Elegance and strength

Product Description

Solaria is a simple and essential retractable waterproof shading system designed to provide a cover solution to existing wood pergolas and new patio projects.

Solaria’s structural components are aluminum powder coated in a classic white or in any custom color on request to blend with any aesthetic ambiance.

Solaria is designed to maintain its fabric constantly tightened in any intermediate open position selected, thanks to its hydraulic pistons discretely inserted within its rails. Due to the high tension exerted on the fabric, Solaria is offered only motorized.

When fully extended, an automatic locking device locks the fabric in place, and an even more substantial stretching effect is generated by attempting to roll the fabric back, resulting in a more effortless flow of any possible rain.

Product Features


Solaria is part of the patio system collection designed by Alutex and represents a perfect waterproof shading solution for decks and patios, either with or without pre-existing pergolas.


Its design is simple, and its installation is essential. The use of a back structural bar allows the positioning of classical awning brackets along its width that can be secured according to the house’s structural elements.


Its fabric rolls in and out from the top while is kept constantly in tension by the loaded pistons within its rails. When locked in the front, the further tension generated by the recalling motor guarantee.


To avoid discontinuity in its frame, Solaria’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.
