Being approached by a client who is in need of a uniquely large pivot door to withstand the difficult climates of Lake Tahoe can seem like a near impossible feat. This pivot door needed to be lightweight for ease of installation and daily use by the client, impact resistant to hold up to everyday use, sound deadening to drown out the hustle and bustle of everything outside
A pivot door built with patented and patent-pending SingCore inside can make anything possible.

Opposing wood species
Dissimilar wood species on the interior and exterior of the door means differing rates of expansion and contraction. SingCore has the strength and stability to remain rigid against the push and pull of the dissimilar skins.
Lightweight oversize door
Now let’s take a look at why this door needs to be lightweight.
First off, big pivots doors tend to be very heavy which makes them more difficult to manage, they require custom made specialized hardware and require a lot of maintenance due to the stress that the pivot door adds to the structure.
Secondly a pivot door is only held with two points of contact on the top and bottom of the pivot door; meaning that if the door warps or twists, the door operation will be degraded or completely fail.
A pivot door this size with a solid core will weigh around 800lbs before any skins are added.
Now with SingCore, this door’s weight is a fraction of what other solid pivot doors would have weighed. This weight savings translates into a reduced overall budget by having lower shipping costs, lower hardware cost and lower cost for the labor of the installation.
Adverse climate for keeping oversize pivot doors straight
Ready for any climate
Lake Tahoe is known for its incredible skiing and breathtaking beauty. Not for its temperate climate.
This pivot door will see outside temperatures as low as 4°F while the inside temperature may be a toasty 76°F, which is a 72° difference.
SingCore pivot, sliding, hinge, and pocket door slabs are fully insulated with your choice of recycled EPS foam core (3.5 R value per inch) or urethane foam core (5.7 R value per inch).
Perfectly straight oversize pocket door
At 19’ tall this pivot door is as big of a challenge as it gets to keep straight.
All door slabs fabricated by SingCore are completely custom. The SingCore team takes into account the finishing, hardware, and climate when building each core. No two doors are alike. And we take great pains to ensure every pivot, sliding, pocket, and hinge door stays within AWI standards.

It’s hard not to pass through such a large opening without expressing one’s self, with something, like, “Wow.”
Until the advent of Sing Core, the resounding challenge facing pivot door manufacturers was the fact that pivoting doors were warping. Thanks to inventor, Peter Sing, his factory is able to build warp-free pivot door blanks custom-designed and built to host any flat building material. This non-warping substrate enables any pivot door company to build a pivot door that does not warp.
In fact, custom built doors, built in tandem with Sing Core’s true flat team can provide clients with pivot doors which can be guaranteed not to warp, bend, twist, or otherwise fail (including full structure) for 50 years; guaranteed in writing. No other door builder can do that, unless their doors have Sing Core inside.
Unlike hinged doors which are firmly anchored on one side of the door to help prevent warping, pivot doors only have two points of contact where the door swings freely from side to side, in some cases all the way around, pivoting on one anchor point on the doors base and the other on top of the pivoting door.
That’s it. Therefore, it’s very hard to keep pivot doors straight. Sing Core provides pivot doors such as aluminum pivot door and steel pivot doors, but also dares to build and create warp-free versions of wood pivot doors, which are by far the most problematic.

If you want to find the best door in the world for you next project all you need to do is to use the best tool for finding the best doors, such as:
Google search pivot door
If you’re looking for the what constitutes the best doors, then you might search for the most expensive door. You will find that the door companies which can make the most expensive doors which outperform all other doors in terms of weight, strength, and longevity are the hardest to make. That is, unless you know the secret.
Best Door Secret
Pivot doors are problematic because they only have two points of contact whereby the pivot door is operated and anchored by the pivot door hinges.
Hinge doors can be secured by multiple hinges, even a full length piano hinge which anchors one whole side of the door completely. Even so, with one side fully anchored, a large door will warp, bend, twist or cup, causing it to fail. A warped door will compromise the door seal and may not be able to allow the door latch to secure properly.
High End Pivot Doors
Pivot doors rely only on those two pivot points, one on the top of the door, and the other opposite it on the bottom of the door. It is imperative for a functioning pivot door to remain straight and true, or else you cannot operate it properly.
Only the best pivot door companies can make a high-end pivot door which can perform over time without failing due to door warp.
50-year Warp-free Guarantee
All you have to do, is to contact the top pivot door manufacturers on your search results and ask them if they offer a large pivot door with a 50-year guarantee.
If they do, these doors will all have Sing Core inside.
With Sing Core inside your pivot door, it will be lightweight (a fraction the weight of other solid core pivot doors), and high-strength (at 660+ PSI, stronger than steel pound-for-pound).
9 ft wide warp -free weatherproof pivot door
You also have the added benefit of having a pivot door which is fully insulated for climate control and sound deadening capabilities (Sing Core can be found inside the most efficient soundproof doors in the world).
You Can Laugh or Cry
When you discover the secret of the most expensive high-end doors, you might start to laugh, but before you start laughing, think about this:
You might be crying, if you make the wrong decision, and find yourself in possession of a weak door which may fail prior to when you might have expected.
This is why most large door manufacturers will exclude large doors (over 7 ft tall and 3.5 ft wide) in the door schedule from the warranty following installation. Chances are they will start to fail at the next change of season.
21 ft tall aluminum pivot door
Then you might reason (as many have) that if Sing Core can make the best doors in the world the most valuable doors in the world, then Sing Core could make anything better, and it does.

Insulated Walnut Door
Doors of Almost Any Style Could be Made with Sing Core Inside
1. Pivot Doors
Pivot doors are the highest and best use of Sing Core because for the most part, pivot doors are quite large in size and are often much thicker than a standard door. If your intention is to feature a real wood finish, you know you’re going to be in trouble, that’s when the warp-free attributes of patented Sing Core shines through as the only way to build a large wood door which can be guaranteed to offer warp-free performance over time: 50 years, guaranteed, on professional grade doors.
2. Sliding Doors / Pocket Doors
Sliding Doors often present problems when they are very large due to their sensitivity and tendency to move, bend, or cup in response to changes in the environment, for which Sing Core is the perfect solution.
Large bypass sliding doors are likely to deface, scar, or otherwise damage themselves if they are not kept straight and true by being built with Sing Core inside in advance of bypass door failure.
Pocket doors, which are the most problematic of all sliding doors, because they hide within a cavity are highly benefited from being built with Sing Core inside. If warped, the finish of the door may be compromised as it brushes against the frame or cavity’s interior, and if it cups or bends too far, may become lodged either inside or outside of the pocket unable to open and close as a door. Sing Core keeps them straight and true.
3. Hinged Doors
Hinged doors are for the most part manageable even when facing a certain degree of warp, which is normal in normal sized doors. Problems arise when doors are very large, especially if over 7 ft. tall or 3.5 ft. wide. Any movement or change in the door’s being compromised is increased exponentially in relation to the dimensions of the door. Not a problem with Sing Core’s professional door blanks.
Diverse types of hinged doors, such as French doors, sliding folding doors, front entry doors, and carriage doors (among other types of hinged doors), all present varying challenges when migrating from the drawing board to the real world, and Sing Core makes the difference.
While Eco-friendly insulated Sing door blanks could be used in doors of any size, the efficacy is maximized in door performance in any door over 7 ft. tall and 3.5 ft. wide. This is why you find Sing Core inside the largest doors in high-end homes, businesses, and industrial sites, because it’s the only way to build a large door which can remain straight and true, regardless of the size of the door, while still remaining lightweight.
Since every door slab manufactured by Sing Core is likened unto a one-of-a-kind piece of art, architects and designers are free to create a door of any size and shape using any available flat building material.
Sing door slabs can be created to accommodate any shaped design in any thickness, and so it goes for any shaped light cutout for glass openings.
