Issue:
I do not want to mount Symmetra RM in a rack; I want to put it on the floor.  What are my options?

Cause / Overview:
Some applications require that a Symmetra RM UPS not be mounted in a rack.  This article details the options that are currently available to the customer.

There is an optional floor mount kit available for the Symmetra RM UPS, SYOPT1.  This can be used to install the UPS chassis in a tower configuration and is the only approved method to do so.  More information can be found at the following links:
