Due to space restrictions, could I mount something like this vertically? Drilling through the metal isn't a problem. Just wondering if it would cause any issues.

Don't see why not, the fans are on top to extract the heat... what are you planing to put in there?

One 19" switch, an edgerouter, an ONT and another small device. Will print 3d mounts for the small devices which will allow them to be mounted as well. Thanks for the reply. Will go ahead

not Mountain

:D

But on a serious note Yeah sure, just check the heat dissipation on each item afterwards as some items are designed in a way that their internal heatsinks dissipate heat in a horizontal positioning and not in a vertical positioning and vice versa. But it should all be good, otherwise install a fan or 2 to help
