Buildings: 10 Mistakes that Most People Make

Guidelines for the Construction of Smoking Shelters

Not finding a place to smoke is one thing that gives most smokers a very hard time. To smoke, these people will do even the unimaginable. The complexity of this issue is because smoking in the presence of the public is not allowed as the people may not be smokers or could be adversely affected by the smoke. This is the reason that has led to setting apart of designated smoking zones in most companies and public places. If the smoking zone is far or in adverse weather conditions, it may be impossible to make use of the smoking zones. A smoker will, however, not need to go into too much trouble with the aid of a smoking shelter.

The structure constructed to shied people when they are smoking is called a smoking shelter. Provision of privacy to the smokers as well as protecting the non-smokers are the main reasons for using a smoking shelter. A roof and side walls or shields will be found on the structure. With the two, the fear of the smoke being spread to other people by wind or one being rained on is eliminated. When buying one, you may need to know one or two things.

The legislation that governs the construction of smoking shelters situates that the smoking shelter should be enclosed. What this means that apart from the entrance, the shelter should not have any other opening in the name of a window. The space between the top of the walls and the roof is the only other opening apart from the entrance that should be on the structure. With this design, smoke will only be able to move up and away from other people. Ensure that when you install one or whoever that is installing it for you adhere strictly to his rule.

Finding a smoker spending a big load of time in a smoking shelter is very unlikely. For this reason, most of them do not have seats. The shelters are for the people to come in and smoke while standing and then leave. But seats may be required for that shelter you have in your home or at work where smokers spend their breaks. When you make an order for the shelter, always remember to specify if or not you need to have seats on them. Remember, however, that seats will take up space are not ideal for shelters for use by many people.

The smoking shelter’s construction material is the last thing you need to consider. These shelters can be made using a wide range of materials. Materials commonly used to make these shelters are metal, glass, and wood The material you choose should be able to resist strong wind, corrosion and the risk of catching fire.
