French term or phrase: carcasse en DD micro 2 bruns
I am translating some product specifications intended for suppliers of different types of "PLV" (POS displays) to a major French cosmetics firm. The following text appears in the "Technical Specifications" section. I'm having difficulty figuring out what the following description means: "Miser en volume sur une carcasse en DD micro 2 bruns avec lest en médium" (see below for complete context).
So far, I've managed to glean the following info from previous kudos qu's:
"Assembly/folded over a XXXX XXXX frame (?) with medium ballast."
I guess the part I'm struggling most with is "en DD micro 2 bruns", but I'd appreciate your help with the other parts of the sentence if you can! Many thanks!

here's the entire section:

Many thanks in advance!

"DD" does not appear to be the code used in English, funnily enough. I would have assumed these things were standardized.

They also speak of "DOUBLE-WALL corrugated board" for this, but still no sign of "DD".
