Public Women’s Urinals Aim To Shorten The Wait For When You Need To Pee – Corporate B2B Sales & Digital Marketing Agency in Cardiff covering UK

No, this isn’t a merry-go-round. It’s a set of the first women’s urinals in the UK, called the ‘Peequal’.

Irked by the snaking lines outside public toilets at music festivals, two University of Bristol graduates, Amber Probyn and Hazel McShane, came up with the Peequel to speed the wait along. They gathered six wedges with urinals into one quirky-looking circle, so six women can use the public toilet at once.

Despite having an open top for natural lighting, the cubicles—constructed from 100% recycled and recyclable materials—offer privacy from the waist down. They are also “hands-free” with 10 fewer touchpoints than public toilets, ensuring proper sanitation and eliminating the transmission of virus particles during the COVID era.

You might be wondering how urinals for women work, and McShane explains they’re “designed like a boat to minimize splashback.” Meanwhile, the small spaces allow a little room to stash your clothing in front, she tells the Guardian.

The news outlet explains that there are actually too few toilets for women in the UK, and that women spend “34 times longer” waiting to use public restrooms than men do. This is mainly because there are 10 male urinals for every women’s toilet on average.

The Peequel aims to overcome this shortage—and it can even be configured to accommodate more users, so it’s already at least six times more efficient than if you were to install one portable toilet. Plus, the modules are flat-packed, making them easy to set up, pull apart, or shift around.

The unique setup was first installed at the Bristol Comedy Garden last week, and you can be sure you won’t have to wait a wee moment too long before more appear.
