Instead of the doors motion being controlled by traditional hinges, a pivot-hung door swings on a set of pins mounted in the top and bottom.

Breaking News: Thin Doors Need Strength Too

Breaking News: Thin Doors Need Strength Too!

Sing Core has always been on the leading edge of the reinforced structural panel industry.

Our panels are among the lightest, strongest, and overall best on the market.

Watch the video below and hear how solid our doors really are.
 



This panel is super thin for its overall span. Overall thickness is only 1 3/4″. Our patented torsion box honeycomb allows us to create lightweight high strength panels that can be any size without any warping. Solid wood would be very heavy and can potentially warp shortly after being produced. This panel is a whopping 65 1/2″ x 120″ and only weighs 139.6 lbs.!

As you can see, the skin is birch plywood that is less than 1/8″ thick. Combined with our torsion box honeycomb design, this panel will be stable and remain rigid for many years.
Due to this panel being truly flat, it can stand alone on edge. If there was any deflection, the panel would be unable to balance.

Thin oversized panel standing on edge. 

 

Can any anyone else achieve this?

 

 

Let us know!
If not, share this with a friend who may need our patented technology.

 


<tbody=”border: none;”>

A door with these dimensions is greatly feared by many door manufacturers. A door like this is nearly impossible to build without having issues. Common issues with doors so large and so thin include warping, delamination, prevalent weak points, and many others. If this were produced with solid wood, the door would be unable to stand alone due to not being true flat. Sing Core’s true flat doors and panels comply with AWI standards and can stand alone.

Sing Core’s patented lightweight and high strength torsion box honeycomb core design makes building oversized doors easy and provides lasting strength and durability. We know our doors and panels are among the lightest and strongest on the market, so we guarantee every door and panel for 50 years!

We never do veneering in house. We only trust local professionals for veneering services. Sing Core only provides substrate to be veneered. We highly recommend using your local veneering professionals. Veneering requires highly trained professionals to ensure a quality finished product.

Our substrate with MDF is very good for hot pressing as well as preventing telegraphing in the outer skin. This is the best option for ensuring a quality veneered door panel. With Sing Core substrate and 1/8″ MDF, no cross-banding is required. MDF is a very stable substrate to use.

For other applications, plywood is very strong and provides the best dimensional stability. This is the best option for applying overlays, such as wood staves, drywall, concrete board, etc… We offer many different plywood options, see our skin type page for more information.

Pivoting Door

If you’re looking for the best pivot door system in the world, the Sing pivoting door might be just what you’re looking for. When it comes to large panels and pivoting doors nothing is better than a pivoting door with Sing Core inside.

Pivoting Front Doors

Pivoting front doors are a challenge for most pivot door manufacturers because in most cases, pivoting doors are taller, wider, and thicker than other types of front doors. Due to the size, your pivot front door is likely to be very heavy requiring expensive hardware and installation expense, as well as continuing expensive maintenance costs because the nature of this door is to fail due to warping, or stress and strain exerted on the hardware and structure if used regularly.

If your pivoting front door has Sing Core inside, you don’t have to worry about these expenses, because you are the proud owner of an Eco-friendly lightweight, high strength pivot front door that can be guaranteed not to warp or otherwise fail for 50 years!

Pivoting Metal Doors

Pivoting metal doors are making their mark by appearing more regularly in modern architecture and design channels. A metal pivot door is going to be extremely heavy and if welded will compromise high precision, this is a recipe for expensive regular maintenance over time, unless your metal pivot door has Sing Core inside.

Your perfect pivoting door would possess all the visual cues offered by the design your creativity birthed, without all the headaches, and pivoting metal doors are far more high precision based on the precision of Sing Core (+/- .006 tolerances) and the fact that inventor Peter Sing’s factory uses patented and patented-pending pivot door manufacturing processes which are welding-free.

Sing Core provides the top door manufacturers in the world with all types of metal doors. By far, the most popular metal doors are aluminum pivot doors, which is the most economical and high-performance metal which can be used in metal doors. If that’s what you’re looking for, then the aluminum pivot door with Sing Core inside might be the perfect match for you.

Next up are steel pivoting doors, which come in a variety of steels, such as cold rolled steel, galvanized steel, hot rolled steel, diamond plate steel, and quilted steel. Of all the different kinds of steel available, hot rolled steel is climbing the charts at an incredible rate, and the hot rolled steel pivot door is expected to be the number one selling custom-made modern pivoting doors soon.

Custom-made Modern Pivoting Doors

Long known for their custom-made modern architectural pivoting doors, this is the mainstay of the success of Sing Core. Inventor Peter Sing’s custom high-end pivot entry doors are featured in the most expensive multi-million-dollar homes across the United States and can even be found on the top floor of the highest building in America (the 89th floor of the Freedom Tower at the World Trade Center).

Interestingly enough, even though Sing’s Eco-friendly factory is nestled in the serene Pacific Northwest in a remote area of Washington State, most of the products are shipped out or exported, with nearly 80 percent of inventory being shipped to the greater New York-area.

Warp-free Wood Pivoting Doors

And if that wasn’t enough, inventor Peter Sing seems to have conquered the most prevalent of problems with wooden pivoting doors, which is widely known as warping. With the proprietary knowledge of non-warping technologies supported by hybrid patented and patent pending reinforced torsion box inventions, Sing’s True Flat Team is able to create a wood pivot door which can be guaranteed not to warp, bend, twist, or otherwise fail for 50 years.

50-year Guarantee

It’s the only way we know of to make a large pivoting door (up to 40 ft.) that can be guaranteed to remain warp-free for 50 years, including a full structure warranty. Prior to the invention of sing Core, such a feat was just not possible, especially for a large pivoting door made of wood.

Thanks to Sing’s invention, the way large pivot doors are built is changing all over the world, and you can be counted among the many who can enjoy the sense of peace which comes from owning a pivoting door with Sing Core inside, helping to make the world a better place one door at a time.
