Push Back Racking Systems & Trolleys
What are Push Back Racks?
Push-Back racking provides high-density live storage where quick and easy access to loads is required within your warehouse. Pallets are loaded into the racking system on telescopic trolleys (carts), each trolley being pushed back into the rack by the incoming pallet.
Pallets can be stored two, three or even four deep. Pallets are loaded and unloaded from the same aisle face, which reduces truck travel distances, and cuts cycle times.
Loaded trolleys return to the face of the rack when the previous pallet is unloaded, The unique design of Speedlock push back trolleys allows mixed product and pallet types, including poor-quality pallets, to be stored in the same rack, even in the same lane. A range of trolley sizes is available to suit all types and sizes of pallets. Colour coding of trolleys aids stock identification, and a unique multi-wheel design ensures trolleys run smoothly and reliably, even in the demanding environment of a cold store.
Push-back racking can also be used to provide additional storage space in otherwise unusable areas such as above cross-aisles or around dock levellers. When fully utilised, very high occupancy rates can be achieved, compared to Drive-In racking or Block stacking.
