With the Commonwealth Games approaching fast, Glasgow is set to receive a huge number of tourists, but it seems that the city is confronted by a serious problem involving the number of available public toilets.
According to a recent news report, SNP’s environment spokeswoman, Alison Thewliss, criticised the city council over the huge number of ASBOs issued by Strathclyde Police for public urination in the 19 months to February of this year, namely around 8600.
She said: “The council have cut back on their provision of public toilets over the years so while disappointing, it is not surprising to hear about the scale of this problem. It’s important the council works with businesses in the night time economy to increase the access to facilities.”
Austerity measures have hit every council across the UK pretty hard, and unfortunately, public toilets are among the first services to be cancelled. One of the best ways of keeping these public conveniences open, while in the same time exerting less pressure on the public funds, is to have them equipped with special access restriction solutions, the Coin Operated Turnstiles manufactured by Toilet Turnstiles being the best and most affordable tools for the job.
Our turnstiles are manufactured from graded stainless steel, for easier cleaning and maintenance, and also comes equipped with lockable lids to prevent unwanted access. Addition, 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.
It’s also important to mention that the 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.
