Following is an overview of push back racks, the types of industries that typically use our push back racking, and much more.
How do push back racks function?
Typically, push back rack systems have a pair of inclined rails and a range of nesting carts that ride on the rails. For example, a four-deep lane has three nested carts. The first pallet is placed on the top cart through a forklift. Once you have the second pallet ready to go, you will push the first pallet rack back and carefully place the second pallet rack on the middle cart. Similarly, the third pallet rack pushes back the second, and the first two, and then rests on the bottom cart.
When you unload the push back rack, the process is reversed. Since the rails are inclined toward the aisle, when you pick up the pallet resting on the rails and back out, the three remaining pallets will follow to the front of the lane. Then you can remove each pallet sequentially and until the lane is empty.
