Manufacturer of Cigarette Receptacles Since 1947, Glaro Inc., Announces Tips To Help Facility Managers Find The Best Quality Smoker’s Posts On The Market

Recognized as the original manufacturer of the Smoker’s Post, Glaro Incorporated, based in New York, has innovated cigarette receptacle product lines since 1947. The Deluxe Smoker’s Post and Value-Max Smoker’s Post lines, the first of their kind, have been used in facilities nationwide. Now, as part of an important ‘Service Announcement’ to Facilities Managers and Glaro Dealers, the manufacturer announces quality standards to educate dealers and customers who are interested in purchasing cigarette disposal equipment that is a cut above the rest.
Design Standards
Smoking receptacles should meet high design standards. Glaro Inc. has incorporated this concept by offering a neat, streamlined appearance. Glaro’s wide selection of satin and powder coat finishes is unrivaled by any other manufacturer because both lines are offered in Satin Aluminum, Satin Brass and 29 textured and smooth powder coat finishes. Cigarette logos are manually silk-screened and baked onto each aluminum tube. Even the most discerning tastes of architects and designers will be satisfied with this selection, according to Glaro Inc. executives.
Materials & Construction Standards
Glaro Inc. advises purchasing high capacity Smoker’s Posts that are engineered utilizing solid aluminum weatherproof tubes consisting of heavy duty 1/8th inch or 1/16th inch thick walls. “Some manufacturers may use thinner tubes or non-aluminum materials that make them less durable. By contrast, a 1/8th inch aluminum tube is virtually indestructible and it is the strongest in the market,” says Executive Vice President Robert Betensky. “A 1/16th inch aluminum tube is an excellent alternative where cost savings is important.” Look-alike steel smoking receptacles tend to rust before their expected lifespan, and plastic units can warp, crack, burn and melt. “Fireproof, weatherproof and rust proof solid aluminum is a much better choice,” says Plant Manager Robert Glass.
Stability Standards
Glaro Inc. suggests using cigarette butt receptacles with heavily weighted bases because they provide maximum stability and added security. In ground and surface mount floor models also provide permanence but require light installation. All of these options provide the ultimate in cigarette and ash disposal in public spaces and high traffic areas. Glaro Inc. has also incorporated specialized security features in their wall mounted models to help prevent theft. All of these models come standard with a concealed offset keyhole mounting to a solid aluminum wall bracket. Additional security cables are available that attach the cap to the body and the body to the wall bracket. This ensures that parts will not go missing.
Glaro Inc. is the only company offering a complete coordinated collection of designer smoking receptacles including wall mounted, tabletop, portable floor standing and permanently floor mounted models. For more information, visit or call (888) 234-1050.
