LaCantina Doors Line Achieves Impact Rating
LaCantina Doors announced it has received an overall performance rating of DP70 for its aluminum thermally controlled product line. It is currently awaiting approval from Miami Dade County on its impact-rated system, which it says meets and exceeds the performance requirements. The new system is available exclusively with the company’s aluminum thermally controlled bi-fold doors, providing the performance in HVHZ conditions and other wind-borne areas. The new system is offered in a range of configurations, multiple sill types and two glass options. This is LaCantina’s first impact-rated system, and as a result of its DP70 rating, complies with the Florida Building Codes and for use in other wind-borne areas outside the High Velocity Hurricane Zone.
