The Smokers Protective Apron is an inherently flame retardant apron that offers smokers excellent protection from cigarette burns. The smoking apron is designed for wheelchair users or vulnerable residents/patients and is wide enough to cover the chair’s arms, leaving no gaps for the patient or resident to burn themselves accidentally. The Smokers Protective Apron is fastened to the smoker with an adjustable neck strap to hold it safely in place but can be quickly removed if necessary to smother a fire. Made from TITAN  is a unique patented construction that combines high-performance fibres and carefully positions them within the garment to deliver a fabric that maximises comfort, thermal protection and durability. The Smokers Protective Apron softness and flexibility make them breathable, flexible, and lightweight, enabling the user to experience improved comfort while wearing it.

Do you know The temperature of a Lit Cigarette?

  • Temperature without drawing – Side of the lit portion: 400°C
  • Temperature without drawing – Middle of the lit portion: 580°C
  • The temperature during drawing – Middle of the lit portion: 700°C

The above temperatures represent the average and can be considered accurate to within 50°C

If a cigarette is not removed from the Smokers Protective Apron within a few seconds the apron may be stained by nicotine or scorched by the heat which can be up to 600°C from a cigarette. Always monitor the patient or resident if they are at risk of injury from smoking.

We also provide a full range of flameless lighters; the CIG-AT Flameless Cigarette Lighter combines a stylish powder-coated steel exterior with top range safety features. The lighter has been designed for use in any environment by pairing toughness and style. It houses the safety features needed for high-security areas in a compact and attractive shell that would not look out of place in an airport or hotel. The standard safety features of this unit include a sloped anti-ligature design, illuminated vandal-resistant push-button, anti-tamper security screws and a safety control timer function. The safety control timer function starts an automatic heating cycle when the button is pressed. Once the cycle has finished, it introduces a mandatory cooling period before starting a new cycle. When combined with the Smokers Protective Apron, an ideal solution to provide the highest level of safety and independence to residents or patients.
