To ensure suitability examine your space before implementing a push back pallet racking system. One side of the inclined structure will be higher at the top so it’s important that your ceiling is high enough to accommodate this. Take note of any potential obstacles including structural columns, sprinklers and heating systems. Consider your pallets in terms of size and volume, and whether you will require direct access to every pallet at any given time. Access is quick and easy with push back pallet racking however as a deep storage system this only applies to the pallets located at the frontal face of the system.
Is stock rotation a priority for your operations? Pallet live racking works in a similar way whilst using the first-in first-out (FIFO) method therefore provides assisted stock rotation. Alternatively, radio shuttle racking is another option that provides deep storage with the option to switch between the FILO and FIFO methods. Using a radio controlled shuttle pallets are transported deep into the lanes although the picking process takes a little more time as the shuttle is first used to bring the pallets forward to allow access.
Our design team here at WSL are highly experienced and would be happy to discuss your requirements and talk you through the options best suited to your operations. We will assess your space and take time to understand your business, how it operates and the specifics of your requirements to help us determine whether push back pallet racking is a viable option for your facility.
