Mirror makes an impact in the kitchen

Struggling to add that contemporary wow factor to your kitchen or bathroom? Now homeowners and renovators can use mirrors where you’ve never thought of before.

JELD-WEN Windows and Doors’ Aurora Mirastar is a truly innovative mirror. It is heat resistant. It is moisture resistant. And it can be toughened.

These features allow you to use mirror where you’ve never used it before.

Use it as a mirrored wall partition. Use it instead of glass in a showerscreen or balustrade. Use it as a mirrored splashback in a kitchen.

Kitchen Mirrors
“Aurora Mirastar copes with the heat and humidity created behind a stove top. Conventional mirrors cannot do this because they cannot be toughened and are affected by moisture.”

This revolutionary new mirror application was used to stunning effect in the latest series of Australia’s favourite renovation reality show, The Block, on Channel Nine.

The Block Sky High contestants, including the popular twins Alisa and Lysandra and Melbourne’s Bec and George used Mirastar in their kitchens to stand-out effect.

Aurora Mirastar copes with the heat and humidity created behind a stove top. Conventional mirrors cannot do this because they cannot be toughened and are affected by moisture.

Stegbar, a member of the JELD-WEN family, offers Mirastar for applications in kitchens and also bathrooms.

Aurora Mirastar’s unique chromium coating is not affected by high humidity or moisture. So where conventional mirrors can develop a black “edge creep” as moisture attacks the silvered paint, Aurora Mirastar will never degrade even if used as a wall panel in a shower recess.

Mirastar also meets Australian Standards for the safe use of glass as it is toughened to Grade A Safety Standards.

Conventional mirrors cannot be toughened and so their application is limited mostly to being fixed to a wall or needing to have a solid vinyl backing applied over the silvered paint surface.
