New Large Stile and Rail Pivot Doors and Sliding Doors

Stile and rail doors are among the most popular doors in the world. Sing Core’s patented and patent-pending technology is the best way to create a beautiful stile and rail door that will last a lifetime. There are four ways to create a stile and rail door with Sing Core technologies:

1.Sing Core’s new patent-pending stile and rail technology are the only way to build an oversized stile and rail door that will last a lifetime with a warranty to match. This method is an affordable option to our high-end panel doors.

2. The doors can be crafted from Sing Core panels with molding overlays to create the stile and rail appearance. Sing Core’s cutting edge technologies allow door manufacturers to build high precision doors of any size using only our panels. Our stiles and rails provide the most strength possible to support any size light opening.

Long known for our problem-solving and attention-grabbing Sing Panel doors (doors with Sing Core inside), we introduce you to our new patent-pending Large Stile and Rail Pivot Doors and Sliding Doors. Never before has there been such a high precision or stronger wood-based door core to expand the horizon of possibilities in the stile and rail door industry.

Sing Core Introduces New Highest Precision Stile and Rail

Born out of technology requested for a very important large stile and rail door job with large glass cutout with thin wood surface frame and demanding warp-free flawless precision led to inventor Peter Sing’s latest patent-pending technology.

Thanks to this latest challenge, Sing Core can now offer the guaranteed straightest wood-based stile and rails for any kind of stile and rail or French door in any size imaginable.

New Large Glass Cutout Tech

Before now, large, glazed stile and rail and French doors with huge light openings might have been problematic for framing with anything besides aluminum or steel.

Stronger Than Aluminum Frame

Now you can have the beauty of wood, real wood to hold and support big and heavy glass without fear of failure at frame joints nor the challenge of warping while in service.

Large Stile and Rail No Problem

Have you ever dreamed about having a huge stile and rail door? Well, you don’t have to be worried about size, because we can now make fail-free interior or exterior framed doors in any size from 10 ft. up to 40 ft. wide or tall.

Sing Core’s cutting edge technologies allow door manufacturers to build high precision doors of any size with confidence.

There is no doubt, pivot doors, especially large pivot doors are hot. You can now have them in the look of any style of door, and you guessed it, stile and rail pivot doors are now increasing in popularity thanks to Sing’s patented and patent-pending technologies.

Traditional stile and rail designs have a high tendency to fail or warp, but not with Sing Core inside.

Stile and rail pivot doors add a sophisticated touch to any high-end home.

 

What’s the problem with custom stile and rail doors?

  1. It can take a long time to get one
  2. There are many limitations
  3. High cost of shipping and handling

Wooden Large Patio Doors

Large patio doors are often made of aluminum or vinyl out of necessity due to being exposed to the weather. Not a problem for Sing Core fail-free large patio door substrates and stile and rail frames. Whatever you need, you can find it at Sing Core, the large wood patio door experts.

Superior Rigidity

Sing Core technologies are rigid, the most rigid and dimensionally stable door core and warp-free technology.

Wide Frame or Narrow Frame

You now can have a wood stile and rail or French door with any look you like, from the classic wide wood frame (five to seven inches), or architecturally inspired thin frame (three inches) made of wood and stronger than steel. Strong enough to hold all that heavy glass.

And those slim looking stile and rails with Sing Core inside? They still function better than any other wood-based door tech. This our niche.

Our new patented Stile and Rail technology creates extremely strong doors that are the most warp resistant doors on the market. With our new technology, you can create beautiful stile and rail doors of any size with confidence. This is a much more affordable option to our high-end panel doors.

The picture above is a door that began as one of our famous true flat Sing Core door blank. They then overlaid trim, or molding, to create the appearance of a stile and rail door. As you can see, this door has been exposed to full weathering 100% of the time and shows no signs of warpage or failure. Our panel doors are used in the most high-end houses in the US.

The doors above are crafted with our true flat panels to have a similar appearance to stile and rail doors but have immense strength for any size door and/or any size light opening. On the left is a pair of 16 ft. tall French doors with multiple light openings, on the right is a 14 ft. tall door with a massive light opening.

The doors pictured above consist of our new stile and rail technology to support the light opening and our Sing panel for the other half of the door. The new stile and rail technology allows us to make our frames thinner than ever without sacrificing any strength.

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.

How to Build a High-End Stile and Rail Impact Door

Being in the business of helping the biggest door manufacturers and high-end millworks building the best doors in the world, we thought we might let you in on a little secret. Sing Core is world renowned for building the best enormous doors that are lightweight, high strength, fully insulated, and guaranteed to perform warp-free for 50 years. But did you know that we also make the world’s strongest lightweight and insulated stile and rail doors?

The popularity of stile and rail doors has been around for years because, number one, they look amazing. They have a unique appearance as they are manufactured of panels of various sizes. The most popular, and it is the one you are most likely to think of when you think of a stile and rail door, is the six-panel door.

Hands down, this is by far the most popular design. The traditional six panel door is made up of 15 individual wood pieces with alternating grain orientation and all the components are assembled by varying means depending on the application of the door.

If the best feature of the stile and rail door is the undeniable appearance of the door, the second-best feature of the stile and rail door is it’s ability to stay relatively straight over the life of the door. This is accomplished by varying the grain orientation of all the individual panel pieces, which push and pull against each other, unlike a traditional solid slab door which can move wildly at any time or according to any change in the environment.

But the biggest disadvantages include very low insulation value. This means they are not well suited for climate control or sound reduction, and for high-end clients, though they love the appearance of the panel doors, they are not very strong.

If you build stile and rail doors, you may need to know how new technology can lower your labor costs and increase your productivity when building all types, styles, and designs of doors. Sing Core has done it and proven it backed by the best guarantee in the industry.
We can help you:

  • Meet your production needs – Fast Delivery
  • Exceed your quality expectations – High Precision
  • Reduce your labor cost – Money Saving
  • Structural guarantee – 50 Years!
  • Custom sizes – Any Size or Weight
  • Fully insulated and sound deadening door panels

The Sing solution is to build your stile and rail door on top of the patented Sing Panel Door Substrate invented by Peter Sing. Sing’s substrate is lightweight, high strength, fully insulated and comes back by the only

50-year Warp-free Guarantee

in the door industry.

Now, you do not have to settle for a weak stile and rail door because your stile and rail door can have Sing Core inside.

How to Build a Stile and Rail Impact Door

The first step is to start with Sing’s patented core which is built of small metric vertical grain torsion box where the voids are filled with foam for insulation, and this is sandwiched between two stress skins.

The next stage is where the expertise of the millworks and door manufacturers come in. Instead of manufacturing the door out of individual pieces of wood stuck together, the panel design elements, as in our six-panel door option shown here, are added to the surface of the door.

This gives you the appearance of the traditional six panel that we all have come to love, but if your six-panel door has Sing Core inside, you have the lightweight for panel doors of enormous size, or adjustable weight for smaller doors, with all the insulation and incredible unbreakable strength.

Sing says, “If you kick a traditional stile and rail door you will break the door, but

“If you kick my door, you will break your leg.”

(Don’t try this at home.)

This is just the beginning. Sing can help you make any kind of door. Sing Core is featured in all kinds of doors and is highly sought after when creating replacement doors is historical restorations, especially if they are large doors which are problematic for maintenance because they do not have Sing Core inside. We do not sell our products to homeowners, door stores, or door shops. We do not sell our products to general contractors without door finishing facilities or capabilities. We mainly deal with door manufacturers and millworks which have experience to build high-end doors.

Problem Solved.

Sing Stile and Rail Doors

The Sing-style approach to stile and rail doors is a horse of a different color amidst the age-old door industry. Sing stile and rail doors are lighter in weight and stronger than steel yet made of nearly any flat building material available, not matter how they’re built.

Sing Stile and Rail Look

Our most sought-after stile and rail manufacturing method produces a stile-and-rail-looking door from a solid composite Sing door slab which feature alternating wood grain orientations on the door surface to emulate the look and feel of a stile and rail door without any weak spots.

The resulting Sing Stile and rail door made of a solid door panel is the strongest, lightweight, most insulated, Eco-friendly door proudly made in the USA.

Sing Stile and Rail Construction

Even among the most tried and true stile and rail door manufacturers, they know that the only way to build a large stile and rail door which can be guaranteed not to warp for 50 years, is with Sing Core inside.

Rather than build a stile and rail looking surface and applying it to a solid slab of Sing Core, traditional stile and rail manufacturers prefer to use stile and rail components with Sing Core inside.

Basically, this means that all the stile and rail components are manufactured by Sing Core in building material formats which are very similar to our post and beam configurations, and/or furniture panels. These are assembled by your favorite stile and rail door builder just as they would any traditional wood stile and rail door components.

Rated at 660 PSI, Sing Core is stronger than steel pound for pound, thanks to Peter Sing’s patented solid composite torsion box core substrate, incredible unsupported spans are possible, enabling doors with Sing Core inside to outperform any other lightweight door.

50 Year Stile and Rail Guarantee

Professional grade Sing Core has such a high precision tolerance (+/- .006 in.) and withstands just about any variance in conditions across the board, that these are the only door which can be guaranteed not to warp, bend, twist, or otherwise fail for 50 years, including full structure warranty.
