Extra Storage Density
Push Back Rack Systems use warehouse space efficiently for maximum pallet storage density. With an increasing number of products, and warehouse storage space at a premium, Push Back Rack is the perfect answer to increase pallet count, providing more pallet pick faces than traditional pallet rack systems by eliminating aisles.
Push Back Rack also offers excellent pallet accessibility from the aisle, as there is no longer any need to drive into the pallet racking.
The higher the number of pallets and the deeper the lane, the more efficient Push Back Rack will be.
The UNARCO Push Back System is flexible, for up to six pallets deep, and can be arranged in back-to-back islands or stand-alone runs. There is no limit to the height of the Push Back System other than the reach of your fork truck or ceiling height. Push Back Rack is even available for freezer and cooler applications, and can be coated with hot zinc for longevity.
UNARCO Push Back Rack Systems’ low profile cart stack leaves plenty of clearance room for pallets and can even allow for adding another picking level.
Because the LIFO stock rotation is automatic and pallets are easily accessible, Push Back Rack is the perfect high occupancy storage application.
The simple rotation of stock with a Push Back System can be achieved by utilizing side-by-side lanes for similar product with varying dates. As new product arrives adjacent, Push Back lanes can be occupied up to six pallets deep so that pallets from the same date occupy the same lane and may be pulled from the aisle. Likewise, duplicate pallets with a different date can be pulled up to six deep in the next lane.
- Steel cart and rail systems allow for easy flow of carts forward to the aisle-picking location
- Dense storage is limited only by ceiling height and pallet reach truck lift capabilities
- Push Back Systems function up to six pallets deep
- The system uses LIFO stock rotation – automatically fed by gravity
Push Back storage takes aisles out of your warehouse as it packs pallets back to back and is a great solution for:
High-cube storage facilities
Large pallet counts
Cold storage and refrigerated areas
E-commerce, omni-channel and multi-channel operations
Warehouses with a small footprint and a large number of pallets to store
Warehouse and distribution square footage is at a premium today, and Push Back Rack’s high-density storage maximizes a small footprint. Placing pallets back to back as many as six pallets deep, with fewer aisles, frees up space and creates better warehouse flow. Store multiple pallets in each pallet position and have automatic aisle selectivity. Push Back Rack is perfect for pallet storage in distribution centers with fewer SKU counts, but a large number of pallets.

Push Back Gravity Flow
Because pallets are packed in such close proximity and high density in a Push Back system, drivers must be conscious of the automatic flow of pallets. Each load should be removed slowly to allow for a proper flow speed as the pallet behind is moved forward to the picking position.
