Two Way Mirrors – A General Introduction

A Two Way Mirror looks like any other mirror, when viewed by those who are unaware of its presence. The basic principle behind a two way mirror is it acts as a window from one viewpoint, however, when viewed from the opposite side it acts and looks like a normal mirror.

These properties may make you think of spy movies and it’s certainly true a Two Way Mirror can be a useful surveillance aid. For example, they are commonly used in banks, shops and other commercial settings as a discreet observational tool.

They do, however, have a broad range of other uses. Within scientific environments, mirrors of this type can be used to assist with the observation of experiments and subjects. This allows behaviour to be observed and recorded without the intrusion that might otherwise be necessary. Such mirrors are also suitable for use in hospitals, including within operating theatres for student viewing areas.
