Colby Delivers High-Density Storage to Australian DCs With New Push-Back Pallet Racking Solution

Dematic has launched a new high-density storage solution for warehouse operations - Colby Push-Back Pallet Racking. 

Colby Push-Back Pallet Racking provides high-density storage where pallets are stored up to six pallets deep. Using a forklift, pallets are pushed back on carts on inclined rails mounted inside the racking. As a pallet is withdrawn, the cart holding a pallet behind automatically slides forward to the front position.

Push-Back Pallet Racking is a great alternative to double-deep or drive-in racking because it makes great use of space, while still allowing fast and easy access to stock. The system operates on a First In Last Out (FILO) basis.

Colby’s new racking is ideal for bulk storage, order consolidation, and despatch. Dematic’s structural engineers have designed the system with safety, integrity, and reliability in mind. All carts are of rigid frame construction and run on large wheel bearings for smooth performance. The rails enclose the wheels, preventing any dislodgement of the carts and keeping the running surface free of debris. Stopper plates locate the pallets securely on all carts.

 “We understand that safety and optimal equipment lifespan is a key focus for warehouse operators and that’s why we are committed to developing the best products possible,” said Tony Woodlock, Director Storage Equipment, Dematic.

Colby’s Push-Back Pallet Racking includes all the superior features of Colby’s selective racking: the diamond-slot profile, which provides a stronger and more efficient interlock between upright and beam; front and rear upright protectors to avoid damage; and rack end protection for worker safety.

Colby Storage Solutions combine the flexibility of a national network of independent distributors, with the resources of global materials handling leader Dematic. Dematic manufactures Colby storage equipment in Australia, to the highest possible standards, and at a competitive price.
