Without a double neckline facing for extra comfort

Many tear resistant t-shirts have a double neckline facing. This is heavy and uncomfortable for the wearer. This kind of neckline facing is often used because, in many cases, the tear strength of the fabric used is relatively low. Therefore, heavy stitching techniques are required to make a tear-resistant t-shirt.

Thanks to the high tear strength of the Tricot Extreme Line, this kind of double neckline facing becomes a thing of the past. So you create much more comfort for the client.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What’s a tear-resistant t-shirt?

    A tear-resistant t-shirt is a garment made of a tear-resistant fabric. This is used in psychiatric facilities, detention facilities, separation cells, and behavioral health facilities. A tear-resistant t-shirt prevents individual patients or inmates from ending up in unsafe situations when they show tearing or aggressive behavior. Or when they are on suicide watch. Thanks to the tear-resistant fabric, the client is prevented from tearing the clothing, which can then be used to make a hanging mechanism or weapon.
