Narrow Aisle Pallet Racking
Narrow Aisle pallet racking system is the space-saving option if floor space is limited: maximum storage capacity, fast accessibility to every pallet and quick order-picking straight from the racking.
The main advantage of narrow-aisle pallet racking is the combination of fast order-picking and the best possible use of space. This compact construction is used in a wide variety of industries where warehousing space is limited. The variable height and depth of the shelving and height-adjustable supporting beams ensure maximum flexibility and the space-saving aisles can be worked either with man-down high-lift stackers or man-up order-picking stackers – for convenient pallet storage and retrieval or for fast order-picking straight from the pallet.
Specially designed Narrow Aisle trucks or cranes are required, to allow manoeuvring in the narrow aisles between racks. Handling equipment is often highly automated, and guide by wire or rail.
