Spanish term or phrase: caída
From documents from Spain for translation to British English.

Seems to be part of a horizontally sliding or a vertical travel door, examples:

Sliding door:
"Unir ambas partes de la guía encajando la pieza PE de la caída (soltando previamente el tornillo que la sujeta a la guía)"
"Fijar la escuadra de unión con el tornillo que había quedado en el aire y sujetar la caída con el tornillo que habíamos quitado previamente"
"Comprobar que, en el momento de la caída de la hoja, en posición cerrada, los burletes presionen contra el marco y contra la solera."
"La rueda ha de quedar apoyada en la caída, haciendo tope"

Vertical door:
"Fijar las caídas mediante un tornillo rosca chapa para asegurar su posición si en algún momento se requiere retirar la hoja."
"Marcar un punto en la caída que no moleste a la rueda y sea accesible."
