Very Narrow Aisle Equipment

What is a Very Narrow Aisle (VNA) Forklift?

VNA forklifts are designed to fit the narrowest of aisles, allowing you to make the most of your warehouse or site space. Available as Turret Man Up and Turret Man Down versions, VNA machines are simple to operate.

Man Up

VNA  Man-up forklift trucks allow the operator to ascend with the forks. This enables accurate picking in the highest and narrowest of aisles. The specially designed cab acts as a safety cage, giving the operator the confidence to work at height more effectively. 

Man Down

The operator station remains at ground level, but allows excellent visibility of the mast, sometimes using cameras as an additional aid for positioning pallets. The forks are mounted on a turret head, allowing pallets to be picked from both sides of the aisle without manoeuvring the forklift.

Both VNA truck types are characterized by an extensive control panel that allows the machine to be operated in an easy and intuitive way. VNA trucks are equipped with sensors, electrically monitored side cabinets and personal protection system that continuously work on maintaining safety during work, actively supporting the operator.

Benefits of VNA Forklifts

Unlike a conventional warehouse, the aisles in a VNA warehouse are around 1.7m wide gaining an extra 25% of storage. VNA racking can also be substantially higher, enabling around 50% more storage compared to a conventional racking system.

VNA trucks are ideal for this environment. As well as fitting easily into narrow aisles, they also take up less space in staging areas, wrapping areas and other warehouse bottlenecks.

If you're looking to make the most out of your floor space and make your warehouse as cost-effective as possible, VNA forklifts allow you to maximise your storage.

Many VNA trucks can operate on any floor surface, both inside and out. This eliminates the need for both reach and counterbalance machines, thus minimising costs.

Very Narrow Aisle (VNA) forklifts are specially designed to fit into the most narrow aisles. If your warehouse is looking to maximise floor space, a VNA truck is a great option. VNA forklifts are a popular variety in the market, so our range of second hand VNA trucks includes Jungheinirch and more.
