Are there any potential problems to laying a tower UPS flat on its side?

The UPS in question is a Cyber Power CP1500AVRLCD.  Just wondering if anything catastrophic can happen as a result of laying the UPS flat?  Is there any reason why the UPS shouldn't be on its side?

As long as it isn't using a 'water' filled battery, it should be OK. I would make some kind of 'standoffs' for it, so air can still get around it.

you should not block any venting holes, or fans; but for the rest it is ok to do so
you can also check on the manuf' s site if they list any problems for the mounting..

Another concern is the battery mounting.
If they are loose in 'a chamber' they may 'fall' against metal and ground out the terminals.
