The Power of Beauty

Product Description

Cape Cod has been designed to satisfy the most sophisticated awning demand for classical lateral arm features and advanced technology combined. Its result is a compact cassette protecting its fabric when retracted and a slick, glossy, and elegant frame extending a few inches from the wall without winter storage.

Available in three standard classy color finishes, white, cream, and brown, or in any color on demand, Cape Cod dresses perfectly with the selection of any colorful fabric and offers an elegant, discrete design to enhance the beauty of any house.

Ideal to protect its fabric when retracted, Cape Cod seals within its glossy and elegant shell, leaving an attractive, sleek frame a few inches from the wall.

When fully open, Cape Cod extends its shade to any outdoor area on command and protects you and your family from the direct effects of UV sun rays.

Cape Cod can be identified among those retractable awnings generally labeled as “cassette awnings.” Its primary function is to offer extra protection to its fabric when completely retracted and provide extra winter storage during the off-season.

To avoid discontinuity in its frame, Cape Cod’s box element is created like a shell by sealing two halves to each other, a top and a bottom, up to a maximum continuous length of 23’, while its 13’ maximum arm projection is today the largest available on the market in its retractable awning category.

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.


Cape Cod’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.


The modern and essential look of Cape Cod’s box 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 created by Cape Cod’s generous size and uncommon strength.


Built only with the finest materials and finished with electrostatic powder coating epoxy paint, Cape Cod assures the most durable yet elegant awning product by resisting chipping, cracking, and fading. Like all Alutex awnings, Cape Cod is covered by a ten-year warranty.

Product Highlights

Cape Cod’s elegant design blends with any siding enhancing the outdoor space of your house.

Cape Cod is supplied with stainless steel hardware to guaranty the best performance of its parts even under the most stringent weather conditions.
The high quality electrostatic coating of all its parts are among the features that make Cape Cod an excellent shading system for any outdoor leaving space.
Cape Cod’s “cassette” design offers an encased solution to protect its fully retracted fabric and provides the perfect self-storage opportunity during off-season.
Like all the other Alutex lateral arm systems, Cape Cod offers the same versatility either for siding, soffit or roof installation.
With the use of extra heavy-duty arms, Cape Cod is today the cassette awning with the largest projection in its class able to reach out up to 14’.

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

Front Valance

Low Scallops
High Scallops
Russian Key

Adjustable Valance

Alutex’s “Drop-down valance” is a front valance system designed to offer adjustable front sun protection on demand with virtually any Alutex retractable lateral arm awning.

This secondary valance is positioned behind the regular valance inside a unique front cassette designed to replace the regular aw- ning front bar. It can be rolled up or down by simply operating a small gear installed at one end of the cassette.

Alutex’s “Drop-down Valance” comes in 4’ height and a maximum 24’ width. It can be made with the same fabric as the awning for color coordination or with a black, cream, gray, or brown sunscreen mesh.

Rain and Wind Stabilizers Legs Kit

With this exclusive front-leg system, Alutex offers an outstanding response to wind and rain loads on virtually all its lateral arm models (not available with Nova).

Hardware-free, these stabilizers are designed with both ends reversible for error-proof installation.
Their top and bottom joints are designed to give in toward the closing direction of the awning, preserving flexibility while neutralizing wind and rain loads.

Warning: Legs must be removed before closing awnings.

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.
