Convex Safety Mirrors are a widely-used safety device in Australia, to increase the visibility of obstacles in hazardous locations. These devices are designed to provide a wider field of vision to reduce blind spots and to indicate to the viewer the presence or absence of a moving or stationary vehicle and/or pedestrian. The convex shape of the mirror results in distortion of the image, speed and distance of an object. 

A Convex Safety Mirror is designed to provide low levels of distortion, making it suitable for use on roads and in areas where image distortion may be hazardous (e.g. roads, car parks, warehouses). Convex Safety Mirrors may be either wall mounted or pole mounted, depending on the height required and the range of available backing. For example, a pole mounting bracket will be required on a street corner, and a wall mounting bracket will be required in a shopping centre.

It is important when installing a convex mirror, to ensure the Safety Mirror’s positioning and size is appropriate for its location.

Convex Mirror Size & Positioning Guide:

Consult the following guide to determine the appropriate size for your application:

  1.    Estimate distance between the intended placement of the mirror and the expected position of the viewer.
  2.    Estimate distance between the intended placement of the mirror and the object or area that must be highly visible.
  3.    Add the distances together from steps 1 and 2. This combined distance* will determine the size of the mirror.

Bronson Safety's Crystal View™ Safety Mirrors are available in a range of sizes varying from 300mm to 1000mm.

Convex Mirror Material & Application Guide:

The material used to create a Safety Mirror will affect factors of durability, cost and the mirror's suitability of each specific application (e.g. indoor or outdoor).

The following table compares these factors for the three most commonly used Australian Safety Mirror materials:




Good: Durable, scratch-resistant and cost-effective.
Will indent with force.


Car parks, loading docks, warehouses, retail facilities, low visibility intersections and road and convenience stores.




Better: Durable, weather resistant, scratch resistant.


Buildings, car parks, play grounds, loading docks, childcare centres and super markets.




Best: Highly durable, resistant to impact, extreme
weather conditions and vandalism.


Areas with extreme weather or vandalism, including railway stations, airports, public areas, roads, intersections and mine sites.

Convex Safety Mirrors are available for both Indoor and Outdoor applications. Outdoor Safety Mirrors are identifiable by a ‘visor’ that shields against glare and reduces weathering. Indoor Safety Mirrors will generally not require a visor.
