The Ultimate Blackout Cellular Shade

Research shows that sleeping in a dark, quiet room can help manage your sleep, your mood and your energy, and help you wake up feeling refreshed and alert. SlumberShades combine energy efficient and insulating blackout cellular shades with a light blocking sidetrack, creating a amazingly dark room for a long, deep and restful night of sleep. For optimum blackout we recommend Symphony & Premiere Blackout Fabrics.

SlumberShades™ Fabric

SlumberShades™ are available with Premiere Blackout, Baritone Blackout, Symphony Blackout and Virtuoso Blackout fabric collections. Symphony, Virtuoso and Debut Light Filtering fabrics are also available as SlumberShades, however the best light control is achieved when selecting a blackout cellular fabric.

Energy Efficiency

Get a good night sleep and don’t worry about your utility bill with SlumberShades. Independent testing** has shown SlumberShades provide an R-value greater than 7.0 when installed over a double paned vinyl window. The testing indicates that the R-value of a SlumberShade is 2.5 to 3 times higher than that of the same shade without sidetracks. ** Independent testing provided by Consortium for Advanced Residential Buildings (CARB), a U.S. Department of Energy Building America research team.

Energy Saving Blackout Sidetracks

Made from a durable window grade PVC, the energy saving blackout sidetracks seal off the gap between the blackout cellular shade and the window to create a light blocking barrier. The exclusive SlumberShade sidetrack system seals tight around the window frame, without the light gaps you have with blackout curtains or other shades.Tracks are available in three colors: white, tan or bronze and are removable for cleaning.

Light Absorbing Technology

The co-extruded blackout sidetracks are black lined to absorb incoming light. The inside of the sidetrack facing the room remains white for visual aesthetics.When properly installed, Slumbershades block 99% of all visible light. In certain installations with intense sunlight, a very small amount of light may reflect around the edges of the honeycomb fabric along each side of the shade. This is a normal attribute of the Slumbershade system.

SlumberShade End Caps

The specially designed notched bottom rail end caps fit over the blackout sidetracks and allow for smooth movement when raising and lowering the shade.

Top Seal

To ensure the best possible dark sleeping environment, fuzzy seals are applied along the shade’s head rail. This barrier helps block out exterior light at the top of the shade.

Cellular SlumberShade™

While beautiful and pleasing to they eye, all Comfortex products are designed to be durable, easily cared for and easily cleaned. Our non-woven fabrics are inherently anti-static and repel dust, but occasional feather dusting or vacuuming may be necessary to keep fabrics clean and bright.

Spills and stains may be blotted with a cloth or damp sponge. More difficult stains may require soaking in water with mild soap. For this, remove the shades from the window and submerge, soak and rub lightly. Lay the shade flat to dry or place it back in the window and raise it tightly to recrisp the pleats. Please test any stronger cleaners on an unobtrusive portion of the shade before using.

Cleaning Room Darkening Fabrics:

SlumberShades™ fabric is easy to care for. The fabric can be dusted with a soft, clean cloth, feather duster or lightly vacuumed with a soft brush attachment. To spot clean, use a cloth or sponge dipped in a light solution of lukewarm water and clear dish detergent and lightly dab. Do not scrub the surface. Rinse thoroughly. Complete immersion in not recommended.
