KIPPY, the new collector for cigarette ends, now puts conventional standing ashtrays in the shade. Its functionality helps provide
cleanliness in the city environment and saves on cleaning costs.
Anyone walking around a city soon notices one thing above all others: cigarette ends lying on the ground - as far as the eye can
see and the nose can smell. But the urban scene is not only marred by tabacco remains on pavements, at bus-stops, railway stations or the entrances to fairs and exhibitions.
Overflowing standing ashtrays at the entrances to company premises or close to lifts, often filled with other rubbish, make a very unattractive sight and can lead to a feeling of revulsion on the part of the observer.
But from now on there is an attractive solution to this ever-present problem, a solution which will also save on public cleaning
costs. KIPPY, "the end of every cigarette". The attractively-shaped collector with the easily-recognised KIPPY International Design
can be used both in outdoor and indoor areas. Users of these efficient collection columns include not only city administrations, exhibition companies, shopping centres and property management companies; they are now also used by restaurants, car park operators, banks and private businesses.
of the smart design container comes in two colours. Its dimensions of 140x140x730 millimetres and the fitted input pipe, shaped like a cigarette, means that Kippy immediately grabs the attention of every smoker. The pipe diameter of 19 millimetres prevents foreign objects such as paper or packaging being thrown into the container.
If KIPPY has been bolted down, then it is securely fastened and cannot be tipped over. For special ways of securing the feature see
under mounting alternatives . Further, the product is made entirely of high-grade steel, coated with plastic powder, and so is indestructible.
And KIPPY works so easily: The user throws the burning cigarette end into the pipe. The burning tobacco end is then extinguished
inside the container, due to the prevailing lack of oxygen there. A hermetic seal prevents unpleasant odours permeating to the outside. So KIPPY turns out to be a friend for both smokers and non-smokers.
