Care & Maintenance

―  Avoid moving or sliding hard edged objects across all Mirrl surfaces.
―  Avoid harsh chemicals such as; Acetone, Ethanol, drain cleaners and paint removers, as these will damage the material.
―  Some cleaning products contain acids, such as methyl chloride or acetone. Check the manufacturer’s label as these should not be used on Mirrl surfaces. Should one of these products come into contact with the surface, you should rinse the affected area immediately with soapy water to prevent any damage or discolouring taking place.

Cleaning & Removal of Fine Scratches

You will have specified your Mirrl surface in one of the three finish options mentioned below. Depending on the finish, you should follow the correct cleaning and renewal guidance.

Finish Cleaning Renewal

Matt

For most dirt and stains use a sort cloth with warm soapy water. For more stubborn dirt or stains use a white Scotch-Brite® pad and a non-abrasive cleaner.

To remove small scratches in the surface, sand lightly with 280 grit paper and then clean with an abrasive cleanser and a white Scotch-Brite® pad.

Satin

For most dirt and stains use a sort cloth with warm soapy water. For more stubborn dirt or stains use a white Scotch-Brite® pad and a non-abrasive cleaner.

To remove small scratches in the surface, sand lightly with 400 grit paper and then clean with a non-abrasive cleanser and a white Scotch-Brite® pad. Finish with a solid surface cleaner and protector.

Gloss

For most dirt and stains use a sort cloth with warm soapy water. For more stubborn dirt or stains use a white Scotch-Brite® pad and a non-abrasive cleaner.

To remove small scratches in the surface, sand lightly with 800 grit paper The surface must then be machine polished back to its original finish with a rotary polisher have access to this equipment, you should contact your original fabricator.

Chipping and Deep Scratches

If your Mirrl surface becomes chipped or deeply scratched through an accident it can be repaired with a colour matched resin. This work is best carried out by a professional, you should contact us to discuss this option if required.

If you notice that your Mirrl surface is looking blotchy this will likely be caused by leaving hard water to dry on the surface which can leave a trace of minerals. To avoid this always dry your surfaces after cleaning and to keep them looking at their best use a solid surface cleaner / protector such as Eagle Solid Surface Cleaner®.

At Eskimo we’re known for our stunning finishes and our radiators are often referred to as pieces of functional art or art radiators, because our hidden valve mechanism allows a finish to hang uninterrupted.

So we thought, how about we take that nice reference as our first point of design? But even with some of our most exciting finishes i.e Gong, Rusty or Supermirror, their presence can still be quiet, blending beautifully with the interior styling cues that surround the radiators.

So we thought, why don’t we get a little loud on this occasion? The danger with designing a technologically robust radiator as a ‘piece of art’ though, is that you could take this literally and create something terribly tacky, diluting the point of innovation and, importantly, ending up with something that is just a little short of originality.

Development

Mirrl’s origins are in Japan. Co-founder Simon Harlow lived and worked there over fifteen years ago and during that period he came across heirloom objects decorated with an exquisite pattern. He began to look into the origins of the decorative style and discovered it was made using an increasingly rare six hundred year old technique called Tsugaru Nuri. Having seen what the Japanese laquer artists could achieve, he started to try out different techniques back home in Glasgow using resin and colour. After considerable experimentation he created the surface pattern, Mirrl. A solid surface material, hand crafted and using unique organic patterns with multiple colourways. Different usages, techniques and thicknesses have been developed over time to arrive at the optimum material. With great care and using local skills and talents Mirrl’s workshop is a hub of movement, sound and colour. The skilled process involves producing multiple patterned layers of tinted resin in different tones or colours on to birch plywood. It takes time, patience and skill to make each unique piece.

Price

POP is designed & created as a piece of heated ART. The time taken and the skill involved equates to a higher price tag, as expected with beautiful interior pieces. Various sizes and orientations such as squares can be produced for you on a 10 week timeline. Prices on request.
