Splashbacks of Distinction pride themselves in manufacturing, supplying and fitting thousands of specialist glass products in the homes of our valued customers. From a glass kitchen splashback to a beautiful bespoke glass mirror, but what sets a mirror apart from any other sheet of glass?
The vast majority of mirrors tend to have a flat surface. They are used in the home, in offices and shops. Shops in particular make good use of mirrors to enhance their goods on display. The smooth glass in these mirrors reflects light from an object back to the object at the same angle without disturbing the image. This process is called specular reflection. An image seen in an ordinary mirror is the same size as the original object.
Domestic mirrors are manufactured commercially using the silvering method. In this process, the back side of a sheet of float glass is coated with aluminum or silver. This metal coating creates the reflection. It also prevents damage to the opposite plate glass side of the mirror. In industrial manufacturing, aluminum or another metal is heated to boiling point and a glass sheet is then placed into the chamber, where atoms from the metal cool and attach to it. Most mirrors are back silvered, containing silver that will be visible through the glass. A front silvered mirror has a reflecting service on top facing the image.
Very old and and antique mirrors were often made out of bronze or tin that had been polished until the surfaces reflected light. The reflections we see in modern mirror glass is caused not by the glass itself, but by the silvering process that was used to produce this effect. Bathroom mirrors and decorative silkscreen printed mirrors are produced using variations on this silvering method. The glass used to make some windows is treated for safety reasons to lessen breakage or for decorative reasons, such as stained or coloured glass.
