Spanish term or phrase: cámara europea
Again, in the specs for windows manufactured in Spain.

"Funcionalidad y relación calidad precio similar a las de las carpinterías de cámara europea."

Is this a type of window design or does it refer to some kind of European regulation or standard? I've seen lots of refs to "ventanas de cámara europea" but cannot find an explanation.

"European chamber"
Explanation:
I'm sorry, I haven't been able to find anything better than this. The camara appears to be a cavity in the window frame.

Please see Spanish refs:

It should be noted that the shape and dimensions of cavities 10 and 14, as well as in general of the entire section bar of Fig. 1, are chosen so as to be able to use as moving and closing accessories, including the traditional system, components which can be installed by contrast and designed according to the cavity known as a "European chamber».

To this aim, at least one section bar contained in the structure of the shutter or frame bears arms with flanges on them that are facing each other. Together they form an open chamber called "the European chamber", into which one end of the additional section bar will fit, enabling the pieces to be fastened together. More particularly, each additional section bar bears two teeth that join with the flanges that bound the abovementioned open chamber in the shutter or frame's section bar. However, the base of the chamber always lies orthogonally to the pane or panel, and therefore the additional section bars cannot be joined frontally with regards to the fitting.

The chamber is also useful for joining a variety of accessories, such as hinges, and trimmings to the structure. For accessories and trimmings to be joined, however, screws or grains must usually be used that operate in contrast with the abovementioned flanges. Furthermore, the use of screws and grains entails higher production costs. Indeed, when screws are used, holes must be drilled into the section bar. This is less of a problem when grains are used, but it remains an inconvenience in that the accessories needed for fitting the grains are complicated in shape. Consequently, their cost increases

May be don't have this system for windows in the UK, or maybe I haven't managed to find the right info!
