Members of the North East Lincs Disability Access Group have decided to start campaigning against the closure of public toilets in Grimsby, some of which had disabled access.
According to a news report in the local media, the group agreed to write to the council in protest and lobby ward councillors.
The cash-saving measure, due to Government cutbacks, was announced earlier this month and expected to be put into action within a fortnight. The local council said that closing the toilets would save about £94,000 per year.
Unfortunately, the public toilets’ operational costs can be quite significant at times, so charging a fee for access is the most sensible solution when it comes to public toilets’ funding, and this is 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 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.
