mirror panel needed with anti mist backing

hi, i've got a space above the bathroom boxing section which also has a shaver socket that i've removed the front of. i want to put in this space a large mirror and preferably an anti misting heating pad behind, which i can wire from the shaver socket. is this possible ? and where would i look for the mirror and heating pad? it needs to be around 1.2 m wide square approx mayber higher than it is wide.

Contact these people http://www.westwardplastics.co.uk/s_mirror.php for help on this type thing. They make acrylic mirrors which are virtually condensation free. You save money on the electrical running costs as well as get a mirror that will last for years and years through the rigors of a bathroom environment.
They work great for security mirrors as well, but that's a different story. :-)

will have to decide on the exact size... just one thing, with an acrylic mirror do you get a clear reflection? i'm sure i've seen similar type mirrors where the image looks a bit distorted and / or the film has damaged

The image is clear enough for security mirrors. I like them because they are good in exposed areas like carparks Etc. And they stand a lot of knocks and bumps. The metal one are heavy and can go a bit rusty after a while if left outside. The Acrylic ones seems to stand the test of time without any distortion.
Give the guys a call or e-mail to get their technical ins and outs.

acrylic deteriorates too much to look even half ok in a house. At first, yes. Any glass supplier will do you a mirror to your spec.

Use with a piece of mirror glass cut to size by your local glass place.
Others can advise on the wiring.

Generally a heated mirror is wired to the bathroom light, so it is not on all the time, so unless you can arrange the old shaver socket wiring to connect this way, you may end up wasting a lot of power on this heater if it is on all the time!

i doubt the shaver socket has wiring linked to the light switch, in fact im pretty sure it doesnt. IIRC there are 3 reds and 3 black wires behind it.
toby you are right about it costing a lot if always on.
seeing as ive got a good fan (vent axia solo plus) maybe condensation wont be such a problem.
any more opinions on whether acryllic mirror is clear enough for a bathroom? it will be for shaving, washing face, doing hair etc. its not likely to get knocked or anything.
cheers guys, will check back before i go ahead either way.
