Stainless Steel Traffic Convex Mirrors

Outdoor Stainless Steel Traffic Safety Mirrors are robust and virtually unbreakable. The mirror face is made from highly polished, mirror quality, 18 gauge stainless steel and can resist damage from projectile objects such as rocks or vandalism. These outdoor convex mirrors can be installed where ever a driver's field of vision is blocked, such as driveways, blind corners on roads and highways and at hard to see intersections. The extra strong galvanised steel bracket is designed to mount to a 75mm pole. Ideal in vandal prone areas where graffiti can be easily removed. (pole not included). Attach these outdoor traffic mirrors to a flat surface with the optional Wall Mount Adaptor, available for purchase.

DuraVision™ Features

What size mirror should I use? (Traffic Series)

For outdoor applications the mirror needs to be larger than for indoor applications but as a general rule the combined distance between the mirror and the observer and the distant between the mirror and the object to be viewed will determine the correct size mirror. Always choose a slightly larger rather than smaller mirror. If the mirror is too small then the image it produces will be of little value but if the mirror is slightly larger than required, you only get more and an enhanced view!

  • Combined distance up to 38 metres Use 600mm mirror
  • Combined distance up to 50 metres Use 800mm mirror
  • Combined distance over 50 metres Use 1000m mirror

For roads where the mirror is on the same side as the observer, use 600mm size or if the opposite side an 800mm or 1000mm is recommended. Lane ways and driveways are typically 600mm.

Should I use Stainless Steel or Acrylic?

This comes down to a number of factors. Both types will give similar visual results, so it depends on the environment the mirror will be placed in. The stainless steel mirrors are the most expensive but are also unbreakable and will withstand physical attack best. They are also excellent for harsh industrial environments. The acrylic version has the same frame but the mirror will not withstand physical abuse. If the mirror is to be placed in a low risk area (e.g. private property, safe area) then choose the acrylic version. Consider though that if the mirror is broken, the replacement costs (plus the original cost) will outweigh any saving over the cost of the stainless steel version!
