standard threshold
Explanation:
this would mean the threshhold is raised but not rebated because of a swing door, for instance. Rako refers to the gap seen under the door.

The gap is not visible in Marju's example - but it is there all the same.
Based on the example given, a better translation for rakokynnys would be ventilated threshold.
