However they ran out of the race because of the fact that they are hard to clean easy to dent and cannot be rolled back to its place when not required. They require special hinges or method to scroll up and down. It is a preferable choice for those who believe in the robust material over creative one. Fiber Glass Apart from quality fabrics and tensile aluminium frames the fiber glass is a lightweight alternative as it can be moulded into any shape. They are opaque and slightly translucent in nature which allows enough sunlight to walk in.
