Just an idea...
Explanation:
Guided load: in a lifting operation, a load that is controlled over the whole of the distance of its movement by physical/actual/real guides, rigid or flexible, their position being determined by fixed points.

As I read it, 'materialisé' here simply means that they are real, physical guides over the whole of the length of the movement (as distinct, for example, from posts at intervals) --- they might be bars, ropes, any number of things, depending on WHAT is being shifted and WHERE.

All it really means is that things being moved are to be held securely at all times by things that prevent them from moving out of place. See what i'm getting at?

Good luck!

Yes, Giulia, you HAVE to keep to general term, as this is talking in a very general way.

agree  xxxBourth: Yes, a lift or a hoist is a "charge guidée", but a concrete skip slung from a tower crane boom is not, even if an operative on the ground is hanging on to the end of a rope to help guide the skip.
