Mirror, mirror on the wall: why mirror glass from Tufwell is the best of all

Friday 13th March, 2020

Friday 13 March 2020 marks the first Friday 13th of the decade. Long considered bad luck by the superstitious, Friday the 13th ranks alongside walking under a ladder, opening an umbrella indoors and breaking a mirror as an omen of ill tidings. But with mirror glass from Tufwell Glass there’s no need to fear – our durable and versatile mirror glass products will bring light and style into your home or office.


Mirror glass, also known as silvered glass, is a type of float glass. Float glass is the most used form of glass today; it is structurally flexible and, when in its molten state can be bent into different forms. When transformed into mirror glass, float glass is manufactured with a silver reflective coating on its back surface before being covered with layers of protective paint. After processing, an additional backing is applied to improve impact safety.


Mirror glass has a myriad of applications for the home, office or commercial venue. In the home, it can be used to reflect light and create the illusion of space in smaller areas, such as hallways. Mirrored glass can be toughened to provide a safe kitchen glass splashback or to create stylish mirror glass shelves in a bathroom. In the office, mirror glass can help create the right impression – adding light and depth to any area, particularly office receptions, and reflecting and picking up colour tones to create a warm and welcoming effect. In a commercial setting, the application of mirror glass is endless. From hotel bedrooms to restrooms; bars, cafés and restaurants; retail fitting rooms, gyms and beauty salons; mirror glass products can be designed and manufactured to your business specifications and finish, including high-polished edges, etched mirror glass or tinted mirror glass.

Whatever your requirements for the home, office or commercial setting, Tufwell Glass can provide quality and affordable mirror glass to suit your needs. Gives us a call today on 01293 533 533 or at sales@tufwell.co.uk.
