Smoking Shelters

A smoking shelter or canopy is a great way for commercial premises to provide smoking facilities for customers and employees whilst keeping their grounds clean and tidy.

Smoking Shelters and Smoking Canopies

Since the smoking ban came into force in 2007, smokers in commercial premises or workplaces have been forced to take their habit outside. Many businesses are now opting to provide smoking shelters both for their employees and customers.

All of our smoking shelters are built to comply with current smoking legislation and are ideal for commercial premises such as pubs, nightclubs, restaurants and other public venues, as well as any workplaces with smoking employees. All of our smoking canopies and shelters include the option to add heating and lighting to make them more appealing and comfortable.

We have a variety of shelters available including fully welded constructions, lean-to options and shelters with adjustable feet. We also have a range of budget options available in the form of smoking canopies which offer a cheaper alternative whilst still providing adequate protection and meeting the required legislation. These smoking canopies are ideal for areas of limited space and include a motor for retraction purposes.

A range of materials are available, with fully galvanised and powder coated frames, heavy gauge steel, Perspex sides, polycarbonate and perforated sheet steel options depending on the shelter.

Does My Premises Need A Smoking Shelter?

Does My Premises Need A Smoking Shelter?

The smoking ban came into force in 2007, and means that any enclosed or substantially enclosed area in a commercial environment must now be smoke-free. This applies to permanent structures as well as temporary ones such as tents, gazebos and marquees.

The removal of indoor smoking has pushed smokers outdoors, often leaving them gathered around entrances and gates. There is no legal requirement to offer a smoking shelter, but it is seen as a gesture of goodwill to provide a smoking area that allows customers and employees to smoke whilst protected from the elements.

The addition of even a smoking canopy can help your business premises remain tidy and uncluttered. Smokers tend to gather near to an entrance, which can allow the smell to drift indoors and put off potential customers. A designated smoking shelter gives smokers somewhere to congregate that is suitable for your business. It offers customers and patrons a smoking option, keeping them in your premises for longer, and staff are also kept warm, safe and happy.

A smoking shelter or canopy must also meet current legislation, as more than 50% of the shelters sides must be permanently open. All of our smoking shelters meet the required legislation, making it easy for you to integrate one into your premises.
