The two-way mirror is so called because it lets around half of the light through and reflects half of the light. It is sometimes called ‘half-silvered’ mirror because it admits the light through both sides of the mirror, rather than simply being mirrored on one side and not on the other, which is the common misconception.
- Reflects and lets light through in equal measures
- One side can be seen through, the other cannot
- Lightweight and durable material
- Scratch resistant and shatterproof
- Easy to clean and maintain
- Also known as one way mirror
- Supplied with protective film on both sides
You can see through the mirror when the side you are viewing from is darker, so very little light is reflected back into the dark side allowing more light from the other side to pass through. This makes it a terrific tool for security and surveillance, although the uses for two-way mirrors extend beyond police interview rooms.
It is suitable for all kinds of surveillance, which is why you will see two-way mirror in post offices, banks, supermarkets, assessment rooms for health and education, and even in zoos or animal parks to allow visitors to view the animals without startling them. Recording equipment will work through two-way mirror, further broadening its use as an effective observation tool in a range of environments.
