CO does not stratify

CO has approximately the same density as ambient air While smoke is normally a function of heat and therefore rises, CO can occur at any elevation in the room mixed in air. The CO detector is effective in providing an alarm for excessive CO concentrations long before they become hazardous. So yes, it can be mounted on the wall, or at outlet height (14") as long as there is good air mixing in the room.
