Timeless Design the 2028C Magnifying Mirror

Posted by Debra on 31 October 2012

Hi again its Debra busy times at the moment with stock arrival and everyone getting ready for the festive season

I thought today we could cover a little about a mirror that seems to have been around for a long time  and also copied by many the 2028c scissor arm magnifying mirror. Always popular with it seems an unlikely timeless design. This design reminds us or prompts us to think it’s a mirror you would expect to see in an old hotel in the early 1900s or the local barber shop. The distinctive feature is the scissor arm which extends the magnifying mirror out from the wall.

Having looked at our full range of mirrors I believe it this wall mount mirror will extend out 60cm from the wall which is further than any model on the market – apart from the copies out there. If anyone has purchased a copy from overseas then they soon find out the wall bracket that supports the mirror does not have sufficient strength. Our 2028C wall mount magnifying mirror is of the highest quality with more than enough strength to allow the mirror to extend 60cm and swing from left to right 180 degrees. This mirror itself is double sided and by turning the mirror you can have either 4x magnification for close up attention  or 1x to see that all is in order before you walk out the door.

As always I like to give you the space requirement for the scissor arm magnifying mirror so you can plan the best place to put it. As we know all bathrooms are very different hence the versatility of the scissor arm. This mirror will fold back flat against the wall so its neat and tidy the dimensions are as follows with the unit folded back into the smallest possible configuration  41cm high and 23.5cm. Meaning these are it’s highest and widest points.

Mounting this scissor arm magnifying mirror on the wall is the easiest of all with two screws provided, they should be screwed directly into timber located behind the plaster or if you have a tiled surface then drill the holes and put plastic plugs in then screw your screws into the plugs.
When looking over the website whilst the image is fairly obvious its best to look at the code with the numbers 2028 mean the mirror the C stands for chrome and this mirror is available in G so it will have a G after the code. Both models are made from steel and the surfaces Chrome or Gold are a plated finish.

Because we have had enquiries I need to remind you do not mount the mirror inside the shower cubicle. The mirror is real glass and can shatter easily should hot water hit the surface or if you slip and grab for the mirror on instinct it can be very dangerous. Broken glass inside a shower cubicle can result in a nasty cut. Also the metal scissor arm will rust. Chrome, Gold, or Brass plating will not prevent steel from rusting when they get wet with shower water everyday.

A normal mounting in a bathroom will see your mirror last for a long time with the only action you need to do is keep you mirror nice and clean which can be done with a soft rag.
The 2028 Scissor Arm magnifying mirror is a quality buy and should last a lifetime.

In the meantime smile Christmas is coming :)
