Public toilets that have recently undergone a £58,000 revamp have already been subject to vandalism, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.
A few weeks ago, vandals stuffed toilet paper down the toilets and smashed a toilet roll holder, with town clerk Lynda Ling calling the behaviour “unacceptable”.
She said: “It’s just a shame. You do things to keep them free, take on the extra expense for the residents and the visitors, and then this happens.”
“You just can’t understand why people do stuff like that.
“It’s not acceptable and it’s not a good use of taxpayers’ money.”
Harleston’s toilets have been making the news ever since the installation of the ‘state-of-the-art’ toilets in 2015.
The self-cleaning toilets were plagued by vandalism and complaints by local residents, until the town council decided to refurbish the old toilet block.
Installing a solid access restriction system is certainly the best approach by local authorities when faced with vandalism, and that’s 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.
