How to Build a High-End Stile and Rail Impact Door

Being in the business of helping the biggest door manufacturers and high-end millworks building the best doors in the world, we thought we might let you in on a little secret. Sing Core is world renowned for building the best enormous doors that are lightweight, high strength, fully insulated, and guaranteed to perform warp-free for 50 years. But did you know that we also make the world’s strongest lightweight and insulated stile and rail doors?

The popularity of stile and rail doors has been around for years because, number one, they look amazing. They have a unique appearance as they are manufactured of panels of various sizes. The most popular, and it is the one you are most likely to think of when you think of a stile and rail door, is the six-panel door.

Hands down, this is by far the most popular design. The traditional six panel door is made up of 15 individual wood pieces with alternating grain orientation and all the components are assembled by varying means depending on the application of the door.

If the best feature of the stile and rail door is the undeniable appearance of the door, the second-best feature of the stile and rail door is it’s ability to stay relatively straight over the life of the door. This is accomplished by varying the grain orientation of all the individual panel pieces, which push and pull against each other, unlike a traditional solid slab door which can move wildly at any time or according to any change in the environment.

But the biggest disadvantages include very low insulation value. This means they are not well suited for climate control or sound reduction, and for high-end clients, though they love the appearance of the panel doors, they are not very strong.

If you build stile and rail doors, you may need to know how new technology can lower your labor costs and increase your productivity when building all types, styles, and designs of doors. Sing Core has done it and proven it backed by the best guarantee in the industry.
We can help you:

  • Meet your production needs – Fast Delivery

The Sing solution is to build your stile and rail door on top of the patented Sing Panel Door Substrate invented by Peter Sing. Sing’s substrate is lightweight, high strength, fully insulated and comes back by the only

50-year Warp-free Guarantee

in the door industry.

Now, you do not have to settle for a weak stile and rail door because your stile and rail door can have Sing Core inside.

How to Build a Stile and Rail Impact Door

The first step is to start with Sing’s patented core which is built of small metric vertical grain torsion box where the voids are filled with foam for insulation, and this is sandwiched between two stress skins.

The next stage is where the expertise of the millworks and door manufacturers come in. Instead of manufacturing the door out of individual pieces of wood stuck together, the panel design elements, as in our six-panel door option shown here, are added to the surface of the door.

This gives you the appearance of the traditional six panel that we all have come to love, but if your six-panel door has Sing Core inside, you have the lightweight for panel doors of enormous size, or adjustable weight for smaller doors, with all the insulation and incredible unbreakable strength.

Sing says, “If you kick a traditional stile and rail door you will break the door, but

“If you kick my door, you will break your leg.”

(Don’t try this at home.)

This is just the beginning. Sing can help you make any kind of door. Sing Core is featured in all kinds of doors and is highly sought after when creating replacement doors is historical restorations, especially if they are large doors which are problematic for maintenance because they do not have Sing Core inside. We do not sell our products to homeowners, door stores, or door shops. We do not sell our products to general contractors without door finishing facilities or capabilities. We mainly deal with door manufacturers and millworks which have experience to build high-end doors.

Problem Solved.
