What is wide aisle pallet racking?

Wide aisle pallet racking is a versatile and cost-effective system designed to store palletised loads. The system consists of adjustable horizontal beams and upright frames that forms the racks and therefore allows the change of stock and storage requirements.

These systems consist of single or double runs which are separated by a wide aisles, normally 2500 – 4000mm, enabling ‘counter-balance’ or ‘reach’ trucks to operate within. This type of racking is one of the simplest systems you can install and use.

This type of pallet racking is installed in many warehouses for a variety of industries as it allows easy and quick access to stock. As well as this, it can be adapted and utilised to suit your requirements and space as you can adapt the height of the racks, the number of rows and much more.

If you are unsure of what type of racking system you may need, Teepee will be able to help decide this based off your requirements and current warehouse space availability!
