Smoking Shelters and Outdoor Shelters
123v Plc produce a range of high quality smoking shelter designs, tailored to provide durable outdoor cover. Since the introduction of the Smoke-free (Premises and Enforcement) Regulations 2006, the ejection of smokers out of office and factory buildings has seen a new requirement for providing shelters in these outdoor designated smoking areas. As a result of this legislation, the use of smoking shelters, canopies and other outside shelters has become more prevalent among licensed public premises.
At 123v we provide an integrated solution for your organisation by creating a safe, designated smoking area for your staff and customers. As one of the UK’s leading suppliers of open-ended structures, we design and manufacture bespoke products which are crafted to suit existing property aesthetics.
In the recreational sense, many pubs and clubs have found it prudent to add a sheltered smoking area for the use of patrons. A smoking canopy offers shelter whilst maintaining an outdoor environment, encouraging smokers to congregate in a single location. Our smoking shelters are completely maintenance-free and are covered by a 10 year guarantee – like all the 123v range of carport and canopy products. In addition to providing a social area for people to smoke, our outdoor shelters and covered walkways also offer effective protection from the weather.
Our high quality shelters are fully compliant with UK legislation and come in a wide selection of layouts including cantilever, traditional or freestanding. Choice of the smoking shelter designs simply depends on the nature of the area designated as the smoking zone. In the case of pubs, you can opt for a cantilever design on the side of the building, thus preventing the need for posts and additional obstructions, if space is at a premium. Traditional canopies, on the other hand, offer greater coverage if required with freestanding suitable if set away from the existing premises.
Once you contact us, our Regional Surveyors will come and check out your requirements, measure everything up and give you an exact quote – with no surprises. To ensure minimum impact on your work and productivity, all our installations are scheduled to suit your business hours. Working in a safe and responsible manner is an integral part of what we do, particularly if members of the public can be expected to be around the installation site. For maximum safety, we also independently test and scrutinise the engineering concepts for all new products. As such, our various custom canopies, smoking shelters, covered walkways, carports and verandas are fit for purpose and built to last.
