Charleston, South Carolina recently held a ribbon cutting ceremony for their new park, Carr-Richardson park. The park features a mid-sized structure for community gatherings, and the amazing builders of this project decided to use Sing Core for the doors.
The structure features 10 total Sing Core doors, all of which are beautiful artisan grade sliding doors. 2 doors measure 53 inches by 121 inches, while 8 of them are 79.5 inches by 121 inches, making these overall quite large doors.

The park went with Sing Core for a few reasons, one of which being the size of the panels they needed. Traditional panels of this size would be incredibly heavy, and if they weren’t, they would have to sacrifice strength in order to shed some weight. Sing Core panels are both lightweight and strong thanks to the patented honeycomb core used inside.
The doors can be seen all around the building, mainly near the numerous glass windows it has. These doors are attached to rollers above the windows, and intended to slide over and cover them when needed. This could be handy for protecting the windows from severe weather, potential break ins and vandalization, and more.
Sing Core panels are also a great choice for this feature, as their inherent strength and impact resistance allows them to protect the building for many years to come.
The architect that the city consulted for the job was Liollio Architecture and the construction was contracted through Mashburn Construction, both of which are local to South Carolina. Liollio did an amazing job with the designing of this park, and Mashburn’s construction and installation of the doors was incredible. Beautiful end results like this simply aren’t possible without amazing designers and construction professionals.

We are thrilled to have been a part of this project, and are tremendously grateful for the business and support of the teams involved in creating this park. Sing Core takes great pride in public projects such as this, as it allows us an opportunity to give to the community and encourage more people-first projects.
