Push Back Rack Close Up

Heavy-Duty Construction - Push Back Rack

UNARCO’s Push Back Rack rail and cart system is durable, with stainless-steel cartwheels with heavy-duty bearings for continuous flow. High Push Back Rack cart capacities include sturdy welded-steel construction that can withstand the constant daily beating from dropping pallet after pallet.

Push Back carts nest within each other for a low stack height that leaves more room for vertical pallet height and product storage. To help drivers visualize the pallet position on the cart, UNARCO can color-code the cart system vertically with alternating paint colors. In dense systems, this code can help drivers identify the number of pallets within each Push Back Rack lane.

Rubber bumpers are located on the inside of the front Push Back Rack system rail to ensure a smooth stop as the pallet arrives at the picking position. Bumpers help with impact, as heavy pallet loads often can cause increased cart speed.

Push Back lanes are equipped with heavy-gauge safety pallet stops to ensure that as the cart rolls forward to the aisle-picking position, the pallet remains on the Push Back cart. Pallet stops are easily adjustable as lane pitch changes with the number of pallets in depth.

Notched Push Back rails help protect carts from uplift within the bay during pallet flow, which keeps the carts linked and helps eliminate product damage or cart derailment. Rail supports are located at the center beams to help keep the Push Back system aligned. The number of rail supports will vary, depending on system depth and the weight loads of the pallets used.

Push Back Rack carts and rails are manufactured with sturdy components, including structural steel, stainless-steel wheels, and heavy-duty bearings.

System Highlights:

Push Back Rack components are a combination of roll-formed and structural steel, with the following features:

  • Welded cart frames come pre-assembled

  • Pallet grips can be added to help product placement

  • Stainless steel wheel systems for freezer applications

  • Galvanized options are available for freezers and cold storage areas

  • Full-support carts can be designed for problem pallets

Up close, the UNARCO cart and rail system shows how years of engineering experience created a design that has evolved along with pallets. Our carts and rails’ heavy-duty construction and the durable finish applied to all components are visible as you look down the aisle. In addition, the stainless-steel finish on every Push Back Rail cartwheel is designed for years of flow.

Efficient Engineering

UNARCO Push Back Rack systems combine roll-formed steel with structural steel for the lightest design with the highest pallet load capacity per lane. Such efficient engineering keeps costs down while allowing for a high-strength system.

No company has more push back experience than UNARCO. From warehouse to freezer and even on mezzanines, UNARCO can make an engineered push back system work to improve efficiency in your warehouse. For more photos of Push Back Rack systems, view the UNARCO Push Back Rack Photo Gallery.
