Narrow Aisle Pallet Racking (VNA) is a kind of selective pallet racking system with a very narrow aisles designed to reduce the wasted space in picking aisles by using a special VNA truck which goes through the aisles using a special guide wheels which guides the machine through its way inside the aisle thanks to the guiding system used
The VNA system provides 100% pallet selectivity which help to be one of the most effective systems when a warehouse is dealing with different SKUs at the same time such as Raw Materials warehouses.
Deposit and picking locations can designed in a form of cantilever at beginning of each Aisles so that a normal forklift can deposit or pick up a pallet from this location while the turret truck woks inside the VNA service aisle which increases productivity.
An extra care must be taken when designing a VNA racking system to the forklift dimensions taking into consideration the picking aisle width.
Different types of machines can be used with this system such man down machines or man-up machines.
