Narrow Aisle Warehouse Solutions - The Right Size For Any Job
We are all adapting to our new normal since the onset of COVID 19. With E-Commerce booming, warehouse and distribution centers are having to assess their operations and methods of handling inventory. They are having to transform their warehouse space to maximize storage and accessibility. As a result, warehouses are turning to longer and more narrow aisles, making handling material a challenge. With a number of warehouses and distribution centers opting for these narrow aisles, there is a greater need for equipment that can maneuver within these tighter spaces. Madland Toyota-Lift is ready for the challenge and understands the importance of helping you choose the proper equipment to maximize and optimize your warehouse space.
General Aisle Widths
A typical warehouse aisle measures 10 ½ feet or more. While narrow aisles (NA) range anywhere from 8 ½ to 10 ½ feet, very narrow aisles (VNA) may only be as wide as 5 to 7 feet. This is why NAs and VNAs can be a challenge when storing product or stacking orders. Most forklifts are too large to turn and stack loads in a narrow aisle. They typically don't have a tight enough turn radius to prevent hitting the racking.
- Typical Aisle – 10 ½ Feet or More
- NA (Narrow Aisle)- 8 ½ – 10 ½ Feet
- VNA (Very Narrow Aisle) - 5-7 Feet
