Very Narrow Aisle Racking Systems

A Nationwide Design and Installation Service​

How do narrow aisle racking systems work?


A very narrow aisle racking system is ideal for warehouses where space is at a premium.

Specialist trucks are required to access the system, but as they do not turn in the aisles they require a guide rail or wire guidance system. This has the advantage of minimising the risk of damage, resulting in lower maintenance.


Narrow aisle racking systems allow for 100% selectivity to every pallet, ensuring good stock rotation, and pallets can be stored to a greater height than in many other storage systems, ensuring maximum use of cubic space.

"The whole project has gone extremely well and has been delivered on cost and on time. SEC Storage worked closely with Essentra plc, ensuring the design of the VNA system maximised the available storage cube; continuing operations were maintained throughout the installation period."

Advantages of a very narrow aisle (VNA) racking system:


  • 100% Product Selectivity - Narrow aisle trucks are able to retrieve every pallet, and the system allows for good stock rotation and throughput.
  • Up to 50% Reduction of Aisle Widths - A VNA setup allows for the storage of pallets in a more compressed space, making full use of the warehouse cube.
  • Damage Reduction - Narrow aisle forklifts are typically guided by wire or rail, reducing the possibility of collisions.
