Metal Pivot Doors

Metal pivot doors include modern steel doors which are by far the most popular modern metal front doors in demand today.

Today’s modern metal door can take on a wide variety of visual representations and can include the combining of many different materials to achieve a unique architectural design, look and feel.

Modern steel front doors are leading the pack in the arena of modern steel doors, for many reasons, which include the wide variety of steel materials which are available for making your modern metal door, such as hot rolled steel, cold rolled steel, diamond plate steel, galvanized steel, and stainless steel modern metal front doors.

Of all the varieties of steel doors the steel pivot door is the most prestigious and the bigger the pivot door the more attention is garnered when encountering such an architectural contemporary work of art.

When approaching large modern steel entry doors, certain challenges tend to arise when approaching this type of design because any metal pivot door of that size is going to be extremely heavy, and if it was constructed using traditional welding processes, you will sacrifice the precision of your contemporary steel entry doors.

Sing Core solves all the problems associated with steel doors

Solving the problems associated with large contemporary steel doors is what inventor Peter Sing’s patented and patent-pending true flat technologies are all about. His invention, aptly referred to as “Sing Core” is the secret ingredient inside the most noted large door designs found in the most exclusive locations throughout the United States, and the world at large.

What makes Sing’s core so special?

High Precision

When you start welding on a modern steel door, you will lose the precision of that door, as welding may be an effective way to join steel components structurally, but it damages and distorts the steel in the process. Sing’s patented steel fabrication process does not use heat or welding of any kind which preserves the integrity of the steel throughout, and Sing’s core is already high precision, sporting tolerances of +/- .006-inch.

Lightweight

The issue of heavy weight is the first thought that comes to mind as Sing’s core is so effective at reducing the weight of the otherwise overweight modern steel pivot doors, which results in a door that can be shipped less expensively, easier to handle in the shop and on the job site, and requires much less expensive “heavy duty” hardware to accommodate these modern steel exterior doors with Sing Core inside. Whatever the steel weighs (+ 10%) will be the weight of the door. The heaviest gauge you would need is 18G, and 20G is best and looks like a solid steel blank.

Stronger than Steel

Sing’s revolutionary technologies empower contemporary architects, door designers, the biggest and best companies to provide their clientele with modern stainless steel entry doors that are lightweight yet stronger than steel pound for pound. Sing Core was tested to far exceed 660 PSI.

How can 20 Gauged steel be so much stronger? Why? See unbreakable glass:

 

 

 

Glass stronger than steel? Even hitting unbreakable mirror with a hammer does not break.

While solving the issues associated with weight and strength would be surpass the expectations of anyone looking for such a solution prior to Sing’s invention, there are other advantages to having Sing Core incorporated within your modern steel door design.

Fully Insulated

While building a torsion box door might be a enough to handle the weight requirements, Sing fills the voids, which world normally be left open, with rigid recycled foam which offers any such door the ability to offer insulation for both climate control and sound deadening qualities.

50-year Warp-free Guarantee

Only doors made with Sing’s core inside can be guaranteed not to warp, bend, twist, or otherwise fail (including structure) for 50 years. We know of no other company can do that.

That’s why the biggest and most renowned door companies in the world say,

“There was just no way it could be done before we had Sing’s core.”

Of course, steel is not the only metal used to make metal pivot doors, aluminum pivot doors are also among the more popular contemporary metal doors.

Sing Core specializes in contemporary metal front doors made in the united states aluminum door modern metal door designs. Though most are commercial aluminum door pivot door applications, aluminium pivot front doors are becoming increasingly popular in high-end residential projects as the are growing in popularity amidst other architectural modern metal front door designs.

Modern Pivot Doors

Modern pivot doors are making dramatic appearances in the latest contemporary architecture designs today, and the bigger they are, the more impressive they are. Among them, the modern steel door and other types of custom modern entry doors are leading the way in new methods of approaching large modern pivot doors.

There’s no doubt that modern pivot doors represent the proverbial balancing act between weight and strength and as each modern pivot door must conduct its own balancing act according to the visionary concept of the contemporary architect, designer, or door engineer.

While pivot doors are often thought of as pivoting on a precise center point, more modern pivot doors are often outfitted with pivot door hardware that is not based on the pivot door’s center. Modern contemporary large pivot door installations can be off-center, even featuring extreme edge pivot door hardware, which can be quite impressive.

The challenge which comes with the territory surrounding the concept of modern pivot doors is associated with weight, as a heavy pivoting door will cause undue wear and tear on both the hardware and the structure requiring additional maintenance over time, and strength, as attempts to reduce the weight of the door will often result in a warped door, which doesn’t do anyone any good at all.

And modern metal pivot doors, such as the modern steel door, are by far the heaviest, followed by natural wood, which everyone already knows is a huge problem when in comes to warping due to the nature of natural wood grain to move according to changes in the environment.

To complicate things even further, imagine using modern pivot doors custom modern entry doors, where there’s a good chance that one side of the modern architecture pivot door faces the elements, possibly 100% exposed to the weather. This is a certain recipe for disaster. That is, unless your modern pivot doors have

Sing Core inside.

What is Sing Core?

Sing Core is the invention which is changing the way doors are made around the world.

Now, big pivot doors don’t have to be heavy or prone to warp, thanks to inventor, Peter Sing’s patented and patent-pending anti-warp technologies. Using Sing’s Core, you can have an Eco-friendly lightweight modern pivot door that weighs far less than any other solid wood-based core system, yet is very strong.

Stronger than Steel

How strong is Sing’s modern pivot door core? Stronger than steel pound-for-pound, and it was independently tested and rated at 660 PSI.

In fascinating strength demonstration, you will find the inventor, Mr. Sing performing amazing feats, such as standing on a 20 ft. span supported between a pair of sawhorses and see for yourself; little or no deflection. It is quite astonishing.

And with the most bold and modern pivot doors being so lightweight and strong, this is only the beginning.

Modern pivot doors with Sing’s core inside (yes, even the modern steel doors) not only weight less and are many times stronger, but they also take on an impressive set of attributes just by virtue of having Sing’s patented invention inside.

Fully Insulated Modern Pivot Doors

Sing’s doors are also fully insulated for climate control and sound deadening qualities that are hard to be found (or impossible to find) in such a door this lightweight and strong.

And if you didn’t already know, thanks to Sing’s patented and patent-pending anti-warp technologies doors may now be had made of nearly any material and any size, and come backed by Sing’s unparalleled

50-year Warp-free Guarantee

No, that is not a misprint. You might expect 5-years, but Sing guarantees that doors made to specs with his technology inside can be guaranteed not to warp, bend, twist, or otherwise fail (including full structure) for 50 years. No one else can do that.

While Sing is responsible for making the largest door impact in so many high-end industries across the board, Sing claims that he has yet to make even one door.

According to inventor, Peter Sing, he only makes the door core, or superior substrate, which he supplies to the world’s top architects, door manufactures, millworks, and custom builders of modern pivot doors, who make his inventions look so good.

Lightweight Doors

Lightweight doors are the mainstay of Sing Core’s offerings, providing the highest precision lightweight door blanks to the biggest and best door companies, millworks, and custom door manufacturers in the world. But don’t let the light weight fool you as Sing Core is stronger than steel pound for pound, and doors with Sing Core inside come with a 50-year warp-free guarantee.

If you don’t already know, there’s a new way to build the best lightweight doors with the highest performance ratings in the industry using inventor Peter Sing’s patented and patent-pending technologies architects, door engineers, and door builders are able to create lightweight doors of enormous size which can be guaranteed to provide faithful fail-free service for 50 years.

How to Build a Lightweight Door

Since the late 1800’s experienced woodworkers have known the secret of building a wide, large flat wood surface was to use an interior torsion box which helped to resist the nature of wood grain to move according to changes in the environment. Torsion box was often incorporated into the designs of large spanning tabletops and very large doors. Even though the overall results were far better to build with torsion box than without it, these massive surfaces would move due to the natural wood surfaces.

A torsion box is a grid made of wood-framed boxes forming a flat grid inside of the large spanning exterior skins. This interior wood grid structure is time consuming to build, but effective in reducing the overall weight of the structure and resisting movement while increasing compression strength.

Technology presented less expensive honeycomb core alternatives to the original torsion box concept to as the answer to how to build a lightweight door quickly and inexpensively. Still, the standard honeycomb core boasts only a 10 to 110 PSI and has virtually little or no sheer strength.

Sing’s invention greatly improves on the tried and true benefits and design of torsion box substrates for building a lightweight door first by flipping the grain of the torsion box frame to perpendicular to the exterior skins. This minor tweak increased the strength of the torsion box (which used only horizontal oriented grain in the past) many times, but he wasn’t done, yet.

Then, Sing filled the voids of the torsion boxes wall to wall with rigid recycled foam insulation, creating a composite hybrid core that when sandwiched between two stress skins created a structurally sound solid hybrid composite panel which could span large areas unsupported.

This is the most effective way known how to build a lightweight door to date.

Sing’s invention has empowered architects and engineers to push the reaches of standard building materials by replacing traditional lumber or plywood with his Sing Panels. Nearly anything can be made with this new patented building material which has been independently tested to sport a minimum of 660 PSI and having the highest tolerances of any other building material (+/- .006 in.).

Sing’s factory provides the strongest lightweight door blanks for building the largest and strongest lightweight doors on or off the planet. That’s why you could find them anywhere from beneath the sea (U.S. Navy) to outer space (NASA) and everywhere in between.

Any Type of Lightweight Door

Sing’s True Flat Team can create door blanks for any type of door ever made, only the result will be lighter in weight and many times stronger than the door which preceded it. That’s why lightweight doors with Sing Core inside are growing in popularity as replacement doors in major projects and those requiring high performance and low maintenance for everything from historical renovations to leading edge scientific applications.

Imagine making any kind of door lightweight and extremely strong like,

Aluminum doors
Fiberglass doors
French doors
Hot rolled steel doors
HPL doors
Stainless steel doors
Stile and rail doors
Acrylic doors
Brass doors
Cement & concrete doors
Cold rolled steel doors
Entry Doors
Exterior front doors
Formica doors
Galvanized steel doors
Kevlar doors
Laminate doors
Masonite doors

Any Door Skin

The options available for the addition of a virtually unlimited vast variety of available doors skins from exotic natural wood grains to high-tech impervious synthetic surfaces, and you can now have any available type of metal door known to man, only have it as a lightweight metal door which is stronger than steel.

Insulated Lightweight Door

Another benefit of having Sing’s core inside your door, is that each door is fully insulated for sound deadening and climate quality characteristics, which you will not find in any other Eco-friendly lightweight door which sports such high strength and tolerances.

50-year Guaranteed Lightweight Door

These are the only doors in the world that come with a full 50-year guarantee. Your lightweight door with Sing Core inside is guaranteed not to warp, bend, twist, or otherwise fail for 50 years, including full structure and free from delamination.

If you agree with the biggest and best door manufacturers, you will be saying,

“There’s just no other way to do it,”

And you’d be right.

Indoor Barn Doors

Interior barn doors are the fastest and easiest way to fill an opening. Depending on the wall and it’s opening, a creative interior barn door solution might be something that you might like to look into before you decide on your final indoor barn door specs.

 

And when it comes to indoor barn doors, size makes a big difference. If your sliding barn door is over wider than a 48 inch barn door or taller than an 8ft barn door, you should consider seeking out a millwork or custom barn door manufacturer who specializes in big barn doors.

The reason you need to seek out a professional large sliding barn door builder is because it takes extraordinary skills and abilities to create a tall or extra wide barn door will not fail long after installation due to warping.

Sliding barn doors need to remain fairly straight and true to operate efficiently. The industry (according to national AWI standards) allows for up to ¼ inch deflection over a 7 ft. span to be considered straight. Hardware manufacturers and installers are conscious of movement of indoor barn doors and they allow for the quarter-inch movement.

If your large modern barn doors are over standard sized interior sliding barn doors, you will have problems with warping barn doors which will move in excess of AWI standards when there are environmental or climate changes. The bigger the indoor barn doors, the bigger the problems are due to being so large. It is exponentially more problematic for oversized wood sliding barn doors.

So, if you are particular about your interior sliding barn door, whether it is among the categories of rustic barn doors, classic barn doors, or modern barn doors, you want indoor barn doors that are not going to warp or cause you headaches due to requiring constant maintenance or replacement of your barn door.

Or, the next time you go to specify or purchase a barn door, you might look for a door that is the perfect match for this request,

“I want warp-free indoor barn doors that are guaranteed for 50 years.”

Asking that question will get you what you want because there’s only one way to build an Eco-friendly lightweight and high strength tall or wide barn door that can remain warp-free for 50 years, and that’s with,

“Sing Core inside.”

Now, you could try to build yourself some diy barn doors because for the most part, your local door company is not going to even offer to attempt building a barn door which is very big, because they know if they do it, they’re going to look bad when it fails. If the end user insists, they make have the barn door custom made for you, but it will likely to be excluded by means of a waiver from any warranty that might cover the rest of the job.

But, if you’re working with the biggest and best door companies in the world, when you ask for

Warp-free indoor barn doors

They give you warp free interior barn doors that can be guaranteed to remain straight and true for 50 years.

How do you build a warp-free rolling barn door?

After your sliding barn door company gets your specs, they contact inventor Peter Sing, the creator of patented Sing Core as well as other patents and warp-free solutions which are patent pending. His factory, located in the lush Pacific Northwest’s Washington State, creates the lightweight high strength warp-free barn door substrate which is revolutionizing the way indoor barn doors are made.

To answer the question, “How do you build warp-free sliding barn doors,” you must start by having the basic details about the measurements of your sliding barn doors. You will need to know the height, width, and thickness of the indoor barn doors you want.

Will your order consist of one big modern barn door, or will there be many sliding barn doors in many different sizes?

It’s also a good idea, early on, to know what type of material you would like your interior barn doors to be made of.

You can specify nearly any flat building material to be used for your custom sliding barn door. Some types of indoor barn door include:

Aluminum Barn Doors

Brass/Bronze Barn Doors

Ceramic Barn Doors

Cold Rolled Steel Barn Doors

Copper Barn Doors

Diamond Plate Steel Barn Doors

Fiberglass Barn Doors

Formica Barn Doors

FRP Barn Doors

Galvanized Steel Barn Doors

Hot Rolled Steel Barn Doors

HPL Barn Doors

Laminated Barn Doors

Masonite Barn Doors

Stainless Steel Barn Doors

Wood Species Barn Doors

Just to name a few.

Plus, Sing’s patented and patent pending indoor barn doors offers many other characteristics that are the envy of any other method of manufacturing any kind of door in the world. Some of the features you will be happy to have, thanks to Sing’s core include (but are not limited to):

1. Eco-friendly

Made naturally in the Pacific Northwest with low energy consumption and conscious use of raw materials such as natural wood grain stock, recycled goods, formaldehyde-free adhesives, and the light weight of Sing’s core consumes less energy in the shipping process, reducing the carbon footprint of every door with Sing Core inside.

2. Lightweight

Sing’s sliding barn door solutions weight one-third or less the weight of other wood based indoor barn door core material. The lightweight of sliding barn doors with Sing’s core inside means, less expensive hardware (which is based on the weight of the door), less stress and strain on hardware and structure over time, easier to handle, ship, and install.

3. High Strength

No Eco-friendly lightweight structure material is stronger than Sing Core. Other honeycomb cores are weak (only 10 to 110 PSI), while Sing’s core has been independently tested at 660+ PSI, that’s stronger than steel pound for pound. Mr. Sing’s strength demonstrations are well known as he stands on unsupported large spanning one-inch panels with little or no deflection.

4. High Precision

Patented solid composite hybrid Sing Core is very high precision with high tolerances (+/- .006) with the most impressive shear strength, and can be precision-sanded within thousands of an inch.

5. Fully Insulated

Sing’s core is fully insulated for both sound deadening and climate control. Standard R-rating is R3.5 to R6.5 per inch and can be re-engineered to meet higher specifications and STC ratings.

6. Any Size Barn Door

Sing’s core enables him to help create warp-free large sliding barn doors or immense size up to 50 ft. or more that can be guaranteed for 50 years.

7. Any Style Barn Door

Using Sing’s core as the base material of your indoor barn door you (or more correctly, your custom door manufacturer, millwork, or door company) can create any style of barn door from complex architectural surfaces to stile and rail designs of all kinds, supporting any available flat surface material.

Wood Sliding Barn Doors

Large wood sliding door are making a comeback. While wooden barn doors have the striking look and visual appeal, just trying to keep them straight was a real problem. Before the invention of Sing’s core, the answer was to use faux wood doors. Doors that were stamped and made of synthetic materials but made to look like wood. Now, you can have your real wood doors back again, thanks to Sing Core.

Top 10 Wood Sliding Barn Doors

Here of some of the more popular natural wood indoor barn doors that people order from Sing Core:

1. pine barn door

2. knotty alder barn door

3. oak barn door

4. walnut barn door

5. knotty pine barn door

6. alder barn door

7. white oak barn door

8. cypress barn door

9. black walnut barn door

10. cedar sliding barn door

Stile and Rail Barn Doors

Peter Sing and his True Flat Team have many specialized methods of creating indoor barn doors to meet the specs of architects and designers who want the best most sustainable doors on the planet. And when it comes to Sing’s infamous stile and rail doors, you might be surprised to find that they aren’t made of stiles and rails at all.

According to Sing,

“Stile and rail doors are weak. If someone kicks your door, it will break. If you kick my door, it will break your leg!”

Though Sing’s stile and rail and multi-panel doors look like they’re made of many pieces, it’s really just a Sing Core slab door with decorative wood or molding added to make it look like a panel barn door, or stile and rail door. It’s really Sing’s impact resistant barn door panel treatment.

Large Barn Doors

Eco-friendly large barn doors are taking on a whole new look and are a more sustainable solution for indoor and outdoor applications while commanding a unique stylistic approach to contemporary architectural design. The best extra large barn doors are emerging as featured presentations in all types of structures from residential and commercial to hospitality and industrial venues.

This new approach to the modern barn door is creating a stir as simple design of the traditional wood sliding barn door is now able to incorporate exciting characteristics that far surpass the simplicity of your grandfather’s farmhouse sliding door by incorporating this new generation of large architectural barn doors.

So, what makes this superior modern barn door so different from the sliding farm door of yesteryear?

While they may look similar, the large barn door hardware is much more sophisticated, but the biggest secret of all is what is found deep inside the best large barn doors of all time. If you were to look inside, you would find a patented substrate specifically designed to build the ultimate large barn doors.

Inventor Peter Sing is responsible for discovering and manufacturing this unique hybrid composite door core found inside the best modern barn doors today. Sing’s core imbues each barn door with astounding characteristics which cannot all be found in any other type of barn door, anywhere on Earth.

For instance, if your modern barn door has Sing Core inside, you will possess a door which is

  1. Eco-friendly
  2. Lightweight
  3. High strength
  4. Solid as a rock
  5. Fully insulated
  6. Warp-free
  7. Guaranteed 50 Years

Large Barn Door Problems

If you were going to make a high-end large barn door for a demanding client or visionary contemporary architect, you would have to hire a door engineer with the ability to design sliding barn doors which could be built to architectural specifications. The goal is to have an end product, a large barn door, which will not warp, fail, or require regular ongoing maintenance to keep it operational over time.

If the large barn door was quite oversized, say anything over three-and-a-half ft. wide and 7 ft. tall, you would find some extreme goings on inside such a door. There would likely be some type of welded steel interior framing and other heavy inserted in an effort to keep such a big barn door from warping, a pretty toxic approach to trying to solve the problems associated with large barn doors.

This is the biggest complaint with failing large barn doors: They warp. And warping barn door, if they are warped enough, will cease to operate, and if they are very heavy, this causes extra stress and strain on both hardware and the structure itself.

 

Large Barn Door Solutions

Thanks to Sing and his patented inventions and patent-pending solutions there is a way to make a lightweight high strength modern pivot door which can be guaranteed not to warp or fail for 50 years. There is no other way to accomplish such a feat without Sing Core inside.

Eco-friendly Large Barn Doors

Sing’s manufacturing facility is nestled in the pristine Pacific Northwest, where ecological approaches to building and creating almost anything is of profound importance to its inhabitants. So, Sing’s factory uses the best of both worlds, basic traditional woodworking craftsmanship and advanced cold-press technologies which use very little energy consumption. Sing also uses formaldehyde-free adhesive and responsible use of natural and recycled materials, plus being so lightweight makes them easier to ship around the world using less fuel than other barn door manufacturing methods, assuring Sing’s products have an extremely minimal carbon footprint.

Lightweight Large Barn Doors

Sing’s patented and patent pending technologies empower his True Flat Team to create these amazing hybrid solid composite cores which weigh a fraction of other solid wood-based structure cores. Lighter weight barn doors mean lighter weight hardware and less stress and strain on the structure. This prevents the need for constant ongoing maintenance to the barn door, a huge savings over time.

High Strength Large Barn Doors

You might not need bulletproof barn doors, but you will enjoy having lightweight large barn doors that are stronger than steel pound for pound. Sing’s large barn door core material is independently rated at 660+ PSI and is featured inside some of the highest security doors and impact doors in the world.

You can see that Sing’s panels are so strong that the inventor can stand in the middle of this one-inch-thick 13 ft. panel with little or not deflection. That is an effective strength demonstration.

Solid as a Rock Large Barn Doors

Sing’s patented and patent pending door core technology is based on his solid hybrid composite invention which is basically a vertical grain torsion box panel where the grid which would normally be left empty is filled wall to wall with recycled rigid foam insulation. Once assembled and cured they can take a beating, and unlike other doors can easily be repaired to full structure strength if breached, which is more sustainable than replacing the whole door.

Sing says, “Kick any standard stile and rail and it will break. Kick my door an you will break your leg!”

Fully Insulated Large Barn Doors

Inherit in Sing’s large barn door core invention is full insulation throughout which offers huge advantages to not only end users, but the sound proof door and refrigeration door manufacturers who rely on Sing to provide them with the insulated substrate to make the best rated lightweight large barn doors fully formatted for sound deadening and climate control.

Warp-free Large Barn Doors

And Mr. Sing is the King of the Warp-free large barn door. All hanging barn doors move according to changes in the environmental elements which surround them, and to make matters even worse, this is more problematic when in use as an exterior door, where one side is facing a structure’s interior, while the other could be exposed one hundred present to the weather.

Sing proudly guarantees his large barn door cores not to warp, bend, twist, or cup for a very long time, in fact, 50 times more than any other door manufacturer.

Large Barn Doors Guaranteed 50 Years

Unprecedented in the industry Peter Sing fully guarantees his large barn door core not to warp, bend, twist, or otherwise fail for 50 years, including structure & lamination. Nobody has ever dared to go there, and Sing who supplies the biggest and best door companies in the world with warp-free door core for all their oversized doors says, “If I couldn’t do it, you would have heard about it by now.”

And they all say the same thing,

“It’s the only way to do it.”

For if there were any other way to make a lightweight warp-free door, you know these companies would do it themselves, but they rely on Peter Sing’s patented innovations to provide what would otherwise be impossible, so they can better serve their clientele.

Should all your doors have Sing Core inside?

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′ ft. 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.

Low VOA and Warp Free

Our friends at Crestmark Architectural Millwork found SingCore to be particularly useful in large cabinet doors for the Museum of Modern Art. Our warp free oversize panels combined perfectly with the museums need for low VOA materials for archival room use.

Coming it at 1/3rd the weight of all wood panels, SingCore is extremely popular in the modular or moveable furniture space.

Millworks

How Sing Core supports contemporary millworks and brings original architectural doors to life. Join top door producers in the country like Pella and Anderson Window and Doors to get on board with the SingCore revolution.

What we do:

We have helped millworks and high end door manufacturers to solve their production problems by providing massive amounts of door substrate to increase their productivity. Sing Core has the best and most efficient machines and technologies to provide the fastest delivery of the highest quality door panels in large quantities for our customers to build high end wood veneer doors, wood stave doors, even the strongest, lightweight, impact resistant, warp-free stile and rail door can start with Sing door substrate, then adding door trim molding to create this new generation of highly advanced door. Stronger, lightweight, warp-free, insulated, sound deadening doors in quantity at a much lower cost than your high-end conventional stile and rail door. Get a price quote, we will help you to improve your productivity without having to hire large production crews to meet your deadline. This is a much better solution as an alternative to conventional stile and rail door.

“We are here to support you.”

Our main business is building very large door substrates that are guaranteed to meet or exceed AWI standards.

How to get a price quote:

It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3: Length, Width and Thickness of the door substrate. In one click you can see a shop drawing of the Sing Panel that you are looking to purchase.

Sing Core supplies valuable components to the construction process. Patented Sing panels, posts and beams are integrated into projects where the characteristics of lightweight, high strength, insulation and alternative Eco-friendly manufacturing options are either sought after or used in solving the problems associated with large scale projects.

The process works something, like this:

  1. The Architect specifies, “SingCore” inside the products, let’s say, a large pivot door
  2. The General Contractor seeks out a qualified Millwork who obtains unfinished pivot door from Sing Core
  3. Sing Core manufactures the pivot door blank to architectural specs and ships to millwork
  4. Millwork finishes and installs hardware and provides finished pivot door to the job site
  5. Installers hang and or install the pivot door
What we do the best…the best in the world:
We provide the  best substrate for the millwork and door industries to build the best door in the world. The core makes all the difference. If you use LVL core, wood stave core, particle board core, aluminum core, or paper core you should try Sing Core. Millworks know LVL and wood stave is too heavy and warps, aluminum honeycomb core has no precision  once the core is stretched, paper core is similar and offers very little support and no sheer strength. 
We supply our Sing Core door substrate to the largest door manufacturers to replace their door cores as mentioned previously. One of our largest customers said,

“Since we switched to Sing Core, we never have any warping issue, which was the biggest problem for recalls no matter how hard we tried to make our LVL cores work.”

1. For a highly smooth paint grade surface, such as lacquer finish. 1 with MDF skin, 2 with AB plywood as surface skin. They have one thing in common; no matter which skin you select, as long as it is artisan grade, it will be guaranteed for the flatness, lightweight, and high strength, which is the highest standard in the industry.
2. Veneer-ready artisan grade Sing substrate panels for doors or high end millwork.
3. Wood stave-ready.  By adding 1/8-inch to 3/8-inch hardwood to create a panel which looks and performs better than any solid wood or any other type of door core, guaranteed.
4. Metal door. Almost any metal, or non-metal skin can be use as Sing door finish material. It functions and looks better than any other method, such as welding, or use other type of frame technology. Sing metal panels are stronger pound for pound than any solid material, lighter in weight, and with the highest precision which means longer life span of the products.
5. Increase your productivity by using Sing door panels to replace stile and rail doors.
If you have a job with 10 different sizes and more than 40 doors which could easily jam up your production for days, if not for weeks, contact Sing Core. We could do it in less than 2 or 3 days and ship to you to add veneer, or add trim to make it look like stile and rail doors. Even the professional door maker could not tell the difference, but we guarantee your new type of veneer or stile and rail door will be stronger, lighter, and true flat. No other stile and rail door could perform like Sing Core. This is the reason Sing Core works with the most succesful high-end door manufacturers across the USA. 

Get Things Done Right the First Time

Millworks and door manufactures are rightfully wary about building and installing large or oversize wooden doors using traditional techniques. That’s why the top millworks in the country choose SingCore for challenging projects where they need to get things right the first time.

Guaranteed Warp-free for 50 Years

Here at SingCore we set the bar exceptionally high with a lengthy full structural guarantee that exceeds any other offered in the industry. This covers not only standard size door panels but oversize door panels exceeding 30′ in length.

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.

Strength of Sing Panel

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. Just look at this 13′ span, easily supporting the weight of a man without deflection at only 1″ thick. By including Sing Core in your next project, you may for the first time have complete confidence that your oversize door installation will stand the test of time, with no complaints from your clients.

The SingCore factory, located in the pristine forests of the Pacific Northwest, also builds posts and beams for use in other types of construction applications. They are just as lightweight and strong, if not stronger, than SingCore doors. Our specialty is devising a way to make your next project in to a success, no mater what it takes

Lightweight of Sing Panel

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.

Finish to Match Any Style

SingCore offers a huge variety of skin materials, that allows you to achieve any design goal or match any existing element to perfection. Our specialty is in door panels, no 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.

  • Veneer, any species
  • Wood stave, any species
  • Metal – cold rolled steel, hot rolled steel, aluminum, copper, other
