What is a Traffic Mirror?
Traffic Mirrors, or more commonly known as convex mirrors, are mirrors that can be installed onto a roadway that allows drivers or pedestrians to see oncoming traffic where they would usually be unable. Using a traffic mirror is a perfect way to see around bends or obstructions, helping to obtain better traffic safety standards for pedestrians and motorists alike. Most traffic mirrors can be installed quickly and easily onto a standard 76mm pole or onto a wall using a mounting bracket. One of Pittman’s most popular traffic mirror options is the SeeClear Road Side Convex Mirror. This acrylic mirror is popular on rural roads for private home owners who cannot see oncoming traffic coming from a particular direction. By installing a traffic mirror like this a home owner leaving their driveway would be able to see past blind-spots that may be the root of accidents and collisions. Each of these convex mirrors comes with mounting brackets for a 76mm pole and brackets to mount directly to a wall. The traffic mirror is made with a highly durable plastic frame and is even equipped with a hood to help reduce glare.
What is a steel traffic mirror?
Where the acrylic traffic mirror is not exactly indestructible the SeeClear Traffic Steel Convex Mirror is made from stainless steel and can withstand plenty of punishment while in use. These traffic mirrors are ideal for more urban environments and are resistant to missiles being thrown at them and can withstand rocks, weather and vandalism. Again, each mirror can be mounted directly to a 76mm pole and will be perfect for urban towns or cities that may see it’s fair share of vandalism. Even if the front is dented it will still produce a decent image to help motorists see beyond blind-spots.
