Mirror Strength Guide 


Safety Backed Glass Mirrors 

Dome Head Mirror Screws

Our glass mirrors are supplied with a polypropylene backing tested to BS6206 Class B & C (BS EN 12600 2B2) and mechanical fixings. All our glass mirrors are manufactured with polished edges (2mm bevel) as standard.

The safety backing helps to hold the shards together in the event of a breakage, reducing the risk of injury. Safety glass mirrors are often used in low risk environments. 

For specific applications, we can also supply toughened glass mirrors that comply to BS6206 Class A. Please contact us for more information.  

Safety backed glass mirrors must be mechanically fixed. Our standard fixing method is screw holes ad dome head screws. We can also supply safety backed glass mirrors with verity clips or J channels.
