Try Accurate Dorwin (204/982-4640) for pultruded fiberglass farmes and
highly selective coatings & lowe windows.

Run Windows 4.1 (Lawrence Berkley Labs 510/486-5606) for glazing, thermal
break, shading issues.
or try http://www.eren.doe.gov/buildings/tools_directory/

Look at selective window films instead of Window Quilt.
