VNA forklifts are specifically designed to be effective in spaces with limited space, such as tight warehouse aisles and between racking housing a lot of stock or products.
Unlike some of their “chunkier” counterparts, VNA forklifts are agile; moving seamlessly in small areas whilst retaining the ability to handle pallets and loads with ease.
Very narrow aisle warehouses naturally have a reduced area in which to work. With this comes a need to find alternative ways to make best use of what they physically have.
With allocated storage areas commonly up high and down low, the right equipment and machinery to make use of facilities is vital.
There are a number of advantages VNA forklifts bring in smaller spaces including:
There are a couple of options when it comes to VNAs – Man Up and Man Down.
Your specific usage requirements will dictate which is the best fit.
Man Down VNA fork trucks work in much the same way as a traditional forklift.
The operator stays in a single place, controlling the forks’ movement.
Man Up VNA forklifts move both the operator and the forks. This movement allows for incredible precision and accuracy when placing loads, as well as offering a great line of sight for movement.
