What Are Wide Aisle Pallet Racking Systems?

Wide aisle pallet racking, also known as standard or adjustable pallet racking (APR), is the most common type of pallet racking system used in warehouses. It consists of upright frames and horizontal beams that can be adjusted to different heights to cater for the goods being stored.

But how does wide aisle pallet racking work?

  • Upright Frames – These are the vertical components used to support the horizontal beams.
  • Horizontal Beams –These beams support the goods stored in pallets and can be vertically adjusted to accommodate different sizes of pallets.
  • Access –The wide aisles between racking systems are designed to accommodate the turning radius of standard reach trucks and counterbalance forklift trucks. This allows easy access to each pallet.
  • Adjustability – The system allows you to change the height of the beams depending on the size and weight of the goods you wish to store.

It is important to ensure the system you put in place works for you. It is a pointless exercise if your system cannot bear the weight of your goods, adapt to the size of your pallets or if you simply don’t have the storage space to cater for this system. Therefore, we have supplied some technical specifications below to ensure you make the most informed decision.

  • Beams – Our horizontal support bars clip into the uprights of the frame and create the adjustable aspect of our racking systems. They range in size from 600mm to 4500mm and can bear weights up to 4000kg per level.
  • Beam End Connector (BEC) – The steel brackets at the end of each beam clip directly into the vertical components. These typically come in three-, four- or five-prong connections to cater to different loads.
  • Frames – The support structure comprises bracings, uprights and base feet. Frames range in height from 2500mm to 12500mm for wide aisle pallet racking applications, and up to 16500mm for narrower systems.
  • Uprights / Posts – These are the vertical components of the frame that support the beams. There are various upright profiles available to suit the load and application.

Racking Accessories Technical Description

  • Column Guard – This floor-mounted guard sits in front of the upright to protect from MHE (Material Handling Equipment) damage.
  • End Barrier – An end barrier is mounted on the end of racking rows.
  • Anti-Collapse Mesh – ACM (Anti-Collapse Mesh) is used to help prevent any goods from falling from the rear of a single racking row.
  • Fork Entry Bars – These are used to create space between the underside of the load and the top of the beam, giving clearance for forks to pass and lift the pallet.

Benefits of Wide Aisle Racking

Safety

The wide aisles provide ample space for forklift operation, reducing the risk of accidents and collisions. Additionally, the enhanced visibility in wide aisle racking provides a greater view mitigating any potential risks that may not be so clear in a standard storage space system.

Versatile and Flexible Racking

The system can be easily adjusted to fit different pallet sizes and can be reconfigured as storage needs change. This is also a huge cost saving should you relocate your storage, as you can simply move the racking system.

Designed to Suit Storage Load

The adjustable system is designed to suit the precise storage load being held. The racking system can be adjusted to cater for various sizes and to bear greater loads.

Accessible to Forklifts

The wide aisle configuration allows forklifts to access any pallet directly without having to clear others. This is particularly handy for businesses with a high variety of stock, or those operating a First In, First Out (FIFO) system.

Cost Effectiveness

Since wide aisle pallet systems do not require specialised forklifts or guidance systems, the initial setup cost is significantly lower than some other industrial pallet racking systems.

Versatility and Durability

The system can be easily adjusted to fit different pallet sizes and can be reconfigured as your storage needs change. Wide aisle pallet racking is designed to be robust and long-lasting.
