What is Very Narrow Aisle Racking?

Very Narrow aisle racking (VNA) is generally used in warehouses that are a little tighter on space. A reduced aisle width of approximately 1.8 meters means floor space is much better utilized increasing it to 45%.

Using a narrow aisle Forklift truck allows you to access all pallets, lifting higher and working faster than standard counterbalance trucks.

As trucks such as these do not turn in the aisles, they need a guide rail or wire guidance system. This allows them to manoeuvre around the racking with a high degree of accuracy.

The advantage of using wire guidance is that is it built within the floor which keeps it clear of obstructions and makes it easier to clean. Each pallet is easily accessible and this ensures good stock rotation and accessibility.

Advantages of this system

  • Enables high-density storage utilizing floor area and roof height
  • Store pallets close together by reducing aisle widths up to 50% and store high
  • 100% accessibility to every pallet stored with narrow aisle trucks
  • Damage rate reduction, narrow aisle trucks are often guided by wire or rail

Push Back Racking

Push Back Racking systems are designed around the principle of organising space by depth rather than width.

This depth arrangement greatly reduces aisle space and increases storage density.

Shuttle Racking

Shuttle Racking is an alternative to Drive In racking or Live Storage Racking.

The idea is that each lane is a single product but unlike drive in racking not all products within the bay need to be the same thus allowing greater density of storage.

Live Storage Racking

Live Storage Racking is a system where pallets are put onto rollers at one end and they can then run down the rollers to be picked off at the other end.

It is a relatively expensive storage solution but can improve efficiency in many warehouses.
