@j-e-f-f said in Which type of mirror to use:
Transmittance depends on the brightness of your room. If the location of your mirror will get a lot of natural light, then you’ll want a higher level of transmittance. If it’s in a darker location, then 20 - 30% transmittance will be fine.
I can’t really agree on transmittance. Isn’t 20-30% much too high for a darker room?
The glass I have in mind as one of the best experienced is Pilkington MirroPane ChromeSpy.
It has a transmittance of 8% and I hear that’s very good for rooms with natural lighting…
My current view:
Two values are important in terms of glass: Reflectance and transmittance.
Highest possible reflectance is always best as I would assume. Values of >60% are good. The more the better
Transmittance of < 10% is best for darker rooms
Transmittance of > 5% is best for lit rooms.
Please correct me if I’m wrong…
