Spanish term or phrase: aventanillado
Seems like I've had all the winners this week!
"hilo de seguridad metálico aventanillado (deberá ser incorporado durante el proceso de fabricación del papel)."

I'm sure this is talking about emberred "security" thread, but I can't prove it.
Thanks!

Explanation:
as though "through a window". jps2000 is accurate in describing the process, but if you need a translation of "aventanillado," I suggest this.

embedded/inscribed security thread


Explanation:
Inscribed Security Thread
A clear, inscribed polyester thread has been incorporated into the paper of genuine currency. The thread is embedded in the paper and runs vertically through the clear field to the left of the Federal Reserve seal on all notes except the $1 denomination. If it is decided to use the thread in the $1 denomination, it will be located between the Federal Reserve seal and the portrait.

Cordón de seguridad :
Hilo aventanillado en sentido vertical, a la izquierda del motivo principal del anverso y ocupando todo el ancho del billete a modo de franja, tiene una microimpresión que repite el título "CINCO MIL" en toda su extensión.
