Looking to add more light to your drive? We offer a wide range of sunroofs, from pop-up to full-power sliders, designed to create a fantastic new look for your vehicle.
Pop-up sunroofs are simply a manually operated tilting panel. These panels are usually removable, and like T-roofs, must be stored when removed. The tilting action provides a vent in the roof, or a full opening when the panel is removed. Pop-ups can be installed in most vehicles, and are relatively inexpensive. Familiar examples include metal panels in Porsche 944, early Mazda RX-7 and many glass panel factory and aftermarket installations.
Spoiler sunroofs (tilt-&-slides) combine the features of a pop-up with those of a sliding roof system. They tilt to vent and slide open above the roof, requiring little headroom or roof length. Spoilers typically do not provide as large an opening as other roof system’s, but offer the convenience of a self-storing panel. Most spoiler roofs are electric, with optional features like integrated sun shades and express-open/close. Spoilers are ideal for short-roof vehicles where other types of sliders can’t be installed.
Inbuilt sunroof systems have a panel which slides between the metal roof and interior headliner, requiring some loss of headroom but providing a full opening in the roof. All inbuilt slide inside the roof, while some also include a rear venting feature (see pop-up), and/or express open/close functions. Inbuilt don’t fit every vehicle, as the panel must slide and store completely within the vehicle roof. Historically, inbuilt were a metal sunroof panel painted to match the vehicle roof, but now most are glass-panel systems with sliding sunshades (typically referred to as moonroofs).
