Ideas for our bimini enclosure

My Sunbrella 4 sided enclosure has Strataglas and a Seaview glass insert in the front. On each side I can roll up one panel of Strataglas for cooling for the few hot days the PNW has to offer. The top and all 4 sides are up 24/7 and through wind, snow, sun and rain it still looks great after 4 seasons. I clean the Stratglas each spring and fall with the Strataglas supplied protector and cleaner. Storing the clear panels can be harder on them than leaving them up. To-date,*Strataglas has no UV or sun yellowing, much better the "eisenglas" products.

If it is made right and with good non-shrink products, you should have no problem with too tight zippers - some silicone zipper spray has been needed over the years though.
