Types of Lenses
A popular lens material because it provides a nice reflection while less expensive, lighter, and reduces the risk of breakage than glass. It is not shatterproof but is harder to break than glass. Although it is tough, care must be taken to ensure the lens material does not scratch.
Another great option. Glass will provide the most crystal clear reflection of an image available and will typically eliminate any image distortion. The glass we use is thick and will not break easily, however, we recommend you only place glass security mirrors where there's not much risk of breakage or where breakage might cut someone. Glass convex mirrors are commonly used inside office buildings, courtrooms and other areas where vandalism risk is reduced. Of the lens types we carry, glass tends to be the heavies but will provide the clearest image available.

Sometimes confused with concave mirrors, Concave refers to curve of the lens towards the center producing a focal area outside the lens. A concave mirror has an outward curve with the center being higher than the edges. This curvature provides more surface area and thus provides the viewer a larger reflected area, providing a virtual image of a large area.
