SIB 2006, ''Scenographical exhibition'' An example of a ZSK - Ultralight Mirror composed by five panels 130 cm wide and 600 cm long fixed among themselves side by side.When lighted on the front, the ZSK - Ultralight Mirrors are endowed with good mirroring properties ...
... while a back-lighting creates transparency effects less accented than those of the ZSM - Magic Mirror backdrops.The frameworks, when a ZSK - Ultralight Mirrors wall is back-lighted, are in complete evidence, and this is a big difference in comparison to the backdrops ZSM - Magic Mirror.
In the case showed by these pictures, the total weight of the ZSK - Ultralight Mirror, limited to 65 kg, allowed to suspend with easyness a mirroring surface of around 40 m².
Opéra Comédie, ''Orfeo ed Euridice'' Two large glass walls have been set to form a 90° angle on the stage of the Opéra Comédie.The walls, 11 m wide that on the left and 9 m wide that on the right and 8 m high ...
... quote the construction technique made ​​famous by the Crystal Palace, with an iron frame and the glasses actually made ​​with 40 mirror / transparent panels 1 m wide and 4 m high made ​​with the scenographic technique of the ZSK - Ultralight Mirror.
Very light, safe and with a great effect, the ZSK - Ultralight Mirrors are glassless mirrors that use for the reflection of the light a really thin film (QSK - Retrafilm) that is stretched on custom aluminium frames.
On stage, they are usually used placing side by side more panels up to form whole mirroring walls or ceilings.
Those mirroring walls are normally not used for transparency effects because their frames are perfectly visible in transparency.
For transparency effects with big surfaces the backdrops ZSM - Magic Mirror are more frequently used.
