External gas cause of explosion of UriLift Amsterdam
Apeldoorn, 16 December 2014 - An investigation by the Labour Inspectorate into the cause of the explosion which took place on 29 November last, has shown there to be no malfunctioning and therefore no design fault in the UriLift.
Gas monitoring, conducted by KIWA Technologie BV, detected an increased concentration of gas. Further investigation by Net manager Liander indicated an external gas leak, in the direct vicinity of the UriLift. Liander has since rectified the gas leak in the gas pipeline network.
Director Marco Schimmel: âThe investigation by the Labour Inspectorate and KIWA confirms our initial suspicions, that the cause of the explosion was to be sought externally. UriLifts have been in use since 2000, and there has never been an explosion. Under normal circumstances, a UriLift cannot cause an explosion: a UriLift does not make use of gas after all, and is also not connected to a gas network."
UriLift is a big success in Esbjerg, Denmark
Mads Peter H. SĂ¸rensen, Technical and Environmental Department:
We (all citizens in the town) are very happy with the UriLift. Every night at about 22.00 the UriLift is activated by personnel from a bar nearby (they have a remote). Next morning the street-sweepers clean it from empty cans, glass etc. and lower it down with their remote. They also activate the self-cleaning-system, so the UriLift is clean when it is activated in the evening. It is still looking just as good as it looks when it was new. No scratches and so.
The UriLift has been used everyday since the year of installing (2004). And it is being used a lot, specially in the weekends. We have practically no complains. It is used without problems. There has been some small maintenance on some of the hydraulic valves (noting last forever), but not many.
If clients are interested to have a look at the UriLift, they are welcome.
Islington Council install a Urilift at tube station Farringdon/ Super nightclub The Fabric
Operations Management of Islingtonâs Street Environment Services :
âIslington Council install a pop-up âUriliftâ urinal at the corner of St John St and Cowcross Street. The site is particularly suited for the Fabric queue, and by being visible, will be far better known than the temporary urinals that Islington has been installing on Friday and Saturday nights in the area.
This is a response to years of complaints by local people about the sight, and consequences, of clubbers and drinkers urinating in the street and various alleys off them, and recent efforts to get licensed premises to take more responsibility for their customers. It is quite normal to see drinkers outside pubs relieving themselves in the street - rather than using the facilities inside which are available to them.â
Guildford: Pop-up urinal set to solve a 'wee' problem By Vita Millers, 30/ 7/2008
âDISAPPEARINGâ urinal are due to be built in Guildford town centre, in a bid to crack down on men urinating in public after a night out.
This week the borough council was given the go-ahead to spend ÂŁ54,000 installing a toilet unit, known as a Urilift, in North Street near Friary Passage. It will be the first of its kind to be used in Surrey.
The two-metre high, stainless steel construction containing three urinals, will be stored underground during the day. It will pop up at 10pm and drop down again at approximately 3am every day.
The only 24-hour public toilets currently in the town centre, are in Bedford Road car park, but as they are not close to the North Street taxi rank, it is believed the shortage of loos contributes to the public urination.
Urinating on the streets
A council spokesman said: âWe intend to use the pop-up loo to tackle the problem of people urinating in shop doorways and on the streets of our town centre.
âGuildfordâs retailers and the councilâs street cleaning crews spend a great deal of time washing and disinfecting areas that have been affected by this problem.â
The issue of men relieving themselves in public has been something Guildford authorities have been trying to tackle for number of years. In response to the problem, Surrey Police launched a âwaterbusâ in 2004, which is a portable water tank fully equipped with buckets, brooms and disinfectant. People caught urinating indiscriminately can choose either to clean up after themselves or face possible arrest. The scheme was relaunched this summer. Last week a man refused to clean up his mess and was issued with a ÂŁ80 fine.
A spokesman for Surrey Police said: âWe think that the Urilift will be a positive thing for the town centre. âIf theyâre used properly, they will be of benefit to the community and generally people using the town at night.â
Town centre incidents of urinating include a man who was caught relieving himself through the letterbox of a house in Walnut Tree Close, last November. Last December, a man threatened to beat up bouncers outside a Guildford nightclub, before urinating in an alleyway.
