Acrylic sheet is championed as a very strong material which is resistant to impacts. Ideal for use where glass may crack or shatter, acrylic is a resilient alternative to traditional mirrors. For this reason, mirrored acrylic can be used to replace glass as mirrors in schools, stables, prisons, the home, and anywhere where safety is of the utmost importance.
In addition to being flexible and shatter resistant, acrylic is remarkably lightweight. Around half the weight of glass, acrylic is far cheaper to deliver than glass and far easier to install. An entire sheet can be mounted with screws or a suitable adhesive with the greatest of ease, though it should be noted that acrylic mirror should be mounted on a flat surface to prevent unwanted warping.
