of Sing’s warp-free pivoting doors, you will find that the first component is torsion box, only the grain is oriented vertically instead of horizontally as is the case for traditional torsion box. Sing also keeps the structure grids of the torsion box very small, like two to three inches. Then, he fills the voids (the open centers of the individual torsion boxes which is normally left hollow) with recycled rigid foam.

Using formaldehyde-free adhesive, Sing cold-presses the composite materials together, sandwiched between two stress skins to create the solid hybrid warp-free pivot entry door blanks which are found inside the best high-end doors.

Even so, Sing’s warp-free technologies do not end there. Pivot entry doors are especially challenging due to potentially having one side of the door facing the elements, as in the case of exterior pivot doors, while the other side faces the structure’s interior. This is the perfect recipe for warping pivot doors.

Sing has a True Flat Team of door engineers in-house who assist in the design and creation of the core in such a way so as to account for all the challenges each pivot entry door may face. For instance, solid wood entry doors present the most problems, but not for Sing’s team.

Wood Entry Doors

They go to work, taking into account all the details of the door, including how the door will be used, what direction will it face, at what altitude will it make its home, what weather conditions will it be subject to, how will it be operated, suspended, and secured? As well as what

Sing Core can be found inside modern entry doors from beneath the sea (US Navy) to outer space (NASA) and everywhere in between because it is the highest precision (+/- .006 in.) Eco-friendly fully insulated (R3.5 to R6.5), lightweight (1/3 or less the weight of other solid wood-based cores), high strength (660+ PSI, stronger than steel pound for pound), impact resistant, climate control, and sound deadening pivot door substrate.

Any of Sing’s pivot doors could be made from any flat building materials, such as any type of natural wood grain, aluminum, brass, cement, concrete, cold rolled steel, copper, fiberglass, Formica, FRP, glass, HPL, Kevlar, laminates, Masonite, MDF, stainless steel, veneers, and just about anything you could imagine.

Also, your pivot entry doors are not limited in size, as Sing’s door blanks are featured in really big pivot doors up to 50 ft or more, and each can still be covered by Sing’s 50-year warp-free guarantee.

50-YEAR GUARANTEE

Sing offers the only way to build doors in the world which can be safely and securely guaranteed not to warp, bend, twist, cup, or otherwise fail, (including full structure warranty and guaranteed against delamination) for a full 50 years.

This is the best pivot entry door guarantee in the world, another reason why biggest and best door makers use it.

The world is changing, growing, and expanding at a rapid rate, and Sing’s pivot doors are changing the way architectural pivot doors of any type or style are being made.

Large Barn Door

In a world where anything could change in a minute you might wonder if this is one of those moments in time when your ideas about any large barn door could shift radically, thanks to inventor Peter Sing’s invention, as we discover how his revolutionary patented large barn door core is changing how doors are built. And, yes, we said large barn door. That means any large barn door of any size, up to 50 ft or more.

Sing’s patented and patent-pending technologies empower architects, door engineers, millworks, custom door builders, and the biggest and best large barn door manufacturers to build any extra large barn door of any size, and guarantee them not to warp for 50 years.

In most cases, barn doors are inexpensive, and the sliding barn door hardware is easy to find. Basically, any do-it-yourselfer can build a diy large barn door by hanging a 4×8 sheet of plywood from any sliding barn door hardware which is readily available from any hardware store.

This is why you find them erected on farms and other industrial settings because it doesn’t take a lot of engineering to figure out the basic details of any large barn door project.

Basically, in a diy large barn door application, all you need to know is the size of the opening, and determine whether you can obtain or make the large barn door panels the size to fill the opening.

Once you have determined the size of the opening and materials, the weight and width of the barn doors will help to determine the hardware which will be required to hang said barn doors.

This is a fairly simple and inexpensive method of dealing with openings you’d rather be able to secure to some degree if your expectations are low, and if the size your barn doors are exceeding the limitations of available building materials (i.e., 4×8 or 5×10) then it can be increasingly difficult to create panels large enough that will offer an acceptable degree of longevity.

Large Modern Barn Door

Barn doors are expanding greatly in size and application as modern interior designs are featuring a vast variety of barn door ideas as expressed in contemporary architectural designs the world over. No longer are sliding barn doors limited to closing and accessing large barn door openings, industrial, warehouse, or aerospace applications.

Today, it is not uncommon to find modern barn doors in living rooms, kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms, dens, garages, and even featured as sliding front doors for a unique greeting and main egress impression for visitors to unique homes.

In large front door applications, the barn door hardware is located inside the home (not outside as in an actual barn site) or hidden within the adjoining wall spaces, like large front entry pocket doors.

That said, you will be finding more and more modern barn doors springing up all over your property’s exterior and interior locations, and when they are large sliding barn doors, the only way to assure their remaining straight and true is to have them built with patented and patent-pending Sing Core solutions embedded within the doors themselves.

Sing’s patented large barn door core is the only way to build fully insulated Eco-friendly lightweight barn doors of any size or material which can be guaranteed to remain warp-free, including full structural warranty, for 50-years.

How to Build a Large Modern Barn Door

To understand how to build a large modern barn door that can be backed by a 50-year warp-free guarantee is to understand the basics of patented Sing Core. Sing Core starts with a basic small grid torsion box matrix built of natural vertical grain wood fiber (many times more rigid than standard horizontal grain). Instead of leaving the torsion box voids empty, they are filled wall to wall with rigid recycled insulation. Finally, this is all enclosed using formaldehyde-free bonding agents between stress skins, and this is the basis of the embedded power of warp-free Sing Core.

The remainder of the large barn door is built around this revolutionary building material, the brainchild of inventor Peter Sing.

Oversized Wood Barn Doors

Of all wood sliding barn doors, oversized wood barn doors are the most problematic due to the natural tendency of wood grain to change in response to the environmental conditions surround the barn doors themselves.

For instance, a knotty alder sliding barn door is going to present problems due to the prevalence of knots throughout the barn door’s surface which greatly increases the tendency to warp. In the case of a knotty alder sliding barn door, Sing’s True Flat Team will go to work to further enhance the patented Sing Core substrate by inserting various anti-warp technologies to effectively counteract any of the knotty alder’s potential movement or warping.

High Precision Modern Barn Doors

This is how you create the highest precision sustainable modern barn doors known to man, with patented and patent-pending Sing Core inside. No other substrate is so lightweight, with stricter tolerances (Sing Core is +/- .006 in.), non-warping, fully insulated, and stronger than steel pound for pound.

While such high precision may not be necessary to fill the opening of a barn or warehouse, modern barn door applications, especially as an exterior front entry door, require higher levels of accuracy and consistency to effectively protect and fully separate the two main adjoining spaces.

When used as a front door, it is imperative for the modern barn door to remain straight and true to properly seal and protect the interior from the exterior environment. And if the main access door were to warp, it could compromise the ability of the entry door so much as to render the barn door unusable.

50 Year Large Barn Door Guarantee

If you have your large barn doors built with Sing Core inside, you can be assured to enjoy 50 years of low maintenance fail free service. Sing guarantees every large barn door not to warp, bend, twist, cup, or otherwise fail (far meeting or exceeding AWI standards) for 50 years, including full structure and delamination.

That’s why the biggest door companies, best mill works, and most prestigious custom sliding barn door manufacturers in the world say,

“There’s no other way to do it.”
