Very Narrow Aisle (VNA) Unit Showcase

Filed under: Warehouse Racking

Very narrow aisle (VNA) is a warehouse layout design to maximise the utilisation of available storage space.

By narrowing the distance of the aisles and using tall racking systems the maximum vertical and horizontal storage space is able to be utilised no matter the overall size of the building.

Adaptalift Group has a number of specially adapted VNA units to suit any application including man-up turret trucks, counterbalance aisle-master forklifts and ride-on reach trucks.

What is Drive-In Racking? Warehouse Racking Guide: Part 4

What is drive-in racking? With drive-in racking, pallets are placed so they can slide backwards on a rail, thus storing them more deeply and creating more space in the warehouse.
