All loads are stored and retrieved from the aisle. Pallets in each lane rest on a cart on a rail that slopes gently toward the front.
When a new pallet is placed into a lane, it ‘pushes back’ all the pallets behind it. When a pallet is retrieved, the pallets in that lane roll forward to fill the empty position. Fork Lifts never enter the racking.
The ideal application for Push Back Racking will be where all loads in a lane are identical and first-in/first-out stock rotation is not crucial.
