Introducing warp-free wood to the woodworking industry is a tough nut to crack. Since mankind has begun to craft items from wood, it is known that natural wood grain is so elegant, but the fact remains that the wood continues to respond to the elements even after the tree is harvested for building materials.
Of course, some wood grains have a greater propensity to move than others, and only some designs can accommodate a certain degree of movement. For instance, the American Institute of Architects (AIA) allows for this movement in wood doors. They say if a door warps ¼” or less along a 7 ft. span, this is considered a straight, not warped door. Manufacturers of door hardware, pre-hangers, and installers all allow for this movement of doors that are considered to be straight.
That was prior to inventor Peter Sing’s introduction of his patented and patent-pending warp-free wood technology. Door configurations are made of warp-free wood panels, but Sing Core’s warp-free wood in also available in warp-free post and beam configurations as well.
You can see how this might affect the woodworking industry, a market segment that for many years, an idea of having a warp-free wood product would be inconceivable.
Yet, here the door industry is, embracing Sing Core’s warp-free technology wholeheartedly. The best door companies, millworks, and custom manufacturers of large or oversized doors all rely on Sing Core to solve the problems associated with warping wood. This is particularly a pressing issue when considering whether to take a project that features larger doors.
The main concern is that those huge doors are going to warp, and everyone knows that. It is increasingly difficult to build and maintain customer confidence when offered a warranty on the entire project, but not the oversized doors. Those will not be covered, and the builders don’t particularly want to be tasked with servicing them. Then, the customer is referred to a company which exists only to service and repair failing doors. Yes, this has created a whole new sub-industry for door repair shops.
Now, there is a solution:
Now, door companies who rely on Sing Core’s warp-free wood to solve the problems of warping wood doors can include and cover those oversized doors with their standard warranty. Maybe their standard warranty is 10 years. No problem, because they are also covered by Sing Core’s
50-Year Warp-Free Guarantee
Yes, wooden doors made with Sing’s core inside are guaranteed not to warp, bend, twist, or otherwise fail (including delamination) for 50 years. A claim like this is unheard of in the wood industry, and no other Eco-friendly, lightweight building material could come close to making such a promise.
And as these most prestigious architects, engineers, companies, and craftspeople know and confess,
“There is just no other way to do it.”
That’s what they all say.
Of course, many other things could be made of Sing Core’s warp-free wood. But, large doors lead the pack; because the bigger the door, the more prestigious the project. There is only one way to keep it straight and true.
Accomplishing such a feat is not easy. Sing Core has an entire team, referred to as his True Flat Team, which reviews all the aspects of every door. This includes the proposed materials, the application, where the door will be located (structurally and geologically), and how its interior should be designed to accommodate its regular use.
High-end projects and discerning clientele only want the best and insist on having such precision with Sing Core inside their doors which boasts .006-inch tolerances, besides being warp-free.
