New Aluminum-Wood Folding Doors Give You the Best From LaCantina Doors
Press release date: Mar 02, 2009
VISTA, Calif., March 2 -- LaCantina Doors is starting 2009 off with its most innovative door to date; the Aluminum-Wood system. Affectionately named by us as "Aliwood," this hybrid door combines the consistency and strength of aluminum with the beauty of a selection of real wood interiors.
Virtually identical in appearance to our most popular clad-wood product, the Aliwood is catching attention by simply providing everything you want with a low-maintenance exterior folding door system. New concealed locking mechanisms are standard, providing a discrete locking function with an easy turn of the handle.
As the country has taken in the effects of the recession and the housing crisis, LaCantina Doors has continued to focus on designing and manufacturing products that improve the LaCantina experience. Matt Power, President of LaCantina Doors said, "Our product testing and customer feedback on the Aliwood makes us very confident that people will want to take advantage of its features and value."
LaCantina Doors evolved from a long history of a custom door and window manufacturer that started in Melbourne, Australia as Jones Joinery. Jones Joinery adapted to the times and soon became a leading manufacturer of folding door systems in Australia. With success and award-winning projects, to storefronts and train stations LaCantina Doors was established in the United States in 2003.
Today, LaCantina Doors is a growing company with manufacturing facilities in Southern California. Their US manufactured folding door product line includes the Wood, Clad, Aluminum and its newest addition, Aluminum-Wood. LaCantina Doors continues to grow with ongoing development of design improvements and features specifically to ensure that the doors are built to perform and built to last. We have our own signature door panel, featuring a narrow-stile and rail profile, allowing the right balance of glass and light.
LaCantina Doors is on board with being green; packaging most of their products in recycled materials as well as using FSC certified wood in its Wood Door series.
LaCantina Doors continues to be innovative with design and function catering to every customer's needs and wants. For all of the latest on LaCantina Doors, visit our website at www.lacantinadoors.com.
