More than visibly better. At home in destructive environments there’s no other option, but Plasiax™ REFLECT
Plasiax Reflect at a glance...
- Designed for destructive and impact-prone environments
- Exhibits over 200 times more impact resistance than glass
- Less than half the weight of glass
- Entirely recyclable material
- Easy and safe to fabricate
- Excellent temperature stability with no loss of property
Our alternative to glass mirror based on optically clear polycarbonate sheet, designed for destructive and impact-prone environments. This material exhibits over 200 times more impact resistance than glass while being less than half the weight and also warrants some unique heat and flame resistant properties.
The material is paper backed on both surfaces to ensure optimum protection during fabrication and handling processes. Plasiax reflect can also be hard coated to provide enhanced surface protection to resist routine cleaning and abrasion from general use.

Strength and impact resistant
PLASIAX™ REFLECT has 250 times the impact resistance of glass and is therefore a much superior product in terms of security and handling. The product complies with the following glazing regulations;
- Safety glazing – EN12600:2002
- Security glazing – EN 356:2000
Polycarbonate is less than half the weight of glass (SG 1.2) saving cost of transportation, time of installation, and reduced loadings on the mounted surface. This can be a great help in applications such as anti-ligature furniture where extra weight on components such as hinges can be an issue.
Heat resistance and flammability
PLASIAX™ REFLECT has excellent temperature stability with no loss of property from -40˚C to 130˚C making it secure for most locations around the globe. It complies with BS476 part 7 with a class 1Y rating and European standard EN13501-1 with a B – s2, d0 rating along with the ‘self-extinguishing’ product classification.
Polycarbonate is an entirely recyclable material.
As with all polycarbonate sheets the product is easy and safe to fabricate using a variety of simple processes to create finishes such as chamfered edges and custom shapes.
