Metal Pivot Doors

Metal pivot doors include modern steel doors which are by far the most popular modern metal front doors in demand today.

Today’s modern metal door can take on a wide variety of visual representations and can include the combining of many different materials to achieve a unique architectural design, look and feel.

Modern steel front doors are leading the pack in the arena of modern steel doors, for many reasons, which include the wide variety of steel materials which are available for making your modern metal door, such as hot rolled steel, cold rolled steel, diamond plate steel, galvanized steel, and stainless steel modern metal front doors.

Of all the varieties of steel doors the steel pivot door is the most prestigious and the bigger the pivot door the more attention is garnered when encountering such an architectural contemporary work of art.

When approaching large modern steel entry doors, certain challenges tend to arise when approaching this type of design because any metal pivot door of that size is going to be extremely heavy, and if it was constructed using traditional welding processes, you will sacrifice the precision of your contemporary steel entry doors.

Sing Core solves all the problems associated with steel doors

Solving the problems associated with large contemporary steel doors is what inventor Peter Sing’s patented and patent-pending true flat technologies are all about. His invention, aptly referred to as “Sing Core” is the secret ingredient inside the most noted large door designs found in the most exclusive locations throughout the United States, and the world at large.

What makes Sing’s core so special?

High Precision

When you start welding on a modern steel door, you will lose the precision of that door, as welding may be an effective way to join steel components structurally, but it damages and distorts the steel in the process. Sing’s patented steel fabrication process does not use heat or welding of any kind which preserves the integrity of the steel throughout, and Sing’s core is already high precision, sporting tolerances of +/- .006-inch.

Lightweight

The issue of heavy weight is the first thought that comes to mind as Sing’s core is so effective at reducing the weight of the otherwise overweight modern steel pivot doors, which results in a door that can be shipped less expensively, easier to handle in the shop and on the job site, and requires much less expensive “heavy duty” hardware to accommodate these modern steel exterior doors with Sing Core inside. Whatever the steel weighs (+ 10%) will be the weight of the door. The heaviest gauge you would need is 18G, and 20G is best and looks like a solid steel blank.

Stronger than Steel

Sing’s revolutionary technologies empower contemporary architects, door designers, the biggest and best companies to provide their clientele with modern stainless steel entry doors that are lightweight yet stronger than steel pound for pound. Sing Core was tested to far exceed 660 PSI.

How can 20 Gauged steel be so much stronger? Why? See unbreakable glass:

 

 

 

Glass stronger than steel? Even hitting unbreakable mirror with a hammer does not break.

While solving the issues associated with weight and strength would be surpass the expectations of anyone looking for such a solution prior to Sing’s invention, there are other advantages to having Sing Core incorporated within your modern steel door design.

Fully Insulated

While building a torsion box door might be a enough to handle the weight requirements, Sing fills the voids, which world normally be left open, with rigid recycled foam which offers any such door the ability to offer insulation for both climate control and sound deadening qualities.

50-year Warp-free Guarantee

Only doors made with Sing’s core inside can be guaranteed not to warp, bend, twist, or otherwise fail (including structure) for 50 years. We know of no other company can do that.

That’s why the biggest and most renowned door companies in the world say,

“There was just no way it could be done before we had Sing’s core.”

Of course, steel is not the only metal used to make metal pivot doors, aluminum pivot doors are also among the more popular contemporary metal doors.

Sing Core specializes in contemporary metal front doors made in the united states aluminum door modern metal door designs. Though most are commercial aluminum door pivot door applications, aluminium pivot front doors are becoming increasingly popular in high-end residential projects as the are growing in popularity amidst other architectural modern metal front door designs.

What’s the number 1 use of Sing Metal Pivot Doors?

No matter whether the installation is in a high end multimillion dollar home, or a commercial application, the highest and best use of your Sing metal pivot door is as an impressive pivot front door.

Pivot Front Door

Pivot front doors are more impressive when they are stylishly finished, but even more impressive than the exterior material used, the size of the metal pivot door is even more important. The emphasis on being large and oversized plays an important role in the first impression of anyone viewing a large pivot door the first time you lay eyes on the project.

The most significant highly memorable feature of any structure is the visual impact of a large, oversized pivot door. In fact, the bigger, the better. The height, the width and the thickness of your pivot front door makes all the difference.

Metal Pivot Door Detail

The detail of the metal pivot door is invaluable, and every detail will contribute to the success or failure of your pivot front door. A large metal pivot door, while it is very impressive, does pose a number of problems associated with such a large monolithic structure. The first hurdle is in the managing of the weight of a large metal pivot door. To make it out of solid metal, is generally not practical, because the sheer weight of the large pivot door will create problems for the pivot door hardware as well as the frame and structure surrounding the big metal pivot door. The answer lies in Sing Core’s ability to build a

Lightweight Metal Pivot Door

Reducing the weight of your metal pivot door significantly reduces the cost of the pivot door hardware (as it is calculated based on the weight of the door) which can cost many times the cost of the pivot door itself. This also reduces the cost of shipping, handling and installing an otherwise heavy pivot door. While there are other options for dealing with the issue of weight of a particular pivot door, none are more dimensionally stable or

High Strength Metal Pivot Door

Sing Core is the only method of creating a lightweight, high strength metal pivot door. The strength is achieved by starting with a patented torsion box substructure where the otherwise empty boxes are filled with rigid insulation and sandwiched between two sheets of plywood to provide a solid composite structural core which delivers unparalleled warp resistance and strength (660 PSI). Not only are these metal pivot doors lightweight and incredibly strong, they are the only metal doors that can come with a

50 Year Warp-free Guarantee

That’s right. Your professional Sing metal pivot door can be lightweight, high strength and guaranteed not to warp- bend, twist of otherwise fail for 50 years, including a full structure warranty against any other potential failure.

Metal Pivot Entry Doors

Your metal pivot entry door caries along with it a great deal of responsibility, which makes it a security door, either as an intentional specification, or implied as a security barrier. So, it is imperative that your pivot entry doors are strong enough to ward off security compromises as well as being fully

Insulated Metal Pivot Doors

Every Sing metal pivot door is fully insulated to deliver the best climate control and sound deadening capabilities. This insulation is important because in most, if not all cases, your pivot entry door separates two extremes, one being the exterior surface area facing the elements as in the case of an exterior pivot front door, while the other side faces the structure’s interior, which could be vastly different, especially in terms of extreme weather conditions.

Lightweight High Strength Eco Friendly Metal Pivot Doors

Pivot Door Line DrawingLightweight High Strength Eco Friendly Metal Pivot Doors

When professionals seek out extraordinary, unique and/or oversized modern steel doors the most conscientious purveyors settle on a Sing Core metal pivot door.

While exquisitely masterful in their design, modern metal pivot doors present many challenges.  The first challenge to overcome is that of excess weight. Due to the size of the door – if it is constructed simply of metal – the door is just not practical due to its excessive weight.

Contemporary modern steel doors are available in many colorsWhat you want is an

Extraordinary metal pivot door with a unique, bold and striking appearance

(see samples of contemporary metal pivot door finishes to the right…)

That has these characteristics:

  • Lightweight
  • High strength
  • Eco-friendly
  • Affordable

To combat this challenge door manufacturers seek out composite materials to incorporate into the design of the metal pivot door to deal with the heaviness of the door that causes a strain on the structural integrity of the frame, the hardware and project overall.

Solid steel pivot doors, while impressive, are just not practical, yet engineers have found ways to circumvent the obstacles in an effort to retain the appearance of being a solid steel pivot door.

Modern steel pivot door finish exampleThe next challenge to overcome is that of strength. By compromising the metal pivot door’s integrity by not being constructed of solid metal, other cores are considered to reduce the weight of the metal pivot door.

Normal alterations include, using a lesser-strength metal core. Using a metal tube substrate or honeycomb core will match the structure of the metal door, but compromises the overall strength, while resulting in a metal pivot door that is still extremely overweight.

Engineers in search of a more lightweight solution, then consider composite materials to fill the core of your metal pivot door. These include natural solutions, like wood, or manufactured solutions, like foam. While wood products are an option, if solid, are still too heavy to result in a lighter weight solution, and still cannot compare to the strength of a solid steel door. And though foam is lightweight, it simply has no structural integrity and fails the test of strength altogether. Also, over time, these core components tend to lose their integrity, and rarely (if ever) produce an end product that is true flat.

Another consideration is that of excessive energy and harm to the environment expended in the creation of your metal pivot door. The process of creating a metal pivot door with metal interior components requires a lot of wasted energy consumption and highly-skilled laborers (welders) that not only makes the door non-eco-friendly, but results in a very expensive end product.
