The push-back trolley system is an alternative to push-back racks that is gentle on goods. It provides the same benefits and range of possible applications, but in addition, it allows the storage of goods without dynamic pressure. This is because the unit loads are put on trolleys with a level load deck. This also makes the push-back trolley system independent of the quality of the pallets. Due to the inclination of the tracks, the trolleys automatically travel back in the direction of the loading side.
- Efficient solution for the storage of the same types of articles according to the “Last In – First Out“ principle (LIFO)
- Also suitable for damaged or shrink wrapped pallets
- Equally suitable for pallet cages, steel pallets or pallets stored crosswise
- Lengthwise and crosswise storage of load carriers is possible
- Mixed storage of different pallets and pallet cages in one channel
- Particularly suitable for use in deep-freeze areas
- Rail system
- Push-Back Trolley
- Top-hat profile
- IPG beam (angle bracket)
Additional accessories such as collision guard elements, protective fences or roofing and wall cladding comply with the multi-storage rack system
Benefits of the GALLER Push-Back Trolley System
- No dynamic pressure during removal – pallets do not touch each other
- The pallets always stand horizontally during storage and removal
- Sensitive goods or goods stacked unstably remain intact at all times.
- Operation also possible with devices WITHOUT mast inclination
- The trolleys run particularly smoothly on steel rollers with ball bearings.
- Thanks to the low 2.5 degrees inclination of the rail track, only a small amount of push force is required for storage – even for heavy pallets.
- Quick information on the filling level via colour-coded limit plates.
- Extremely low maintenance system components that are easy to replace
- Easily mounted – existing pallet racks can be retrofitted without problems
- Special dimensions and higher load capacities possible for special pallets
Pallets with different characteristics can be stored without problems
up to a maximum of 5 pallets (4 trolleys)
up to 6 pallets
Up to a max. of 1,000 kg per trolley,
higher weight possible as special model
1. Pallet place 40 mm
2. Pallet place 90 mm
3. Pallet place 120 mm
4. Pallet place 150 mm
5. Pallet place 180 mm
If it is empty, all the trolleys are stacked above each other. For storage, the top (largest) trolley is loaded with a pallet. The next unit load pushes this trolley to special limit plates at the rear– the goods do not touch each other. This releases the next trolley on which the pallet is placed. This is repeated until the channel is full (up to five trolleys in a row are possible). The last pallet is placed directly on the rails. Removal from storage is carried out in the reverse sequence. Due to the inclination of the tracks, the trolleys automatically travel back in the direction of the loading side. The push-back trolley system can also be operated with forklifts without mast inclination due to the horizontal storage level.
Push-Back Trolley Horizontal Model
Horizontal storage with the push-back trolley protects goods
- The horizontal trolleys are designed at an angle, and they compensate for the inclination of the rail system
- The upper storage area of the horizontal push-back trolley is horizontal
- The unit loads are always set horizontally on the trolley
- Horizontal, angled pallets do not touch each other during storage
- Push forces during storage do not go into the goods but into the stable trolley
- Damage to the stored goods and tipping over of stacked boxes is prevented
- It is possible to work with the standard operating devices without mast inclination
- It is easier for the operator, thereby saving time and increasing efficiency
- Summary: overall more productive, faster loading/unloading and less damage
- Particularly beneficial in deep-freeze areas Cooling air circulates between the individual free-standing unit loads
Push-Back Trolley Standard Model
Systems for operating devices with mast inclination and for non-sensitive goods
There is also a less expensive variant available for non-sensitive goods: In this case, the trolleys adopt the 3.5 degrees inclination of the rail system. The upper storage area of the trolley thus has a corresponding inclination. Devices with mast inclination are used for operation.
Push-back trolley in the pallet rack system
- Rack must be able to absorb dynamic forces
- Push-back trolley can be retrofitted for existing racks
- GALLER OMEGA pallet racks are designed for push-back trolley systems
Furniture industry: Due to the flexibility of the system, special pallets can also be stored lengthwise or crosswise. Even stretch film under the skids presents no problem.
Food industry: Due to the horizontal storage, even less secured goods can be stored without a problem.
Beverage industry: Even unstable unit loads (in this case, stacked PET bottles) stand horizontally in the push-back trolley rack – no danger of tipping.
The rack structure is similar to a push-back rack: The basis is formed by OMEGA stand frames,which are connected with IPG beams or angular beams. Depending on the required load, the cross members can support one or several rail systems. Up to five pallets can be stored in depth per rail as standard.
The assembly of the rail system on angle brackets reduces the installation height of the entire system.
The push-back trolley system can also be used on IPG beams – this makes a retrofitting of existing OMEGA racks possible.
