CAN SLEEPY SUNDAYS INSTANT BLACKOUT BE APPLIED TO ANY TYPE OF WINDOW?


Designed as a temporary blackout solution, Sleepy Sundays' Instant Blackout should not be applied to the windows permanently.

It can be applied to any flat, standard, clear (non-frosted), single or double glazed window. Installed when needed, and removed again once nap time is over. Each sheet can be stored on a hard, flat surface until needed again. This will help keep the static in the blackout sheets. 

  • For safety, the material should cover the entire window surface. This ensures the temperature of the window remains stable across the surface. It’s a very low risk, however, we need to flag it to prevent any windows from cracking.

  • Sleepy Sundays Instant Blackout should not be used on laminated, patterned, wired, opaque or velux glass surfaces. Feel free to email us at hello@sleepysundays.co for more information if necessary prior to purchase.

  • SAFETY INFORMATION: Sleepy Sundays has been designed as temporary blackout solution. Please don't not leave on permanently or in direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time. Before application, please ensure your windows are undamaged (no chips, cracks, weak or damaged edges), this is super important as in our warm climate using on these windows may cause thermal damage to the glass. 
  • DISCLAIMER: We're  always happy to answer any questions you may have, so please read above notes for glass compatibility, or reach out if you're not sure.  Please note, that Sleepy Sundays Pty Ltd will not be held liable for any damage caused to glass from our blackout film film being used incorrectly. 

HOW DO I INSTALL THEM?

Sleepy Sundays Instant Blackout Blinds are super easy to install and create a complete blackout.

  • Store your Sleepy Sundays Instant Blackout Blinds in a cool, dry place until needed. Each roll contains 25 sheets of 600mm x 800mm instant blackout material.

  • Ensure your window is clean and free from dust and sticky fingerprints.

  • Gently tear or cut along the perforation line, cut to size for smaller windows, or overlap on larger window surfaces to create complete darkness in seconds. Ensure the entire window is completely covered leaving no gaps.

  • Once no longer required, simply remove from the window, save for later, or recycle. The material is 100% recyclable.

**Please note, when cleaning windows please don't use any product that is designed to leave a film on the glass (eg Windex) as this may impact the static charge and prevent the sheets from clinging well.  


HOW LONG WILL THEY LAST?

When installed correctly onto clean, dry windows the static can hold for months – even in hot and humid conditions. Sleepy Sundays Instant Blackout material is designed for temporary use, however, and should not be left on windows permanently or in prolonged direct sunlight. It’s quick and easy to install and remove, so can be taken down in the mornings and put back up when it’s snooze time.

  • The static can be re-charged by rubbing over it with a micro-fiber or nylon cloth allowing each sheet to be reused if necessary. If using again the same day, store flat on a wall or door when not in use, or if needed at a later date, roll up and put back in the travel bag until needed.

  • The sheets will crease over time with exposure to the sun and depending on how much care is taken, each sheet should be able to be re-used and re-charged at least 3 times.

  • Once finished with each sheet, discard in your recycle bin as the material is 100% recyclable.

WILL IT MARK OR DAMAGE MY WINDOWS?

Sleepy Sundays are made from a statically charged polypropylene material. It will stick to any smooth, flat glass surface without the need of an adhesive. No glue, no suction caps, no water or tape, just static.

  • The blackout material won’t leave any residue on your windows, however, we do state that for safety, the material should cover the entire window surface and not be in direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time. This ensures on those extra hot (or freezing cold!) days the temperature of the window remains stable across the surface. It’s a very low risk, however, we need to flag it to prevent any windows from cracking.

  • Designed as a temporary blackout solution, sheets can be installed and removed in seconds. Overlap for bigger windows and cut to size for smaller window spaces.
