Mirrors, Glazed Screens and Sidelights

Mirrors, large panels of glass, glazed screens and sidelights can present problems for people with vision loss. The specifications provided in the Glass Doors, Glazed Screens and Sidelights section of this website are equally applicable to mirrors, glazed screens and sidelights found inside a building.

Floor-to-ceiling mirrors inside a building can be confusing for people with vision loss and should be avoided. If they are used, they should incorporate decals or other highlighting methods described in the Glass Doors, Glazed Screens and Sidelights portion of Exterior Doors.
