Lightweight High Strength Eco Friendly Metal Pivot Doors

Pivot Door Line DrawingLightweight High Strength Eco Friendly Metal Pivot Doors

When professionals seek out extraordinary, unique and/or oversized modern steel doors the most conscientious purveyors settle on a Sing Core metal pivot door.

While exquisitely masterful in their design, modern metal pivot doors present many challenges.  The first challenge to overcome is that of excess weight. Due to the size of the door – if it is constructed simply of metal – the door is just not practical due to its excessive weight.

Contemporary modern steel doors are available in many colorsWhat you want is an

Extraordinary metal pivot door with a unique, bold and striking appearance

(see samples of contemporary metal pivot door finishes to the right…)

That has these characteristics:

  • Lightweight
  • High strength
  • Eco-friendly
  • Affordable

To combat this challenge door manufacturers seek out composite materials to incorporate into the design of the metal pivot door to deal with the heaviness of the door that causes a strain on the structural integrity of the frame, the hardware and project overall.

Solid steel pivot doors, while impressive, are just not practical, yet engineers have found ways to circumvent the obstacles in an effort to retain the appearance of being a solid steel pivot door.

Modern steel pivot door finish exampleThe next challenge to overcome is that of strength. By compromising the metal pivot door’s integrity by not being constructed of solid metal, other cores are considered to reduce the weight of the metal pivot door.

Normal alterations include, using a lesser-strength metal core. Using a metal tube substrate or honeycomb core will match the structure of the metal door, but compromises the overall strength, while resulting in a metal pivot door that is still extremely overweight.

Engineers in search of a more lightweight solution, then consider composite materials to fill the core of your metal pivot door. These include natural solutions, like wood, or manufactured solutions, like foam. While wood products are an option, if solid, are still too heavy to result in a lighter weight solution, and still cannot compare to the strength of a solid steel door. And though foam is lightweight, it simply has no structural integrity and fails the test of strength altogether. Also, over time, these core components tend to lose their integrity, and rarely (if ever) produce an end product that is true flat.

Another consideration is that of excessive energy and harm to the environment expended in the creation of your metal pivot door. The process of creating a metal pivot door with metal interior components requires a lot of wasted energy consumption and highly-skilled laborers (welders) that not only makes the door non-eco-friendly, but results in a very expensive end product.

Beautiful red hot metal pivot door finishSing Core can host any metal material, like stainless steel, iron, copper or aluminum and is the solution for all these considerations, providing the designer, contractor and end-user with all these benefits, and more…

Sing Core, when used as the substrate of your metal pivot door will not compromise the exterior metal beauty and magnificence of your door, which is the primary concern of this exciting, bold design choice.

LIGHTWEIGHT, HIGH-STRENGTH & TRUE FLAT

Sing Core is extremely lightweight, yet stronger than steel over any given spans and is the primary reason why it is selected over other types of composite core materials by high-end users; solving both the challenges of lightweight and high strength. It also creates a surface that is true flat, and retains its flatness over time. Every Sing Core metal pivot door comes with a 10 year warranty.

ECO-FRIENDLY, MADE IN THE USA

Sing Core is also eco-friendly. As Sing Core is manufactured, the process uses very little energy, utilizes renewable materials and produces little or no waste. Sing Core is also proudly manufactured in the USA.

Sing Core is economical to use. Using less-skilled labor to create Sing Core makes it an affordable option. Not to mention the reduction in costs of hardware and installation.

Don’t we all want a beautiful metal pivot door that is a bold design feature revered in modern architectural circles?

Shouldn’t yours be lightweight, have high strength and be earth-friendly?

Certainly, we would expect to pay more for this technology, but Sing Core is so affordable, think of what more good you could do for the world by saving costs of production and installation, let alone your bottom line.

Sing Core’s lightweight, high strength, eco-friendly metal pivot doors are the unequivocal answer for the discriminating modern pivot door designers today.

Sing Core Partners with Architects and Designers for a Better World

singcore-architects-designersLightweight does not mean weak, heavy does not mean strong; just as low cost does not mean inferior. If you are searching for lightweight panel, post and beam in wood, metal, cement board, FPR or plastic for your building design project. Newly Patented Sing core is changing the public’s previous knowledge about lightweight honeycomb sandwich material. Sing core is the only material used in such a wide range of industries and it has endless applications.

Sing Core’s mission is to provide superior eco-friendly product to architects who have share a common goal with Sing product to build a better World creating a healthier, green planet, benefiting all creatures and life forms for extended sustainability for the future.

Sing Core is Eco-Friendly

Sing Core is manufactured with less, energy consumed, using earth-friendly renewable veneers. No formaldehyde is used in the adhesives between the structural and sandwich facings to ensure a true green end-product.

Sing Core is Lightweight

Sing Aluminum3Sing Core is extremely lightweight. Though traditional honeycomb panels and products have been effectively used in your designs, patented Sing Core weight is approximately 4-6 lbs per cubic foot. No other core or sandwich material can lay claim to the lightweight advantages of patented Sing Core.

Sing Core is Strong

Traditional aluminum, paper and/or plastic honeycomb core cell size is commonly 3/8 inch to ¾ inch.  The average compression strength are 10 to 100 psi; but the smallest Sing Core grid is 2 inch x 2 inch which when tested at the University of Washington reached 660 psi. for Sing Core’s honeycomb core.

The height of Sing Core could be 6 inches or more and still has superior strength but the average height of traditional cores are limited to mostly within one inch because the taller the core, the less compression strength. That is why you never see aluminum core in a 6 inch thickness, because they fail structurally. Sing Core maintains its strength and integrity in thickness of 6 inches or more. Sing Core is redefining, “lightweight and strong.”

Sing Core’s Unlimited Applications

Sing Core panels are available in thicknesses as little as 1/8”and as thick as 8 inches in lengths of 50 feet or longer, in aluminum, plywood, even cement bprad or ceramic tile or fiberglass  or any other facing. Sing Core beams have superior structural integrity and can be 20 x 12 inches thick and 50 feet long (or more).

sing-core-made-in-the-usaSing Core is Made in the USA

100% of Sing Core is proudly manufactured in the USA, using local labor supporting our community. Though Sing Core is also proud to be exported to other countries with green building agendas, our hope is to provide American jobs, supporting the American economy while making America greener and more sustainable, ensuring a bright future for generations to follow.

10 Year Warranty

Sing Core exceeds current code requirements. For example, in the door industry, AWI’s guidelines dictate that a door should be less than ¼ inch flatness. Sing Core routinely builds doors that are over 10 ft or longer in length, yet staying within those 7 ft doors code requirements. Doors made of Sing Core provide 10 years of structure warranty. As a common practice in door industry, most manufacturers offer only a one year warranty.

Products made with patented Sing Core can be easily repaired without compromising it’s original strength, due to the structure of Sing Core and the bonded stress skin which when compared to solid wood and other types of solid materials would pose a significant challenge.
