The newly-opened public toilets in Hailsham have suffered vandalism damage for the third time since they were opened in August, a recent news report in the local media was able to reveal.
The public conveniences were targeted over the week beginning October 13, the vandals damaging a cubicle door and blocking a toilet with paper.
Following the incidents, Hailsham Town Council is appealing for witnesses to come forward. A spokesman said: “The town council wishes to express its dismay once again at the news that the public toilets in North Street have been vandalised.
“Sussex Police are aware of the problem and, as the repair costs to these facilities will ultimately fall upon you – the taxpayer – we would urge anyone who has information regarding who may be responsible for the damage to contact the police immediately on their non-emergency number.”
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.
