When building walls or columns, wooden blocks should be buried inside the wall, with a horizontal direction equal to the width of the mirror and a rigid direction equal to the height of the mirror. The large-area reflector device should also be interlayered at 500mm intervals in both the horizontal and rigid directions. This wall should be plastered. According to different construction positions, the plastering surface should be made of hot asphalt or asphalt felt. Felt can also be sandwiched between wooden lining and glass. The main purpose of these practices is to prevent the deformation of the wood lining due to moisture, prevent the coating from falling off due to moisture, and prevent the mirror from losing its luster.

2. Longitudinal Reinforcement

Fix 40 with iron nails × 40mm or 50 × A 50mm small wooden square bar is nailed to the wooden brick. The small mirrors of this device mostly have bidirectional ribs, while the large mirrors can have unidirectional ribs. Horizontal, flat, firm, and straight for easy lining and fixing of mirrors. Therefore, when erecting the pole, a vertical horizontal line should be hung. Before installation, check if the moisture-proof layer is ready. After the column is firmly nailed, check the straightness with a ruler.

3. Nail Lining Board

The backing plate is a 15mm thick plate or a 5mm thick plywood, fastened with small nails and wall reinforcement, and the nail head is nailed into the plate. The size of the inner liner can be greater than the distance size of the vertical rod, which can reduce the selection process and improve the construction speed. The outer surface of the inner liner should be flat, clean, and free from warping or peeling. The gap between the plates should be at the vertical ribs.

Firstly, place the mirror on a table or ground, measure the size according to the drilling position, mark the drilling point with a plastic pen, or drill a hole with glass, and then rinse the part to be drilled with water. The diameter of the drill bit should be greater than the diameter of the screw. When drilling, the mirror of water until it is completely drilled. Reduce force when drilling through.
