The tear-resistant gown is made with Tetcon’s Tricot Extreme fabric. This fabric is soft, which suppresses aggression, and has an incredibly high tear resistance. That means that this gown ensures a perfect combination of safety and comfort. The gown is available in a one-size version, which is 125 cm long. Due to this length, the tear-resistant gown can be used for a large group of patients and inmates.

The Tricot Extreme fabric is inherently fire-retardant. The feature is incorporated into the fiber so that it won’t fade during washing.

This type of gown is also known as an anti-suicide gown or smock.

Tear resistant gowns in white

The gowns are also available in white color. This way you can always choose a colour that suits the needs of your organisation.

Visibility of blood

Camera surveillance in seclusion rooms is sometimes needed for patients who are on suicide watch.

On the white gowns, it will be much easier to detect blood on the cameras.

Without a double neckline facing

It’s pretty common to place a double neckline facing inside anti-suicide gowns. However, that can be uncomfortable for the wearer. This kind of neckline facing is usually needed because of the low tear strength of the fabrics used. Heavy stitching methods are needed to make suicide-prevention clothing safe to use.

Thanks to the extremely high tear resistance of the Tricot Extreme fabric, there’s no need for a double neckline facing. You will provide much greater comfort for the individual patient or inmate needing to wear the gown.


The fabric is hydrophilic, meaning that sweat and other body fluids are absorbed.

Fire retardant

The fabric is inherently fire-retardant.
