1/4" Thick Tempered See-Through Mirror Backing
Upgradable Option on all doors:
1/4" thick one-way mirror is an upgradable option exclusive to Hide-A-Way Doors and available on all doors, bookcases & mirror doors.
One-way mirror glass is tempered and super strong, does not shatter
1/4" Tempered mirror adds a considerable amount of weight, 75-100 lbs depending on size.
Lead Time Needed: This is a custom ordered feature that adds 7 to 14 days to all orders including rush orders. Rush order guarantees start when the glass is received.
Pricing: Because each glass has to be custom made for your door and tempered, see-though mirror option adds a considerable amount to the cost of your door, roughly $400-$600 depending on type and size of your door.
How does it work?
During manufacturing, a very thin sheet of metal is applied to the glass, so thin it is almost transparent; one side of the sheet has reflecting properties
In order for the one-way mirror glass to work properly, the
secret side of the door has to remain dark, or dimmer. See-
through mirror works best when the reflecting side of the glass is brightly lit.

Using your trim on our doors
When designing the Hide-A-Way Door we had to take into account the amount of space needed for the bookcase to be able to swing within the opening and how the bookcase door shuts on the back of the case molding trim. The doors were specifically designed with our trim boards in mind.
The question, "Can we use our trim on your doors" comes up frequently. The answer is that we simply do not know. There are so many different types of trim, sizes, and thicknesses that it is a nearly impossible question to answer. When a customer is interested in using their own trim, we ask them to place a note in the customer comment section of the order form that reads, "Please leave trim unattached." We will take our trim and cust it to size and ship it to you without attaching it to your door, that way if you try your trim and it doesn't work with our door you can at least use our trim.
