French term or phrase: sols plombants
This is a spec sheet issued by a specialist flooring manufacturer. It lists the hospital environments that its products are designed for. The list is just a bulleted list and no further specific context is provided. One of the bullets (uses) is **sols plombants**
I've trawled the web but am none the wiser.
Any clues from anyone?
Many thanks as always :-)
