French term or phrase: portes de visite
This appears in the following text to do with lighting.

Mât cylindro-conique en acier galvanisé type M-100 de 4,00 à 10,00 m de haut (avec 1 ou 2 portes de visite – en fonction du nombre de projecteurs).

I have translated it as "access doors". Any more accurate suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
