Mounting LED mirrors and recessing the mirrors.
For recessed mounting, we suggest at least 1" of clearance around the edges to allow the mirror to be installed or removed from the mounting frame. As usual, they must be installed according to local code restrictions.
Verify 1" clearance around the mirror NOT the mounting base. If the cutout is made 1" from the base, the mirror won't go on the base.
See attached PDF for mounting.
