Electric Mirror is the leader in natural-looking LED lighting that reflects true beauty.
When it comes to LED lighting, it’s all about her, and helping her look her best. With LED lighting solutions from Electric Mirror, you’re giving her the perfect, natural-looking lighting for the environment, resulting in a beautiful reflection on her, and on you. And because one size does not fit all, Electric Mirror provides a variety of LED solutions. Our lighting experts will work with you to evaluate the advantages of each LED option, and determine the best one for your particular application.
This technology pairs the best of both worlds: easily-removable LED custom length channels with built-in diffusers. Our channel LED technology provides enhanced design flexibility not typically possible with T5 tubes. With a superior 90+ CRI, these channel LEDs are a preferred choice for custom lighted mirror applications. Learn more in our Channel LED spec sheet.
This flexible LED technology is perfectly suited for unique shapes and form factors, as it allows for better control of light output and eliminates potential dark spots in the frosted areas of a mirror. With a strong CRI rating of 90 or higher and an excellent energy efficiency of up to 100 lumens per watt, the Flex LED provides outstanding color retention for a vivid and long lasting experience. Learn more in our Flex LED spec sheet.
Up to 20 percent more efficient than many tubes currently on the market, our T5 low-volt LED tubes are designed to maximize light output for illuminated mirrors, sconces, and other fluorescent tube applications. The tubes are flicker-free and resistant to vibrations, and the low heat output is cool to the touch. Learn more in our LED Tube spec sheet.
Understand the nuances of LED lighting.
All LED-lighted mirrors are not created equal, so it’s important to understand the range of LED lighting options and mirror selection that ultimately combine to create an optimum guest experience. While many factors influence overall quality and effectiveness, we believe these are among the most important to consider.
CRI—Flatter your guest with the most natural light color
Color Rendering Index (CRI) is a measurement of how accurately a light source reflects true colors, and is expressed in a range from 0 to 100. A higher CRI indicates a more accurate color reflection off of a face. While most LED-lighted mirrors have CRIs of 80 or lower, Electric Mirror leads the industry with LED solutions with CRIs at 90 and above–creating the most natural color available.
Lumen Output—Get the amount of light you need
Each of our LED solutions provide varying amounts of light output. The type of mirror and position of LEDs will also affect overall lumen output of your mirror. Our LEDs range from 396 lm/ft to 1195 lm/ft. Whether you are looking for soft ambient lighting or bright task lighting we have a solution to meet your needs.
Efficacy—Save money while creating the best light output
Efficacy is a measurement of how efficiently a light source produces visible light, and is expressed by lumens per watt (lm/W). A higher efficacy ratio indicates that light is produced more efficiently, providing greater value and ROI. While most LED-lighted mirrors have efficacy ratings averaging 85 lm/W, Electric Mirror LED lighted mirrors boast efficacy ratios ranging from 100 lm/W to 156 lm/W.
Effective Lifespan™—Ensure sufficient light for your guests
Lifespan, expressed in hours, is an estimate of the expected life of an LED light source. Since lumen output typically diminishes over time and anything less than 70% is likely to be considered insufficient by guests, it’s important to be wary of exaggerated claims and verify the effective lumen output at the end of the stated lifespan. Electric Mirror selects LEDs that have an effective lifespan of at least 50,000 and up to 65,000 hours, providing 10 to 13 years of the best LED light without compromise.
Consistent Lumen Output™—Retain consistent light output over the life of your LEDs
Electric Mirror’s Osram Sylvania LEDs and drivers offer Consistent Lumen Output—a unique feature that provides the ability to maintain 100% of the initial lumen output over the entire lifespan of the LED. Unlike typical LEDs that naturally diminish over time, Consistent Lumen Output guarantees exceptional light output, maximizing your investment over time.
LED Drivers—Optimize your LEDs with the right driver
LED drivers work with the LED light source to provide power and lighting control functions. There’s a wide variety of LED drivers, so it’s important to select the right driver for your application. More sophisticated drivers provide better control and add features to extend LED lifespan and prevent flickering. Electric Mirror selects the ideal drivers for obtaining the optimum balance of control, LED longevity and lighting experience.
Longevity—Rest assured your mirror will stand the test of time
Some mirrors, especially those using lower quality glass, can be affected by the environment in which they’re used, with damp bathrooms posing a particular challenge that can lead to unsightly mold-like corrosion and undesirable de-silvering. Electric Mirror’s DuraMirror™ is the only mirror engineered specifically for the harsh bathroom environment, and has been proven to outperform other mirrors, lasting up to three times longer.
Reflection—See a superior representation from anywhere in the room
Viewed from near or far, the image reflected in a mirror should look realistic. Some mirrors, especially when viewed from a distance, distort proportions. With Electric Mirror, what you see reflected is an accurate representation.
Only Electric Mirror provides scientific analysis of your LED-lighted mirror.
When considering lighted mirror options, it’s important to remember that while different mirrors may look similar, there can be significant variance in how they perform. It’s not enough to know how the light engine itself performs—you need to know what happens when it’s placed behind your mirror. That’s why we conduct a Photometry and Chromaticity Analysis for your lighted mirror and provide you with a detailed report. When considering your lighted mirror options, insist on a full-fixture Photometry and Chromaticity Report, so you can have confidence that your finished lighted mirror product will meet your expectations.
