MAKING ONE’S WASHROOM VISIT LESS LEISURELY


Steve Palmer from Tork manufacturer Essity looks at ways of speeding up the leisure washroom visit.


According to a recent study the average person spends  that equates to more than 14 hours a year.


The very busiest of washrooms tend to be found in environments such as amusement centres, stadiums and attractions such as zoos and theme parks. These tend to become very crowded during the summer months which means that some congestion in the toilets is inevitable.


But any time spent queueing for the washroom will be a major source of frustration. Tickets to theme parks and summer events often come at a high price which means that any time spent away from the rides and sideshows will be bitterly resented.


Similarly in sports stadia and music festivals, everyone will want to visit the toilet at once – usually between acts – and will be in a hurry to return to their place again before the next act begins. So the risk of congestion will again be very high.


40 | LEISURE & HOSPITALITY


So, what can be done to make the washroom visit less leisurely? And is there any way of managing the queues?


First we need to consider why queues are likely to form in  an adequate number of washroom facilities for the anticipated crowds in their buildings. But if a lavatory has become blocked or the toilet paper supply has run out – or if a particular cubicle is in urgent need of cleaning – the public will naturally avoid those blocked, dirty or paperless cubicles and queue instead for the remaining ones.


Similarly where soap or paper supplies have run out at the sinks there will be greater competition for the remaining facilities. Queues can therefore be kept to a minimum by ensuring that all cubicles and sinks remain in action at all times – but this is not as easy as it sounds.


In environments such as stadiums and music festivals where everyone converges on the washrooms at the 
