Push Back Rack System
Push Back rack systems are available in both structural and roll-formed frames. These rack systems place pallets on nesting carts that are fed forward by gravity on rigid structural steel rails.
A pallet loads from the front, and then pushes the pallet behind it back one position. The front pallet is then removed when unloading and the rear pallets come forward automatically to the front picking position. This allows for Last-In-First-Out (LIFO) inventory management, which makes inventory easily accessible. Operators can store product 2-5 pallets deep, with front-only loading from a single aisle.
Push Back Rack systems are more versatile than Drive-In since each lane flows independently and vertical storage operates separately from lanes below. Multiple pick facings for a variety of SKUs can be stored and retrieved without disturbing other product above or below in a single-lane or double-lane format.
Push Back Rack solution is extremely low profile. This allows you to store up to five pallets deep and still create more stocking space and clearance between levels.
