Healthcare smoking shelters

Protect smokers from the elements all-year round by installing a smoking canopy. Widely used by hospitals, hospital smoking shelters can be installed near or away from surrounding buildings.

These systems can be manufactured in any size to accommodate small and large groups of smokers at any one time.

What’s more, they’re just as effective at providing shelter from wintry weather as they are the sun’s harmful UV rays, making them a worthwhile investment that’s highly effective in all seasons. While our colour-matching service means they can blend in seamlessly to the surrounding environment.

Most hospitals find that installing a smoking canopy prevents smokers from congregating around doorways and main entrances, while others also use the shelters as staff meeting points or communal break areas.

They’re a hugely effective way of making:

  • More use of your underused outdoor space
  • People feel welcome by providing them with a dedicated smoking zone they can use come wind, rain or shine

Benefits of smoking shelters

Our hospital smoking shelters can be installed in most areas, large or small, thanks to our bespoke design, manufacturing and installation service. And this, when coupled with our industry-leading site-specific calculations, gives you peace of mind that your smoking shelter is engineered for purpose and built to last.

Available as freestanding or wall-mounted structures, our smoking canopies can be designed to match your branding and existing buildings. What’s more, the Melinex gel-coated roof also provides protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays too.

Our wall-mounted smoking shelters are safely and securely installed to the surrounding walls, instantly opening up the amount of available space below. While our freestanding smoking shelters can be installed virtually anywhere, space-permitting, as they aren’t attached to other buildings.


Hospital smoking shelters can be installed near or away from existing buildings, protecting smokers from the elements all-year round. Here are some of the hospital smoking canopies we’ve manufactured.
