Half height turnstile doubles throughput while keeping space to a minimum
A dispute raged on Tuesday (February 5, 2013) over plans to introduce charges at public conveniences in a city centre. Councillors want to bring in a 30p fee for Edinburgh – the first time the council has made people pay for ‘spending the proverbial penny’. Liberal Democrat environment spokesman Robert Aldridge remarked: “If there is a charge for public conveniences, fewer people will use them.” The council replied that charging for the toilets also brought an element of control over them.
Tensor’s turnstiles – ideal for installing at public loos – give control over their access as well as providing a source of revenue. Coupled with a set of smart cards, flow capacity is significantly increased compared with any swipe card system, as the card is read in under ¼ second and does not have to be removed from a wallet or purse. Available as a double half height turnstile, your throughput can be doubled while keeping the amount of space down to a minimum.
