Pivot Hinge Door

Sing Core has been supplying the only warp-free pivot door substrates that allows the best pivot door companies to offer their high end clients an exterior pivot front door of any size that can be included in their standard warranty work (most high end millworks offer a warranty on their work for one year or more, with the exception of large pivot doors over 7 ft. tall which tend to fail at the first sing of climate change) because if your pivot hinge door has patented “Sing Core inside,” it is covered by our 50 year warp-free guarantee. This enables the millwork, pivot door company, custom pivot door manufacturer and their clients, all to breathe easier, without having to worry about large pivot door pivot hinge challenges.

The only 50 year warp-free guarantee and full structure warranty

Due to the characteristics of the Sing Core inside the best pivot doors, your pivot door can feature a pivot hinge of any type or style which may be problematic when attempting to accommodate a large pivot door without Sing Core inside. Attributes of pivot hinge doors with Sing Core inside include lightweight (a fraction the weight of other solid core pivot doors), high strength (660 PSI, stronger than steel pound for pound), high precision (+/- .006 in. tolerance), high performance (long life without fail) and Eco-friendly (made in the USA with formaldehyde free adhesives, very little energy consumption or waste, with the sustainable use of natural resources).

Large pivot doors made with the absence of Sing Core are likely to fail. This is why they are normally noted on the contract and excluded from the other items on the job covered by the contractor’s warranty.

The lighter weight of the pivot door opens more opportunities for creatively applying various pivot door hinges which make the resulting pivot door even more impressive or adding a commercial door pivot hinge. The offset pivot hinge is gaining popularity among pivot door manufacturers and by utilizing Sing Core inside your pivot door, you can save substantially due to the lighter weight of your pivot door as pivot door hinges are determined by the weight of your pivoting door. Heavy pivot doors require a heavy duty pivot hinge, while your Sing pivot door can use a lighter weight pivot hinge.

Heavy duty pivot hinges are expensive and can be many times the cost of your pivot front door. That’s another reason why building your pivot hinge door with Sing Core makes so much more sense. Pivot door hardware companies, such as rixson pivot door hardware are available in many styles including top hung, offset pivot door sets as well as the more conventional center hung pivot hinge.

Pivot entry doors can come in a wide variety of types and styles and can be made to outperform any other type of pivoting door including aluminium pivot doors, any available type of natural wooden pivot doors or even a stainless steel pivot door. Your pivot hinge door could be made from any available flat building material, including woods or metals.

If you’re tired of dealing with the constant maintenance issues with dealing with large pivot hinge doors over time, then maybe starting off at the right place would be your most advantageous move by specifying your door has, “Sing Core inside.” If it’s too late, and you’re already struggling with problematic pivot hinge doors, no problem. Sing Core pivot doors are the most in demand replacement doors in the United States and increasingly throughout the world, as Sing Core products are routinely exported worldwide.

Pivot Doors Straight Talk

Years in the making, finally Sing Core has come out with the ultimate solution for Eco-friendly pivot doors made of any material and any size weighing a fraction of other door cores. This revolutionary patented solution has made Sing Core the number one resource for large pivot doors that are lightweight, high strength and can be guaranteed to remain warp-free for 50 years, as well as full structure warranty. No other large pivot door solution can match the power of Sing Core. Here’s the latest straight talk about pivot doors:

Pivot Doors Straight Talk

The only 50 year warp-free guarantee and full structure warranty

As the demand for large pivot doors is on the increase, the bigger they are, the more impressive they are, also, the more apt they are to fail due to door warp. Let’s face it, a door that is not straight and true is of little use as a door at all.

It is imperative for large pivot doors to remain straight and true, and the design team at Sing Core has created a full battery of patented and patent pending solutions to keep any large pivot door, made of any material perfectly straight, far exceeding AWI standards for flatness. The true flat experts at Sing Core have the knowledge and ability to create large pivot doors will not warp, eliminating the biggest complaint about pivot doors.

So, if you want a straight pivot door, the only way to get one made and guaranteed to remain warp-free for 50 years is to do what most contemporary architects, designers and engineers do, and that’s to specify that you want your doors to have, “Sing Core inside.”

Pivot Door Problems

Large pivot doors with Sing Core inside also solve other problems facing architects and designers, including, but not limited to…

Heavy Pivot Doors

Large pivot doors are big and heavy in weight. The large size and the heavy weight is problematic for a number of reasons. First of all, you must find a custom door manufacturer or millwork to take on such a project in the first place. Anything that is large is going to be difficult to create and manipulate through the building process just to create the mammoth door in the first place. Then you have to be able to move the door from the factory to the truck, using a combination of manpower and heavy equipment. Then transport the large pivot door from the factory to the job site. Once at the site, more manpower and heavy equipment is required to unload and move the door to where it will be installed. Installers now have to deal with the door, moving and fine tuning it to fit the space and attach the appropriate heavy duty pivot door hardware which can cost many times the price of the pivot door.

Heavy Duty Pivot Door Hardware

Expensive heavy duty pivot door hardware is required as the hardware is determined by the weight of the door. Even though this hardware is designed to handle a heavy weight pivot door, the straight talk is, if the door is used regularly, the hardware will start to breakdown and fail over time.

Large Pivot Door Maintenance

Which brings us to maintenance on the large pivot doors; yes, your large pivot door is impressive and leaves a great first impression but the more consistent lasting impression is left upon the pivot door’s owner who must bear the cost of constant repair and maintenance over the life of the otherwise magnificent large pivot door. As huge pivot doors are used, they cause stress and strain, not only on the hardware, but also the structure, creating the need for maintenance and repair on the pivot door for warp, the hardware as it deteriorates, and the structure for stress and strain.

Large Pivot Door Insulation

In most large pivot doors, little thought is given to the insulation value of the door. While large pivot doors are commonly thicker than their hinged cousins, the large pivot doors may not provide for energy efficient handling of thermal separation or elimination of sound penetration.

Large Pivot Door Danger

If you have a large pivot door, operating it may be problematic, especially when delicate little fingers are around when the pivot door is opened and closed. Large pivot doors are so heavy that there is the danger of injury to anyone, not just children, when the doors are in motion.

Pivot Door Solutions

Thanks you Sing Core, you can save money and have a better large pivot door experience over time, as the Sing solution is applied. Here are some of the solutions you can expect by specifying that your pivot door has, “Sing Core inside.”

Lightweight Pivot Doors

If your pivot door is built with Sing Core inside, it can weigh a fraction of the weight of any other solid core pivot door. The energy savings in just the creation and transport of your Sing pivot door help to make it more ecologically responsible, using less energy to create, ship and handle. But there’s more…

Lightweight Pivot Door Hardware

Because the type of pivot door hardware is based on the pivot door’s weight, a lighter weight door requires a pivot hinge which is matched. Real cost savings can be realized by being able to use the less expensive pivot door hardware, bring the cost of the hardware way down.

High Strength Pivot Doors

Your Sing pivot door is very strong as it was university-tested and rated at 660 PSI in strength, making it stronger than steel pound for pound. This superior strength is due to the patented insulated reinforced vertical grain torsion box core. Without Sing Core inside , you are limited to the ability of the material used to maintain the pivot door integrity over time.

Sing Pivot Door Maintenance

When your pivot doors have sing Core inside they are also nearly free of regular maintenance. If you have a professional Sing pivot door that does not warp, then you possess a large pivot door which can be guaranteed not to warp, bend, twist, cup, or otherwise fail for 50 years. Plus, if the door is damaged for any reason, it can be quickly and easily repaired on site (often without have to dismantle or remove the door) without compromising the pivot door’s strength or integrity. In addition, the lightweight of your Sing pivot door, means much less stress and strain on the hardware.

Sing Pivot Door Installation

Being so lightweight reduces costs and time by being so lightweight. Due to the bulky size several people will need to manipulate the door, but no heavy equipment will be needed because the crew can easily maneuver the large pivot door without much trouble. In fact, we commonly hear back from the installers about how they couldn’t believe how light and easy to work with large pivot doors with Sing Core inside are.

Insulated Pivot Door

Sing Core pre-packs your large pivot door with insulation wall to wall inside the torsion box structure imbuing your large pivot with increased ability for climate control and also sound deadening capabilities that are hard to find in other large pivot doors. If you’re thinking about separation between room, or particularly a pivot front door, the added insulation factor is of huge benefit and included in every Sing pivot door blank at no extra charge. Insulation upgrades are available per your specification.

Sing Pivot Door Safety and Security

Due to the increased insulation and high strength of your pivot door that has Sing Core inside, you can enjoy a greater sense of safety and security. The high strength will prevent breaching the door from unwanted guests. These are often used as impact doors. If you kick other lightweight pivot doors, they could easily fail and offer egress to an otherwise secure environment, but if you kick a Sing pivot door you will not break the door. You are more likely to break your leg and the sound deadening characteristics inhibits eavesdropping.

In the event a child, or anyone, gets their hand or fingers caught in a Sing large pivot door in motion, the likelihood of surviving such an event is much more likely as less damage will occur thanks to the Sing solution being so much lighter in weight than other large pivot doors.

Shouldn’t your pivot doors have Sing Core inside?

Oversize Entrance Pivot Doors

“If we could build this giant warp-free wooden pivot entry door, we can build your door.” ~ Peter Sing

For thousands of years pivot doors have been the upscale preference of the most exotic high-end large oversize entrance doors relying heavily on the entry door hardware, specifically the pivot hinge, to manage the functionality of the pivot door.

Due to the size and weight of the conventional modern pivot door the heavy duty hinges and pivot door hardware could account for up to half the cost of the pivot door (e.g., a low end pivot door could cost $3,000, half the price will pay for the hardware due to the heavy weight), creating a high price point as well as being expensive to transport, handle and install.

Yet, the most demanding clients desire this elegant outswing exterior door to make an extreme visual impact for the primary access point of their structure (while bringing the outside in and the inside out by way of the architect’s modern design concept) regardless of price to command attention via first impression.

Pivot doors may be the most expensive designer doors but there’s no escaping the luxurious feel that they lend to designs by top architects who help to create the most leading edge structure designs by featuring the best exterior doors.

Since hardware is of huge importance in a pivot door’s design and implementation, there are many options to consider including offset pivot hinge, commercial door hinges, heavy duty door hinges and center pivot door hardware in your pivoting door system.

  • Precision
  • Performance
  • Maintenance

2. The Frame

Will your pivot door be a solid one-piece material construction, or will it be framed or unframed?

Many options about for the substance of your pivot door, first – the most heavy and likely the most unstable – is solid construction, then framing. Framing your pivot door can be with wood or metal, like steel or extruded aluminum. Wood will move Framing with metals, like a conventional steel door, may not meet high performance specifications due to welding creating imperfections in the metals.

How Can I Get a Sing Pivot Door?

There are many ways that you can make your pivot door dreams come true.

1 Architect

Architects have access to Sing technology and are specifying Sing Core in their pivot door designs – especially if they are large pivot doors – that can be manufactured by their favorite millworks.

2 Millworks

Most one-of-a-kind custom pivot doors are created by revered craftspeople and woodworkers who create hand crafted pivot doors for exclusive clientele.

3 Door Companies

Any door company can use Sing Panel as the substrate for your pivot door. Though many do not feature the Sing Pivot Door as a standards catalog item, in most cases you can special order your pivot door with Sing Core technology.

4 Contractor

Sing pivot doors panels are sold without hardware installed and unfinished. Our door panels are manufactured for mill works to install hardware and finish. We do not recommend shipping Sing door panels the job site for installing hardware and finishing. This is not the best way to treat a high end door such as a large pivot door made with SingCore. We highly recommend the GC work with millwork professionals to finish at their facility (except some special restrictions).

We believe each professional has it’s own specialized knowledge just like we do not expect an architect to install the door, instead using a highly trained GC.

Since the weight of your Sing pivot door will be a fraction the weight of a solid (or framed) pivot door you can save cash that would have to be invested in heavy duty pivot door hardware that could account for half the cost of any other pivot door.

Plus you save on transportation and installation costs, just like our clients (see clients list) and enjoy maintenance-free high performance of your pivot door.
