Carts and Rails Move Pallets Forward Automatically Within a Push Back Rack System
The Push Back Rack cart system is a gravity-driven system engineered specifically for the number of pallets that are to be stored. The UNARCO Push Back Rack system can be from two to five pallets deep, and the carts are secured and glide easily along sturdy rails. The heavy-duty system helps reduce maintenance problems, and the carts’ thin profile allows for maximum product storage and available vertical space between beams.
Each Push Back Rack cart has four stainless-steel skate wheels that rest on the rail in a configuration that keeps the entire system working in unison. The steel carts provide ample support and may be engineered specifically to accommodate applications with damaged or unstable pallets.
UNARCO Push Back Rack carts’ low-profile vertical clearance keeps pallet storage as dense as possible. Carts are engineered for pallet size and style to maintain gravity flow and allow for proper placement within the Push Back Rack system. Special cart systems can be developed for pallets in poor condition or odd-size pallets.
Push Back Rack carts can be color-coded so that drivers can tell how many pallets are behind the pallet located in the picking position. Each cart will be powder-coated a different color so that each pallet position will be easily identifiable to the forklift drivers.
Specially sealed wheels allow Push Back Racks to be installed in freezers and cold storage areas, yet still maintain reliable pallet flow. The wheels come pre-assembled and are built to last for years of flow.
Specialty Push Back Rack carts can be designed for custom pallets or containers.
Push Back Rack carts save space and are a versatile answer to dense pallet storage, with other features that include the following:
Carts can be stored two to six pallets deep
Low stack height of carts
Carts are welded with sturdy C-Channel construction
Linked push back carts prevent stray or runaway pallets
Custom cart designs can be engineered for odd-sized pallets or containers
Push Back Rack systems are available in both structural or roll-formed designs, are integrated easily into any standard pallet rack uprights, and provide years of reliable flow. The UNARCO cart system has been in use for decades, facilitating gravity-fed picking in warehouses and distribution centers across the U.S.
For LIFO, high-density storage with front-loading and -unloading capabilities that keep drivers from entering the racking system, Push Back Rack carts offer a cost-effective solution.

Helping Drivers Locate Pallets in the Push Back System
The powder-coated paint finish on all Push Back carts can be color-coded to help forklift drivers know that they are within each lane. Each cart can be painted a different color so that each pallet position will be easily identifiable. More than just a colorful system, it is a great way to help keep drivers aware of pallets and locations.
