A panoramic moonroof is an open, movable panel which opens out to reveal a view of the scenery outside, allowing light and fresh air to penetrate the passenger area. Panoramic moonroofs are a relatively new innovation, which adds a stunning feature to any vehicle, adding an amazing sensation of being “at sea”. Panoramic moonroofs are generally motorized or manually operated, and come in various shapes, styles and sizes.
The panoramic moonroof is not new to production vehicles, however. This type of roof has been available for decades in limousine type cars, luxury cars, prestige sedans, and other high-end vehicles. Today, many new cars come with panoramic moonroof glass as standard or can be added at a very reasonable cost to existing vehicles.
One of the best selling reasons for installing a glass panel on the back of the vehicle is security. Most vehicles are routinely equipped with at least one, although many vehicles come with two or more sunroofs. A sunroof provides safety for the vehicle by permitting the driver to have a clear and safe vision behind the vehicle. With this type of security, a thief will most likely pass up a perfectly good looking vehicle and choose to move along. Installing a glass panel on top of the sunroof creates a double wall of protection.
There are several advantages to using a glass panel on the back of a vehicle. The foremost advantage is the security it provides. If a criminal is breaking into the back of your vehicle, they will not be able to easily get into the interior of the vehicle. With a fixed panel on the back of the sunroof, a thief cannot peer through the window to see if anything is inside. Even if they manage to get in, the interior of the vehicle will be too dark to allow them to do much damage.
A panel on the back of the sunroof will also keep out flying insects such as mosquitoes. Mosquitoes are known to carry harmful viruses and insects such as wasps are known to carry deadly venom. These two insects are commonly found in and around areas where vehicles travel through at night. If a mosquito or wasp gets into a vehicle, they can easily bite the driver or passenger and cause illness.
Other benefits of having a panoramic moonroof on your vehicle are the extra space it provides when it comes standard on vehicles. This space makes it possible to store items such as groceries, bikes, golf clubs and even camping equipment. The locking mechanisms on the sliding moonroof ensures that these items will remain safe inside the car. The power tilting mechanism allows the sunroof to tilt up and down which allows more visibility into the backseat.
Some vehicles come standard with a power sunroof, which comes in different sizes. When it comes to choosing the right size for your vehicle, you must first know the height of your head, the size of your windows and how much fresh air and sunshine you are able to enjoy during the day. Once you have taken these details into consideration, you can then work out the exact size of sunroof you will need. Most vehicles will come standard with one large sunroof that opens outward but some cars may also have smaller power sunroofs that will either lock or roll-up.
Another benefit of owning a vehicle with a panoramic roof system is that it helps to save space. This is particularly important when it comes to vans as it becomes difficult to fit standard roof boxes on vans. Pop-up sunroofs allow you to make the most of space and since they are easy to open and close, many people choose to install them on their vans. Not only do these items provide the driver with a great view, but they also help to keep wind chills at a reasonable rate.
