Faced with the wide choice of outdoor ashtrays available from the different brands, the best known of which are Rossignol
with in particular the Probax range, it is important to make the right choice to efficiently collect waste and cigarettes.
Reminder of the legal framework for ashtrays and smoking areas
Decree 2006-1386 of November 15, 2006, relating to the fight against tobacco in collective use places, there is now a legal framework concerning the equipment and layout of smoking areas. • Since February 1, 2007, the ban on smoking is generalized to closed and covered places that welcome the public or constitute places
of work: companies, administrations, schools, health establishment, office
• Since January 1, 2008, this ban extends to so-called “convivial” places: cafes, hotels, restaurants, tobacco bars, casinos and nightclubs.
• Fine: 68 € for the offending smoker (then 180 € beyond 45 days)
€ 135 for the offending site manager (€ 375 beyond 45 days).
Wall-mounted or free-standing ashtray
The first parameter consists in the choice of the type of installation: wall or on foot. Standing ashtrays are more suited to high-traffic areas and therefore autonomy and liters of capacity are sought after.
Of course, their other strong point is that they can be moved. Some models also combine two functions: trash can and ashtray (ash + cigarettes). Wall ashtrays are less bulky but generally have a lower autonomy unlike "urban" cylindrical ashtrays, however it is also possible here to combine the two functions of basket and ashtray. Ultimately, the decision of the material to be taken will be made.
The choice of materials is a parameter in the context of weather resistance, the notion of vandalism but also the desired design if the frame in which the ashtray must be placed is important.
We therefore offer ashtrays in different materials and colors: steel, stainless steel, black base, etc.
Emptying the ashtray
The mode of emptying the tank of the external ashtray varies from one model to another. In addition to the price, the closing mode with or without locking is a criterion to be taken into account at the time of purchase.
