Mirror Gauge

Acrylic mirror glass come primarily in two thickness's / gauges, 3mm and 6mm. Whilst both give a beautiful optical reflection it is often deemed necessary to use the thicker glass when the mirror becomes over a certain size, we recommend, should your size go over 0.8 m in any dimension then the thicker 6mm acrylic would be advisable.


6mm Glass
Large observation Windows: 7mm Laminated Glass

Special Note:
If perfect optical quality is required, use real glass, as acrylic glass does give some distortion in larger sizes.

Fixing Options

Small J shaped chrome brackets which screw onto the wall, supporting the mirror in a small channel, A Mirror 1m Square would easily be held by 4 clips. The clips are barely visible around the mirror when fitted.

Specially formulated adhesive for hanging mirrors. When used as directed by the manufacturer it can hold any size of mirror to a well prepared surface.

Mirrors with holes are supplied with the appropriate number of screws, rubber grommets and chromed screw head caps.

How to measure

(press 1 for sales) for further advice.

Overall Size
This is the total size of you framed mirror from outside edge to outside edge including the frame. This may vary with the same size piece of glass, as all frame mouldings are slightly different in size.

How A Two Way Mirror Works
On the Bright Side
Light bounces around the light room, much of the light reflects off the mirror to the viewer. Very little sneaks in from the other side because the room is dim: result most of the light from the mirrors comes from within the bright room, so that's what you see.
