German term or phrase: Lasteintragung
The text in question has to do with a notification of impediments causing delays to construction. Here, the contractors need more information on wall covering specifications. I'm not sure exactly what is meant here, other than "load / weight distribution". Any ideas on how to make this sound right would be greatly appreciated.


Wir brauchen dringend konkrete Angaben, insbesondere zu den Anforderungen an die darunter liegenden Wänden, zwecks Aufnahme bzw. Lasteintragungen von vorgenannten Wandbelägen usw.

agree  Ken Cox: and probably wall cladding in this case

agree  Steffen Walter: Yes, definitely. I'd also have thought of "application of loads" but this option seems to be ruled out by the "von..." sentence structure.

agree  Michael Harris

agree  Jonathan MacKerron: Leo suggests "loading"
1 hr

agree  Andrew D: with Steffen, Lasteintrag is usually application or excertion of loads, here it could be "we urgently need details, especially concerning the requirements of the walls ..., regarding the possible application of loads like the wall coverings etc"

agree  Kcda: ...weight distribution might also work (gen. engineering). CFG of a vehicle when not empty is calculated using "loading" (payload) positioning (distribution). In this case it is the weights/pressure the walls have to withstand. Not interchangeable terms?
