Post & Beam

Sing Post & Beam Core

Sing Core is a veneer torsion box embedded in EPS foam. You can finish Sing Core with any load bearing facial material. In our core, we use the strongest material in the strongest form: vertical grain veneer! Our grid is stronger than other honeycomb sandwich cores because the veneer is arranged with the grain perpendicular to the skin.

Sing Post & Beam

Sing Posts and Beams are actually Sing Panels of a specific size and shape to be used as posts and beams, while outperforming other traditional post and beam materials. Sing posts and beams come complete with solid wood edging sandwiched in between the exterior skins. Sing Posts and Beams are ready to distribute to consumers and businesses. Sing Posts and Beams are ready to be stained or painted depending on order type. Just assemble, prepare, paint and enjoy.

Super Strength

Sing Posts and Beams are far superior in strength than other solid materials and true flat.

Lightweight: Honeycomb Core sandwich construction is used mostly in aviation. Our core can make panels weigh as little as 30% as much as solid wood posts and beams. Sing Posts and Beams are so lightweight, in fact, that a 16 foot beam could be easily carried by one person. Must lighter weight than solid wood, concrete or compressed plastic.Exterior: Do not use pressure treated lumber which is not eco-friendly… Consider Sing Aluminum Posts and Beams, which are impervious to extreme weather and remain straight and true flat over time.Go to our Price and Order page to use our weight estimation calculator.

Insulation: Sing Core has built-in insulation value with an R3 to R6.5 rating per inch, depending on client’s needs/specifications.

Sound deadening: Sing Core’s filler material has natural sound-deadening properties. Other sound-deadening options are available at customer request.

Light weight: When compared to other materials Sing Core weighs much less, as much as 50% less, or more, as little as 4 lbs. per sq. ft. yet eco-friendly. This advanced technology used in the aviation industry is now available for use in your home.

Strength: Sing Core based on 2″ x 2″ grids and 3/4″ thick = 660 PSI. For instance, aluminum 3/8″ grids = 30+ PSI (smaller grids should be more strength). Sing Core’s superior strength comes from its advanced torsion box design.

Solid: Sing Core is solid like a rock. While the vertical wood grain torsion box core may be compared to other hollow honeycomb cores, the Sing Core voids are not hollow as they are bonded wall-to-wall and filled with recycled foam for a strong, solid substrate.

Eco-friendly: Sing Core is manufactured using natural wood fibers, no formaldehyde, or toxic chemicals, is created using less energy than any other core material with little or no waste.

Renewable: The structure of Sing Core is 100% renewable (nature-grown) clean fiber and/or recycled material.

Oversize: Sing Core excels in area of large oversize products due to its unique properties and can be up to 50 foot length.

Dimensionally stable: Sing Core is the most dimensionally stable building material allowing us to create large, oversize products (i.e., doors, up to 50 ft.) that are true flat exceeding AWI standards and can be guaranteed to be true flat. Large oversize panels can be truly dimensionally stable without any movement due to temperature and moisture change.

Affordable: Even though Sing Core technology is used in high-end applications, we make it affordable for broad use in a large number of applications. Sing Core performance is comparable to any high-end core but could be as little cost as low-end wood product core.

Waterproof upgrade: Sing Core is available in waterproof upgrade, to accommodate your specific water resistant requirements.

Fire retardant upgrade: When used in fire retardant applications, the Sing Core fire retardant door is the lightweight, super-strong, eco-friendly alternative.

Bullet-proof upgrade: In high-security end products, most cores used in bullet-proof applications are heavy in weight, causing strain on the infrastructure, unlike Sing Core.

Thickness available: Sing Core is readily available in many thicknesses, up to 6 inches in standard thickness, with custom thicknesses available.

Skin options: Available in many different exteriors including (but not limited to) aluminum, cement board, cold roll steel, concrete, ceramic tile, fiber glass, galvanize metal, glass, MDF, metal, plastic, plywood, solid wood, stainless steel, etc…

Easy to machine: Sing Core is easy to work with in the shop or on-site for sawing, sanding, adding solid wood implants, gluing, cutting and fastening.

Fast turnaround: In you’re in a rush, only Sing Core can be custom made within 24 hours and is proudly manufactured for you in the USA.

Sing Posts and Beams made from Sing Composite materials are the most strong, lightweight, eco-friendly posts and beams in the world. Sing Posts and Beams are revolutionizing the building materials industry while makeing the world a better place.

Solid post and beam materials like wood, wood laminate, concrete, steel and compressed plastic is just too heavy to make construction and maintenance affordable, yet these same exterior material can be combined with Sing Composite materials for a superior structural material that is true flat, is resistant to warp, twist and rot.

Post and Beam Technical Properties

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERAInsulation value: The R-Value of Sing Honeycomb Core is 3.5-6.5, whereas that of solid wood ranges from .71-1.4.

Strength: Vertical grain veneer enables a 2”x4’x8’ Sing panel to withstand up to 600 lbs.

Precision: Torsion Box structure is no longer a dream for the highly trained craftsman. Our endless I beam construction keeps the surface of our panels flatter than solid wood (within .007in!).

Fire Resistance: Level 2

Acclimatization:
Sing Honeycomb Panels acclimatizing; according to the type of the skin. Aluminum, metal, plastic skin, concrete, and ceramic skin will be delivered in perfectly straight condition without any acclimatizing, plywood, hardboard, and hpl because it will take much less time to acclimatize than mdf. The best way to acclimatize is stand panels on edge with 4” or more of equal spacing between each panel.

Engineering:
Sing Core posts and beams may not be registered for structural use in your area. It is your responsibility to get the appropriate engineering or architectural stamp of approval that is appropriate for your local area code. In most cases you need to have a licensed engineer sign off on the plans and show that they comply with the requirements of the codes in your location.

 

 

Versatility

Remember, Sing Core technology is completely customizable to your specifications as they are available in any length, any width and any thickness and bonded to any exterior finish.

We are so certain that Sing Core is the solution to your green building challenges that we offer a 100% refund for any prototype order, for those who want to test drive any form of Sing Core products for use in their applications, so you have nothing to lose.
