Pitch-Rail Pushback Pallet Rack Pallet Stopper

Pallets loaded inside a lane are held by a 1’’ front pallet stop.

To unload, the driver simply lifts front pallet higher than pallet stop. As the driver backs-up, pallets in back automatically advance based on the effect of gravity because of the angled rails.

Each track has a rear safety pallet stop installed to prevent risk of accidently overloading the lane.

A yellow z-hook is placed on the back beam in the same way as on front of the system. because this keeps pallets from moving too far.

Pitch-Rail Pushback Pallet Rack lane has only two tracks bottom pallet boards

If the storage lane has only two tracks the bottom pallet boards must be at least 3.25’’ wide. This is because rollers have 3’’ center-to-center spacing.

Pitch-Rail Pushback Pallet Rack 3 tracks per lane

Use 3 tracks per lane for heavy loads, weak pallets, or pallets with narrow bottom boards.

Pitch-Rail Pushback Pallet Rack installed on any type of beam

Can be installed on any type of beam: roll-form (box or step) or structural beams.

Standard track lengths: (based on 48’’ deep pallet with no product overhang)

2 deep: 99’’ + width of front and back beam

3 deep: 147’’

4 deep: 198’’

5 deep: 246’’

6 deep: 297’’

Example: 3 deep lane with 2’’ box beams = 147’’ + 2’’ front beam + 2 ‘’ back beam = 151’’ overall track length.

3 deep rack design: front upright 54’’ + opening 49’’ + rear upright 48’’ = 151’’

Benefits of Ordering A Test Lane For Your Pitch-Rail Pushback Pallet Rack:

  • Firstly, because you can see the system in action from up-close.
  • Secondly, you can validate pallets are compatible with the system.
  • Required track pitch will be confirmed so pallets advance to the front when unloading
  • Validate if center track is required or not because you don’t want to order center tracks if you don’t need them.
  • Allows lift-operators opportunity to practice loading / unloading
  • Quick install
  • The lane is easy to dismantle & ship elsewhere if required.
