In applications like closet and wardrobe doors, safety mirror is now the material of choice. The additional mechanical stress caused by the opening and closing of sliding or swinging doors demands a higher degree of shatter and fall resistance than what is commonly found in bathroom mirrors.
Did You Know?
Safety mirror, or safety backed mirror, uses safety backing in the form of an adhesive film with a smooth or woven texture. This adhesive film holds the mirror glass within the frame in the event of a crack or shatter, helping to prevent injuries from falling glass shards. Safety mirror is typically mounted on surfaces like wood and drywall, and is commonly found on doors and dividers.
