Spanish term or phrase: carrera
Puertas con carrera de 860 y 860 mm. This is the amount of travel or movement the door has-what would be the exact term
keith
English translation:Run, Lift, opening
Explanation:
This depends on exactly what type of door this is. If it is a sliding door i would be tempted to use run - to describe the size of the door opening. Also if it is a door which moves on an upward - use lift. But generally I would use opening as it refers to the size of the door's opening.
