A total of ten public toilets across Edinburgh could be closed down as part of the local council’s efforts to save money, a recent news report in the local media has been able to reveal.
On the list of facilities earmarked for closure are the toilets on London Road, near the top of Easter Road, while other public toilets in the wider North East Edinburgh area that look likely to close include those at Cannonmills, Joppa, and Granton Square.
The council is said to be keen to work with local businesses near the facilities that could close in an effort to provide public access to toilet facilities, at least whilst they’re open.
Since the public toilets’ operational costs may indeed be quite significant at times, charging a fee for access is the most sensible solution when it comes to public toilets’ funding, and this is exactly where Toilet Turnstiles could really puts 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.
