Retractable glass roof debuts

New York-based Taylor Made Systems has introduced a new range of glass sunroof systems.

Sliding glass sunroofs provide a watertight skylight when closed and a fresh-air experience when open. The sleek glass panel presents a clean, seamless appearance with minimal visible framework. The electric control uses 12- or 24-volt power, and there is an emergency release mechanism for manual operation in case of a loss of power.

“Starting in 2014, our engineering team went back to the drawing board,” said Mike Oathout, vice president of sales and marketing. “They completely revised our large track system, which is most suitable for larger yachts, with refreshed styling and advanced operation, as well as upgraded construction.

“For the 2015 model year, we’re expanding the line with a smaller, lighter track system that’s perfect for use in cruisers and small-to-medium yachts,” he said. “Simply put, everything is better in these two new systems.”

One feature is a manual pop-up vent that opens a smaller vent for limited airflow without needing to open the entire roof.
