Our safety convex mirrors suit a variety of applications, including road and pedestrian traffic situations, distribution centres, and public or workplace parking areas. Our mirrors can be installed in retail stores for surveillance, driveways and entrances for vehicle and pedestrian awareness, and on building exteriors to help people see around blind corners.
Simply put, a safety convex mirror allows people to see around blind corners, improving their visibility in public and workplace environments. This minimises the risk of collisions between pedestrians and vehicles and can improve overall safety.
In our experience, such mirrors are frequently used to see around blind spots from a vehicle perspective, or in warehouse or retail environments to provide better visibility and generally improved building security.
When choosing a convex safety mirror, it is important to select the right mirror for your situation and facility.
The main features to consider are the size and curvature of the mirror, as this affects how objects are reflected. In public guidance, VicRoads, one of the major Australian road safety authorities, considers that for on-road usage, mirrors of 600mm, 800m, and 1000mm are commonly used. Smaller mirrors may be appropriate for indoor usage.
Barrier Group offers one of the largest ranges of mirrors in Australia, and can work closely with you to identify something that works for your particular installation. Our range includes full domed mirrors, quarter mirrors, indoor and outdoor mirrors suitable for use in all weather conditions.
Convex mirrors should generally be securely mounted to a wall, pole or other high-point to ensure they can be seen and fulfill their role.
Typically, a convex mirror is installed at a place that provides an optimal view of the road (and any oncoming vehicles) or the site. When installing the mirror, it may be necessary to also test visibility from a variety of potential eye heights.
Barrier Group’s safety convex mirrors that are suitable for outdoor use also come fitted with a visor to ensure that dust does not accumulate on the surface of the mirror. Most of our mirrors come with the required wall mount brackets and fixings.
