Very Narrow Aisle Racking

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

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.
