LaCantina Doors are perfect for any space. Their innovative design connects both indoors and out, maximizing any space and defines a true outdoor living experience.
A critical aspect of Green Design, involves the indoor air quality for healthy living environments. LaCantina Doors open up areas typically blocked for walls, and aid in whole house air circulation, bringing clean and fresh air into any structure.
LaCantina Doors are made locally in Oceanside, CA. A close proximity to areas of high demand for our product, we contribute to Green design by minimizing fuel and transportation costs normally associated by importing products from areas outside of the United States.

Most of our LaCantina Doors are packed and shipped using recycled materials providing safe transport and smart use of renewable resources. Our newest product line is an all-aluminum system which is a highly renewable material and can eliminate the use of all-wood components when appropriate.
