Narrow Aisle Racking Specification
Narrow aisle racking can utilise up to 65% of all available floor space with storage racks. It’s designed with precision while encompassing safety as it also incorporates the maximum available height of a facility.
With the pallets stored within a dense configuration, narrow aisle racking enables a more efficient production flow of goods whilst simultaneously providing a healthy rotation of stock.
However, this system can increase the cost upon implementation, due to the need for specific forklift trucks. Due to the narrow aisles and limited space available, reach trucks or in some cases, stock pickers, turret trucks or even swing mast forklift trucks are required to access the pallets.
These specialist forklift trucks are designed to operate in smaller spaces and are necessary for a narrow aisle pallet racking system. But by using specialist equipment, including in some cases automated systems where necessary, narrow aisle racking can provide increased efficiency in the production flow while also lowering costs in the long run.
Benefits of Narrow Aisle Racking
The primary benefit to narrow aisle racking is that it offers increased storage of goods and efficiency in the long run compared to other racking solutions. If a business is aiming to reach and maintain high levels of productivity whilst maximising a limited space, narrow aisle pallet racking is the optimal solution.
Because narrow aisle racking utilises the vertical height as well as the available floor space, it provides the capacity for increased stock in creating a high-density storage solution. With the smaller aisles, pallets are stored closer together, reducing aisle width and therefore wasted storage space by up to 50%. In this new system, every pallet is fully accessible when using specialist forklift trucks that allow for an increased picking speed.
When installing a narrow aisle racking system by Midlands Shelving & Racking, accident and stock damage rates are reduced are we ensure each run is installed properly and safely. We can also install additional safety features, such as a guide rail or wire that will help ensure precision and safety.
