Sing Solution Considerations

What should you consider when seeking out the Sing solution?

1. Dimensions Affect Price

 

Sing Core can build anything that can be panelized, from large pivot doors to hangar doors and panelized structures such as warehouses or even Sing Log Homes. Very large panels or walls can reach enormous proportions and can be made modular for near seamless assembly on site. Other factors which affect the overall price of your project will be,

2. Importance of Surface Material

 

The skin material used on your panel’s exterior greatly affects how the substructure is built. Basically, the greater the tendency for the exterior surface material to move, the more of Sing’s True Flat engineering is required to create a hybrid substrate which will counteract the panel’s tendency to warp, bend, twist, or otherwise create a challenge in the field over time.

3. Sing Core Inside

The core of the panel in question can come in many different variations besides the patented and fully insulated, reinforced vertical grain torsion box core to match the high precision performance expectations of your project. Many considerations are made to determine the size of the patented structure grids as well as integration of patent-pending counter-warp materials to achieve desired results.

4. Thickness

Thickness of your panel and each of its features affects everything. For instance, it is much easier to keep a panel straight and true the higher the percentage of patented Sing Core is inside your panel proportionally. Even if your surface material is natural wood, your client might desire 3/8” thick material, when using 1/8” material is far more effective, and the difference is not noticeable on the end product.

All of these things play a part in the design and engineering of your panel in terms of

A. WEIGHT

The overall weight of your custom panel(s) is determined by the sum of all the components which are necessary to create a one-of-a-kind solution which meets your required specifications. The greater the amount of Sing Core inside your panel, the less it will weigh and the stronger it will be.

B. STRENGTH

No other substrate in the world is more lightweight or high-strength than inventor Peter Sing’s Sing Core, which provides for a solid composite core based on Sing’s patented insulated and reinforced torsion box structure, which is stronger than steel pound for pound (660+ PSI). By doubling the among of patented Sing Core, you multiply the strength of the panel four times.

C. WARP-FREE

Besides being Eco-friendly and made in the USA, patented Sing Core is the only substrate which can guarantee your panel will not warp, bend, twist, or otherwise fail. In fact, this revolutionary building material enables the best door companies in the world to build large doors of any size which can be guaranteed warp-free for 50 years (a first in the industry).

$50 Reward Lightweight Insulated Torsion Box Non Warping Door

lightweight high strength engineered plywood exposed torsion box coreThe invention of insulated reinforced torsion box helps woodworkers solve the mystery of warping wood eliminating the problems of warp, bend, twist, cup, cracking and even rot.

Sing pre-built torsion box can be used to manufacture a lightweight true flat workstation. It would take hours – even days – of work to build an 8 inch thick torsion box assembly table that wouldn’t be as strong or straight as Sing torsion box panel now available from Lowe’s Pro Desk.

Sing Core Panel Watertight Church Door

No more heavy sliding doors or pivot doors weighing in at 1,000 lbs. or more. Now you can make a sliding door or pivot door – even floor to ceiling oversized large door – that can be less than 20% the weight of a traditional sliding or pivot door, which means longer maintenance-free performance and less expensive hardware (and less door and hardware repair).

High Precision Accuracy and Solid, like a rock

Your lightweight door can now be solid (not like hollow or honeycomb core doors) insulated, sound deadening, stronger than steel (independently tested at the University of Washington at 660 PSI compared to other high-tech aerospace cores at 10 to 110 PSI). High end architectural millworks enjoy the highest precision building material within .006 inch tolerance.

Aerospace Technology Torsion Box Panels

Sing Core is providing new, space age solutions to old technologies that have been used in transportation industries for years.

sing-core-used-in-aerospace-international-aircraft-lightweight-high-strength-tru-flatYou might be as surprised, as much as we are, to find that many leading-edge technologically advanced transportation manufacturers who build the most high-tech aircraft, boat and train vehicles and containers often use old technology in the ground support of the manufacturing process.

Industry-wide, aerospace, marine, mass transit, rail and trucking industries are now starting to upgrade ground support systems for their manufacturing process that has not been updated since the late sixties.

Temporary Floor Upgrade

For instance, while building a large project, temporary floors are used during the manufacturing process. In many cases, these floor s need to support the weight of carts, instruments and heavy equipment as well as bear the weight of the heavy trafficking construction crews without fail.

The traditional method dictated that plywood (often metal clad) would be cut in the exact shape and size of actual flooring that would be installed following the manufacture. This temporary flooring system has been used for years, and though it has become customary to use it, it is simply not as practical as using an advanced system like Sing Core’s.

aerospace-maintenance-repair-and-overhaul-temporary-floor-systemCustom Size for Perfect Replacement

The Sing Core temporary flooring system is a new advancement for these industries increasing ground support exponentially, by delivering, custom-sized flooring panels that are exactly the same dimensions as final finished flooring, yet have the following attributes:

  • Are true flat with minimal deflection even under weight bearing loads
  • Lightweight, reducing labor and transportation costs of assembly and disassembly
  • Designed to withstand regular vehicular weight, movement and stress
  • Last longer, reducing repair/replacement

Regular Maintenance or Periodic Overhaul

Whether your application is in the original manufacturing process or for regular aviation maintenance checks and periodic overhaul, Sing Core temporary floor system will provide maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) shops with the lightweight, high strength, superior solution for your next D check heavy maintenace visit (HMV).

Fewer on the Job Injuries

prevent-slip-trip-and-fall-accidents-with-sing-temporary-flooring-solutionsAccording tot he U.S. Department of Labor Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) slips, trips, and falls constitute the majority of general industry accidents and 15% of these lead to accidental deaths. Avoid the hazardous employee or contractor exposure by upgrading your existing temporary floor solution to the more effective Sing temporary floor solution.

Traditional plywood temporary floor treatments are less effective and potentially dangerous in comparison and may actually contribute to more potential on the job injuries. Plywood is heavy and difficult to maneuver, transport and breaks down over time becoming frayed and causing exposed slivers which could lead to compounding injuries during installation and removal.

Protect your staff with sing temporary floors. Sing temporary flooring can support high-traffic, weight and heavy construction activity without fail with high PSI (independently tested at the University of Washington at 660 PSI) and little deflection over long spans (as little as 1/32, or more) for a more secure working environment preventing risk. And handling Sing temporary flooring prevents injury during installation, dismantle and transport due to being much lighter weight when compared to other materials and does not easily breakdown over time, like plywood which is heavy and not as strong (even if aluminum-clad).

Sing temporary floor solution is an effective way to protect construction and maintenance workers who are working in large aircraft, sea vessels, ship yards, marine terminals, construction sites, stairwells, rail cars, elevators or skylights to avoid injury due to worker slip and fall or protection from falling equipment or debris.

Temporary Food Service Floor

Other temporary floor uses include temporary food service flooring used in mobile or seasonal eateries, restricted menu establishments, bed and breakfast kitchens and food service caterers.

Since standard Sing museum and trade show panels feature built-in wood frames and have many skin options such as  wood, metal, HPL, FRP, magnesium board (for sound deadening), as exterior treatment, simple carpentry skills and wood working tools are all that is needed to modify or beautify your panels on site completing your work of art. You will not confused by European imported museum panels that come with dozens of metal parts and heavy aluminum frames to reinforce the panel’s strength. Alternatively Sing Museum Walls, shelves and displays embrace good, old-fashioned American wood craftmanship. European import paper core and particle board lack the strength compared to patented Sing Core and solid skins provided by Sing Museum wall panels.

It’s amazing what an impact some wood trim/molding can add to the appearance of your project. We can provide finishing at extra charge, or you can do it yourself in house.

Even though Sing Panels can be joined in any configuration or designed to your specifications we have a system available for our standard 2.25″ panels that include a connector stile with cam-lock receptacles to match your Sing Panels and we can accommodate any angle to meet your requirements.
