Italian term or phrase: sacco molle
In a catalogue for parete divisori:

Brand X è integrabile con le pareti Y e Z questo permette, utilizzando
insieme i diversi sistemi, di dare al Progettista ed al Cliente la possibilità di ottenere risultati estetici e tecnologici di indubbio
livello oltre che, viste le certificazioni di caduta laterale *sacco molle*,
garantire la massima sicurezza e consentire coperture assicurative per
eventi fortuiti.

The concept is clear. But what, pray tell, might sacco molle be?

Anyone?
Many thanks

Explanation:
Hi Bambi!
Sounds to me like the bag-drop test.
Here's an example of its use in the furniture business, but I've also heard it used in other sectors.
It basically refers to testing the item's behavior when subject to impact.

The first site even has a picture!
"Pictures from left to right: The Arm Stress Test, The Leg Stress Test, The Bag Drop Test, The Steam Endurance Test."
