A new campaign by the British Toilet Association (BTA) is asking for the government to make free toilets compulsory in every town and city in the UK, and are concerned that for some authorities, it’s not a number one, or even a number two priority, a recent news report has been able to suggest.
The BTA claims that the lack of public conveniences has negative effects on people’s mobility, as some parts of the population are now too scared to leave their homes because of an absence of even the most bog-standard facilities.
Raymond Martin, the BTA’s managing director, said: “Elderly people, vulnerable people and those with certain conditions are not going out into town centres now because they’re worried about getting caught short.
“Councils have absolutely no responsibility for toilet provision. They never have and they never will.
“Those that do provide a toilet do so because they see it as a moral duty. It’s up to the government to change that.”
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.
