Wide Aisle Pallet Racking

Versatile pallet storage system with unrestricted, rapid access to pallets at all times

What is Wide Aisle Racking?

Wide Aisle Racking is one of the most common pallet storage systems in the world. It is an extremely versatile and cost-effective form of racking that can be utilised without the need for specialised handling equipment or driver training. This form of racking is constructed in single or double runs, which are separated by a wide aisle allowing 100% selectivity of products.

Beam levels can be placed at any height, and the racking can be configured to take virtually any form or configuration of unit load. Racking can be re-engineered and reconfigured at any time in the future and is simple to install and move if necessary.

Adjustable Pallet Racking is in such high usage throughout the world, that a vast array of accessories and ancillary products have been developed to enable even further flexibility. In particular, these products can be used to adapt the racking to picking purposes, and to handle non-palletised products through the use of decked levels or other adaptation.

If your warehouse facility requires additional racking for increased product storage capacity, you may wish to consider Very Narrow Aisle (VNA) racking solution. VNA offers increased levels of storage capacity and still provides the benefit of 100% product selectivity.

SEC Storage undertakes in-depth analysis of your warehouse operation to ensure you benefit from the optimal solution, taking into consideration factors such as volumetrics, product throughputs across peak and non-peak times as well as SKU size and weight.

Product review

“Whilst optimum storage capacity was one of our key drivers for the project, we still needed a storage solution that would meet and complement our operational needs. SEC Storage helped us achieve this with their wide aisle configuration. More importantly, they helped us to bring our total warehouse pallet capacity to 9,750.”
