When it comes to unique front doors, the top designers, architects and visionary end users, think outside the box to achieve the results of creating the best and most unique front doors of all.
Why all this fascination with unique front doors?
Think about it, what’s the first thing you see when you approach any structure? In most, if not all, cases, your first impression, the first noticeable component of any structure (beside the structure itself) is the front door. If the front door is unique and has enough impact, it will leave a lasting impression, reminding you of your visit at this specific location, every time you recall seeing such a unique front door.
Unique front doors are many times more effective than a calling card. In this day and age, anyone can find you within a few clicks, but how will they remember you?
How do you create unique front doors?
By thinking outside the box. First, you must determine what a unique door is not. Standard doors are a particular size and operate by swinging this way or that utilizing hinges installed on one side of the door. So, for your front door to be unique you must avoid both standard size and side mounted swing hinges.
Surprising your visitors with either sliding doors or pivot doors that are large in size are effective ways to leave a lasting impression as unique front doors.
Sliding Unique Front Doors
Sliding door make excellent unique front doors because you don’t see them every day, and if they are fairly large sliding doors, then even better. Sliding doors are the most popular alternative to the swing door, because they can still be thin (standard door thickness) but slide side to side. The structure will have to be wide enough to accommodate the sliding door, or in the case of double sliding door, the pair.
Sliding front doors can operate in full view exposing the sliding door in the open position, or as pocket doors, where the sliding doors are concealed in the open position as they retract into a cavity on the wall. Sliding pocket doors are a unique, more advanced approach to the unique front door quandary.
Sliding doors are standard fare, unless they are large sliding doors. Only then, designers and engineers start to run into problems associated with handling, accommodating, and the maintenance of large sliding doors over time. Why? Because large sliding doors warp, and when they do, the results are not pretty. That’s when architects and engineers begin specifying Sing Core in their designs. Large sliding doors with Sing Core inside are the only Eco-friendly lightweight high strength large sliding doors that can be guaranteed not to warp, twist, bend or otherwise fail (including full structure warranty) for 50 years!
Pivoting Unique Front Doors
The most impressive lasting impressions are left by structures hosting large pivot doors. Hands down large pivot doors outperform any other type of door in terms of garnering attention and leaving them something to think about (and talk about around the water cooler).
And big pivot door are not only taller and wider than the normal run of the mill side swing doors, but to raise the stakes even more, they can be many times thicker than an average door, guaranteed to make anyone stop and take notice.
Of course, these impressive large pivot doors are going to heavier than imaginable just by the sheer enormity of expanded height, width and thickness of your unique front door. This causes great expense in terms of manufacturing, shipping, handling, installation, hardware, and maintenance over time due to warping.
Exterior Pivot Doors
Whether you’ve decided to go with unique sliding doors or pivot doors, realizing that your unique front door will be presenting certain challenges, such as having one side facing the interior environment and the other facing the elements. That’s a recipe for disaster, because it will cause your door to move, and too much movement will compromise the doors integrity. Your unique front door might look gorgeous, but if it won’t secure or seal properly, what good is it?
Built with Sing Core Inside
When you build your large sliding doors or big pivot doors with Sing Core inside, you imbue your Eco-friendly insulated unique front doors with incredible attributes, such as, lightweight (a fraction the weight of other high performance large doors), high-strength (660+ PSI, stronger than steel pound for pound. This accounts for Sing Core’s responsibility in the creation of the best sliding doors and pivot doors.
Any Flat Building Material
Since we build to architectural specification, door blanks can be made and prepared with any flat building material as exterior finish, including any available species of wood (even wood planks), aluminum, brass, concrete, copper, fiberglass, FRP, glass, HPL, Kevlar, LVL, MDF, metal, steel (cold rolled steel, galvanized steel, hot rolled steel, stainless steel), just to name a few. This expands your potential creativity further knowing you are not limited to conventional building methods to achieve the high marks Sing Core brings to the table.
How to Build the Best Doors
Patented Sing Core is a unique hybrid solid structure core that maximizes old and new technologies in a honorably sustainable way by first using a modified torsion box structure (using vertical instead of horizontal wood grain), then the otherwise empty voids are filled with rigid recycled foam (EPS standard, other type of rigid foam/insulation available) adhered and sandwiched between two stress skins. The resulting large sliding door or big pivot door (which could feature any flat building material on the surface) is the only way to build a lightweight sliding door or huge pivot door without risk of failure, plus your premium unique pivot door could be covered by our,
50 Year Warp-free Guarantee
With Sing Core inside all of your sliding doors and pivot doors could be guaranteed not to fail for 50 years, including structure failure. Even if your guaranteed sliding or pivot door is damaged in any way (like running into it with forklift blades) it can be repaired to new condition utilizing basic carpentry skills without compromising the strength, performance or longevity of your unique front door.
