People often think of doors as simple barriers or entryways, but at Sing Core, we know that a door can be much more than that. Doors can be elegant accents to a room’s design, or a seamless way to change a room’s layout. If done right, they can even be part of a room’s main design feature, such as in the example we’re showing you today.
This customer needed a way to separate two areas of the house, but was fairly limited in their options due to their design preference. Due to the height of the room, a standard door would not work unless they expanded on the center wall, which would majorly damage the flow and beauty of the room. A normal sliding door would work, but the dimensions would be incredibly difficult to get right. The door would have to be incredibly tall, yet narrow, which would need to be custom made. If this was done with traditional materials, the doors would likely be too heavy to work reliably, and could damage their hardware. Sing Core, however, was a great solution.
Because Sing Core panels are made with a honeycomb core, they are incredibly lightweight, yet still very strong. This means that the custom doors would still be sturdy and long lasting, but due to their low weight, they’d also be easy to use and be far less likely to damage their hardware. In fact, each of these doors only weigh 200 pounds, despite being over 13 feet tall.
These twin pocket doors measure 40 inches wide by 158 inches tall, and are 2.5 inches thick. This tall and narrow design worked beautifully for the room, though is definitely a non-standard size. Getting a door like this without having it custom made would be impossible, but luckily Sing Core specializes in large, high end custom doors.
A Sing Core door can be ordered to nearly any shape or size, and are strong, lightweight, and durable. One major concern with large doors is the possibility of warping, which gets exponentially more likely, and often exponentially worse, with larger doors. In the case of this project, even just a slight warp could ruin the entire system. A little bend or twist could leave a door stuck in its pocket, or scraping the side as it is opened and closed, damaging both the door and the wall nearby. There are many ways a warp can hinder or ruin a door, and often, warps are irrecoverable. Sing Core doors are guaranteed to never warp, and we can make that claim due to our innovative and patented honeycomb core. In fact, each door panel comes with a 50 Year Warp-Free and Structural Guarantee, so you can rest easy without worrying about your door failing on you.
