Dome Security Mirror Information
“Saving money” is a cliche most small business owners are tired of hearing. I mean, what sales rep doesn’t use that to get their foot in the door, then to find it the cost savings really isn’t there. The problem with most of these sales pitches is the underlying product simply doesn’t save the business owner money. More often that not there’s a small business case made around the product but frankly speaking, you never really needed the product in the first place.
If you are a business owner, there are usually two issues that might keep you awake at night and those are employee safety and loss prevention. Theft is a no brain-er right? Someone steals from you, you have lost money. This is obvious from the plethora of theft prevention products available in the market place today. Safety, the same thing. The thing about employee safety is that losses suffered by business owners can devastate a business. Workers comp insurance is super expensive. If you have a serious accident at your business and you did not provide basic precautions to prevent that accident, the financial ramifications can make theft look like a blip on the radar.
So when we talk about products that can save your money, we mean it. A convex mirror or dome mirror are true cost effective ways to not only deter theft, loss prevention, but also go a long way to help avoid accidents at your workplace.
The picture to the left is a dome mirror, specifically a half dome mirror. Mounted at the intersection of the wall and ceiling, these mirrors provide a wide angle view of an area. From a safety perspective, it is easy to imagine how useful this would be where hallways intersect. For years I worked in a restaurant and I cannot tell you how many accidents in the kitchen could have been avoided with this simple safety mirror. On a larger scale, this mirror would be a perfect tool to help prevent injuries in a warehouse that uses heavy equipment like a forklift, pallet jack, or other heavy machines.
For loss prevention, think of a store clerk having a larger view of the store by using a half dome mirror like the one pictured above. Now, hidden angles are no longer hidden. Not only does this give the clerk the ability to see areas previously hidden, the potential crook knows they may be seen…you can see me, I can see you! Dome mirrors are available in full domes, offering a 360 degree view, half dome mirrors, offering a 180 degree view, and quarter dome mirrors, offering a 90 degree view.
Although I have only mentioned dome mirrors in this article, round convex mirrors may also serve a similar purpose. Similar to dome mirrors, the convex curve of the mirror lens itself offers a wider view of an area, more than the standard flat mirror will offer.
