The mirror that can’t be smashed

Maskinbladet - The mirror that can't be smashed

At Spafax they show a mirror that can’t be smashed. Should this happen, the mirror comes with a 10-year guarantee.


Agritechnica: Some news at a big fair like Agritechnica takes a bit of searching, and you might not notice it at first glance. This is often the case in the System & Components halls at Agritechnica, where there are so many components for the industry that it can be hard to keep track.

Other innovations, such as John Deere’s new X9 combine harvester, Steyr’s new concept tractor or Fendt’s new telehandler, are much easier to spot.

And the latter was indeed the case at Spafax’s stand at Agritechnica in the System & Components halls, where Holger Dolny goes and smashes a tractor mirror with a hammer – without the mirror getting damaged.

The secret is Polycarbonate, which the material in the glass is made of. It’s something we’ve invented and actually produced for 10 years

He says they don’t really supply the technology to the agricultural industry, but have a pretty good grip on the forklift industry and even air gardens and the military.

This mirror has been shot at with a machine gun, and as you can see, the mirror is not shattered, says Holger Dolny and shows a mirror with three holes in it, after the bullets from the machine gun – and the rest of the mirror is completely intact.

10-year warranty

Spafax believes in their products so much that they offer a 10-year warranty on all mirrors.

“They are simply impossible to break, and the best way we can show our customers that is by offering a wild warranty solution” says Andrew Burnell, Managing Director of Spafex in the UK, where the company is based.

“We really want to get into the agricultural machinery business and show our solutions, as we are confident that we have mirrors that can withstand the relatively harsh conditions that tractors sometimes find themselves in”

He also points out that it usually costs a fine to be stopped with a broken mirror on the road.
