    Yes. Probably custom as window sizes are all over the place these days. The drop can usually be adjusted by the user on-site, but the width . . .

    Try Spotlight, they carry a range, though I can't guarantee sizes.
    Some can be trimmed to width as well, so if you get one a bit oversize, you can trim it down. If you're real keen, they are not that hard to dismantle and cut down, but you don't want to make the old 100mm too short trick.
    Good luck
