Vented floor tiles cannot support as much weight as solid tiles. When moving cabinets in a computer room, replace vented floor tiles with solid floor tiles along the path where cabinets will be rolled. Failure to do so may cause damage or collapse of vented floor tiles, resulting in physical damage and/or bodily injury.

Following are the maximum weights for a cabinet containing factory-installed components. Field-installed components may be heavier.
