Push Back Rack Systems

In push back rack systems, pallets are placed on nested rolling carts, which slide from the front of the pallet racks to the rear of the pallet rack on a gently graded slope. Pallets are both loaded and unloaded from the same front facing aisle. As new pallets are loaded into the push back pallet rack from the aisle side of the rack system, existing pallets are pushed to the rear to make space. Push Back pallet racks utilize standard fork lifts. Push back racking can be installed in a standard warehouse or as the supporting structure in a push back rack supported building. Push back racks are an excellent choice to create high-density storage if First-In/First-Out inventory rotation is not a requirement.

Selective structural racks provide fast access from the aisle to each individual pallet. Selective structural pallet racking systems are the most widely used pallet racking system, are very versatile, and are the best choice for fast moving products. Installation options include high rise structural pallet rack supported buildings as well as installation in warehouses racking and distribution centers.

Push Back Racking Systems Cost Savings

The availability of pre-formed structural steel makes structural racks an economical storage system, while providing heavy load capacity and high impact resistance. Uprights and beams are of heavy wall construction,  further reinforcements are added to the uprights to enable structural rack to resist damage from forklifts.
