Standard Sing Core exterior doors are manufactured with patented Sing Core material as the base interior substrate of the door. The Sing Core substrate material is created using a vertical grain natural wood torsion box design while the traditionally empty voids are filled wall to wall with recycled foam. The standard foam material is recycled rigid EPS foam. A 10 inch natural wood lock block is positioned centered at 37 inches for door knob and locking mechanism placement. The core material is wood framed by 1.5 inch natural wood for finishing strength and attaching hardware. The torsion box is completed by adhering an exterior surface material (skin) in your choice of marine grade plywood, fiberglass (FRP) or aluminum. Bonding agent used in adhesion of the entire composite material is formaldehyde-free.
Standard Sing Core Exterior Doors do not include frame.
Every Sing Core manufactured door is unfinished and guaranteed for 10 years for structural integrity.

* Note: STC rating varies according to size, thickness, skin, and other factors. Sing Core does not rate doors, although we are fortunate enough to have one of the best sound testing labs in the world, here in the Pacific Northwest. If you require a specific STC rating, Sing Core can build a door to your architectural specifications and have the resulting door tested at our rating facility for an official rating.
