Pushback pallet racking provides a dense storage solution by minimising the number of aisles required to access loads which are stored several pallets deep, being loaded and unloaded from the same face of the rack.

Pushback can be very effective when incorporated into picking systems and other applications where it is able to utilise storage space which would not be accessible for other storage systems (see graphic below).

There are two main construction types, firstly using stacked trolleys which run on track sections fixed to pallet racking beams. The second type uses roller track sections, again fixed to the pallet racking beams.

Both types of pushback use gravity to bring the pallets forward to the aisle face, load speed being governed by the slope of the track sections whilst roller systems can also incorporate speed controllers.

The number of pallets stored in the depth can vary, most commonly between 2 and 4 although deeper storage lanes are also possible.

Most standard mechanical handling equipment can be used with pushback systems without modification.
