Handyman Wirral - Huge Mirror Installation

Hi to All,
Another busy week and new challenges....
During this week I have started some work in a lovely period home in Childer Thornton, and as part of some ongoing work - was the installation of this enormous mirror that is over six feet tall and five feet wide, weighing in excess of 80kg.

The challenge was to safely mount it to the half landing of this rather grand staircase.

Fixings provided with the mirror where not suitable and a plan was formed together with the home owners to provide a long lasting safe solution to keep the mirror in place.

After looking at a selection of hardware that the home owners had made available to me for the works, I was concerned that this heavy and bulky item would be suspended by chains and may move around when polished and cleaned.

The solution was a pair of hand made, hardwood cleats - full width to the top and bottom of the surround securing it to the wall with absolutely no play or movement at all.

Making the French Cleats was the easy bit... Lifting it into position halfway up a stairwell was the real challenge ! but we did it and the results I think you would agree are stunning.
