Coil racks are very popular with steel suppliers, distributors and metal fabricators. Clear up floor space by utilizing the air space. Stack up, not out. Our coil storage rack system will allow you to better utilize the vertical storage space in your warehouse.
You are paying for every square foot of storage space in your warehouse. Why not use every square foot. Coil racks come in starter units and add-on units. Each unit consists of an upright frames, adjoining beams and coil cradles (or coil beds). We design the coil rack around the size and weight of your coil.
The capacity of coil rack is designed by engineers to support the load weight of your coil. The front and back beam is what supports the coil weight. The cradles are not designed to handle the entire weight. Therefore we recommend that coils extend over front and back of cradle approx. 3″ in order to insure that beams of rack system support the weight.
Coil Rack Features and Benefits Include:
• Coil racks can be engineered to handle coil weights ranging from 6000 lbs., 8000 lbs. up to 10,000 lb. We are NOT able to supply coil rack for coil reels weighing over 10,000 lbs.
• Coils racks consist of following components: Upright Frames, Beams & Coil Cradles.
• We offer two styles of coil racks each with it’s on unique style of coil cradle. Coil rack is constructed of either roll formed or structural steel. Coil cradles are either constructed of round tubular steel or inverted steel angles. The roll form rack with inverted steel angle cradles are less expensive and can be designed to handle the weight.
• Coil Racks have an integral coil cradle that sets on the beams and helps support the coil. The coil cradle stays fixed to the beams at all times and has two inverted steel angles (or round tubes) that run front to back on the shelf and provide support.
• The frame depth of uprights is designed to equal Coil Depth (or width). Coils must always be supported by the front and back beam of the coil rack. Our coil cradles are made for specific coil diameters.
Let us design a heavy-duty coil rack system to store your steel coils. Please call one of our friendly and knowledgeable sales people at 800-763-9020 to discuss your requirements. You may also email us at [email protected] We look forward to speaking with you.
NOTE: Coil racks and Coil Cradles are only designed to store full size master coils or pup coils, not slit coils. Slit coils should be stored at floor level or on their side (stored on pallets).
