The 12 public facilities in the Cornish town of St Ives were not opened in a timely fashion the past weekened, leading to quite a large number of the town’s visitors rushing in to use the toilets available in public houses, cafes or shops, a media news report has revealed.
A private contractor is in charge of opening and closing the public toilets, but, for some reason, they remained closed throughout the weekend.
Luckily, shops, cafes and pubs proved to have quite a serious sense of community and stepped up to this challenges, since, as soon as they became aware of the problem, some put signs in their windows offering access to their facilities, free of charge.
Even when public toilet operation is managed by a private contractor, owners (in this case, local authorities) should also seriously consider the implementation of a solid and reliable access restriction solution, and this is specifically where Toilet Turnstile can help.
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.
