Here at Sing Core, we’re proud to be providing the Custom Sing Panel to the high end architects, millworks, designers, engineers, and contractors around the world. It is our sincere desire to see Sing Panel in use in all American industries and applications.
A Sing Panel has Sing Core inside and solid or closed edges. Enclosing and encapsulating patented Sing Core can take on a variety of forms depending on specifications, function, the useful purpose and high performance standards of your application. Many different options are available and there are no hard-and-fast rules. Or Sing Core true flat experts will be able to assist you in having the performance and connectivity options that you (or your clients) seek, meeting and likely exceeding expectations.
Edge-banding can take on many different forms. The first method, as when working with a standard Sing Sandwich with plywood surface, would be to use a similar strip of wood to match the surface material cut to the thickness of the panel, then gluing the strop to the exposed area and finish the edges to your specifications. You may use a material that does not match the surface as edge-banding materials are readily available in almost any material including nylon, plastic, aluminum and other composite materials.

You can use any solid material cut to size for interior blocking to seal the edge of your Sing Panel. In most cases, this is a slender piece of wood that can be used not only as an edge but for purposes of connecting hardware (perfect for using cam locks) or joining to other panels. The default material is a 1.5 inch solid wood edge that is evenly flush with the edges of the surface material.
T Slot Panel
Adding T Slot stiles and/or rails to our patent-pending T Slot Panel is one of the most high precision methods used by our most exclusive industrial clients that enhances all the attributes of Sing Panels without compromising the most precise connection methods while taking advantage of all the readily available hardware options offered by the growing T slot industry.
The U channel is an effective manner of closing the edge of a Sing Panel and it can be used in three alternative fashions depending on your intended application of your Sing Panel. Having three closed sides and one open side, the U Channel could be made of any material, like wood, plastic, aluminum, etc… and it can be embedded and pre-bonded into place when the panel is manufactured in any one of these ways.
1 End Cap Closure
Embedding the U cannel to the exterior of the exposed edge seals the edge nicely. While this is quite common it is the method that leaves a slight lip that may or may not affect the end product. The other U channel methods leave smooth edges without a ridge.
2 Embedded Open Cavity
Useful in many high tech designs, the embedded U channel with the cavity exposed can be elegant and useful when integrating your Sing Panel into your design. Possibilities about with the exposed cavity for running utilities, adding hardware, using as a track over rollers, and joining panels.
3 Embedded Closed Cavity
For a sleek, smooth effect using an embedded U channel, embedded inside with the closed edge exposed is an excellent way to use your U channel. Certain advantages come with using this method, especially if your U channel is made of aluminum or steel for machining, etc…
Embedded Aluminum Square Tube
Like the embedded closed-cavity U channel, extruded aluminum tubes in a square format (closed on all four sides) can also be embedded in your Sing Panel offering extra reinforcement and connection options.
… And these are only some of the most popular ways of closing the edge of a Sing Panel.
