A set of public toilets across the Isle of Wight is set to be demolished and replaced with new, modern and purpose-built conveniences, a news report in the local media has been able to suggest.
Plans to knock down the Gate Lane public toilets in Freshwater Bay and build new ones have been submitted to the Isle of Wight Council.
A group established by Freshwater Parish Council to design the new commodities was set up several months ago and it’s ultimately thought to be cheaper to demolish and start again then refurbish the previous site by almost £10,000.
A design and access statement from the parish council describes the toilets as ‘dilapidated’ and in a ‘state of disrepair’.
The new toilets could be extended to include disabled loos with baby changing facilities and more stalls.
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 very good use.
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.
