A local authority is considering deploying a new turnstile system for public toilets, as well as enabling cashless payments for all the new units, a recent news report has been able to suggest.
Newbury Town Council took on the running of the Wharf toilets earlier in 2016, in a move set to cost around £30,000, and discussed the option of installing turnstiles for improved security.
Turnstiles would reduce the risk of anti-social behaviour as well as lessen the need for change machines or storage boxes. They would also have the option to pay by coin but the additional contactless payment option would mean those using the facility would be not need to fumble around looking for the 20p charge in change.
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 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.
