Metal Fabrication Metal Door Panels

Galvanized Steel + T SlotWhen it comes to metal fabrication, one metal company is making an environmentally sustainable impact on the manner in which metal is handled in America today. Eco-friendly lightweight and high-strength metal panels are replacing solid metal sheets and metal honeycomb panels in a safe and responsible manner resulting in a patented metal fabrication method creating metal panels that weight a fraction of the weight of solid metal but are stronger than steel pound for pound.

Stainless steel has been problematic for steel fabricators to work with due to being a highly hazardous occupation, until now. Exposure to toxins and high-skilled trades-people make for an expensive end product. The extreme heavy weight of steel presents other problems in terms of safety on the job site and expensive transportation, installation and maintenance costs. Eco-friendly SingCore is the perfect solution for these problems.

Aluminum

21 ft tall metal ivot doorAluminum is a lightweight metal and can be used in a variety of methods but needs a solid substrate or assorted framing to increase performance. While adequate for smaller projects, when the dimensions of the project expands so do the challenges. Sing Aluminum is the next level of high precision and performance due to its ability to offer:

High Strength Aluminum

Where other aluminum panels fail due to unavoidable weakness, Sing Aluminum relies on a solid substrate comprised of natural vertical wood grain torsion box/recycled rigid foam composite to achieve strengths stronger than steel (660 PSI, and more) enabling long spans without deflection or compromise, even under loads.

High Precision Aluminum

Due to the extreme precision (+/- .006 in.) of the solid SingCore composite substrate, the resulting Aluminum material (available in aluminum panel or aluminum post and beam configurations) is extremely flat for high precision applications, while remaining lightweight and Eco-friendly.

Stainless Steel

Lightweight High StrengthThere is elegance to stainless steel that cannot be denied, though problems appear especially when dealing with projects of large size because stainless steel is so heavy. To reduce the weight, stainless steel plates can be sandwiched with some type of lightweight core to reduce the weight, but strength is compromised; that is, unless you have SingCore inside.

Lightweight Stainless Steel

Thanks to SingCore, you can achieve outstanding results using Sing Stainless Steel panels, weighing in at a fraction of the weight of solid stainless steel, but maintaining the structural integrity of solid steel. Even though the weight issue is addressed by using honeycomb or other type of core substrates, they fail under stress or strain. Only SingCore has the ability to deliver the strength of solid steel at a fraction of the weight, while maintaining its high precision.

Galvanized Steel

20 ft span galvanized demoLong known for its ability to offer substantial weather resistance when exposed to the elements, galvanized steel is one of the most effective and long-lasting coating options for steel with a long history of success in all climates and weather conditions.

Super Strong Lightweight Galvanized Steel

Add to the long term success in exterior exposure, the lightweight and high strength of sandwiching galvanized steel around patented SingCore, and you have a panel that is impervious to the elements that could be interconnected using cam lock technology or other methods to build a modular exterior building or shelter in minutes, besides other applications.

You could build modular Sing galvanized steel panel components that could be guaranteed fail-free for 50 years.

cold rolled steel doors available as stainless steel doors and hot rolled steel doors lightweight stronger than steelCold Rolled Steel

Cold rolled steel is readily available in flat sheets and perfect for creating high precision and high performance custom steel doors when applied to patented SingCore. Cold rolled steel is one of the most popular steel surface materials in making Sing steel doors, which are steel doors with SingCore inside.

Besides doors, other popular cold rolled steel products include cold rolled steel panels, posts and beams with SingCore inside for lightweight high strength high precision and long life performance over time, unlike any other cold rolled steel substrate known.

Eco friendly hot rolled steelHot Rolled Steel

Hot rolled steel is similar to cold rolled steel, though is less strong than cold rolled steel. This can be overcome by crating high precision and extremely strong hot rolled steel panels with SingCore inside.

We are seeing an increase in hot rolled steel in both wall hot rolled steel panels and hot rolled steel doors due to the industrial look of the heat signatures that are unique characteristics of hot rolled steel and often part of the aesthetic design of the architect or designer of the project at hand.

Sing Metal Case Study

Case studies of patented Sing Metal honeycomb composite panel and Sing Aluminum honeycomb composite.

Metal is broadly used in many industries. Metal honeycomb composite is the leader of utilitarian usage of honeycomb core to create stronger and lighter metal panels and beams by using much less solid metal. Sing Core is the leading technology of metal honeycomb composite material to solve our future Eco-friendly energy solution by using Sing Metal honeycomb composite

Sing Metal is a fraction of the weight of solid steel used but many times stronger, lightweight steel plate, steel beam

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.

Case Study #1 

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.

metal-belt-conveyors1 Advantage

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.

Metal-doorDoors are a challenge for door manufacturers and mill works if the door is over 8 feet in length and less than in inch thick.

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.
