Dutch term or phrase: sleeën
Context:

I am currently translating a website for an engineering firm, and am having problems with the above term.

The sentence is as follows:

[...] is gespecialiseerd in montage en demontage werkzaamheden. Door de vele veranderingen van eisen op zowel wettelijk- als milieugebied en de constante vraag naar innovatieve oplossingen vanuit de zijde van de opdrachtgevers, beschikken wij over een team welke constant bezig is met het vinden van passende oplossingen. Het spreekt voor zich dat hierbij gebruik wordt gemaakt van het modernste equipement en techniek, o.a. hijsen, rollen, vijzelen en sleeën.

What does "sleeën" involve?

Many thanks for your suggestions - KudoZ points will be awarded asap.

sleigh, sledge, skid


Explanation:
It is listing up all the movements with which they assemble/disassemble things. And the four words mentioned are: lifting, rolling, jacking up and sliding. I don't know why they used a noun when all the other words are verbs.
