What is Push Back Pallet Racking

Push back pallet racking is a type of pallet racking system used in warehouses and distribution centers to store and organize large quantities of inventory, allowing pallets to be stored from 2- to 6-pallets deep on either side of an aisle. It is designed to maximize storage density while maintaining easy accessibility to goods.

In a push back rack system, pallets are loaded onto wheeled carts that roll along inclined rails set at a slight angle. As new pallets are loaded into the system, they push the existing pallets back one position. When a pallet is removed from the front of the rack, the remaining pallets roll forward to fill the empty space.

This type of racking system is ideal for high-density storage of multiple SKUs with low to medium inventory rotation. It allows for maximum use of available space while providing efficient and convenient access to stored items.

Overview of Push Back Pallet Racking:

Push back pallet racking systems increase storage density and let you make the most of your available warehouse space.  These systems give users the unique advantage of increasing pallet count with minimal impact on access to SKUs.  These have skyrocketed in popularity in recent years thanks to its ease of use and ability to increase pallet storage density.  In terms of initial cost, they are usually more expensive than selective or drive in pallet rack.  However, gains in efficiency and storage density can yield long-term profits that make push back racking a smart investment for many applications.  Like many dynamic systems, push back racking is often constructed at least in part with structural rack.
