Steel Coil Procedure:

  1. After loading the coil on the trailer in the approved location, check the pallet and banding to make sure they are secure and in good condition.
  2. Using rubber-coated edge protectors or rubber belting, then secure 1 chain over the top of the coil, centered on each side.
  3. Using rubber-coated edge protectors or rubber belting, secure 2 chains in an “X” over the coil, on top of the first chain.
    NOTE: Be sure that the ” X ” is spread over the coil to ensure that the coil will not slip out from under the chains.
  4. Using rubber belting, secure a trip chain around the front of the coil, if securing more than 1 coil, use 1 trip chain around the front of the front coil, and 1 around the rear of the rear coil.
  5. Tarp the load securely as required.
  6. Secure all loose equipment, including chains and binders, lumber, tarps, rubber belting, coil racks, edge protectors, and load bar.
