Inspection Mirror

A quick guide to how an Inspection Mirror could help you!

What is an Inspection Mirror ?

inspection mirror | search mirror - portable trolley mirrorTypically it`s a portable mirror that has an arm attachment/telescopic handle and may also have a lighting source and/or wheels as part of its design.

It enables the user to safely examine concealed or difficult to reach areas either for inspection purposes or for search purposes, which is why inspection mirrors are also sometimes called search mirrors or rummage mirrors.


Where would I use an Inspection Mirror ?

Basically anywhere that`s tricky to reach but which you need to check out, an inspection mirror would be just what you`d need to help you see behind your hot water cylinder in your airing cupboard, or checking that your missing keys have not accidentally dropped down behind your sideboard!

An inspection mirror would also be an essential search aid in any situation where terrorist/criminal/clandestine immigration activity is a risk - detecting explosive devices under vehicles or searching for illegal immigrants being two examples.

These mirrors are also used in some manufacturing processes that require tooling or components to be examined when this cannot be safely/practically done by any other method.

An inspection mirror is recognised as an essential tool in the armoury of a wide range of professional users such as; Police, Security Services, Government & Embassy Security Staff, Port Officials and Border Control Staff, as well as security staff employed by commercial companies of all sizes.


Do I need a light on my inspection mirror ?

For some applications this may not be necessary, but for maximum flexibility we would suggest that you choose a mirror with an on-board light, ...after all checking the back of a dark cupboard will be tricky without one and even using an under vehicle search mirror on a bright sunny day will benefit enormously from the added light shining onto the dark search area.
