Architectural Specification Substitutes

Due to being the newly invented and possibly the most significant improvement in building materials in the last century, it is not uncommon to see Sing products recommended as substitutes for products in the original specifications initially specified by architects. Even though Sing Core is new, we are not that new and have years of experience to assure or most demanding clients that they only deliver the best to their clients.

Why would you substitute Sing Core?

Eco-friendly

Lightweight high strength torsion box foam core varuiety of thicknesses and wood speciesIn this day and age, it is of primary importance to take into consideration that the impact of your project will have on the earth. Everything we do to help preserve our precious planet is a step toward providing a better world for all life for generations to come. Sing Core’s true green technology is a huge step toward responsible sustainability.

Lightweight

One of important advantages of sing Core is its lightweightedness when compared to other building products. Other traditional building components that can even come close to matching the lightweight characteristics of Sing Core are extremely weak and have little or no structural integrity. This might be acceptable for visual representation upon installation, but may deteriorate rapidly over time, something that you might need to consider in the design process.

Extremely High Strength

Sing Core is super strong, so strong, in fact, that independently tested results from the University of Washington revealed a PSI of 660-to-over-1,100 pounds per square inch of compression strength, which is stronger than steel pound for pound. This is why you see Sing Core substituted in extreme weather, under heavy loads, maintain strength over long spans, blast and bullet proof applications.

True Flat

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERAPrior to the invention of Sing Core it was nearly impossible – or extremely expensive and laborious – to build a true flat door (or any other surface desired to be flat over a long span with little or no framing). In fact, current regulations for flatness allow for a ¼” of deflection over a 6 foot span. Sing Core outperforms any other material and can be combined with wood and other products and still be guaranteed true flat.

Inexpensive

You might be surprised that a building material that is made in the USA cost much less than other composite materials and is so affordable, that it is not priced much more than particle board and can end up being much more inexpensive especially when you factor-in savings in shipping, handling, installation and maintenance costs.

Guaranteed for Life

Sing Core is such a structurally sound building material that it is possibly the only material that can be guaranteed for life, but is designed and built to last for centuries, with little or no deterioration over time, when product is used as specified. When product is properly matched to application, sing Core will not warp, bend, twist or rot, like other materials.

And that only comprises the top half-dozen reasons that people are switching to Sing Core.

As the project owner, you may have just found us on the Internet and want to see Sing Core featured in your project due to all the added benefits. We work hand-in-hand with designers, architects, contractors and homeowners to make sure that you have the right Sing products to match your requirements and specifications. This makes the job safer and more efficient for your general contractor and your architect will thank you for being diligent and for introducing them to Sing Core which they will continue to include in future designs.

Not Just for Doors

true-flat-doors-in-quantity-fast-delivery-coast-to-coast-compareCertainly, we are best known for our door applications, and for many years, people thought of us as a door company because of how superior this material is in that specific application. While we have established ourselves as the perfect door builders – especially when addressing challenging door specifications for oversize, sliding or hinged applications – Sing Core has nearly limitless applications and is featured in many of the most high-end homes. We are the only door that can be guaranteed even after being exposed to weather conditions and no other wood door can be guaranteed true flat.

Rarely does a day go by where we don’t see someone versed in contemporary architecture design who reaches out to Sing Core to solve another issue of strength vs. weight, saving economically by reducing shipping, handling, installation, repair and maintenance costs, and upgrading the overall green value of a project.

If you have just discovered Sing Core, it is not too late to substitute sing products for the traditional products that were originally specified by your architect. We work with architects and designers to make sure that you have the right sing product to match your specifications, meeting (or exceeding) any expectations that you might have.

We can help you with the substitution submittal process and we have staff on-hand with the experience to make sure that your needs are met or exceeded, and the results can be guaranteed for life (per warranty certificate accompanying your guaranteed Sing product).

If you are like many of our users, you will find that once you discover Sing Core, you will start finding solutions to your dreams and ideas that may have been limited by available building materials of the past.

Join the revolution and see our clients list to see some of the most successful business staying on the leading edge of building technologies by embracing the Sing Core advantage.

New Door Technology

Applications -> Building Components -> Doors -> New Door Technology

There is a new concept in Eco-friendly door manufacturing that raises the question:

“Is Sing Door Core a better way to build doors than any other type of door?”

New-French-Door-With-Glass-Lite-Cut-outsSing Core’s patented door core has the unique ability to build a true-flat, weather proof/water tight, lightweight door that is stronger than steel and will remain flat for centuries, covered by our 50 year true flat guarantee (compare to other door companies’ warranties that do not cover when used in exterior applications). This new technology allows nearly limitless customizations allowing clients to design any door imaginable in any configuration, style, appearance and/or feature any flat surface material. Our French doors come complete with custom lite opening cutouts to your specifications in any size or shape. Glass doors can be combined with true raised panel doors for the most high precision patented Sing door core (within .006 inch tolerance) affordable American made doors.

Sing Core is a new advancement in door building technology that is bringing door-related jobs back to America.

New Sandwich Door vs. Stile & Rail and Wood Door

SING DOOR STILE & RAIL and WOOD DOOR
Visually impressive Visually impressive
True flat Depends on wood and craftsmanship
Stays flat for centuries Will warp, bend, twist over time
Weather resistant Weather exposure will cause door to fail
One-piece construction Many pieces, each piece is a weak spot
High strength Moderate strength

Insulated No insulation
Highly customizable Choose from variety of designs
Affordable Handcrafted = expensive / import = cheap
Made in the USA Yes / No

sing-core-french-door-10-lightThe idea of building doors with a “sandwich panel” is not new. A sandwich panel consists, basically, of a core material (like a paper honeycomb material found in most inexpensive lightweight doors, or particleboard found inside less expensive heavy doors, while high-end doors may use expensive LVL or solid wood stave core but cannot be guaranteed true flat) sandwiched (glued) between two exterior surface materials – or “skins” – to form a composite panel suitable for creating a door.

Don’t be fooled by door companies who advertise that their doors contain “honeycomb core,” because they may be using paper honeycomb core which has little core value. Make sure you inquire as to whether your door has patented Sing Core, aluminum core or plastic core. Know what your core value is before you buy your door.

Patented Sing Door Core presents an entirely new set of advantages over other types of core materials that result in insulated doors that last for centuries due to the strength and lightweightness of Sing Core. See table of core comparision.

This new door manufacturing technology makes it possible to create the most versatile doors with a nearly unlimited range of design capabilities without the need of framing or antiquated stile and rail door building methods.

Sing Core could be the least expensive high strength, true flat core material ever invented.

Stile and rail and wood doors are labor intensive causing many of the door companies in the United States to seek off-shore solutions and import doors to reduce the price to the end consumer.

The invention of Sing Core is bringing custom door manufacturing and the jobs associated with it back to the USA. This is due in part to providing American door manufacturers with a base material (Sing Door Core) that enables them to build an insulated, high quality, lightweight, high strength door in any style, without labor intense stile and rail door building methods.

Doors made with Sing Door Core can be made to any size, easily be modified to simulate stile and rail multi-panel design, quickly and easily be custom cut for any size or shape of lite openings for glass placement, and can feature any exterior surface material. See photos.

Doors made of Sing Core shine across the door industry as metal doors, cement board doors, FRP doors and STC sound rated* doors while appearing is door applications as flush doors, French doors, sliding doors, pivot doors, bi-fold doors, entrance doors, interior doors, carriage doors, garage doors and barn doors. Even now, we are working with bullet proof door industry.

All this at a fraction of what it would cost in labor costs to build a stile and rail door made in the USA.

LESS ENERGY – LIGHTWEIGHT – HIGH STRENGTH – SUSTAINABLE

Composite materials, like Sing Core, are leading the wave of new advancements in material science that are taking these new technologies into the future. These revolutionary technologies focus on reduction of energy consumption both during the creation process and in material handling. The newest advancements address common issues associated with weight and strength. Other major concerns are in sustainability. Sing Core excels in all of these, while being extremely affordable and proudly Made n the USA.

Patented Sing True Raised Panel Doors

High quality Sing Core Doors are affordable compared with other types of stile and rail doors, raised panel doors, French doors, carriage doors, sliding door, etc…

A raised panel door gives you that classic look of a 3-dimensional door that becomes a focal point and statement by the designer and/or homeowner.

Traditional raised panel doors have been made the same way for hundreds of years, in recent years technology has been introduced to simulate this style at an affordable price. Price being a concern has led to more off-shore imports flooding the builders’ supply markets.

Case Study: 125-year-old New York Church

Church-Doors-Goshen-United-Methodist-Church-New-YorkIn this 125-year-old church project, the Sing True Raised Panel Door was the perfect solution to address the challenges.

Problem: Exterior wood stile and rail doors fail, bend, warp, twist; requiring continued maintenance and repair.

Solution: Sing True Raised Panel Doors, guaranteed true flat – and stay flat – in exterior application, while matching original 125-year-old raised panel design.

Details: Sing Core expertise in matching client’s specifications and requirements based on patented technology that can deliver true flat, lightweight and high strength doors in any size, that can be guaranteed true flat per your specific performance standards. In this case 6 weatherproof Sing True Raised Panel doors were required to replace 6 125-year-old exterior wood doors in an effort to eliminate regular maintenance and repair challenges of previous wood stile and rail doors.

Specifics: To address the issue of weatherproof and flatness integrity for centuries, the Sing design team’s solution included Sing Panels made of Sing Core door core reinforced with aluminum and a marine grade plywood exterior skin. To match the appearance of original traditional raised panel doors, additional wood trim was added atop the panels to match the 125-year-old previous door design. A perfect match with superior performance eliminating constant maintenance.

Note: The true flat weatherproof aluminum and marine plywood composite Sing Door is the solution for any exterior door of any size including large doors.

What is a Sing Raised Panel Door?

Sing Core introduces the True Raised Panel Door. The unique design of the Sing Core Raised Panel Door capture the original intent and look of a traditional raised panel door, but offers advantages that cannot be found otherwise.

Other raised panel doors offer little structural integrity. The structure can easily be compromised by little more than kicking the door causing it to break apart at the seams. In contrast, if you were to kick a Sing Core Raised Panel Door you would break your foot.

The secret is in the core of the Sing Core Raised Panel Door. The center of the door is solid as a rock, is resistant to warp, twist or rot and can be guaranteed true flat by build up the surface of Sing panel with molding and decorative raised panels instead the conventional raised panel doors are cave in at some area less than 1/2 inch thick, Sing and cost much less than a traditional raised panel door, which is not really a raised panel door at all in comparison to the Sing Core Raised Panel Door.

All doors start with the basic Sing Flush Door

wood-flush-door-lightweight-strength

The best solution according to the Sing Core culture and philosophy is the most affordable solution of using an authentic flush door, though many artists and designers use the Sing Core Flush Door as substrate and add moldings and decorations to meet varying aesthetic specifications.

Add molding for true raised panel features

6-panel-door-them6-Panel-Single-Door-UsSide by Side Comparison

On the left is the traditional 6 panel “raised panel door” and on the right is the Sing Raised Panel Door that is a true raised panel door, unlike the door to the left. Visually, they look identical, but that is an illusion.

The one on the left is made of 15 pieces of wood assembled together and where the routing is at its narrowest connection-points the door is extremely thin. While visually appealing with a classic look, the door on the left can easily be compromised by kicking the door at any given seam. On the other had an alternative approach is to carve the designs into a solid piece of wood (which is similarly weak at the deepest carve-points).

On the other hand, the Sing door blank is the base used as door substrate, now you can add molding and raised panels on top for the true raised panel door result. Warning: Kick the Sing Raised Panel Door and break your foot, not the door. (We accept no responsibility for injury.) If you can break a sing door, we’ll send you a new one for free.

Plus, the Sing Raised Panel Door gives you all the benefits that come with having an Eco-friendly technologically advanced door that simulates the classic style of the traditional raised panel door.

That’s why many designers who are restoring classic architecture are using Sing Core to replace outdated structural materials and doors. Working with Sing Core, artists and designers are able to duplicate the look and feel of classic materials without having to compromise by loss of energy or unreliableness of traditional building materials.

New SIP Structural Insulated Panels Sips

SIP-structural-insulated-panels-sipsSIPs are Structural Insulated Panels that are a technology that helped to revolutionize the light construction building industry by using pre-panelized components to build entire structures.

Each Structural Insulated Panel (SIP) is manufactured featuring a foam core sandwiched between two OSB (Oriented Strand Board) skins. The thickness of each completed SIP starts at 4-to-6 inches and goes up from there.

SIPs are structurally stable, insulated and reduce construction labor costs.

While SIPs are being widely accepted in the home and green building community, a revolutionary, new patented design improves on the SIP concept significantly.

Homebuilders using SIPs for their exterior walls are now seeking out new alternatives for thinner but stronger internal components like walls, ceilings and floors made of Sing patented reinforced structural insulated panels.

Patented Sing Reinforced Structural Insulated Panels (SRSIP)

SIP-Sing-Insulated-Panels-sips-panel-made-in-USAInventor, Peter Sing, envisioned a fusion of old and new technologies into a hybrid composite building material that is the affordable Eco-friendly solution to limitations of traditional building materials challenging architects, designers and contractors today.

Sing’s patented design features an improved wood torsion box core that has been known by woodcraftsmen to offer strength and stability for centuries.

This newly invented core bonds wall-to-wall foam to fill the torsion box voids and exterior surface materials together creating a solid Eco-friendly composite that is lightweight and stronger than steel pound for pound.

Due to the built-in torsion box structure, much more structural strength can be achieved using less material, reducing the weight and thickness of Sing patented reinforced structural insulated panels. See specs

Sing patented reinforced structural insulated panels start at ¾-to-1 inch in comparison to standard SIPs that start at 2-to-4 inches thick.

Sing Panels enable the builder to create designs that are frame-free because the built-in torsion box structure is more dimensionally stable than a standard stick-framed structure and they are pre-insulated for energy efficiency and sound deadening qualities.

Super-strength

Sing patented reinforced structural insulated panels can have over 700 PSI compression strength in comparison to the standard foam used in SIPs which rates at about 15 PSI. There just is no comparison to Sing’s torsion-box-hybrid.

This superior strength enables Sing patented reinforced structural insulated panels to outperform other material and has already established a demand with high-end millworks for excellence in maintaining true flatness over long spans, as true flat doors or counter tops over 16 feet in length cannot be affordably lightweight, or straight over long spans, or resistant to warp, twist or rot without using patented Sing Core, which is structurally guaranteed for 10 years, is easy to repair and designed to last for lifetimes.

In fact, if your Sing patented reinforced structural insulated panel is damaged for any reason (even if it’s your fault) we will repair it to its original structural strength.

Sing patented reinforced structural insulated panels are so strong, in fact, that entire homes are built using them and they are also used in lightweight high-strength post and beam applications.

Super-thin

Sing patented reinforced structural insulated panels are so much thinner than other building materials because of the internal torsion box foam-filled frame structure. While SIPs rely on the exterior stress skin to supply the overall strength of each panel, Sing patented reinforced structural insulated panels have the strength built-in requiring very little from the external material, except to complete the torsion box construction.

For instance, standard SIPs have an exterior OSB skin of .50 inch thickness on either side of the foam core, while Sing patented reinforced structural insulated panels can have an HPL skin of .020 inch. That’s a savings of 96% in exterior materials, but still extremely strong. See comparison to other building materials.

Highly Customizable

Sing patented reinforced structural insulated panels can be built to your specifications. Whatever your specific requirements are for your project, Sing Core can create the exact panel(s) that you need to make your dream come true. This is why the most reputable architects and high-end millworks in the nation seek us out to solve their size/weight/strength challenges.

Many specifications can be customized to meet your needs, like:

  • sing-core-photo-gallery-lightweight-high-strength-ecofriendlyTrue flat (straight) and stay flat
  • Length, width, thickness
  • Weight reduction
  • Surface materials
  • Insulative R-value
  • Insect resistant
  • Sound-deadening STC rating
  • Extreme weather exposure
  • Waterproof
  • Flame retardant
  • Bullet and blast proof

In many cases, if your project is struggling against the problems associated with the limitations of traditional building materials, Sing Core may have the right Sing patented reinforced structural insulated panel solution to satisfy your expectations.

How to Build a True Flat Long Lasting Carriage Door

How to Design Order and Build your Carriage Door

True Flat Guarantee premium certified true flatTrue flat technology is based on expertise in building carriage doors that can be guaranteed true flat and stay flat. This composite science includes the proper proportions of Sing Core, aluminum and/or other materials based on your requirements or specification. In this way each Sing carriage door is a work of art.

Wood-based carriage doors are exposed to a variety of weather conditions, glaring sun, wind and rain and it is important to keep the surface primed and coated to make sure that it does not crack while exposed to weather.

Sing carriage doors prolong functionality of surface treatments due to being made with patented Sing Core’s torsion box structure that holds the wood surface to maintain a forever flat surface without twisting or cracking.

You may further weather-protect – even for withstanding the most severe weather conditions – by integrating other material into the surface of your Sing carriage door. Surface skins of aluminum, FRP or stainless steel will not crack like natural wood or plywood to prevent compromise of your Sing carriage door.

Rot-resistant-wood-panels-will-not-warp-twist-crack-or-cup-for-long-lasting-true-flatnessIf you like the look of solid wood but seek high-performance and longevity, you can use Sing aluminum as your true flat carriage door’s substrate, you will be able to maintain straightness of your doors making them less likely to crack due to movement cause by expansion and contraction of the wood surface material.

See how Sing Panel’s torsion box structure prevents surface crack because of the patented Sing Core’s unique characteristics.

To keep your carriage door true flat is a challenge for solid wood or even plywood.

Sing Core and Sing Panel master true flat technology for very high-end doors requiring less that 1/16 inch deflection which is more costly.

Sing carriage doors far exceed the AWI industry standard or ¼ inch deflection to be considered flat.
