English translation:+ (temporary) reserve capacity for 3 modules
Explanation:
A trame (module) is a basic "building block" of design and layout. It means that offices say, can be laid out to a certain dimension (that of the module) or multiples thereof, without having conflicts with window/wall/column interfaces, provision of power and lighting, etc.

I think "surpuissance" means that the normal motors will provide the extra air flow, but only by operating above their nominal regime, so presumably this is for short periods only.

And \"fresh air\" of course.

Fresh air - frisk luft - Aussenluft, Frischluft - aire exterior, aire fresco - air frais, air neuf, etc.
