Is a Push-Back Pallet Racking System Right for my Warehouse?
A push-back pallet racking system has many advantages and differs from gravity live storage systems such as Pallet Live in that push-back systems are designed for LIFO (last in, first out) warehouse management. The loading and unloading of each pallet is carried out from the same aisle where a forklift truck is used to deposit pallets up to four deep.
Types of Push-Back Pallet Racking
The mechanics of a push back pallet racking operation is around the process of one unit load i.e. pallet of goods, being used to ‘push-back’ any existing unit loads from within the selected aisle towards the back of the racking structure and is achieved by either rollers or shuttles through the high density storage system.
For unloading of pallet loads, the slight incline of the push back racking structure allows the flow of pallets forward to the front of the pick face.
There are two types of the push back system put-back pallet racking systems to consider depending on the element used to facilitate movement of the pallet, namely rollers or shuttles.
For push-back pallet racking using rollers, the pallets are pushed towards the back of the racking by sliding on roller beds fixed to the structure which have a slight incline. Where a push-back pallet racking system uses shuttles, here the pallets are loaded onto a series of shuttles, which are placed on rails, also with a slight incline.
