About Push Back Racks
Push Back Racking is a great product that will give you a dense, dynamic storage system to store palletized goods. Push back is loaded from the front of the rack by pushing pallets toward the back. When product is removed, the next pallet in line will 'flow' forward on rails. The pallets themselves rest on nested carts or trays that store within one another. Push Back racking is a very good pallet rack system when you have many pallets of material that don't need to be rotated very often. Push back and drive in racking storage racks are also similar in terms of concept (high storage density) however push back racking offers easier retrieval of pallets because the pallets automatically flow to the front of the rack system. The main difference between a pallet flow rail system and a push back rack system is that with pallet flow, you can store pallets much more deeply than with push back.
One other difference that sets push back and drive in apart is the amount of SKUs that you are able to store with each system. Given an identical footprint, height and pallet position count, the push back racking will be able to store more SKUs than the drive in rack. This is because within a push back system, you can have a SKU for each pick face. In a drive in rack system, you would only typically have a different SKU in each bay.

"When storing items on cantilever rack, it's important to make sure to have equal distances between uprights so that all arms share the entire weight of the load evenly."
