Mirror Glass


Traditional mirrors use silver to create mirrored glass that is protected by copper. Modern techniques have more stringent quality controls that require copper-free designs in order to avoid corrosion. Any glass thickness or tint can be mirrored but it is most common in clear 3mm, 4mm, 5mm and 6mm. Safety “vinyl back” mirrors are also available for extra safety applications, and heated pads can be fitted. Safety mirrors will usually show some distortion in the reflected images due to the manufacturing process.

Typical products are:

  • Clear silver mirror
  • Tinted mirror
  • Antique mirror
  • Safety back mirror
  • Heated mirror (mist free)
  • Venetian mirror (stripes)
  • Mirror tiles (plain or bevelled)
  • One-way mirror (see applicable section as this is not mirror glass)
