The local council in the town of Kelso, in the Scottish Borders, has decided not to reopen former public toilets in Kelso’s Knowes car park, community councillors have been warned.

Local Scottish Borders councillor Tom Weatherston said the former toilets in The Knowes had been subject to repeated vandalism, adding: “And it was agreed by this community council it was in the best interests of Kelso to close them.”

He also told councillors that pressures on SBC budgets were also a major factor. “Not to beat about the bush, there’s about as much chance of getting those toilets reopened as there is of me going to the moon,” he said.

Installing a solid access restriction system is certainly something local authorities should consider, especially when faced with vandalism, 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 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.
