Who isn’t looking for greater storage capacity these days? It’s a familiar need with a lot of possible solutions, some old and some new. Push-back pallet flow bridges the gap as a newer twist on a tried-and-true storage method. Using pallet flow lanes with single aisle load and pick access delivers low profile, deep-lane, easy-to-use storage for First-In/Last-Out inventory rotation.
Take a look at a recent installation of a push-back pallet flow rack system that was able to increase storage capacity for feed & grain producer.
Push-Back Pallet Flow Rack System
- 6-deep push-back system with limited clearance height
- 3 levels high – low profile design increases capacity potential
- 3-rail wheeled pallet flow custom Magnum wheel & I.E. wheel combination
- Bolt-on ramp stops
Designing pallet flow lanes for push-back storage allows for deeper lane storage over traditional cart systems. Push-back pallet flow can go as deep as 12-pallets deep with out the need for carts and with a much lower profile. Pallet flow rails are also more accommodating to varying sizes of pallets.
Push-Back Pallet Flow Rack Advantages
- First-In/Last-Out (FILO) inventory rotation
- 90% more storage capacity vs. selective
- Unique SKU per lane
- Up to 12 pallets deep vs. 5 with push-back carts
- Lower profile vs traditional cart systems
- Easily converts to FIFO inventory rotation
- Promotes selectivity for faster pick rates
Custom Rail Design – Durable & Budget-Friendly
The Mallard team created a custom rail solution for this customer to provide a more budget-friendly, yet durable & dependable application. The rails were created using our Magnum wheels (industry strongest, most reliable wheels) for the first pallet position and then we transition to industry equivalent wheels for the rest of the rail length. The Magnum wheels are built to take the continuous strain from pallet loading and unloading without splitting or cracking under the repeat pressure. Magnum wheels are nearly double the wheel width of I.E. wheels and are manufactured with shielded bearings to further protect against damage.

Easy-to-Install Mounting Brackets
Mallard pallet flow also comes with easy-to-install, custom-configured mounting brackets that save time and money during installation.
Our bolt-on ramp stops are another cost-saving measure. Ramp stops are manufactured using heavy-duty 8-gauge steel to protect against damage; however, our bolt-on design allows for quick replacement of just the ramp stop… no need to change out the whole rail should the stop become damaged.
