Narrow Aisle Pallet Racking

narrow aisle pallet racking

Redirack’s range of industrial pallet racking includes narrow aisle pallet racking systems. With aisle widths of around 1.8 – 2.3 metres this type of warehouse racking fully optimises the available area. This can free up between 30 – 40% of the floor space given over to aisles in a wide aisle scheme. Reduction in the width of aisles between racking compared to standard pallet racking systems can improve overall stock holding.

Articulated narrow aisle trucks have been developed specifically to maximise storage . This type of truck has an articulated mast giving a net result of a much larger increase in space utilisation allowing them to work well within the aisle’s of the narrow pallet racks.

The trucks turn in the aisles via the articulated mast and no guide rail or other guidance system is required. It should be noted that the tighter the operating clearances allowed in the aisle, the slower the general speed of operation will be. It is better therefore with such trucks to allow as much operating clearance in the aisle as possible without compromising the justification for the system.
