Since there’s no such thing as a statutory duty for councils to fund public toilets, a very large number of such public conveniences have been shut down following recent Government cutbacks for local councils.
That was also the case with the town of Belper, in Derbyshire, where Amber Valley Borough Council has decided to shut down all of the public toilets, claiming that the move would save the council coffers around £16,500 per year.
However, the Belper Town Council agreed to fund the re-opening of part of the toilets during a meeting last week, after finding they could run them on £4,500 a year.
Although such a move would probably not be particularly popular with most people using the toilets, one of the best solutions for keeping a public toilet open is setting an access charge, and the most cost-effective solution of this type is represented by the Coin Operated Turnstiles from Toilet Turnstiles.
Our turnstiles are accompanied by a separate coin box that 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.
Additionally, the coin mechanism can be programmed for virtually any combination of coins, while the additional counters for the number of entries made will enable a higher level of control regarding the system’s use and cash input.
