The Flexi-Coil Advantage
- Flexi-Coil packers are made from 1 1/2 or
1 3/4-inch steel, cold-rolled by a process that was invented
by Flexi-Coil fifty years ago. The coils are heavy100 pounds per
foot for 1 1/2-inch stock and 130 pounds per foot for 1 3/4-inch stock.
Coils are also flexible so they absorb shock while shedding dirt or
- A V-profile distributes packing
force evenly across the width of the packer. The sides of the V-profile
apply most of the force on an angle to balance the direct force at the
point. Just under the soil surface, the result is a uniform seed environment
across the width of the packer, with each seed gaining access to optimum
nutrients and moisture. On the top layer, unbroken clods remain between
the coils to prevent wind erosion and water run-off.
herringbone pattern helps control wind and water erosion.
- For better flotation in loose soils,
hollow tube coils can be inserted into the 1 1/2-inch coils. This option
also helps press rocks down more effectively, where a smooth surface
