Traffic Mirrors have been become commonplace over the last number of years across the UK and provide a plethora of benefits from the moment they are installed. Quick and easy to install, traffic mirrors allow the customer to see oncoming traffic where they normally wouldn’t be able to see, ideal on rural roads where tight country lanes present a problem or areas that may have a bad blindspot for motorists.
What kind of traffic mirror do I require?
When it comes to installing a traffic mirror there are plenty of options to choose from here at Pittman. Depending on where you are putting the mirror may affect which one you eventually purchase, as well as the price of the particular mirror.
For country roads an all-purpose acrylic mirror works really well for almost all our customers. The SeeClear Roadside Convex Mirror is a typical example – available in various sizes this traffic mirror can be installed quickly and easily and provides instant vision for oncoming traffic. Because this convex mirror is made with an acrylic material they are breakable, but shatterproof. On a country road this type of traffic mirror is perfect for the average rural homeowner, especially when you don’t have to worry about vandalism.
Can I purchase a strong traffic mirror?
Again our range here at Pittman is quite vast when it comes to traffic mirrors. One of our best mirrors is the SeeClear Traffic Steel Convex Mirror. Where the acrylic mirror would most likely break when put through vandalism, the steel traffic mirror is made from the toughest of steel and the surface has been polished down to a mirror sheen. This provides excellent vision for customer and again it can be installed quickly and easily out of the box. This traffic mirror has been put to the test by our team and it can survive all types of vandalism, from rocks being thrown at it to being hit with a blunt object. For a tough, robust traffic mirror like this it costs more, however, it provides even more peace of mind in comparison to other traffic mirrors - badly needed in urban areas with high levels of vandalism.
