We have compiled the most commonly asked questions for your convenience.
How are your prices cheaper than other companies?
We do not have the same high overheads as other companies. We always have and always will offer fair quotes and pricing.
I need a mirror, how much do you charge?
Please check our custom mirror order page for pricing. The price depends if you would like to pick up your glass up, have it delivered or installed.
How much for installation?
Installation costs vary depending on the type of glass, the height, length, thickness, edge-work, number of pieces required, your location and complexity of the job. Please fill out the custom order form for a individualised quote.
How much for a full length mirror?
Well, it depends on what your interpretation of 'full length' is. An NBA basketball players full length mirror would be 2m+ tall. If you're not the tallest person in the world a 1.6m mirror will do just fine. 🙂 If you are leaning the mirror against the wall, a 1.6m mirror will reflect right up to the 2.4m high ceiling and would suit perfectly.
How much for a normal sized mirror?
Please let us know the size of the mirror you require in mm, cm or meters. One's interpretation of a normal sized mirror differs. We have some create value options for common sizes perfect for your room or bathroom in our shop.
How do I install a mirror myself?
We recommend opting for professional installation as expensive specialist glazing equipment, knowledge, experience, skill and guts are required.
Do you do framed arch mirrors?
No. we offer rectangular or square frames on straight cut mirrors.
How much for a normal sized window replacement?
Please inform us of the size of the window you would like replaced.
Do you install to Australian Standards?
Yes all our glass sold is installed to and complies with AS1288-2006.
What is the biggest mirror you can install?
We can install 3658 x 2438mm. This is a 4-5 man lift and does not fit in most doorways.
The largest mirror in 4mm thickness we will install is 2.5m². Any bigger than this and you must move up to the thicker 6mm option.
How much does glass weigh? Can I lift my mirror on my own?
Most 4mm mirrors we sell and install weigh between 5-23kg. Larger 6mm thick mirrors weigh between 5-133kg depending on the size. To calculate the weight of glass or a mirror simply multiple the area by the thickness and then multiply by 2.5m. (Height x width x thickness x 2.5). e.g. 1.8m x 0.8m 4mm mirror: 1.8 x 0.8 x 4 x 2.5 = 14.4kg
How strong is the glass? Will my mirror break?
The strength of glass depends on the thickness and production process it has been through. The surface the glass rests on and leans against also plays a role in the strength of the glass. Having a completely flat contact surface area to install a mirror onto increases the overall strength and contributes towards reflecting a perfectly true image back. All glass does have a breaking point. Respect the glass and it will respect you. 'An object will not change its motion unless a force acts on it.'
Are your mirrors safe to lean against a wall?
Yes, a mirror leaning against a wall will not break. We offer soft pads to sit the mirror on if you have an uneven or hard tiled floor making the mirror safe. Providing you do not come home drunk after a fun night out on the town with the boys and proceed to run and jump into the mirror, it will not move. Newtons first law applies here. Y
Is the mirror safe?
We install to Australian Standards to ensure the mirror will never move with out special combination of glue. If someone were to run and jump into the mirror, the mirror would stay on the wall and may just crack with the glue behind the backing.
Do you offer pick up?
Yes, of course. We recommend bringing blankets, towels, tape and anything soft to make transporting your glass even safer. We currently maintain a 100% success rate for client picking up their own glass and transporting it safely home. We have special tape, foam and cardboard to assist with pick ups if necessary. Please be sure to measure your vehicle to ensure the size you are picking up will fit in your vehicle. You can push the back seats and front passenger seat down to lay the glass flat. Most cars will fit 1800mm in.
