Wide Aisle Pallet Racking is the simplest of all racking systems, it allows direct access to every pallet.

This pallet racking system is easily adjustable and caters for changes to the type or size of goods stored. It is extremely durable due to its smart and straightforward design.

This pallet racking system can be built to your specific requirements, maximising productivity and storage space in your warehouse.

Pallets are clearly visible and easy to load and unload using a forklift truck. It is ideal for warehouse and industrial applications.

Within the wide aisle racking system, each pallet is individually supported and independently accessible, which frees up valuable driver time.

What is Wide Aisle Pallet Racking?

This is the “standard” pallet racking system which has been used in warehouses across the globe for decades.

Within this system, each pallet is individually supported and independently accessible.

Rows of pallet racking are constructed in single or double runs, which are separated by a wide aisle which allows 100% selectivity of products.

The aisle width will typically range from 2.5m to 4.0m depending on the type of lift truck that will be utilized with the racking. This system does not require specialised handling equipment.

A standard counterbalance forklift can be used in aisles 3.5 to 4.0m metres wide once the racking is assembled.

Reach trucks can work in aisles with pallet racking only 2.5 metres wide.

A limitation of using standard lift trucks is that the pallet racking system's height is restricted to the maximum lift height of the trucks.

This is a highly versatile storage solution. You can easily adapt it to suit your need and it gives you direct access to individual pallets without the need for specialist handling equipment. 

As well as versatility, wide aisle pallet racking is extremely cost effective, making it an exceedingly popular option for those looking for a simple yet dynamic solution.

Wide Aisle Racking uses the FIFO (First In, First Out) principle ensures that perishable or short shelf-life SKU's can be turned over effectively.
