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.

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 at risk of suicide, it's vital they are prevented from accessing materials or substances 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.
A Safety First Design
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
