    From the occupational Health and Safety Plan of a building site:

    Las escaleras de mano a utilizar en esta obra sobrepasarán en 0,90 m la altura a salvar. Esta cota se medirá en vertical desde el plano de desembarco al extremo superior del larguero.

    This expression occurs in many specifications copied from a book by María Dolores Crespo Cortés, but I can't find an English version.

    The "plano de desembarco" is the disembarking level or surface (i.e., the deck), and the distance of 0.9 meters is measured from that surface to the top of the top rung or step.
