Spanish term or phrase: remates de menores dimensiones
Buenas:

Estoy traduciendo un texto para una compañía maderera y me encuentro en un punto donde se habla de la colocación de rastreles ("battens" en inglés) en un texto que trata sobre la instalación de tarimas exteriores. Tengo mis dudas sobre cómo traducir "remate". He encontrado múltiples equivalencias (finishing, finish, final touch, edging, edge...) pero no estoy nada seguro de cuál es la acertada. Os dejo el texto a ver si me podeís ayudar:

"En el perímetro del recinto se deben disponer los rastreles al objeto de proporcionar una superficie de apoyo a los remates de menores dimensionales."

He pensado que quizás "smaller edgings" pero como ya os digo, no lo tengo claro.

Gracias

English translation:Smaller-sized finishing details
Explanation:
For example. This is one of those occasions where you would need to ask someone who knows more about specific area, someone who works in it but not necessarily a translator, in order to know the right word for "remate" in this particular case. As you noticed, the dictionary isn't really helping. My suggestion "finishing details" should be broad enough to cover most angles, but it might not be the Goldilocks option.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Isn't the word sized repetitive here? Shouldn't smaller be enough?
