Title: SLIDING ROOF FOR A VEHICLE
Abstract:
A sliding roof comprises at least a first panel and a second panel. The panel are slidably provided on one or two roof rails. At one end of the rail, a cassette is provided. The cassette comprises pairs of substantially parallel cassette rails located above one another. The cassette is movable to ahgn each pair of cassette rails with the roof rails for receiving the rails. The roof panels are slid into the cassette and accommodated by the cassette rails, above one another. The cassette may be lowered to fit, for example, under a front deck of a ship. The panels are connected and, during sliding, forced at a distance from one another to slide over a curved track without colliding. While connected, only one of the panels is connected to a push/pull cable that is driven by a pinion or similar circular device.
