Pivot Door Systems

Sing Core helps to support your favorite millwork or pivot door company to create the best pivot door systems available in the world today. Your large architectural pivot door is likely one of the most striking and important features leaving a lasting impression on visitors.

The only 50 year warp-free guarantee and full structure warranty

As we all know, as impressive as it is, your pivot door is going to present challenges if it is a pivot hinge door over 7 ft. tall. There are factors facing architects and designers who desire to incorporate such a feature into a breathtaking structure.

Here are some of the challenges facing designers of your architectural pivot door:

Problem: Large Pivot Doors

The bigger the pivot door, the more challenges face designers, builders, and installers of large pivot doors. The size of your pivot door creates a challenge in the mere handling of the door. If your architectural pivot door is significantly large (of course, the larger it is, the more impressive it is) the size of it makes it difficult to transport between various stages of the pivot door build, from base manufacture, to millwork, to job site and installation. Each of these phases requires handling of the door, which can take many people and may include the use of heavy equipment for maneuvering the large pivot door.

Solution: Large Pivot Doors

Sing Core teams up with only the best millworks, custom door manufacturers and pivot door companies to provide the best Eco-friendly warp-free pivot door systems in the world, and each custom pivot door is proudly made in the USA. Even if your pivot door system requires a very large pivoting door, such as 40 ft. tall, Sing Core has the solution for any pivot door sizes.

Problem: Heavy Pivot Doors

Big pivot doors means you’re dealing with a big pivot door slab of material which is extremely heavy in weight. These heavy pivot doors are tough to handle by hand, requiring heavy equipment to move them around through the various stages of creation and throughout the installation process.

Solution: Lightweight Pivot Doors

Pivot Doors with Sing Core inside weigh a fraction the weight of other solid core pivoting doors. Significantly lighter weight pivot doors, even metal pivot doors, translates to huge cost savings in terms of manufacturing, transportation and long term maintenance costs over time. The warp-free nature of guaranteed professional Sing pivot doors greatly reduces pivot door maintenance costs, making your pivot doors systems more cost-efficient and sustainable.

Problem: Heavy Duty Pivot Door Hardware

Also note the weight of the large pivot door determines the pivot door hardware that will be utilized in the pivot door systems. Heavy pivot door means heavy duty pivot door hardware. The heavier the door, the more expensive the heavy duty pivot door hardware, which can come with an enormous price tag that can exceed the cost of the pivot door itself. In heavy pivot door systems, the hardware can easily be the most expensive portion of the entire system.

Solution: Eliminate Heavy Duty Pivot Door Hardware

Since the weight of your large pivot door determines the gauge of the pivot door hardware incorporated in pivot doors systems, reducing the weight significantly results in being able to utilize low cost hardware, greatly reducing the overall cost of the pivot door system, thanks to having Sing Core inside your pivot door(s).

Problem: Heavy Pivot Door Maintenance

Large pivot doors do impose heavy maintenance costs over time if they are used very much, due to stress of the heavy pivot door on the hardware, structure and further compromising the pivot door seal because of the pivot door material’s tendency to move. This translates to regular maintenance being required to maintain, repair or replace the supporting structure, frame, hardware and pivot door as necessary to achieve adequate performance expectations.

Solution: Little or No Pivot Door Maintenance

By having your custom pivot doors built with Sing Core inside, you can have nearly maintenance-free enjoyment of your exterior pivot door for 50 years. Of course, you will still need normal routine maintenance of the door’s finish, but you can rest assured that you can avoid having the service life of your pivot door interrupted by experiencing undue stress to hardware, structure or suffering the disappointment of a warping pivot door.

Problem: Warping Pivot Doors

Exterior pivot doors are more problematic than interior doors for their tendency to warp by having to separate two different spaces which could (and more often than not do) have quite different environments on either side of the door. This is the main cause of warping pivot doors, which can compromise the seal of the exterior pivot door and add stress to the existing structure and hardware.

Solution: Warp-free Pivot Doors

Sing Core provides the only known solution for warp-free pivot doors of any size. The warp-free true flat engineers and technicians at Sing Core help to design and build your custom door in concert with architectural specification to produce a professional large pivot door which can be guaranteed to offer non-warping performance for 50 years. No other Eco-friendly, lightweight, high strength door can have such a guarantee, unless it has patented Sing Core inside.

Problem: Replacement Pivot Doors

Replacement pivot doors, either at the outset (in the design phase) or as the pivot door begin to fail, is the unfortunate story that faces many exterior pivot door owners and/or users and purveyors of various pivot doors systems. Some care is taken in the replacement of pivot doors to find a pivot door solution which is less likely to fail, or provide some degree of reduction in ongoing pivot door maintenance.

Solution: Replacement Pivot Doors

The answer is not found in any millwork, pivot door company, or pivot door hardware company. The answer to the problems and challenges is found inside the door. Doors made with “Sing Core inside,” are lightweight, high strength, high precision, and can be guaranteed to warp, bend, twist or otherwise fail for 50 years.

Pivot door systems featuring pivot entry doors with Sing Core inside are the number one replacement pivot doors, especially in large pivot front door applications.

Large Pivot Doors

21 ft. tall large pivot door

There’s no doubt about the growth in the pivot door market. Just a few years ago pivot doors were the exception to the rule, today more and more people want to make an impact statement by featuring a pivot front door, and nothing packs more curb appeal than large pivot doors, leaving an everlasting impression. In fact, the bigger the pivot door, the better.

The only 50 year warp-free guarantee and full structure warranty

You know what having a large pivot door means? You got it = large prices, on everything. Everything is more expensive when you’re dealing with a large pivot door. Think about it… Large pivot doors are large and thick, that means they’re cumbersome and they’re hard to manage on the job site, sometimes requiring extra heavy equipment just to move them about the site. Of course, they are heavy, which means transportation is going to be expensive, as well as the heavy duty pivot door hinges (also expensive) because the weight of the large pivot door determines which hardware is needed to support the extra weight.

The extra weight can be a problem if it is being used regularly, causing extra strain on both the hardware and the structure itself; resulting in costly maintenance and repairs to the pivot door and the structure as well over time.

But wait, there’s more: Since everyone wants to have a large pivot front door that means one side of the door faces the structure’s interior while the other side is exposed to the elements, and you know what that means? You got that right: Warped doors! When is a door not a door? When it’s so warped you can’t secure it. There you go = more costly repairs.

What If…

What if one type of large pivot door could overcome all the hassles associated with other large pivot doors. I mean, if the laws of physics could be suspended for a moment, and you could have a large pivot door any way that you wanted it, what would that large pivot door look like?

Pivot Door Size

To start, size would not be an issue. You could have any size large pivot door in any thickness you wanted, without having to make a zillion calls to find anyone who would undertake such a challenge.

Pivot Door Options

You would want to be able to specify any material to have the large pivot door manufactured out of, and it wouldn’t matter if it was concrete, natural and/or exotic wood, including any metal from aluminum to hot rolled steel, or any other available flat building material. You could have whatever you wanted.

Lightweight Pivot Doors

If you could have it any way you wanted it, you would have this large pivot door weigh a fraction of any other pivot door, so that you could reduce transportation, installation and hardware costs at the get-go, as well as having less expense over time, because the lighter weight means less stress and strain on hardware and structure, and less maintenance costs.

High Strength Pivot Doors

If the large pivot door is going to be lightweight, we do not want it to be wimpy. I want to know my family is safe a secure from forced entry, and if someone tries to kick in the pivot door, I want them to break their leg. And if I accidentally drive a pair of forklift forks through it, I want to know that it’s strong enough to take the impact without compromising the pivot door, and can easily be repaired (without having to remove the large pivot door).

Warp-free Pivot Doors

Might as well throw in the idea of having a large pivot door with superior warp resistance; how warp resistant would you want? Okay, let’s say it. We want a door that does not warp, period, even if it is used as an exterior-facing pivot front door.

Pivot Door Insulation

Just for fun, we might like to throw in the idea of having a large pivot door that is well insulated to provide more safety and security from sound deadening and energy savings to superior climate control.

Customizable Pivot Doors

I’d want to be able to customize the large pivot door any way I wanted to, including custom lite cutouts in any shape and style I wanted (not being limited to having to pick from a few options). I want it the way I want it. Can we do that?

You Can Have It All

You can have all this and more! What? Surely you jest. Nope, I am being totally honest with you. You can have everything you could imagine, like unlimited size restrictions for your large pivot doors, made out of any flat building material available, weighing in at a fraction the weight of other solid core pivot doors, yet stronger than steel pound for pound and guaranteed not to warp, bend, twist of fail structurally for a full 50 years.

Oh, and you can have all the insulation you want for sound dampening and saving energy, as well as custom lite cutouts, where you want, in any shape you like.

Now, that is the perfect large pivot door

The most exciting thing about all this, is that it is not just a fantasy, but Sing Core does actually help the best millworks and door companies to supply their customers with the very best large pivot doors available in the world today.

Large pivot doors made in the USA 50 year warp-free guarantee

How is it possible?

The large pivot door technology was birthed from the imagination of inventor, Peter Sing, whose next generation reinforced torsion box design enabled him to be able to accomplish all these feats, outperforming other aerospace-inspired lightweight core materials (rated at 10 to 110 PSI), while Sing’s core clocks in at 660+ PSI. And if you want a high precision pivot door (which is why you see Sing’s products featured from beneath the sea [US Navy] to outer space [NASA]), very few materials can be made so high precision (+/- .006 in.).

With all these features and benefits, who wouldn’t want a large pivot door with Sing Core inside?

How Can I Get A Sing Large Pivot Door?

Here’s the tricky part, and I will lend you a hand, hopefully making it easy for you to get a Sing large pivot door. It’s tricky because Sing Core does not make the doors themselves, they only supply the millworks and custom pivot door manufacturers with the raw materials they need to create these large pivot doors that are anything short of amazing. And that’s the secret.

All you have to do is to go to your favorite local millwork or custom pivot door manufacturer and tell them what kind of pivot door you want, and be sure to say, “I want Sing Core inside.” It’s as easy as that. While Sing Core does not build or finish doors, they do supply the best door makers with the best material available to create the best pivot doors ever manufactured in the United States of America. And, yes, Sing Core is proudly made in the USA.

Seattle’s Symphony of Architecture and Design Center for the State of Washington

sing pivot doors in center for architecture design seattle with man doorsGreen building materials are the focus point of every architecture design now-a-days. As the home of the architect and design community for State of Washington, which is the leader in high tech and advanced materials playground for searching the planet for green, earth-friendly products is essential for this new home for all designers and architects.

In the temple of Seattle’s Center for Architecture & Design, the evergreen state sets the standard for promoting the highest standards of preserving our green earth among the Pacific Northwest architectural community while seeking out new ways to approach a more sustainable approach with building products that save energy and add longevity to the overall life of projects around our local communities and the world.

The idea of a local design center is not new, but the Seattle design center is the leading edge of this new technological approach to new office designs; bringing to life the idea of a multi-functional design combining office space, media, meeting and a gallery to promote green design permeating all areas of life and our society.

It all starts with the composer / architect of the project; with Ric Peterson’s design of Suyama Peterson Deguchi, while leading the team of the designer of the total project which includes a varied line up of suppliers, general manufacturers and fabricators to tackle the most challenging job to represent the state’s finest architects and designers. When all is said and done, the resulting space in this center represents the new philosophy and concept of engineering for a better world within the office space that has superior functionality as it is easy to maintain and built with the longest lasting building materials.

The symphony’s composer is Ric Peterson, FAIA of Suyama Peterson Deguchi was charged with the challenge of creating a design center work of art. The score is conducted by general contractor / conductor of the symphony, Krekow Jennings supervising all components while acquiring and arranging the performers (trade professionals such as sub contractors) participating in the creation of the newest chapter in executing the design by using green building materials made locally, produced with less energy and waste used throughout this project. The resulting masterpiece is a modern office, meeting room and gallery in a picturesque downtown location as a perfect showcase for professional trades and an inviting exposure to the general public. The whole job will not happen if without all the support from the donor of their trade skill to help such as painters did all the paint work for the furniture, and Schuchart/Dow craftsmen did all the assembly which basically started from patented Sing Panels, all in flat-pack which is easy and takes up less space for shipping to the job site avoiding damage during transport, and the end result is a new chapter of this ornate symphony of building art; simple, functional and elegant.
huge extreme edge pivot doors in seattle center for architecture design sing core

FAIA Mr. Peterson is a senior architect for Suyama Peterson Deguchi (SPD) responsible for providing the solutions to build the multi-function 4800 sq. ft. space by creating a gallery that could be converted to a conference room within minutes to hold secure meetings within the center itself. It needs a special pivot door when it open it is a large gallery, when those 4 doors closed it become a conference room. All the furniture, work tables, islands and counter tops are quickly and easily assembled on site

About the large pivot door: Mr. Ric was able to accomplish the door solution by teaming up with inventor, Peter Sing, whose lightweight, high strength building material made it all possible without the use of heavy equipment, lifts and cranes. After being invited to join the project, Sing offered to supply not only the doors but almost the rest of all the office furniture, partitions and even part of the dining table/work table and cabinets in the lunge and office areas – all made of patented Sing panels, same core materials to build those 4 large pivot doors.

About the large pivot doors: There are four 12 ft. x 10 ft. x 5 inch thick doors, It starts with patented Sing core as door panel each weighing around 500 pounds each for easy moving as shown at above pic. Each door was installed in less than a half an hour. These unique large extreme edge pivot doors were manufactured in Washington state using patented Sing Core as the embedded structural core material. those door had added two more layers of material on the job site to create sound deadening and fire retardant features, Even with his lightweight, high strength core material, the wall feels as though it is made of solid stone, when you knock on it. Two of the doors feature a built in man door for simple access when the area is secured as a conference room. Four doors are easily 12 ft. x 10 ft. 2,000 pound pivot doors by the time completed provide the conversion from gallery to conference room quickly and easily.

About the furnishings, desks, tables and partition walls: Office area are also with totally new design approach with new leading edge patented lightweight , high strength eco friendly Sing panels. all those office furniture are assembly on the site by use patented Sing panels all flat pack after paint by painters and hand carry to the designer center, some shelf / table top and partition wall are over 12 ft. in length. Each of the panels are designed to be able to be carried by one person.

Assembling office furniture from sing modular panels lightweight high strength seattle center architecture designThe features of the office and lounge areas are simple but elegant in the functional execution of the artist’s design concept. All the furniture features adjustable legs to maintain work surfaces at high precision instrument grade levels. Up to 8 foot clear span work areas are neat and clean while keeping all power and other cords neatly hidden from view by an embedded wire management channel system that is an effective design component within the work areas. Single piece partitions that span up to 12 feet provide privacy and security while standing flawlessly amidst the efficiently accurate space.

Not resorting to raised level work areas provides an effective approach to cleaning and maintenance of the floor space that is both easy and saves time. all the wiring are hidden within the desk top and shelf channels, instead build raise floor as most commercial office space which takes more space and more assembly time and lose more precious space.

Completing the symphonic work, Sing and his patented product “Sing Core” is joining the team of suppliers that is bringing the dream of Seattle’s design symphony to life.

Hearing about this project might cause you to wonder how an entire facility of this magnitude could be quickly and easily assembled out of multiple integrated modular panels. This is the first time such a grandiose project has been built completely of lightweight high strength panels that are not only sound deadening but are resistant to warp, bend or twist, even while covering long spans and featuring natural wood surfaces.

Thanks to Sing’s lightweight material, it took less than 2 hours to unload and install those huge pivot doors (weighing-in at only 500 lbs.) and three craftsmen assembled and installed all the office and lounge components and furniture. Sing Core it the new Eco-friendly building material that has helped to create the strongest most lightweight office furniture ever invented in the world, creating endless possibilities to provide architects, engineers and designers the ability to provide sustainable long-life office furniture and so much more…

The advantage Sing office furniture which furnish almost the entire design center space

1 Easy to clean floors (less table legs shelf supports to interrupt the cleaning process).
2 Easy wiring management (all wires are hidden in the channel between the partition wall and desk top).
3 Some areas designed with clear span of 10 ft. plus (the shelf top and the table top are at same level) providing more working surface and elegant work space.
4 Partition walls are made of a single piece large panel (without joining to separate entire work station, offers more privacy yet simple, elegant and functional).
5 Easy to assemble on the job site (entire office lounge area constructed of Sing Panels (each piece of furniture is flat packed and installed by Schuchart/Dow).

The advantage of pivot door / partition wall

1 Change the conference room to gallery within minutes.
2 Fire proof and sound deadening patented Sing pivoted door.
3 Man door on both sides of the entrance for easy access.
4 The lightweight and strength of Sing pivot doors enabled designers to add 1,500 lbs. of additional material without compromise.
