Spanish term or phrase: Bimbel
This word appears on a building quote in the sentence:

M2 Desmontar bimbeles perimetrales, limpieza del paramento y preparación con mortero para recubrir las telas.

I have found a definition of what bimbel means in Spanish (Elemento que cubre la entrada de ventilación perimetral de una azotea a la catalana), but I have no idea how to translate the term in English.

Any ideas?

Many thanks!

Reference: "bimbel perimetral" with images

Reference information:
in this reference on page 5 there are 5 images in the top of three rows illustrating 5 examples of "bimbel perimetral":

apparently "bimbel" translates into Catalan as "minvell":

18 Jul 2011 – ... ***aislado del exterior gracias a un cordón perimetral de sellado. ..... catalanes se empeñan en traducir el minvell por bimbel***, pero no he ...

in Catalan "minvell" appears to be defined as:

minvell - Institut d'Estudis Catalans - Diec2
dlc.iec.cat/results.asp?txtEntrada=minvell...0

GDLC - minvell

***minvell. [de minvar]. m CONSTR 1 Rajola encastada al peu d'una paret, formant un lleuger pendent, que protegeix el junt constituït pel parament vertical i el sòl***.

again from Catalonia there is an intepretation of "bimbel" as "bateagua":

There is also a definition:

"Rajola encastada al peu d'una paret, formant un lleuger pendent, que protegeix el junt constituït pel parament vertical i el sòl"

Which translates as:

"baldosa encastrada al pie de una pared, formando una ligera pendiente que protege la junta entre el paramento [pared] vertical y el suelo"
