New public toilets are set to be installed at Parade Gardens in the centre of Bath, as part of Bath & North East Somerset Council’s plans to improve facilities across the local area, a news report was able to reveal.
The Council’s contract with Healthmatic Ltd will provide investment in cleaning and management services for 15 years, and means that 15 public toilets in parks, play areas, green spaces and key transport hubs will remain open and be improved.
The new public toilets at Parade Gardens will have unisex cubicles, one will be disability compliant and will have baby-change facilities.
The cubicles will offer a high standard of cleanliness and safety and are able to handle large numbers of people using them, while also being large enough for a parent with a couple of small children and a pushchair to use together.
High-tech controls means access can be 24 hours / 7 days a week all year and timers can be adjusted remotely to suit local need as well, while access is by coin entry to a totally private cubicle with its own hand-washing and drying facilities.
The inside is resistant to vandalism and misuse with an easy-clean tiled interior and hard-wearing fittings, while problems can be detected remotely enabling rapid response by Healthmatic’s engineering and maintenance teams.
All of the refurbished facilities will be charged at 20p for use, in order to make the contract sustainable over the next 15 years.
Charging a fee for access is the most sensible solution when it comes to public toilets’ funding, and 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.
