No queues in the women's bathroom! In Britain, they invented a female urinal

Graduates of the University of Bristol, who are tired of standing in queues in women's toilets, have invented a special female urinal, which, according to them, reduces the time required for a lady to visit the toilet by 6 times.

In some places, the queues in the women's restrooms stretch from the toilet itself to the front door of the catering establishment. At the same time, the neighboring queue of men is ten times smaller or it simply does not exist. Two young British women decided to fight for the speed of coping with the need.

Amber Probyn and Hazel McShane, who graduated from the University of Bristol last year, created the Peequal contactless urinal when they were asked to solve a "real life problem" as a graduation project.

This invention is a "quick access toilet" for "women who just want to pee," the authors of the project told TodayFM.

Instead, Peequal speeds up the toilet queue, meaning that those who need full toilets will still have access to regular cubicles, while others will be able to empty urinal cubicles within seconds.

A study that the girls conducted while working on the project showed that women wait in line 34 times longer than men, because for every female public toilet there are 10 male urinals. And already in the booths, up to 80 percent of women still do not sit on the toilet seat to avoid bacteria.

Often, women spend more time going to the public toilet because of menstruation, which significantly increases the queues. If women's urinals are used more widely, those who need to spend more time in the toilet will be able to use a regular stall while others queue at Peequal.

Not having to open and close doors, wipe the toilet seat, or lay out toilet paper on it also increases efficiency. A prototype urinal is being tested at the Bristol Comedy Garden this weekend. Some privacy is still provided, so people in the queue to Peequal will not see its visitors below the belt.

Probyn and McShane told the BBC that when they worked at music festivals, they had to choose between going to the toilet and going for food, as the queues were incredibly long. McShane studied physics and innovation, while Probyn studied anthropology and innovation.

Before coming up with their urinal, which they claim reduces waiting times in line, they spoke to more than 2,000 women in Bristol in focus groups and pubs. They designed the shape of the toilet bowl so that it is suitable for low, high and wide seating, which means that urinals are suitable for most women. Probyn added that the time spent queuing in the women's bathroom is "wasted hours in the lives of women."

According to BristolPost, the girls won the top prize in Bristol University's flagship entrepreneurial competition for startups – £ 15,000. The new urinal, which can be transported folded and placed in three different ways, is said to produce 98 percent less CO2 than other portable toilets and is made from 100 percent recyclable materials.
