San Diego, CA – (December 17, 2018) – LaCantina Door’s (LaCantina) Contemporary Clad was selected as one of the Top 50 products in 2018 by Architectural Products, the leading business publication magazine focused on products, materials and applications for the architectural market involved in commercial and institutional building design. This is the 16th year that Architectural Products has produced this coveted list.

LaCantina’s Contemporary Clad was chosen from among the thousands of products featured in the pages of the magazine throughout the past year. The Reader’s Choice Top 50 winners list represents those products that have attracted the most interest among the Architectural Products audience as measured by a combination of reader response and editorial staff input over the past 12 months.
