Institution mirrors have been created for use in institutional environments such as police stations, prisons and secure hospitals.

They come in a variety of styles and are usually made from either polycarbonate or stainless steel, depending on where they are being used. These mirrors have unique features that meet Home Office, Police and Prison Service standards whilst providing additional security at an affordable cost.

Institutional polycarbonate mirrors are ideal for areas where flame resistance is a priority, such as factories and kitchens. They have a powder-coated tamper proof frame and the mirrors are securely fastened to the tabbed steel fixing frame to prevent any injuries.

In comparison, institutional stainless-steel mirrors are made from highly polished mirror-quality stainless steel. These mirrors are unbreakable, heat resistant and easier to maintain. Those with a half or quarter face can be supplied with anti-ligature frames.
