Description

The Smoking Protector is designed to help prevent burns if a person drops a cigarette while smoking.

The person will still need constant observation. Ensure that a cigarette is not dropped on the floor. Also ensure it is not dropped beside their hip while sitting. Even if the cigarette does fall onto the Protector it could roll off the lap, then down next to the patient’s legs and the side of the chair. If a cigarette does remain on the patient’s lap, the temperature may be 400°C / 725°F* on the side and 580°C / 1076°F* in the middle of the burning cigarette. This may heat up any clothing the person is wearing under the Smoking Protector. Nicotine or scorch marks may appear if the burning cigarette is not quickly removed within a few seconds.

 

Standard or Wide Widths

The standard size width does not cover the arms of the chair. The wider width does, and is about 40cm / 16″ wider. The sides will fold over the arms of a chair, and this will prevent a cigarette falling between the seat and the arm of the chair, or next to the person’s leg.

 

To Use

Wear the Smoking Protector like an apron. Fasten the strap behind the neck, then tie the side tape around the person’s back. Tie with a bow that will be easy to undo.

 

The Material

A variety of garments use this Flame Retardant material from the USA in high risk industries. 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.
