Residents in the Isle of Wight have expressed their concerns regarding the lack of public toilets, as well as the reduced opening times for the existing ones, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.

Sandown residents and business owners took to social media over the bank holiday weekend to express their anger over the lack of public toilets in the popular holiday destination. On Thursday last week, the Isle of Wight council announced that due to safety concerns, the planned reopening of the public toilets opposite Sandown Pier, would be delayed.

As well as there being a reduction of public toilets on the seafront, one person working on the beach said that those using 100+ beach huts would have to walk 1km to use a toilet. 

Cabinet member for regeneration and business development Cllr Wayne Whittle said: “We are considering whether it will be possible to provide temporary toilets at peak times.”, but some residents have also pointed out that the possibility of temporary toilets is something that’s been raised before.

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 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.
