Door Finishes

There are many ways to build large doors with Sing Core inside, the only doors that can be,

Guaranteed Warp-free for 50 Years


When it comes to oversize doors, one door stands out above the rest for high-end applications; see comparison. Look for these features in your door for the most discriminating taste(s):

  • Available in any size (up to 16 ft.)
  • Lightweight
  • Strong (stronger than steel pound for pound)
  • Insulated
  • Sound-deadening
  • Guaranteed True Flat
  • Resistant to warp, twist, crack & rot
  • Standard 10-year warranty
  • Professional 50-year warp-free guarantee

For more detailed information on our doors, see our Architectural Specifications.

Though Sing Core Doors are available in nearly any wood species, our standard varieties include:

sing-maple sing-cherry sing-oak sing-vg-fir sing-walnut
MAPLE CHERRY OAK VG FIR WALNUT

Note: Door designs can be modified to meet your specifications and requirements an may include the application and bonding of any flat building material. Please feel free to inquire for more information.

1. Paint Grade Door

2. Wood Grain and Wood Stave Door

3. Hardwood Plywood Door

1 Paint Grade Door

Our most popular door blanks are paint grade, and can be made to your specs including surface materials of,

  • Birch ply (most common)
  • Wood plywood
  • MDO
  • HPL
  • Other material, as specified

 

2 Wood Grain and Wood Stave Door

Besides paint grade for the surface, we also provide solid wood stave laminate on both sides of the sliding door. Wood stave is easy to work with and will last. Your Sing wood stave door will be more high precision than solid wood door (less warping, and twist and crack) due to Sing Core’s extremely high tolerance (+/- .006 inch) and, rigidity and high strength (660+ PSI) and professional grade wood grain and wood stave doors are certified and guaranteed not to warp, bend, twist, or otherwise fail for 50 years.

Sing Core provides hot-press ready door blanks to door manufacturers who add wood veneer on both sides of Sing door blanks which are made of Luan skin or marine grade plywood sandwich with patented Sing Core in the middle, solid wood around 4 edges and wood block implants where needed for hardware.

Note: Veneer has to be handled very carefully every step of the way during production (we prefer to let the millworks handle this delicate procedure) and it is easy to damage by users over the years (but wood stave can be easily sanded and repaired).

We offer a very good price for wood stave doors, the cost is not much more than wood veneer doors.

3 Hardwood Plywood Door

We could make door with hardwood plywood as an effective way to make super large doors that you can stain any color. Up to 4×8 doors have no seam, but by orienting the grain horizontally, you can achieve a nearly seamless presentation on really big doors or extraordinary size.

Available in any available wood species, most common are Sapele, Oak, and Maple ply.

Sing Hardwood ply door has excellent strength, yet is lightweight, features good insulation and better sound deadening qualities than solid wood plank doors.

Advanced Composites

Sing-composite-panel-core-torsion-box-foam-hybrid-lightweight-high-strengthSing Core technology is manifested in so many ways we’ve tried to narrow down the basics to make the possibilities easy to comprehend.

What are Sing Composites?
Sing Composites are the combining of different abundant raw materials for the greater good. Sing Composites are:

  • Stronger
  • Lightweight
  • Eco-friendly

While reducing:

  • Waste
  • Energy
  • Production costs
  • Labor costs
  • Shipping costs

To understand Sing Core technology, you must understand that in all Sing Core products the Sing Core is the actual core of the product that produces the vast number of characteristics that make up the Sing Core line.

Sing Core with two exterior skins is a Sing Sandwich Panel, adding solid edges makes a Sing Panel. Basically, all the products listed below are Sing Panels, separated into shape, size and dimensional categories and primarily feature wood exteriors, but could be available in nearly any exterior material. We do all this, and make it affordable to have the greatest impact on the world.

All Sing Core products share the same exceptional characteristics.

Best Seller, the most versatile: 2×12

There are three basic formats for demonstrating the attributes of the Sing Core material, they are:

1. Sing Plywood

Sing-composite-engineered-plywood-panels-lightweight-high-strengthSing Plywood enables you to use a lightweight, strong, wooden torsion-box panel empowering you to create anything from basic furniture, large sliding doors or to create affordable housing with unparalleled longevity.

  • available in large almost seamless oversized panels
  • as large as 12 ft wide x 48 ft in length
  • as thin as 1/2 inch
  • Can be as much as 6 inches thick

Oversize Sing Plywood will have the tightest seam that will not shift due to patented technology, making it guaranteed to maintain structural integrity and seal, unlike solid wood.

With an appearance identical to traditional plywood, the physical characteristics are nothing short of shocking in comparison, as Patented Sing Plywood

2. Sing Planks

Eco-friendly-sing-composite-wood-planks-high-strength-lightweight-structural-insulatedSing Core Wood Planks are elongated and rectangular solid wood on six sides, a lightweight super-strong eco-friendly alternative to solid wood material used in carpentry and the construction of ships, houses, bridges and other structures.
