  First Surface/ Front Surface /Front Reflecting Mirror

Used for photography, audio-visual projection and reflex binocular mounts, because the reflection comes from the front face there are no 'ghost' double images as would be caused by a normal 'looking glass' mirror.
Please note that most orders for mirrors and autocue glasses are cut and made to customers requirements. The sizes listed below are to give an idea of the costs involved. Postage to customers outside the UK will make the costs higher.  It may be possible to supply directly from stock, but not in all instances. If you need an item by a specific date, you must make us aware of the situation when ordering.
If there is to be a delay of more than a few days in sending out your order, we would call you and only take payment when the goods were ready to send.

For professional photographers and audio visual companies. Front surface mirrors are available up to about 915 x 760 mm, or 860 x 815 mm ( 36 inches x 30 inches, or 34 inches x 32 inches). Thickness for safety is usually 4 mm or 6 mm (thinner or thicker glass available). For this largest mirror the cost would be GBP 280 plus VAT.

TWO WAY MIRRORS can be made up to sizes of about 24 inches x 30 inches (600 x 800 mm). The density of the coating can be varied. There can be a strong reflection to pass less than ten percent of light, or a light reflection to pass sixty or seventy percent of light. All variations between these figures are possible. Prices are as for the F. S. Mirrors PLUS 40% (on average), to reflect the specialised coating requirements. These have to be made to order. We keep small samples in stock.

Two way mirrors are normally used at a near direct, ninety degree viewing angle, as with a normal looking glass and are usually intended to lool like a normal mirror. They should not be confused with the Peppers Ghost (Holographic Effect) beam-splitter glass, which is used at an angle of near forty five degrees and looks quite transparent.
