Italian term or phrase: piantoni per sponde
Si tratta di rimorchi e semirimorchi.

"XXX ha presentato nel proprio stand i nuovi piantoni per sponde xxx, innovativi in quanto evitano il rischio di apertura accidentale della sponda grazie ad un sistema che elimina le vibrazioni"

Potrebbe trattarsi di "sidewall posts"?

Grazie in anticipo per qualsiasi aiuto.
