Sing non-warping large sliding doors, create large exterior openings that provide superior weather performance when closed due to the high precision manufacturing process featuring insulation values to meet or exceed your architectural door specifications.

This unique patented and patent-pending large sliding door technology allows door designers, architects, and highly specialized door engineers to create large sliding doors of enormous size with the highest performance standards, each of these unique large sliding panels, providing additional strength and protection to any space from industrial and commercial to utility and residential applications.

 

It might not be uncommon for you to be looking directly at a product with Sing Core inside when you are in the presence of large sliding mirror wall panels. Large sliding mirrors could be extremely dangerous if they are not attached to a wall’s surface area. Free-hanging large mirrors creates many challenges. That’s why the best large mirror sliding door has Sing Core inside, with its “unbreakable mirror” technology.

Among the high-profile museums and art galleries, entire sliding art walls are also examples of Sing Core’s best of show, which are basically the same as our interior sliding doors, specifically designed for displaying art in the most elegant ways.

You may also find Sing Core inside uniquely fashioned large patio doors, which can limit the view when closed, or have large window openings, such as French doors, and can be one large sliding door, or multiple sliding doors when used as multi-slide patio doors.

Large door openings are made for Sing American French doors or large sliding doors guaranteed to insulate any interior space from and exterior conditions with specially designed swinging doors and French doors, each one an individual work of art, proudly made in the USA.

The Sing Core factory is nestled inside its remote location in the scenic Pacific Northwest where all the magic happens and inventor Peter Sing works in tandem with the largest door companies in the world to create one-of-a-kind doors that can be guaranteed not to warp, bend, twist, or otherwise fail for 50 years.

A Low Cost Alternative Way to Build Very Large Sliding Doors

Although not as tough as our original one piece door designs with a 50 year guarantee, our segmented doors still come with our patented Sing Core structure inside and carry a 5 year warp-free guarantee. And, they can be sold at a much reduced price.

In the past, very large and oversize specified doors were often made as a single piece and shipped whole to the contractor for installation. This is particularly true of very large pivot doors and sliding doors. With modern door construction techniques pioneered by Sing Core large doors can be produced and shipped to the customer in several pieces. These segmented doors pass on savings to the customer while maintaining the highest quality standards for warp free door construction.

Benefits of Modern Segmented Door Construction

Building a door in sections provides numerous benefits without compromise in strength, lightness, and flatness:

See Them Come Together

More Efficient to Build

Constructing a door in smaller sections makes the door easier to handle in the factory and easier to produce in general. Having more manageable sections leads to quick and efficient construction, at a cheaper cost. Doors constructed with our modern sectional approach pass on savings to the customer.

Cheaper to Ship

Doors cores produced in sections are built to be convenient and cheap to ship compared to a door built in one piece. This may reduce shipping costs payed by the customer to receive their door purchase.

Easier to Handle

Very large doors constructed in segments conform to common sizes. When you receive the door at your site handling it in segments is usually more natural for workers used to traditional sized doors than and 4×8 materials than handling an extra large door. Leaving joining the door until it reaches the site cuts costs and saves time all the way from our factory to your building site.

Strong and Stable

Sing Core doors shipped in sections and assembled on site maintain the highest standards for strength, lightness, and straightness. At Sing core we guarantee warp-free performance of segmented doors for 5 years.

How to Assemble a Sing Core Segmented Door

Assembly of a modern sliding door constructed using Sing Core technology without any specialized tools and equipment.

1. Lay Each Panel Flat

The first step to join a Sing Core sectional door is to lay the panels on a flat surface. Any flat clean surface will work. For very large doors we like to use two straight beams laid on the ground along  to hold the top and bottom of each door segment.

2. Slide a Spline in to One Side

Each spline and pocket are precisely cut to fit with strength. Our products are built with our 5 year warp-free guarantee in mind. Simply push or lightly hammer the spline in place on one side of the joint. Then your panels are ready to be fit together.

3. Joining the Panels

The final step in joining a modern sliding or pivot door is to press the sides together. This can be accomplished a variety of ways, including gentle application of a sledge hammer, a few ratchet straps, clamps, or any other means you have of providing joining force. Once joined, the door is strong and secure, built to last, and can be finished and installed as any other Sing Core door.

Large Cold Rolled Steel Sliding Door with Man Door Specifications

General Specifications

 

Standard Sing Core Cold Rolled Steel Sliding Door Blanks are manufactured with patented Sing Core material as the base interior substrate of the door. The Sing Core substrate material is created using a vertical grain natural wood torsion box design while the traditionally empty voids are filled wall to wall with recycled foam. The foam material is available in various forms depending on your specification. The default is recycled EPS foam. Natural wood lock blocks can be positioned at locations as necessary for locking mechanism placement and/or as sliding hardware anchor points. The core material is framed by 1.25-inch wood stiles and rails for finishing strength and attaching hardware. The torsion box is completed by adhering 20 gauge cold rolled steel as exterior material (skin) according to your specifications. The man door opening is cut out to architectural specifications.

Cold Rolled Steel Sliding Door Surface Material

The door blank surface material is made of 20 gauge cold rolled steel unless otherwise specified. Bonding agent used in adhesion of the entire composite material is formaldehyde-free.

* Note: STC rating varies according to size, thickness, skin, and other factors. Sing Core does not rate doors, although we are fortunate enough to have one of the best sound testing labs in the world, here in the Pacific Northwest. If you require a specific STC rating, Sing Core can build a door to your architectural specifications and have the resulting door tested at our rating facility for an official rating.
