What is Very Narrow Aisle Pallet Racking?

With a wide range of storage solutions for warehouses available in the UK, you need to be sure you have the right racking in place so that you optimise the space available in your storage facility giving you better profit margins in both the short and long term.

A variation of pallet racking, very narrow aisle racking (sometimes called Narrow – NA racking) is used to increase storage capacity by reducing the width of aisles and storing pallets to a greater height.

In this guide, we explain what very narrow aisle pallet racking is and whether you may need to install them into your storage facility.


What is very narrow aisle pallet racking?

Very narrow aisle pallet racking (VNA) is a storage solution that provides efficient and ultra-dense storage of palletised goods with tighter aisles than usual. Reducing the width of aisles and increasing the height of racking, substantially increases the amount of storage space available in a warehouse. Combining the pallet racking system with very narrow aisle forklifts and trucks, will result in a much leaner operation and significantly reduce costs in the long term.

Available in a variety of configurations, Oakway’s very narrow aisle pallet racking range can be tailored to provide maximum storage capacity in any given space.


How does very narrow aisle pallet racking work?

As VNA is an adaptation of standard adjustable pallet racking, they effectively work in the same manner just in tighter spaces! The compaction of the system is mainly done by narrowing the work aisles, which can be reduced by up to 1.5 metres in width and save up to 40% in floor space.
