A Push Back Racking System combines standard selective pallet racking with a cart and rail system that sets on horizontal load beams. But the advantage over standard selective racking is that you can have up to 9 pallet positions deep (side by side on a beam level).
These systems can go multiple levels high and can be designed to go 30′ or higher (depending on your warehouse). The difference between Drive in Racks over Push Back Rack is when you remove the first pallet, the pallet behind it rolls forward at a very slow and controlled speed (making the second pallet ready for picking).
They also offer greater density, selectivity and time savings over all other types of racking systems. They’re especially good for food distributors, frozen food warehouses, and distribution centers that have a high pallet turnover.
A Push Back Racking System is considered a reverse flow storage unit. It operates in a Last In – First Out (LIFO) storage configuration, but you can easily rotate your stock on a First In-First Out (FIFO) configuration by simply never storing new lots in front of the previous lot. Push Back Rack System also tend to have a greater life span because it takes less abuse from the forklift drivers.
Despite an initial high cost, these systems are actually less expensive than Drive In Storage Systems in the long run because of the reduction of handling time (shaving off time on each pick), and they take less storage space to provide the same storage capacity.
