I've only ever seen inverters mounted Vertically.

Good question, the documentation of All the inverters i have worked with, recommend installation in a Vertical position and I guess its based on the natural flow of hot air. Mounted Vertically you will still have natural air flow even if a fan fails, air flow you will not have if the inverter is flat on a table. Flat on the table you would have to rely on the fans to move the air. 

Then the voltronic manuals also say that you should not mount the unit on any flammable surface and i guess the wooden shelve or table top might be categorised as flammable.

Agreed but What if table top was granite/cement or steel with vents?

The reason for the question is that I have 42u with one MP II and want to add another but vertically a space coz of Pylontechs below. However I have a shelve that i can mount on that is horizontal, cabinet has fans as well, so circulation is not a problem

MP II

The manual that came with my MP II stated you can mound it horizontal or vertical, but that vertical is preferred. 

I also think that would be for better ventilation, so horizontally your fan will be working more. Mine is currently horizontally on the workbench (but going to be in a vertical position when the install is completed) and the fan is working much less that I expected.
