What kind of space is the rack going into? Is it a
garage, an air conditioned room etc?
I've had multiple racks in a bedroom of a central a/c
house with an extra window a/c unit to keep the room
temperature cool enough. Usually took the back door
off of the rack for heat & cable management. Front
plexiglass door closed like you want. All racks had
top mounted fans at least.
On the hotter racks - I put a floor fan pointing
upwards on the back side of the rack to further
Maybe not technically correct - but the servers always
The racks were full of multiple sun boxes like you
describe, plus windows boxes, dec alpha 1200 servers,
disk shelves , blackbox kvm etc.
