Explanation:
Non sono sicuro se ti servirà bene questa spiegazione, ma il mio Dizionario Tecnico IT-EN descrive solo un «volo a nastro verticale rivoltato», oppure un «outside loop» in inglese. Dunque, potrebbe questa parola riferirsi in inglese ad un tale dispositivo più piccolo a cui viene in contatto il tuo van? Buona fortuna - Gary!
