Italian to English translations [PRO]
Tech/Engineering - Architecture / Airport construction
Italian term or phrase: tamponature
The term appears in this context:

"Sul lato landside le facciate sono caratterizzate da ***tamponature*** con pannelli in c.a. prefabbricati e dalla presenza di una pensilina, che corre lungo tutto il fronte di accosto della viabilità, realizzata con una struttura in carpenteria metallica con forma di arco."

The definition in Italian of "tamponamento" which appears to be a synonym is as follows:
"riempimento, chiusura dei vani di una struttura con pannelli o muri non portanti".

This sounds like "casing" to me. Has anyone else translated this term? Thank you for your help.

Notes to answerer

Asker: Thanks for helping me on this query, Desertfox! In the end, I decided to go with "cladding", since the context seems to describe the kinds of "coverings" used, rather than "sealings" proper.
