Correct English Names For Different Concrete Constructions

Correct English Names For Different Concrete Constructions

Correct English Names For Different Concrete Constructions

Hello dear friends, I am new member of eng-tips forum.

I am from Georgia and work as a Marketing and Product Development Manager at one of the biggest concrete constructions manufacturing company in Caucasus.

In Georgia (and all over Caucasus) it is hard to communicate with colleagues who does not know Georgian or Russian languages. The reason is that we know construction names only by those languages, but we do not know how constructions are named in English.

Hope you can help me with this issue, so our regions could cooperate and develop further communication.

I will place pictures of our products as attachments, so if you can, please help me and tell how the constructions are named in English.

Thanks a lot,
Davit Tsintsadze

I suspect in Russian language all of the items are going by the same name smile (Sorry, just couldn't resist)

2 looks like a manhole lid, complete with cover.
3 may be a precast fence panel, sound wall panel, or similar.
6 looks like a drainage ditch section, shown inverted.
7 could be a counterweight section for a crane.
8 is a base for an umbrella or sign.
9 are probably precast poles, possibly for lighting.
