Bus/Financial - Manufacturing / PLV (POS displays)
French term or phrase: Platines
I am translating some product specifications intended for suppliers of different types of "PLV" (POS displays) to a major French cosmetics firm. The word "platine" appears in the "Technical Specifications" section. It's obviously a type of POS display (the others listed here are: vitrines; totems; presentoirs and pancartes). Another thing I know is that this type of POS display is also fairly small, as further down in the same document there's a diagram of how to stack it on a pallet and the boxes are smaller than for the other kinds of PLV.

Thanks for any help you can give. Here's the context:
