What Are Sing Honeycomb Panels?

Sing Honeycomb is a sandwich panel composite material with built in structural grids. Our grids are made of vertical grain renewable veneer wood fiber, and foam. We construct our Singcore in a fashion similar to torsion box technology most commonly found in the airplane industry. This technology is what allows our panels remain strong, lightweight, and flat without denting, cracking, and warping. See a comparison here. Inventor Peter Sing uses this torsion box technology, along with wood fiber and foam to create patented Sing Honeycomb: the incredibly strong, true flat, lightweight, renewable composite material of the future. Check out our products section to see a few different applications.

Sing Honeycomb sandwich panels are strong, flat, and lightweight. A  4’ x  8’ x 1 ½” panel with 1/8 “ Luan skins, and solid wood edging weighs in at about 55 lbs. A standard sheet of plywood weighs in at about 96 lbs.

Sinc Core panels are resistant to rot Rot Resistant
Even without coating, Sing Honeycomb sandwich panels outlast plywood, solid wood, MDF, and particle board. Plywood and engineered wood rot crack because of the weak glue layers. Sing Honeycomb panels last because underneath the skins lie Singcore, which keeps the panels flat through torsion box technology, and therefore doesn’t allow the panel to crack.

Going Green

Environment & Economy Friendly

How is Sing Honeycomb “Green”, and why is it the most earth-friendly way to use both natural and man-made materials?

LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) provides a “cradle to grave” measurement of a product’s environmental impacts from raw material extraction and manufacturing through distribution, use, maintenance, and disposal. An obvious example is a coffee or tea cup made of Styrofoam compared to a coffee mug made of the same material but enclosed in a solid container. Solo cups are only used once then disposed of after use, filling our landfills unnecessarily. Imagine that the same Solo cup material put into a permanent coffee mug, could last ten years without being replaced. Sing Honeycomb protects the foam inside durable wood frameworks. LCA studies show that using wood is less harmful to the environment than steel or concrete in terms of embodied energy, global warming n potential, air emissions, water emissions, and solid waste production. Sing Honeycomb core structure is made of 100% natural vertical grain wood veneer. This sets us apart from our counterparts who use only paper, particle board, aluminum, and plastic. Here at Sing Honeycomb, environmentally friendly construction is our mission.

Green-eco-friendly-sing-coreLow Energy Production

Sing’s patented manufacturing process is the most efficient and economical way to make sandwich panels with a veneer torsion box core. The materials used in Sing Honeycomb Sandwich Panels use low energy to produce. The adhesive used in Sing Honeycomb Panels is produced in a much more efficient way than the minerals for nails are mined. The veneer is made of scrap material from Washington mills and the foam core is 20% recycled.

Renewable

Sing Honeycomb core structure is made of natural vertical grain wood veneer. This sets us apart from our counterparts who make cores with particle board. It requires energy to break wood down into pulp and reconstruct it into particle board. Veneer uses the natural strength of the wood fiber. Life Cycle Assessment studies show that using wood veneer is less harmful to the environment than steel or concrete in terms of embodied energy, global warming potential, air emissions, water emissions, and solid waste production. Here at Sing Square Log Homes, environmentally friendly construction is our mission.

Non-Toxic

The structural glue and finishing stains that we use are all non-toxic and formaldehyde free.

Recycled

Our foam core has a recycled content of 20% and is 100% recyclable.

Energy Saving

Insulated, draft-free sandwich panels save your heating costs Sing has a long term stable R-Value. Sing Sandwich panels assemble and install quickly, saving you man power and time.

Long Lasting

Sing torsion box sandwich panels are warrantied for ten years*, but may last much longer. This means Sing products will not need replacement or disposal for many years, cutting down on the resources used to manufacture panels. The foam used in Sing Honeycomb Core Panels comes with a 20-year thermal performance warranty, dimensional stability, compressive strength, and water resistant properties. See instructions for repair and recycling.

This is a Sing Overhead Garage Door Panel compared next to a typical steel overhead garage door panel. Same size and thickness but as you can see the steel panel buckles with only a few pounds put on it while the Sing Panel holds almost all of Inventor Peter Sings weight without any problem.

The advantages of using SingCore blocks as dunnage and Sing panels for veneer and plywood holding trays:

The super-wide and lightweight super-strong and high compression strength SingCore blocks evenly distribute the weight and allow easy access for forklifts. This minimizes the opportunity for damaging high quality, expensive veneer, plywood, and other sheet goods.

Sing panels come 4 ft x 8 ft x 2.75 inches thick and will work with Sing dunnage to enhance product quality and make your factory happier.

You may purchase Sing panels to cut into the desired width of strips to use as Sing dunnage.

Celina Dill Tiny House Blog

“Learning about Sing Panels completely changed the way I look at building.”

— Celina Dill, Tiny House Blogger

See pictures at her blog and in our gallery.

Yes, Sing Core does make the best reinforced structural insulated panels (RSIP) for use in Tiny House applications as walls, floors, ceilings and roofs. We have a huge desire to support the tiny house industry but be aware that we only offer Sing Panels for tiny house construction to professional distribution channels. Since we offer no support for our products (besides what is readily available via our web site). Our operation is not setup to sell our products to people in need of retail customer service. We suggest that you seek answers to any questions about how to use Sing panels by consulting with your engineer, architect, builder or contractor.

Note: We do occasionally offer products direct to the do it yourselfer, like Tiny House panel Kits or Tiny House Surplus Panels. Though we may provide you with the materials, we offer no how-to support to the DIY enthusiast except that which is available via our Tiny House FAQ (frequently asked questions) and other online resources.
