Push Back Rack
Push back rack is designed for last-in, first-out (LIFO) inventory management. Push back systems utilize the warehouse cube to reduce required aisle space, making it a high-density pallet storage solution.
How It Works
In push back rack, the rack uses carts that move along inclined rails. Each pallet is loaded from the front of the system on to a cart. Using the next pallet, the first is slowly pushed until it is aligned with the next available cart. When the front pallet is unloaded, the next pallet glides to the front for picking.
The rack can range from 2 to 6 pallets deep. It can be as high as needed, depending on the retrieval method. Variable bay widths are available to accommodate single-wide or double-wide pallet rows. A REB engineer can assess your space to make sure you get an ideal layout.
Our push back systems have a number of options to suit special applications. These include cart covers and welded struts to accept wire decks.
