What is the ideal size and placement of convex mirrors in underground car parks?

The ideal size and placement of convex mirrors in underground car parks significantly enhance safety and visibility for drivers and pedestrians. Generally, the recommended size for these mirrors ranges between 600mm to 1000mm in diameter, depending on the specific requirements of your car park. It's crucial to select larger mirrors for busier areas and wider intersections. Barrier Group offers a variety of options to suit your needs.To optimise visibility, install convex mirrors at strategic locations such as blind spots, intersections, and tight corners. The ideal mounting height should be between 2.5 to 3.5 metres, ensuring clear viewing for all vehicles. Additionally, position the mirrors at a slight downward angle to provide a comprehensive view of the approaching traffic. By adhering to these guidelines, you can significantly improve safety and navigation within your underground car park.
