Very light, safe and giving a great effect, the ZSK - Ultralight Mirrors are glassless mirrors which 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.
