What is Narrow Aisle Racking?

A narrow aisle pallet racking system (also known as a very narrow aisle racking system) is a compact version of a standard pallet racking system that’s designed for small spaces. Since the narrow aisle racking dimensions are approximately half the size of standard racking systems, it offers a more versatile solution when space is limited.

How Narrow Aisle Racking Systems Work

Narrow aisle racking systems use specially designed forklifts to access the pallets placed on the racking. These forklifts follow a guidance system that’s placed either at the sides of the aisle or on the floor to ensure they can move safely down the aisles.

Narrow Aisle Racking Advantages and Disadvantages

Advantages

  • A very narrow aisle racking system is made to provide workers with direct unobstructed access to pallets at all times, making it ideal for warehouse storage applications.
  • Less floor space is needed for very narrow aisle pallet racking applications, which means more inventory can be stored in this free space.
  • In a narrow aisle racking system, pallets can be stacked to a greater height than with standard racking systems, which thereby further increases the available storage capacity.
  • Narrow aisle racking systems are quite easy to assemble, disassemble and modify, allowing you to fulfil your specific storage requirements for any sized inventory.
  • A narrow aisle pallet racking system can be adapted to store inventory of any size, quantity or weight, as load levels can be modified when required.
  • Every very narrow aisle racking system we manufacture is made from durable materials that help the system withstand wear and tear from daily use.

Disadvantages

  • Standard forklifts won’t fit in the aisles of narrow aisle racking systems. Purpose-made trucks are required, and workers will need to be trained to use these trucks.
  • The installation cost of a very narrow aisle racking system can be higher compared to the cost of installing a standard racking system.
  • The design of narrow aisle pallet racking makes it more difficult for workers to access and move large types of inventories out of the storage area and through the limited aisle space.
  • Since the aisles are extremely narrow, the likelihood of racks and pallets being damaged is higher
