English term or phrase: super metro (Straßenbau)
Similar to my previous request,
'super metro silenced' comes up in a list of
terms for demolition tools (breakers).

Thanks for your help.

German translation:hochwertiger Schallschutz für städtische Umgebungen
Explanation:
I think what they mean here is a high (super) sound-dampening for urban (metro = metropolitan) surroundings. It gets sort of long in German, but I don't think there is a shorter way of saying it.

Explanation:
This sounds like a brand name for a power tool - in this case with a muffler or dampening of sorts.

Maybe capital letters? "Super Metro - silenced"?

HTH a bit...
