High Density, Efficient Storage With Push Back Rack Systems
An industrial push-back racking system utilizes wheels in the rack structure, allowing palletized goods and materials to be stored by being pushed up a gently graded ramp. Stored materials are allowed to flow down the ramp to each aisle with deep storage at each rack level and a Last-In/First-Out (LIFO) storage benefit.
Pallets are placed on rolling carts, which slide from front of the rack to rear of the rack. As new pallets are loaded into the push back rack from the aisle side of the rack system, existing pallets are pushed to the rear to make space. Standard forklifts are utilized in push back rack applications and provide a cost effective alternative when Last-In/First-Out (LIFO) inventory rotation is used.
Pallets on a push back racking system are stored two to six pallets deep providing more storage space with fewer aisles than conventional selective pallet rack. Push back racks also allow greater selectivity than drive in racks, while providing excellent utilization of storage positions.
- Efficient use of space with only some reduction in direct product accessibility
- Optimal combination of selectivity and storage density
- Sturdy construction yields years of maintenance-free operations
