Style with charm and privacy

Product Description

Elegant and streamlined, Capri is a classic awning designed to bring style to your windows with discretion and simplicity. Its slim lines are essential but still sufficient to ensure the incredible strength of its
structure, strong enough to allow up to 20′ widths.
Ideal for protecting immediate indoor areas from overheating and UV rays, Capri can operate manually or electrically and is offered in white, brown, cream, or gray powder-coated finished aluminum. Outfit your Capri in one of hundreds of brilliant color fabrics!

When completely rolled up, Capri can rest discretely above your window. When rolled out, its spring-loaded arms conveniently reach any desired position in seconds, making this retractable awning the ideal response to high noon or low afternoon sun. The Capri can also be lowered 180 degrees for total window privacy if provided with extra fabric.

Created to dress small or large windows, this drop arm retractable awning is easy to install and operate, and it is the modern response to rectangular stationary awnings.

Product Features


Engineered to satisfy the most stringent mechanical requirements, its arms are tested to last twice the expected life span commonly referred to by the industry, and its stainless steel cables are protected with a UV-resistant coating to increase their endurance.


Capri’s sleek design has been achieved to enhance the value of your home. With the wide variety of colors offered today by hundreds of vivid fabrics, the finish of its parts, its compact look when retracted, and the flexuosity of its arms when fully extended, Capri has the look you want.


They say elegance is to stand inconspicuously. So, the discrete design of Capri is meant to blend with the siding of your house while extending its presence to your immediate outdoors, lending graceful ambiance to any setting. You will appreciate Capri’s generous size and uncommon strength.


Built only with the finest materials, Capri frames are finished with electrostatic powder-coated epoxy paint on all its parts to ensure the most durable yet elegant finish against chipping, cracking, and fading. Like all Alutex products, Capri is covered by a ten-year warranty.

Product Highlights 

When we refer to how to motorize an Alutex product, customers can select between two major solutions, with or without override crank service:

Without override service
With override service able to provide manual control in case of blackout
The Eolis 3D WireFreeTM RTS Wind Sensor is a wireless, battery powered wind sensor that will automatically retract an awning based on wind generated movements even when you are away. Battery powered, has an indicator to alert you when the battery needs to be replaced.
Ondeis is a solar-powered combined rain and sun sensor compatible with Radio Technology Somfy® motorized exterior products, including awnings, and screens. The Sensor is completely wireless and uses optical rain-sensing technology to measure rainfall and sends an RTS command when rainfall exceeds the user-selected threshold. The Sensor also utilizes a sun- level sensor that sends an RTS command when sunlight exceeds the user-selected threshold.

With specific reference to their way to be connected to the power source, both motors can be selected as:

Standard Power Solution (hard-wired and controlled by a classical wall switch)

RTS Solution (with plug wire and controlled by a remote transmitter)

The Smoover RTS surface mounted wall switch avoids cutting into drywall. This single channel, battery-operated solution is easy to install and does not require an electrician. Available with 7 decorative color frames , users can easily complement any decor.
