Tech/Engineering - Construction / Civil Engineering / Health & Safety plan
Dutch term or phrase: deurenwipper
"Tillen: Zoveel als mogelijk gebruik van mechanische til en transporthulpmiddelen (kraan, heftruck, verreiker, deurenwippers)"

This term appears in the above bullet in an H&S plan for a construction company. Any idea what a 'deurenwipper' is? TIA for your quick response. Cheers, R.
