Pushback Racking

Push-Back Storage Racking




Push-Back Storage Racking consists of a set of interlinking trolleys that run on an inclined track within a standard racking system. A pallet is placed on the first trolley using a forklift. The operator then uses the following pallet to push the first pallet and it’s trolley backwards. Up to four pallets can be loaded on a single track, therefore warehouse storage capacity is substantially increased.

Push-Back Pallet Racking provides highly effective use of space by combining high-density storage with high-speed access. The system offers safe and dense storage for 2, 3 and 4 pallets deep. Typically up to 5 pallets high, pallets are gravity fed via the front using conventional handling equipment and retrieved from the same aisle, so the pick face remains constantly full.

Push-Back Racking operates on the FILO ‘first in’, ‘last out’ principle. All lanes can be accessed from the aisle at any time irrespective of the storage level. This promotes a low damage environment as the fork trucks never enter the rack and only skirting the outside of the system while picking. Conventional forklift trucks load pallets into inclined magazines for storage. Once loaded, the pallets return automatically to the front of the rack by gravity. By retrieving from the front of the rack.

Conventional handling equipment can be used. Pallet quality may not be too critical as carts or cradles are used to nest all the stored pallets.

This system is designed for your specific storage application.
