Frame
2. tailor made 9TM - Metal frame
The flexion of the frame has to be imperceptible or it won't be possible to adequately stretch the mirror that will show folds and deformations of the reflected image.
The mirrors have to be stretched along the four sides in a uniform way.

Perimeter
and dimensions
of the mirror
WCS - Strap + WOC - Eyelets + WPE - Perofix 27 cm
In this case the mirror must have a size of 5 cm per each side less then the inside area of the frame to allow the correct stretching of the WPE - Perofix 27 cm.
It is needed a perimetric masking, whose dimensions have to be of 20 cm per side less than the inside area of the frame, in order to hide the creases due to the punctual tension of the elastic hooks on the eyelets.
