Hybrid Safety Mirror for Behavioral Health

  • Why should I replace my polished stainless steel or acrylic mirrors?
    Patients suffering from mental health issues are getting the best care when they are in your facility. We believe the care you provide should extend to the mirror in your patient's room. Waking-up each morning to the distortion of a polished steel or acrylic mirror could negatively impact a patient's recovery. Switch to the RAO Hybrid Safety Mirror, and offer the best care available.

  • How is the Hybrid Safety Mirror different than a standard glass mirror?
    The Hybrid safety mirror is actually composed of 3 different materials. The first surface is tempered glass. The next layer is PVB (Polyvinyl butyral) which is a thin film with excellent optical clarity, toughness and flexibility. It is best known as the material in automobile windshields that holds the glass together during impact. The last layer is a traditional mirror. The whole package together creates a material that has the reflective qualities of a standard glass mirror but is safe for behavioral health environments.
