New research into public toilets has revealed that, over the past 10 years, up to 40 percent of the UK’s public conveniences have shut down, which makes the daily working life extremely difficult especially for commuters, but also disabled persons.
As a news report on the topic informs us, trade union Unison is calling for all mobile workers to have access to toilets, saying government cuts are leading to the reduction in free and accessible public conveniences.
Heather Wakefield, Unison head of local government, said: ‘There are significant differences between the number of toilets in each local authority. Government cuts to council budgets have led to many closing facilities leaving many areas without public toilets. For mobile workers, finding a toilet while on the move is a daily problem.”
Although the lack of funds significantly affects local authorities in charge of keeping the public toilets open, charging a small fee for access might avert it, and that’s exactly where Toilet Turnstiles could really puts its experience to good work.
Our toilet turnstiles are built from graded stainless steel, for easier cleaning and maintenance, and also comes equipped with lockable lids to prevent unwanted access. Furthermore, the separate coin box offers very versatile mounting options, as it can be installed either in front of the turnstile, at the side or alternatively, on the wall, with the cash box at the rear.
The turnstile’s coin mechanism can be programmed for virtually any combination of coins with a secure cash box to hold them, while the additional counters for the number of entries made will enable a thorough level of control over the system’s operation.
