si usano per lavorare nei cantieri, se si pitturano dei muri per es. Ho trovato un "trestle bridge" in giro ma non so se è la stessa cosa.

Lost in translation....

Allora, la definizione di \"trestle\" e\' questa:

\\Tres\"tle\\, n. [OF. trestel, tresteay, F. tr[\'e]teau;
probably from L. transtillum a little crossbeam, dim. of
transtrum a crossbeam. Cf. Transom.] [Written also
tressel.]
1. A movable frame or support for anything, as scaffolding,
consisting of three or four legs secured to a top piece,
and forming a sort of stool or horse, used by carpenters,
masons, and other workmen; also, a kind of framework of
strong posts or piles, and crossbeams, for supporting a
bridge, the track of a railway, or the like.


Dato che si tratta di un ponteggio usato nei cantieri sarebbe meglio definirlo con:
TRESSEL SCAFFOLD. Vedi:
