Summary of Blackout Curtain Features

Materials and Care

Sleepout Curtains are made from a plush blend of cotton flocking and a soft microfiber finish. They incorporate cutting-edge Thermaguard™ fabric that effectively blocks heat and noise, making them an ideal companion for serene sleep. Moreover, they are non-toxic and care for them is a breeze – just machine wash on a delicate cycle with cold water and mild detergent, then machine dry on a delicate cycle.

On the other hand, BoxelFOS Curtains are made from polyester with a solar reflective coating. While this does assist with heat reflection, it doesn't have the same comfort or sound-blocking benefits of Sleepout's Thermaguard™ fabric. Care instructions suggest wiping them with a damp towel, which might not be as effective in cleaning as a proper machine wash.


Sleepout Curtains instill confidence in their customers with a one-year warranty, providing peace of mind with regards to durability and quality. Unfortunately, BoxelFOS does not specify any warranty details, leaving customers unsure about after-sales service and support.

Additional Qualities

Sleepout Curtains go beyond just blocking light. They offer thermal insulation and sound-blocking features, providing an environment conducive to deep, undisturbed sleep. BoxelFOS Curtains do offer 100% blackout, but do not advertise any thermal or sound-blocking features, making Sleepout Curtains the superior choice for a more restful sleep.


Sleepout Curtains are equipped with two BPA-free industrial-strength suction cups and strong, reliable fastener strips, ensuring a firm grip and ease of installation and removal. BoxelFOS, meanwhile, uses hook & loop tabs for installation. While this can be convenient, it may not offer the same level of flexibility and sturdiness as Sleepout's innovative suction cup design.

Portable Blackout Curtains: An Insight into Your Options

The defining characteristics of high-quality portable blackout curtains include potent light blocking, user-friendly design, impressive thermal insulation, and robust sound-blocking properties. It is evident that Sleepout Curtains stand out in these areas due to their Thermaguard™ fabric and inventive construction. Furthermore, Sleepout Curtains are distinguished by their unique certifications from OEKO-TEX®, SGS®, and Greenguard®, testifying to their superior non-toxic, safe, and high-quality nature. The lack of these standout features and credentials in BoxelFOS curtains places them a step behind in the competition.
