Smoker's Fire Retardant Apron
Suitable for wheelchair and non-wheelchair users.
The Fire Retardant Smoker’s Apron doesn’t simply protect the clothing from dropped cigarettes, it is cleverly designed to catch dropped lights and cigarettes and stop them from rolling off onto seating or dropping down onto the floor, furniture or into footwear.
This uses a top quality Proban treated cotton fabric which meets stringent EU Fire Retardancy standards - in fact it's the same FR fabric used for items of clothing worn on the North Sea oil rigs!
This apron is made from a quality Fire Retardant Proban treated cotton fabric tested to EU standard ISO11611 2007 and EN ISO11612 2008. The fabric will not flare or melt and will protect clothing from dropped lights. In the event of a lit cigarette or match being dropped the wearer should not permit it to lie on the apron for longer than a few seconds, which is adequate time to pick it up without causing damage.
The apron comes up to throat level and when put on properly this will stop dropped lights from going down between apron and wearer. But the most ingenious part of the design is the wired upstand which surrounds the lap of the apron and catches the dropped lit cigarettes or matches, so that they do not roll as described above.
The unique design has an adjustable wired upstand which catches dropped cigarettes within arm’s reach so that they can be picked up before damage is caused. Permitting a lit match or cigarette to lie on the apron for a prolonged length of time will damage the apron, as will the deliberate pressing of a lit cigarette against the fabric to test it.
The fabric is a high-quality fire-retardant material and performs exceptionally well under normal use. Under no circumstances will the manufacturer or the supplier be responsible for damage caused, either deliberately or by misuse.
Care instructions: The apron may be hand washed using a reputable clothing detergent, wrung well and hung to drip dry. Soap products must not be used as this will remove the fire-retardant qualities. It may then be ironed. Trying to machine wash or spin dry the apron may damage the wiring which supports the upstand.
