Exterior Door Blanks

Singcoretabletop Patented SingCore makes the best exterior door blanks in the United States of America. Architects, designers, contractors, millworks and door companies come to SingCore for exterior door blanks that outperform other door blanks used in exterior doors.

Why SingCore Exterior Door Blanks?

The answer is

If you want the best exterior door
Start with the best exterior door core

insulated exterior bi fold warp free door blanks stringer than steelSingCore exterior door blanks are the only door substrate with SingCore inside. Exterior doors of any size with SingCore inside are lightweight, high strength, insulated exterior doors that can be made with any door skin material, including outdoor wooden doors that can be guaranteed not to warp, bend, twist or otherwise fail for fifty years.

Oversized Entry Doors

When it comes to large oversized doors, Sing door blanks help high end millworks and door companies to supply their clients with the biggest doors with full confidence of providing a oversized exterior that will not fail. Until SingCore exterior door blanks, the common response of door manufacturers was

We don’t build oversized doors

Lightweight high strength reclaimed cedar carriage doorsLarge doors were any door over seven feet tall or three-and-a-half feet wide. Why? Because they warp; but if they were built not to warp they would be too heavy, causing regular maintenance calls for hardware repair and the heavy door caused extra stress and strain on the both the structure and the frame. Either way, big doors were a headache for both the door company and the end user.

When using Sing exterior door blanks, any exterior doors – even exterior wood doors – can be guaranteed not to fail for 50 years.

Outdoor Wooden Doors

A wood exterior door is problematic due to the nature of the wood grain itself. The grain will either expand or contract due to changes in the environment and change in temperature or moisture will cause the wood to move this way or that. Moving or warping exterior wood doors compromise the door seal, and could prevent the exterior door from latching properly, or in extreme cases, closing at all.

Door Skin

Patented SingCore can host any exterior door skin material – not just solid wood stave – a welcomed feature to any designer or full service custom door builder. Sind you are not limited to wood door skin panels, your doors can be made of any flat building material, such as aluminum, cold rolled steel, concrete, copper, fiberglass/FRP, galvanized steel, hot rolled steel, HPL, Kevlar, LVL, metal or stainless steel, just to name a few.

Of course, now you can make doors of any available natural wood species warp-free with SingCore inside.

Insulated Exterior Doors

Another unique feature and added benefit of having SingCore inside your oversized entry doors is being able to enjoy having insulated exterior doors which means better energy savings and climate control. Also, because Sing exterior door blanks are packed wall to wall with rigid insulation as part of the torsion box composite solid door blank adding sound dampening qualities for added safety and security at no extra charge; all part of the design.

Sing exterior door blanks are a solid core door material made of natural vertical wood grain torsion box/foam composite yielding exceptional displays of strength with unparalleled resistance to deflection and warping. SingCore is so strong, that it was rated at over 660 PSI when independently tested by the University of Washington. That’s stronger than steel, pound for pound.

The inventor says, “Kick any other door and you break the door. Kick a Sing door and break your leg.”

Don’t break a leg, but do specify “SingCore inside,” when you want the best exterior door of any size that is insulated, lightweight, high strength and can be guaranteed for a full fifty years.

Solid Wood Stave Door Blanks

Our panels make doors!

Patented Sing Core solid wood stave door blanks feature the newest technology in the door industry for composite doors yielding the only eco-friendly, lightweight, fully insulated, high-strength doors with wood blanks of any size (up to 40 ft.) that can be guaranteed true flat and to stay flat for 50 years.

Large door versus regular-size door challenge (i.e., over 4 feet wide and over 8 feet in length):

Large doors are heavy, dimensionally unstable, require more strength due to the heavy weight, and are a challenge to manufacture, ship and install.  High-end jobs require precision and true flatness to please the customer.  A homeowner’s architect, general contractor and mill worker must solve the problem of warping doors.  The solution to the challenge is to use patented professional true flat Sing panels to make your doors.

Sing Core wood stave door planks are the only solid wood doors that will not warp, bend, twist or cup following installation.  This means no more continuous service calls for maintenance of big doors that cannot possibly stay straight due to the limitations of solid wood – or any other door core – that is subject to failure.  Sing panels have a patented honeycomb/torsion box interior which gives lightweight yet unsurpassed strength (pound-per-pound stronger than steel) and stability to any door, and allows Sing Core to provide a 50-year guarantee

Interior Doors:

Sing panels make amazing designer doors in any style.  With Sing panels, fragile doors such as French doors are made lightweight yet strong, not warping or breaking hinges, which will last for many decades.

Exterior Doors:

Sing panels make sturdy exterior doors in any style.  With Sing panels, exterior doors are lightweight and strong, even when oversized.  Our professional doors are guaranteed to stay true flat and not warp or twist for 50 years

When is a door not a door? When it fails to function as a door.

The problem is that all door core materials are either not high precision, too heavy or will move when exposed to moisture, humidity or change in temperature resulting in door failure.

Heavy solid metal or steel will not warp, bend or twist, but is not high precision due to welding (sing core tolerance is + or –  .006 inch!) and is often impractical due to the overweight issues causing excess strain on both the hardware and structure, causing continued maintenance issues.  The solution is our patented lightweight yet strong Sing core technology.

Finishing a door blank:

There are two types of finish for door blanks:  paint grade and wood grain.  Paint grade includes such finishes as metal, Masonite, marine plywood, etc.  Wood grain finish includes such finish as solid wood stave and thin veneer.

Why Use Solid Wood Instead of Veneer?

solid wood composite door planks any size thickness true flatNever settle for substandard veneer doors again. Door engineers prefer to use inexpensive veneer as opposed to real solid wood facings because veneer is thought to be less likely to warp, bend or twist.  But thanks to the super-strength of patented Sing Core technology, you can use solid wood stave and wood blanks with confidence knowing that your door can be guaranteed true flat and will stay flat.

How can a solid wood-faced door stay true flat? As every woodworker knows, when using a solid wood surface, the grain will move according to moisture or temperature change causing the door to fail. When using our patented Sing Core as a substrate you can safely use solid wood because the solid torsion box/honeycomb patented material is continually keeping the wood grain straight and true.  Whereas wood stave has more wood fiber giving it more of a chance to warp than thin veneer due to the unbalance of the both side of the door moisture contents, patented Sing technology solves this problem by combining stiffing skin on both side of our patented Sing core.  This Sing panel technology eliminates the troublesome movement of the door blank — warping is no longer a concern when wood stave is combined with patented Sing core.

In addition, solid wood is easy to work with, install (no need to hot press), repair and remodel.  That’s why professionals trust Sing Core’s years of expertise in helping to design the only wood stave doors (that look just like solid wood doors) that can stay straight and true for many decades while respectfully honoring the beauty and elegance of solid wood, which far outlasts easily-damaged veneers, yet can be sanded and repaired if necessary.

Celebrate your real wood!

solid wood stave door planks lightweight honeycomb guaranteed 50 yearsOur Eco-friendly lightweight, high strength alternative is the best   solution for combating the issues associated with weight and size,   especially large doors.  Only our patented Sing torsion box/foam   composite core combined with our years of experience provides   guaranteed solutions for oversize doors.

That’s why this technology is found everywhere, from beneath the sea   (US Navy) to outer space (NASA) and everywhere in-between.

Sing panels may be finished in almost any wood species, like   mahogany, redwood, teak wood, cherry wood, walnut wood, cedar   wood, Ipe wood, sapele wood, poplar wood, ebony wood, ash wood,   oak or any other hardwood or exotic wood types available.

This same wood blank composite technology is also a common solution for high-end projects like engineered hardwood flooring, shiplap, wood furniture, wood shelves, decking, shed doors or any other application demanding high precision and exemplary performance over time.

How is wood stave/veneer added to Sing panels?

Wood stave is added directly to the metal or wood skin our patented Sing cores.  Wood veneer is added to an 1/8-inch mdf attached to the metal skin.  Call us for a free consultation on the best option for your project.
