Narrow Aisle Racking

General Information

Narrow Aisle Racking Systems allows for the utilisation of narrow aisles within the warehouse, optimising space utilisation without compromising on accessibility. With this system, every inch of available space is utilised, providing a high-density storage solution that maximises your storage capacity.

To facilitate efficient picking and stock rotation, the Narrow Aisle Racking System utilises VNA (Very Narrow Aisle) forklift trucks, designed to be able to move in tight spaces and lift loads to high levels.

Our Narrow Aisle Racking Systems are engineered to the highest quality standards to ensure reliable performance and outstanding goods protection. Our team of experts will work closely with you plan and design a bespoke system according to your specific requirements, ensuring optimal functionality and seamless integration into your warehouse operations. They can also advise on our range of  racking protection products such as Protect It XL and Protect It Maxi Column guards to protect your racking and stock from damage caused by materials handling machinery.

 

By implementing the Narrow Aisle Racking System from Stamina Storage Systems businesses can achieve efficient space utilisation, increase picking rates, and enhance stock rotation. This system is particularly beneficial for industries with high SKU counts or fast-moving inventory, where quick access to products and accurate inventory management are crucial.

The benefits of

Narrow Aisle Racking

Maximises Storage Space
VNA racking systems are designed to optimise vertical storage space, allowing businesses to store a higher number of pallets in a given area compared to traditional racking systems with wider aisles. This maximisation of space is particularly valuable in densely populated urban areas where warehouse space is at a premium.
Increased Storage Density
VNA racking systems can achieve a high storage density due to their ability to store pallets at greater heights. This is especially beneficial for businesses that have a large volume of inventory to store within a limited footprint.
Improved Space Utilisation
By reducing the aisle width and making the most of vertical space, VNA racking minimises wasted space, making it possible to store more products while keeping the overall footprint of the warehouse relatively small.
Enhanced Efficiency
VNA forklifts used in conjunction with these racking systems are highly manoeuvrable and precise, allowing for efficient and quick access to pallets. This can lead to faster order fulfilment and reduced labour costs.
Selectivity
While VNA systems sacrifice some selectivity compared to traditional racking, they still provide relatively easy access to individual pallets. This makes them suitable for businesses with medium to high product turnover rates.
Improved Inventory Management
VNA racking systems can be integrated with inventory management software and automation, allowing for better tracking and management of inventory levels and movement. This leads to reduced errors and improved inventory accuracy.
Safer Working Environment
VNA forklifts are designed for high-reach operations and are equipped with safety features such as sensors and guidance systems to prevent accidents. This contributes to a safer working environment for warehouse personnel.
Cost Savings
While there is an initial investment in specialised forklifts and guidance systems, the long-term cost savings can be significant. Reduced warehouse space requirements, improved efficiency, and lower labour costs can lead to a favourable return on investment over time.
Scalability
VNA racking systems are highly customisable and can be designed to meet specific storage requirements. As business needs change and grow, these systems can be expanded or reconfigured to accommodate evolving inventory demands.
Sustainable Storage Solution
By maximising the utilisation of existing warehouse space, VNA racking systems can help reduce the need for new warehouse construction, which can be environmentally and financially beneficial.

The features of

Narrow Aisle Racking

Narrow Aisles

VNA racking systems have aisles that are much narrower than those found in traditional pallet racking setups. These aisles are typically between 1.6 to 2.2 meters (5 to 7 feet) wide, compared to wider aisles in conventional systems.

Specialised Forklifts

To operate in these narrow aisles, specialised forklifts called turret trucks or Very Narrow Aisle (VNA) forklifts are used. These forklifts are designed to be able to maneuver in tight spaces and lift loads to high levels.

Space Utilisation

A racking systems are often very tall, taking advantage of vertical storage space. This allows for the stacking of pallets at greater heights while still providing access for the VNA forklifts to retrieve and place pallets accurately.

Wire Guidance or Guidance Systems

VNA systems often incorporate wire guidance or guidance systems in the floor to assist the VNA forklifts in navigating the narrow aisles accurately.

Accessibility

While VNA racking maximizes space utilisation, it typically sacrifices some selectivity compared to traditional racking systems. Since pallets are densely stored and retrieval is usually based on the first-in, first-out (FIFO) principle, it may not be as suitable for products with varying turnover rates.

Key facts

  • Aisle width: 1.6 metres
  • Space utilisation: 45%
  • All pallets accessible
  • High throughput speeds
  • Specialist forklift options

Cantilever Racking

General Information

Cantilever racking is a specialised heavy duty storage system designed to accommodate long and heavy items that won't fit on traditional pallet racking systems.

It consists of upright columns, arms, and a base, creating a cantilevered structure that allows for easy loading and unloading of items such as timber, steel bars, pipes, and more.

By investing in cantilever racking, you can unlock the potential for increased efficiency, reduced costs, and improved organisation. If you're looking to take your warehouse storage to the next level, consider implementing cantilever racking as your go-to solution.

The key features of

Cantilever Racking

The main features of cantilever racking upright columns, arms, and a base.

Upright Columns

These vertical columns serve as the backbone of the rack, supporting the arms and the weight of the stored items.

Arms

Cantilever arms extend horizontally from the upright columns, creating a platform to place your items. These arms can be adjusted to different heights to accommodate various load sizes.

Base

The base of the rack provides stability and ensures that the cantilevered structure remains secure, even when holding heavy items.

Why choose

Cantilever Racking?

Optimal Space Utilisation
Cantilever racking is known for its efficient use of space. The absence of front columns and the adjustable arm heights mean you can store items of varying lengths without wasted space. This feature is particularly advantageous when dealing with long or irregularly shaped products, as it maximises your storage capacity.
Easy Accessibility
When it comes to warehousing, accessibility is key. Cantilever racking allows for easy loading and unloading of items with forklifts, cranes, or manual handling. With clear access to your stored materials, you can reduce handling time and increase operational efficiency.
Versatility in Storage
Cantilever racking is incredibly versatile and can be customised to meet your specific storage needs. Whether you're storing building materials, industrial equipment, or automotive parts, you can configure the arms and spacing to accommodate your inventory.
Enhanced Safety
Safety is a top priority in any warehouse setting. Cantilever racking is designed with safety in mind. Its robust construction and the ability to secure arms in place reduce the risk of accidents caused by improperly stored items.
Cost-Effective Solution
Investing in cantilever racking can lead to cost savings in the long run. By maximising your storage space and improving accessibility, you can streamline your operations, reduce labor costs, and minimize the risk of product damage.
Improved Organisation
Keeping your warehouse organised is essential for efficient operations. Cantilever racking allows you to categorise and store items in a neat and organised manner, making it easier to locate and retrieve products when needed.
