How to Build a Sing Door

There is no doubt that Sing Core is responsible for the best doors in the world that can be built in any size for any functional purpose that can be guaranteed to not warp, bend, twist or otherwise fail for a full fifty years of regular use, even though Sing Core does not build doors.

Some individuals can be confused when they visit Sing Core and expect to just buy a pre-hung door that is the best door in the world, only to find that Sing Core does not actually make the door. Sing Doors are made of Sing Core, although we only supply the pre-configured base door material to achieve the results sought by the most demanding clients in the world.

Standard Size Sing Door Blanks

By popular demand SingCore introduces patented door core in economical and easy-to-use standard door width door blanks.

How does it Work?

In the real world, an architect, engineer, designer or the client conceives of the concept of their desired door. In many cases the high concept doors are problematic; some of them are large doors, which tend to fail due to their enormous size, while others may feature exotic materials that are susceptible to warp. Sing Core has the technology to create a lightweight substructure that is stronger than steel pound-for-pound and can be structurally guaranteed for 50 years under normal designed and manufactured use.

It might be helpful, for you to follow us on a journey through the making of a Sing Door.

A Day in the Life of a Sing Door

Door idea dream door concept any size any material any shape any design1 STARTS WITH THE DESIGN

The first step is the idea of the door, that beyond conceptual design is reduced to its most simplest form: The height, width, thickness of the door and the exterior material that is to be featured on the exposed surface(s) of the door.

The idea is then submitted via trade professional (possessing wholesale privileges) via our online quote request. The doors’ specifications are reviewed by our Non-warp True Flat Specialists, who can help determine what materials will be used inside the door to achieve the results expected by the end user.

If the client’s expectations include trouble-free high performance over a long life, the resulting design will be given special treatment resulting in a professional door base.

The resulting specifications are sent to Sing Core’s factory to custom assemble all the substructure components and composite materials necessary to achieve the results sought by the client.

This includes interior framing, insertion of Sing’s patented torsion box core material, solid inserts, lock blocks, fusion of other inner and surface materials plus any specified lite cutouts for installation of glass windows.

4 DOOR FINISHING

Exterior door handmade custom doors any size large door torsion box coreAfter the Sing Core factory has created the base door (door blank) it is sent to the door finisher; this could be a door manufacturer, custom millwork, industrial engineers or high end craftsperson specializing in ornate doors for elite consumers.

The door finisher applies the final finish to the door (trimming, edge routing, painting or other finish treatment), drilling, preparing the finished door for hardware and will likely install the glass (if specified, though sometimes this is done on site depending on the project).

The door finisher may (or may not) pre-hang the door (install all hardware and attach frame).

5 DOOR INSTALLATIONS

Then the door is packed up and sent to the job site, where the attending licensed contractor installs the final door.

Sing Crowd Manufacturing

In this sense, each and every Sing Door is a crowd manufactured project; it is a cooperative effort of many individuals from concept-to-installation, without whom no Sing Door would ever be made.

So, How Can I Get a Sing Door?

The process is simple; if you are a door company or qualify for a wholesale account, you deal directly with us, otherwise, you must seek out a professional anywhere within the Sing chain who will contact us and deal with us directly and they will partner with us by submitting your request to make sure you get the best door in the world custom-designed for the high performance that you demand.

If you are seeking out a Sing Door, we know who you are; you desire only the very best and will not settle for less and we are proud to be the only door partner in the world who can help to make you a door of any size using any material and meeting or exceeding your expectations, guaranteed.

Non warp door blank for building non warping doors of any sizeYou could be one of the best door builders by outsourcing your OEM non warping door blanks.

Sing Core has served the building industry by providing the only Eco-friendly, insulated non-warp high-strength, lightweight door. Contractors who build Sing Homes (entire homes built of Sing products) want the added strength, stability, insulation and non-warping doors in all egress points for added safety and security.

First, we have to talk about what makes the best door in the world; it has to be:

1 Non Warp

Even the very challenging doors, large doors, sliding doors, pivot doors, all can be professional SingCore warp-free guaranteed for 50 years. The secret of the best door makers in the world is that they can use the Sing solution as their door’s base material to create a warp-free door, which is the best solution to the problem of warping doors, especially large doors which would otherwise be extremely prone to warp.

2 Lightweight, high strength, insulated and Eco friendly

The strongest lightweight door in the world is made with Sing Core inside. This revolutionary Eco-friendly building material is based on patented technology that is the best of old wood craftsmen’s technology (torsion box) and new composite technology (recycled rigid foam insulation) fused with advanced adhesives and enhanced with patent pending non-warp stiffeners. The result is an extremely lightweight panel that can span distances without deflection that has not been accomplished before in any affordable manner.

3 Easy to Install

Even the largest strongest sound deadening door can be installed in half an hour. This 500 pound Sing pivot door panel measures 10 ft. tall x 12 ft. wide x 3.5 inch thick and took less than half an hour to install in the Seattle Center for Architecture and Design.

Then, we will explain how to build the perfect door, step-by-step, showing the pictures of the entire process (even the most complicated French door, sliding door, pivot door, exterior door, etc…) with all types of skins/surface material.

High Precision Doors

Foam-Panel-Interior-Structural-Torsion-Box-Sing-Core-RevealedSing 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:

  1. choice of available materials
  2. lightweight doors are weak and tend to fail
  3. Copper-Doorheavy doors strain hardware and structure
  4. increased regular maintenance
  5. 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.

lightweight high strength engineered plywood for making large sliding doors aluminumWhy Large Doors Fail

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.

The Disappointment

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!

large-lightweight-high-strength-garage-carriage-doorsImagine having a large door that can be installed that will not pave the way for repeated service calls over the life of the door.
