Pushback Pallet Racking
Pushback pallet racking is suitable for warehouse facilities that are looking for a high density storage system. Pushback racking is an excellent choice for both ambient and freezer storage warehouses. Pallets are stored in lanes and rest on a carts-on-rails system. Working from a single aisle, pallets are stored by “pushing back” previously placed pallets with a new pallet on the next cart position. When the front pallet is retrieved, gravity causes the next pallet to move forward into a retrieval ready position. This “last-in, first-out” system (per lane) reduces picking time when a large number of picking faces are required. Systems can store from 2 to 7 pallets deep.
- Exclusive 7 deep pallet system
- Full pallet support
- High precision bearing wheels and components
- Engineered for structural and roll-formed
- Stationary cart in the first pallet position
- Wide range of pallet conditions
Pushback racking allows you to store multiple SKUs on different lane levels, enabling easy access. Combined with proper warehouse management, you can maintain a first in, first out (FIFO) storage system by emptying the oldest lanes first.
THE PUSHBACK & DRIVE-IN HYBRID STORAGE SYSTEM
Another method to maximize storage within a pushback system is to elevate the first beam up to allow fork lifts into the system and deposit pallets on the floor. This is extremely helpful in situations where a double stack of pallets would be rapidly turned over. As fork lifts are driving into this hybrid system, there is a greater risk of potential damage. Rack Systems Inc. provides pallet rack accessories such as in-line truss rub rails, floor-mounted angles, or rack-mounted guides to mitigate any damage.
