Aerospace Technology Torsion Box Panels

Sing Core is providing new, space age solutions to old technologies that have been used in transportation industries for years.

sing-core-used-in-aerospace-international-aircraft-lightweight-high-strength-tru-flatYou might be as surprised, as much as we are, to find that many leading-edge technologically advanced transportation manufacturers who build the most high-tech aircraft, boat and train vehicles and containers often use old technology in the ground support of the manufacturing process.

Industry-wide, aerospace, marine, mass transit, rail and trucking industries are now starting to upgrade ground support systems for their manufacturing process that has not been updated since the late sixties.

Temporary Floor Upgrade

For instance, while building a large project, temporary floors are used during the manufacturing process. In many cases, these floor s need to support the weight of carts, instruments and heavy equipment as well as bear the weight of the heavy trafficking construction crews without fail.

The traditional method dictated that plywood (often metal clad) would be cut in the exact shape and size of actual flooring that would be installed following the manufacture. This temporary flooring system has been used for years, and though it has become customary to use it, it is simply not as practical as using an advanced system like Sing Core’s.

The Sing Core temporary flooring system is a new advancement for these industries increasing ground support exponentially, by delivering, custom-sized flooring panels that are exactly the same dimensions as final finished flooring, yet have the following attributes:

  • Are true flat with minimal deflection even under weight bearing loads
  • Lightweight, reducing labor and transportation costs of assembly and disassembly
  • Designed to withstand regular vehicular weight, movement and stress
  • Last longer, reducing repair/replacement

Regular Maintenance or Periodic Overhaul

Whether your application is in the original manufacturing process or for regular aviation maintenance checks and periodic overhaul, Sing Core temporary floor system will provide maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) shops with the lightweight, high strength, superior solution for your next D check heavy maintenace visit (HMV).

Fewer on the Job Injuries

prevent-slip-trip-and-fall-accidents-with-sing-temporary-flooring-solutionsAccording tot he U.S. Department of Labor Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) slips, trips, and falls constitute the majority of general industry accidents and 15% of these lead to accidental deaths. Avoid the hazardous employee or contractor exposure by upgrading your existing temporary floor solution to the more effective Sing temporary floor solution.

Traditional plywood temporary floor treatments are less effective and potentially dangerous in comparison and may actually contribute to more potential on the job injuries. Plywood is heavy and difficult to maneuver, transport and breaks down over time becoming frayed and causing exposed slivers which could lead to compounding injuries during installation and removal.

Protect your staff with sing temporary floors. Sing temporary flooring can support high-traffic, weight and heavy construction activity without fail with high PSI (independently tested at the University of Washington at 660 PSI) and little deflection over long spans (as little as 1/32, or more) for a more secure working environment preventing risk. And handling Sing temporary flooring prevents injury during installation, dismantle and transport due to being much lighter weight when compared to other materials and does not easily breakdown over time, like plywood which is heavy and not as strong (even if aluminum-clad).

Sing temporary floor solution is an effective way to protect construction and maintenance workers who are working in large aircraft, sea vessels, ship yards, marine terminals, construction sites, stairwells, rail cars, elevators or skylights to avoid injury due to worker slip and fall or protection from falling equipment or debris.

Temporary Food Service Floor

Other temporary floor uses include temporary food service flooring used in mobile or seasonal eateries, restricted menu establishments, bed and breakfast kitchens and food service caterers.

Foam Core Alternative

Foam-Panel-Interior-Structural-Torsion-Box-Sing-Core-RevealedSing Core melds the best of two worlds, the lightweight scientific development and the best of nature’s natural resources into Eco-friendly high-tech, space-age advanced composites.

Foam core panels have served the building and construction community well, helping address the issues of weight in large projects. Used as a substrate, foam core panels are lightweight and somewhat rigid and can be glued to a variety of materials to strengthen or give it a more strong appearance.

To increase the strength of foam core you must increase the density, which increases both the weight and price of the lightweight core and is not good for our environment.

Enter inventor Peter sing’s new invention: Sing Core. The revolutionary new material that takes the positive attributes of foam core material combines it with the best of nature and high-end traditional woodworking craftsmanship, to reveal a spectacular hybrid.

styrofoam-panels-lightweight-no-strengthUsing the science behind foam materials, the repurposed natural wood grain from nature and the best of woodworking craftsmanship, Sing Core is the most significant improvement in the building and construction trades in the last decade.

While traditional torsion box interior has been an effective woodcraftsman’s solution for centuries, it was reserved only for extremely high-end applications, due to the intense labor of building the torsion boxes used in the inner structure. By combining the strength of torsion box and filling the voids that would normally only be filled with air with recycled foam Sing Core raises the bar on being extremely lightweight and super-strong

Foam cores used in aerospace engineering have low compression strengths, yet Sing Core tests out at 660 PSI (and can be increased to meet your specifications), that is stronger than steel pound for pound (even bullet proof doors don’t test that high). Due to its unique design, Sing Core is much stronger when compared to other materials.

Sing Core is so much more affordable than custom woodwork because this patented technology can generate high-performance torsion box inexpensively and efficiently, especially if you are considering incorporating it as a lightweight substrate material for a large project, like a door, a table top, conference table, etc… See more applications.

Sing Core can use a wide variety of foam materials to meet your most demanding specifications including (but not limited to) polyurethane, polystyrene and styrofoam. Upgrading to closed-cell foam, makes Sing Core a perfect match for marine applications, like decking materials.

Sing Core Compared to Foam Core:
