"The LaCantina folding doors are unique in that they offer openings of basically unlimited width," states Ed Ogosta, founder of Edward Ogosta Architecture. "As an architect, I appreciate the numerous options these doors come with, such as finishes, panel sizes, and details, allowing them to work great in any aesthetic."

Featuring inswing or outswing flexibility, the folding door system offers unlimited configurations up to 65’ wide. This type of expansiveness not only allows for plenty of natural light, but also seamless indoor-outdoor living.

"By opening a house at both ends with the various LaCantina doors, light, air, and movement are all able to flow freely throughout the space," Ogosta notes, "which assists in creating an intimate oasis of luminosity, atmosphere, and serenity."

Along with folding doors, LaCantina also offers folding servery windows, which assist in facilitating easy entertaining. Because this unique application doesn’t require a bottom track, the kitchen countertop can seamlessly continue from indoors to out.

2. The Multi-Slide System

Beautifully blending symmetry, strength, and performance, the multi-slide doors are another superb option for establishing an intimate indoor-outdoor connection. With the combination of architectural grade materials and AAMA-certified low-profile wheels, these oversized door panels slide away effortlessly without having to interrupt living areas. 

Whether you’re looking to foster an indoor-outdoor connection in your kitchen, living area, bedroom, or bath, the LaCantina multi-slide system is available in multiple options, including pocketing and zero-post corner configurations.

"The LaCantina doors not only create a seamless transition between the interior and exterior spaces, but they’re also incredibly easy to use," explains architect Trace Wilson, founder of Materia-LLC. "I’ve collaborated with LaCantina for the last 12 years and I am continually impressed by how well their doors maintain their integrity and form." 

The multi-slide doors have a unique interlocking track design, which adds to their strength and structure. More so, the advanced seal system provides ultimate weather protection, no matter the setting.

3. The Swing Door System

Wider and taller than typical swing doors, the LaCantina swing doors utilize heavy duty architectural stainless hinges and robust door panels. Featuring the company’s signature narrow stile and rail profiles, these doors perfectly match the folding and multi-slide systems—creating the ideal solution for a complete door package. 

Thanks to the double-leaf bearing hinges, the swing doors provide greater support for large panel weights.

With single and double door configurations available, the swing doors also come with a concealed multi-point locking system for ease of operation and security. Like all the other LaCantina products, the swing doors feature Cardinal Glass, the world’s leading glass manufacturer which has the ability to match any LaCantina door and window package, as well as meet any energy code requirement. 

Along with encouraging indoor-outdoor living, all LaCantina doors have been designed to integrate with the company’s versatile screening systems, which further enhances the LaCantina matching product line. When not in use, the screens can neatly slide behind the door openings.

LaCantina door systems can also be combined to create zero-post corners, as pictured below. The zero-post corner system is a unique application that permits uninterrupted views, without the need for a supporting wall or post. 

Requiring no support wall or post, the zero-post corner system easily extends any indoor living space to the outdoors while also allowing crisp, clean air to seep throughout the home.
