Narrow Aisle Pallet Racking2019-07-04T02:06:41+00:00

For large volumes of multiple product lines

Narrow aisle racking consists of the same basic components as conventional racking but with the racking runs placed closer together, thereby reducing wasted space of a wide aisle system used with conventional forklifts. Pallets can be stored to a greater height to maximise all available cubic space.

Access to narrow aisle racking is by special fork trucks, or ‘Man Up Pickers’ which are guided in the very narrow aisles, by either floor mounted rails or by electronic wire guidance technology placed in the floor.Our mobile system can hold pallets, wire bins, long material such as bars, rolls of carpet, packets of timber etc. therefore providing an extremely wide variety of uses.


Benefits are:

  • Configuration for maximum storage density and cubic efficiency
  • Better space utilisation
  • Higher cost of specialist fork lift trucks can be offset by added value of better space utilisation
  • 100% selectivity of product
  • Suits operations with a large number of SKU’s
