Pilkington Mirropane™ is an on-line coated glass developed for use as a one-way mirror where clear vision is required and specific lighting conditions can be achieved. It offers an effective means of providing undetected surveillance and high quality one-way vision to achieve complete privacy. In order to maintain privacy in the observing area, the ratio of illumination levels between public and private side, or observed and observing side, must be at least 8:1.
It is also advisable, if absolute privacy is essential, to have dark furnishings, to wear dark clothing in the area from which observation is taken place, and to ensure the lights on the observed side are not directed at the glass.
Pilkington Mirropane™ is the ideal choice for supermarkets, computer rooms, banks or cash offices, where areas need to be kept under observation or hidden from public scrutiny. It is also appropriate for patient monitoring in hospitals or residential care establishments. Pilkington Mirropane™ is available in 6 mm annealed form. Pilkington Mirropane™ is normally only used for internal applications.
The glass must be installed with the coating on the subject’s (observed person) side. In such position the glass creates a visual barrier between subjects and their observers, performing like an ordinary mirror on one side and a tinted window on the other. If you would like to use Pilkington Mirropane™ in external applications, please contact your local Pilkington representative.
