Door and board lifters are specifically designed to lift and hold doors, panels, or any other rigid sheet materials while they are being fitted. They’re designed to allow one person to fit panels which would otherwise require more than one person.
They are commonly used to assist with fitting doors, as they need to clear the floor to open freely. Doors can be heavy and difficult for a single person to handle. You will have both hands free to attach hinges while the door is elevated using your foot.
Another common use is to assist with fitting plasterboard, also known as wallboard, gypsum board, and drywall (particularly in the U.S). These boards are used to line interior walls and ceilings. Plasterboard is installed flush to the ceiling, rather than the floor. It’s a quicker alternative to traditional plaster, which takes a long time to dry.
