    Default arena mirrors, will these work?

    I have found a great deal on some mirrors. They are 36X44 and 1/4" thick. I was going to have them installed two high along my short side (ie; 6ft high).

    Are those thick enough to not result in fun house mirrors? I know I will have seams where the two are stacked above each other but it is better than nothing!

    I use mirrored closet doors available at Home Depot. Like these:

    It won't show the price, but it was less than $300 for the two doors. I just hang them from the track that comes with them. They work well enough and are easily replaceable. Even if they get broken, they don't shatter, they fragment but typically the pieces of "glass" are stuck to the backing, so they don't go all over the arena.

    Liz, these are the mirrors I decided to use in the US. At our Home Depot they are called TRUporte mirror doors, 72 x 80, and are $107!

    Can anyone post a link to pictures of how these mirrors work in an arena? I am not sure if it is Friday and my brain isn't functioning, but I am having a hard time visualizing how these would look.
