The Gill public toilets in Ulverston are set to undergo a significant upgrade process, which will also see contactless payment being introduced inside the facilities, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.
The public conveniences will be temporarily closed while a number of changes are made to the site, including: a new slate roof; new doors; new sanitary ware; and the introduction of contactless payment.
New doors are scheduled to be fitted on all of the cubicles to enable payment by swipe, while one toilet will retain its cash facility.
The final section of the work will be a complete refurbishment of all three cubicles including new sanitary ware.
Before its closure, the public toilet was open from 7am until 7pm and had a 20p charge.
Most other publicly-accessed toilets in the town were open during daytime hours when the businesses operated until lockdown began last year.
Toilet Turnstile UK – expert suppliers of access restriction and payment solutions for the public convenience sector
Charging a fee for access is quite often the most sensible solution when it comes to public toilets’ funding – and indeed keeping these facilities open for the general public, and this is exactly where Toilet Turnstiles could really put its experience to very good use.
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.
