High cleaning bills and poor maintenance were the main factors that prompted Angus councillors to decide the closure of around 25% of all public toilets in the county, a news report in the local media has revealed.
Several public loos that were also initially on the chopping board were saved during a neighbourhood services committee meeting, as officers contended vandalism and drug abuse out of the public eye have driven proper use right down.
Given the very important role public toilets play for high streets and markets, keeping them open should really be a priority for most local councils.
When no other funding solutions are available, installing an access control system and charging a modest fee for the toilet’s maintenance would also be a good idea, and this is exactly where Toilet Turnstiles could put its extensive experience to very good use.
Our toilet turnstiles are built from graded stainless steel, for easier cleaning and maintenance, and also come 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.
