Push-back racking is a live storage system for accumulation of pallets, just like the Live Pallet Racking FIFO system (AR Live Storage), but designed for LIFO type load management (last pallet in, first pallet out).
Push-back racking for pallets has a single loading and unloading area, at the front of the structure, and the unit loads are stored by pushing the previous ones towards the back of the rack.
Depending on the movement system used to move the pallets, there are two types of Push-Back Racking:
Like other live storage solutions, it is a high-density storage system, which optimises the available storage space.
It can also be combined with other storage systems which makes it a versatile solution.

Push-Back Racking (LIFO)
The push-back racking system is a live storage solution for pallets formed by a compact structure, where unit loads are moved by means of rollers or shuttles with the aid of a slight incline.
It is a system especially designed for LIFO stock management (Last in, First out), where the last pallet placed on the rack is the first to be unloaded.
Unlike FIFO live storage, which needs one aisle for loading and another for unloading, in push-back racking, the forklift accesses the stored unit loads along a single work aisle.
Exerting a pushing force is used to place a new pallet, where the forklift pushes the unit loads already stored towards the back, making space for the new pallet to be deposited, hence the term “push-back”.
The unloading process uses the force of gravity, is performed in the same location as the loading and is similar to the FIFO type live storage. When the first unit load is unloaded, the following positions slide in a controlled way towards the unloading position.

Push-Back Live Storage System Structure:
The Push-Back Live Storage Racking system for pallets consists of a base metal structure of frames, beams, crossbeams and dynamic profiles with the common quality features of the rest of AR Racking’s pallet racking systems.
The components that distinguish this system from the rest are its sets of shuttles or rollers which generate the live system and the movement inside the structure. These elements also include safety accessories for braking and controlling the unit loads.
