Secret or hidden doors, while sounding like something out of a fantasy or mystery novel, are a very real and unique feature that many people put into their homes. These doors are practically invisible, blending in with their surroundings and closing to be completely flush with the nearby walls. This Sing Core customer requested just that, and these photos show the product during and after installation. Continue reading to learn how Sing Core can bring amazing hidden doors to your customers!
Why a Hidden Door?
The use for these doors may seem secretive or sinister, but in reality it is often just a clever way to separate rooms without having the appearance of a doorway. For example, if your customer has a lounge room or something similar meant to entertain guests, they may not want a closet door visible among the decorated walls. However, a closet would be the perfect place to store games or other entertaining essentials, so they don’t want to simply skip having one, either. Thus, a hidden door allows the best of both, giving the utility of a closet without having to compromise on appearance.
Sometimes, hidden doors are used to conceal panic rooms or areas of importance as well. This is more closely related to what most people think of when they hear the term “hidden” or “secret” door, and it is a valid purpose. However, not the only one.
How Do They Work?
Hidden doors can function in a variety of ways, often as a flush sliding door as a cleverly disguised pivot or hinge door. They are also often called jib doors, referring to their flush-to-the-wall nature. Regardless of the mechanism, they are trimmed to perfectly and seamlessly align with the surrounding wall, then usually decorated with trim or other details to fully conceal them. All in all, they are not much more difficult to install or use than a standard doorway between rooms. They do, however, take much more effort in precision and detail, which is why Sing Core is the industry’s go-to for hidden door panels.
Sing Core for Hidden Doors
Due to the importance of precision and function, Sing Core panels work great for hidden doors. Sing Core panels are the most accurate, dimensionally stable, and warp free material out there when it comes to door panels. Our panels are incredibly strong, and yet lightweight enough to be easy to install and provide less wear on the hardware. They are also structurally guaranteed, as each professional panel comes with a 50 Year Warp-Free and Structural guarantee. It isn’t good for any door to warp or bend, but especially for a hidden door, as that not only limits its function, but also its core design. It’s much harder to “hide” something that is bending out from the wall. That is why we recommend using Sing Core, as you not only get a high quality and one-of-a-kind product, but also the 50 year promise that the hidden door will continue to look and work beautifully.
