Tech/Engineering - Engineering: Industrial / bio-decontamination
French term or phrase: sas imprimante

I'm translating a doc about bio-decontamination with H2O2
For the procedure, there are certain objects to be removed from the rooms to be bio-decontaminated and some that can be left such as "papier plastifié" and "sas imprimante", does anybody know what "sas" is here?

Thank you.

Asker: Thanks Patricia, so this is a type of printer?

neutral  chris collister: I don't think so. S.A.S. is like "Ltd", or "Inc.", hence Novexx solutions S.A.S. "Sas" would have a different meaning in your context, though clearly involving printers.

neutral  philgoddard: It means sociéte par actions simplifiée.

disagree  Tony M: In addition, that wouldn't reflect the normal word order. But as Chris says, this is nothing to do with a brand that might be called 'SAS', and taking it to 'label printer' is frankly wildly over-translating.

printer lobby area

The best translation for 'sas' will depend on the configuration of the actual room-spaces involved.

I'm convinced this is just another of the spaces being discussed; especially with the little clue of that colon after 'sas imprimante'

  -> Thanks, Phil!

neutral  Debora Blake: I don't think the use of "lobby" is correct.

  -> There's really no way we can tell without proper context; but 'lobby' is certainly one translation of 'sas', where there is not actual technical function as an 'airlock'; of course, there are several other possibilities too...
