  • Patent number: 10710435
    Abstract: A shading device for a pane or a glass roof region of a vehicle interior with a flexible shading structure mounted for, movement between a rest position in which it is stowed in a receiving region in a compact manner, and a shading position, in which it spans the pane or the glass roof region, and which is provided with a dimensionally stable pull-out profile. The pull-out profile extends substantially over an entire width of the shading structure and is positioned in a passage slot of the receiving region in the rest position of the shading structure. Resilient damping elements are arranged on opposite longitudinal walls of the passage slot, which damping elements flank the pull-out profile in the rest position of the shading structure and support the pull-out profile at a distance from the longitudinal walls.
