Good morning,
I need to set up four tower servers on a pre-fab rack in some kind of enclosure where we can pipe in A/C and keep people out. (the servers are sitting on the floor at the moment) Can anyone recommend a pre-fabricated system specifically for tower cases? Thanks.

I think it might be cheaper for you to just get rack conversion kits for the servers (if possible).  They are much cheaper, and turn typical tower servers into 4 or 5U rackmount units..

Order a standard, enclosed, lockable rack with extra shelf units.  You can fit two per shelf.  You should be able to fit six tower servers, a KVM, a monitor, a keyboard and a mouse in a standard unit.  Don't forget to order the keyboard/mouse/monitor shelf.
