These bathroom mirrors incorporate 2 x 13W T5 fluorescent striplights to provide ideal illumination in bathrooms for shaving, applying make-up and other personal hygiene tasks where good levels of illumination are required.
The basic version simply provides illumination and a shaver socket incorporating a dual voltage rated shaver socket suitable for 110V or 230V shavers. The socket is hidden along one side and features a cover flap to hide the shaver socket when not in use.
The shaver socket is restricted to 20VA loading by a safety isolating transformer with thermal protection fusing. You may use electric toothbrushes with a rating of no more than 20VA as well as shavers. However, you cannot operate hair driers or other high loads because the thermal protection fuse will operate to switch the appliance off. It will automatically re-connect after a delay during which the transformer cools down. This is a requirement of the UK IEE Wiring regulations 17th Edition for bathroom installations.
The illuminated mirror also available with a built-in demister pad to stop the mirror fogging up in steamy conditions. The demister is switched on when the light is illuminated and this feature is an added bonus to users.
