Sing Sandwich Panel

Sandwich Panel

torsion box, sandwich panel, honeycomb panel, lightweight panel

Standard sandwich panels utilize an insulating foam core sandwiched in between two thin sheets of hard material.  However, this design offers very little strength and durability. Sandwich panels made by Sing Core are stronger, lighter, and more eco-friendly than these conventional panels because we replace the standard foam core with our patented vertical grain, natural veneer torsion box grid also known as the Sing Core.  For the consumer, this translates into a higher quality product at a fraction of the cost.

(click to visit our product gallery)

Insulated doors made with traditional sandwich panels are highly susceptible to dents and structural damage because of their weak foam core.  Doors made with our Sing Core sandwich panel technology can withstand much higher impacts resulting in little or no damage due to our unique core properties.  The University of Washington has confirmed that our doors can withstand pressure of up to 660 psi, as compared to the average sandwich panel which can only withstand 60-100 psi.

How can Sing Core sandwich panels be used? Doors, shelving, table-tops, flooring, bookcases, furniture, outdoor decking material, truck/trailer beds even water tanks, to name a few. The possibilities are endless.

 

 

If you desire products that are lightweight, strong, durable, dimensionally stable, and eco-friendly, then you must try our Sing Core Sandwich Panels.  We like to demonstrate our confidence in the integrity of our products by offering our customers a 10 year structural guarantee.

Connecting Panels

How to Build Gallery

Connection Page

 

There are many ways to join Sing Panels

Simple Joining

The simplest and least expensive way to join sing panels is to join in any way according to your budget and/or expertise.

Due to Sing Panels being so straight and true it is easier to join panels together because they line up perfectly unlike other building materials.

 

sing-core-panel-cam-locks-3sing-core-panel-cam-locks-2In many cases, for instance, standard 4×8 panels can be nailed, glued or channel-joined quickly and easily with satisfactory results.

Other options for fastening panels may include cam locks (see examples left and right) that can be pre-installed, making assembly and joining easy and more secure.


The Sing cam-lock panel solution is a high-demand solution for panels that are routinely assembled and disassembled, especially in moveable walls, trade show booths, and various wall cladding applications. See: Cam Lock Panels

Connect multiple panels together in any configuration

Add lightweight high strength Sing modular shelves

Thru-bolt Joining

One of the most inexpensive and secure ways to join sing panels is by utilizing a simple nut and bolt connection method, especially, if the panels will be routinely or repeatedly assembled and disassembled.

Stainless steel nuts and bolts offer the safety and security when joining sing panels.

 

Biscuit Joining

In many cases, Sing Panels can be pre-configured for biscuit joining at your site of factory.

Especially for large projects, this enables Sing Core panels to be sent individually, reducing shipping and handling costs, for assembly at your facility or job site.

See images below for example of biscuit assembly of Sing Panels

Embedded T-Slot Extruded Aluminum

See: Sing T Slot Panels for more information.

Edge Banding

Unless specified Sing Panels do not ship edge-banded as 93% of our wholesale customers do their own edge-banding when finishing their Sing Panel.

Edge banding can take many forms from vinyl and plastic to wood and steel. Sing Panels are not intended for use as an un-banded product and may not qualify for our 50 year warranty if un-banded.

If your intention is to get the best, most long-lasting performance from your Sing Panels, feel free to take advantage of our free consultation to be guaranteed to achieve the results that you desire.

Edge Banding Options Include:

T Molding

Advanced Large Panels

Sing Core specializes in extremely large panels (up to 50 feet) that are extremely true flat and use our nearly seamless assembly process.

This is the most high-end and expensive process where we perform the highly specialized meticulous work in our factory yielding the high level of perfection that many of our most discerning clients require. See: our clients.

These must be manufactured in our plant to ensure accuracy with tolerances within thousandths of an inch and are more costly to ship due to the nature of their being larger than multiple panels that can be assembled on-site.

Connectors for Connecting

Cam-Locks

One of our many features is the ability to add fasteners/locks to our panels…one example of this is the “S-Hook Lock” with a turn of the hex wrench you can fasten or unfasten your panels quickly.

The “S-Hook” fastening lock that is attached to the side of these panels to allow for easy assembly of the wall system.

With a quick turn of your wrist on the hex key your panels will be attached to each other.

 

 

Barn Door Assembly or ‘H’ Channel

If you are planning to keep your panels as a permanent structure you may choose the H-Channel attachment feature. Apply your adhesive the slide panel into the channel on each side then either veneer over the panel and channel or you may choose to putty, sand and paint your panels to cover over the H-channel.

Tongue and Groove

Tongue and groove is another fastening choice especially if you using our panels for flooring or ceiling. Make a nice almost seamless connection but give wood veneer a hardwood flooring appearance.

Biscuit Joint

This is a modified biscuit joint attachment. Similar to the H-joint the you are using a single long “beam” as the connector and gluing them together. Best use is for oversize tables (such as vacuum tables) and oversize doors as well. Because our panels are made of honeycomb rather than solid wood, they will not warp. Our honeycomb is light and strong.

Ship Lap

The ever popular ship lap as a connector alternative.

What door companies do not want you to know.

torsion box animationAs long as you cannot see the paper core hide inside the door, they will not change it to Sing core. Sing core does not cost not much more than core made of paper but is at least 49 times stronger.

Punch through a Sing door and you will break your hand. If you can manage to punch through a Sing core punch-proof door and don’t break your hand then you will get a free sing door from us.

The most common doors used in most homes are paper core doors. With one punch you can destroy one of these flims doors. Once the door is broken you will need to take it to a door shop to get if fixed or replaced and then take it back and install it. The cost is not only a door, it is how to dispose of it, take it in and out of the shop, build or replace the door and install it. Why not just buy a Sing door to begin with. Sing doors are not much more expensive than paper core doors when consider the life span and they are free. What is your time worth?

Stronger than Steel,

Lighter than Wood

Your door doesn’t have to be steel to be strong. Sing Honeycomb Doors are stronger, lighter and more stylish than steel and vinyl doors due to the torsion box core.

Sing Doors are more stable, insulated and lightweight than solid wood doors. The torsion box core holds the Sing Door Panel flat so that it willnot warp and sag like ordinary wood. A 16lb steel hammer will easily dent a steel or vinyl door, but not a Sing Door. Because Sing panels are efficient to produce, they are more affordable than solid wood doors.

Patented Sing Door Methods

Sing Honeycomb doors are versatile, and customizable. Even the technoly used to construct the door can cater to our customers’ individual needs.

Sing Logs and Sandwich Panels are user friendly. They weigh less than a third as much as an equivalent slab of sheet rock, so you can easily and safely construction your home.

  • Fewer materials
  • Fewer steps
  • Lightweight

Strong and Stable

Sing Tiny Houses are structurally superior to traditional 2” x 6” framed structures because the glue we use for the sandwich panels covers the entire surface area and creates a stronger bond than nails ever could. This will save thousands of nails and over time will ensure the structural integrity of your Tiny House. Sing Honeycomb Panels have precision to within .007 of an inch. This means your Tiny House will be structurally sound and perfectly smooth. After years of expansion and contraction, nails settle, cracking your timber. The structural glue used with Sing Panels will not settle and cause warping over years. Help us to preserve the environment by using high quality, long lasting Sing Panels.

  • Resists dents and dings
  • Rigid and straight

“Learning about Sing Panels completely changed the way I look at building.”

— Celina Dill, Tiny House Blogger

See pictures at her blog and in our gallery.

Yes, Sing Core does make the best reinforced structural insulated panels (RSIP) for use in Tiny House applications as walls, floors, ceilings and roofs. We have a huge desire to support the tiny house industry but be aware that we only offer Sing Panels for tiny house construction to professional distribution channels. Since we offer no support for our products (besides what is readily available via our web site). Our operation is not setup to sell our products to people in need of retail customer service. We suggest that you seek answers to any questions about how to use Sing panels by consulting with your engineer, architect, builder or contractor.

Note: We do occasionally offer products direct to the do it yourselfer, like Tiny House panel Kits or Tiny House Surplus Panels. Though we may provide you with the materials, we offer no how-to support to the DIY enthusiast except that which is available via our Tiny House FAQ (frequently asked questions) and other online resources.
