Window Naming convention question?

volume11inc

hello, hoping to learn the proper name of the lower section of windows near ankles in a retail storefront context...

Base Level-Lower Glazing-Kickplate Zone

Transom windows are above door height...(sidelights, adjacent)

Then what will name be for spot in bottom area ???

Isn't that your "Base Level-Lower Glazing-Kickplate Zone"?

I get it, you're asking for a recognized term; I'm not sure there is one. I might use "bulkhead zone glazing," especially in the context of commercial storefronts.

Yeah right, maybe in an office curtain wall setting, but a retail storefront context? Fat chance.
