Coin operated turnstiles from Tensor plc are adaptable
Many organisations have formed to point out the problems faced by disabled people regarding provision of suitable toilets and to campaign for improvements. One of them was the charity ITAAL (Is There An Accessible Loo?), whose website www.cae.org.uk/itaal.html has been taken care of by the Centre for Accessible Environments for the past five years. The term 'disabled person' covers people with a wide range of disabilities and health conditions – and there are millions of disabled people in Britain.
Coin operated toilet turnstiles from Tensor plc are adaptable, giving a vast range of configurable options. For example, the separate coin box can be mounted either in front of the turnstile, at the side or alternatively can be wall mounted with the cash box at the rear, so the box can be modified to give the best access possible to the disabled. This is an example of how toilet turnstile technology has developed – they are available in different shapes and formats – to accommodate the disabled. The turnstile bodies have lockable lids to prevent unwanted intrusion, so that toilets can be self-financing while promoting universal access.
