What is push-back pallet racking?

Push-back racking is a system of high-density racking that relies on shelves of rollers or carts/shuttles at a slight angle to provide a live racking solution. Pallets, often multiple of the same SKU, can be pushed into place one in front of the other and then unloaded easily with the next pallet simply sliding into position to be unloaded next.

It requires minimal aisle space and can drastically optimise storage space usage in warehouses with up to six pallets stored behind one another.

What is push-back pallet racking?

As with most forms of racking, push-back pallet racking comes in a few different types. Not only can you customise the height and depth of your racking, but you can also select the strength you need based on your expected weight requirements.

With D&R Racking, you can also choose whether to invest in a new push-back racking system or opt for a quality-approved used option.

Push-back racking – cost and dimensions

 

Push-back racking is available in a huge range of sizes and can be tailored to suit your needs and available space. However, some common sizes include widths of either 48”/122cm (single wide) or 96”/244cm (double-wide), and between 8’/2.44m and 20’/6.10m tall, with 2-6 pallets’ worth of depth.  

Push-back racking costs will depend on where in this range your needs lie, as well as whether you opt for a new or used option.

How is push-back racking used in warehouses?

Push-back racking operates using a Last-In, First-Out (LIFO) system that commonly benefits medium-turnover goods such as those in retail, food, beverage, and distribution. In the case of food and beverages, the LIFO system helps ensure that goods don’t expire while in storage.

Push-back racking system in warehouses are used for increasing storage density, as more stock can be condensed into the same floorspace while simplifying inventory management and improving the efficiency and productivity of storage facilities.

Used D&R to relocate some pallet racking and dismantle an unused section of racking. The guys who came to do the work were very professional, got straight on with the work and cleaned up after themselves. Very good service.

Push-back racking – FAQs

What is the cost of push-back pallet racking?

Push-back racking costs will vary depending on the size of the racking system you opt for, as well as whether you decide to go for a new push-back racking system or an approved used one.

What are the disadvantages of push-back racking?

Push-back racking disadvantages include: 

  • Limitations on the number of pallets that can be stored on one shelf
  • Small losses in vertical storage capacity as a result of the sloped shelf angle
  • While useful for many applications, the FILO system doesn’t suit all needs
  • Only the front pallets are immediately accessible
  • Not all loads are sturdy enough to stay together when shelved using push-pack systems

How are push-back racking systems dimensioned?

Push-back racking dimensions will depend on your needs, as systems can be scaled to suit whatever requirements you have.

What is the difference between pallet flow and push-back?

Push-back racking operates on a FILO system, whereas pallet flow racking uses a First In, First Out (FIFO) system. FILO systems can yield fantastic efficiencies for some goods, but if you’re managing frequent expiry dates as with some products in the food and beverage industry, then the FIFO system used in pallet flow racking will work better.

What are the relative advantages and disadvantages of push-back racks compared to pallet racks?

Push-back racking disadvantages are relatively limited and include some issues such as limitations on the number of pallets that can be stored on one shelf, small losses in vertical storage capacity, and the fact that FILO systems don’t suit all applications.

However, the advantages of push-back racking include drastic improvements in available storage space, very low maintenance requirements, increased cost efficiencies, and reduced exposure to possible forklift damage.
