Very Narrow Aisle Pallet Racking
Very narrow pallet racking is usually used in warehouses which offer minimal space. Very narrow aisle pallet racking systems have an aisle width of around 1.5 – 1.6 metres. This can free up to 45% of the floor space given over to aisles in a wide aisle scheme.
Very narrow aisle specialist trucks must be used within the system, these trucks do not turn and are therefore ideal for this type of racking and the net result is a dramatic increase in space utilisation.
Because such trucks are very specialised in their role they typically lift higher and work faster than general purpose lift trucks. Whilst they do not turn in the aisles, they need guidance, therefore, a guide rail or wire guidance system must be fitted to the warehouse pallet racking. Wire guidance has the advantage of being embedded in the floor which keeps the floor clear of obstructions and easier to clean. The disadvantage can be a high level of potentially catastrophic damage, that may be caused should the truck lose the signal from the wire and impact the racking structure.
Each pallet is supported with a narrow aisle pallet racking scheme, which means that stock rotation and accessibility are as good as a wide aisle system. Accessibility is very good with this racking system and every pallet stored can be accessed with regularity which is vital to maximising this pallet racks storage options. Narrow aisle pallet racking also reduces damage rate due to it’s compact nature of use of specialised trucks.
