Mirrors and paneled mirrored walls can give a dramatic aesthetic feature to many residential and business spaces. They can enhance dimension, appear larger, brilliantly reflect light, or bring in the outside world.
Mirrors have the ability to unify a room or even take on a life of their own. The only restriction is that the mirror must mix in nicely with the surrounding area.
Here are some of the most often asked questions we get about mirrors and paneled mirrored walls in light of that.
How Much Do Paneled Mirror Walls Cost?
Cost considerations for mirrored walls depend on a number of aspects, just like they do for any décor element. The size of the final mirror wall, the thickness of the mirror, any cutouts or beveling, and any hues like black, bronze, clear, or grey will all affect the price of the mirror.
The mirror would need to be shipped and handled safely to the job site, and labor would be required to prepare or reinforce the wall and install the mirror.
An average estimate of retail prices for installed conventional 14-inch wall mirrors ranges from $9 to $20, or more.
The framing, tiling, or accent lighting utilized to draw attention to the wall are not included in this estimate.
Can I Have Cutouts in My Paneled Mirror Wall?
What a great world it would be if every surface was flat and even. Unfortunately, most walls simply aren’t constructed that way. The use of a cutout is required since there are frequently fixtures, outlets, or switches on the wall where the mirror or mirrors are hung.
Applications that frequently use cutouts include:
- Commercial and residential bathrooms
- Home gyms
- Commercial art or dance studios
- Commercial gyms
In this situation, you should give the mirror maker precise measurements so that they can enlarge the cutout during the manufacturing process.
We can create custom mirror cutouts at New Angle Beveling for anything from medicine cabinets to receptacle holes to ballet barres and more. The cuts have a satin finish and any inside corners have a 3/8- to 1-inch radius.
Due to the possibility of breaking, cutouts never reach a square point.
Applications for Commercial Mirrors?
Although dance studios, gyms, nightclubs, and upscale restaurants frequently have mirror-covered walls, mirrors have just as many uses outside of the house.
The restrooms are the most practical, but they can also be utilized to add drama to an entrance or foyer or to create the illusion of depth in a smaller conference room.
Offices, waiting rooms, beauty parlors, changing rooms, and many other places also use commercial mirrors.
How to Clean a Commercial Mirror?
It’s essential to clean your commercial mirror with a non-ammoniated product. Clean the glass surface by spritzing the cleaner onto a cloth.
Many owners of commercial mirrors erroneously spray an ammoniated cleaning directly onto the glass surface. The glass of the mirror won’t be affected, but there will be other negative effects.
The cleaner’s moisture may drip off onto the edge of the mirror and have a wicking effect. It will remain there or even try to harm the mirror’s safety backing by attacking the rear.
What Happens If My Commercial Mirror Breaks?
Commercial mirrors are susceptible to spontaneous breaking, stress cracks, edge damage, and unexpected impact. Safety should always come first in situations involving broken mirrors. Before determining the amount of the damage, keep people away from the area and properly tidy up all the broken objects.
Depending on the kind and extent of the damage, a broken mirror can be repairable. If the issue is with a single panel of a mirror wall, replacing just that panel might be possible. It is typically better to have the mirror replaced if the damage is too extensive or if it presents a safety risk to patrons or staff.
To find out the proper replacement procedures, get in touch with the manufacturer directly.
Make sure there is a safety backing installed on the back of the mirror when installing a business mirror in areas with high usage, including gyms and studios.
Due of this backing, the mirror won’t accidentally or accidentally fall off the wall if any of the glass cracks.
Before installing your mirrored wall or huge industrial mirror, always inquire with the manufacturer and installer regarding safety backing goods.
How to Remove a Commercial Mirror?
This might be affected by the mirror’s size and mounting technique. A smaller mirror that was simply clipped to the wall should be easy to remove, but a larger mirror that was glued to the wall will take a little more work to remove.
Never try to smash the mirror because doing so could seriously jeopardize your safety. Additionally, attempting to remove a mirror from a wall might seriously harm the supporting framework. In rare circumstances, you might be able to detach the mirror from the wall by running a length of picture wire behind it. A heat gun might be useful in removing the glue if the mirror can be securely removed, but substantial patching and repair work on the drywall may be necessary.
It is typically recommended to get in touch with a professional installation when installing a sizable commercial mirror.
How Can I Ensure My Mirror Lasts?
Commercial mirrors are built to last and be of high quality. Strict attention must be paid to the glass’s purity, precision, flatness, thickness, and the caliber of the reflective substance used for the coating in order to achieve this.
Ask your maker to seal the side of the mirror if you plan to install it in a bathroom or other area with a lot of moisture. This keeps the mirror looking great for longer by preventing the silver from corroding and fading over time.
