With more and more public toilets across the UK being closed due to the significant budget cuts local authorities are faced with, it shouldn’t really come as much of a surprise that the task of trying to keep them open has been passed down to the people who actually need to use them on a daily basis.
In fact, that’s also the case with the village of Fernhurst, in Sussex, where the Parish Council is trying to negotiate a deal with the Chichester District Council in order to reopen public toilets in the village.
Given the fact that Fernhurst is at the gateway to the national park, the parish council argues that the village is a prime site for walkers, and is on the walking route from Haslemere station, as well as being a busy village itself.
The district council has agreed to meet the rates accounting for the cleaning and servicing of the toilets, which amount to several thousand pounds a year.
Of course, such funding might unfortunately cease at some point, so charging a small fee for access might actually be a better idea altogether, and this is exactly where Toilet Turnstiles could help, since our Coin Operated Turnstiles are capable of providing a very reliable solution for restricting access to such a public convenience.
Our turnstiles are manufactured from graded stainless steel, for easier cleaning and maintenance, and also comes 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.
It’s also important to mention that the 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.
