Other options for fastening panels may include cam locks (see examples left and right) that can be pre-installed, making assembly and joining easy and more secure.

The Sing cam-lock panel solution is a high-demand solution for panels that are routinely assembled and disassembled, especially in moveable walls, trade show booths, and various wall cladding applications.


Why Sing Panels and Norse Latches?

Sing Panels weigh a fraction of the weight of stick frame walls, plus they will stand straight and remain true flat along the entire projects. If you torque a cam locked series of wall panels made any other way, you could break the cam locks with heavy panels compromising the entire structure.

High Precision

With the extremely high precision of patented Sing Core (within .006 inch) you can build the most high precision wall system and connect them securely with Norse Latches.


Stronger than Steel

Due to the patented insulated torsion box composite core, Sing panels have a compression strength of 660 PSI; that’s stronger than steel pound for pound.

This results in the perfect union, Sing Core and Norse Latches, to build the most effective high-precision, lightweight, high strength panel wall system.

No Special Tools for Assembly

We and our clients who use the Norse cam lock devices are so excited about being able to assemble incredibly large trade show displays in very little time without requiring skilled labor or special tools.

In fact, the only tool necessary to assemble our modular trade show display components is an Allen wrench.

All of this is possible thanks to the cam lock technology by our friends at Norse, Inc.

What is a Cam Lock?

cam lock for cam lock panel insulated connectorsA cam lock is a device that is embedded at precise locations alongside the edges of our patented reinforced structural insulated panel. The cam lock fasteners come in pairs; a male cam lock latch and a female cam lock receptacle.

Two panels can be placed side by side and with a simple turn of a cam lock key or Allen wrench, the cam lock latch grasps the opposing cam lock pin and pulls the panel in tight for secure cam lock coupling. See: Cam Lock Panels with Cam Locks by Norse.

How to Install a Cam Lock

Most of the high end millworks that we supply our reinforced structural insulated panels to (see clients list) install the each camlock in their woodworking shop.

Sing Core offers pre-installation of cam locks to our clients’ specifications. Standard sized cam lock panels have two cam locks installed; one at the top and one at the bottom of the panel. The two cam lock design is most common for trade show panels.

Museums, on the other hand, may use much larger panels with either three cam locks installed; top and bottom with another cam lock installed in the middle, while others specify that the center cam lock be replaced with a small biscuit-style joint.

Though we do not design cam lock panels, we do build them to your specifications.

Since standard Sing museum and trade show panels feature built-in wood frames and have many skin options such as  wood, metal, HPL, FRP, magnesium board (for sound deadening), as exterior treatment, simple carpentry skills and wood working tools are all that is needed to modify or beautify your panels on site completing your work of art. You will not confused by European imported museum panels that come with dozens of metal parts and heavy aluminum frames to reinforce the panel’s strength. Alternatively Sing Museum Walls, shelves and displays embrace good, old-fashioned American wood craftmanship. European import paper core and particle board lack the strength compared to patented Sing Core and solid skins provided by Sing Museum wall panels.

It’s amazing what an impact some wood trim/molding can add to the appearance of your project. We can provide finishing at extra charge, or you can do it yourself in house.

Even though Sing Panels can be joined in any configuration or designed to your specifications we have a system available for our standard 2.25″ panels that include a connector stile with cam-lock receptacles to match your Sing Panels and we can accommodate any angle to meet your requirements.
