Many states are beginning to ban and have banned smoking in public areas such as restaurant, bars, hotels and reception halls.
The ban of smoking in public areas can still be safeguarded by introducing smoking shelters which can be used for smoking while keeping rest of the environment smoke free.
If you are a smoker then the only place where you can entertain your smoking pleasure is a smoking shelter which is located either outside the bars, restaurants, and shopping malls etc, built in the open air and in the form of a semi-closed smoking shelter.
Marygrove Awning in Livonia, Michigan, can create a custom smoking shelter that fits the needs of your employees or customers.
You can pick any form of smoking shelters as there are an abundance of styles and designs available.
They are constructed with top quality material and absolutely no maintenance.
The biggest advantage of smoking shelters is their structure.
The shelter has a roof top to protect against any climatic conditions, with one side completely open and a decent seating arrangement along with trash bins to throw smoking litter.
These shelters are mostly standing shelters where you visit for a minute or two, smoke cigarettes and crush the cigarette butts inside the trash bins or vertical trash columns and leave.
Also available are medium to big sized smoking shelters with space available for people sitting and chatting for a longer time.
"Beginning May 1, Michigan state law prohibits smoking in public places such as restaurants, bars and hotels or other places that serve food or beverages.
The new state law fines businesses where customers are caught smoking. Individuals and business owners are subject to a $100 fine for the first offense and $500 for subsequent offenses.
Restaurants or bars could set up an area outdoors, not attached to the facility, where people could smoke as long as there is no service in the area and patrons don't consume any food or drink there. Andy Deloney, spokesman for the Michigan Restaurant Association, which has more than 4,500 restaurant and tavern members, said the association has been fielding "tons of calls and inquiries from restaurants and tavern owners who want to continue" to offer a place for their smoking customers to light up."
