Push Back Pallet Racking
Push Back is used as an alternative to Drive-In pallet racking where there are insufficient homogenous pallets for
a Drive-In system to operate successfully. It can offer high-density storage with different pallet types being stocked
at each level, but operates on First-In Last-Out (FILO) principles.
-High density storage with different pallet types
-Operates on First-In Last-Out (FILO) principles
-More picking faces as each lane can be used to store different commodities
How Push Back Racks work:
Pallets are placed by forklift on nested carts riding on inclined rails.
Each pallet is then pushed back by subsequent pallet loading, exposing the next cart.
When removing product, the forklift takes out the front pallet, allowing the pallets on carts behind it to roll gently to the front of the rack.
The nested carts make placement and retrieval easy.
A push back rack system fills the storage cube with product, not aisles. Instead of single pallet-deep selective racks,
a Pushback rack system lets you store pallets 2 to 5 deep while retaining easy access to a variety of different SKUs.
Most Suitable for:
An alternative to Double deep pallet racking or Drive-In. Can provide storage locations for products that have average
stock holding of 4-5 pallets This is a favoured storage system for small cold store operations with small chambers and
a single access aisle.
