As more and more local councils across the UK are faced with the tough choice of either charging for access to the public toilets they manage or closing them altogether, it’s becoming quite clear that citizens who still want to actually keep using these public conveniences will unfortunately have to spend a few pence every time they do so.
That will also be the case with the public toilets in Southport, since the Sefton Council has revealed the fact that some of their previous free facilities will start charging a 20p access charge from June 1, while the already paying toilet facilities will see a 50% increase from 20p to 30p.
Although perhaps a bit unpopular, this move will nevertheless maintain all the toilets in Southport open, not to mention that at least some of the toilets operated by the council will still be free of charge.
When deciding to set an access charge for using public toilets, enforcing the charge with the help of a good quality, reliable, yet affordable turnstile is the best way to go, and that’s exactly Toilet Turnstiles’ area of expertise.
The Coin Operated Turnstiles manufactured by Toilet Turnstiles are built 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.
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.
