How to choose suitable narrow aisle rack?

Narrow aisle rack is a kind of heavy pallet rack.
Its aisle is only slightly wider than the pallet, inheriting the characteristics of conventional beam racks that do not have strict requirements on the pallet storage layout, can make full use of the warehouse area and height, and has a medium storage density. However, narrow aisle racks require special three-way forklifts or cranes for storage and retrieval operations. The three-way forklifts run straight along a fixed track according to their channels, and store pallets to move left and right. At the same time, other handling machinery is required. The turnaround time is compared with traditional racks. Longer. Since the shelf not only has the function of storing pallets, but also needs the function of supporting and strengthening the handling equipment, the structural strength and tolerance matching requirements are extremely strict, and comprehensive consideration must be given to accurate design and installation.
The narrow aisle type rack channel is narrow, which increases the utilization rate of the storage space and the ground utilization rate is high. Faster access to goods. It is suitable for customers with a relatively high warehouse and a relatively high utilization rate of the entire warehouse space. The shelf storage density is extremely high, but its investment is relatively large, and the requirements for shelf quality and installation quality are relatively high.
If the storage or logistics center has the following characteristics, you can consider choosing narrow aisle racks.

  1. The available clear height of the warehouse is higher, more than 8 meters;
  2. The amount of stored goods is large, the goods are in and out more frequently and there are higher picking requirements for the goods;
  3. The warehouse or logistics center urgently needs to increase the number of storage spaces, but the expansion space is limited. The conventional beam racks can be changed to narrow lane racks.
