Now that smokers have to go outside to indulge their habit, more and more pubs, bars and restaurants are receiving complaints from other customers, passers-by and neighbours about the mess of fag ends left on the ground. It’s all too easy to blame the smoker but proprietors need to take responsibility too, by providing adequate disposal facilities to sort the problem.
The new Probbax wall-mounted ashtrays from Foodservice Equipment Marketing (FEM) are elegant, weather-resistant solutions for all smokers’ areas. They provide a neat and tidy, permanent disposal system for cigarette butts. Their 100% rust free construction ensures that they will remain looking good year in, year out and give many years of service.
Easily sited on any convenient wall, they are quick and simple to empty, clean and maintain. Their powder-coated, galvanised steel body is resistant to stain and weathering while the galvanised inside liner can be easily accessed for emptying via the hinged front. Integral rainwater drain holes keep the waste in the inner liner dry.
High resistance, stainless steel snuff plates extinguish cigarettes safely before they are dropped into the waste compartment while a simple key locking-system ensures the ashtray cannot be accidentally emptied.
FEM supplies two versions of the Probbax wall-mounted ashtrays. The AT-0222-DGRY with a 3 litre or 450 butt capacity and the AT-0202-DGRY with a 1.5 litre, 150 butt capacity. Both versions have a pre-printed cigarette symbol clearly displayed on the front and include a wall-mounting kit. The ashtrays have list prices from just £34.90 ex VAT.
