Three public toilets in Caerphilly face closure as the local council committee has to make savings of £14.53m in 2014/15, in order to comply with the UK Government’s austerity measures, a news report in the local business media has revealed.
If closed, the public conveniences located in Nelson, Newbridge and Fleur de Lys would save the council close to £24,000 a year in maintenance and operation costs, which is no small sum, especially since further additional savings of £6.54m need to be made for 2015/16 and £7.06m for 2016/17, amounting to £28.13m over the next three years.
In some specific cases, councils can actually manage to gather the funds required to cover the toilets’ maintenance and operation by installing access restriction solutions and charging a small sum for access.
Toilet Turnstiles supplies an extensive range of solutions designed specifically to restrict access to a public toilet and also charge for access to the premises.
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.
