Aluminum Bench

aluminum park bench made of torsion box composite sandwich panelsOne of our favorite projects to discover the full potential of the latest discovery of torsion box composite plywood honeycomb panels from Sing Core is the aluminum bench.

The Sing Sandwich Panels are available from your local lumber yard or Lowe’s Home Improvement Center in one-inch thickness. It is so easy to work with. You can use it just like any ordinary plywood. no special tools are needed and your end product with lightweight, yet stronger than steel and weather resistant.

Simply cut and glue together any number of layers that you need to obtain the thickness that satisfies the needs of your project.

First, create the underlying structure of the bench using your resulting wood-glue-bonded structure.

Then cover the exposed areas with .062 aluminum. This makes this lightweight bench nearly impossible to fail in any extreme weather condition.

Congratulations.

You have built the most amazing metal bench that will withstand the test of time.

How strong is it?

So strong, in fact, that lining up a whole gaggle of students standing on your bench causes zero deflection.

Your aluminum bench will look magnificent for centuries in your favorite park setting.

 

 

Insulated Sheds

yard and garden shed built with torsion box composite plywood honeycomb panels pre insulatedOur research has uncovered the fastest and easiest way to build an insulated shed structure using revolutionary patented torsion box composite plywood honeycomb panels.

These new building materials come in one-inch thickness that are strong enough to build a structure with several stories without framing with this one inch wall design construction.

What? No framing?

That’s right. The frame is actually built in to the one inch wall.

The insulation is also built into the one inch wall with an R value of 6.5 per inch. Want more insulation? Simply put two panels together for a two inch wall for R-13.

How do I put panels together?

These Sing Panels are so versatile, you can easily adhere two panels together using regular wood carpenter’s glue. You can even add your own wood frames and exterior materials using cold-press, vacuum press, or manual press methods commonly used in wood shop.

Versatility

fast and easy insulated storage shed assembly with torsion box composite plywood honeycomb panels no mold no mildewWith the structure strength of Sing Sandwich Panels and the ease of bonding almost any other material to it, gives you complete control over the thickness, R-Value, exterior material, etc… Let your creativity run wild

How strong is it?

Other honeycomb cores have a PSI of 10 to 100, this patented material boasts 660 PSI. That’s stronger than steel pound for pound.

How do I get it?

The manufacturer, Sing Core, only sells wholesale, but you can ask for Sing Sandwich Panels from your favorite lumber yard or Lowe’s Home Improvement Center.

Help Wanted: Tiny House Drivers

Sing Core is seeking independent truck owners who would like to join the Sing team and help in the delivery of their Sing Tiny House around the United States. They also invite drivers from all over the USA due to crowd manufacturing of their tiny houses. Here is more information:

Tiny House Drivers Wanted

Sing Core is building tiny houses for individuals who seek only the best Eco-friendly Tiny House that is lightweight, high-strength and withstand the test of time.

Folding Modular House Competition

Four years ago a company introduced a concept that was recently presented to Sing Core. And excellent idea that did not work out well due to not having access to the adequate building materials.

This aluminum shelter was a great design, being unfolded and assembled quickly is a magnificent concept for a temporary structure, but not being insulated makes it only a high quality tent structure, or a hot box in the sun.

Take the Challenge

Sing Core would like to partner with the right person/company to redesign this folding and/or modular concept.

Introduction-to-Container-Homes-Buildings-1Sing Core will provide you with the materials to build a complete 8 ft x 19 ft structure. We will supply windows, door and hinges for folding design at below cost. Structure materials will include reinforced torsion box Sing Sandwich panels with aluminum exterior surface (paintable and weatherproof) and plywood interior walls.

We believe in this concept and the value that it would have to the world at large. As easy and quickly as they can be built, they could be dismantled, broken down and moved to another location with little cost or effort.

Last year, we introduced our World’s Smallest House being built in five-and-a-half minutes to battle homelessness and to provide moveable temporary shelter.

This is the next logical step, and Sing Core is the missing ingredient in designs that were not accepted by the marketplace at large.

Imagine building a flat packed home in very little time that can be shipped to any location via truck and trailer in quantity at very little cost due to being so lightweight yet stronger than steel. Sing Core makes these small home building kits possible and inexpensive.

We need your help.

Our staff and factory is overloaded with building lightweight, high strength doors and building components and does not have the time right now to engineer this pop up house structure of the future.

That’s where you come in.

We will help subsidize your genius if you can help us design these folding and/or modular structure small homes.

What’s in it for you?

We will supply you with the same materials that we would supply our engineering team to do the project in-house at below wholesale cost.

What do you do for us?

Help us design the most effective house kits, supply us with your design details, and a timed video of the assembly process.

Your reward?

Get all the materials at below cost (and we will help with shipping costs) and we will feature your design skills on our high-traffic web site, as you help us to make the world a better place with Sing Core. Plus, you will have a partnership invitation from us to help provide your design to the world.

Limited Offer

This offer is only made available to interested parties for a limited time. The only reason we are making this offer is because we are too busy to do it ourselves, but we believe that this is such a significant and needed application, that we will help you help us take this to market, if you can do it quickly and efficiently.

Looking forwarding to your joining the Sing team for a better world,

-Inventor, Peter Sing

How to Build Using Sing Core

There are endless opportunities to be creative with Sing Core material. First, though, it’s important that you get a handle on the manufacturing process, so taht you can create the most amazing works of art that are beautiful, eco-friendly, lightweight, and stronger than steel as we continue our commitment to keeping crowd manufacturing alive.

Sing-Core-Block-147Here is an example of how to build a 2 foot by 4 foot panel using our Sing Core Block. First you lay your bottom skin face-down on your surface. Then you cover with a layer of urethane glue. Put your exterior wood staves (edges) into place, as shown in the photo to the right.

Sing-Core-Block-Drop-In-2Sing Core Block is utilizes our, “drop-in,” system. Basically, all you need is to slice the Sing core lock your desired thickness as determined by your specifications. Install your sliced Sing Core Block by placing it inside your wood perimeter to fill the vacant space with Sing Core Block material.

Continue to fill the empty space with additional sections of Sing Core Block material until the space is nearly filled.

Sing-Core-Block-Drop-In-5

Here’s an exampled of Sing Core Block-filled vacancy

Sing-Core-Block-152Next apply a layer of urethane glue to the top of all the surface material(s) including the exposed Sing Core Block and the top-side of the wood staves as shown in the photo to the right.

Sing-Core-Block-153The honeycomb torsion box provides the strength, while the urethane glue adds to the structural integrity of the end product, keeping it from delaminating under extreme conditions or over long periods of time.

Once you have a nice coat of urethane glue on the entire top surface, you are now ready to apply the top skin.

 

Sing-Core-Block-155

This is a photo of the applied top skins in place.

Sing-Core-Block-Stack-Clamping

Sing Press – No Equipment Necessary

Once you have all your glue and components into place, the panel(s) need to be cold-pressed for proper adhesion and dry-time. Dry times vary according to the type of glue that you use. We suggest using a slow-drying glue for a higher quality end-product.

Sing-Core-Block-Press

Hydraulic Press

If your facility already has a commercial hydraulic press, then by all means use that. Many of our craftsmen who are Sing Hardwood manufacturers avoid any equipment cost by utilizing the Sing Press model, that is constructed out of perfectly straight Sing Panels on the top and bottom and a few clamps. There is no structural advantage of using a commercial press, as the results are the same.

 

You can see that very little energy is expended in the manufacturing of your Sing Hardwood, and there is little or no waste.

On-Hand = On-Demand

In the demonstrations (above) it is easy to imagine that you as the craftsman have complete control of the creation process. You can make your own Sing Hardwood on-demand at your location, avoiding any shipping expense or time… and if you need a piece of material that you suddenly find yourself out-of-stock… In an emergency, you could make your own (insert any hardwood or lumber product you want) if you have some Sing Core Block on-hand.

Wholesale Resource

Sing Core orders certain components by the rail car. We can pass on some of our savings to the craftsmen who use our Sing Core Block technology. You may find it beneficial to obtain wood staves, hardwood skins, glue (or other materials) from us to take advantage of our bulk buying power.

Note: For structural purposes, you as the manufacturer are liable for testing, licensure and code approval. Sing Core is not liable for any unauthorized use of any product created off-site using our patented Sing Core Block material. In the event that you intent to use your Sing Core Block material purposes, we may assist you in the process of getting the required testing completed.
