Acrylic mirror sheets are suitable for a wide range of applications due to their excellent impact resistance and light weight.
- Impact and shatter resistant
- Excellent reflective properties
- Lightweight sheets that are easy to work with
- Less than half the weight of glass mirror
- Approximately 17 x higher impact strength than glass
- Easy to clean
- UV stable – will not discolour
- Strong and durable
- Supplied with protective film on one side
Because of its impact and shatter resistance acrylic mirrors are very popular for use in environments where safety is paramount such as nurseries and horse stables.
Acrylic Mirror has good reflective properties; however acrylic is not as rigid as glass and is therefore prone to minor distortions on larger panels which will optically distort the image. We recommend that the mirror is bonded to a flat rigid back panel such as Plywood or MDF to minimise this effect.
Acrylic mirror will tend to absorb moisture if exposed to high humidity or damp environments, this will cause a temporary warpage of the material which still distort the reflection. For damp or outdoor applications, we recommend Aluminium Composite Mirror Panel as they will not absorb moisture.
For large sheet sizes we would recommend polycarbonate mirror as it is much more rigid in larger sizes which reduces optical distortions. In addition, the reflective quality is better than that of standard acrylic.
Outdoor use: Acrylic mirrors are not suitable for outdoor use. If you’re looking for a mirrored material suitable for outdoor use, please consider our premium aluminium composite mirror as it offers a much better quality of reflection and can withstand external weather conditions.
Reflection distortions: Please note that this material is not a substitute for traditional glass mirrors if you require a perfect reflection, it is prone to distortions which may make it unsuitable for your requirements. We also stock a high performance aluminium composite mirror which offers many of the same benefits as this material, e.g. light weight, shatterproof, easy to work with, but also has much better reflective qualities.
