Acts of vandalism and anti-social behaviour have forced the closure of public toilets in Minehead, a recent news report in the local business media has been able to suggest.
The toilets in Summerland Place were damaged sometime between noon and 6pm on Friday, April 13.
The damage was discovered by the cleaning contractor and involved a broken water pipe which had caused the premises to be flooded.
The building had to be closed for safety reasons but is now open.
Then, between 7am and 11.30am on Saturday, the toilets were badly vandalised. The rear windows of the ladies and the disabled toilet were broken, a toilet seat had been ripped away and and an interior door lock broken.
The gents toilets were vandalised overnight. When the cleaner arrived on Sunday, she found that the lock had been vandalised and they could not be opened.
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.
