The UK’s first urinal for WOMEN uses up to 6 times faster than a toilet – and promises to run out of lines

The days of women queuing twice as long as men to get into rooms may finally be over.

A pair of pioneers have invented the UK’s first urinal for women – and they say it uses up six times faster than traditional portable urinals.

Amber Probyn and Hazel McShane, 23 and 25, designed the hands-free Peequal while studying at the University of Bristol.

They came up with the idea as a way to reduce waiting times for women, who were fed up of the long queues at the festival toilets.

After winning a comedy festival last summer, the duo have raised £250,000 from investors and will sign to several major festivals in 2022.

Hazel said: “This funding is not only a huge vote of confidence in Peequal but also an important moment for pee equality around the world.

“We want Peequal to empower women to take back their time and break the taboo around women’s pee.”

Peequal has a boat-shaped pot into which you squat with one leg on either side.

There are bars to hold themselves in place and the shape is designed to minimize splash. Like traditional portable liquids, there is no rinse.

There are also no doors, with the user’s head and chest sticking out so those in line can see which stalls are free.

Following the conclusion of the first round of funding, Peequal will become a popular attraction at UK festivals and events, with 250 units under construction.

Several deals are being signed with major festival operators in the coming weeks, according to the company.

Renting a flat-packed, modular six-person flat will cost around £650 a week.

Investors in the project include British Design Fund, Monzo co-founder Tom Blomfield and former Gü chief executive Sarah Jones.

Talking to BBC News Last year, Amber said that the “problem of the times” of queuing for the toilet was “wasting hours of a woman’s life”.

“We see this as a change in behavior, but it is a more effective way of doing it,” she said.

“At the beginning of the day you might look at this woman’s urinal and be like ‘I’m not sure about that’ but after a few talks, and after you’ve waited in line for 15 minutes – the option This suddenly becomes much more engaging.”
