Description

The Smoking Protector is designed to help patients who may drop a cigarette while smoking. The patient will still need close observation as they may drop the cigarette on the floor or beside their hip while sitting in a chair. Even if the cigarette does fall onto the Protector it could roll off the lap and down next to the patient’s legs and the side of the chair. If a cigarette does remain on the patient’s lap, the high temperature, 400°C / 725°F.* on the side and 580°C1076°F.* in the middle of the burning cigarette, may heat up any clothing the patient is wearing under the Protector. The Protector may be stained from nicotine or scorched from the heat of the burning cigarette if it is not quickly removed within a few seconds.

Wider Version: This is like the standard Smoking Protector, but about 40cm / 16″wider. There is extra material sewn onto each side of the Protector. The sides will fold over the arms of a chair to prevent a cigarette falling between the chair’s cushions and arms, or next to the person’s leg. If you would like us to add the side pieces to an existing Smoking Protector, please return the Protector to us, making sure it is washed before returning.

To Use: Simply fasten the strap behind the neck and tie the side tape around the person’s back with a simple bow that will be easy to undo. The Smoking Protector is worn like an apron.

These include shirts, pants, coveralls, jackets, bib overalls, arc flash suits for maintenance & electrical workers and for workers in electric utilities, oil, gas, petrochemical, chemical and ferrous metal industries.

Wash up to 80°C (176°F). Air or tumble dry on a cool setting, ensuring the drum is cool. Ensure the product is dry before using or storing.

Do not rely on the Smoking Protector to prevent fires. Smoking should only be allowed outdoors. Always keep smoking patients under close observation in case they drop the cigarette.

Do not restrain patients while they are smoking. If they do drop a cigarette between their hip and the side of the chair, it may be necessary to quickly stand them up to retrieve the cigarette.

If the burning tip of a cigarette is held against the Smoking Protector it will burn a hole in the material. We have had reports of some patients deliberately doing this, just to see if the Protectors will catch fire. The Protectors did not catch fire but there is a possibility of setting fire to the clothes worn under the Protector. We repeat our warning that patients must be supervised when smoking.
