Coil racking solutions provide a safe and easy storage system for storing various coils such as cables and wire as well as rolls of plastic, carpets and other products that are difficult to use on regular pallet racking.

Coil Racking Solutions

Typically, the system comprises the uprights and a spindle that goes through the centre of the coil, which allows for the unwinding of the product. The spindle can be lifted from the racking using a forklift truck for movement around the warehouse or factory.

Manufactured within the UK, the coil storage system features: 

  • Robust design, with all frames and beams commonly manufactured from heavy-duty steel sections.
  • Individual structural calculations to ensure that the most cost-effective solution is provided.
  • Options for single or double-sided units with a wide range of painted or galvanized finishes.
  • Vertical adjust ability on all spindle levels.
  • Drum location collars available.
