5312P 12Volt Demister Niche Package
The Thermomirorr EZ 12 Volt Mirror Demister is designed to provide a low voltage mirror defogger solution to go in wet areas. The 12v demister is typically used in a shower niche with a mirror insert to allow for shaving in the shower. The mirror demister ensures the mirror remains fog-free and is low voltage meaning it is safe to be used in this application.
Typically a mirror fogs up due to the difference in temperature of the room and the temperature in the bathroom. The bathroom is warm from the shower or bath whilst the mirror is cold and the difference in temperature causes it to fog up. The mirror defogger warms the mirror to reduce the difference in temperature ensuring a steam free mirror in the bathroom.
The 5312P Thermomirror 12Volt Niche Package - Includes 5312 Thermomirror, 400x400mm Mirror, 600x400mm Econoboard, 12Volt Transformer, Mirror Mate Adhesive or it can be purchased as a demister only.
How do I select the correct Thermomirror size?
When selecting a demister, you need to ensure that it is smaller than the size of your mirror. In a glue-to-wall application it is important there is a minimum of 100mm all around the demister to allow for adhesion between the mirror and the wall. In a screw-to-wall application, the demister needs to be small enough to ensure that it is out of the way of the screws or mounting brackets. Remember the demister only needs to be where you mainly look and the heat will spread slightly.
How do I operate my demister?
The demister can be connected to the lighting circuit in your bathroom, so it operates when your lights are on. Alternatively, it can be connected to a movement sensor located in the bathroom which can also be connected to your lights.
Can I install a demister on a cabinet door?
We do not recommend the installation of a demister on a cabinet door due to difficulty with wiring and issues of effectiveness in this application. Typically, demisters would be installed on a wall and hardwired through that wall to the power supply, however if it was installed on a cabinet door, it would be difficult to wire up the demister in this way or to get power to the point where it is needed, as the cables will need to have slack and will be exposed. If the demister was on the back of the cabinet door and the mirror on the front, this would also not be very effective as the demister would struggle to heat through the thickness of the cabinet door and demist the mirror.
