Push Back Racking: Maximizing Space, Optimizing Efficiency

In the world of warehousing and storage, space is a precious commodity. Push Back Racking, also known as Gravity Flow Racking or Dynamic Pallet Racking, offers a ingenious solution to maximize available space while streamlining stock management. This high-density storage system harnesses the power of gravity to store pallets in a compact and organised manner.

The Mechanics Behind Push Back Racking

Imagine a series of nested lanes or racks, each equipped with a set of inclined rails or rollers. Pallets are loaded onto the higher end of the lane, and as new pallets are introduced, they gently nudge the existing pallets back, creating a dense block of stored goods.

When it’s time to retrieve a pallet, the forklift operator simply accesses the front pallet, and the remaining pallets automatically roll forward, filling the vacant space. This seamless process continues until the desired pallet is retrieved, ensuring a continuous flow of stock.

Unlocking the Benefits of Push Back Racking

Space Optimization: By eliminating the need for wide aisles, Push Back Racking can increase storage capacity by up to 90%, making it an ideal solution for warehouses with limited floor area.

Efficient Stock Rotation: Operating on a Last-In, First-Out (LIFO) principle, this racking system ensures that the most recently stored pallets are retrieved first, which is beneficial for products with shorter shelf lives.

Productivity Boost: The streamlined retrieval process reduces travel time and labour costs, increasing overall efficiency and productivity.

Versatility: Push Back Racking can accommodate various pallet sizes and types, making it suitable for a wide range of industries and applications.

Space Utilization: The compact design and deep lane configuration maximize the use of available cubic space, making it an excellent choice for cold storage facilities where maximizing storage capacity is crucial.

Ideal Applications for Push Back Racking

Push Back Racking is particularly well-suited for industries dealing with high volumes of non-perishable goods or products with longer shelf lives, such as automotive parts, building materials, and consumer goods. It is also a valuable solution in cold storage facilities, where maximising storage capacity is essential while maintaining a LIFO stock rotation.

In summary, Push Back Dynamic Pallet Racking is an innovative storage solution that maximizes space utilization, optimizes stock rotation, and improves overall productivity, making it an ideal choice for businesses seeking to streamline their warehousing operations.

We are also able to undertake full relocations, modifications, repairs and re-configurations to the majority of pallet racking products within existing storage systems in line with manufacturers / S.E.M.A. and F.E.M. standards, with appropriate load notices fitted.
