Discover the truth by reflecting.

You like to set your own optical limits? Then our range of one-way mirrored glass gives you the opportunity to select the finest of graduations with regard to transparency and reflection.

No matter which SPYMIRROR option you choose, the reflective properties of the coated side are always higher than those on the side facing the viewer. In general, the following rule applies: the more transparent our SPYMIRROR glass, the lower its reflective properties. Check to see what level of optical separation you require and then select the required glass from our range of mirrored glass sheets with their light transmission levels of 1%, 12% or 20%. We will also be pleased to satisfy any special requests for a light transmission level of 30% or 40%. You can choose from monolithic glass, laminated glass or toughened/tempered glass as base material.

Please note
: a difference in illuminance levels is a prerequisite to ensure the functionality of our SPYMIRROR glass. The difference in light intensity levels between the rooms must be at least 1:5 lux - and at least 1:10 lux where our 20% SPYMIRROR is used.

SPYMIRROR glass is mainly used for observation purposes, as it allows the observer to monitor the situation while remaining hidden from view – an effect which is also increasingly being used in interior design and exterior architectural applications allowing you to deliberately control people’s ability to look out of or into a room. 20% SPYMIRROR is also often used to make monitors and displays disappear when switched off – when switched on, the bright monitor or display is visible behind the mirrored glass. Typical applications include:

  • Observation applications (supermarkets, security zones, conference rooms with cameras)
  • Exterior and interior design, particularly for display integration

1%, 12% and 20% SPYMIRROR types are available in a variety of thicknesses.

Glass thickness (single sheet)Max. Dimensions
3–12 mmmax. 1900 mm x 3005 mm

The reflection values both of the glass side as well as the coated side of the sheet vary depending on which type of SPYMIRROR glass you choose. Choose from the following combinations:

  •   1% type – 43%/53% glass side/coated side
  • 12% type – 34%/46% glass side/coated side
  • 20% type – 24%/35% glass side/coated side

Handle SPYMIRROR with care and store glass with its protective film still attached, in an area protected from sunlight. Damage can be avoided by keeping supports, layers and suction tools clean. During installation, remove any traces of sealants right away. It is essential that you keep other building material such as lime or cement away from glass surfaces, as these binders can harm the coating. If the glass does get dirty, wash away any spilled material with plenty of water and avoid rubbing the material, as dirt grains may scratch the glass.

To ensure your SPYMIRROR glass stays clear, it should be carefully and regularly cleaned. We recommend using a soft cotton cloth, or a sponge and plenty of water. If needed, non-abrasive, neutral detergents can also be added to the water.
