Color coated volume storage and transportation

  • Failure to take simple and basic precautions during the storage and transportation of high quality prepainted galvanized steel coil may result in damage, delay and economic loss of the coil. Lift on the center of gravity of the bale. When lifting with a crane, nylon belts and extended crosspieces are used, and wire ropes cannot be used.

    When using a forklift to load and unload the high quality prepainted color galvanized coil, the adjustment fork must be greater than 5 feet. If the coil is more than 10 feet, it will take 2 or more people to lift it to avoid sagging. The following measures are taken during transportation and installation to avoid damage to the color coated roll to keep the galvanized steel coil dry during transport.

    Wear dry, clean gloves during handling and installation of color coated rolls. Do not drag the steel coil on a rough surface. The prepainted color galvanized coil should be placed on the skid from the ground, tilted at an angle to avoid water accumulation, and covered with a tarpaulin. Wet bales should be quickly isolated, wiped with clean gauze and stacked in a ventilated area until completely dry.
