Now as the holiday season approaches, do you know what should be high on the list of priorities for a seaside or historic town’s amenities, and which every man, woman or child needs? Not ice cream, not sand, not a theme park, but a toilet. Visitors and tourists also rank the availability of toilets high in their lists of reasons why a location is worth visiting, a point made by Peter Hampson, Director of the British Resorts and Destinations Association (BRADA). He said: "If you are a visitor and there on a temporary basis, provision of toilets becomes absolutely fundamental…most journeys start and finish with people going to the loo."
Visitors will always need to "spend a penny", and if they literally do so (well, perhaps 20p), then the needs of keeping up the cost of maintaining and cleaning the toilet facilities are well met. This is the idea behind toilet turnstiles from Tensor – developed from the need for local authorities and private companies to provide public conveniences to a good standard and generate revenue for the general day to day maintenance, cleaning and upkeep.
Tensor’s turnstiles are perfect for high volumes of traffic, and they provide maximum flow capacity, whilst causing minimal disruption. They have the added benefit of preventing people from wandering into the toilets as they now have to pay for the privilege.
