Step Outside with Sol-Lux Motorized Patio Awnings, Showcased at IWCE 2023

Sol-Lux makes its debut appearance at the International Window Coverings Expo, introducing Freedom and Mirage patio awnings that combine elegant design with industry-leading motorization.

Broomfield, CO. – May 10, 2023 - Sol-Lux, a subsidiary of Carefree of Colorado (the global leader in RV awnings) is expanding into the North American residential market. Sol-Lux provides dealers and designers with an opportunity to broaden their portfolio in the growing outdoor category with the introduction of their automated patio awnings.

At the recent IWCE International Window Coverings Expo in Charlotte, NC, Sol-Lux showcased their Mirage and Freedom awnings. These cassette awnings are the perfect addition to any outdoor patio as they offer an effective, elegant way to manage sunlight and heat without obstructing the view.

Sol-Lux Mirage and Freedom Awnings displayed at IWCE 2023

The Freedom awning is a fully wireless battery-powered, solar-charged awning, available in up to 15’ width with an 8’ extension. The Mirage awning is powered through AC line voltage and can be specified up to an impressive 21’ width with a 12’ extension. Both models feature fully enclosed aluminum cassettes which protect the awning canopy and components from the elements while nesting tastefully on the side of a house.

Sol-Lux's patio awnings come with industry-leading motorization powered by Somfy®. With an onboard motion sensor, the awning automatically retracts to its closed position during wind events that might otherwise compromise the awning. For local control, users can utilize Somfy’s award-winning handheld remotes or the Somfy Tahoma smart device app.

Both awning models are designed and fabricated in the USA and have average lead times of four weeks. They are offered in a variety of premium Sunbrella® and Recasens® acrylic fabric options to complement every home’s exterior aesthetics.

“Exhibiting at IWCE allowed us to connect with window covering professionals and receive valuable market feedback. By introducing the Sol-Lux Mirage and Freedom awnings, our partners can diversify their outdoor offerings with confidence in a trusted fabricator with over 50 years of awning engineering and manufacturing expertise." - Kevin Mayer, VP of Sales & Marketing at Sol-Lux.
