Car glass


Car glass

Car windows are windows which can be raised and lowered by depressing a button (power window) or switch or using a hand-turned crank handle. The power moonroof, a transparent, retractable sunroof, may be considered as an extension of the power window concept. Some vehicles include sun blinds for rear and rear side windows. Nowadays cars use composite material instead of glass.
