How Does the Sing OEM Process Work?
Establishing the Need of Sing Core
There are many reasons that door manufacturers seek out patented Sing Core as their OEM door substrate; some of the most popular ones are:
Some door manufacturers are looking for ways to distinguish themselves from other door manufacturers. They seek out an OEM relationship with Sing Core to design and build an ultra premium line of doors that have unique characteristics that cannot be found by using any other door substrate material.
Many door manufacturers have problems with large doors (especially over 7 ft. tall) in that while they look magnificent upon installation, dealing with door warp on a regular basis is a constant maintenance cost associated with big doors.
This is where Sing Core door substrates shine because the substructure of the core itself is a combination of wood torsion box (using vertical grain matrix framing) filled with recycled rigid foam creates a lightweight, high strength solid substrate that will retain its original shape and structural integrity over time; higher precision and lasts longer than any other known door building material.
That’s why more and more, you are finding Sing Core™ inside some of the biggest aircraft hangar doors, large sliding barn doors, factory doors, large commercial doors, warehouse doors and large garage doors.
Sing Core™ is the only door core material that enables our door manufacturers to deliver doors that do not warp regardless of size or external materials in either interior and/or exterior doors, if they are designed by our Non-warp True Flat Specialists. Sing Non-warping door blanks are available in any type, style, shape, exterior skin and/or composite configuration.
Insulated doors offer enhanced separation between two areas separated by an opening, doorway or egress point. Sing Core insulation starts at R3.5 per inch and goes up from there, based on architectural specifications. Insulated door are of primary interest to architects, designers and engineers seeking soundproof door, hurricane doors or other weatherproof door where an insulated door is specified.
Sing Core is of primary importance in security doors of substantial size. Large security doors are difficult to manage normally due to weight; this problem can be solved with the Sing solution. A security door can be used in a variety of circumstances and applications including impact doors, and bulletproof doors.
Using Sing Core™ inside, impact resistant doors don’t have to be heavy weight, which causes unnecessary stress and strain on both the hardware and structure, while delivering all the security desired including increased privacy due to innate door insulation.
Sometimes a custom door manufacturer, millwork or door manufacturer faces a job that requires doors with unique attributes to accommodate a particular usage following installation.
Specialty doors may need particular characteristics to meet the requirements of the end user. Architects, designers and engineers can use Eco-friendly Sing Core™ inside to have greater control over:
Any exterior surface

Contact the Non-warp True Flat Specialists to see if getting Sing Core inside your door just makes perfect sense.
Sing High Precision Doors are a marked improvement in door development, design and implementation thanks to a newly invented Eco-friendly core material that is lightweight, insulated and stronger than steel pound for pound.
This new technology is revolutionizing the door industry especially in regards to large oversize doors. Architects, designers, mill works and door manufacturers all experience problems with doors that are larger than normal size.
Large doors present a variety of challenges in areas, like:
- choice of available materials
- lightweight doors are weak and tend to fail
- heavy doors strain hardware and structure
- increased regular maintenance
- failure due to warping
Sing High Precision Doors solve all these issues with an Eco-friendly insulated solution.
How high precision are Sing High Precision Doors?
Sing High Precision doors are created with so much accuracy that the original door slabs are perfectly flat within .0006 inch accuracy.
After applying your desired composite materials and/or skin, your high precision door can be laser CNC machined for a perfectly flat surface, limited only by the accuracy of your CNC machine shop capabilities.
The Large Challenge
Certainly, you could use laser CNC cutting and engraving to machine nearly any door made of almost any commonly used door material for a flat result. The challenge comes from standing the door upright and expecting a degree of effective usefulness over time.
The effects of gravity, varying degrees of moisture and/or atmospheric change, and the natural limitations of the characteristics of the building materials that comprise the door all contribute to its failure. This causes dissatisfaction for the end user, who has invested a great deal of expense in the design, manufacture and installation of this specialty large door.
Door warping is the number one problem for oversized doors that are otherwise enjoyed by the most discriminating end users.
No one wants to spend that kind of money on a door that is going to warp, bend, twist, delaminate or compromise the structure or hardware with normal recommended use.
Now, here’s the exciting part…
Sing High Precision Doors can be guaranteed not to warp, bend twist or otherwise fail for 50 years!
Take a look at some of our clients who trust us with those difficult door challenges because they are the most reputable high performers in the industry who only deliver the highest marks in terms of customer satisfaction, especially now that they can deliver a fail-free large door that will not cause frustration for their client’s or their service departments. See clients List.
Highest Precision in Doors
No other building material can be guaranteed to maintain a true flat surface and milled with laser precision for long-term maintenance-free performance for 50 years. This is why you can find the growing demand for the Sing solution from beneath the sea (US Navy) to outer space (NASA) and everywhere in between.
The high precision Sing solution is not just for doors; turned flat these very same Sing Panels can become floors, tables, counter tops, ceilings and roofs. Turned on their sides, these patented panels become walls, moveable partitions or virtually any other type of application.
Sing Core’s national headquarters is located in McCleary, Washington and we’re proud to live in Grays Harbor County that has recently embraced lightening the restrictions on property owners to build their own 800 sq. ft. structures without a permit. Many areas are joining the revolution to allow residents to build structures independently.
An 800 square foot structure is a reasonably-sized structure that could offer a comfortable living environment, like a tiny house.
Let your local government know about the trend of NO building permit required for 800 sq ft building.
Change your county building code if this is not available for you.
For instance your 800 square foot structure could have a 20 ft x 40 ft footprint, like this one:
This 10 foot tall walled structure could be built using 5 ft x 20 ft galvanized steel panels with door and window cutouts in less than an hour by a few people (using a rapid assembly method). Seem like too little time? Okay, add a second story in another hour, even a third story.
Building a two-story house in two hours using two people could only be possible using patented Sing Core technology.
Check local building codes in your area. Most counties or municipalities allow the do-it-yourself builder to construct a structure of a minimal size without a building permit. Other options (as recognized by many tiny house enthusiasts) include building your structure on a trailer; as mobile structures – like a tiny house on wheels – are exempt from building codes.
Don’t Be Framed
Building structures with Sing Panels does not require traditional framing because the structure is built into the wall. You can build a solid structure with 1 inch thick wall panels without any structure framing due to Sing Core’s:
Patented Sing Core provides a natural vertical wood grain torsion box/foam composite that is so strong that it is recognized by high-tech industries as the strongest affordable lightweight building material that is stronger than steel pound for pound and able to reach long spans without heavy substructures.
Building with this patented technology is advantageous for so many reasons, like:
Sing Panels are easy to handle because they weigh so much less than other building materials. One person can easily handle a standard 4×8, and two can easily maneuver a 5×20 – not because of the weight – due to the awkward size.
There are so many options in methods of assembling your Sing Panels in your building project, but there are extremely fast options. For instance, you could have your Sing Panels pre-cut for all window and door openings and have quick connecting cam-locks installed for quick and solid assembly. See Video of a 70 ft trade show display erected single handedly in less than 1 hour.
Every Sing Panel is packed wall-to-wall with insulation and can achieve R-values of 6.5 per sq. inch. There’s no need to insulate your pre-insulated wall panels; plus you get the added benefit of extra privacy and protection from the environment due to inherit sound-deadening qualities.
Save on Construction Costs
Save up to $5000 – or more – just on construction costs due to being lightweight, easy to assemble and not having to require time-consuming 2×4 framing. Your contractor can save both time and money. No need to frame, plus you can have all door and window openings pre-cut and ready to build.
Your reinforced structured insulated panels can be pre-fabricated using any extreme-weather resistant exterior material you desire. Most popular for rapid pre-fabricated structure building includes fiberglass, marine-grade ply and galvanized steel, which offer weather resistance without applying additional siding.
Long recognized for inventing the only high-precision true flat building material that stays flat, your Sing structure will remains straight and true, not like wood framing and other materials. Only sing Panels can affordably achieve these high marks.
Sing Panels are available in nearly any flat exterior building material including, but not limited to, any wood species, aluminum, concrete, FRP, HPL, Kevlar, metal, plastic, stainless steel, etc… Just about anything you could desire. Plus, you could have one material on the inside facing, and another on the outside. Example, galvanized steel on outside and plywood on the inside.
We’re all about helping to make your design dreams come true. We can modify Sing components to your specifications and meet the structural durability requirements of your project. As we are well-known world-wide for building large oversize doors that can be guaranteed for 50 years and will not warp, bend, twist or rot using this technology; this is our specialty.

Sing Concrete Formwork
Leading edge concrete contractors are embracing the Sing Core technology especially in terms of aluminum concrete formwork. No other aluminum concrete formwork currently available in the concrete forming industry can compare in terms of lightweight, high-strength and watertight. High Strength Sing Concrete Formwork can be reused many times easily withstanding the pressure of compacted concrete without fail.
Even though Sing Core is much more technologically advanced that other concrete formwork systems, these benefits can be utilized by contractors at huge cost savings as prices start at only $2 per sq. ft. with the added benefit of enhancing your bottom-line by reducing production time, labor and equipment costs. Competitively-priced Sing Concrete Formwork reduces production, equipment and labor costs due to being so lightweight and high strength.
Due to Sing Concrete Formwork’s torsion box filled with foam structural core, our concrete contractors are using only 10% of the snap ties and shoes using our 3 inch aluminum form panels instead of 1 inch standard plywood; plus our Sing Concrete Formwork is 18-times the strength of plywood and weighs only 25% the weight of plywood (yet comparable in price). Sing Concrete Form panels are extreme weather resistant and water proof and easy release.
Due to Sing aluminum concrete formwork being so lightweight, panels can be easily transported, assembled/disassembled and erected by labor reducing both heavy equipment costs and operating expenses, also resulting in fewer labor and industry on-the-job-injury claims due to handling.
Concrete contractors are making the change from 1 1/8 inch and ¾ inch MDO plywood to patented Sing aluminum concrete formwork every day as their solution due to the many attributes inherit in patented Sing Core’s superior performance.
Sing concrete formwork is the premiere high-performance engineered aluminum formwork system is extremely lightweight and is imbued with unparalleled longevity in heavy use circumstances. This extended life-cycle is realized due to the nearly indestructible nature of patented Sing Core combined with aluminum resulting in aluminum concrete forms that can be easily adjusted for precise formwork placement and reused over and over again without compromise.
Sing Aluminum Concrete Form Comparisons Based on 2″ x 2″ Grids
Lightweight, High-strength: Sing Concrete Formwork weighs a fraction of the weight of traditional timber formwork – even less than other engineered formwork systems – yet is many times stronger compared to any other lightweight concrete formwork system. In fact, Sing Core’s compression strength was tested at UW at 660 PSI (stronger than steel pound-for-pound) and could be increased to meet your specifications if necessary.
Light weight: When compared to other materials Sing Core weighs much less, as much as 50% less, or more, as little as 4 lbs. per sq. ft. yet eco-friendly. This advanced technology used in the aviation industry is now available for use in your home.
High strength: Sing Core based on 2″ x 2″ grids and 3/4″ thick = 660 PSI. For instance, aluminum 3/8″ grids = 30+ PSI (smaller grids should be more strength). Sing Core’s superior strength comes from its advanced torsion box design.
Insulated Concrete Formwork: In permanent concrete formwork applications, high-performance insulated Sing Concrete Formwork is permanently installed providing both thermal and acoustic insulation. Sing Core has built-in insulation value with an R3 to R6.5 rating per inch, depending on client’s needs/specifications. Sing Core’s filler material has natural sound-deadening properties. Other sound-deadening options are available at customer request.
Interlocking Concrete Formwork: Using the thru-bolt fastening method, Sing Concrete Formwork panels can be secured together easily and inexpensively.
Reinforced Concrete Formwork: In permanent installations, Sing Concrete Formwork stays in place to offer reinforcement as well as extreme weather isolation/protection and deterioration-free maintenance to the overall concrete project.
Solid: Sing Core is solid like a rock. While the vertical wood grain torsion box core may be compared to other hollow honeycomb cores, the Sing Core voids are not hollow as they are bonded wall-to-wall and filled with recycled foam for a strong, solid substrate.
Easy Release and Repairable: The aluminum surface is easily pre-treated with diesel, are waterproof and in the event of damage, can easily be repaired onsite to achieve the original strength of the concrete form panel.
Waterproof: Sing aluminum concrete form material is waterproof including components and zero formaldehyde adhesives used in the manufacturing process.
Custom Concrete Formwork: High-end concrete contractors and architects enjoy high-performance Sing Concrete Formwork’s ability to be custom designed and manufactured with any variety of sizes, thicknesses or exterior skin options to meet the special need of the most demanding products and applications.
Any Thickness available: Sing concrete form materials is readily available in many thicknesses, up to 6 inches in standard thickness, with custom thicknesses available.
Skin options: Available in many different exteriors including (but not limited to) aluminum, cement board, cold roll steel, concrete, ceramic tile, fiber glass, galvanize metal, glass, MDF, metal, plastic, plywood, solid wood, stainless steel, etc…
Fast turnaround: In you’re in a rush, only Sing Core can be custom made within 24 hours and is proudly manufactured for you in the USA.
Eco-friendly: Sing Core is manufactured using natural wood fibers, no formaldehyde, or toxic chemicals, is created using less energy than any other core material with little or no waste.
Renewable: The structure of Sing Core is 100% renewable (nature-grown) clean fiber and/or recycled material.
Oversize: Sing Core excels in area of large oversize products due to its unique properties and can be up to 50 foot length.
Dimensionally stable: Sing Core is the most dimensionally stable building material allowing us to create large, oversize products (i.e., doors, up to 50 ft.) that are true flat exceeding AWI standards and can be guaranteed to be true flat. Large oversize panels can be truly dimensionally stable without any movement due to temperature and moisture change.
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.
Due to being the newly invented and possibly the most significant improvement in building materials in the last century, it is not uncommon to see Sing products recommended as substitutes for products in the original specifications initially specified by architects. Even though Sing Core is new, we are not that new and have years of experience to assure or most demanding clients that they only deliver the best to their clients.
Why would you substitute Sing Core?
In this day and age, it is of primary importance to take into consideration that the impact of your project will have on the earth. Everything we do to help preserve our precious planet is a step toward providing a better world for all life for generations to come. Sing Core’s true green technology is a huge step toward responsible sustainability.
One of important advantages of sing Core is its lightweightedness when compared to other building products. Other traditional building components that can even come close to matching the lightweight characteristics of Sing Core are extremely weak and have little or no structural integrity. This might be acceptable for visual representation upon installation, but may deteriorate rapidly over time, something that you might need to consider in the design process.
Extremely High Strength
Sing Core is super strong, so strong, in fact, that independently tested results from the University of Washington revealed a PSI of 660-to-over-1,100 pounds per square inch of compression strength, which is stronger than steel pound for pound. This is why you see Sing Core substituted in extreme weather, under heavy loads, maintain strength over long spans, blast and bullet proof applications.
Prior to the invention of Sing Core it was nearly impossible – or extremely expensive and laborious – to build a true flat door (or any other surface desired to be flat over a long span with little or no framing). In fact, current regulations for flatness allow for a ¼” of deflection over a 6 foot span. Sing Core outperforms any other material and can be combined with wood and other products and still be guaranteed true flat.
You might be surprised that a building material that is made in the USA cost much less than other composite materials and is so affordable, that it is not priced much more than particle board and can end up being much more inexpensive especially when you factor-in savings in shipping, handling, installation and maintenance costs.
Guaranteed for Life
Sing Core is such a structurally sound building material that it is possibly the only material that can be guaranteed for life, but is designed and built to last for centuries, with little or no deterioration over time, when product is used as specified. When product is properly matched to application, sing Core will not warp, bend, twist or rot, like other materials.
And that only comprises the top half-dozen reasons that people are switching to Sing Core.
As the project owner, you may have just found us on the Internet and want to see Sing Core featured in your project due to all the added benefits. We work hand-in-hand with designers, architects, contractors and homeowners to make sure that you have the right Sing products to match your requirements and specifications. This makes the job safer and more efficient for your general contractor and your architect will thank you for being diligent and for introducing them to Sing Core which they will continue to include in future designs.
How to Specify Sing Core Inside Your Doors
When specifying Sing Core inside your doors, you can specify “Sing Core” as the manufacturer but note that the doors will need to be finished by a millwork or custom door manufacturer. This about how this might impact the price (important for contractor during price estimations). It would also be helpful to also specify weight ratio of “3 to 4 pounds per square foot” and “50 year warp-free guarantee,” to prevent substitution by the contractor. You don’t want your client to end up with a substituted non-Sing door and be unaware of it until it warps later (see example).
Does Your Door Have Sing Core Inside?
If your door has Sing Core inside it can come with a full 50-year warp-free guarantee. No other door can be guaranteed like that, unless it has Sing Core inside.
It is rare, but there have been occasions when a door has warped, when someone thought it had Sing Core inside, but it did not.
For instance, last year, an architect in Florida specified a large wooden door with Sing Core inside. The contractor contacted Sing Core and received an initial price quote.
Nine months later, we received a call from the architect who had been contacted by the building department that reported that a large wooden door with Sing Core inside had warped.
We searched our records and could not find any record of the job. We did discover the initial price quote request from the contractor who must have found a different way to make the large door.
Your large door with Sing Core inside comes with a certificate of authenticity and guarantee.
Be forewarned, if your large wooden door doesn’t have Sing Core inside, you can expect it to warp.
Make sure your large doors have Sing Core inside.
Not Just for Doors
Certainly, we are best known for our door applications, and for many years, people thought of us as a door company because of how superior this material is in that specific application. While we have established ourselves as the perfect door builders – especially when addressing challenging door specifications for oversize, sliding or hinged applications – Sing Core has nearly limitless applications and is featured in many of the most high-end homes. We are the only door that can be guaranteed even after being exposed to weather conditions and no other wood door can be guaranteed true flat.
Rarely does a day go by where we don’t see someone versed in contemporary architecture design who reaches out to Sing Core to solve another issue of strength vs. weight, saving economically by reducing shipping, handling, installation, repair and maintenance costs, and upgrading the overall green value of a project.
If you have just discovered Sing Core, it is not too late to substitute sing products for the traditional products that were originally specified by your architect. We work with architects and designers to make sure that you have the right sing product to match your specifications, meeting (or exceeding) any expectations that you might have.
We can help you with the substitution submittal process and we have staff on-hand with the experience to make sure that your needs are met or exceeded, and the results can be guaranteed for life (per warranty certificate accompanying your guaranteed Sing product).

Applications -> Building Components -> Doors -> New Door Technology
There is a new concept in Eco-friendly door manufacturing that raises the question:
“Is Sing Door Core a better way to build doors than any other type of door?”
Sing Core’s patented door core has the unique ability to build a true-flat, weather proof/water tight, lightweight door that is stronger than steel and will remain flat for centuries, covered by our 50 year true flat guarantee (compare to other door companies’ warranties that do not cover when used in exterior applications). This new technology allows nearly limitless customizations allowing clients to design any door imaginable in any configuration, style, appearance and/or feature any flat surface material. Our French doors come complete with custom lite opening cutouts to your specifications in any size or shape. Glass doors can be combined with true raised panel doors for the most high precision patented Sing door core (within .006 inch tolerance) affordable American made doors.
Sing Core is a new advancement in door building technology that is bringing door-related jobs back to America.
New Sandwich Door vs. Stile & Rail and Wood Door
|SING DOOR||STILE & RAIL and WOOD DOOR|
|Visually impressive||Visually impressive|
|True flat||Depends on wood and craftsmanship|
|Stays flat for centuries||Will warp, bend, twist over time|
|Weather resistant||Weather exposure will cause door to fail|
|One-piece construction||Many pieces, each piece is a weak spot|
|High strength||Moderate strength|
|Highly customizable||Choose from variety of designs|
|Affordable||Handcrafted = expensive / import = cheap|
|Made in the USA||Yes / No|
The idea of building doors with a “sandwich panel” is not new. A sandwich panel consists, basically, of a core material (like a paper honeycomb material found in most inexpensive lightweight doors, or particleboard found inside less expensive heavy doors, while high-end doors may use expensive LVL or solid wood stave core but cannot be guaranteed true flat) sandwiched (glued) between two exterior surface materials – or “skins” – to form a composite panel suitable for creating a door.
Don’t be fooled by door companies who advertise that their doors contain “honeycomb core,” because they may be using paper honeycomb core which has little core value. Make sure you inquire as to whether your door has patented Sing Core, aluminum core or plastic core. Know what your core value is before you buy your door.
Patented Sing Door Core presents an entirely new set of advantages over other types of core materials that result in insulated doors that last for centuries due to the strength and lightweightness of Sing Core. See table of core comparision.
This new door manufacturing technology makes it possible to create the most versatile doors with a nearly unlimited range of design capabilities without the need of framing or antiquated stile and rail door building methods.
Sing Core could be the least expensive high strength, true flat core material ever invented.
Stile and rail and wood doors are labor intensive causing many of the door companies in the United States to seek off-shore solutions and import doors to reduce the price to the end consumer.
The invention of Sing Core is bringing custom door manufacturing and the jobs associated with it back to the USA. This is due in part to providing American door manufacturers with a base material (Sing Door Core) that enables them to build an insulated, high quality, lightweight, high strength door in any style, without labor intense stile and rail door building methods.
Doors made with Sing Door Core can be made to any size, easily be modified to simulate stile and rail multi-panel design, quickly and easily be custom cut for any size or shape of lite openings for glass placement, and can feature any exterior surface material. See photos.
Doors made of Sing Core shine across the door industry as metal doors, cement board doors, FRP doors and STC sound rated* doors while appearing is door applications as flush doors, French doors, sliding doors, pivot doors, bi-fold doors, entrance doors, interior doors, carriage doors, garage doors and barn doors. Even now, we are working with bullet proof door industry.
All this at a fraction of what it would cost in labor costs to build a stile and rail door made in the USA.
LESS ENERGY – LIGHTWEIGHT – HIGH STRENGTH – SUSTAINABLE
Composite materials, like Sing Core, are leading the wave of new advancements in material science that are taking these new technologies into the future. These revolutionary technologies focus on reduction of energy consumption both during the creation process and in material handling. The newest advancements address common issues associated with weight and strength. Other major concerns are in sustainability. Sing Core excels in all of these, while being extremely affordable and proudly Made n the USA.
Patented Sing True Raised Panel Doors
High quality Sing Core Doors are affordable compared with other types of stile and rail doors, raised panel doors, French doors, carriage doors, sliding door, etc…
A raised panel door gives you that classic look of a 3-dimensional door that becomes a focal point and statement by the designer and/or homeowner.
Traditional raised panel doors have been made the same way for hundreds of years, in recent years technology has been introduced to simulate this style at an affordable price. Price being a concern has led to more off-shore imports flooding the builders’ supply markets.
Case Study: 125-year-old New York Church
Problem: Exterior wood stile and rail doors fail, bend, warp, twist; requiring continued maintenance and repair.
Solution: Sing True Raised Panel Doors, guaranteed true flat – and stay flat – in exterior application, while matching original 125-year-old raised panel design.
Details: Sing Core expertise in matching client’s specifications and requirements based on patented technology that can deliver true flat, lightweight and high strength doors in any size, that can be guaranteed true flat per your specific performance standards. In this case 6 weatherproof Sing True Raised Panel doors were required to replace 6 125-year-old exterior wood doors in an effort to eliminate regular maintenance and repair challenges of previous wood stile and rail doors.
Specifics: To address the issue of weatherproof and flatness integrity for centuries, the Sing design team’s solution included Sing Panels made of Sing Core door core reinforced with aluminum and a marine grade plywood exterior skin. To match the appearance of original traditional raised panel doors, additional wood trim was added atop the panels to match the 125-year-old previous door design. A perfect match with superior performance eliminating constant maintenance.
Note: The true flat weatherproof aluminum and marine plywood composite Sing Door is the solution for any exterior door of any size including large doors.
What is a Sing Raised Panel Door?
Sing Core introduces the True Raised Panel Door. The unique design of the Sing Core Raised Panel Door capture the original intent and look of a traditional raised panel door, but offers advantages that cannot be found otherwise.
Other raised panel doors offer little structural integrity. The structure can easily be compromised by little more than kicking the door causing it to break apart at the seams. In contrast, if you were to kick a Sing Core Raised Panel Door you would break your foot.
The secret is in the core of the Sing Core Raised Panel Door. The center of the door is solid as a rock, is resistant to warp, twist or rot and can be guaranteed true flat by build up the surface of Sing panel with molding and decorative raised panels instead the conventional raised panel doors are cave in at some area less than 1/2 inch thick, Sing and cost much less than a traditional raised panel door, which is not really a raised panel door at all in comparison to the Sing Core Raised Panel Door.
All doors start with the basic Sing Flush Door
The best solution according to the Sing Core culture and philosophy is the most affordable solution of using an authentic flush door, though many artists and designers use the Sing Core Flush Door as substrate and add moldings and decorations to meet varying aesthetic specifications.
Add molding for true raised panel features
On the left is the traditional 6 panel “raised panel door” and on the right is the Sing Raised Panel Door that is a true raised panel door, unlike the door to the left. Visually, they look identical, but that is an illusion.
The one on the left is made of 15 pieces of wood assembled together and where the routing is at its narrowest connection-points the door is extremely thin. While visually appealing with a classic look, the door on the left can easily be compromised by kicking the door at any given seam. On the other had an alternative approach is to carve the designs into a solid piece of wood (which is similarly weak at the deepest carve-points).
On the other hand, the Sing door blank is the base used as door substrate, now you can add molding and raised panels on top for the true raised panel door result. Warning: Kick the Sing Raised Panel Door and break your foot, not the door. (We accept no responsibility for injury.) If you can break a sing door, we’ll send you a new one for free.
Plus, the Sing Raised Panel Door gives you all the benefits that come with having an Eco-friendly technologically advanced door that simulates the classic style of the traditional raised panel door.
That’s why many designers who are restoring classic architecture are using Sing Core to replace outdated structural materials and doors. Working with Sing Core, artists and designers are able to duplicate the look and feel of classic materials without having to compromise by loss of energy or unreliableness of traditional building materials.

True Raised Panel Door
A new door fabrication technology is changing hundreds of year door making tradition. Now high quality precision (Sing Core tolerance within .0006 inch) doors can be proudly manufactured quickly and easily in the USA. Patented Sing Core can be used in many applications, to include building entire homes.
1. True flat and stay flat
For a very demanding high-end door requiring extremely true flat Sing Core will take your opening task and build your Sing Door according to your expectations. See: How to build a true flat door.
Sing Core weighs in at 4 to 5 lbs per cubic ft. vs. LVL or solid wood core which weight 35 lbs. to 45 lbs. per cubic ft. (Heavy doors are more difficult to manage, can be dangerous to install. Following installation, may put young fingers and limbs at risk.)
3. High strength
See the strength of Sing Core vs. other cores. Doors made of Sing Panels are one piece construction instead of conventional stile and rail doors joined together by wood dowels.
Unlike wood or any other solid core door (with little or no insulation), Sing doors offer your choice of insulated materials to fill the torsion box voids to achieve your required specifications for R-value or sound-deadening.
5. All weather doors
Sing Core manufactures true flat weatherproof wood doors that stay flat with proper coating. Due to the unique qualities of patented Sing Door Core, the surface material remains straight and true, will not warp, bend or twist, which causes other doors to crack or water seeps in and the door fails. Also make excellent severe weather doors, like Hurricane Doors.
