Details

Horses can often display stress-related behaviours when kept isolated from other equestrians. You can alleviate these behaviours by having a mirror in their stables to minimise their stress, calming them, and reducing their anxieties of being alone.

Placing mirrored acrylic in the stables is an easy and cost-effective way to get the same clear reflection as traditional glass but is more lightweight and flexible, and can be easily fitted.

Acrylic mirrors are lightweight, durable and due to their shatter-resistant properties, reduce the risk of breakages and injuries. As well as outside of the home, you can fit mirrored acrylic in bathrooms, and for instance on door backings allowing spaces to reflect more light into the room.

To install our mirrored acrylic, you only require either an appropriate drill bit for the wall 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 and for any mirrors larger than one metre squared, the mirrored acrylic is ordered in 5mm.

Key Features

Versatile

With shatter-resistant properties, our stable mirrored Perspex® sheets have 10 times the impact resistance compared to traditional mirrors. Due to their strong durability, the stable mirrors also make a great addition outside of the home, such as a garden feature.

Inexpensive

Our mirrored acrylic offers the same clear reflection and provides better durability making it perfect for stable mirrors, as well as home gym mirrors, or dance studio mirrors at the same price of glass, making them a cheap mirror relative to their durability and longevity.

Maintainable

Keeping your acrylic stable mirrors clean and hygienic is just as easy to maintain as a glass mirror. All that is required is warm soapy water and a microfibre cloth. If your acrylic sheet does get scratched, using VuPlex plastic polish as per its instructions will buff out any scratches and restore the mirrored reflection. 

Lightweight

Stable mirror Perspex® sheets weigh half as much as an equivalent glass mirror, making installation, transportation, and handling an easier, and more attractive option. In addition to its shatter-resistant properties, it is a safer mirror to have around children and/or pet-friendly homes.

Weather Resistant

With both UV and weather resistance, our mirrored Perspex® sheets can withstand the most severe of weather conditions, making them fantastic alternatives to glass mirrors outdoors whether in the garden or as a feature in stables. As such, acrylic garden mirrors are fantastic ways to create the illusion of a larger garden.

Malleable

Our mirrored Perspex® is easy to fabricate and can be cut by us, drilled and shaped to any requirements, so it’s a flexible material to work with.

Installation

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 and for any mirrors larger than one metre squared, that the mirrored acrylic is ordered in 5mm.
