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:

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).
If you are like many of our users, you will find that once you discover Sing Core, you will start finding solutions to your dreams and ideas that may have been limited by available building materials of the past.
Join the revolution and see our clients list to see some of the most successful business staying on the leading edge of building technologies by embracing the Sing Core advantage.

The US Department of Energy should do some home work to research the Sing invention. You may believe that Sing Core will help us use less metal by switching to Sing honeycomb metal.

Do not waste more precious metal if you could use Sing Metal honeycomb panel, post and beam.
Replace steel by using Sing 13 ft x 3 ft x 1 inch Sing honeycomb metal plate for use in conveyor.
Precision true flat within thousandths of an inch. Metal fabrication mostly relies on welding which causes the metal to deform. Sing Metal uses structure glue, nuts and bolt instead of welding metal plates onto the steel frame which takes more labor, energy and the end product cannot match the same precision as Sing Metal honeycomb panels.
2 Easy to fabricate and install
Lightweight is safer to process, less cost to transport, less labor to install…..
3 Less cost
Solid metal takes many times more metal than Sing honeycomb panel and post and/or beams. It is expensive to transport and requires more energy to process. And the most important thing of all is Sing Metal is much less expensive than solid metal plank(s) or sheet(s). If you consider the strength, lightweight and eco friendliness of Sing Metal as factors, the selection process between whether to choose regular solid metal material or Sing honeycomb metal is uncomplicated.
Case Study #2
If you’re the kind of demanding client who insists in high precision and true flat doors, panels, walls, floors, ceilings, RVs and boats are your R&D for your products improvement. Then we’d like to teach you how to Sing.
Sing Metal is part of the new technology that builds true flat doors.
If we are able to build true flat doors, then you can trust Sing Core to make true flat floors, ceilings, and walls, etc… that are lightweight with superior high strength and long lasting with endless benefits by Singing with us.
One of the Sing Aluminum honeycomb panels are used as the true flat door’s substrate. It’s used in almost all major high-end residential and commercial door applications due to the true flat characteristics. Even a door made of Sing Core, which is considered to be the most flat door ever made in the industry (AWI standard is 1/4 inch deflection for a regular door) with a wood-based skin has to keep moisture totally balanced, otherwise it will bend and may require time to adequately acclimatize; if you move from place to place, it might takes days, sometime weeks to reach certain flatness.
Sing honeycomb door substrate will be less than 1/8 inch or less. But if you have a door over 12 feet, even over 16 feet, tall and less than 1.5 inch in thickness and you are desire to have the least amount of deflection, then you need to contact www.singcore.com to find the true flat solution. In most cases using our Sing Aluminum panel as your substrate then adding MDF or AB plywood for a paint grade door, or by cold or hot pressing to add finished veneer(s) to build the most beautiful, strong, lightweight and Eco friendly door.
Doors made of Sing Aluminum honeycomb substrate do not need acclimatize due to having no moisture difference on both sides of the door substrate.
Sing Aluminum honeycomb door substrate can be machined or drilled just like wood without damaging the blade and it is easy to glue with proper clean-up up procedure(s).
Large oversized doors for high-end building projects require the true flatness. Patented Sing Core is the ultimate solution for top end millworks across the country.
