Catalan term or phrase: LPN & UPN
Some kind of metal joist, I think - again no context - just a list. "LPN 40.4"

If I remember correctly, LPN might be RSJ (rolled steel joist) - but if so, then what is the other abbreviation: UPN?

I know I have translated this before - 4 years or so ago - but I have just spent half an hour searching through old glossaries without any luck finding it. How come you never find the exact term you're looking for until after the deadline? :-(

Thanks for your help,

Berni

LPN & UPN
Explanation:
I cannot be sure but i think that UPN is an international abbrevation. It is used in all catalogs of industries that produce metallic joints.
The first letter (L, U, P) is used to describe the shape pf the intersection of such a beam (resembling a letter from the latin alphabet).
