Window nets were designed to keep things out of the drivers compartment. Most chassis are to open on the sides to allow for the proper use of a net. As Purplerail suggested you could custom make one should you feel the need.
In my days of racing I never liked window nets, one more thing in the way to get out quick.

i had one. I hated it. it KILLS your vision. and if you dont get it right, and you roll over, it can break off, which in turn is more dangerous. I am not saying by any means not to try it, but with my expierence i didnt like it. i cut it off after 2 rides

I used one in a race this year and I felt it was a PITA to deal with. One time on one time off. :|
