Push Back Racking?

Push Back Racking is a high-density storage solution that maximizes both floor space and pallet count. Unlike traditional systems, it utilises a “Last-In, First-Out” (LIFO) approach, providing easy access to multiple SKUs while maintaining efficiency.

Key Features of Push Back Racking

  1. Dynamic Pallet Storage: Push Back Racking allows for the dynamic storage of pallets on both depth and height, optimising available space. The system enables you to store multiple pallets of the same SKU in a single lane.
  2. Efficient Space Utilisation: With its unique design, Push Back Racking eliminates the need for numerous aisles. This results in significantly increased storage density, making it an ideal solution for businesses with limited floor space.
  3. Time and Labor Savings: The “gravity flow” design of Push Back Racking ensures that pallets slide forward for easy retrieval. This not only enhances accessibility but also reduces the time and labor required for material handling.
  4. Customisable Configurations: Tailor the Push Back Racking system to suit your warehouse layout and product specifications. Our customizable configurations offer flexibility, ensuring the system seamlessly integrates into your workflow.

Applications of Push Back Racking

  • Temperature-Controlled Environments: Ideal for cold storage facilities, Push Back Racking efficiently stores perishable goods.
  • Fast-Moving Product Storage: Perfect for industries with a high pallet turnover rate, such as retail distribution centers.
  • Bulk Storage: Optimise your warehouse space by efficiently storing large quantities of the same SKU.

Benefits of Push Back Racking

  • Increased Storage Density: Achieve higher storage capacity compared to traditional systems.
  • Time and Labor Efficiency: Improve efficiency in material handling and reduce the need for extensive aisle space.
  • Enhanced Accessibility: Easily access and retrieve pallets from various depths without disturbing neighboring loads.

Advantages of this system

  • Accessibility - All lanes can be accessed from the aisle at any time irrespective of the storage level
  • Maintenance costs - Slow or fast movement of loads within lanes, requires little maintenance
  • Applications - This type of system is well suited to the task of load marshalling, allowing up to six loads to be stored in each lane. It’s also great for bulk storage and bulk handling
  • Identification - Each load in the depth can be identified by track-mounted ‘flags’ located on the access face

Pallet Racking Systems

Adjustable Pallet Racking

This is the most common form of pallet racking. APR is a system of beams clipped into frames.

In general the beams support the pallet but on occasions the pallet is also supported by timber decking, mesh decking or pallet support bars.

Very Narrow Aisle Racking

Very Narrow Aisle Racking

Very Narrow Aisle Racking is generally used in warehouses which are a little tighter on space.

Using a narrow aisle Forklift truck allows you to access all pallets, lifting higher and working faster than standard counterbalance trucks.

Drive-In Racking

Drive-in Racking

Drive-in Racking is an ideal system for large quantities of the same type of product. It is a variation to block stacking.

It works on the principle of first in last out so is not particularly good for stock rotation.

push back racking

Push Back Racking

Push Back Racking systems are designed around the principle of organising space by depth rather than width.

This depth arrangement greatly reduces aisle space and increases storage density.

shuttle racking

Shuttle Racking

Shuttle Racking is an alternative to Drive In racking or Live Storage Racking.

The idea is that each lane is a single product but unlike drive in racking not all products within the bay need to be the same thus allowing greater density of storage.

Live Storage Racking

Live Storage Racking is a system where pallets are put onto rollers at one end and they can then run down the rollers to be picked off at the other end.

It is a relatively expensive storage solution but can improve efficiency in many warehouses.

Mobile Pallet Racking

The Mobile Pallet Racking consist of units of conventional pallet racking mounted on a steel framed base.

This system is installed over guided mobile bases that slide laterally, eliminating the need for aisles.

Special Racking

Carpets, carpet pads and rolls of vinyl are inefficiently stored on pallets, which is why carpet racks are a much better storage alternative to maximize your valuable floor space. A system that is good for storing rolled up lengths of material such as carpet.
