We would like to re-introduce our FASTASLEEP Safety Blankets which has particular need within psychiatric institutions, young offenders' centres and custody suites and are recommended as the bedding choice for high risk individuals whose behavior is erratic and potentially suicidal.

Our royal blue Safety Blanket introduces new technology in its innovative design, using ultra-sonic welding it has 95% less stitching than its predecessor.

The rip-resistant blanket offers maximum protection and minimises the potential risks of self-harm as it cannot be formed into a ligature or noose.

It is permanently flame retardant and can be easily machine washed. The hems are reinforced in multiple layers of fabric and stitching with rounded corners.

Last week we had numerous enquiries for our Safety Blankets which resulted in 180 leaving the factory on Friday and more today!!
