Spanish term or phrase: hueco luz
door manual installation instructions. First item on the list of things to do during the installation process: prepare the 'hueco luz'...
Is this the 'light shaft' or something?
All help much appreciated.

After Nedim's downgrade, I insist in my version. See last sentence in following reference (this "hueco luz" simply cannot be in the ceiling):

disagree  Nedim Sahovic: that's not "hueco luz", because it is usually used for ceiling openings, not doors...

agree  JoLuGo: wide range of rolling door systems. Whether you need to close large spans, control fire. Span->Claro->Luz Distancia entre apoyos

  -> Gracias, JoLuGo. Sin embargo me convencí que mi respuesta es incorrecta. Hueco luz no es el hueco ANTES de colocar la puerta, sino la superficie efectiva de vidrio, u otro material transparente o translúcido, que deje pasar luz DESPUES de instalada.
