STORAGE - PALLET STORAGE - NARROW AISLE
Deep Multi-Tier Drive-In
& Rack-clad Powered
Maintaining 100% direct accessibility to each pallet location, narrow
aisle racking provides a very compact storage option by minimising
the operating aisle width between racks.
The aisle is frequently only marginally wider than the pallet itself,
made possible by the use of specially developed mechanical handling
equipment and in-aisle guidance.
Mechanical Handling Equipment
To operate within such narrow aisles, special mechanical handling
equipment is required, fitted with some form of in-aisle guidance
Due to the popularity of this form of pallet racking, availability
of handling equipment designed specifically for narrow aisle operation
is very good and trucks are able to lift to considerable heights
to maximise the use of available headroom.
Physical guidance can be provided for the trucks by steel angle
sections fitted to one or both sides of the aisle along which guidewheels
on the fork truck run. At aisle entry positions, guide-in sections
are fitted to facilitate entry to the aisle, and the first section
of rail is strengthened to withstand the increased impact loads
from truck alignment.
Wire guidance provides electronic guidance for the fork trucks,
the wire fitted within channels in the floor slab. Being flush fitted
into the floor removes any obstacles to facilitate cross-aisles
and pedestrian routes across the storage area.
At Storage Logic we are able to provide a complete service including
aisle guidance and are experienced in working alongside the truck
suppliers to ensure a successful total system installation.
