ClearView TV Mirrors Specialty displays that can appear and disappear at the touch of a button always play well with homeowners who might want a hidden A/V solution or some wow factor. ClearView was showing its Hidden Reflections TV mirrors, featuring LCD depth of only 1 inch, that answer both requests — in a custom presentation that can address displays from 7 to 80 inches, hundreds of designer styles and wood finishes to frame the mirror, 10 standard color or custom painted finishes, and edge options that include framed, sandblasted, flat polished, rounded corner, pencil polish and beveled. Also, electronic touches can incorporate loudspeakers, lights, de-fogger, wall controller and IR light indicator. The company also showed its Grand Screen and Bath Series TV Mirrors lines. “We do a lot of custom work, we just need the size glass and the size TV,” says ClearView accounts specialist Cindy Petersen, who notes the company’s products work well in commercial markets such as hospitality and restaurants. “Usually if people are building a home, they don’t necessarily go with our stock or standard. Because they’re building a home they tell us this is the size glass we want, this is the size TV we want; sometimes they want two TVs in a mirror above the vanities; sometimes they’ll put a TV in the middle mirror with matching mirrors on each side. … We don’t sell directly to the consumer, we sell to dealers, and then we work with the architect or designer, the mill worker, whatever’s required.”Back to article
