Maloufs , specialist supplier of second hand pallet racking systems, discusses the benefits Narrow Aisle Racking systems.
Narrow aisle racking systems are designed for safe and efficient handling within narrow aisles and to maximise the height at which goods can be stacked. Pallets are accessed with specialised trucks, which are guided into aisles by floor mounted guide rails that are not much wider than the load itself.
Often used for non-palletised items that need to be manually retrieved, narrow aisle racking systems, are storage systems which allow a greater capacity for storage by minimizing aisle widths and maximizing roof height while still allowing access to individual pallets.
Guide rails fitted at floor level ensure precise positioning of trucks. This has the multiple benefit of improving safety, whilst minimising the incidence of accidental damage to racking as well as improving the speed and accuracy of load handling.
