Toilet turnstiles offer speed and reliability without compromising safety
Some of the existing public toilet facilities are under threat for budgetary reasons at one local council. The town of March in north Cambridgeshire currently only has two sets of toilets and both facilities are well-used. The town’s governing district council wants to balance the books and toilets are an easy target. It is feared the loss of Broad Street’s toilets would damage visitor numbers during well-attended events such as the Summer Festival and the St George’s Day fair.
Tensor's toilet turnstiles have a coin mechanism which can be programmed for virtually any combination of coins with a secure cash box to hold the coins, as a means of boosting council coffers. Without compromising the safety of those who use the turnstile, speed and reliability are provided even during rush hour periods. 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.
