Lightweight 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.
What 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:
- High strength
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.
The 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.
Sing 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.
