Lightweight Strong 3/4 inch MDF Torsion Box Cabinetry Panels

Sing Sandwich cutaway exposing patented Sing CorePatented Sing Core is bringing the latest development in lightweight and high strength technology to visit the cabinet industry. Imagine being able to use a lightweight building material that is commensurate with high-tech aerospace technology at 20 percent of the price.

This new cabinetry alternative to MDF 4×8 sheets delivers many times the strength of solid MDF at a fraction of the weight with no headaches. Sing MDF cabinetry panels come in 4×8 and 5×12 sizes in convenient 3/4 inch thickness.

How are 3/4 inch Sing cabinetry panels made?

Start with patented Sing torsion box (2×3 inch grid size) where the voids are filled with recycled rigid foam insulation wall to wall with and sandwich it all between two sheets of 1/8 inch MDF and bond it altogether with formaldehyde-free adhesives for an Eco-friendly lightweight high strength composite MDF panels that out performs any other lightweight building material in terms of strength, weight and longevity.

Compare to other lightweight panel material

Compared to any other lightweight panel building material, like honeycomb panels made of paper honeycomb, aluminum honeycomb, cardboard, or even high-tech aerospace panels (costing five times as much per sheet) Sing 3/4 inch cabinetry panels are a bargain at twice the price.

Secret Ingredient Inside

High precision lightweight high strength warp resistant insulated reinforced torsion box Sing Core high performanceThe secret ingredient inside the Sing 3/4 inch cabinetry panels is the torsion box composite core that is the same product used by the US Navy and other high tech industrial applications where strength and weight are both considerations. This is the same technology used to build large doors – of any size or style – that can be guaranteed not to warp, bend, twist or otherwise fail for a full 50- years.

Imagine having this material inside your cabinetry and/or furniture… Say, “goodbye,” to disposable furniture and heavy cabinetry which are highly desirable qualities sought in aircraft, marine and recreational vehicle platforms for both less weight and less maintenance over time.

Even though plywood and particleboard are fairly standard fare in cabinet shops around the world, certain high end cabinet makers are seeking to embrace this new technology which is the perfect combination of old (torsion box) and new (composite) fine woodworking craftsmanship. Plus (as you undoubtedly already know) both plywood and particle board are heavy and prone to warp and rot; unlike Sing 3/4 inch torsion box cabinetry panels.

Structural integrity

The structural integrity of these hybrid cabinetry panels surpasses anything know in the affordable lightweight composite material and is increasingly finding its place amongst the transportation and general construction categories as an impressive upgrade alternative to plywood or other materials.

Built-in insulation

Sing composite cabinetry panels feature built in insulation (the rigid foam insulation filling the torsion box voids) that is a unique added feature whether you are building cabinets and/or other furniture.

Easy to work with

Standard woodworking tools are all that is required to take full advantage of Sing cabinetry panels, treat them just like you would any standard 4×8 piece of 3/4 inch panel.
Sing cabinetry panels are revolutionizing the industry as they are increasingly being found as a standard commodity in cabinet shops, millworks and furniture manufacturers throughout the United States and the world.

Edges

Sing cabinetry panels have unfinished (exposed, i.e. you can see the core) edges. This is easily remedied by adding edge trim, or closing the edge by any method desired. Also, the core material can easily be routered to accommodate insertion of wood implants where desired or necessary.


Simply CNC router out Sing Cabinetry Panels to insert any desired material.

Pre-built Torsion Box for High-end Craftsmen Available at Lowe’s

Imagine being able to build a torsion box work table – or anything, for that matter – without the time, energy and cost of building the torsion box yourself?

Traditional-Torsion-Box-Diagram

Get your torsion box pre-built for you in 2 ft. x 4 ft. sections from your local Lowe’s Pro Desk.

Sing core torsion box plywood lowes home improvement warehouse

Q: How easy is it to work with?
A: Just use your normal wood working tools and treat it just like you wood any other piece of plywood.

For years, inventor Peter Sing has been providing the military, high-end millworks and architects across the USA (see clients list) with massive torsion box structural panels that are lightweight and stronger than steel pound for pound.

lightweight panel honeycomb high strength guaranteed true flat table topsThe most experienced woodworkers agree that torsion box is the answer to hand-crafting a large wood, straight, structurally-sound table while having some control over the overall weight and responsible use of natural materials.

Sing’s invention revolutionizes the torsion box industry by tweaking the entire torsion box concept combining wood craftsmanship and space-age technology in his factory located in McCleary, Washington, cranking out solid torsion box panels that are proudly made in the USA for his upscale clientele.

Discerning wood workers who are called upon by designers and owners of multi-million-dollar homes face challenges especially when it comes to oversized big doors. While there is no doubt experienced wood workers can make the most beautiful wood doors for their discerning clients, invariably the doors fail if they are large in size due to the inherit nature of the wood itself.

Wood will move and adapt to temperature and moisture causing it to move, compromising the functionality and seal of the most elegant hand-crafted wood door. Diligent woodworkers have sought out sing’s solution to the oversized wood door.

The same scientific solution of reinforced torsion box applies to tables and other structures that can be built without traditional wood framing for furniture or stick-built homes.

Close up side view of exposed torsion box honeycomb foam core sandwich panel

Why Torsion Box?

Because other methods of building a table top are basically inefficient. For instance, a table top built of a solid material will shift and move over time compromising its degree of flatness. Also solid materials that are less likely to move are extremely expensive, heavy and would only be considered for a permanent fixture.

The torsion box table top design gives as flat a surface area as possible while reducing the weight of the table top due to the hollow areas in the center of the boxes. Using a torsion box design, a craftsman can build the most flat surface using 1/10th the solid material.

How do I build a torsion box table top?

DIY tosion box do it yourself how to build torsion boxMaterials needed: Wood for exterior frame, plywood for interior framing, saw, carpenter’s wood glue, cold press (with weight or clamps), meticulous measuring ability, focus, diligence and good minor motor skills.

Basically, you will need to establish the perimeter of your table top with an exterior frame according to the dimensions of your table. This exterior frame is generally made of wood.

The frame is built atop an underlying exterior surface material, most commonly, plywood (many varieties abound).

The most common torsion box material is plywood.

Building wood-framed boxes within the exterior frame wall-to-wall comprises the torsion box grid.

Once your torsion box structure is complete you can adhere top and bottom exterior plywood (referred to as stress skins) to complete your torsion box design.

Is it the perfect torsion box?

Probably not. The problem with traditional torsion box is that there is little or no shear strength, so if the structure is strained with enough horizontal torque the boxes could be compromised causing it to collapse. Plus, being made of wood still invites the base materials to move and give when adjusting to temperature or moisture in the environment.

How to build a better torsion box?

torsion box plywood cutaway sing core lowes home improvement warehouseInspired by traditional torsion box and using his experience gained in the aerospace industry, inventor Peter Sing created a better torsion box.

Materials needed: Wood frame, plywood strips (with grain oriented vertically as opposed to horizontally as used in traditional torsion box), saw, cold press, high-end waterproof formaldehyde-free glue, recycled dense foam that can be precisely cut into boxes.

Here’s how you build a better torsion box:

torsion box animationStart with your wood frame atop a stress skin, just like you would in the traditional torsion box example. This time run your plywood strips three inches apart, side by side, along the length of your exterior frame. (At this point it looks like you might be having mice race for the cheese at the other end, but keep your money in your pocket; there are no mice here.)

Now, place your 3 inch foam cubes between the vertical grain rails. Insert a 3 inch bumper (or stile) to close off the recycled foam completing your first row of interior boxes. Then place another 3 inch foam cube, followed by another bumper. Repeat until the entire interior area is filled wall to wall.

Adhere top and bottom exterior skins and you’re done.

Congratulations; you’ve just built the best torsion box structure ever!

How could you make it even better?

You’ve got to admit, as effective as it is, the tedious process is not only time consuming but expensive. But what if…

super honeycomb 2x4x1 2 ft x 4 ft x 1.5 in Sing Sandwich torsion box panel

2 ft x 4 ft x 1.5 in – no solid edge LT plywood

What if you didn’t have to build the torsion box structure at all?

What if you could buy Sing’s torsion boxes already pre-built for you?

That’s right. Mr. Sing’s factory is cranking out his patented torsion boxes by the truckload, and he’s offering special pre-built torsion box implants that measure 48 in. x 24 in. x 1.5 in. complete with stress skins for you to cut to size, drop into any frame for the perfect torsion box strength and lightweight design.

Torsion Box

Traditional-Torsion-Box-DiagramTorsion box design in woodworking is basically a number of wooden boxes assembled together to make up the core material sandwiched between two sheets of wood. This is a labor-intensive process for craftsmen, but does produce a lighter-than-solid-wood product that has increased strength due to the torsion box interior.

Click for How to Buy Torsion Box Sandwich Panel

Craftsmen have been using torsion box for centuries, but it takes a skilled craftsman hours if not days to create a table… Sing Core provides craftsmen with the torsion box structure pre-built. Doing so allows you to make 50 times more tables or 100 or more Sing Torsion Box 2 in x 12 inch x 8 planks in a single day. Wood products made of patented Sing Torsion Box lumber, panels, posts or beams can be easily mass produced in a small work shop without adding any heavy wood working machines. The labor-saving and high-quality will make it possible to bring the furniture making jobs back home, creating jobs and improving local economies while reducing the impact of imported furniture.

Inventor Peter Sing has taken torsion box technology to the next level, making massive improvements to the primitive, yet effective, torsion box design.

Sing Improvement # 1: Flip the script.

torsion box animationThe first improvement on the traditional torsion box design was so simple that it was merely, “a gift,” as Sing explains. Torsion box grids have always been an effective way to produce a large wooden surface, while retaining some integrity of strength and resulting in a lighter weight end product. “But,” says Sing, “the wood material used to construct the torsion boxes always used horizontal grain.” By reorienting the grain to be vertical, the resulting torsion box became 10 times stronger than the horizontal grain original designs, but he wasn’t done, yet…

Sing Improvement # 2: Fill the void.

The next step was to fill the void with a stable, yet lightweight, material. Recycled foam was the answer. By filling the vacant space in each cavity of the torsion box, edge to edge greatly increased the strength of the torsion box, as well as adding insulation and sound deadening properties, without adding much noticeable weight increase.

Sing Improvement # 3: Fuse the structure.

The final step in Sing’s revolution in torsion box design was to develop a method to bond all the necessary components together resulting in a nearly indestructible, yet solid, lightweight structure. Experimentation led to discovering superior bonding agents for superior adhesion that will not breakdown due to stress on the structure or over time… and this was achieved without the use of formaldehyde or toxic chemicals.

Torsion-Box-Club-617The result is a natural torsion box design combined with recycled materials that could be used as a substrate for nearly any building material, making Sing Torsion Box the composite material of the future.Sing Core is also Eco-friendly, “True green,” Sing calls it because it is all manufactured naturally, with little energy consumption, uses recycled materials with little or no waste. It also reduces the greenhouse effect in fuel expended in the delivery of the material due to being so lightweight. Manpower reduction is also an effective savings due to its lightweight characteristics.

Sing Core is proudly manufactured in the USA in McCleary, Washington, and due to its lightweight attributes can be shipped to any location on Earth at a fraction of the cost of other, traditional solid building materials while maintaining strength over long spans, much stronger than any other natural materials.

Advantage:

You do not have to wait your hardwood supplier ship to you over night from hundreds or thousands miles away, giving you inventory on-demand. All you need is stock to stock some Sing Core Block and you can create any building materials that you need, to your specific dimensions on-the-fly.

Q: Are there any other methods to build hardwood from substrate?

A: There are many type of substrate used as a base to add hardwood staves to create hardwood. It is common for veneer and/or staves to be glued on top or wrapped around with hardwood to make hardwood, but it is very heavy and sometimes unstable, creating movement. The most common substrate used is particle board, followed by MDF, plywood and LVL.

The ideal substrate is honeycomb or lightweight foam to use as substrate, but none of those lightweight materials are able to achieve the strength of Sing Core which when tested in University of Washington reached 660 PSI. Most common honeycombs (such as aluminum honeycomb core, plastic core, and paper core) and foam used in aviation industry are approximately 100 PSI, but the cost is more than 10 times more in comparison to Sing Core, and much heavier than Sing Core. This is the reason Sing Core is the primary choice for high end mill work in USA.

With some basic shop tools, you are able to build your own Sing Planks or even Sing Wood at any thickness or width.

Sing Hardwood

 

Advantage Sing Hardwood:

Maple-Cherry-Oak-VG-Fir-Walnut-Sing-Core1. Hardwood On-demand.

Lightweight Export Beams and Panels for Thailand Skyscraper

We specialize in Large Oversize Doors

We are exporting Sing Core to provide the tallest skyscrapers in Bangkok with the solutions to their design problems.

USA-pre-Bangkok-export

(Photo above, pre-export at home in the USA)

one-man-beam-carry

What design problems do you think they have? Mostly the same problem all large project designers run into, like the complexities of ecologically friendly, lightweight, strength and integrity over long lengths. Sing Core is the superior solution for these obstacles.

SingCore-above-Bangkok-Thailand

Photos here are of a container of Sing Core beams and panels used in the construction of one of the tallest buildings in Bangkok, Thailand. This is likely one of the only patented plywood product to be exported to Asian countries. Why? Much of our plywood is imported because they can manufacture it so inexpensively off-shore. In fact, their prices are so low that American companies have accused them of dumping product to bury the American wood industry, resulting in a 25% import duty on imported plywood products.

Sing-Core-Crane-Bangkok-Thailand

So, think about that… Asia importing Sing panels and beams… The only reason that they would do that is if it was the only way to solve their design problems; and nothing fits the bill like Sing Core.

Fixed3Sing-Core-Long-Carry-Bangkok-Thailand copy

 

From an export point of view, note that the shipment of product is ten times stronger than standard wood product, yet weigh 70 to 80 percent less than the equivalent plywood.

Sing-core-high-in-thailand

In a time when the United States is encouraging you to not to import by charging a 25% tariff on incoming plywood, why not shop at home and consider a structural technology that is far superior not only to import varieties, but nearly any other conventional construction material.

In case you are unaware of the Sing Core technology; here is a basic rundown:

The Sing Core is based on primitive torsion box honeycomb designs, but is exponentially improved upon the basic design.

Sing Core is manufactured with LESS

  • raw materials
  • labor
  • equipment cost.

Our unique manufacturing process requires LESS

  • energy for production
  • space
  • and makes less waste.

Sing Core panels are

  • true flat
  • fully insulated
  • sound deadening
  • lightweight
  • extremely strong
  • last the test of time
  • and are earth friendly.

That is why the supplier of high-end custom-built oversize products to the

  • President
  • Prime Minister
  • Kings
  • and the Pope

has sought out Sing Core as their solution. Yet, we make this technology affordable, even to compete with cheap imports.

If you are currently importing substandard plywood from off-shore, shouldn’t you think about being proud to say, “Made in the USA,” reducing your costs, delivery times and providing your clients with a superior product that is not only eco-friendly but “true green”?

Peter Sing- inventor and president of Sing Core- spent forty years of his life to create this new sandwich honeycomb panel technology and with hard work and great perseverance, he has succeeded in his goal. His next step for his company, is to spread the word out to everyone. Peter Sing believes that people are crazy for settling with heavy, non-versatile, and expensive plywood/particle board when they can use Sing Core’s lightweight, affordable, and reliable honeycomb panels.

Imagine being able to use a lightweight, strong, wooden honeycomb panel that allows you to create anything from basic furniture or large sliding door to an entire house that you live in. But Sing Core is cheaper and friendlier to the environment. Sounds too good to be true, but it’s not, because Sing Core Honeycomb Panels give you that advantage. This new and innovative style of honeycomb panel is so much more than lightweight, strong, and durable; it is long lasting, reliable, simple, and affordable.

Why use thick plywood- that can be difficult to construct with- when you can use the versatile Sing Core honeycomb panels. Through Sing Core, you will have the components to be able to build thousands of Sing Core products, with that eco friendly touch.

 

Pictured to the right is a 1 ton truck on a piece of 1/4″ inch thick Hardy Plank wrapped around our Honeycomb core. it does not crack under the pressure of a 1 ton truck. This is the future economical, concrete home structure. The picture is proof. Can you drive a 1 ton truck over a conventional frame home wall without it cracking??

 

 

Sing Core Honeycomb Panel description:

  • Strength– Is more than 10 times the strength of aluminum honeycomb core. A one inch by one inch grids aluminum core only has 60 psi; Sing Core 2”x 2” grids have reached more than 660 psi, the smallest core possesses more psi strength, but failed the test against Sing Core. Sing Core grid’s sizes range from 2 in x 1.5 inch to 5 in x 5 inch.
  • Sing Core with Application– Starts from 4 lbs. per cubic ft. and the larger the core grids, the lighter it weighs.
  • Dimensionally Stable– Doors made of Sing Core are guarantee to be true flat. Since we assure the flatness of Sing Core doors, our customers haven’t requested any refunds for their purchase. The most popular door that we manufacture are oversized doors (larger than 7 ft. x 3 ft.). We can do any custom size; the largest door/movable wall we sold was shipped to Bangkok, Thailand and was, 32 ft wide x 16 ft tall (four of them to divide a large conference room to several small conference rooms or a banquet hall).
  • Eco Friendly– Sing Core honeycomb panels are made of renewable veneer. The Sing Core panels take less energy to build a strong composite core, lightweight (which take less energy to transport), has longest life span, and it’s environmentally friendly (compare to other type of core such as paper honeycomb, aluminum honeycomb core, and plastic core).
  • Sing Panels- Come complete with solid wood edging, pvc edge, aluminum edge, or open edges.
  • Skin Choice- Several different skins: such as aluminum, FRP, cement, plastic, and wood. Sing Core products are suitable for indoors/outdoors, plus, our panels are waterproof because of the many different varieties of skin and close cell foam to keep the panels completely watertight. There are two types of wood based panels; paint grade and wood grain.
  • Thickness- Sing Core honeycomb panels come in any thickness from 1/2 in. to more than 8 in. size of Sing panels;The largest door/movable wall we build are 32 ft wide x 16 ft in length (It weighs less than 800 lbs App. 1.5 lb per sq ft),With our patented Sing core biscuit layin under each join  which keep the Sing large oversize panel true dimensionally stable without any movement due the the temperature and moisture change (We offer a 10 year structural guarantee) paint grade.

Multiple Sing Panels can be joined together by a variety of methods to create entire structures or large multi-panel projects on-site using a variety of fastening options.

Sing Core Panels are typically Paint Grade- Produced ready to finish by consumers and businesses. Panels are paint grade, not paint ready, which means that the customer may have to putty, sand and prime before painting.

Custom Choices for Wood Grain- There are paint grades, wood grains skin for Sing panel finish treatment, and there are two type of wood grain Sing panel available. Option 1 is veneer/staves and option 2 is strips/planks. Sing plywood skinned panels are used to build doors, floors, walls, table tops, and roofs; It’s the least expensive and the natural plywood has a thin layer of wood veneer on the surface (the advantages are very affordable, can be stained/ shows beautiful wood, difficult to sand, repair, and has tiny join if it is over 4 ft x 8 ft size).

Two Types of Wood Grain- Sing plank- The 1st type is plywood type of wood skin which uses 1/8 inch wood stave of any kind of wood species, pressed on the top of Sing core panel(advantage: wood stave Sing panel can be sand,repair,like solid wood due to the thicker wood surface).click here to see picture. The 2nd type, is Sing wood grain panel glued to the  natural wood stave slice solid wood to 1/8 inch thick then glue on top of Sing torsion box long panel. Sing true wood planks normally range from 7 in. to 10 in., wide x 8 ft. or 10 ft. in length x 1 1/2 inch thick which look more true flat than real solid wood (click here to see pictures), than glued edges. Sing wood planks can form a large oversize door, table, or wood plank. Sing Core panels could be made at any size and thickness. Sing wood planks are light weight, true flat, fully insulated, and sound deadening than solid wood. Sing Core panels look and function better than solid wood which will warp and shrink. (it would be impossible to join solid wood planks to build doors as large as 10 ft wide x 12 ft or larger). See picture of Sing Core Flooring. Natural planks provide beautiful wood and Sing wood panel invention will make it even more beautiful and function better.
