Traditionally specialized in the design, engineering, and production of windows and doors - a segment which still represents our core business. Over time we have distinguished ourselves through our capacity to carry out projects of any scale and genre, leading us to create our own Contract Division, dedicated to providing an all-embracing response to the requests of Architects and Designers.
Today the company is led by Sergio Capoferri and - representing the fifth generation in the company - his sons Paolo, Francesco and Luca, have maintained the tradition of keeping the company at the forefront of technological advances, merging artisan craftsmanship with technological and organizational resources on an industrial scale.
With projects on virtually every continent, Capoferri has proven their eclectic technical and dynamic nature collaborating with important international Architects such as Renzo Piano, Michele de Lucchi, David Chipperfield, Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, and Antonio Citterio & Partners, to name but a few.
120 years of constant research and updated equipment, a high degree of professionalism, and a solid artisan tradition, have transformed a small workshop into an internationally recognized leader in its field.
Dedicated to beauty as much as technical innovation, Capoferri is ready to approach new challenges, with the ambition to make the desires and the most complex requirements of Architects and Designers become reality.
Metal and wood windows
The first Italian Company to adopt glue-laminated timber for the construction of windows and window-doors, in 1976 Capoferri obtained the patent for their “multi-joint glue-laminated timber” for construction of their products. This is not an isolated highlight. The philosophy of Capoferri pushes the research to constantly explore new applications and technologies. A dedicated team introduces innovations in the field of cladding and develops new applications in bronze, brass, copper, and stainless steel - all thermally broken - handling all R&D and prototyping directly in-house. In addition to the wood workshop, a separate metal works department was created and developed to be a state of the art facility. It is here that automation and special hardware for Capoferri windows are produced; and structural metal work is carried out, pushing the limits of both dimension and application.
Capoferri has been certified UNI EN ISO 9001-2008 for the engineering, design, production, and installation of metal and wood windows as well as wood and steel structures. It has obtained the Italian SOA Certificate for “Qualified Suppliers of Public Works” as well as the conformity to UNI EN ISO 3834-2006, which attests to the quality requirements for welding of metals. The R&D department constantly introduces innovations, ranging from software to the organization of internal processes, which are continuously adapted based on the specific requirements of any given project. Products are certified by an External Testing House, the governmental body ITC-CNR (Italian National Research Council - Construction Technologies Institute).
Capoferri windows and doors
As a leader in the field of windows and doors in such diverse configurations as wood, metal, and wood-metal combinations, as well as contract windows, automated applications, and oversize solutions; it has been a natural consequence to extend the acquired technical expertise to the field of Contract work.
As the request for coherence and continuity throughout the execution of any given project continuously increased, Capoferri took up the challenge to engineer and build accessories to our windows: built-in furniture, wall cladding, unique objects and structures, as well as countless customized details for our meticulous clients.
This is the mission and the strength of our Contract Division: to expand our work method and quality standards on an ever widening scale, embracing all the needs of the customer. Whatever the requirements of the project, Capoferri will know how to bring the vision of the Architect or Designer to life in order to fully satisfy the owners’ desires.
