Can I Reconfigure My Narrow Aisle Racking to Very Narrow Aisle Racking?

Narrow Aisle Pallet Racking is a highly efficient method of space optimisation, that enables businesses to dramatically increase capacity in a warehouse with limited floor space. It maintains access to every pallet for ease of picking, processing, or retrieval. It operates with aisles of up to half the width required in conventional pallet racking.

Very Narrow Aisle Pallet Racking is a similar system, but where racks are installed in a configuration which puts each row as close together as possible. It also maintains ease of access to pallets. It provides an option which allows space to be optimised and filled as efficiently as possible, but it does require the use of specialist equipment as normal forklift trucks are unable to operate in such a narrow space.

The cost incurred by requiring specialist or adapted equipment is usually recovered by the improvements in storage and picking rates.

While the systems are configured differently, it is completely possible to reconfigure your narrow aisle racking so that you can have a new layout or set up in your warehousing or distribution area, and further increase your space optimisation.

Many companies are unsure about the future and simply want the right solution for now with the potential of setting up a warehouse in a completely different way at a later date. The adaptability of these solutions means it is an optimal solution for a fast growing company that may need to expand in the near future.

It is very important that any solution purchased is fit for purpose for the current time but also future-proofed so that any return on investment is maximised throughout the lifetime of the product being bought, and a system that can be reconfigured is perfect for this.

The process of adapting from narrow aisle to very narrow aisle pallet racking is simply reducing the width of the aisle and changing or adapting your material handling equipment so you are able to maximise the floor space in your warehouse very quickly.
