Pushback racking is a type of pallet storage system that allows pallets to be stored on both sides of an aisle, providing higher density storage than other rack systems. When the first pallet is loaded from the front, it sits on the first cart. When the second pallet is loaded, it pushes the first pallet behind it back one position. This process continues for up to six pallets deep.
When you need a first-in-first-out warehouse storage solution, Flow Rack Systems may be the right material handling option for your facility. Pallet Flow Rack Systems provide very high-density storage in applications that must have first in, first out storage (FIFO). With Pallet Flow Rack Systems, the pallets are loaded into the back end of the warehouse storage system and flow to the front end on wheels or rollers. On systems over 3 pallets deep, a braking system is typically provided.
