Planter anchor screen wall created by DeepStream using the principles of Sustainable Design are movable and do not need to penetrate sidewalks or even roof decks. Use them to create upscale sidewalk restaurant patios and cafes that will extend your outdoor dining season an not run afoul of city regulations.

The large movable wood garden planters with a glass screen wall shown here do more than just create a physical space. The screen wall quiets noise, creating inviting spaces for customers to dine and linger over drinks. They also direct traffic controlling access points and hold strings of lights that draw attention to your establishment when your open day or night.

The quality of DeepStream’s planters with glass windbreak will also give your potential customers a positive feeling about the quality of the food and interior space. Modular construction sets up quickly, and the planters can be mounted on hidden casters for mobility. Caster options allow restaurants to reconfigure the space over time to meet changing needs or even be put away for the winter season snow removal.  

Don’t confuse DeepStreams commercial wood planters for carpenter built ones you see falling apart after 3-5 years. These planters are a engineered 3 part system consisting of structural legs and frame, inner waterproof liner, and outer box. Carpenter-built wood planters will fall apart in a few years, wasting valuable rainforest wood, time, and money. DeepStream’s structural interior frame also allows the use non-structural recycled plastic lumber for maintenance free planters that can last for 50 years or more with out significant fading.

DeepStream’s unique trademark marine-anodized aluminum legs and interior aircraft aluminum frame allow for a Lifetime Structural Warranty for your planters. The structural frame integrates the screen wall into the structure of the planter by engineered design, not as an afterthought. It’s the frame that provides the longevity to wood, allows the use of recycled plastic lumber, and provides structural mounting points for casters and slip in easy screen wall of glass, aluminum, laser cut patterns, wood, and more.

Waterproof plastic liners keep the soil from touching the wood which keeps roots cooler and increase the the longevity of the wood box from 3-5 years to decades while providing advanced drainage and growing conditions.

Reduce cost by specifying recycled plastic lumber (RPL) to replace wood. Using RPL reduces maintenance costs, as it does not require periodic refinishing like wood does, and has a a 50-year limited warranty. In addition, DeepStream’s marine-anodized legs mean that there is no paint or powder coating to fail, so planters with a screen wall may be pressure cleaned.

Replacing wood with recycled plastic lumber provides a commercial market for recycling plastics such as milk bottles. Using RPL saves critical tropical rainforest trees and habitat. Which ever material you specify, DeepStream plants 50 trees in our customers’ honor for every planter and 100 trees for every recycling or trash bin purchased through the non-profit Trees for the Future.

DeepStream handcrafts other weatherproof Custom Outdoor Fixtures for restaurants, including Modern Trash and Recycling Bins.

Sustainable Design: measure twice cut once

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. This feature has many benefits for seasonal installation of planters for a sidewalk café or a restaurant patio.

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 extrusions.

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.

Screen Wall and Enclosure System

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” dimensions 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.

Adaptive design allows modification of modular wood planters to adapt from  planned dimension to the actual as built measurements

While the new wood planks will take a week or so to fade to match the color of existing planks, the same adaptive design feature allows for replacement of parts or further adaptation for the life of the planter.
