Coil Carrier

Compelling Reasons to Choose Coil Carrier

  • Ideal
  • Cost-effective
  • Tested
  • Certified
  • Proven
  • Sustainable
  • Eco-friendly

Steel coils are normally shipped using wooden logs for bracing. However, this method has a grave shortcoming – shipped in this manner, coils have a rolling tendency. As a result, the entire load becomes unsafe. Coil Carrier from Coir Atlas is designed especially for the shipping of HR and CR coils in eye-vertical fashion, making it highly safe. Bamboo sections form the core of Coil Carrier and bear the weight of the shipment. Layers of jute fabric secure the shape of Coil Carrier. This not only makes it a log-like unit but also gives it characteristics far superior to wooden scantlings. Additionally, a soft cushion is included to provide a layer of protective padding. This ensures there is no damage to thin gauge coil edges.

What does Coil Carrier look like

Where can Coil Carrier be used

Coil Carrier is designed to solve the specific transportation problems that industries face in shipping coils. Coil Carrier replaces wood scantlings that are conventionally used for supporting HR and CR coils. 4 Coil Carrier units are used to secure a coil in eye-vertical fashion.

Why Coil Carrier is superior to wooden scantlings

Lower on Cost

Scantlings are expensive. Coil Carrier is less costly and more cost-effective.

Higher on Strength

Scantlings split under pressure. Coil Carrier has lab-tested strength and does not break.

Safer on Material

Scantlings scratch the top and bottom sheets of the material being transported. The jute covering and the additional padding in Coil Carrier eliminate such scratches from happening.

Effective in Transport

SCoils have a rolling tendency when only scantlings are used as bracing. This makes the entire load unsafe. Coil Carrier eliminates rolling and holds the material firmly in place, making it highly safe to ship coils. What is more, Coil Carrier reduces the drag force on transportation vehicles.

Low on Pilferage

Wooden scantlings have more value and are prone to pilferage. Coil Carrier is made out of bamboo and pilferage worries are fewer.

Assured in Supply

Wooden scantlings face an uncertain supply scenario as it gets more difficult to procure timber. Coil Carrier is made from bamboo, which is more renewable, and hence offers assured supply.

Friendlier to Nature

Wooden scantlings are procured at high cost to the environment and lead to deforestation. Coil Carrier is made using eco-friendly materials such as bamboo and jute, making it the more eco-friendly choice.
