Acrylic convex mirrors are highly versatile safety & security mirrors for indoor and outdoor use.
Technology keeps bringing new innovations, but acrylic convex mirrors are still one of the most tried and true loss prevention and security solutions available today. The reason why acrylic is such a popular choice, is because it provides excellent clarity, is shatterproof, lightweight and overall tough with good durability.
They are the most economical mirror choice, with long term savings benefits as well. They are the most common traffic mirror, driveway mirror, and overall security mirror sold today.
Round convex mirrors with an acrylic lens is popular due to the number of applications for this type of mirror.

Convex mirrors, which we commonly refer to as the workhorse of our security and safety mirrors, come with a choice of four different types of backing materials.
Acrylic Convex Mirror Backing Types:
- Indoor backing
- Heavy duty plastic backing
- Galvanized steel backing
- No Backing
No backing is a great economical backing type that should only be used indoors. Although there is no backing for this mirror, it is easily mounted with the included mounting brackets. No backing mirrors are economical acrylic mirrors and are not recommend for outdoor use or indoor use where impacts are likely The backing material is only there to protect the mirror lens itself from damage.
Indoor backing is recommended only for use indoors and is made of a hardboard material which is not suitable for outdoor use. Mirrors that are to be used in high humidity or outdoor conditions we recommend the heavy duty plastic backing or the galvanized steel backing.
Glavanized steel is the toughest backing material available for outdoor use. The galvanized steel ensures the mirror lens will be protected from extreme weather conditions. For extreme wet, cold or windy climates, this is the recommended backing type. We also recommend acrylic mirrors with steel backing in situations where vandalism may occur. Prisons, playgrounds, and parking garages are excellent locations for steel backing. We also recommend this type for driveway mirrors and traffic mirrors as well.
Heavy duty plastic backing is also a great choice for indoor or outdoor use. It is light weight, yet durable and impact resistant. This backing will stand up to most weather conditions and is lighter than our steel backing.
All convex mirrors are equipped with a bracket for mounting. Most models come with a telescoping bracket. Double mounting brackets (for extreme wind) are also available for certain models. For specifics we recommend visiting each product type and see the available mounting options available or call us directly to discuss options.
