How Does an Anti-Suicide Blanket Work?

A suicide blanket is designed for use with highly at-risk patients who have been assessed as a risk to themselves. Individuals who are likely to self-harm or attempt suicide need an additional level of care when in a facilities such as prisons, hospitals or rehabilitation centres, where safer alternative blankets, clothing and pillows are necessary.

The Tetcon Weighted Suicide Blanket is made from highly durable tear-resistant fabric that cannot be torn, cut, ripped or split. This means that the Tetcon Anti-Suicide Blanket cannot be rolled into a noose or torn apart to form a strangulation device.

Dignified, Safe and Secure

Designed to give at risk people a warm and comfortable blanket for the night, the Tetcon Anti-Suicide Blanket resembles a traditional blanket that you'd likely find in a hospital or a prison. It is slightly weighted and has no discerning features that identify it as a medical item.

Where Are Tetcon Suicide Prevention Blankets Used?

Because of their inobtrusive design and effectiveness, the Tetcon Anti-Suicide range can be found in professional settings like:

  • Hospitals
  • Assisted Living Complexes
  • Healthcare Facilities
  • Prisons
  • Sober Living Facilities
  • Jails
  • Rehabilitation Facilities
  • Mental Health Institutions
  • Visitation Centres
  • Halfway Houses
  • Homeless Shelters

Increased Strength Wash After Wash

Unlike other fabrics, the thick, rigid material that is necessary for use in the construction of an Anti-Suicide Pillow actually gets stronger with every wash. This is because the threads are incredibly thick, meaning that when they get wet and subsequently dry out, the threads become even more rigid and tense, adding to their protective properties.

Tear and Puncture-Resistant Fabric

If a patient is a suicide risk, it's vital they are prevented from accessing any material or substance that they could potentially use to cause harm to themselves or a caregiver. This fabric is highly tear-resistant to prevent the patient or user aggressively splitting the fabric to gain access to the stuffing material inside.

Safety First

Providing care for at-risk patients and incarcerated individuals means a higher threshold for guarding against the potential for suicide and self-harm. The Tetcon Anti-Suicide Navy Blanket is all about keeping the individual safe at all times, as the design features listed below demonstrate:

  • Cannot be rolled into a noose
  • Tear-resistant fabric prevents splitting fabric to form a strangulation device
  • Durable outer coating protects the blanket during an outburst of aggression
  • Fire-retardant coating prevents accidents with lighters and matches

Fire-Retardant Cover

The Tetcon Anti-Suicide Blanket features a fire-retardant cover that prevents combustion in the unfortunate event of contact with an open flame from a match or lighter.
