Construction / Civil Engineering / sécurité
English term or phrase: pilon
Contexte : le terme anglais "pilons" est utilisé pour décrire la catégorie d'équipement servant à avertir les gens d'un danger (on mentionne entre autres les cônes fluorescents et les panneaux repliables). Or, "pilon" ne semble pas être un mot anglais et je ne le trouve nulle part. Étrange... Des idées?
