Product Warranty and Information
Kimball & Young Mirrors are warranted free from defects in
material and workmanship. All metal finishes and reflective
materials are fully warranted for three years.
The life of the finish will be best cared for,
especially in areas of high heat and moisture, by keeping all
surfaces clean and dry. Cleaning should be done with a non-abrasive
cleaner and soft polishing cloth.
The warranty does not cover damages resulting
from an accident after purchase, misuse, abuse, lack of reasonable
care, or loss of parts. Claims for damage occurring during shipment
should be made to the freight carrier. For lighted mirrors, this
warranty does not cover the original light bulb beyond the "normal"
lifetime of the bulb, or replacement bulbs.
How does a mirror magnify?
Magnification in traditional "bent-glass"
mirrors is a product of the curvature of the bend and the diameter
of the glass. Greater curvature produces greater magnification. As
the curvature increases, the possibility of distortion increases,
especially as the diameter of the glass also increases. Generally
speaking, it is for this reason that most larger diameter mirrors
have less magnification than the smaller diameter styles.
