Explanation: 'gable' has been itching for some time now and now I found the answer:
'gable' is used for 'gavel' (several dictionaries (Engström, Ernst...))when you're talking about a house or similar construction.
'end cap' is used by one of the leading manufacturers, Plastmo at e.g. www.plastmo-ltd.com
