 German term or phrase: Abstand I am trying to figure out the correlation between the two intervals cited in the following sentence: Im Abstand von höchstens 2,5 m sind jeweils zwei Bandstahlringe 5/ 60 mm mit einem Abstand von 25 cm in der Bewehrung anzuordnen und an diese Ringe entsprechende Bügel d = 16 mm als Abstandhalter anzuschweißen. Thanks in advance. By the way, context is designing a pile foundation.
