Acrylic safety mirrors, are intended primarily for applications such as interior fittings for decoration, point-of-sale or visual merchandising, where a “mirror effect” is required, but the quality of reflection is not overly important. Acrylic mirrors are light-weight and shatter resistant, which is ideal for this type of application. However, due to their inherent flexibility, they do tend to give a distorted reflection if they are too large.
We do not recommend acrylic mirrors for use in high dependency or security environments, although they are shatter resistant and are many times stronger than glass, they are not deemed suitable for these applications, please see our poly-carbonate mirror product details below.
