The University of Alabama is an outstanding institution with a vast amount of students, clubs, and organizations. Among these proud groups are fraternities and sororities, particularly the Tri Delta Sorority. Tri Delta is a sisterhood that was formed in 1888 by two young women, and has continued to be a fun and inclusive community for students ever since.
The Tri Delta sorority house serves many purposes and hosts many events, some of which are meetings in a set meeting hall. This hall needed a large sliding door to allow entrance from the nearby chamber, and the amazing designers at Ellis Architects worked with Sing Core to make that door happen. The door consists of two panels, both measuring 89 inches by 103.5 inches, and was finished with 3/8 inch MDF.
Why They Chose Sing Core
There are many reasons why the designers and builders chose Sing Core for this project, and several of them come down to the needs of the room and the benefits of Sing Core. Some of the main reasons builders use Sing Core is for the strength, durability, and lightweight nature of our panels. These benefits apply to every use. A strong door is essential to withstanding impacts and heavy traffic, and being lightweight improves a door’s function, ease of use, and extends the life of its hardware. A durable door means it will continue to function for a long time without needing repair or replacement, and Sing Core hits all three of these points.
Light and Strong
Sing Core doors are pound for pound stronger than steel, and incredibly lightweight. This is achieved through our patented honeycomb core construction technology. Our core is strong and insulated, as well as very light. It can out-perform other conventional building methods while remaining a fraction of their weight. This lightweight nature also improves its ease of use, as a lighter door is going to swing or slide open much easier than a heavier version.
Durable and Long-Lasting
It seems an odd thought to many that a door can fail, but it happens all the time. Doors made in various ways can bend, warp, crack, delaminate, or do one of many other catastrophic things that renders them useless. Sometimes these issues can be repaired, but it’s best to never have them happen in the first place. Sing Core doors are incredibly durable, and carry the industry’s only 50 Year Warp and Fail Free Guarantee. Our doors will never warp, bend, twist, or otherwise fail, and that is all due to our innovative honeycomb core and the high quality materials we use in the construction process.
Other Perks of Sing Core
There are even more reasons why Sing Core was the best pick for this project, including design versatility and sound reduction. Sing Core has many different options when it comes to panel design, including custom dimensions, numerous options for finish, and other optional traits. In addition, our insulated core provides added sound dampening, reducing noise pollution and allowing the meeting hall to remain focused and isolated from outside noise.
Sing Core is honored to have been included in this project, and are thrilled with the amazing design work of Ellis Architects and the installation of the building team.
