Push Back Racking

Push Back Racking

 

Push back rack storage rack systems are used in warehouses and pallet racking applications. They use mobile carts and rails on a static frame and beam system. This high-density pallet storage system enables pallets to be stored up to six pallets deep on carriers with inclined rails.

 

How do they work?

 

Pallets of products are placed onto nested carts riding on inclined rails. Every pallet is pushed back by the next pallet loading, which exposes the next cart. When the product is removed, the reverse happens. Instead, the front pallet is removed, which allows the pallets on carts behind it to roll softly to the front of the system.

 

Features

 

The push back rack carts only need a small amount of vertical space in the warehouse as the carts move forward and stay together. Carts can be used for damaged pallets and can be color-coded so that operators know the number of pallets in a fully loaded bay.

 

Where can they be used?

 

Push back racking systems are commonly used in cold room applications, 3PLs, and any company that values their space and time. They are ideal for companies that store a large amount of just one or a few products.

 

Benefits

 

A great benefit of using push back racking systems is that the placement and retrieval process is simple. It allows you to store pallets 2 to 6 deep in a dense, no-aisle configuration. It provides for improved selectivity and floor area utilization.

 

Push back pallet racking also allows the same amount of storage as drive-in systems without using a forklift. It helps to maintain the quality of the system and reduces damage. This type of racking also tends to see fewer rack repairs.

 

The system offers rapid output as the pallets in each location are only selected on a last-in, first-out basis and limit stock rotation. Plus, the push back racking system offers faster material handling. It can drastically reduce forklift traveling times when compared to other solutions.
