More than £10 million has been cut from spending on public toilets over the past two years, with numerous such conveniences closing and leaving mobile workers (such as street cleaners and refuse collectors) unable to find a place to ”spend a penny”, Unison has warned.
The union argued that some councils are spending 13% less on maintaining and repairing public conveniences, with the biggest cuts in London and the North West, and asked for improved toilet facilities for mobile workers.
General secretary Dave Prentis said: "It is only right that people should be able to enjoy a great sporting event like the World Cup a carefree way with family and friends, but there is a clear risk to public health when there are so few public toilets available for people to use when they need them."
Toilet Turnstiles has a proven experience in supplying access restriction solutions for public toilets. 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.
