Local authorities across Wales could be made accountable for the provision of enough public toilets according to new legislation currently being drafted by the Welsh government.
Under the new rules, councils would be required to assess, regularly review, and meet the local demand for all the public conveniences they manage, including those in libraries and sports halls, a news source has revealed.
If passed, it is thought it could be the first duty of its type to be introduced in the UK.
Last year the British Toilet Association estimated that there has been a 40% drop in the number of public toilets across the UK in the last 10 years, which has adversely affected a wide array of people, but especially the older and disabled, who can be left afraid of venturing out of their homes.
On the other hand, properly maintaining and running public toilets can be quite an expensive endeavour, so charging a fee for access is the most sensible solution when it comes to public toilets’ funding.
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.
