PRODUCT BLOG – Extra Strong Magnifier Sheet
Our best quality fresnel magnifying lens
This rigid magnifying sheet is 2mm thick enabling it to be held and used over the subject matter with just one hand (this one does not ‘flex’ like other fresnel lenses made from thinner material – normally PVC). It is made from optical-grade plastic and has extra thin concentric lines on the surface that improve viewing clarity, especially around the centre of the lens.
Just remind me what a fresnel lens is
Fresnel lenses are made up of hundreds of concentric grooves, etched onto a flat surface, to gather and direct light towards the centre. These grooves are easier to produce on plastic surfaces than glass ones, often over a much larger area than exists within the capability of a normal magnifying lens. Hence they are helpful when a thin, lightweight magnifier is required, perhaps to view a bigger subject or a large block of text.
The overall image quality is rarely as good as that from a conventional glass or plastic lens but in many applications a fresnel lens is a cheaper option, perfectly adequate for general low-level magnification requirements. We have had our Extra Strong Magnifier Sheet in our range since we began and the improved viewing quality from its thicker lens shows through time and again.
