25-foot-long-oak-wood-stave-table-lightweight-high-strength-true-flat-guaranteed

A high-end designer was sought out to deliver to their client at one-piece, 25 foot oak, perfectly flat conference table that would not be too heavy to move.

True Flat Guarantee premium certified true flatBased on the reputation of the designer to deliver results to this client, they searched far and wide (even extending to overseas) to find a solution.

Sing Core helped to bring the artists design to life. Using our patented technology we were able to help create this true flat 25 foot oak wood stave conference table that is five feet wide and 2 inches thick.

The ends had to be made with enough solid wood that his contractor could round them out during finishing.

carriagedoorsSing Core Carriage Doors are the perfect adornment for your garage, studio or barn, giving you an unsurpassed aesthetic appeal while being functional and extremely structurally superior.

Each Sing Core Carriage Door is a precision garage door that is handcrafted in the USA and custom built to your specifications.

While capturing the beauty of century old carriage doors, Sing Core Carriage Doors are a fusion of old world technology and space-age technology to create a carriage door that is brilliantly adaptable, functional and will last for centuries.

Save Money

See: Save $7000 on Carriage Doors. Sing Core Carriage Doors are the economically sound buyer’s choice for so many reasons, but have many ways to save you money. For instance,

Transportation and installation of your carriage doors is easier and less expensive due to weighing so much less than others.

Sing-Core-Carriage-DoorsBeing lightweight also means less strain on the hardware and structure with normal use.

Our pre-insulated carriage doors save you heating and cooling costs of your interior space.

The high-strength, true flat and long-life attributes, means less maintenance costs over time.

Sing Core Carriage Doors are competitively priced in comparison to other carriage doors. Why not take advantage of owning a superior end product, with all the added value of Sing Core without having to compromise your expectations, and are available in large, oversized doors.

Sing carriage doors vs. other overhead garage doors

Many people are making the change from overhead garage doors. Ask your overhead garage door company about Sing Carriage Doors.

Take advantage of this new technology increasing sales and profit by increasing value-added benefits and features, while decreasing costs and overhead.

  1. rob-Bi-fold-1-openFunctional Sing Core enables the door manufacturer to build a similar or better than a high-end entrance door. Sing carriage doors are fully insulated, sound deadening, true flat, air tight, lightweight and super strong (backed by a 10 year structural guarantee).
  2. Replace Overhead Doors Many people are switching over from overhead doors to more elegant carriage doors, especially when converting a garage to a work shop, office space or even an extra guest room. Sing carriage doors can be air tight, effectively securing your space for heating in the winter and air conditioning in the summer. Sing Core is made of 90% foam and structure torsion box grids. Sing doors do not expand or move like solid wood carriage doors. This prevents the door from expanding due to the moisture and temperature change which can lead to air leakage or becoming too tight to close the door securely.
  3. Visually Impressive Compared to other garage doors and other carriage doors, sing carriage doors are true flat which will be easy to add design molding, various surface skins and/or textures, design and color detail by adding wood trim or molding. The resulting door is beautiful, enhancing the structure with unparalleled exquisite detail that remains close and tight over time without sagging even after years of use.
  4. Low Cost Carriage doors are the choice of high-end users and come with an equally high price tag. For instance a 16 foot pair of carriage doors could easily retail for $8,000.00, yet Sing door planks are only a fraction (approximately 80% less) of the cost. In comparison to overhead garage doors, customers will often choose the Sing carriage door because they cost less, yet are high-end, more attractive and function better than other garage doors. Once you consider the added cost of metal overhead doors, hardware and opener, Sing carriage doors are much less expensive. Our garage door companies reduce their costs while delivering more for their clients without sacrificing profit margin.
  5. Air tight carriage doors guaranteed lightweight high strength true flat long lifeEasy to Build and Install Sing Core carriage door is lightweight, strong, true flat and works with regular hinges making it easy to move and install. When we first introduced Sing carriage doors, we attracted many DIY end-users who embrace the do-it-yourself philosophy that is becoming more of a trend. Highly successful results were enjoyed by these non-wood working trade professionals. If they can do it, so can you.
  6. Easy to Market Obviously the high-end design and appearance of Sing Carriage doors are the key to engaging homeowners, clients and customers visually. But when you throw in all the added benefits, like, increased functionality, higher quality, sleek and styled appearance, increased lifespan, then you surprise them with a price-tag that is a fraction of a metal overhead or other type of garage door… it’s an easy decision.
  7. Wide Variety of Surface Material Options Sing carriage doors have the largest selection of surface materials to accommodate any look, feel or design of any project. For instance, more popular door skins for Sing carriage doors include: wood, plywood, moisture resistant MDF, aluminum, stainless steel, FRP (fiber reinforced plastic), etc…
  8. Less Maintenance Compared to regular wood doors, Sing Core doors stay true flat, which prevents the moisture from soaking into the skin, like other solid wood and plywood that are likely to generate surface cracks, causing water to get into the inner layer of wood fiber, even when using proper sealants. Sing Core doors do not crack ensuring longer life for sealant/coating compared to any wood door, so you don’t have to worry about how to fix garage door. See characteristics, including rot resistance.
  9. Quality Assurance  Sing Core is commonly used for extremely high-end, demanding jobs; this is why we offer the best structure warranty in the industry. We are making the largest doors in the door industry and boldly back them up with a 10-year warranty.
  10. Custom Size Sing carriage doors are available in any size. Custom sizing (even large, oversize) in any thickness, most any skin option, specialized insulated foam to accommodate your specifications, along with a variety of design molding. With Sing carriage doors, the sky’s the limit.

How to Build a True Flat Long Lasting Carriage Door

Rot-resistant-wood-panels-will-not-warp-twist-crack-or-cup-for-long-lasting-true-flatnessWood-based carriage doors are exposed to a variety of weather conditions, glaring sun, wind and rain and it is important to keep the surface primed and coated to make sure that it does not crack while exposed to weather. Sing carriage doors prolong functionality of surface treatments due to being made with patented Sing Core’s torsion box structure that holds the wood surface to maintain a forever flat surface without twisting or cracking.

You may further weather-protect – even for withstanding the most severe weather conditions – by integrating other material into the surface of your Sing carriage door. Surface skins of aluminum, FRP or stainless steel will not crack like natural wood or plywood to prevent compromise of your Sing carriage door.

If you like the look of solid wood but seek high-performance and longevity, you can use Sing aluminum as your true flat carriage door’s substrate, you will be able to maintain straightness of your doors making them less likely to crack due to movement cause by expansion and contraction of the wood surface material.

See how Sing Panel’s torsion box structure prevents surface crack because of the patented Sing Core’s unique characteristics. To keep your carriage door true flat is a challenge for solid wood or even plywood. Sing Core and Sing Panel master true flat technology for very high-end doors requiring less that 1/16 inch deflection which is more costly.

Sing carriage doors far exceed the AWI industry standard or ¼ inch deflection to be considered flat.

Do-it-Yourself Carriage Doors for DIY Aficionados

For the homeowner/do it yourself craftsman, you can get Sing Panels made to your specifications, and do all the decorative trim and finish-work yourself, saving you thousands of dollars, while having the most lightweight (with the ability to use regular, inexpensive hardware) elegant and energy efficient carriage doors that are easy to install, stronger than steel and will last lifetimes. Imagine: No more overhead garage door repair needed.

Though Sing Core Carriage Doors can be customized to any specification, 
an example of our standard Carriage Door would be:
      • 2 inches thick w/composite sandwich composition
      • Can feature any standard exterior overlay
            o Wood veneer (variety to specs)
            o Solid Wood stave (any available wood species)

Creating the Right Sing Panel

The experts at Sing Core have years of experience in solving the difficult issues that face architects, designers and contractors when face with challenges dealing with uncompromised structural integrity and weight restrictions. Oftentimes the secret to the proper solution depends in a combination of Sing Core and various surface materials. The skin or surface material is not only the appearance of the Sing panel, but it is critical for the true flatness and smoothness which easy to use as paint grade, strength and affects the overall weight. Click here for architectural specs.

Sing Panel comes in three different varieties: Standard, Professional and Hot-Press-Ready-Series

1 True Flat

Surface skin should use same material if possible. The surface material should use less porous materials to avoid moisture absorption. Aluminum is superior to none moisture absorbing MDF, Masonite, etc… The aluminum can be paint grade by using acid etching primer, or other alternatives include adding plywood, particle board, MDF on top of the aluminum using a hot or cold press with veneer or wood stave to create a wood grain doors or panels.

2 Thickness of Skin or Surface Materials

We use material as thin as .020 aluminum, HPL to 3/4 inch, AB plywood and marine grade plywood is the most integrous choice due to the non-void high quality veneer used as plywood core. The most common skins include 1/8” plywood, 1/4″ plywood and 3/8” plywood. But if you are in need of a one-inch thick door that is 20 ft in length then aluminum will be the best option. Please contact us if you need help.

3 Strength

The strength depends on the thickness of the panel. For instance, if you double the thickness it will be 4 times the strength. The thickness of the skin could make up the extra strength but increasing the thickness to gain strength will result in added weight, which may compromise the end result. The answer is usually a combination of matching the right Sing Core width with the appropriate surface material to achieve the desired results without loss of structural integrity or unnecessary additional weight.

4 Sing Core Grids Size Selection

There are 3 types of Sing Core grid sizes:

  • LARGE: 16 square inch
  • MEDIUM: 9 sq inch, and
  • SMALL: 4 square inch

The smaller grids have higher compression strength. Mostly common used are 3 inch x 3 inch at 9 sq inch or equivalent. For extremely lightweight panel, the largest grids size will be the proper choice.

5 Foam Options

Sing Core standard foam which is used to bond and fill the voids in the internal torsion box structure is constructed with EPS foam w/R-value=3. When clients require more stringent values to meet their specification in terms of better sound deadening, higher insulation value, or water resistance then urethane foam will be the idea material to make up the foam part of the Sing Core structure.

6 Solid Wood or Solid Material Implants

The most common materials used in patented Sing Panels includes solid wood edges and standard implant materials are Douglas Fir or soft wood, and poplar. In addition to solid wood edges, other options include aluminum, plastic and FRP (amongst other custom options that can be matched to your specifications) are commonly used to seal the edge to match the skin material. Unless specified otherwise 12″ x 2″ lock blocks are inserted on both sides 28″ from the bottom of the door.

7 Oversized Sing Panels

We can build panels 10 ft wide 50 ft in length on one solid piece that are nearly seamless with extremely high precision. The joined areas will not move according to the moisture or temperature change. This is an example of our integrous true flat technology.

The low cost solution to build a large door is to use our standard 4 ft x 8 ft panel to join together or edge glue, or use plywood strips connect those Sing Panels together. This type of large panel will not be as flat as our factory built oversize Sing Panel but it will be lightweight and adequately stronger than the most common stile and rail solid lumber doors or walls.

8 Fire Retardant Doors

Sing Core fire retardant doors use 3 mm magnesium board or cement board, ceramic tile and light gauge sheet metal as skin(s) to create fire barriers. These could include added wood stave or wood veneer as final skin for the wood grain or paint grade finish. See specifications.

9 Water Resistance

We suggest using urethane Sing Core for water resistance. Urethane foam is closed-cell which does not absorb moisture and/or water. The adhesives we use are water resistance glues. The skin choice for water resistance will usually be aluminum, FRP or marine grade with proper coating.

The True Flat Challenge

The true flat door is a challenge for architects, door manufacturer, millworks and general contractors, especially if the door is 1 inch thick (or more), over 8 feet wide and/or 16+ feet tall.

If you’re looking for the answer, you might Google search how to build a true flat door.

Oversize doors present the biggest challenge for true flatness, but they also present other issues that must be dealt with in high end homes and/or commercial applications in terms of weight and strength. Again, let’s see what Google has to say about lightweight high strength true flat?

The clear answer is Sing Core; a new invention of material that is playing a major role – not just in building large doors – but almost anything that requires (or desires) to be Eco-friendly, functional yet elegant for inside/outside a home or in building and construction that needs to be light, strong and sustainable

Aluminum composites are common in the aerospace industry, but are cost prohibitive and not user-friendly for mill working or broad earth-bound use. Sing Core is designed to be used in millworks and does not require any specially-trained labor or specialized equipment; treat it just like you would any other standard wood-based substrate material.

Sing Core’s true flat process utilizes vertical grain torsion-box/foam-core/aluminum composites to deliver the solution. Contact us for more information, and if you like, we will show you how to integrate this new technology into your operation.

Meeting the Highest Demands

MoveWallWindowWe maintain the highest degrees of integrity when meeting the requirements of our clients, and their customers, assuring complete satisfaction. Most importantly, proper communication is the key. If you have certain expectations – and you let us know – our team can deliver the product that matches your specifications.

Simply by providing us with your dimensional requirements:

  1. height
  2. width
  3. thickness

along with what your preference for visual presentation (exterior skin material) and performance expectations are, we can provide you with the solution to best suit your application.

How Do We Do It?

When you explain to us what your expectations are, we know how to create the product that meets or exceeds your expectations. For instance, if you require a 17 foot tall oak pivot door that is true flat.

First of all, if the pivot door were solid oak, it would fail the standards test due to the raw material. Natural wood will warp, twist and crack if left to itself. Not to mention being heavy in weight. The excessive weight is an added strain on the integrity of the structure and hardware, increasing maintenance costs over time.

large-lightweight-high-strength-garage-carriage-doorsOur designers will likely prescribe a solution that begins with a Sing Core base material in the center which is by itself perfectly flat. Adding oak wood staves is where the problem comes in; because natural wood is unstable and will compromise the overall structure. To combat this issue, our team may fuse the Sing Core material to aluminum to complete the substrate composite. Then, when the exterior oak faces are applied to the structure; like magic, the result is a lightweight, super strong solution that can be perfectly flat.

The resulting Sing Core lightweight solution does not compromise the structure or the hardware eliminating expensive repairs and/or maintenance.

That’s just one example. Some of the materials used in our true flat composite resolutions that battle the temperature and moisture weaknesses that accompany utilizing natural components (like wood) include

Our lifetime of experience dedicated to solving the challenges of architects, designers and craftsmen who serve the most prestigious clientele, especially in terms of sustainable, lightweight, super strong and true flat solutions that maintain structural integrity over many years, while retaining the beauty and elegance of natural wood (or any other desired external material).

Metal is used across many industries. Metal honeycomb composite is the leader in honeycomb cores used to create stronger and lighter metal panels as well as posts and beams using much less solid metal.

Sing core is the leading technology of metal honeycomb composite material that solves our future Eco-friendly energy solution by using Sing metal honeycomb composite at a fraction of the weight of solid steel, but is stronger, lightweight, and available in steel plate, steel beam and steel panels.

Tell the US Energy Department to do some home work and research the Sing solution. If you believe Sing Core will help us use less metal thanks to Sing honeycomb metal.

Case study #1: Do not waste more precious metal if you could use Sing Metal honeycomb panel, post and beam.

Replace steel by using Sing 13 ft x 3 ft x 1 inch Sing honeycomb metal plate for use in conveyor.

1 Advantage: Precision true flat – within thousands of an inch – the majority of metal fabrication relies heavily on welding that causes the metal to deform. Sing metal uses structural glue, nuts and bolts instead of welding metal plates onto the steel frame which takes more labor, energy and end the product will not match the same precision as Sing Metal honeycomb panels.

2 Easy to fabricate and install – lightweight metal is safer to process, costs less to transport and uses less labor to install.

3 Less cost: Solid metal takes many times more metal than Sing Metal panels, posts and beams. It is expensive to transport, takes more energy to process and the most important thing is that Sing Metal is much less expensive than solid metal planks or sheets. If the strength, lightweight and Eco-friendly attributes are considered you may never go back to solid metal again.

Case study #2: If your seeking to improve your products with greater precision, true flat doors or panels, walls, floors, ceilings, RVs and/or boats then we’d like to teach you to Sing.

True Flat Guarantee premium certified true flatThis is the latest technology to build true flat doors. If we are able to build a true flat door then you can believe that we could make true flat floors, ceilings, walls, etc… all lightweight, high strength, long lasting and endless benefits just by Singing with us.

Doors are a challenge for door manufacturers and mill works if the door is over 8 ft in length and less than in inch thick.

One of the Sing aluminum honeycomb panels are used as door substrate. It used in almost all major high end residential and commercial door applications due to the true flat characteristics. AWI standards for true flat include deflection of ¼ inch, which is unacceptable for Sing Core. We can minimize deflection to 1/8th or even 1/16th according to your pre-arranged specifications and application requirements to ensure satisfaction.

But if you have a door over 12 ft – even over 16 ft tall – and less than 1.5 inch in thickness and you are wishing to have the least deflection than you need to contact www.singcore.com to find the true flat solution which is use aluminum panel as substrate than add MDF or AB plywood for paint grade door or by cold or hot press to add finish veneer to build the most beautiful, strong, lightweight eco friendly door.

Doors made of Sing Aluminum honeycomb substrate do not need to acclimatize due to there being no moisture difference on either side of the door substrate.

Sing Aluminum honeycomb door substrate can be machined or drilled just like wood without retooling or damaging your blades. It is easy to glue with proper clean up procedure.

Large over size doors for high end building project require the true flatness. Patented Sing Core is the ultimate solution for high end mill work across the country.

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERAWorking hand-in-hand with architects, designers, contractors and end-users, Sing Core ceramic substrate helps to solve the structural challenges often associated with ceramic-work including remaining true-flat, while maintaining the highest levels of structural integrity and minimizing construction and maintenance costs.

Applications include:

  • Bathrooms
  • Ceramic tile floors
  • Commercial kitchens
  • Countertops
  • Doors
  • Floors
  • Laboratories
  • Marine
  • Pivot doors
  • Refrigeration floors
  • Saunas
  • Stair treads
  • Tables
  • Wall art
  • Walls

Our Sing composite ceramic skinned panels are ideal for use as fireproof doors. With the Sing Honeycomb as a substrate it will reduce the impact which is the major cause of cracking on ceramics. See our YouTube channel to see the unbreakable mirror video by Sing Honeycomb. This is the same principle that will keep ceramic panels strong.

Other Sing composite panel solutions can be found as other building materials.

Sing Along With American Made Lightweight Tables

Sing Along With American Made Lightweight Tables

By Damon Marturion

Using Sing Core technology, the structural integrity of any table can be magnified exponentially while remaining extremely lightweight.

Inventor, Peter Sing, says, “There is nothing like this in the world that is eco-friendly lightweight, strong and stronger than titanium; plus,” says Sing, “We help put American craftsmen back to work building products that are handmade in the USA and will last the test of time, while making the world a better place.”

I met with Mr. Sing in his international headquarters in McCleary, Washington. Many emerging technologies have been birthed in the Pacific Northwest and Sing’s, patented “Sing Core” is destined to provide a natural and bio-friendly alternative to existing building materials.

Mr. Sing gave me a tour through his warehouse where I viewed a variety of table designs. They covered the entire spectrum from industrial work-tables, to kitchen tables, desktop and coffee-tables. Pretty much, any kind of table you could think of.

Of course, Mr. Sing is enthusiastic about his own products but he really got my attention when he lifted the whole end of an eight foot table with one finger. I thought, “That doesn’t make sense… How’d he do that?” as if it were been some parlor-trick or something… Then he challenges me to try it… and sure enough, it was so lightweight that I could duplicate the demonstration with one finger.

Mr. Sing claimed that though extremely lightweight, that his sing core was stronger than titanium. Sing explains, “Compared to an average size of grid for honeycomb core made of aluminum, titanium and plastic that are less than 1/2 inches, keeping an adequate strength is an issue. Sing core’s internal structure is made of renewable natural wood veneer that is so strong that 2 x 2 inch grids of sing core reached 660 psi when tested by UW Civil Engineering Lab, proving that it is stronger than almost any available honeycomb core.” I thought this was an optimistic appraisal, until he crawled onto this 8 foot table that was only one-inch thick and laid on it as if he was going to take a nap. Then he asked me if I could witness any visible bowing of the table top beneath him. Sure enough, to my naked eye, the table top was perfectly straight.

Not being an engineer, I could not explain what my eyes were seeing, but it confused my reality of what seemed possible and/or my interpretation of the laws of physics as I understood them.

Getting off of the table, he explained to me that while I was looking at tables covered in a variety of material, like Formica (HPL), natural woods and metal; his technology could be applied to any covering resulting in a lightweight, strong and long-lasting end product using no melamine or particle board. Examples included any surface material, “Like any kind of wood product, concrete, any stone – like granite – for instance, acrylics, glass, or even Kevlar for bullet-proof solutions.”

“Try to bend it,” Mr. Sing encourages me to bang, press and sit on the table to challenge its structural integrity, “You can’t. It’s too strong.”

Then turning his hand from horizontal to vertical, he said, “And any table top you see here can be turned to stand, like this, and it becomes a door,” with the same properties, just different hardware and packaging, “or any other thing. It’s the same core material.”

Mr. Sing said that his manufacturing facility was most famous for providing lightweight and “true flat” solutions for oversize doors. He said that this is a common problem for designers and architects as, “The reason most wood products fail is due to warping, twisting and cupping.

As we walked through a maze of assorted furniture, it was obvious to me that Peter Sing’s sing core could be used in nearly any consumer product, as well as structural applications; everything from cutting boards to bridges.

Then he hit me with his philanthropic dream of making the world a better place by putting the power of product design and manufacturing back in the hands of the average American who has (at least) basic woodworking skills. Sing says this is a, “New miracle revolution of true green technology.”

To this end, Mr. Sing has launched his, “Lightweight University,” where he trains and certifies pioneers (anyone from one-man operations to large, corporate manufacturing facilities) in the practical use of his sing core. He went on to say, “Every student, every draftsman, artist, designer or housewife can use sing core to create thousands of product applications if they attend Lightweight University , at least they could benefit by using products made of sing core in their daily lives.”

“Anyone can design,” sing core products, according to Sing. When people come to him with ideas, he empowers them with his technology, allowing them to create things that have never existed before; and if they so desire, supports them as they manufacture their designs and gain market share via Lightweight University (LWU).

Inventor, Peter Sing, says, “This should be in every house in America,” encouraging everyone to, “spread the news… tell your family and friends,” about sing core and his desire to put the power of manufacturing back, “in the hands of American craftsmen,” who can create high-quality, handmade creations that will last for lifetimes, while still being economical enough to compete with cheap (disposable) imports; returning pride to the phrase, “Made in the USA.”
