Push Back Pallet Racking

Push Back Racking systems combine high density steel storage with more versatility than Drive-In racking because each lane flows independently.  The Push Back racking system operates on the LAST IN, FIRST OUT (LIFO principle) per lane.  Multiple Pallets are stored on a gravity-fed cart system, allowing retrieval of the pallets from the face of the rack. 

Push Back racking systems are custom designed from 2 to 6 pallets deep.  Height is only restricted by the lift truck reach.  Push Back racking systems are normally used against a wall or in back-to-back rows.
