The Loch in Lanark, one of the biggest tourist attractions in the area, is in serious danger of losing its only public toilet, a news report in the local media has revealed.
The ageing toilet block at the lochside has been closed for quite a while, awaiting South Lanarkshire Council to repair it. Unfortunately, due to the extensive length of time the council took in order to actually start the repair job, the building is now beyond saving and will be demolished, probably in the autumn.
This news was not particularly well-received by the Lanark Community Council, which has been pushing South Lanarkshire Council to carry out the necessary repairs and re-open the public facility.
Although it might seem like a fairly difficult and funds-consuming enterprise, keeping the Lanark Loch public toilet open might actually be an easier task than expected, especially if the council decides to start charging a small access fee for their use. And the best solution for such an undertaking is represented by the Coin Operated Turnstiles manufactured by Toilet Turnstiles.
Built from graded stainless steel, for easier cleaning and maintenance, our turnstiles 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.
