GENERAL INFO ON MIRROR TVs

You can see Reflectel Mirror TV’s in our Tribeca Showroom (by appointment only). We also have Reflectels in several locations in New York, and DC. For more information on these locations please see our Showrooms tab above.

If you would like to schedule an appointment in our Tribeca Showroom please make an appointment by filling out our Request Info form or call us at 212-431-0633.

You get the same high quality audio as from any other TV. Reflectel works seamlessly with all augmented sound systems such as Sonos sound bars and all other surround sound systems.

Reflectel uses the best brands for optimal display quality. Our Samsung, LG, and Sony Mirror TVs have 4K resolution with full, vibrant color.

Unlike other companies, we combine the brightest, thinnest televisions on the market with the most transparent mirror available to deliver uncompromising picture clarity. Click here to read more about our Glass options.

Our Mirror TV systems are as easy to install as any regular TV and are beautiful pieces of functional art. A custom project where you just buy our glass will require hiring a woodworker or cabinetmaker to frame it up which can be expensive, require more work on your part, and often takes more time before your Mirror TV is ready for use.

Timing varies based on the frame selections but generally due to current conditions our lead time is 12-14 weeks.

No, the television is provided by the client. We recommend buying from Best Buy or Amazon and having it sent straight to our NYC showroom where we fabricate our products. We are also happy to assist with TV model recommendations.

We recommend televisions from LG, Samsung or Sony for the best picture quality. We use Rtings.com to stay up to date with the best models.

Our Mirror TV prices are dependent on the following:

– TV Size
Orientation
– Frame Series

 

For reference, a 49″ Landscape edge-to-edge Mirror TV begins at $7,425. Please contact us if you’d like a customized quote. Visit our Pricing Page for additional information. (all pricing subject to change)

Please note that pricing is exclusive of the television, shipping and installation.

We work with the broker called Ground Force shipping and prices are passed on at cost. Please note that this is subject to an additional estimate.

Surface Mounted Mirror TVs are proud of the wall—the average outside frame depth is approximately 3-3/4″ – 4″ (dependent on the chosen frame) and the average frame inside depth is approximately 3 1-4″ (this is dependent on the client’s TV).

See examples of our Surface Mounted Buildups.

This would require us to see the frame in-person to determine if we can use it for a Mirror TV to make sure it’s structurally viable. This is especially the case for vintage frames.

We can turn any sized television into a Mirror TV, from a 32″ to 85″ and beyond. We offer a variety of Orientations and Contours so you are not restricted to only a Landscape edge-to-edge style. We can fabricate your Mirror TV so that the mirror is larger than the TV screen size. Each Mirror TV is custom fabricated for each client.

It is possible to replace the televisions in our Mirror TVs. Please contact us for more information.

 REFLECTEL MIRROR TV GLASS

Our 70% VIEW Glass is our most recommended option. VIEW is the only optical quality, water-white, 70% TV transmission glass on the market. Other makers use architectural glass that has iron content and reads as green and a much lower television transmission rate. Read more about our glass options.

When watching a Mirror TV we recommend doing so in optimal conditions. This means as little natural daylight as possible as direct sunlight will affect the picture quality. It is simply the nature of the product and we pride ourselves on our 70% VIEW glass which has the highest television transmission on the market.

We offer two sizing options for glass samples:

– 3 x 3 – $65.00
– 12 x 12 – $185.00

NOTE: Prices are inclusive of packing and shipping (Continental US only) and subject to change.

If interested, please email info@reflectel.com with the subject: “Glass Samples Request” and someone will get back to you in 1-2 business days. Or call us at 212-431-0633.

INSTALLATION FACTS AND GUIDELINES

Our beautiful Reflectel Mirror TV installation includes us hanging it on your wall with our custom constructed wooden cleat systems. The way it works: the male piece goes on the wall, the female is embedded in the Mirror TV. It’s more stable than traditional TV wall mounts. You may want to string the cables back through the wall for the best appearance. If the TV outlet is behind the frame, we customize the profile to facilitate different situations.

 

Please click here for more information on the Installation Process.

Yes! We can build up our frames so that a majority of the depth is hidden in a recessed cavity. This would require us working with your AV Integrator or Contractor to make sure everything is measured and produced correctly.

Yes, but we request that if you are interested in utilizing an articulating arm that you let us know ASAP as this affects pricing. We work with AV Integrators, Contractors and any other Professionals to ensure a seamless installation process.

We can recommend Professionals and we can also provide step-by-step installation instructions for them.

Walls need to be blocked. Depending on size and weight standard blocking is fine but if extra large best to consult (ex: 75″, 85, 100″ +)

The TV is fit inside the frame system. The TV can be accessed if you take off the wall—unless you want an articulating arm.
