Narrow Aisle

When it comes to space utilisation our Very Narrow Aisle racking systems take cubic and floor space to new levels of efficiency. The aisles are designed to suit specialist very narrow aisle trucks that are guided within the structure using a floor mounted guidance system.

Increasing Space Utilisation

Narrow aisle pallet racking is the space-saving option if floor space is limited: maximum storage capacity, fast accessibility to every pallet and quick order picking straight from the racking. Aisle pallet racking system have a width of around 1.6 metres, with each pallet being individually supported and independently reachable. Although a specialist narrow aisle truck must be used in this system, this allows for a dramatic increase in space utilisation.

The space-saving option

Specialist Very Narrow Aisle (VNA) forktrucks or cranes are used with this system, but they can lift higher, work faster within the aisle and operate with greater precision, accuracy and efficiency than standard trucks.

Key Benefits

With all pallets accessible there are minimum loading complications, therefore the system maximises speed, thus improving productivity.

Narrow Aisle racking can free up to 45% of the floor space given to aisles in a wide aisle scheme. Through maximising space utilisation you can store more pallets in the limited space of your warehouse.

These specialist machines lift higher and work faster than a general purpose truck. Therefore through a narrow aisle system not only is space utilisation improved through higher reach but also faster order picking, therefore increasing productivity.

Additional cost of specialist forklift truck offset by the added value of improved space utilisation.
