protective plate (apron, curtain, blinds)
Explanation:
This is a technical term, but in my opinion Prallscheibe could be used in architecture to denote some kind of protection (e.g. against sun rays). Anyway it should be a protective apron, or curtain, blinds

In the end I used "outer pane" but I don't have enough confidence to put it into the glossary for others to use.
