Current Trends Don’t Wait

This is an update to let you know what the current trends are, here at Sing Core.

The biggest trend is this:

Warped Doors… Help!

We have been getting a lot of calls from professionals who have installed large doors who are now in trouble because those doors warped. As you know, Sing Core is the only way to build a large door that does not warp, and we guarantee it for 50 years.

If you are in trouble and need that door right away, we can do it for you, but you will incur rush fees. You will be far better off by getting the door assistance from Sing Core in the first place.

Don’t wait. Let Sing Core save you the headache, lost time, and expense of having to replace that high-end door later. According to the reports of incoming requests, the large doors are having to be replaced within six months of the job’s completion. Don’t let this happen to you.

We Can Do It

When you work with Sing Core to help you make that big door, you are working with inventor Peter Sing’s True Flat Team that knows how to build warp-free doors. They have years of experience with all types of building materials and types of doors. They know what can be done, what cannot be done, and have patented and patent-pending technologies to make an otherwise potentially warped door, warp-free guaranteed.

 

 

Ordinary vs. High-end

This is the difference between an average door and a high-end door: Precision over time. Out of the gate, Sing’s door core sports +/- .006 in. tolerance which is the highest precision door core to start with. That’s not including all the anti-warp technologies that are available to the team to make sure your door does not warp over time.

Built to Your Specifications

We can solve the issues that you are facing with your door. We can make the door lightweight, no matter what the size, but if you need to match a weight requirement, we can help you achieve that as well. Your door with Sing Core inside can be built according to your specifications.

Some Other Trends We Are Seeing

Grooved Doors

Architectural doors with horizontal grooves appear to be all the rage. If you have been doing this for a while, you already know that routing kerfs, plow cuts, furrows, or V grooves is compromising the door’s structure and may lend to increasing the door’s tendency to warp, but not if it has Sing Core inside.

 

High precision 1/16″ groove in 1/8″ skin

We can pre-cut grooves, even deep grooves (we have a special process for extra deep grooves) for you, without jeopardizing your non-warping guarantee. If you are doing a high-end job, you should start with a high-end core, like Sing’s warp-free door core.

Curved Doors

Unlike arched doors, curved doors must be very exacting to match the curve of the structure in question. The last thing you want is for that door to move, rendering the door unusable. This is extremely important for curved doors, that they keep their shape consistent over time.

Sing Core can match any curvature in your perfectly curved door and guarantee maintaining is shape in longevity. Nobody else can do that and guarantee it for 50 years.

CNC Carved Doors

CNC carved doors are really being seen as on the increase. These doors can be rather large, and you will need enough wood (meat) to carve into, and there are varying landscapes being carved into the grain, which is an invitation to warpage.

To prevent future warping doors, these CNC artisans are making sure they have non-warping Sing Core inside, specially designed and reinforced to accommodate both the natural wood grain and the varying depths being carved throughout the door’s surface area.

How Can We Do It?

How can we consistently make the doors that are impossible for other door manufacturers to create? Because it’s all we do. We have been doing it for years and will do it for many more.

We are not saying that other companies cannot provide their clients with 50-year warp-free extraordinary doors, because we work with the biggest and best door companies to assure that they can give this level of service and precision to their clients. They trust us with giving them what they need to deliver their best to their best clients.

Let us help you deliver the best big doors to your best clients.

Impossible Doors Our Specialty

If you would like to know more about how to design a door with Sing Core inside, click here.

When it comes to building the most unique doors, especially large, oversized doors of any size (up to 20 x 60 ft. or more), type, or style of door, Sing Core’s True Flat Team knows how to bridge the gap between impossible and possible, by applying many variations of their patented and patent-pending technologies to make it happen. Some of our most recent projects include curved doors, Sing stile and rail doors, new patent pending Sing Core stile and rails, long-span wood stave planks, CNC door carving blanks, large sliders with man doors, billionaire home doors, and hot rolled steel doors.

When an architect’s visionary project is coming to life, it is common for the project to come to a halt when the main door (this inspired visual centerpiece of the project) presents problems for the millwork or door company in charge of the rest of the door schedule.

Oftentimes, the most common response is, “We will build it, or have it built, to your specifications, but this door will be placed on a separate rider, excluding it from any other warranty that may be covering the remainder of the door schedule.”

The door company will probably not even bother with the manufacturing of this piece, as it is too costly to re-tool to build it and it is likely to fail not long after installation. So, they will sub it out, and have an artisan millwork build it, freeing them from any responsibility for follow up maintenance calls regarding this piece of the job.

That is, unless they are working directly with Sing Core.

Many of the biggest door companies and high-end millworks are back into the specialty door business because they have partnered with Sing Core.

Why Sing Core?

Sing Core offers solutions that make impossible doors possible, and not only possible, but these magnificent works of art can be guaranteed not to fail, as they are covered by Sing’s

50-Year No Fail Guarantee

These enormous or one-of-a-kind unique doors are nothing short of amazing, with unparalleled service records and longevity, and they are guaranteed not to warp, bend, twist, cup or otherwise fail (including full structure and lamination warranty) for 50-years. No other door in the world comes with such an impressive guarantee unless it has Sing Core inside.

The Most Unique and Challenging Doors

Large doors are not the only unique and challenging doors to come to the attention of the True Flat Team. Many other types of architectural doors will present a huge list of problems that will send door engineers, designers, and custom door makers running for cover, yet they are no problem for the Sing Core factory teaming up with the sophisticated door manufacturer or millwork to accomplish. Like these:

Curved Doors

Curved doors are unique specialty doors, that require precise curvatures, especially if they are being newly installed in a pre-existing wall or structure that is curved. Matching the curvature of the door to the existing wall can be extremely difficult, but the True Flat Team at Sing Core make the perfect curved door to match any curved wall or structure, while still guaranteeing the door for 50 years to perform without warp.

Sing Stile and Rail Doors

The Sing-style of stile and rail door is a departure from traditional stile and rail door technology. The clients who prefer the Sing-style stile and rail door are looking for characteristics that are unavailable via traditional door building methods but still retain the look and feel of a traditional stile and rail door. Specifically, they are looking for a stile and rail door that is impact resistant, insulated for both sound deadening and climate control, and of course guaranteed for 50 years. Sing Core accomplishes this by building the stile and rail face on top of a patented warp-free core.

 

Large Thin Stile and Rail Framed Doors

Sometimes the architectural door specifications are unusual, like this wood-framed traditional stile and rail door with a large glass lite opening. This is a 14 foot tall door that calls for only a three-inch wood stile and rail surround to hold the glass. This is unusual and would be hard to accomplish with standard door building methods, and it was even a challenge for the True Flat Team, which led to their creating a new type of stiffener, which is now patent-pending technology. Now, standard stile and rail doors made with Sing Core stiles and rails can be guaranteed to remain warp-free for 50 years using new patent pending Sing Core stile and rails.

20-ft Span Wood Stave Garage Door

This is just one example to the many kinds of garage doors that Sing Core has helped to make possible. In this case, the architect insisted on 20-ft spanning warp-free wood stave planks, that any other way would have been impossible. 50 years from now, will be just as straight and true as freshly installed thanks to Sing Core and their long-span wood stave planks.

CNC Carved Doors

These beautifully CNC carved doors would be impossible to keep straight as they are accentuating the wood’s natural grain which is already trouble brewing, if not for the warp-free Sing Core working hard behind the scenes, deep inside to keep these doors perfectly and truly flat even though they are 107-inches tall using Sing CNC door carving blanks.

 

Large Sliding Doors with Man Doors

When it comes to large sliding doors with man doors, there is really only one way to do it with a high degree of precision. The large sliders with man doors must remain decidedly straight and true in order for the man door to operate seamlessly, plus, because there is Sing Core inside, you get the added benefit(s) of getting lightweight, high strength, fully insulated for sound and climate control, and our 50-year warp-free guarantee.

 

Billionaire’s Exotic Home Doors

These massive natural teak doors have Sing Core inside to keep them from warping and also to provide added protection from outside interferences to privacy and the elements. Not everyone can have their whole homes fitted with Sing’s doors, but what a great feeling it is having done so with Sing’s billionaire home doors.

 

Hot Rolled Steel Doors

Hot rolled steel doors can be a challenge, especially if they are very large. Normally, large hot rolled steel means a lot of weight needs to be articulated adding stress and strain to the frame, hardware, and structure if used very often. Patented and patent-pending Sing Core reduces the weight greatly while enhancing the door’s characteristics enabling one to install a man door or open and close a mammoth-sized hot rolled steel door easily.

 

When Bigger is Better

Thanks to the patented and patent-pending technologies in the hands of the True Flat Team at Sing Core bigger does not necessarily have to mean heavier or big troubles are ahead. With Sing Core inside your big doors can be lightweight, high strength, fully insulated, and guaranteed warp-free for 50 years.
