Toilet turnstiles are a very good solution for reducing vandalism in public toilets, a phenomenon that has recently affected public conveniences in Alnwick.
The facilities at The Shambles, underneath the Northumberland Hall, were shut earlier this week as a result of louts causing more than £1,000 of destruction over the weekend. Both the male and female toilets were targeted, with damage to pans, taps and cistern.
A county council spokeswoman said: “We had just completed repairs from the last incidence of vandalism and reopened the toilets on Christmas Eve.
“They have been vandalised again over the weekend, with pans, taps and cistern all damaged, and we closed them to the public again on Tuesday morning. We will arrange repairs and reopening as soon as possible.”
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 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.
