What Is Push Back Pallet Racking?

Pushback Pallet Racking allows higher storage density than other forms of pallet racking. Though you can have these racks filled up to six-deep, most warehouse operators opt for only two deep. Unlike other systems, you cannot store partially filled pallets on a pushback system. Push Back Racking allows the aisles to be eliminated and gains more valuable pallet storage in your warehouse. Is your current racking system is costing you money due to high costs of labor from loading and unloading? Are you experiencing costly maintenance due to rack damage from driving in and out of the rack system? Do you have a lot of the same SKU? Do you need to store a wide variety of different size pallets? Then a Push Back Racking system in your warehouse will multiply your pallet storage greatly!

Pushback Rack systems utilize gravity-fed telescoping carts to provide the highest density storage. In most cases, Pushback Racking systems can double your warehouse storage capacity while allowing for more picking faces. Push Back lanes can be designed to accommodate all different or unique pallet sizes. Pallets are fed and retrieved from one aisle, which makes Push Back racking extremely easy to operate. You simply load the first pallet onto the top cart, and then as you load the second pallet it pushes the first pallet back, which can be continued up to 6 pallets deep. To remove pallets, simply lift the pallet and back out slowly until the next pallet is in the front position.

There are many advantages to using pushback racking. Because the pallets come to the aisle, a pushback rack is much faster to load and unload than any comparable drive-in rack. Additionally, with pushback your stock rotation and occupancy are greatly improved. Each level can store a different product. Finally, rack damage is significantly reduced because the operator does not have to drive in to the racks to remove pallets.
