Push back racking systems are a high-density storage solution that allows pallets to sit 2-6 deep. Used in a wide variety of industries, push back storage racking enables warehouses to have wider aisles because the pallets sit on nested carts, one behind the other.
Using a first-in-last-off (FILO) system, the pallets are loaded and unloaded at the front of the rack solution. The first pallet is loaded onto a cart that rests on inclined rails, and gravity moves the goods gently toward the back of the push back pallet racking system.
The forklift operator can add the remaining pallets to the rack and then has easy access to retrieve goods when required for an order. Because employees are always aware of the pallet position on the storage rack, this is a safe and effective method for loading and unloading goods.
Providing a higher level of storage capacity than a standard pallet rack, pushback racking allows a warehouse manager to store pallets in a confined space and retrieve them easily when required.
Push back racking systems also combine with other types of storage racking, such as drive in racking or pushback rack systems, providing versatility when organizing your warehouse storage areas.
