Very Narrow Aisle Racking

Very Narrow Aisle racking is the perfect solution when space is a premium and maximising storage capacity a must.

About Very Narrow Aisle Pallet Racking

VNA racking for exceptionally dense storage

With aisles up to half the width of standard pallet racking solutions, very narrow aisle pallet racking provides a high-density storage area.

Specialist very narrow aisle (VNA) trucks are required to access the system, but as they do not turn in the aisles, they may need a guide rail or wire guidance system. One advantage of this is minimising the risk of damage, resulting in lower pallet racking repairs and maintenance.

Very narrow aisle racking systems allow every pallet and container to be accessed, ensuring good stock rotation. Pallets can also be stored to great heights, providing maximum use of cubic space.

Our VNA pallet racking solution is manufactured here in the UK. Being one of the UK’s most experienced pallet racking teams, we will design a solution to assist in renewing, reconfiguring or expanding your existing warehouse operations.

Features & Benefits of Very Narrow Aisle Pallet Racking


Damage Reduction

VNA trucks are typically guided down aisles by wire, rail or laser, reducing the risk of damage to any rack.


Improved Stock Rotation

With easy access to all picking bays, the solution enables great stock rotation.


Greater Storage Capacity

The system makes excellent use of floor space and height, enabling the ability to store individual product SKU’s per bay.


Compliance with Safety Regulations

Our designs for VNA racking comply with SEMA codes of practice for safe and appropriate usage.
