A public toilet in Poole was subjected to an appalling repeat vandal attack after suffering a similar incident back in November, a recent news report in the local media has been able to reveal.
The latest attack put two toilets out of action with expanding foam.
One of the cubicles targeted, the disabled toilet at Baiter Park, was also hit last November, when concrete was poured down the pan. Now the gents at the Watch Station on Poole Quay has also been filled with expanding foam.
Borough of Poole spent £2,300 putting right the damage last time and is currently investigating how far the foam has gone into the pipework.
“Borough of Poole only has a limited budget to cover 26 public toilets in Poole, and it is incredibly frustrating to have to use this to repair this malicious and intentional vandalism” commented Cllr Xena Dion, cabinet portfolio holder for a prosperous and sustainable Poole.
Installing a solid access restriction system is certainly something local authorities should consider, especially when faced with vandalism, and that’s 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.
