Choose the Best Setting

These cabinets can be stacked vertically, ganged in a row, mounted on compact high-density systems, mounted on casters, or simply set on the floor on their integrated bases. Best of all, you’re not locked into a particular setting because stationary cabinets can be mounted on mobile systems at a later date, and vice versa.
