Last link in the chain: some disused toilets could be a youth drop-in centre if submitted plans to change them are approved. The idea is shared between Weymouth councillor Geoff Petherick and a housing group. Coun Petherick said he has been seeking a permanent location for some time for the centre. He added: “Part of the problem with the toilets and a reason they got closed was the huge cost of maintaining them – around £40,000 a year.”
Disused public conveniences have become an issue – mainly because they cost so much to keep open in these difficult economic times. Toilet Turnstiles can help councils, other bodies and private companies to generate revenue for the general regular maintenance for their loos. Coin operated, token, access control mechanism: the turnstiles are compatible with a variety of entry methods. They are duty cycle rated for intensive use. The turnstile bodies have lockable lids to prevent unwanted access and are securely mounted to the floor plate.
