Coils on skids, horizontal winding axis

Coils with horizontal winding axis on skids
  Coil set down on a skid and fastened with steel strapping

There is no need to address the securing of these cargoes separately. Where possible, packing should be carried out so that the lower layer of the wooden sled members are at right angles to the container bottom cross members. If dimensions do not permit this, the cargo must be packed either crosswise or lengthwise. If the bottom wooden sled members run parallel to the container bottom cross members, it must be verified that the container line load is not exceeded. If this is the case, additional wooden members must be provided to distribute the pressure. Any remaining gaps should be filled with lumber at the height of the load-bearing parts. Loop lashings should also be passed though the eye to provide further securing. In no event should tie-down lashings, as shown in the picture, be used. If bracing and/or loop lashings are not enough, or if they are difficult or impossible to apply, the option still remains of applying shoring against the load-bearing wedge beams or the other wooden sled members encompassed by the strapping. In individual cases, subject to compliance with the basic rules for using airbags, it may be possible to use airbags alone or in addition to other securing means. If the steel strapping is too weak or could slacken because, as shown in the picture, it has been passed over the edge of the lumber without an edge protector, it must be securely fastened to the skids by additional means.
Where possible, friction-enhancing materials should be laid under the skids. If the cargo has to be slid into its stowage space, such materials can only be laid, if at all, once the cargo is in position. This requirement also applies to the following examples.
