A push back racking pallet storage system can be a great option when you're looking for a medium to high density storage solution but are tight on space. In a push back rack system, pallets are loaded on nested carts or shelf trays that ride along rails in the rack frame itself.
Similar to drive in and drive through rack, push back storage systems provide users a high density, easy access pallet storage solution that is ideal for loading and unloading both light duty and heavy duty pallets of like product. The push back rails are supported on an incline and gravity moves the pallet storage carts or trays along the rails toward the front of the rack.
Use a roll or structural pallet rack to support the rear push frame system. They can store pallets of up to 6 depths and 4 heights, making the rear push frame a very efficient LIFO (back-in/first-out) system. This type of dynamic storage system allows you to enjoy all the benefits of a high-density storage system without the disadvantages of a system drive..
