Folding Patio Doors

Create an Outdoor Living Space with Bi-Fold Doors

Outdoor living spaces, especially in Southern California, can enhance the functionality and aesthetics of your home’s exterior. Bi-fold doors, also known as folding doors or accordion doors, offer several benefits that make them a popular choice for both residential and commercial spaces. Bi-fold doors can be partially opened to allow for controlled ventilation. This is especially useful in warmer weather when you want to let in fresh air without fully opening the doors. LaCantina Doors systems are not only visually appealing but they are built to perform, even in the most severe climates and regions. All their doors systems are developed, designed, tested and engineered for optimal thermal performance, structural integrity and strength and protection against the elements.
