The Coil carrying flatbed semi-trailers exist in most transport fleets, with its specific design developed in the 1970’s purposefully for the safe transport of heavy steel coils as well as other coil like material loads. The wells are available in various sectional lengths allowing coils to be positioned according to size and weight with trailer structure remaining stable and ridged. The well itself can also be covered to make a conventional flatbed trailer for other long load lengths or smaller coils where they can be placed on their side with eye to sky. Stanchion would be fitted along the well sides with a further seven or more pairs positioned on the outer frame. There are options available and one has a sliding arrangement and also carries a one piece tarpaulin top cover and side curtains, these being slid to one end allowing full access for trailer loading from the top or sides without restrictions from trailer framework. Conventional rear access doors are also available as an option.
The P&D Marsh design enables the modeller to recreate this type of well semi-trailer in kit form allowing it to be produce in various covered or part covered variants. Various sized steel coil loads are also available separately see Product Codes M57, M58 & M59 . Deck boards are also included to cover wells when alternative loads are to be carried
