Tetcon Tear-Resistant Anti-Suicide Pillow (Navy Blue)
The Tetcon Tear-Resistant Anti-Suicide Pillow (Navy Blue) is made with a non-removeable cover that prevents the stripping down or ripping apart of the fabric for the purposes of self-harm. The pillow is made with stiff but comfortable fabric that cannot be rolled or manipulated into a noose or rope, making it a comfort essential for suicidal and at-risk individuals.
How Does a Suicide Pillow Work?
A suicide pillow uses thick, tear-resistant fabric that cannot be torn, cut, ripped or split. Designed for use with at-risk individuals who may harm themselves, the Tetcon Anti-Suicide Pillow uses a non-removeable cover to prevent access to the inside of the pillow.
This helps minimise the risk of self-harm and suicide in incarceration and healthcare facilities, where at-risk patients require a high duty of care.
Dignified, Safe and Secure Design
Designed to give at risk people a safe and secure pillow for the night, the Tetcon Anti-Suicide Pillow resembles a traditional squared cushion, and has no discerning features that identify it as a medical item.

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.
