Outline

Norman's proprietary SmartPrivacy™ feature for blinds is a routeless feature that offers tighter closure and lower light leakage. It was first introduced in 2011 and received overwhelmingly positive feedback. Despite the success, this feature worked only for corded type blinds but not for blinds with cord loop system, which is more commonly used in Japan. After years of R&D effort, in late 2016 Norman had successfully integrated this feature into cord loop system by designing the control mechanism from grounds up. Light leakage is not going to be an issue for Japanese blinds users anymore.
