MIRALITE® PURE

The ecological footprint of MIRALITE PURE has been reduced by working on every step of its life cycle.

A product which protects well-being and health, with no toxic substances, MIRALITE PURE is a decorative interior product created to give the effect of an aged mirror but produced to the latest quality, manufacturing and environmental standards.

MIRALITE pure is designed to offer a subtle retro appearance in any interior scheme in which a stylish period effect is being created.

We spend a lot of our time indoors.  There are many factors that influence how we feel inside a building, including the overall aesthetic, successful interior design, balanced noise levels or acoustics and natural levels of light.  A well designed and constructed space can enhance our sense of comfort and wellbeing, helping to improve health and productivity; important across all building sectors.  

It's the balance of the key factors below that provides overall comfort.

 

Safety

Safety glass, which will be either toughened or laminated, depending on where and how it is being used, protects from the risk of serious injury caused by accidental breakage or impact. When it breaks, it breaks safely thus protecting against the risk of serious injury.

The types of safety glass have different benefits:

  • Toughened glass fractures into small relatively blunt fragments upon failure, preventing cutting and piercing injuries associated with large shards of annealed glass.
  • Laminated glass contains a polymeric interlayer, designed to retain sections of glass in the event of fracture, and so prevent shards separating from the main body of the glass. Laminated glass also provides an enhanced level of protection where there is a change in level, and so a risk of falling, or where there is a potential for objects to fall from height onto occupied areas below.

The type and level of safety can vary from one project to the next. Saint-Gobain Glass always recommend seeking advice from one our Specification Managers before you proceed with a particular glass type.

MIRALITE PURE may be specified with a protective plastic film applied to the back of the mirror for use in high traffic areas and others where impact may be a possibility. The film prevents the glass from shattering into large shards, providing extra safety in case of impact or accidental damage with no adverse effect on the appearance of the mirrors.

 

Security

Security rated glass can help protect against break-in attempts or vandalism by delaying, or even preventing, penetration through the glass in the event of forced break in or damage.

As MIRALITE PURE is used internally, it would not ordinarily be expected to require any security performance.
