Narrow Aisle Pallet Racking Systems To Maximize Warehouse Storage Capacity

These free standing systems offer better utilization of space and accessibility to individual pallets

Narrow aisle racking is a great solution for those looking to add storage space to their warehouse without physically moving their operations. By reducing unnecessary aisle space, you can make more room for more racks. A narrow aisle racking system enables you to set up high-density storage by making better use of your floor area and roof height.

Our option of converting to a narrow aisle could be a major cost saving for growth when compared to the option of purchasing or moving to a new facility. Add on the option of raising your roof, and you’re looking at even more cost savings. Space utilization with a narrow aisle system can yield increases of between 45-50% compared to traditional systems. Narrow aisle pallet racking systems are a major alternative to multi-bay racking systems. They offer all the performance features of multi-racking at heights above 30’ and are freestanding in the warehouse.

You may wonder why all warehouses aren’t set up with narrow aisles. Recent remodels of forklifts that can move in smaller spaces have made narrow aisle racking possible. With a narrow aisle racking system, modern truck designs with “swingmasts” and articulated forks allow for aisles as narrow as 65” without the need for guidance systems. This kind of space efficiency allows you to maximize the amount you can store and thus increase your ROI.

Narrow aisle racking systems are completely selective, which means you have access to every pallet. Pallet racking can be configured in a variety of ways and systems, depending on the customer’s requirements and pallet load – the objective is to define the optimal storage economics. For example, narrow aisle racking can be configured using roll-formed or structural rack components.

Aisles that are narrower also mean less floor space, which can be a big advantage. The more floor space there is, the more likely workers are to leave empty pallets and other debris laying around, which can be a huge safety concern. All different types of companies utilize narrow aisle racking, including industrial and retail businesses. If you have limited space and you don’t want to move to a bigger warehouse, narrow aisle racking may be your solution.
