French term or phrase: Tunnels légers
I am looking for the correct equivalent other than "light" or 'small" "tunnels" (unless that is the correct term), this is for ventilation and dust accumulation control specifications in a factory. The complete sentence reads:

Classe d’empoussièrement à 800 000 + Tunnels légers (idem Trnava) sur toutes les zones

Thanks!

lightweight tunnels
Explanation:
Don't know that this would be the approved term in the industry, but maybe they are plastic tunnels similar to those used in horticulture, only used in this context to keep dust out (with filtered air blown into them at a slightly higher temp. than the air outside).
