A push back racking pallet storage system can be a great option when you're looking for a medium to high density storage solution but are tight on space. In a push back rack system, pallets are loaded on nested carts or shelf trays that ride along rails in the rack frame itself, and push back when another pallet is added.
Push back rack systems are supported using either roll form or structural pallet rack. They can store multiple sized pallets up to six deep and four high, making pushback rack a very efficient LIFO (Last In/First Out) system. This type of dynamic storage system allows you to have all the benefits of a high-density storage system without the drawbacks of a drive in system.
