Blind spot mirrors are designed to provide a better view of oncoming traffic for drivers in spots with poor visibility. Whether it be sharp bends, car parks or industrial sites, road safety mirrors can be strategically placed in hazardous locations so all traffic is made aware of any dangers. The curved lens of safety mirrors creates a wider view of the surrounding area so drivers can carefully manoeuvre with the knowledge that no other vehicles are approaching. Not only that, but 360° observe mirrors provide indoor safety too, ideal for keeping an eye on customers in a store.

Types of Blind Spot Mirrors
We stock various traffic mirrors designed for different purposes, all improving visibility, so you can improve the safety of your grounds.
The standard design of safety mirrors entails a curved mirror in a high visibility acrylic frame which is easy to spot for motorists. They can be easily implemented in public areas to control traffic flow or on private industrial sites where forklift trucks and lorries operate in tight spaces.
Our panoramic road safety mirrors offer a 360° view of areas with a high pedestrian flow. Unlike traffic mirrors, they are used indoors as a safety measure to ensure operations are running smoothly and prevent the chance of theft. Common uses of panoramic blind spot mirrors include retail stores, hospitals, indoor car parks and warehouses. A 360° observe mirror is a must for every shop or store.
Each of our blind spot mirrors is designed with various features to suit their surroundings. For outdoor areas, IceFree mirrors use specialist materials which regulate the temperature of the mirror surface to prevent ice and condensation from forming and impacting the functionality of the safety mirrors. By preventing an ice build up during temperatures as low as -20°C, nobody needs to worry about having to scrape away the ice and snow during the cold months.
Where to Place Road Safety Mirrors
The simple design of traffic mirrors makes them easy to implement with minimal disruption. The centre of the mirror, where the mirror protrudes, is the focal point which should be angled as a central point. As the light hits the centre, the mirror highlights this point and provides a view of the surrounding areas. The wide angle is ideal for more complex areas where it can be hard to see beyond a certain point.
Here at Speedy Street Solutions, our blind spot mirrors come with mounting brackets which are adjustable to suit the stainless steel posts. The durability of the materials makes the traffic mirrors virtually indestructible so you can implement a long-lasting solution that is designed to withstand the test of time against the elements.
