Wide Aisle Pallet Racking
Wide aisle pallet racking is ideal for warehouses that require unrestricted access to all pallets and utilise conventional forklift trucks. Each pallet is individually supported and independently accessible.
Pallet racking arranged in a wide aisle pattern, with a minimum of 3 metre wide aisles, requires no specialist handling equipment. Wide aisle racking can be operated with either a reach or counterbalance truck.
A limitation of using counterbalance trucks is that the racking height is restricted to the maximum lift height of the trucks.
Racking arranged in this way gives a high-quality storage solution but may only utilise 40% of the available floor space, the rest being aisles. However, as it enables fast throughput and ease of loading and unloading wide aisle racking is an extremely popular option.

Frequently Asked Questions
As the most extensively utilised industrial storage system for warehouses and yards, Redirack’s wide aisle pallet racking is manufactured in both standard duty and heavy-duty steel. Our systems are suitable for the storage of the majority of palletised goods including food, ingredients and beverages, retail and 3PL applications as well as building and construction products.
Our technical engineers will visit your site and identify how to maximise the available storage area ensuring that pallet racking in a wide aisle configuration will meet the specific storage needs of your site.
Wide aisle pallet racking is manufactured from cold rolled steel sections and comprises of vertical upright posts which have beams attached at variable levels. A pallet racking bay has two frames with beam levels which are dependent upon the height from the floor to the first beam level as well as the height of the uprights.
Wide aisle systems are available in both double-sided and single-sided configurations. Double-sided racking allows access to pallets from either side, and can be used throughout the warehouse, creating storage space on both sides of the structure. Single-sided racks can be free standing for access from both sides or can fit flush against the wall and access to pallets is obviously only from one side.
We do not recommend single bays due to the reduced stability of the racking structure and would generally advise against this if possible as bay that only has one pair of beams is fundamentally far less stable than a run of bays.
Redirack offer a broad range of rack frames and beams our technical engineers are able to offer a solution whatever the storage issue.
