Hookah Bar Design Complications
What does the law say?
The smokefree legislation for England (1997) makes it a criminal offence to allow
smoking, which includes shisha, in virtually all enclosed public places and all
workspaces. Indoor workplace smoking is a criminal offence and anyone wanting to
smoke has to go outside in an open area to smoke.
What is ‘substantially enclosed’?
Areas you provide for use by smokers with a ceiling or roof but have an opening in the
walls, which is less than half the total area of the walls. The area of the opening does
not include doors, windows or any other fittings that can be opened or shut. Temporary
awnings, umbrellas, canopies, shutters, doors or windows are assumed closed or fully
extended when calculating the 50 per cent rule.
What is ‘enclosed’?
Areas you provide for use by smokers with a ceiling or roof and (except for doors,
windows or passageways) are wholly enclosed either on a permanent or temporary
basis. Shelters too close to other structures may be considered enclosed.
