Contemporary Elegance

Product Description

With Antigua, Alutex offers the extra modern design of a lateral arm system able to respond to the most sophisticated and demanding markets today.

Antigua is considered to be the third generation of lateral arms. From the classical systems to the partial “cassette” solutions where only the fabric is fully protected, Antigua answers Alutex’s most contemporary demand for a complete cassette containing the whole system when fully retracted.

Produced with fully powder-coated glossy white components, Antigua offers projections up to 12’ and a maximum width of 2 ’ with its slick cassette.

Controlled manually or by a motorized solution, Antigua offers more than 300 acrylic fabrics available on the market today.

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 the cables in its arms are- protected by UVresistant coating to increase their endurance.


Antigua’s slick design has been perceived to enhance the value of any home. With the wide variety of colors offered today by hundreds of vivid fabrics, Antigua has a look for you.


Antigua’s box’s modern and essential look is meant to offer a contemporary response to today’s sophisticated market expectations. By blending with the modern yet elegant design of many of today’s graceful outdoor settings, it is easy to appreciate the ambiance of Antigua’s generous size and uncommon strength.

Alutex selects only the finest fabric on the market. Please visit the following links and follow the instructions referring to their awning fabric collection:

Roof Bracket

Roof installation is recommended where insufficient clearance or swing opening doors, drain or gatters happen to be in the way of regular wall installation. One roof bracket for each regular bracket is required.

Each roof bracket is designed to provide an adjustable hinge system able to replicate a virtual wall position along the roof. All Alutex’s roof brackets are offered in the same color of the selected awning frame.

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.

The myLink app by Somfy puts you in control, so that you can operate your motorized solutions whether you are home or not. At work and realized you forgot to close your shades for the day? Not a problem. With a simple tap of myLink app you can close all your shades.
