English term or phrase: rock-props
Hola colegas: los consulto sobre este término, que en mi texto a traducir aparece como el nombre de un puesto: Rock-props category specialist.

Por lo que he podido encontrar, las "rock-props" son una especie de "rocas de utilería" (si traducimos literalmente) que se utilizan para la construcción de túneles en las minas. Por ejemplo:

Roof support:
As cleanup progresses roof support will be installed on 2.5' centers using rock props or 8"x8" square sets on both sides of the entry.

Si bien entiendo el concepto, no logro encontrar el equivalente en español. Gracias desde ya a quien pueda ayudarme. :D
