How Illuminated Mirrors Function
The magic of an illuminated mirror lies in the precise sandblasting technique applied to the back of the glass, which allows the light to filter through the frosted areas, providing a clear and easy-to-clean surface.
Mirror Magnification Explained
Flat vs. Concave: While all mirrors listed here are crafted from flat glass, we also offer magnified options. To achieve magnification, glass is shaped concave, offering a closer view, ideal for precision tasks like makeup application.
Choosing the Right Lamp
Colour Rendering vs. Lamp Life: Your choice of lamp for an illuminated mirror depends on whether colour accuracy or energy efficiency takes precedence. Tungsten halogen lamps offer excellent colour rendering, while LED and fluorescent lamps boast energy efficiency and longevity.
Tungsten Halogen Lamps
Experience colours in their truest form with halogen lamps, which simulate sunlight across the spectrum. The warm tones enhance skin's natural colours, and the heat helps keep the mirror free of condensation.
LED & Fluorescent Lamps
Modern lamps, paired with electronic ballasts, avoid the flicker and noise of older versions. With a lifespan of up to 50,000 hours, they combine quality lighting with energy savings, with only a minimal drop-off in light quality.
Functional Noise: While the electronic components for lighting operate silently, the shaver sockets may emit a buzz due to the safety isolator. If the sound is bothersome, an electrician can adjust the wiring so that the socket is only active when the lights are on, maintaining safety standards without the hum.
