Push back racking (also referred to as “pushback” racking) is a pallet storage method that allows you to store pallets from two to six deep on either side of an aisle, thereby giving you higher storage density than other forms of racking. By using a push back rack system, you can double or triple your storage compared to standard pallet rack or double-deep racking systems.
A push back racking system is a metal structure with rails consisting of rollers, nested carts or shuttles to provide maneuverability. An operator loads the first pallet onto the front of the rack like normal. When it comes time to load the second pallet, the rollers push the first unit backward to make room.
An operator performs the reverse sequence when unloading. The system allows for easy removal of each unit until the rack is empty.
Push back racking is modular, meaning you can combine it with your other shelving and storage systems to create a flexible configuration based on your warehouse’s workflow.
Almost any operation that requires storage can benefit from a push back racking system, especially if there’s significant pallet usage inside your facility. Several examples of specific applications include:
