Narrow Aisle Flexi has introduced the Flexi VNA, which is designed to save space, optimise efficiency and increase safety within the warehouse or distribution centre.
The four-wheel articulated forklift is capable of operating in aisles as narrow as 1.6 metres wide.
When it is launched existing users of guided Map Up and Man Up VNA equipment will have the option of direct replacement with a truck which is faster and offered at a lower cost.
The truck has a compact axle design and is able to articulate through 220 degrees and allows ISO pallets to be stacked and picked in 1,600mm wide aisles in two separate movements.
The truck features twin front wheel drive, which means that the weight of the truck and the load is divided between the truck’s two front wheels, helping to achieve maximum traction and reduce tyre wear.
John Maguire, sales and marketing director of Narrow Aisle Ltd, commented: “Since its launch the Flexi has become the most popular articulated forklift truck in Europe.
“Over 4,000 units – not only in Europe but throughout the world – have been sold and we are continuing to develop the Flexi range to cover the requirements of customers operating in hugely diverse industries. The Flexi VNA is the latest addition to the range of articulated forklift trucks that our company has offered for over 30 years.”
The new Flexi VNA has been nominated in the Design Innovation category of the Fork Lift Truck Association’s (FLTA) Annual Awards 2010.
