The iconic 17,000-seat concert venue has installed an LED lighting system in its restrooms that shows guests which stalls are available while they’re waiting in between music sets.
Tooshlights, as the system is called, utilizes an ultrasonic sensor which is reliant on the stall’s dimensions to trigger a LED light to change to either a red or green color, which in turn signals venue attendees about the stall’s occupancy.
With partial installation already complete, the Bowl is scheduled to have the LED system installed in all of their public restrooms by 2014.
Allen Klevens, co-founder of the Newbury Park-based Tooshlights company, told KNX 1070’s Tom Haule the system is designed to expedite restroom wait times, enhance restroom security, and assure restroom privacy.
