LaCantina Doors Broadens its Offerings as it Puts a Fresh Spin on Vinyl Folding Doors.

LaCantinaLogoStackedLaCantina Doors (LaCantina), best known for providing the most innovative folding sliding and swinging door systems to create open spaces in homes and businesses is setting a new standard for the Vinyl Door market by bringing contemporary design and high performance with its new Vinyl Folding system.

July20165The new Vinyl Folding System appeals to the needs of a broader market who wants the performance, aesthetics, and the quality they have come to expect from LaCantina. The new Vinyl System features contemporary styling with clean profiles and an exclusive hardware package. LaCantina Vinyl is energy efficient, low maintenance, and performs well in all environments, making it a perfect choice for consumers. The Vinyl Door System is available in standard and custom door sizes up to 8 feet tall and 18 feet wide in a range of popular configurations.

July20166.1“We recognized a real need in the marketplace for a contemporary, high quality vinyl door,” noted Lee Maughan, General Manager, Vice President, LaCantina Doors “As leaders in the industry, we are confident that our new Vinyl Folding Door system will deliver on our brand promise of innovation, performance, quality and value. The new Vinyl System is the ideal solution for home renovations, as well as custom and production homebuilders.”

The Vinyl door panels feature narrow 2 15/16” stile and rail profile for more glass and light. The Vinyl system’s exclusive new hardware package is available in stainless or bronze finish. Concealed multi-point locking provides added security and standard LoE glass improves energy efficiency. Standard color options include white or tan.

With the introduction of its new Vinyl Folding system, LaCantina continues to solidify its position as the single source for complete and perfectly matching large opening door packages.

July20167LaCantina’s Hinged/Swing Door: Utilizing heavy duty, architectural stainless steel hinges and our robust door panels engineered for taller and wider openings, our new swing doors create more space than typical single and French doors. Durable double leaf bearing hinges provide greater support for large panel weights. LaCantina offers a variety of sill options which includes a standard weather resistant sill, flush guide sill for smooth floors to floor transitions, and an ADA compliant sill for both interior and exterior applications in even the harshest of environments.

July20168Bi-Folding Configuration: The LaCantina folding door system is what we are renowned to have perfected. As a pioneer in folding door systems LaCantina sets the standard for style, function and performance. Using the highest quality rolling hardware and robust panel and frame designs, our systems provide smooth and effortless operation unmatched by other large opening door systems. With the ability to span any size opening, multiple configurations and options to meet the demands of any project, a LaCantina folding door system is the perfect choice.

July20169LaCantina's Multi-Slide: LaCantina Doors has created a new class of multi slide door by combining the preferred features of performance, strength and symmetry of a high end lift & slide door system and the functionality and value of a multi slide. Our new class of multi slide provides optimal aesthetics and performance. Our panel design, engineered to the demands of a folding system, adapt perfectly to a more robust and unmatched sliding door. With the same clean minimal designs as our folding systems, our matching narrow stiles and low profile rails that incorporate our custom high performance roller assembly mean symmetry and style are never compromised. Our new multi slide door system underwent extensive air/water and structural testing, with results far exceeding the industry standards that are typical of multi slide products.

Offering the same brand promise of innovation, performance, value and quality, our new class of multi slide is a perfect match to our folding and swing doors for the complete door package.

LaCantina features Cardinal Glass- the world's leading glass manufacturer with the ability to match any door and window package and meet any energy code requirement. Our wide range of glass options provide you with the highest level of comfort and savings year-round fit for any weather. Offering both dual and triple glaze options, our dual glazed Low-E tempered glass is standard on all LaCantina Door systems for better performance. LaCantina also offers Cardinal's latest innovation, Neat Glass, which is easier to clean, lower maintenance and more energy efficient.
