Push Back Racks
This system of pallet racking also uses gravity to push pallets in back to the front position during picking.
Push Back Racking is a high density storage solution that allows greater selectivity than drive-in pallet rack. Push Back is a LIFO (last in, first out) system, but multiple SKUs can be stored since each lane and level is accessed independently. Push Back systems can be designed to store up to 6 pallets in depth and multiple levels vertically. Options are available to accommodate various pallet sizes and types within one system.
Inventory is loaded onto pallets with nested carts that roll on slightly angled rails. Loading a pallet onto the racking system pushes the pallet behind it back one position. Unloading allows the pallet to roll forward smoothly and evenly.
