Public toilets across Pembrokeshire have gained UK-wide recognition by winning the Loo of the Year Awards, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.
Danfo UK Limited, which cleans and maintains the toilets, were awarded best external contractor in Wales for the work they undertake in Pembrokeshire. The state of the art changing places facility on Tenby The Green (Salterns) car park was crowned best in Wales while the refurbishment of the whole facility won an award for being one of the top toilets within a car park.
Overall, the number of toilets awarded the highest accolades has increased with those achieving the top category, platinum status, increasing from one toilet in 2015 to six in 2018.
Toilets achieving gold status have increased from 41 toilets in 2015 to 58 in 2018.
Each toilet was visited and inspected by a representative of the Loo of the Year organisation and judged with the outcome based on a grading system.
“These accolades are proof that the partnership between Pembrokeshire County Council and Danfo UK is working,” said PCC’s Cabinet Member for the Environment and Welsh Language, Councillor Cris Tomos.
“We have the second highest number of public toilets in the UK so having so many in tip top condition is a great indication of what we are providing members of the public.
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.
