Very Narrow Aisle Pallet Racking

very narrow aisle racking

If you are looking to totally maximise the available area in your warehouse, Redirack’s very narrow aisle pallet racking offers you the capacity to store at much greater heights than conventional systems. By operating in aisle widths 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.

As these trucks are very specialised in the role they perform, they typically lift higher but are much slower 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 floor. Wire guidance has the advantage of being embedded in the floor which keeps the floor clear of obstructions and is easier to clean.
