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

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:

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.

torsion box, sandwich panel, honeycomb panel, lightweight panel

Peter Sing- inventor and president of Sing Core- spent forty years of his life to create this new sandwich honeycomb panel technology and with hard work and great perseverance, he has succeeded in his goal. His next step for his company, is to spread the word out to everyone. Peter Sing believes that people are crazy for settling with heavy, non-versatile, and expensive plywood/particle board when they can use Sing Core’s lightweight, affordable, and reliable honeycomb panels.

Imagine being able to use a lightweight, strong, wooden honeycomb panel that allows you to create anything from basic furniture or large sliding door to an entire house that you live in. But Sing Core is cheaper and friendlier to the environment. Sounds too good to be true, but it’s not, because Sing Core Honeycomb Panels give you that advantage. This new and innovative style of honeycomb panel is so much more than lightweight, strong, and durable; it is long lasting, reliable, simple, and affordable.

Why use thick plywood- that can be difficult to construct with- when you can use the versatile Sing Core honeycomb panels. Through Sing Core, you will have the components to be able to build thousands of Sing Core products, with that eco friendly touch.

 

Pictured to the right is a 1 ton truck on a piece of 1/4″ inch thick Hardy Plank wrapped around our Honeycomb core. it does not crack under the pressure of a 1 ton truck. This is the future economical, concrete home structure. The picture is proof. Can you drive a 1 ton truck over a conventional frame home wall without it cracking??

 

 

Sing Core Honeycomb Panel description:

  • Strength– Is more than 10 times the strength of aluminum honeycomb core. A one inch by one inch grids aluminum core only has 60 psi; Sing Core 2”x 2” grids have reached more than 660 psi, the smallest core possesses more psi strength, but failed the test against Sing Core. Sing Core grid’s sizes range from 2 in x 1.5 inch to 5 in x 5 inch.
  • Sing Core with Application– Starts from 4 lbs. per cubic ft. and the larger the core grids, the lighter it weighs.
  • Dimensionally Stable– Doors made of Sing Core are guarantee to be true flat. Since we assure the flatness of Sing Core doors, our customers haven’t requested any refunds for their purchase. The most popular door that we manufacture are oversized doors (larger than 7 ft. x 3 ft.). We can do any custom size; the largest door/movable wall we sold was shipped to Bangkok, Thailand and was, 32 ft wide x 16 ft tall (four of them to divide a large conference room to several small conference rooms or a banquet hall).
  • Eco Friendly– Sing Core honeycomb panels are made of renewable veneer. The Sing Core panels take less energy to build a strong composite core, lightweight (which take less energy to transport), has longest life span, and it’s environmentally friendly (compare to other type of core such as paper honeycomb, aluminum honeycomb core, and plastic core).
  • Sing Panels- Come complete with solid wood edging, pvc edge, aluminum edge, or open edges.
  • Skin Choice- Several different skins: such as aluminum, FRP, cement, plastic, and wood. Sing Core products are suitable for indoors/outdoors, plus, our panels are waterproof because of the many different varieties of skin and close cell foam to keep the panels completely watertight. There are two types of wood based panels; paint grade and wood grain.
  • Thickness- Sing Core honeycomb panels come in any thickness from 1/2 in. to more than 8 in. size of Sing panels;The largest door/movable wall we build are 32 ft wide x 16 ft in length (It weighs less than 800 lbs App. 1.5 lb per sq ft),With our patented Sing core biscuit layin under each join  which keep the Sing large oversize panel true dimensionally stable without any movement due the the temperature and moisture change (We offer a 10 year structural guarantee) paint grade.

Multiple Sing Panels can be joined together by a variety of methods to create entire structures or large multi-panel projects on-site using a variety of fastening options.

Galvanized steel equipment enclosures

Sing Core Panels are typically Paint Grade- Produced ready to finish by consumers and businesses. Panels are paint grade, not paint ready, which means that the customer may have to putty, sand and prime before painting.

Custom Choices for Wood Grain- There are paint grades, wood grains skin for Sing panel finish treatment, and there are two type of wood grain Sing panel available. Option 1 is veneer/staves and option 2 is strips/planks. Sing plywood skinned panels are used to build doors, floors, walls, table tops, and roofs; It’s the least expensive and the natural plywood has a thin layer of wood veneer on the surface (the advantages are very affordable, can be stained/ shows beautiful wood, difficult to sand, repair, and has tiny join if it is over 4 ft x 8 ft size).

Two Types of Wood Grain- Sing plank- The 1st type is plywood type of wood skin which uses 1/8 inch wood stave of any kind of wood species, pressed on the top of Sing core panel(advantage: wood stave Sing panel can be sand,repair,like solid wood due to the thicker wood surface).click here to see picture. The 2nd type, is Sing wood grain panel glued to the  natural wood stave slice solid wood to 1/8 inch thick then glue on top of Sing torsion box long panel. Sing true wood planks normally range from 7 in. to 10 in., wide x 8 ft. or 10 ft. in length x 1 1/2 inch thick which look more true flat than real solid wood (click here to see pictures), than glued edges. Sing wood planks can form a large oversize door, table, or wood plank. Sing Core panels could be made at any size and thickness. Sing wood planks are light weight, true flat, fully insulated, and sound deadening than solid wood. Sing Core panels look and function better than solid wood which will warp and shrink. (it would be impossible to join solid wood planks to build doors as large as 10 ft wide x 12 ft or larger). See picture of Sing Core Flooring. Natural planks provide beautiful wood and Sing wood panel invention will make it even more beautiful and function better.
