Pocket Door

Pocket doors have become an integral part of modern architectural design.  Despite the many advantages of pocket doors, they do present unique challenges in both the manufacturing and the installation process.

About Pocket Doors

Pocket doors are desirable as they are invisible in the opened position as the pocket sliding doors are hidden away in cavities within the walls in one, or two opposing, wall(s). Pocket doors serve as a retractable room divider, functioning as an elegant and effective method to separate one large space or two adjoining spaces, while the sliding door divider(s) disappear(s) into the wall.

Proceed with caution, as pocket doors can be hugely problematic if they move according to changes in the surrounding environment. A warped pocket door will damage the finish as it rubs against neighboring surfaces and if it bends or cups too much can get lodged inside the wall, and the bigger the pocket door, the greater likelihood of warping.

There are many reasons to have your pocket doors made with Sing Core but the number 1 reason is to stop worrying about warped pocket doors once and for all by specifying

Sing Core Inside Your Pocket Door

Thanks to inventor Peter Sing’s patented and patent-pending large pocket door technologies, you can have an Eco-friendly pocket door that is lightweight, high strength, fully insulated for sound deadening and climate control, covered by Sing’s

50 Year Warp-free and Structure Guarantee

There is no other way to build a high precision (Sing Core tolerance is +/- .006 in.) sustainable pocket door that can remain straight and true, spanning the test of time.

The Best Pocket Doors

Sing Core has become known for making some of the largest, most impressive sliding doors on the market.  Pocket doors are sliding doors that slide into a pocket in the wall.  Certain customers have come to know Sing Core, not only for our sliding doors, but also for our magnificent pocket doors.  Introducing the best pocket doors!

Pocket Door Challenges

The concept of pocket doors seems simple very simple.  They are similar to sliding doors in that they slide on tracks and typically use rollers to open and close.  The big difference is that they slide into a pocket that has fixed dimensions inside the wall.  If the door warps or skews, the door cease to function.  You will not be able to open or close the door because warping will change the dimensions of the door.

Warp Free Pocket Door

Over decades, we have developed our patented and patent pending materials that allow for super strong, light weight, warp free door construction.  Warping and skewing present significant problems for pocket doors, because pocket doors must slide into a fixed space inside the wall.  Any deviation from specifications will prevent the door from fitting into the space.  When this happens, your door will cease to function.  You will need to buy a new door, change out your hardware that may bend or break as a result of door malfunction.  In some cases, you also need to rebuild your door frame or your walls when they are ruined from doors being opened and closed.

But we have solved all of the problems associated with large pocket doors and large sliding doors.  When you use Sing Core products, you not only get a door that exceeds AWI standards in terms of warpage, you also get a door that’s guaranteed against warping for 50 years.  Because of our special design methods, you will get a door that ensures proper functionality for decades.

Large Pocket Doors

The larger the door the bigger the challenge.  Large pocket doors are more susceptible to warping.  In order to function properly, they must be specially designed to resist warping.  Larger doors must be specially constructed so that they are warp free on installation, as well as, over time.

 

Ultra High Strength – Large pocket door must be exceptionally strong to stand up to the most rigorous use.  At Sing Core, we have revolutionized door strength with Peter Sing’s patented and patent pending technology that allows us to build doors that are very high strength, tested independently at over 660 PSI.

 

Super Light Weight – Up to 90% lighter than solid wood doors.  Sing Core specially engineered core uses Peter Sing’s revolutionary design to bring a solid door strength to doors that allows for super light weight performance.

 

Straight/Warp Free – Specially designed stiffeners built into our doors make sure your doors are warp free over the long haul for better performance and function.

 

Structurally Stable – With our groundbreaking process, we can make doors that are built exactly to your specifications, and will not skew of shift over time.  That way, you have a door that functions worry free for decades.

 

Eco-friendly – We support sustainability by using 100% renewable, eco-friendly materials, so our products are better on the environment.

 

Guaranteed – When it comes to guarantees, no company on the market can do better.  Our Sing Core Professional Panels are used for doors and other high end applications where stability and precision are of the utmost importance.  All of our Sing Core Professional panels come with a whopping 50 Year Guarantee against warping, cracking, breaking, and skewing.  Name one other company who can do this.  Most companies don’t even offer a one year guarantee, but we can do this because our products have such a strong track record of performance.

 

No one can make panels as large, yet warp free like we can!  You have our guarantee on that.

 

Proudly Made in America

All of our products are 100% made in the USA.  We take pride in supporting our country.  That’s why you won’t find any products that aren’t made in America here.  We also use high quality inputs that are sourced from local suppliers.

Door Skins

Our door system allow you to specify almost any skin for your doors.  We specialize in high quality wood and metal doors.  We have several options depending on your budget.  Our paint grade ply option is our most economical option.  Next is our hardwood veneer option.  Mahogany, oak, walnut, and alder are popular.  We also use 1/8″ wood stave on our highest end option, which gives you a solid wood appearance, but has our specially engineered core to maintain the light weight feature our doors are famous for.  We also make metal doors.  In our metal doors category, we specialize in hot rolled and cold rolled steel, but we also have a very popular aluminum option.

Greater Sliding Doors

One of the greatest attributes of your sliding door is the actual sliding performance of the sliding door, especially closet doors. See our new C Series line of Affordable Barn Door and Sliding Closet Doors.

Certainly, upon installation, your wood sliding door or interior pocket doors may perform superbly… but for how long?

It may be important for you to seek out how to make a sliding door that has a high level of performance. And what are the benefits that will increase the performance of your sliding door? Consider:

greater-sliding-sliding-door

1. True flat straight and will stay flat
2. Lightweight 1/3 the weight (or more)
3. High strength stronger than steel lb. for lb.
4. Insulated starting at R3
5. Sound-deadening starting at SCT 30
6. Resistant to warp, twist & rot to meet your specifications
7. Longevity built to last for centuries
8. Guaranteed 10 to 50 year guarantee
9. Eco-friendly sustainable true green technology

Only one door company can deliver a sliding door that delivers high marks in all those important features. See our comparison chart comparing Sing Core doors panels to other door core materials.

Non warping wood bi fold sliding doors insulated room dividers sound deadeningSo if you’re looking for closet ideas, sliding closet doors or double closet doors for your wardrobes that are true flat and stay flat without warping or twisting, then you might consider the Sing Core alternative.

Our industrial sliding doors and marine sliding doors are specially designed to survive the rigorous changes in the elements including exposure to extreme weather conditions.

The secret lies within the core of the sliding door which is basically one of our honeycomb panels (which is also available in aluminum honeycomb panels) that is the foundation for the superior performance of sliding doors that must remain perfectly straight to reduce maintenance over time.

Even though any Sing sliding door can be finished in any flat exterior building material, the aluminum sliding door is extremely popular and can easily have any other surface material, like any wood species, concrete, glass, FRP, HPL, and can be made to be water-resistant or bullet-proof.

The Sing sliding door is not only a light door that reduces strain and wear on the door hardware, but it is also stronger than metal hanging sliding doors and even make magnificent plastic sliding doors.

And when it comes to big sliding doors, our custom oversize sliding doors continue to deliver the best results enjoyed by the top millworks and door companies in the world service the most demanding high-end users.

Case Studies

 

Title: Steam Room Door

Client: Pizza Company

Product: Sing Panels

Challenge:The client needed doors that resist moisture and close securely. He also needed the doors to withstand frequent use at a business.

Sing Solution:Sing Core doors are flat and straight enough to keep humidity from leaving the steam room. Water resistant coating was applied to protect the door, preventing it from warping and rotting.

Customer Quote:

“We had purchased two of your panels to use as sliding doors for one of our steam rooms. To date they are working great.” Kenny B.


 

Title: Children’s Room

Client: Tremain Construction

Location: Washington State

Product: Sing Panels

Challenge: The family needed a large divider for their living room. It needed to be lightweight so that the kids could open and close it easily.

Sing Solution:Sing Core panels are light enough for a small child to move and easy to assemble.  The family finished the doors with chalkboard paint to make it kid-friendly.

Customer Quote:

“As you can see, the photo below was taken right after install and finishing completed, still construction stuff in the area. The other picture is after the owners moved in and their kids started using the door, which is covered with blackboard paint; it becomes a moving mural in the space.” -P
