I know this sounds obvious, but the spec sheet should have a min aisle requirement or right angle stack line by truck model. add the length of load and you should have it

Wayne C.....  Would like to see your info think it would help alot of people.   One thing I would like to mention about spec sheets is they do not account for operator error.  I had a customer set up the entrance of a battery department with a narrow doorway and operators had to turn in either direction to position their equipment.  Building damage from operators turning into the area.   Also in rack locations it is important to consider all equipment and load configuations.

As we design, manufacture, and market material storage systems and also market the forklifts that work within those systems we deal with this issue frequently. Wayne C is correct in considering the steering capabilities of the forklift equipment to be used. Other factors that effect aisle width are: building specifications, dimension of the loads to be stored, the height of the storage system used, side to side load clearance and productivity demands. For a general rule of thumb for common applications the following can be used to estimate aisle width: head length of the forklift, plus load length, plus 6" to 12" clearance will give you a basic load to load aisle dimension.

The min aisle width is not decided only by the truck construction (3-wheel or four- wheel), but also by the load dimension.

Also make sure you consider the frequency of load putaway/extractions in the specific storage areas. Designing aisles to the minimum specs of the lift truck and load can be a real productivity killer.

to bring life back to this forum..

you should also take into consideration the operators using the equipment, years of experience could allow you to subtract a little space, however add one FNG and then you have to put that amount back in the aisles
