|French term or phrase: pose en applique/tableau|
|This is a description of two kinds of batardeaux (which I have as cofferdams) one of which is decribed as being mounted or fixed 'en applique' and the other 'en tableau'|
I've been scratching my head on this so long that each possible answer I come up with is more ludicrous than the last!

Although the principles for hydraulic gates would be much the same, I doubt the following terminology, which applies to cabinet doors and - why not? - building doors, would apply to them.
En applique would be "overlay" and en tableau "inset". A few others for good measure!
Frameless cabinets, often called Euro-style cabinets, can take only a FULL OVERLAY door. Framed cabinets take any one of several door types: OVERLAY (also called reveal); FULL OVERLAY (sometimes, and confusingly, simply called overlay), LIPPED and INSET. Each door-type offers a distinctive look and, if you're building your kitchen cabinets, necessitates unique construction techniques [ ... ]
• When you pick up a cabinet frame before attachment to the carcass, it looks just like an empty picture frame. If you then make a door that has the same dimensions as the outer dimensions of the frame, you will have A FULL OVERLAY door. You won't see the frame at all until you open the door. You also can make a door that's a little smaller than the frame; when you close this smaller door, it will reveal part of the frame, hence the name "reveal."
• You can also make a door with the same dimensions as the inside frame dimensions, then fit this door inside the frame, making an INSET DOOR or drawer. Alternatively, you can cut a rabbet, basically a small cutout, around the four edges of the back of a drawer. The door, slightly larger than the inside dimensions of the frame, now fits partially into the door-frame and partially over it, making a LIPPED door.
