“Curtains provide warmth and colour, both important factors for a healing environment. Curtains also allows control of daylight –important for autonomy. Using specially designed textiles provide even better sound absorbent qualities. The patented J-Trac curtain rail system is self-harm and suicide resistant. It is designed to hinder attachment of for instance a string or similar to create a ligature.
A bathroom with a ligature resistant shower curtain not only creates a less institutional environment, it also enables personal integrity. Being able to offer a shower curtain makes life more practical for the patient/client and provides better hygiene control and security.”
