Coil Edge Protectors For Coil Securement
Coil Edge Protectors can be useful when hauling steel coils. They prevent the steel coil from shifting over the trailer and protect its corners from any type of damage. There are two ways to secure your steel coils. The first method, “Eye to the Side” is the most common way truckers use for steel coil securement, where the coil sits horizontally over your flatbed trailer and the chains run through it. The second way, “Eye to the Sky”, involves lowering the coil onto the trailer vertically, and the tie-down chains running overtop of it. In both methods, you’d insert our steel coil edge protectors first and run your chains over or through the metal coils second. They’re not just protecting your load, but also your chains.
These edge guards are made with heavy-duty materials and will fit firmly over the edges of your coil. You can attach the coil protectors using a strap or adhesive to make sure they stay in place. In addition to protecting the coil itself, the protectors also create a safe barrier between the load and any exposed surfaces on your flatbed trailer. They can also save the average trucker hundreds of dollars in police fines and replacement costs.
Shop Coil Protectors from Mytee Products
Mytee Products' inventory of Coil Edge Protectors includes everything from Heavy Duty Metal Coil Protectors with a rubber lining to Coil Racks. Be sure to check out our inventory below:
- Coil Edge Protector: Heavy Duty Metal Coil Protector with a rubber lining. They’re best suited for steel haulers who use the “Eye to the Side” method of hauling steel coils. These steel coil edge protectors protect your chains and the edges of the steel coil from becoming damaged. The flexible rubber lining absorbs all the tension from the “cutting force” and redistributes it, creating a protective shield around the coil’s corners.
- Coil Racks: Our Coil Racks create a cradle for the steel coils to sit in. Specifically, the steel coils are placed onto the rack and secured in place with chains to prevent them from falling off during transit. These coil protectors are made out of steel and come in either standard or heavy-duty styles.
- Rubber Coil Pad: We offer two styles of rubber coil pad, the Heavy Duty Rubber Coil Pads 6” x 48” and the 7” x 48” with a Diamond Pattern. Be sure to place these pads onto the coil racks before the steel coils are loaded onto your flatbed trailer. The pad provides additional padding, so your coil sits on rubber, rather than your flatbed trailer.
- Coil Mats: To add another layer of protection, truckers can use our Friction Rubber Coil Mats. These anti-slip mats are designed to fit the size and shape of your steel coils. Furthermore, they are placed onto the truck’s trailer first before loading the steel coils onto them.
