The Hayes Island Snack Bar in Cardiff has stepped up and decided to lend local authorities a helping hand in order to keep the historic Hayes public toilets open, a news report in the local media has revealed.
The toilets were closed last year as a result of budget cuts, but the council’s decision sparkled a campaign to keep them open spearheaded by the Welsh Senate of Older People who said the closure would not just hit the elderly community but also those with medical conditions and families with young children.
Nevertheless, the new ownership at Hayes Island Snack Bar decided to take lend a helping hand and take ownership of the public conveniences, although bringing them to an operational state, both aesthetically and functionally, will take quite a bit of time.
The new owner said that he is looking into the possibility of setting up other business ventures on the site to generate income to help pay for the toilets, and that has not yet decided whether customers will have to pay to use the toilets or not.
Toilet Turnstiles supplies an extensive range of solutions designed specifically to restrict access to a public toilet and also charge for access to the premises.
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.
