Any UPS model that is advertised as being "rack/tower convertible" can be laid on its side. However, once or twice I've been forced to patch some tower feet onto a "rack-mount-only" UPS and put it vertically but I always make sure to orient the UPS so the batteries are sitting at the bottom so heat from the inverters/transformers etc doesn't impact them.
