Push Back system significantly reduce aisles and maximize storage density


What is Push Back racking?

Push Back racking is a method that allows pallets to be stored on both sides of the aisle, containing from 2 to 6 pallets, thereby increasing the storage density significantly 3 times compared to other systems.

Each Push Back pallet racking consists of a rail designed to lean toward the import or export direction and a series of stacked sledges, placed on the track.

Depending on the storage strategy, amount of inventory and space of the warehouse, the number of sleds can be customized. But usually they will typically range from 2 to 5 units.

How does Push Back rack system work?

If a lane contains 4 pallets, the track has 3 interlocking trolleys. The Push Back rack works according to the following principles:

Loading: The first pallet to be put on the rack by the forklift. The operator moves the 2nd pallet. When it reaches the top of the shelf, the 2nd pallet will push the first back in and fill the empty position. Similarly, the 3rd pallet pushes back the first 2 pallets. The process continues until the last pallet also pushes back the first 3 pallets.

Unloading: Pallet is imported last, exported first. Because the track design is inclined towards the aisle, so that the operator unloads the pallet closest to the aisle, pallets behind it will slide along the track running towards the aisle. The removed pallet acts as the brake for the following pallets. Waiting until the operator takes the first pallet, pallets are then taken out one by one.



Excellent advantages of Push Back pallet racking

Why is the this system easily "attractive" to many investors?

- Push Back pallet racking is considered to be the most optimal storage solution for warehouses with a narrow area but large quantity storage requirements.

- Reducing aisle space, turning empty space into a high-density pallet storage solution.

- Storing multiple SKUs of medium to high volume.

- The capacity is similar to Drive in rack, but the selectivity feature is improved.

- The speed of import and export rises rapidly: pallets move quickly on the slide. The operator does not need to spend lots of time and effort moving the forklift into the system.

Thanks to that, the possibility of a collision between the forklift and the package is reduced, avoiding unfortunate incidents.

It isn’t difficult to understand why Push Back rack is now being used by businesses.
