Frequently Asked Questions

What is best for cleaning mirrors?

For best results clean mirrors with methylated spirits and water at a rate of 30% methylated spirits and 70% water. Do not use Windex or similar chemical cleaning products. Avoid getting water on the sides or back of the mirror as damage to silver backing can occur. In coastal areas it is recommended to wipe around the edge of the mirror once a month to avoid salt build up that can cause silver creep.

Can I use a back-lit mirror as the only light in my room?

This depends on the size of the mirror and the size of the bathroom. In most situations, normal overhead lighting should be available in addition to the back-lit mirror.

How is the mirror controlled / operated?

The Contractor back-lit mirrors and the Ablaze magnifying mirrors have a switch on the unit. The premium range of back-lit mirrors do not include a switch on the unit. They are designed to be hard wired into a simple switch, a programmable timer or motion sensor.

What is the difference between Cool and Warm light?

Warm lights emit more of a yellowish colour that produces a warm and welcoming atmosphere designed to mimic natural sunlight. Cool lights emit a brighter, white artificial light for a cleaner feel and makes the mirror more functional.

What does it cost to run my Back-lit mirror?

The LEDs on the back-lit range consume minimal energy and running costs are almost negligible. For example, an average sized mirror (i.e. S900C) will cost only one cent per hour to run. (Based on a 0.3 kw/h energy tariff).

How do I select the correct Thermomirror size?

When selecting a demister, you need to ensure that it is smaller than the size of your mirror. In a glue-to-wall application it is important there is a minimum of 100mm all around the demister to allow for adhesion between the mirror and the wall. In a screw-to-wall application, the demister needs to be small enough to ensure that it is out of the way of the screws or mounting brackets. Remember the demister only needs to be where you mainly look and the heat will spread slightly.

How do I operate my demister?

The demister can be connected to the lighting circuit in your bathroom, so it operates when your lights are on. Alternatively, it can be connected to a movement sensor located in the bathroom which can also be connected to your lights.

Do you do custom size mirrors?

The signature range can be custom sized, all other mirrors are only available in the sizes indicated. We are able to manufacture custom sized mirrors for projects, but minimum quantities apply. Lead times do apply to all custom sized mirror or

Can I install a demister on a cabinet door?

We do not recommend the installation of a demister on a cabinet door due to difficulty with wiring and issues of effectiveness in this application. Typically, demisters would be installed on a wall and hardwired through that wall to the power supply, however if it was installed on a cabinet door, it would be difficult to wire up the demister in this way or get power to the point where it is needed, as the cables will need to have slack and will be exposed. If the demister was on the back of the cabinet door and the mirror on the front, this would not be very effective as the demister would struggle to heat through the thickness of the cabinet door and demist the mirror.
