Middle Atlantic has two styles of pull-out racks, the AX-S (which is the one I have), and the AX-SXR which pulls out and rotates.
Neither is cheap, but they are designed and built very well. You can look up the parts from various sellers. The cost is the same (there may be two 'tiers') for any rack U height. The killer is the service track and the service stand, both required components, which list for as much as the rack itself.http://www.middleatlantic.com/enclosure/roll/axsm.htm
With some good luck and careful shopping (and eBay scanning for bits and pieces), I spent ~$1500 on all the rack pieces you see in the picture(s). That includes the drawer, light bar/power strip, the shelves, custom faceplates, service track and stand, etc. "List price" on that stack is around $2500.
I'd suggest the 50" pull-out instead of the 25". Will make it much easier to work on if you have a lot of equipment in the rack. I don't mind it, and was concerned that I didn't have the depth to hold the longer cable tray and was afraid the 50" track would run into my bar table. It wouldn't have, but I couldn't walk in front of it, and have to go around the long way to get to the side of the rack when extended. Not what I would want to do...
The rotating version is something I would consider, too, if I was starting over.
