Narrow aisle pallet racking is the most space-efficient form of selective storage you can implement in a warehouse. It offers the benefit of unrestricted access to each deposited pallet while reducing the amount of space wasted on aisles.
By switching to a narrow aisle rack system, you can save up to 45% more space than with conventional racks, but this is not necessarily feasible for all applications. In addition, narrow aisle racking requires the use of a specialized narrow aisle forklift (also called a turret truck), the cost of which must be added to the initial investment.
Below, we detail the characteristics, advantages, and optimal uses for this type of storage rack system to help you determine whether it is suitable for your warehouse space.
