In case you didn’t already know, it’s important to know how and why pivot doors fail.
Is your Pivot Door Likely to Fail?
Most pivot doors will fail doe to either the pivot door warping, or delaminating (structure). A composite pivot door (anything other than a heavy solid slab of flat material) will fail due to stress or environmental conditions. Any undue stress or strain on your pivot door, i.e. regular use straining both the hardware and the supporting structure (causing increased maintenance over time) or exposure due to unforeseen circumstances (like accident or abuse) may cause the door to fail or delaminate in response to impact.

Large Pivot Doors Are Prone to Failure
The Architectural Woodwork Institute issues and maintains minim requirements for warping doors which allows for up to ¼ inch of deflection or door warp over a 7 ft. span. Knowing that all doors warp, is helpful when reviewing your expectations in regards to pivot door warping. A warped door seven feet tall is likely to warp up to ¼ of an inch regularly, which is allowable in door warranties.

Exterior Pivot Doors Are Prone to Failure
Exterior pivot doors have a higher risk of failure due to door warp because one side (the inside) of the pivot door faces a temperature controlled interior space while the other side is exposed to the elements which cases the pivot door to move (warp, bend, twist, cup) resulting in pivot door failure. If a pivot door cannot freely swing or seal due to being warped, the may not be able to latch or operate as a door due to air leaks around the pivot door.

We Do Not Have Pivot Doors for Sale
We do not have pivot doors for sale, because we do not make pivot doors. Our pivot door blanks are used by door manufacturers and millworks to build the best pivot doors. Our patented Sing Core is the only high precision pivot door blank material that can be guaranteed not warp or fail for 50 years.
You can have the best pivot door with the best 50 year pivot door guarantee just by contacting your favorite millwork, custom door manufacturer or door company and tell them what pivot door you want and ask for, “Sing Core inside.”
That’s what we do. We work with the best pivot door manufacturers to make the best pivot doors that have the best pivot door guarantee for 50 years, because your pivot doors have premium Sing Core inside.
That’s why the best contemporary architecture design specifies, “Sing Core inside,” in the most important high end projects, especially when there are large pivot doors requiring high performance expectations over time.
How to determine if Your Pivot Door is the Best of the Best?
See the minimum warp allowances for pivot doors below. Pivot doors made of patented Sing Core far exceed the warp resistance allowed by AWI standards. In fact, one of the largest high end door manufacturer comments, “We have not had a single door fail since we started using Sing Core door blanks.”
All the latest multi-million dollar homes are using large pivot doors in their contemporary architecture design. Please inquire with your favorite trade professional as to which pivot doors can be guaranteed to remain warp-free for more than one year. Patented premium Sing Core doors can be guaranteed to remain warp-free for 50 years.
Patented Sing Core is strong enough to withstand the impact of a sledge hammer without causing structural damage. See the unbreakable mirror test, which demonstrates a mirror backed by Sing Core which does not break under the direct impact of a 16 oz. hammer. Your high strength door with Sing Core inside will survive years of use and impact without distortion or structure failure. Patented premium Sing Core is fully structure guaranteed for 50 years.
Some of the largest pivot doors could weigh a ton in an attempt to obtain strength and warp resistance but not doors with Sing Core inside. Patented Sing Core weighs approximately 10% of solid wood, timber or plywood core. Products made with Sing Core are stronger than steel pound for pound. Lightweight pivot doors are safer for kids to operate, plus it costs less for hardware, transportation, handling and installation and will not sag after years of use.
The torsion box structure of patented Sing Core is responsibly and sustainably made using renewable vertical grain natural wood fiber which comes from nature, unlike other less strong core materials made of paper, aluminum or solid wood-based cores.
Patented Sing Core is packed with insulation which imbues the pivot door with qualities such as climate control and sound deadening characteristics, which is even used in bullet proof and impact doors. High R value and STC rated* insulation material is also a key component in the solid composite substrate which helps to achieve the high performance standards of Sing Core.
“It would have not been possible if not for Sing Core.”
The unique patented vertical grain torsion box/insulation-packed composite substrate expands the possibilities of building materials, bringing the visions of architects and designers to life and is the only Eco-friendly product known with such lightweight (10% the weight of solid wood) high strength (660 PSI) ability to span long distances with little or no deflection, even under stress and strain over a long life of heavy use.
Ask your favorite architect, millwork or custom door manufacturer about Sing Core.
* Note: STC rating varies according to size, thickness, skin, and other factors. Sing Core does not rate doors, although we are fortunate enough to have one of the best sound testing labs in the world, here in the Pacific Northwest. If you require a specific STC rating, Sing Core can build a door to your architectural specifications and have the resulting door tested at our rating facility for an official rating.
