Outdoor tobacco smoke
In any public space, business, or workplace, there are smokers and, most likely, frequent smoking. Frequent smoking comes with several challenges that need to be dealt with, one of them being cigarette smoke spreading through the air, exposing non-smokers to secondhand smoke. Another issue is that it in many places can be difficult and time-consuming for smokers to get to a designated smoking area. When there is no easily accessible designated smoking area with proper air cleaning available, people will most likely smoke outside the nearest entrance, polluting the air in and around the entrance with tobacco smoke and unpleasant odors, and littering the ground with cigarette ends.
Outdoor tobacco smoke is a challenge that lots of different types of businesses and other spaces face, for example, transportation facilities, airports, healthcare and other care facilities, high-security facilities, production facilities, and shopping malls. In many of these types of facilities, safe designated smoking areas can be difficult to find or get to, resulting in people smoking outside the entrances instead. Without proper air cleaning, this often leads to harmful gases and particles as well as unpleasant odors from tobacco smoke spreading through the air and into the facility, exposing non-smokers to secondhand smoke. It often leads to cigarette ends littering the ground outside the entrances, further contributing to an overall negative impression of the business and an unpleasant environment for non-smokers.
