Following a long campaign by shoppers for the provision of toilets in the town centre, the North Lincolnshire Council has decided to spend £97,000 on converting a former retail unit next to Scunthorpe Market into public toilets, a recent news report in the local media has been able to reveal.
The new public toilets will be operated by a turnstile and there will also be a disabled toilet operated by a radar key. They will be open Monday to Saturday from 8.30am to 5.30pm and closed Sundays and Bank Holidays.
Shoppers caught short will have to pay 20p for access to the public conveniences, which will offer three ladies and three gents cubicles. One of each will be an assisted toilet, which will be a larger toilet.
Charging a fee for access is the most sensible solution when it comes to public toilets’ funding, and this is exactly where Toilet Turnstiles could really puts 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.
