2 deep push back rack is an efficient, multi-product storage solution that utilizes the last-in, first-out method (LIFO) which allows for increased density per SKU. Push Back Racks decreases replenishment times drastically since the next pallet flows forward after the first pallet is picked. 2 deep push back rack offers more versatile storage than drive in rack because 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.
As the name of the system suggests, push back racks are the essence here. In this system, a set of rails and a pair of trolleys are placed for each pallet that needs to be stored excluding the last one which is supported by rails. Depending upon the nature of the operation, variable height trolleys can be installed. Push back pallet racking is a system which increases storage capacity and handling capacities, without utilizing much space. It is a compact storage system which can manage 2 to 5 pallets deep. These systems are capable of storing items of different sizes of payload on a standard pallet. The whole systems work on the concept of the accumulation connected to an array of trolleys. The pallets are deposited on the trolleys and then pushed over a rail.
2 deep push back rack is a great storage solution for applications which demand speed and agility. The Last in First Out methodology applied here also helps in keeping things manageable under high volume high-stress logistics operations. Generally, all the pallets excluding the last one are deposited on a set of trolleys. A stark difference here is that, unlike live racking, here only one aisle is engaged in both operations. What that means is you would require only one aisle for loading and unloading. This system is used for homogeneous inventory which can be stored together, and operationally selecting the first or last pallet on the rail level is theoretically same.
●Higher utilization of available pallet positions than most storage systems
●Single aisle for more storage rack area
●Easy rolling carts with large coated wheels
●Low maintenance sealed bearings
●Cart anti-lift-out devices
●Low cart stack height
●Lift trucks never enter the rack
●Universal product storage
●Aisle access to each pick face
●Large number of SKUs and pick faces
