Narrow Aisle Racking

Working in conjunction with the client and their preferred supplier of forklift trucks, Thistle was able to design a racking system with an aisle width measuring 1400mm from guide rail to guide rail.

Thistle also maximised the available height of the pitched roof by increasing the number of pallet levels on the bays from 4 to 6.
