    Salve vorrei sapere come tradurreste "Gallerie a fondo cieco".

    Potrebbe andare bene: "Blind end galleries"?


    Contesto:
    "In caso sia necessario operare in gallerie a fondo cieco verranno installati alcuni ventilatori secondari che realizzeranno, da una tubazione flessibile, una ventilazione premente sul fronte".

    TRADUZIONE:
    "In case is necessary to work in galleries a fondo cieco will be installed some secondary fans that will carry out, by a flexible piping, a pressing ventilation on the front".

    Grazie!

    It sounds like recommendations for extra ventilation for working in enclosed spaces. We also use the term "confined space" in our workplace documents. However, gallerie a fondo cieco could be:

    Blind gallery/hallway
    Dead end gallery/hallway
    Closed end gallery/hallway

    There may be others but you could use any of these.

    Hmm, not so sure about dead-end galleries. Sounds like a place artists go to die...:cool: I think Phil was on the right track with enclosed spaces. What about simply "Enclosed areas with no exit will have additional ventialtion provided with..."

    rrose,

    Is galleria/e one of those false friends? I was thinking in terms of a hallway, passageway, or other rather limited space.

    Yes I think so, in the end blind tunnel is probably the best.
