Roadside Convex Safety Mirrors are widely used by both commercial premises and local authorities to help eliminate blind spots on approach to roads, junctions and entrances. Convex mirrors are ideal for use in road safety applications - because the domed effect of the mirror will give a wider angle view it will allow the driver to see down the road from a wider range of parked positions.
Steel road mirrors are ideal for use in urban and rural settings. The steel design is highly resistant against impact and will provide years of service life on Irish roads.
Road safety mirrors are also ideal for use at hidden entrances and exits at rural business premises. Install the mirrors in places where HGV drivers or employees are having trouble seeing around blindspots. Having road safety mirrors in place on commercial premises can reduce the risk of accidents and collisions drastically.
