Push back pallet racks - this pallet storage system provides high storage density and quick access to any load. The pallets are positioned on telescopically placed transport trolleys or roller tracks, with each subsequent pallet pushing the previous one in-depth.
In this way, up to six pallets can be stored in-depth, while loading and unloading are done on the same side of the rack block. This technique also implies a minimum time for the lifting equipment to move during the loading and unloading operations.
The possibility to design a rack construction allows the simultaneous storage of loads and pallets of different types and sizes. Push-back pallets are ideal in both conventional and refrigerated warehouses. They are preferable when it is necessary to provide additional storage space in unusable parts of the warehouse.
Main advantages of the Push-back pallet racking system:
- Easy optimization of routes for loading and unloading - one-way access;
- Use of traditionally unusable places in the storage space;
- Storage of bulky goods and goods of various sizes;
- Automatic movement of pallets to the point of loading and unloading;
- Access to LIFO (Last-In, First-Out) pallets;
- Improves the storage density by up to 25% due to removing aisles.
- Stores multiple SKUs
- Loading/unloading options at the front of the racks reduce labour costs.
- It is common in food warehouses, cold stores, food and beverage and other industries, where there is a large number of pallets, an average number of SKUs and the need for compaction.
What are Push Back Shelves?
Push Back shelving is a pallet storage system that allows pallets to be stored on both sides of the work corridor, providing storage with a higher density than other pallet storage systems. Pallet racking Push Back is a LIFO system, usually consisting of a sloping rail section or nested trolleys. That allows using the entire depth of the rack block to store goods (usually from 2 to 6 pallets deep).
