Tech/Engineering - Construction / Civil Engineering / fixation limons par platine métallique en nez de dalle du plancher
French term or phrase: fixation limons
Hello, not being a specialist in construction, this one has me stumped;

fourniture et pose d’un escalier d’accès, métallique et marches bois,
droit simple et volées droites, fixation limons par platine métallique en nez de dalle du plancher

I see this as something like;

supply and installation of metal access stairway with wooden steps

but lost on "droit simple et volées droites, fixation limons par platine métallique en nez de dalle du plancher"

droit = stair uprights ?
volée droit = straight staircase ?
limons = stair stringer ??
nez de dalle : flush?

So this gives

Stair uprights on a straight staircase fixed with metallic plates flush with the floor

Not quite sure what sort of staircase this is, grateful for your help

stringers are anchored to/fixed to
Explanation:
I think they are using shorthand and mean "fixation des limons".

Stringers are anchored to the front of the slab using metal plates.
