Rhino Rails recently provided a custom solution for a very narrow aisle pallet rack application. The customer initially requested our standard end-of-aisle rack protectors, but as the project developed, the standard aisles became very narrow, and it became clear they needed a different solution.
The client converted the pallet rack layout to a very narrow aisle configuration. Our regular end-of-row protectors encroached too far into the drive aisle to allow for their forklifts, so we needed to develop a guard that didn't reduce the aisle space.
We developed a simple but very effective solution. Rather than the standard semi-circle guard, we formed a guard with a flat face to minimize the loss of aisle space. We could to do so without increasing cost or lead time compared to the original proposal.
Rhino Rails quickly responded to a change in project scope and provided an effective solution without increasing cost or lead time. The distributor and customer were pleased with the outcome, and we now have a viable option for very narrow aisle pallet rack layouts. We effectively collaborated with the distributor to provide the best solution for their customer's unique application.
