Eight public toilets in Burnley and Pendle, Lancashire, are set for closure after becoming a target for ‘anti-social behaviour’, a news report in the local media has revealed.
Three different public toilets in Burnley will be decommissioned after becoming a target for vagrants and other anti-social elements, who were caught sleeping in the disabled facility. Closing them would also help the local authority recoup £15,500.
The situation in Pendle is even more dire, since five public conveniences are set to be axed in order to save £114,000. Another two will be saved if the borough’s executive agrees to deals being struck with town and parish councillors in Earby and Barley.
Although cash strapped council do have to do their best in order to maintain vital services and cut back wherever they can, implementing an access restriction system and charging for access within these public conveniences might be something they should take into account, on the long-term, 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.
