Interior or exterior turnstiles can boost council coffers
A public-spirited council is giving new life to a run-down ‘WC’ building. The local authority in charge of a 1930s toilet block at Gullane in south-east Scotland pledged to improve the facility, which was in a poor state of repair. Ruth Currie, cabinet member for community wellbeing at East Lothian, said that the new facilities will meet modern standards. No doubt the local council is aware of the improved trade and tourism prospects that towns enjoy when public toilet facilities remain.
Tensor plc supplies coin operated toilet turnstiles for both interior and exterior installations, allowing money to be raised for their maintenance to aid cash-strapped councils or private companies. The turnstiles are manufactured from graded stainless steel for ease of cleaning and maintenance and are duty cycle rated for intensive use. The turnstiles can cope with severe operating conditions. 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, giving a huge range of configurable options.
