Detailed Product Description
Very Narrow Aisle(VNA) pallet racking is the space-saving option if floor space is limited: maximum storage capacity, fast accessability to every pallet and quick order-picking straight from the racking.
The main advantage of very 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 very narrow aisles between racks. Handling equipment is often highly
automated, and guide by wire or rail.
100% accessibility to individual pallets
Best configuration for maximum storage, density and efficiency
Better utilisation of space
Additional cost of specialist forklift truck offset by the added value of improved space utilisation
Lower occupancy rates per pallet stored
VARY NARROW AISLE PALLET RACKING ADVANTAGES & DISADVANTAGES
Low unit load cost when volumes are high.
High through-put rates when storage systems and software are formulated for the purpose.
FIFO inventory management.
Special trucks required.
Super flat floor level is critical.
Limited storage height (15-16m).
Wide transfer aisles required for rack entry.
Trucks not suitable for transport outside rack area.
System cannot be automated.
High maintenance cost.
Narrow-Aisle Pallet Racking Truck Specifications.
FOR NARROW-AISLE TRUCKS
Narrow-aisle storage systems are LOW cost when building, racks and trucks are taken into consideration. However, critical floor requirement and system layout must be carefully considered.
HOT very narrow aisle pallet racking is used with high reach forklifts operating in very narrow aisles which provides high-density for individual pallet access.
HOT narrow aisle pallet racking consists of the same basic components as selective pallet racking but with runs placed closer together eliminating the wasted space of a wide aisle, which maximises storage space using high reach aisle forklifts.
- Accessibility to individual pallet
- Maximise storage, density and efficiency
- Better space utilisation
