For generous shade: following a comprehensive revamp, the familiar Capri awning model in its new guise as Capri Due provides cleverly conceived functionality for large areas up to 1,400 cm wide.


In 2024, Lewens will present a range of new and improved products at the world’s leading trade fair for roller shutters, doors/gates and sun shading systems. The highlight of the coming season is the new, rainproof all-weather pergola Positano. New products have been added to expand the design features and options for using the Capri and Portofino awning models and the Murano series of glass roofs. A sturdy support frame enables awnings and glass roofs to be installed as free-standing units without any wall connection or in front of non-load-bearing walls. 

Rainproof: Positano Weatherproof Pergola

The new weatherproof pergola with waterproof cover provides variable rain protection for generously proportioned patio areas. The cover is not wound on a shaft, but is retracted instead segment by segment. High-precision toothed belt technology is deployed for this purpose, guaranteeing smooth extension and retraction of the fabric segments while ensuring good tensioning of each individual panel. Rainwater is drained via the surface of the fabric into a gutter at the front end of the cover and invisibly down the inside of the supporting columns. The prototype of Positano received the coveted European Product Design Award (EPDA) in 2022. 

Displaceable rails and uprights mean that the Capri Due pergola model can be adapted to smaller patio areas.

For large shaded areas: Capri Due Roof-Mounted and Pergola

The successful Capri awning model has undergone a facelift and modernisation with the roof-mounted and pergola variants. During the forthcoming season, this new model with the name Capri Due will replace its predecessor. The guide rails of the Capri Due roof-mounted awning can be displaced inwards, so that even hipped or angled glass roofs or conservatories can be shaded. On the pergola type, the rails can be recessed inwards and the supporting columns moved backwards to enable the Capri to be adapted to more limited patio areas. The uprights can also be optionally fitted with new, integral LED lighting. 

Zip awning guide: Portofino Roof-Mounted

Lewens now offers a roof-mounted variant in addition to the interior and pergola verions of the Portofino awning model. Like the other types in the series, this variant features a zip guide for extending and retracting the awning safely with respect to the wind and for eliminating light gaps at the sides. The zip guide is additionally equipped with patented balancing spring technology to ensure consistent tensioning of the awning fabric.

Flexibility to suit every requirement: Lewens‘ new universal support frame is suitable as a free-standing unit for dual-sided attachment of folding-arm awnings, pergolas and glass roofs, but can also be used single-sided.

For free-standing sunshades and glass roofs: new universal support frame

For the free-standing installation of folding-arm awnings, pergolas and glass roofs, Lewens has introduced a new universal support frame. It is suitable for dual-sided mounting but can also be used single-sided in the case of walls that are not sufficiently load-bearing, for example on prefabricated homes. Roof profiles and cross members create a rainproof transition to the attached units. The universal support frame is available in various designs. Installation widths of up to 700 cm are possible with two posts externally or laterally recessed, and of up to 1,200 cm with three posts. LED lighting strips and radiant heaters can be installed as optional extras.

The new roof-mounted variant of the Portofino awning model joins the previously introduced interior and pergola versions to complete the series.

For special designs: Murano Modulare Glass Roof

The new Murano Modulare glass roof model permits special designs with chimney cut-outs or glass roofs with acute- or obtuse-angled sides, for instance. A prototype of the new design, which is still in the development stage, will be exhibited at R+T 2024.
