Italian term or phrase: profili a parete piena
Si parla di costruzioni in acciaio. E' l'offerta fatta da un produttore ad un potenziale acquirente.

"STRUTTURA PORTANTE. Travi secondarie solaio in profili a parete piena, fissate mediante squadrette e bulloni alle travi principali."

E ancora:
"Colonne in profilo a parete piena, fissate inferiormente alle fondazioni mediante piastra di base e relativi bulloni di fondazione."

Grazie in anticipo per qualsiasi aiuto.

PS Potrebbe essere "solid wall profiles"? Forse è troppo semplice.

solid-webbed beam/girder/profile ???
Explanation:
A translation I've just done on a new bridge in Venice points out that in Italy triangulated/spaceframe/latticed steelwork is more common than in the rest of Europe, to the point that a bridge, which was designed by French engineers, was changed by the Italians who replaced many of the welded solid-webbed girders etc. by bolted lattice girders.

"Web" is the central section of an I or H beam. I should be "anima" in Italian, however, if my dictionary is anything to go by.
