Our Silver Mirrored Acrylic Sheets come in both 3mm and 5mm thicknesses. They are perfect to use as gym mirrors, or in your home gym as well as as an equestrian stable mirror. They are also commonly used in bathrooms and on door backings to allow spaces to reflect more light into the room.

All of Perspex® Mirrored Acrylic comes with the industry's toughest and most durable backing to protect your mirror.

All of our Mirrored Acrylics are versatile and weather resistant, so they make for a great addition outside of the home too as an acrylic garden mirror.

Installation

For installation, we suggest using a hard board and an adhesive designed to be used with mirrors, the adhesive must be non-solvent and applied evenly to the surface with a roller. See our mirror fitting guide to learn more. Some distortion may still occur due to the nature of acrylic mirrors, the distortion of the acrylic mirror is a characteristic of this product and is not a manufacturing issue.

Using an adhesive on the acrylic mirror sheet and using an MDF backing is the most common choice for both ease and simplicity, providing a professional, smooth finish and most importantly, a secure fit.

Please note that the larger the mirror the higher the chance of a distorted image being reflected, to avoid this we recommend fixing to an 18mm MDF backing and ensuring the mirror is installed fully flush to the MDF or a completely smooth wall. We strongly advise that you use a trained professional to install your mirrors in order to maintain high-quality reflection.

Acrylic mirrors are more flexible than traditional glass mirrors and need to be perfectly flat to prevent distortion. We recommend using a 5mm thickness for mirrors over 1000mm in length or width to minimize distortion. For installation, we suggest using a hard board such as MDF and an adhesive designed to be used with mirrors, the adhesive must be non-solvent and applied evenly to the surface with a roller. See our mirror fitting guide to learn more.

Some distortion may still occur due to the nature of acrylic mirrors, the distortion of the acrylic mirror is a characteristic of this product and is not a manufacturing issue.

Please note you are purchasing mirrored acrylic, there is no frame or mount included.

To install our mirrored acrylic, you only require either an appropriate drill bit or adhesive glue. While we do strongly advise that you use a professional to install your mirrors, we have also provided a DIY guide for how to install your mirror. We do also recommend that if you are intending on getting the mirror to look flat, it is backed on an engineered flat, and strong surface, such as our 18mm MDF.

100% recyclable logo

100% Recyclable

Perspex® Acrylic is 100% recyclable. Waste products can readily be recovered from the original raw material (the monomer) and re-used in a new sheet.

Perspex® has been manufactured in the UK for over 85 years and still takes place on the same site in Lancashire as it did in the 1930s. This short supply distance to our UK customers helps reduce ‘product miles’ from the manufacturing plant to the end user.

Numerous different investments have already been made by Perspex® to lessen the impact on the environment. Annual waste consumption has been reduced by 24 million litres, and almost 800 tonnes of carbon dioxide have been saved every year as part of a hot water recycling project. At Cut My, we work to be more sustainable by using all of our offcuts to heat our manufacturing facility. We are also currently working towards reducing our packaging.
