The owners of a Devon beach resort took it upon themselves to build a new toilet block that will raise the standards as far as beach toilets are concerned.
Rob and Sarah Tucker, who own Putsborough Sands in North Devon, undertook the work as part of an investment project which has seen nearly £250,000 spent on the beach in the past year, a news report in the local media recently revealed.
The new toilet block replaces the old toilet building, which was opened in 1965, and includes modern facilities for both beach goers and residents at the neighbouring campsite.
Rob said: "It’s a family business, not a business where we are here for five years and then move on to something else.
"It’s important for us to invest in the long term, not just for now. And everything we’ve done here has been out of our own pockets, there has been no public funding involved."
The new facility will remain open throughout the year, as well as Putsborough Sands’ car park and shop.
Since we’re talking about a private toilet that relies only on self-generated funds to cover operational costs, charging a fee for access is the most sensible solution, 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.
