German term or phrase: Umleimer
I am translating a website for a company that makes mobile stages, folding tables etc. They are talking about the "Umleimer fuer Tischplatten." I am not sure what we would call these in English. I have found "Anleimer," which they also refer to and this appears in proz as "edge bands." Has anyone any ideas for Umleimer?
