Practical and Aesthetic Benefits of Gym Mirrors

The term “gym mirror” refers to large mirrors that are installed on the walls of rooms used for athletics, exercise, or performing arts. Gym mirrors have both practical and aesthetic functions in these areas. A gym wall mirror is a great tool for monitoring one’s own progress and performance. It enables the athlete, exerciser, or performer to pinpoint what needs improvement or correction. A gym mirror can also be motivational by providing a visible indicator of progress, achievements and mastery of skills. Gym mirrors provide a positive experience in other ways, too. These large mirrors “open up” a room, giving it the appearance of an area twice as large. In addition, they illuminate the room by reflecting light. A bright, spacious room is a pleasant place; one that will enhance the appeal of your gym, studio, or home!

Gym Mirror Installation

To safely and securely install your gym mirrors, we take into account both the weight of the mirror and the need to keep it in place. Your mirrors will be attached to the walls with mirror mastic, glue specifically formulated for this application. The mirrors will rest on the floor, trim, J-channel, or L-bar to support the weight. The factors to consider for each of these choices can be quickly viewed.

Floor – This is cost-effective because the floor is already there. However, if the mirrors go all the way down to the floor, they are more at risk of being kicked or scuffed.
Trim – Resting the mirrors on trim is just as cost-effective if you already have floor trim. Again, consider the placement of your specific trim and whether it is at an appropriate distance from the floor to serve as the base support for your gym mirrors.
J-Channel – This is installed at the distance from the floor that you choose which can help keep your mirrors from being kicked, etc. J-channel is made of metal, and its profile is shaped like a “J”, so a thin strip of metal will be visible along the bottom of the mirrors.
L-Bar – This is just like J-channel, except that it has an “L” shaped profile, so it is minimally visible along the bottom of the mirrors. It gives the mirrors a frameless look.
