What are they?
Most simply, they are a polyester film that is stretched over a raised aluminium frame with a lightweight polyurethane backing.
Mirrorlite® Mylar Glassless Mirrors are a technological breakthrough. They offer unparalleled safety and ease of installation. Because they are not made with glass they offer several benefits over traditional glass mirrors, such as being super lightweight, completely shatterproof and have the ability to be installed just about anywhere.
Mirrorlite® mirrors expand reflection beyond the practical limitations of conventional glass mirrors. The unique construction process provides optical clarity, ghostless images and distortion-free colour previously found only in more expensive front surface glass mirrors. Lightweight and portable, they require no complex mounting system and can be framed as a rollaway rehearsal mirror.
Will they work for me?
Mirrorlite® mirrors are a perfect replacement for heavy, traditional glass mirrors in environments such as dance studios, gyms, physical therapy centres, schools, theatres, building lobbies, or anywhere else that you would need a high quality, lightweight, unbreakable reflective surface.
As the mirror film has so little mass and the air space behind the film is ventilated through the core, a Mirrorlite® Mirror is virtually free from condensation and fog in areas such as a bathroom, swimming pools and ideal for hot yoga studios.
"Mylar mirrors are the safest mirrors available. The Mylar is made of a thin, super reflective film, stretched over a sturdy aluminium frame."
How do I install them?
A Mirrorlite® Glassless Mirror may be applied to any flat surface with little or no preparation. Because of its lightweight, wall inserts and supports are eliminated. The mirror can be mounted directly to finished plaster, wood panelling and interior partitioning.
