Narrow-Aisle Pallet Racking for Narrow Space

Limited Floor Space Storage Solution

If your warehousing or storage floor space is limited, consider narrow aisle pallet racking. It is the ultimate space-saving option and is ideal for convenient pallet storage and retrieval, or for fast order-picking straight from the pallet.

Narrow Aisle Pallet Racking

Narrow aisle pallet racking is a commercial racking system using narrower aisles that can be accessed by a turret truck.

Made from quality, high tensile steel, it abides by Australian design standards. Featuring strengthening ribs and reinforcing flanges, they add an extra level of safety.

The initial expense of the turret truck is higher than a conventional forklift, but the system allows you to store much more in the same amount of space so in the long term the costs work out. Consider employing an automated storage and retrieval system (ASR).

Turret Trucks Versus Forklifts

Both turret trucks and forklifts are useful and highly practical forms of operating moving machines in warehousing/industrial spaces. When it comes to narrow aisles you are better off using a turret truck than a forklift, as the former can easily go between the narrow aisles. They’re much smaller than a forklift, so better equipped for small narrow spaces.

With a turret truck you can go as high as 30 metres for efficient use of space and still retain all the benefits and functionality.

Keep in mind that a very flat floor is needed for the safe operation of turret trucks.
