How can glass doors have analytical properties like windows?

Hi,

 

Does anyone know how to make a set of double glass doors, like for a shopping center on the ground floor, have analytical properties like windows?  For now, I only know how to set the U value, but I can't specify solar heat gain coefficients like I can with windows.  I'm reluctant to just make windows for my doors because of the way it will look, but is it my only hope?

Have you considered using a Curtain System with windows as the 'door panels'?

Yeah, but then I couldn't figure out how to not have the curtain wall stretch all the way from the floor to the top...
