Abstract:
Modern warehouses designed with very narrow aisles between tall racks require tight tolerances on floor flatness for efficient movement of lift trucks within these defined traffic lanes. Unfortunately, specifying the proper floor tolerances for the intended lift trucks and rack height is often overlooked. An explanation of F-min floor tolerances and why they are appropriate for this application are provided.
