A lot of people aren't aware that toughened mirror glass exists.
At Rough Old Glass our process starts with clear or body tinted transparent glass. Cut to size, edges polished or bevelled and toughened, we then hand silver the panels to create toughened antiqued mirrors.
Where mirror panels or tiles are being used behind a heat source such as an AGA or where there are socket cutouts required it's really important to use toughened glass to prevent cracks occurring during or after installation.
In commercial environments too - toughened mirror glass is often the only acceptable material.
Nearly all of our finishes can be provided on toughened glass. Order a finish sample here.
