Coil Bag is a popular style of tarp used to protect rolled steel or aluminum coils while being transported on a flatbed truck and trailer. Put simply, it is one rectangular center tarp and two rounded side tarps that are sewn together. Coil bags drastically speed up the tarping process and weigh substantially less than a lumber tarp so drivers who haul coils often typically own at least one size of coil bag.
Lookout Mountain Tarp offers three styles of coil bags each of which offers advantages. This style is known as a flat coil bag and drivers that prefer this style do so because it can be used on multiple sizes of coils. Securing this style coil bag with take longer and will require more bungee cords but can be used on a wide variety of coil sizes. This flat style is only sewn at the peak of the radius and features over 80% more attachment points.
Regardless of which style coil bag is selected it will be constructed using our heavy duty 18oz vinyl coated polyester fabric. The fabric panels are sewn together using a double lock stitch with our black 277 polyester bonded thread. The sixteen rows of D-Rings are reinforced using a heavy duty polypro webbing. The outer perimeter of each tarp is folded over creating a 2-ply hem that is also reinforce with webbing. #2 brass locking spur grommets are machine punched in the corners as well as about every 24" around this hem.
Since coils are a round object the width and height are an identical measurement that we have shown as "Around" on the drawing. The distance from one round side to the other is shown as "Across" on the drawing. We add an extra 4" to these measurements so if you select the 6' across size it will actually measure 76". Purchase the size closest to what you will be hauling or contact us about having a custom size built.
Rolled steel coils are loaded on a flatbed one of three ways. The most common is called suicide which means the round opening is facing side to side on the trailer and if the coil was to break free it would roll towards the truck. Shotgun is the second option which means the round hole is facing front to back and the coil would roll to the side. Eye to the sky means the round hole is facing vertically. Our flat coil bag will work with both the suicide and shotgun styles but will not fit if loaded eye to the sky.
