Very Narrow Aisle Racking System

Our Very Narrow Aisle racking system (VNA) is an ideal space-saving solution.

Compared with other standard types of racking systems, VNA systems allow pallet racking components to be installed closer together. VNA offers an excess of 55 per cent floor utilisation with good stock rotation.

You will need special forklift trucks or man-up order pickers to load and unload pallets. These get guided by either floor-mounted rails or through electronic wire technology.

The design of our VNA systems normally involves a back-to-back set-up, which allows immediate access to all pallets. It is one of our most flexible pallet racking solutions, making it suitable for a wide range of applications.

Customised to You

VNA is an adjustable and Scalable High-Density Storage Solution. As with all of our products at Storepro, we ensure that our pallet racking components in the Very Narrow Aisle racking system are made of the highest quality materials. Alongside the industry-standard design that we use, all the elements in our products are fully adjustable, scalable, strong, and durable. We can build your VNA racking to a height that meets your requirements, ensuring you can take advantage of the full height of your warehouse.

You can achieve a significant increase in racking density when you go for a Very Narrow Aisle racking system. Compared to a standard racking system, the aisles created with VNA that forklifts operate in can be reduced by up to 1.5 metres.

Narrower aisles result in an increase in available space by as much as 40 per cent. Specialist forklift trucks, sometimes referred to as VNA trucks, have rotating forks that enable them to effectively pick pallets from any location within the rack.

Suitable Applications

Very Narrow Aisle racking solutions are versatile and flexible, making them suitable for a wide range of applications. VNA requires specific forklift trucks or man-up order pickers to load and unload pallets.

The use of guidance systems is also an important component in most narrow aisle pallet racking systems. There are two main types:

  • Wire – inductive or wire guidance uses cables or wires installed in the floor at the centre of each aisle. Sensors on the forklift trucks connect to these wires, ensuring they follow the right path up and down the aisles. This system is highly effective, helping automate the movements of forklift trucks and eliminating lateral deviations.
  • Mechanical – rails installed in each aisle guide the forklift trucks, ensuring they always stay on track. The forklift trucks need to be fitted with rollers.

Our territory managers are highly experienced with VNA storage solutions in New Zealand and can help you choose the best solution for your space and storage needs.
