8 Reasons to Consider Narrow Aisle Racking
Switching to narrow aisle racking or very narrow aisle (VNA) racking storage configuration allows companies to store more goods and materials per square foot within their warehouse or distribution center. This involves narrowing the aisles as well as going higher with your pallet racking to allow for maximum storage capacity. Standard selective pallet racking aisles are at least 12′ or wider. Narrow aisle racking is spaced between 8′ to 10′ wide vs very narrow aisle racking designs that can have as narrow as 5.5′ aisles, storing up to 50% more product in the same footprint.
Warehouse managers are challenged with improving efficiency, reducing costs and yet still need to find ways to improve / modernize their processes. It’s no easy task. Many warehouse managers turn to narrow-aisle racking or very narrow aisle racking storage solutions to make better use of their existing or new facility’s storage space.
