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.
