Where can I Find 1/2 space blank panels ?

it seems like i remember someone mentioning something about 1/2 rack space blank (or vented would be even better) panels awhile back to put in between gear that runs hot (so as not to waste a whole rack space). does anyone know where i can find something like that? i would also need to find some rack rails that would allow 1/2 space increments as well. anyone know where one could find these items?
thanks in advance,
joshua

Do you mean 1/2 rack vertical?
Just remember that the spacing will change if you use something other than a 1 rack space panel(1.75") the screw hole spacing are not the same all the way down.

Can't tell you where to get them, but i'm sure have seen rail before that's evenly spaced strait down... never seen a half space panel though... do you have a 'toolslutz' friend who might be handy enough to split a 1 space down the middle? friend of mine has a plasma cutter...

I didn't know anyone made such a thing; here I was, preparing to use the nibbler tool to hack half of a vent panel off so I could fill in the 1/2 space above my nord rack 3... Thanks for the pointer to the perfect solution!
