Connecting Torsion Box Composite Panels

Torsion box composite sandwich panels require no tongue-and-groove. Why? Because they are straight and true and will not warp or twist over time. Therefore, assembling multiple lengths of these sandwich panels is easy, painless and requires no tongue-and-groove to act as anti-warp control. By adding wood edges, or frames the resulting panels can be joined edge-to-edge with standard carpenter glue, leaving a perfect seam with the least amount of shifting every time.

Just try that with solid wood… If you try to join solid wood, you neet to sand it to make it flat and even… And a perfect seam today, may not be as impressive tomorrow, a week or a year later.

There are 3 ways to join torsion box sandwich panels

Simple Joining

The simplest and least expensive way to join sing panels is to join in any way according to your budget and/or expertise.

Due to Sing Panels being so straight and true it is easier to join panels together because they line up perfectly unlike other building materials.

 

sing-core-panel-cam-locks-3sing-core-panel-cam-locks-2In many cases, for instance, standard 4×8 panels can be nailed, glued or channel-joined quickly and easily with satisfactory results.

Other options for fastening panels may include cam locks (see examples left and right) that can be pre-installed, making assembly and joining easy and more secure.

The cam-lock solution is a high-demand solution for panels that are routinely assembled and disassembled, especially in moveable walls, trade show booths, and various wall cladding applications.

Thru-bolt Joining

One of the most inexpensive and secure ways to join torsion box sandwich panels is by utilizing a simple nut and bolt connection method, especially, if the panels will be routinely or repeatedly assembled and disassembled.

Stainless steel nuts and bolts offer the safety and security when joining wood-framed torsion box sandwich panels.

Biscuit Joining

If you have rudimentary wood working skills you could prepare your sandwich panels for biscuit joining by doing it yourself or outsourcing to your favorite millwork.

Especially for large projects, this enables your torsion box honeycomb panels to assembled and disassembled and transported easily, then joined on-site.

Advanced Large Panels

At the factory Sing Core specializes in extremely large panels (up to 50 feet) that are extremely true flat, the DIY enthusiast can also build high quality oversized projects with confidence and excellent results.

Connectors for Connecting

Cam-Locks

One of our many features is the ability to add fasteners/locks to our panels…one example of this is the “S-Hook Lock” with a turn of the hex wrench you can fasten or unfasten your panels quickly.

The “S-Hook” fastening lock that is attached to the side of these panels to allow for easy assembly of the wall system.

With a quick turn of your wrist on the hex key your panels will be attached to each other.

 

 

 

 

Barn Door Assembly or ‘H’ Channel

If you are planning to keep your panels as a permanent structure you may choose the H-Channel attachment feature. Apply your adhesive the slide panel into the channel on each side then either veneer over the panel and channel or you may choose to putty, sand and paint your panels to cover over the H-channel.

Tongue and Groove

Tongue and groove is another fastening choice especially if you using our panels for flooring or ceiling. Make a nice almost seamless connection but give wood veneer a hardwood flooring appearance.

Biscuit Joint

This is a modified biscuit joint attachment. Similar to the H-joint the you are using a single long “beam” as the connector and gluing them together. Best use is for oversize tables (such as vacuum tables) and oversize doors as well. Because our panels are made of honeycomb rather than solid wood, they will not warp. Our honeycomb is light and strong.

Ship Lap

The ever popular ship lap as a connector alternative.

With the wide variety of applications for Sing Core panels, posts and beams, and equally diverse selection of fasteners are used in practical installations.sing-core-panel-cam-locks-2Here are some of the most popular fastening systems used today:Norse Inc. Latches
