Pushback Racking Systems

pushback-rack-systemsWhat is Pushback Racking and how does it work?

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.

 Advance’s Lo-ProTM Pushback

As the industry’s leading manufacturer of pushback systems, Advance produces nearly half of the systems sold in the United States.  Advance’s Lo-ProTM rack system is recognized as the “gold standard” for low stack height, ease of installation, ease of operation, quality and durability.

To remove a pallet, the fork truck driver lifts the pallet off, reverses slowly and the next pallet comes forward and into the front position.  This operation is repeated until the lane is empty.

Lo-ProTM Pushback warehouse systems are used extensively in high-cube storage facilities and provide superior selectivity and cost benefits when compared with other deep warehouse storage alternatives.  Advance Storage Products’ Lo-ProTM Pushback rack systems are available 2 – 6 deep and require LIFO (Last In First Out) storage applications.

Pushback rack improves existing warehouse storage density up to 25% by eliminating aisles required in a selective rack environment.  In addition, the Lo-ProTM Pushback stores multiple SKU’s and the front loading/unloading capabilities reduce labor costs when compared to double deep and drive-in rack systems.

Pushback Advantages:

  • High density storage
  • Fast operation
  • High selectivity


  • Linked carts:  eliminates the possibility of a load being stranded and suddenly rolling out of control
  • Serrated Pallet Grips:  allows imperfect placement of pallets by “grabbing” the underside of the pallet ensuring that the load remains properly positioned on the cart
  • Captured Carts:  prevents cart lift-out by fork truck operators
  • Low profile (the industry’s lowest stack height measuring 6” on the 6-deep system)
  • Welded Rail Frame:  rails are permanently aligned at the factory to prevent field misalignment and costly maintenance
  • Some options are full support and level carts
