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.

New Doormaking Technology

If you Google Image Search honeycomb core door, lightweight core door or sing core door, you will see who the players are in this new generation of door manufacturing technology.

Sing Core is Available for All Door Manufacturers

Newly patented Sing Core has contacted over 100 of the best door manufacturers in the USA who could greatly benefit from Sing Core door production methods.

Interestingly, they all like the idea of Sing Core but hesitate to replace their current production models with this new technology. The Sing Stile and Rail method greatly reduces equipment and man-power costs, and you can produce higher quantities of high-end doors in less space.

By lowering your overhead cost and increasing your production capabilities, you are better positioned to compete with other door manufacturers in an effort to win back your market share (even enabling you to compete with imports).

Build High-end Doors for Less

With this new technology, you can press over 300 doors a day with a 2 or 3 person team.

Build Large Doors with Small Core

Email us and we will show you how to use 12 inch x 48 inch x 1.5 inch Sing Core to build a 14 ft tall, 5 ft wide door.

Build Stile and Rail and 6-panel Style Doors

By adding molding or trim over Sing Door Planks, then using CNC router to profile the design, the resulting door still weighs many times less than traditional doors with much greater strength.

Cut Out for Window/Glass Installation

Simply cut out the window light opening in the Sing Door Plank then add glass to your specifications, just as you would any other door.

Lock Block Installation

Pre-install solid wood blocks or implants for secure-points at desired locations prior to laying up the door per your specifications.

How High-end are Sing Core Doors?

Elegant and beautiful Sing Core Doors sell for as much as ten- to twenty-thousand dollars each.

How Strong is Sing Core?

An average door compression tests at as little as 10 PSI, compared to sing Core which tests at 660 PSI. No other door core compares.

What is the R-value of Sing Core?

R-value starts at 3 and goes up from there… Insulation is just one of the benefits of Sing Core which also provides strength support to the torsion box structure and sound deadening qualities. See architectural specs.

Increased Customer satisfaction

Customer and architect will appreciate your upgrade at lower cost. We structurally guarantee our doors for ten years, but they may have a life expectancy of hundreds of years.

Business Expansion

Besides door there are so many applications enabling your shop or factory to branch out to other channels instantly. See the varied applications of Sing Core.
