Wide-Open Panoramic Roof

This wide-open panoramic roof (WOPR) module features industry's first multi-shot, multi-function, injection-molded bracket without additional retention clips or U-channel welding / hemming.  The substrate PC panels meets world-class levels of flushness to the moveable and fixed portions of the WOPR assembly.  The very-complex design allows direct load to the vehicle sheet metal for optimum security, provides robust impact resistance, protecting the WOPR from direct scratching to the frame, improves NVH, optimizes airflow over the glass, and closes out all joints on the WOPR assembly. It also eases installation, reduces weight 60% vs. sheet metal and reinforcements, and brought a direct cost save of $925,000 USD and an indirect cost save of $425,000 USD annually.
