A key component of Sustainable Design embraced by Deepstream is adaptability. Adaptive design allows for the replacement, or reworking, of components to preserve the value and materials of an earlier design when a situation requires it.
Adaptive design may be required in advance as a design feature on projects where ongoing work will require an installation to move. As other features are added to a project DeepStream can work with your initial plans to reconfigure existing installations. There is never a design fee and reconfiguring may not even require new parts. If new parts are required it’s a simple job for Deepstream to add a few additional joining planks and extrusion.
The rooftop dog park, photo below, is an example where the building developer may move an entire complex structure. The aluminum frame of the Deepstream modular wood planters that hold the wood and glass screen wall and gates can easily be disassembled and reconfigured.
If, for any reason, fixtures ordered months earlier in a project don’t fit when finally installed the value of adaptive design is readily apparent. A miscalculation between initial measurements and “as-built” dimension can be corrected easily in a cost effective manner literally overnight.
The 3 photos below show an example where DeepStream’s modular planter, created with adaptive design, allowed us to accommodate an unrecorded change in dimensions. At very little cost in time, dollars, or materials we were able to supply new planks for the middle section of the multi-section planter.
Fiberglass, metal, or concrete planters would have not been able to accommodate this type of error common on large projects.
While the new wood planks will take a week or so to fade to the match color for existing planks the same adaptive design feature allows for replacement of parts or further adaptation for the life of the planter.
Custom fixtures, created using DeepStream Designs flexible design components, are durable and cost effective.
Weatherproof exterior and interior custom fixtures using 100% recycled and primary materials last for decades, are easy to maintain and ultimately to recycle. Backed by a Lifetime Structural Warranty they deliver the lowest cost of ownership over time reducing the impact on the Earth’s resources.
DeepStream’s handcrafts custom fixtures using its trademark marine anodized aluminum extrusions and 316 stainless steel. There is no paint or powder coating to fail. For every product purchased from DeepStream we plant between 50 and 100 trees in our customers name through Tree.org.
Custom Fixtures without custom prices. Deepsteam’s unique trademark marine anodized aluminum extrusion, with quick-change slide-in panel system. allow us to craft customized solution to meet our customers needs.
Accessories like swinging doors, tambour doors, shelves, and casters for mobility take advantage of the extrusion design to deliver cost effective solution to each customers individual needs without custom prices. There is never a design fee whether you order one custom fixture or 100.
Recycled Plastic Lumber (RPL) is a perfect weather and sun proof material to use with DeepStream’s marine anodized aluminum extrusion. Custom RPL fixtures may be pressure cleaned for sanitation and maintenance as there is no paint or powder coating to fail. The manufacturer of the recycled plastic lumber provides a 50 year warranty.
16-gauge 316 stainless steel tops and stainless fittings ensure that these custom fixtures will stand up to the elements. All fittings are attached using a proprietary dielectric paste on all the fasteners. This paste prevents the stainless fasteners from seizing in the aluminum so that if any part of a custom fixture is damaged it may be replaced.
Here are two very different valet stands that use the same materials and components: stainless steel, recycled plastic lumber, and marine anodized aluminum extrusions.
Components common to these custom fixtures include 316 stainless steel top and fittings, recycled plastic lumber, marine anodized aircraft aluminum, adjustable leveling feet or casters.
Available in many colors, dark gray weatherproof and maintenance free recycled plastic lumber is used in the large Valet Stand, in the photo above, while the smaller Key Locker, photo below, is crafted with tropical hardwood colored recycled plastic lumber.
The same components are used to create the Custom Locker Cabinet fixture in the photo below. This locker cabinet was sized to accept standard gym lockers to provide this customer with a custom fixture without a custom price.

The elegant tropical hardwood food service carts shown in photos below are just a few of weatherproof indoor/outdoor custom fixtures for restaurants and hotels. Stainless steel roller guides which fully support waterproof drawers made of food-safe HDPE. Handcrafted so that all parts are replaceable if damaged. Available with stainless steel casters, flat or leveling feet.
HDPE, high density polyethylene, think cutting board , like the polypropylene used in recycled plastic lumber is waterproof but not structural. DeepStream engineered special construction techniques to ensure these materials serve as expected over decades of institutional use.
Yacht building techniques and materials are used to ensure that custom fixtures engineered by Deepstream will last in extreme environmental saltwater marine condition found on cruise ships and ocean front properties.
