facings
Explanation:
After a long search, this is my best suggestion.
I guess "architrave" would be translated differently.
"Facing" is one of those words that can have different meanings(including architrave) according to region etc. but generally means the visible part of a (door) frame. I assume that "mostre" and "contomostre" refer to the opening and closing sides of the door but these do not have different terms in English.
