Quick Easy Sound Proof Rooms Set Up Tear Down

Sing Core is in the business of helping solve the challenges that face a variety of situations across many industries. Due to the innate sound-deadening qualities of patented Sing Core, there is increasing number of inquiries and applications of interest to designers, architects, high-end audiophiles and homeowners.

Among the various business segments we (Sing Panels) are often invited to join our business clients as they fabricate their own trade show booths on-the-fly. Rather than relying on us (or third-party designers) they simply obtain Sing Panels as their raw materials, then build and decorate to their heart’s content.

At a trade show you want to look your best and sometimes it is important to have a professionally isolated area where you can interact with your clients without the distraction of the ongoing tradeshow noise and distractions.

You could spend top-dollar for your Sing Trade Show Booth, or simply do it yourself. All you need to do is to order the number of Sing Panels that you need to create your booth, i.e., a 12 x 8 trade show booth can be easily constructed our of seven Sing Panels (three for the back and two for each side). Your trade show booth can be assembled quickly, easily and quietly with an electric screwdriver, and can be assembled in minutes singlehandedly.

Occasionally, at an increasing rate of late, our tradeshow people have been using Sing Panels as their structure material for building on site sound proof rooms that are built rapidly at low cost.

Here are the DIY methods that we’ve seen used by some of our clients build the sound proof disposable conference rooms, or presentation theaters:

Quickly assemble a number of 4 ft. x 8 ft. x 2 in. (with ¼ in. luan facing) Sing Panels into the desired room configuration.

You will need a door for access. There are 3 ways to do this:

  1. Order 1 Sing Panels with a door (could be a Sing Sound Proof Door) built-in
  2. Cut a Sing Panel and insert your own door on site
  3. Hinge an entire Sing Panel as an access point

Using this method you will be able to assemble your private area within minutes.

To increase sound crossover and privacy, add panels as floor and ceiling then consider how to sound proof a room:

The Inexpensive, Quick and Easy Way to Sound Proof Your Area

To sound proof your area, you could get Sing Sound Panels which are normally more expensive and used in permanent installations, or you could use the methods used by many of our tradeshow attendees and save thousands and thousands of dollars:

Once you have your basic Sing Panel structure assembled (including floor and ceiling) add as many layers of sheetrock to the exterior (and interior, if desired) as needed to obtain the level of sound-proofing desired.

Just have a local lumberyard deliver the sheetrock that you need, affixing them to your existing Sing Core structure.

“How many layers of sheetrock can the Sing Panels hold?”

Remember, Sing Panels are not only lightweight and sound-dampening but they are also strong. Even without a frame (you don’t really need one because of the built-in torsion box frame) Sing Panels are many times stronger than a rinky-dink 2×4 frame and in fact are stronger than steel (see comparison). So, if you wanted to add a layer of lead for increased sound deadening, your Sing Panel frame can easily handle the extra weight.

An impressive way to increase the sound-deadening qualities of your structure is to alternate layers of sheetrock with sing panels. For example, the basic structure might be your Sing Panel core with sheet rock on both the inside and outside. On the outside and another later of Sing Panel add another layer of sheetrock to achieve the desired result.

You can also add polystyrene, dynamat. polyurethane foam, acoustic textileperforated acoustical soundboard or sound proof foam material to either the exterior or interior of your structure, or both.

Disposable Theater and/or Conference Room

Disassembly of your Sing Core theater or conference room is as easy as reversing the direction on your screwdriver.

Many of our economy sound-proof trade show people simply disassemble their areas, leaving the sheetrock behind for the convention center to dispose of (sometimes they even leave the Sing Panels behind, too, but most of them take the panels with them, if they can).

Perfect for the Do-It-Yourselfer

Think of the time and money you can save by using Sing Panels as your core structure material, then have no fear in adding as much material as you want to bring your acoustic dream to life. Sing Core is strong enough to bear the weight of the heaviest sound-proofing materials, without fail. Don’t be framed, or shy, when using Sing Core.

Carriage Doors

Applications -> Building Components -> Doors -> Carriage Doors

How to Design Order and Build your Carriage Door

unfinished carriage doorSing Core is the top choice of discriminating home owners and high-end users making the switch from overhead doors to carriage doors who demand elegance and superior performance.

Sing Core Carriage Doors are imbued with unique characteristics that separate them from any other commercially available standard carriage door in the world. For instance,

Sing Core Carriage Doors are available in outswing (standard), inswing, overhead, barn door and sliding door configurations to meet your individual requirements and specifications.

Sing Core offers a variety of surface materials to suit your individual tastes or to match the appearance of your classic design.

Due to their superior strength and load capacity in comparison to carriage doors made of other materials, Sing Core Carriage Doors are keenly suited for extreme weather conditions including temperature and humidity variations, storm and hurricane resistance.

Regardless of your choice of exterior material (i.e. wood or steel), windows can be designed, cut and installed to match the overall appearance representation that you desire in your new garage door.

carriagedoorsSing Core Carriage Doors are the perfect adornment for your garage, studio or barn, giving you an unsurpassed aesthetic appeal while being functional and extremely structurally superior.

Each Sing Core Carriage Door is a precision garage door that is handcrafted in the USA and custom built to your specifications.

While capturing the beauty of century old carriage doors, Sing Core Carriage Doors are a fusion of old world technology and space-age technology to create a carriage door that is brilliantly adaptable, functional and will last for centuries.

Save Money

See: Save $7000 on Carriage Doors. Sing Core Carriage Doors are the economically sound buyer’s choice for so many reasons, but have many ways to save you money. For instance,

Transportation and installation of your carriage doors is easier and less expensive due to weighing so much less than others.

Sing-Core-Carriage-DoorsBeing lightweight also means less strain on the hardware and structure with normal use.

Our pre-insulated carriage doors save you heating and cooling costs of your interior space.

The high-strength, true flat and long-life attributes, means less maintenance costs over time.

Sing Core Carriage Doors are competitively priced in comparison to other carriage doors. Why not take advantage of owning a superior end product, with all the added value of Sing Core without having to compromise your expectations, and are available in large, oversized doors.

Sing carriage doors vs. other overhead garage doors

Many people are making the change from overhead garage doors. Ask your overhead garage door company about Sing Carriage Doors.

Take advantage of this new technology increasing sales and profit by increasing value-added benefits and features, while decreasing costs and overhead.

  1. rob-Bi-fold-1-openFunctional Sing Core enables the door manufacturer to build a similar or better than a high-end entrance door. Sing carriage doors are fully insulated, sound deadening, true flat, air tight, lightweight and super strong (backed by a 10 year structural guarantee).
  2. Replace Overhead Doors Many people are switching over from overhead doors to more elegant carriage doors, especially when converting a garage to a work shop, office space or even an extra guest room. Sing carriage doors can be air tight, effectively securing your space for heating in the winter and air conditioning in the summer. Sing Core is made of 90% foam and structure torsion box grids. Sing doors do not expand or move like solid wood carriage doors. This prevents the door from expanding due to the moisture and temperature change which can lead to air leakage or becoming too tight to close the door securely.
  3. Visually Impressive Compared to other garage doors and other carriage doors, sing carriage doors are true flat which will be easy to add design molding, various surface skins and/or textures, design and color detail by adding wood trim or molding. The resulting door is beautiful, enhancing the structure with unparalleled exquisite detail that remains close and tight over time without sagging even after years of use.
  4. Low Cost Carriage doors are the choice of high-end users and come with an equally high price tag. For instance a 16 foot pair of carriage doors could easily retail for $8,000.00, yet Sing door planks are only a fraction (approximately 80% less) of the cost. In comparison to overhead garage doors, customers will often choose the Sing carriage door because they cost less, yet are high-end, more attractive and function better than other garage doors. Once you consider the added cost of metal overhead doors, hardware and opener, Sing carriage doors are much less expensive. Our garage door companies reduce their costs while delivering more for their clients without sacrificing profit margin.
  5. Air tight carriage doors guaranteed lightweight high strength true flat long lifeEasy to Build and Install Sing Core carriage door is lightweight, strong, true flat and works with regular hinges making it easy to move and install. When we first introduced Sing carriage doors, we attracted many DIY end-users who embrace the do-it-yourself philosophy that is becoming more of a trend. Highly successful results were enjoyed by these non-wood working trade professionals. If they can do it, so can you.
  6. Easy to Market Obviously the high-end design and appearance of Sing Carriage doors are the key to engaging homeowners, clients and customers visually. But when you throw in all the added benefits, like, increased functionality, higher quality, sleek and styled appearance, increased lifespan, then you surprise them with a price-tag that is a fraction of a metal overhead or other type of garage door… it’s an easy decision.
  7. Wide Variety of Surface Material Options Sing carriage doors have the largest selection of surface materials to accommodate any look, feel or design of any project. For instance, more popular door skins for Sing carriage doors include: wood, plywood, moisture resistant MDF, aluminum, stainless steel, FRP (fiber reinforced plastic), etc…
  8. Less Maintenance Compared to regular wood doors, Sing Core doors stay true flat, which prevents the moisture from soaking into the skin, like other solid wood and plywood that are likely to generate surface cracks, causing water to get into the inner layer of wood fiber, even when using proper sealants. Sing Core doors do not crack ensuring longer life for sealant/coating compared to any wood door, so you don’t have to worry about how to fix garage door. See characteristics, including rot resistance.
  9. Quality Assurance  Sing Core is commonly used for extremely high-end, demanding jobs; this is why we offer the best structure warranty in the industry. We are making the largest doors in the door industry and boldly back them up with a 10-year warranty.
  10. Custom Size Sing carriage doors are available in any size. Custom sizing (even large, oversize) in any thickness, most any skin option, specialized insulated foam to accommodate your specifications, along with a variety of design molding. With Sing carriage doors, the sky’s the limit.

How to Build a True Flat Long Lasting Carriage Door

Rot-resistant-wood-panels-will-not-warp-twist-crack-or-cup-for-long-lasting-true-flatnessWood-based carriage doors are exposed to a variety of weather conditions, glaring sun, wind and rain and it is important to keep the surface primed and coated to make sure that it does not crack while exposed to weather. Sing carriage doors prolong functionality of surface treatments due to being made with patented Sing Core’s torsion box structure that holds the wood surface to maintain a forever flat surface without twisting or cracking.

You may further weather-protect – even for withstanding the most severe weather conditions – by integrating other material into the surface of your Sing carriage door. Surface skins of aluminum, FRP or stainless steel will not crack like natural wood or plywood to prevent compromise of your Sing carriage door.

If you like the look of solid wood but seek high-performance and longevity, you can use Sing aluminum as your true flat carriage door’s substrate, you will be able to maintain straightness of your doors making them less likely to crack due to movement cause by expansion and contraction of the wood surface material.

See how Sing Panel’s torsion box structure prevents surface crack because of the patented Sing Core’s unique characteristics. To keep your carriage door true flat is a challenge for solid wood or even plywood. Sing Core and Sing Panel master true flat technology for very high-end doors requiring less that 1/16 inch deflection which is more costly.

Sing carriage doors far exceed the AWI industry standard or ¼ inch deflection to be considered flat.

Do-it-Yourself Carriage Doors for DIY Aficionados

For the homeowner/do it yourself craftsman, you can get Sing Panels made to your specifications, and do all the decorative trim and finish-work yourself, saving you thousands of dollars, while having the most lightweight (with the ability to use regular, inexpensive hardware) elegant and energy efficient carriage doors that are easy to install, stronger than steel and will last lifetimes. Imagine: No more overhead garage door repair needed.

Though Sing Core Carriage Doors can be customized to any specification, 
an example of our standard Carriage Door would be:
      • 2 inches thick w/composite sandwich composition
      • Can feature any standard exterior overlay
            o Wood veneer (variety to specs)
            o Solid Wood stave (any available wood species)
            o Plywood
            o Moisture resistant MDF
            o Fiberglass / FRP
            o Aluminum
            o Stainless Steel
      • Built-in insulation
      • Paint grade
      • Standard height/widths (8 ft. or less)

Building Your Sing Log Home

Step 1: The Foundation

The logs should be stacked as near as possible to your foundation, and if you have a slab foundation, it’s best to keep them right on it where they’re most easily accessible.

Your foundation should have 1/2″ or 5/8″ threaded rod extending from the J-bolts sunk in the concrete at approx. 3′ on center. Instruct whoever is doing your concrete work to make sure the rods are installed in the center of the stem wall, as they should extend through the center of the log. Install treated 2×8(or other size appropriate) boards using a hole saw attachment to your drill to drill holes to accommodate the threaded rod, around the perimeter of the foundation.

Lengths of flashing bent at an angle over the outside of the treated boards to form a drip edge and termite guard are installed over the boards before laying the walls. This is called the sill plate, and the logs will be placed on top of it.

foundation-step-1-photo-1foundation-step-1-photo-2

 

Step 2: Installing the First Layer of Sing Logs

Once the foundation is prepared…

Select the logs for the first layer and place them parallel to their permanent locations. Remember that with the butt and pass method, butt joints are staggered, and alternate from course to course. When making room for door space, simply cut the log to allow enough space.

Place the first log with its end reaching to the edge of the foundation making sure that it is aligned in the proper position. Outline the upper face of the log where the tie down plate goes to hold the log to the foundation (use the plate as a guide for tracing, making sure that the rod slides through the aperture in the center). Use a router to notch out the space you traced for the tie down. Make sure it is at least 1/2″ deep to fit the thickness of the plate. If you find that blocking in between log halves interferes with the threaded rod, simply knock it out or cut around it. If you knock it out, you may have to replace it in another location by toe nailing it. If you are not using Olyscrews in your project, simply repeat this process every 3 layers, applying adhesive every course, until you reach the top plate.

1st-layer-sing-log-step-2-11st-layer-sing-log-step-2-2

 

Remove the first log you want to install, and apply two beads of glue to the sill plate where the wood will have contact with it. Return the log, and place the tie down plates where you have notched out for them, with the threaded rod protruding from the aperture. Tighten nuts with wrench, as tight as you can. When butting logs together, it is important that this vertical seam be as tight as possible. Use plenty of adhesive, and you may also “key” this joint in the hollow space with a piece of 3″ (or double 2×4) wood blocking where the seam is, or use rigid foam insulation. You may also decide to chamfer the butt ends to provide an alternate appearance using a router or planer.

Step 3: Installing Additional Layers of Sing Logs

With the first layer done…

Place the logs for the second course parallel to their intended locations around the perimeter. Keep in mind again that just as the corners alternate with each layer, so should the butt joint seams. Align double tongue-and-groove joints, and squeeze a minimum of two (amounts vary according to log size & engineering conditions) thick beads of adhesive onto the top face of the log (outside of tongue) upon which you will install the first log of the second course. You should have at least one bead on both sides of the hollow space. Make sure that there is enough glue to squash down and form a tight seal when you place the next log on top. If you are using the recommended Franklin Titebond adhesive, keep in mind that in wet weather it may not fully cure for possibly 2 weeks because it’s water based, however it is very user health friendly and the screws pin the logs in place until the glue is cured. Make sure that the tongue on the bottom log is aligned correctly with the groove of the top log. If you find the tongues and grooves are fitting a little too snug, simply use a mallet and a piece of wood blocking to tamp them into place.

additional-layers-step-3-3additional-layers-step-3-1additional-layers-step-3-2

Drive an Olyscrew through a pre-drilled hole. It doesn’t matter which of the two wall sides you begin on, just make sure the screw is driven straight down to ensure solid contact is made all the way through the log. Be sure that it doesn’t hit the tie down plate or another screw below it. If at any time the screw threads or part of screw is exposed back it out and try again. No part of the screw should be visible (check the inside of the log to be certain the screw hasn’t gone through the curved part and is showing). Drive the screw until its head is countersunk and flush with the surface. Don’t be alarmed if the log rises further down its length, you will correct it when you drive the next screws. Be aw a leveling device, backing it out or driving it in tighter until its level. Avoid driving the screws into knots. After you gain a sense for the procedure and how it should look, you can are that the screws may alter the leveling somewhat, but you can actually employ the screw check for plumb and level every 2 or 3 layers.

Step 4: Windows, Doorways, and Trusses

When working around openings for windows and doors…

Logs may partially reach into the opening to be cut out later if you’d like to speed up construction, but make sure you avoid the corrugated staples in the spacers as you cut. You may also want to let one course extend entirely through an opening as this has been found to reduce leveling complications, and cut it out after completion. Make sure that the course of logs that completes an opening, the header, is continuous over that opening.

windows-doorways-trusses-step-4-1-1windows-doorways-trusses-step-4-1-2

Windows using Sing Window Frame…

The window /frame unit can be pre-assembled and finished at the factory, ready to be fastened to the log walls rough opening. This saves labor for on-site framing, bracing, leveling and installing windows.

windows-doorways-trusses-step-4-2-1windows-doorways-trusses-step-4-2-2

Interior Walls…

Interior walls could be constructed with 10×5 Interior Sing Logs, or conventional 2x framing. Various finishing materials could be applied to the 2x framing, such as Sing Paneling or gypsum wall board.

windows-doorways-trusses-step-4-3-1windows-doorways-trusses-step-4-3-2

Trusses…

Trusses or other types of roof structures can be installed onto Sing Log walls in the conventional way. Insert double 2×4’s into the cavity of the top layer Sing Log to form a solid bearing surface for the roof structure

windows-doorways-trusses-step-4-4-1windows-doorways-trusses-step-4-4-2

Step 5: The Second Floor

If you have a second floor or loft, you can hang it directly off of the wall. Nail or screw 2×8 or 2×10 nailing strips onto the wall, and attach joist hangers to the strips.

Place the joists in the hangers and proceed with the deck, which can be a variety of materials including plywood, card decking, or other.

second-floor-step-5-1second-floor-step-5-2

Step 6: Finishing

Electrical Outlets…

The easiest way to go is to use the remote system for your outlets they are inexpensive and require no wiring. Another option is to run your wiring along the floor and up the corners and cover with molding.

Outlets for lighting and electrical connections are relatively simple. Pick the log which will contain the outlet before installing it, and using your circular saw (or reciprocating saw) cut out the outlet from the interior wall half of the log, starting from the top. This is more easily done if your outlets are placed horizontally. Wiring should be prepared beforehand, so you can simply pull it through the hole to connect to the socket or fixture later.

Since the logs are staggered, there should be continuous space to weave the wiring inside the hollow space. You may also “fish through” after the wall is completed, use conduit, or have all outlets in the floor and ceiling.

finishing-electrical-outlets-step-6-1finishing-electrical-outlets-step-6-2

Corners…

Use a router or chisel to remove the tongues from the section of log which will become part of a corner. Exterior corners should be foamed in with spray insulation (common types like “Big Stuff” or “Dap” are readily available from your local hardware store) and covered with 1″ cedar trim up the entire vertical lengths of both sides. Use sufficient caulking around the seam between the logs and the trim, as well as where the trim boards meet to ensure a perfectly tight seal.

finishing-corners-step-6-3finishing-corners-step-6-4

Stains…

Once your walls are erected, and before windows and doors are installed, you should apply a stain to the outside facings. A porous, at least slightly tinted stain is recommended to prevent moisture and UV damage. It should preferably be designed specifically for log homes. We recommend Sikkens� Cetol� exterior and interior finishes as they have been thoroughly tested and proven to be superior.

 

Caulking…

For any log to log, or wood to wood caulking requirements, we suggest using Sashco Logbuilder. It has proven very easy to apply, extremely flexible, and long lasting.

 

Adhesives…

Recommended adhesives include Franklin titebond solvent free construction adhesive, PL Premium, PL 400, and 3M 5230. We prefer the Franklin Titebond because it is water based and requires no protective gloves etc. during application, and very easy to use and clean up.

What door companies do not want you to know.

Today, the most common doors found in private residences contain a paper core. These doors are flimsy and are easily punctured, even when slightly impacted. Owners of these doors find themselves spending time and money on repairs, replacements, and installations that would not have been an issue had they purchased a door from Singcore. Singcore doors do not cost much more than paper-core doors, yet they have been tested to be at least 49 times stronger.

Door Security

How secure are your doors? With our patented core, you can rest assured that our torsion box technology will stand up to harsh treatment and all weather conditions. Our doors have been thoroughly tested and have been proven to withstand the impact of a sledgehammer. There is no comparison between the stability, structure, and strength of Sing Core doors versus paper-core doors. http://singcore.com/images/GarageEcoStrong.jpghttp://singcore.com/images/GarageEcoStepThumb.jpg This is a Sing Overhead Garage Door Panel compared next to a typical steel overhead garage door panel. Same size and thickness but as you can see the steel panel buckles with only a few pounds put on it while the Sing Panel holds almost all of Inventor Peter Sings weight without any problem.

Stronger than Steel,

Lighter than Wood

Doors do not have to be made out of steel to be rigid and strong. Sing Core doors are stronger and lighter, than steel and vinyl doors. Standard steel overhead garage doors are made of steel so thin that a golf ball can dent it. This is not the case with Sing Core doors. We offer higher quality doors at prices competitive with steel doors with quality superior to wooden doors.

Sing Core doors are more stable, provide better insulation, and are far lighter than solid wood doors. The torsion-box core holds the Sing Core door flat, ensuring that that the panel will not warp and sag like ordinary wood.

Patented Sing Door Methods

Sing Core doors are versatile and customizable. Every order is custom designed with the client’s project in mind. Each door is constructed using methods that specifically cater to our customers’ individual needs. We construct our doors using the following methods: pole barn grade, paint grade, wood grain grade, and plank grade.

What door companies do not want you to know.

Today, the most common doors found in private residences contain a paper core. These doors are flimsy and are easily punctured, even when slightly impacted. Owners of these doors find themselves spending time and money on repairs, replacements, and installations that would not have been an issue had they purchased a door from Singcore. Singcore doors do not cost much more than paper-core doors, yet they have been tested to be at least 49 times stronger.

Door Security

How secure are your doors? With our patented core, you can rest assured that our torsion box technology will stand up to harsh treatment and all weather conditions. Our doors have been thoroughly tested and have been proven to withstand the impact of a sledgehammer. There is no comparison between the stability, structure, and strength of Sing Core doors versus paper-core doors.

This is a Sing Overhead Garage Door Panel compared next to a typical steel overhead garage door panel. Same size and thickness but as you can see the steel panel buckles with only a few pounds put on it while the Sing Panel holds almost all of Inventor Peter Sings weight without any problem.

Stronger than Steel,

Lighter than Wood

Doors do not have to be made out of steel to be rigid and strong. Sing Core doors are stronger and lighter, than steel and vinyl doors. Standard steel overhead garage doors are made of steel so thin that a golf ball can dent it. This is not the case with Sing Core doors. We offer higher quality doors at prices competitive with steel doors with quality superior to wooden doors.

Sing Core doors are more stable, provide better insulation, and are far lighter than solid wood doors. The torsion-box core holds the Sing Core door flat, ensuring that that the panel will not warp and sag like ordinary wood.

Patented Sing Door Methods

Sing Core doors are versatile and customizable. Every order is custom designed with the client’s project in mind. Each door is constructed using methods that specifically cater to our customers’ individual needs. We construct our doors using the following methods: pole barn grade, paint grade, wood grain grade, and plank grade.
