How to Store Sheet Metal Rolls

Polyurethane Coil Storage Types

Metal fabricators and manufacturers in virtually every industry need an efficient and reliable method for storing sheet metal coils. That’s no simple task: today’s industrial sheet metal coils often weigh anywhere between 7 and 15 tons, with some coils approaching 30 tons or more. 

Managing all of that weight while preventing damage to the costly sheet metal material requires a well-engineered storage solution. The outer wrap on a 72’ diameter coil is about 19’ long. Damaging the 5 outer wraps can easily add up to 100 ft of wasted metal. That’s where Polyurethane Products steps in with multiple coil storage options to choose from, all engineered with extreme durability to stand the test of time on any modern factory floor.

Polyurethane Products manufactures a complete range of custom storage options
to efficiently handle your sheet metal rolls and other material coils.


Sheet Metal Coil Storage Pads

Our polyurethane coil storage pads are designed to prevent damage on pre-finished and/or surface-sensitive sheet metal stock, while also protecting your shop floor. These robust pads are stronger and much more resilient than both rubber and plastic, precisely molded from 95A duro orange Urethane. They perform flawlessly up to operating temperatures of 225° F.

A highly convenient storage solution, our coil pads are designed to prevent damage to the outer wraps of sheet metal while providing workers with easy access and maximum productivity. They are ideal for delicate components such as pre-painted, polished, or decorative metals including aluminum, copper, brass, and stainless steel.

Our quality coil storage pads are perfect in automotive manufacturing applications, as well as sheet metal stamping, re-coiling, and cut-to-length operations.

Sheet Metal Coil Storage Cradles and Saddles

Our custom sheet metal coil storage cradles and saddles are designed differently than our storage pads for increased load capacity while offering all of the same improvements in storage efficiency and productivity.  Like our coil pads, these robust cradles are manufactured from orange Urethane with a durometer rating of 95 shore A and a maximum operating temperature of 225° F.

We engineer our custom storage saddles to fit in standard steel channels. This provides our customers with maximum flexibility, productivity, as well as safety in their sheet metal handling processes. Our storage cradles are designed for coil diameters ranging from 48” to 72” and allow for coils to be double-stacked to maximize your available warehouse space.
