By allowing fork lift trucks to operate in aisles of up to half the width required in conventional adjustable beam pallet racking, narrow aisle racking solutions make excellent use of floor space and maximises the height at which goods can be stacked. Using specialised lift trucks in either ‘articulated’ or ‘man-down’ or ‘man-up’ variants, narrow aisle racking is precision designed for safe, efficient load handling within the tight confines of these space-efficient aisles.
|Articulated trucks work in aisle of as little as 1750mm without having the need for any guidance. Aisles of less than that are fitted with guidance rails or wires at floor level, these specialist ‘man up’ or ‘man down’ trucks are precisely guided into position, thereby improving safety, whilst minimising the incidence of accidental damage to racking and improving the speed and accuracy of load handling.Speed of operation is good with the use of standard forklift trucks driving into the lanes to pick and place pallets. Speed can be further increased by the provision of lead-in rails and guidance rails within the lanes.|
