Holidaymakers taking advantage of the good weather and choosing Cornwall as a destination might be so displeased with the lack of public toilets that they could avoid ever coming back to the area, tourism authorities have warned.
And that’s because around 10% of the county’s public toilets (more than 30 units in total) are currently closed, despite the start of the peak tourist season, as a news report points out.
Last year, Cornwall Council announced it had been forced to review its "non-statutory" services because of funding cuts. For this reason, parish councils have taken on the maintenance and cleaning of some public toilets, with some charging users.
However, there are still quite a few areas where no public conveniences are available, which prompted concerns about the tourists’ overall level of satisfaction.
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.
