Explanation:
\"Masking of every indication suggestive of the modular construction (of the Portakabin) -- Carrying mounts - (to) conceal (masquer) the mounts with masking materials (caches) ....\" (Etc!!!)

Sounds like some really bad translation from an English-language instruction manual into French.

I hope this helps.

\"Carrying mounts\" backtranslates as \"supports de transport\". Is this what \"montants de portage\" means in this context?

Whatever, I hope you find an appropriate translation.
