Advantages & Disadvantages of Narrow-Aisle Pallet Racking

The narrow-aisle pallet racking has the same configuration as the conventional pallet racking although it utilizes special equipment to handle pallets in narrow aisles. It makes optimum use if the floor area and elevation while allowing for access to all pallets. It is commonly used when land cost is high or running expenses are high such as in controlled warehouse environments (e.g. temperature, humidity, etc.). This type of racking requires special training in order to operate the equipment safely and minimize material handling damage.
