About Sliding HPL Doors
Sliding doors made of HPL (High Pressure Laminate) definitely have their advantages. They can look like real wood or feature the appearance of other finishes unrelated to wood and the surface is impervious to damage, so you’re likely to find HPL doors in high traffic areas, like hospitals and hospitality. They are very easy to keep clean by just simply wiping down with a damp cloth, and respond to sanitization procedures very well.
Almost the perfect door material, except if the door is very large, then you’re asking for trouble because HPL is not stiff and has the potential to warp. That’s where inventor Peter Sing’s lightweight high strength warp-free HPL door blanks come into play. With Sing’s core inside, the biggest and best millworks and door companies in the world are able to build the biggest and best warp-free HPL doors in the world.
HPL sliding doors with Sing’s core inside are the only lightweight, high strength, sound proof, climate controlling HPL doors in the world that can be guaranteed not to fail for 50 years. The only doors in the world that can be
Guaranteed Warp-free for 50 Years
And Sing Core is the only way to do it. And we couldn’t say it, if it wasn’t true. Your HPL sliding doors are built to last centuries without risk to bend, twist, cup, move, or delaminate for 50 years. And if your sliding HPL door gets damaged, they are very easy to repair on site to original structure strength without having to remove the door.
Is there any other way to accomplish this feat? No. Sing Core is the only way.
The greatest advantage to sliding HPL doors has got to be the footprint. The bigger the door, the smaller the room, the better suited to a sliding HPL door. In fact a sliding door may be your only option if you cannot accommodate the swing of a traditional hinge door. A sliding door sized 80” x 42” x 1.75” has a footprint 1/20 the size of a hinged door!
A major difference between sliding and traditional hinged doors is how they are mounted. With all the mounting hardware located above the door, there is no threshold to break a contiguous floor. Sans threshold you’re left with a clean, modern look with nothing to obstruct the floor, the most used surface of the property.
Because sliding HPL doors facilitate both privacy and greater visibility, they allow building owners more options for floor plans and in turn don’t require the same level of commitment with regards to framing and preparation. Daily fluctuations in lighting and solar exposure can also be accommodated with this adjustable door sizing an architectural aperture.
Sliding HPL doors are even better suited for commercial environments. Oftentimes service entrances have to accommodate the passage of large items and an the bigger the opening, the more convenient. With a sterile HPL skin, the surfaces of the doors can be consistently kept free of bacteria for health facilities and food preparation.
With so many HPL options, you can choose the perfect skin for your application when you order from Singcore. Singcore works with all major HPL manufacturers and can help determine the perfect fit for your project.
