Tech/Engineering - Engineering: Industrial / rail car assembly
French term or phrase: masque de bout
Rail car windshield specification.
"Le pare brise ne sera pas collées [sic] directement sur la structure mais montées [re-sic] sur un cadre qui est fixé à la structure de manière à faciliter le démontage et limiter le temps d'échange. Le *masque de bout* (en matériaux composites, d‘épaisseur encore non définie) sera comprimé entre le cadre du pare brise et la structure de l‘autorail."

Anyone heard of this? Or might it be a typo/transcription error?

Thanks in advance
David
