The tear-resistant blanket is designed to find a balance between comfort and safety for psychiatric patients and inmates. The soft material could stimulate the reduction of stress. The weight of the blanket also creates a weighted effect.
The blankets are quilted with strong and powerful yarns to make the product as safe as possible. With its unrivalled tear strength, the ‘molest resistance’ is extremely high. And that is not all. The Tricot Extreme blanket actually gets stronger the more you use it. In fact, its tear strength increases after 5 washes.
The blanket, also known as a suicide prevention blanket, offers warmth and comfort without you having to compromise on safety. While we have combined a heavy fabric and proper stepping techniques, you reduce the chances of inmates or patients being able to use the blanket as a weapon or hanging mechanism.
Comfort is an important element to avoid dangerous situations. Many tear resistant blankets feel stiff, rough and uncomfortable. They also often do not absorb body fluids and sweat. This could stimulate escalation. Especially if patients or inmates show signs of aggressive or complex behaviour. All these stimuli can aggravate the situation.
As a result, the softness of this anti-tear blanket is a unique feature. This allows you to implement a preventive approach to promote de-escalation.
The tear resistant blankets of the Tricot Extreme Line are available in navy-blue and in white. This allows you to always choose a colour that suits the needs of your facility.
