Thanks so much for your response. I never would have guessed that the Gore product was stainless steel wire. It sure doesn't feel like it to the touch. And maybe the Gore name threw me off, what with Gortex fiber.
Surely someone has copied this product by now. It's been out for years, right? Here's what the Pella website says:
• Vivid View screens feature Gore™ Transparent Screen Fabric, a proprietary material developed by W.L. Gore and Associates, Inc.
• Gore is a leader in developing advanced technology products for the electronics, industrial, fabrics and medical markets
• The company is best known for consumer products like GORE-TEX® fabric and ELIXIR® guitar strings.
So if I definitely can't get this product, what is a close second? Are you familiar with Clear Advantage? Here's info on it:

I am in theWashington D.C. metro area, and it appears you are too. Any suggestions on who I might contact for help on this issue?
Thanks so much...
