Push Back Racking

Installers of Push Back Racking

Effectively utilising floor space, Dynamic Push back racking is amongst the most space and time-efficient pallet storage systems we design and install.
Over the years we have been installers for most racking manufacturers including Dexion, Apex, but we prefer to specify Link 51 pallet racking as the basis of any system wherever possible as it is a quality british manufactured pallet racking system that is also very cost effective. If you would prefer to use a different manufacturers racking to match your existing systems we will be happy to quote on that make instead.

Pallets are retrieved on a ‘first-in, last-out’ basis and with each product having a dedicated lane, Dynamic Push back racks are particularly useful in marshalling areas, and for long-term bulk storage and handling.

How does Push Back Racking work?

The basic system is formed using traditional warehouse Pallet Racking of your chosen manufacturer (we recommend Link 51 Pallet Racking as it is a very sturdy british made product yet still very cost effective).
The pallet racking layout is not traditional though as you build two runs of racking using the required upright frames and beams behind each other with around a 200-300mm gap between them (depending on the size of the pallet), onto which galvanised steel runners are fixed at a slight incline, with "pallet caddies" or "pallet trollies" mounted on them at each pallet level.

The first pallet at each pallet position is loaded onto the caddy / trolley, then the next pallet is used to push the caddy pallet backwards before lowering the pallet into position.
When removing the front pallets on each level the rear pallet naturally moves forward into the picking position ready for retrieval.

Pallets are loaded in sequence onto wheeled carriers of differing heights and are pushed back along inclined steel guide channels to utilise the full depth of the rack.
Pallets can be stored up to four deep and when a load is retrieved the remaining pallets roll forward into position at the picking face.
