Mirror Hanging Instructions
With the exception of irregular shaped items (eg Heart shaped mirrors) our mirrors can be used both wall hanging or free standing, depending on its safe location and environment.
It is essential your mirror is hung on a wall of suitable load bearing capacity. Please seek advice if you are unsure about your wall.
Please note there are a variety of fixings available for different wall types. Please seek advice to ensure you have the correct type for your wall. Please also ensure your intended hanging area is not situated close to electrical wiring or pipes.
DO NOT USE chain, wire or cord to hang any mirror. 2 SCREWS ARE REQUIRED. Wall mounting through the use of wire can create unintended inwards force on the hooks which can cause failure, in some cases almost instantly.
We do not recommend using your mirror close to areas of high heat or high moisture.
Decide which way you would like to hang the mirror based on the hangers provided. Some mirrors can only be hung one way, ie square, round or shaped mirrors.
Measure the distance between the 2 hangers fitted to the back of the mirror.
Use a spirit level to mark the distance on the wall, this will be the distance between your 2 screws/fixings.
Drill 2 holes for the wall fixings and screws. Please leave approx. 10mm of the screw protruding from the wall. USE STRONG SCREWS WITH A WIDE SCREW HEAD.
We recommend that the screws should be drilled at a slight angle to ensure the mirror will be secure.
Hang the mirror onto the 2 screws, ensuring that the hangers are securely over the screw head.
IF YOU WANT TO STAND YOUR MIRROR
If you intend to use your mirror floor or mantle standing, we would advise securing the top of the mirror to the wall to prevent it from tilting forward. If possible, placing the mirror on a none slip surface would also aid the mirror in remaining upright.
IMPORTANT CARE IN USE
Do not strike the mirror glass with any hard or pointed object
Do not position the mirror close to excessive heat or moisture.
Do not use abrasive cleaning substances to clean the mirror.
Do not hang the mirror in areas with risk of accidental impact.
