What is a first surface mirror?

A first surface mirror, also known as front surface mirror, has an optical grade mirror coating on the face of the glass that maximizes reflection and minimizes distortion. First surface mirrors are ideal for applications requiring a flawless reflection without a double image (ghosting) as seen with a regular mirror (second surface mirror).

Frequently Asked Questions

The glass is optical grade, so we recommend that over the acrylic for most applications. The 1/4″ glass is our best value–the added thickness of the glass provides a much better flatness than thinner glass. Our standard 1/4″ thickness is extremely fine quality, but for applications requiring a magnification of over 15x, the quarter wave first surface mirror is noticeably better.

The largest is 32″x50″ which is available in 1/4″ glass

We are experts at packaging glass so that it doesn’t break. In the unlikely event it should break, the glass is fully insured–just send us photos of the box and broken mirror and we will send replacements.

Shipping internationally is our specialty. Duties and taxes are billed separately on delivery.

50% isopropyl alcohol (lens cleaner) and KimWipes are the best, to avoid streaks and scratches.
