Does anyone know of a 36u/42u rack that can have a ** rear ** extraction kit fitted to allow hot exhaust air from the rack to be dumped to the outside of the server room ?

Have always just made them and found most all racks with enclosed sides to work well. Haven't ever seen a product specifically 'made' for this. I suppose if it wasn't so easy to do it myself I may have looked. Would be interesting to see if someone has one.

Pans, fans, and flex duct ;-)

Depends on the rack manufacturer, IBM have a rear heat exchanger - http://public.dhe.ibm.com/common/ssi/ecm/en/xsd03029usen/XSD03029USEN.PDF

It's only half the cooling system though, you have to supply it with cold water and take away the hot.

APC do a kit for their racks which replaces the rear door so it vents upwards, they also do side rack chillers which may be an option

This is probably exactly what you're looking for: http://www.apc.com/products/resource/include/techspec_index.cfm?base_sku=ACF400 and http://www.apc.com/products/resource/include/techspec_index.cfm?base_sku=ACF402. More stuff here: http://www.apc.com/products/family/index.cfm?id=107

I've used the APC air extraction doors in dense racks and they work extremely well.
