Sun Zero Extreme Blackout technology is laboratory tested to block out 100% of light, reduce outside noise by up to 35%, and decrease energy lost through your windows by up to 50%. Comfort is optimized with thermal properties that help keep summer heat and winter chill out of your home. Hang in your entertainment room to eliminate screen glare and reduce distracting outside noise, or in your bedroom for enhanced privacy and a sounder, more uninterrupted sleep.

Tumble dry on low heat, using a cool iron as needed.
