Accessories add Functionality

Accessory casters for mobility add functionality to heavy food service carts

Rugged stainless steel casters add functionality to custom fixtures.

While all of DeepSteams accessories add functionality to custom fixtures, Casters are the most often requested accessory by customers. Casters can be attached to a recessed frame to hide them, or they can be added directly to the corners of the trademark marine anodized aluminum legs.

There are rugged accessory casters for almost every product. Stainless steel casters for heavy wooden food service carts, garden planters, or a weatherproof point-of-sale terminal cabinet. Medium duty dual wheel accessory casters work extremely well indoors on both carpet and hard floors.

The second most requested accessory to add functionality is leveling feet.

DeepStream Designs stocks two types of levelers for the bottom of products made with  Audubon legs, like the bin pictured below.  Both levelers have a maximum adjustment range of approximately 1-3/4 inches and rugged 12mm (1/2″) thick stainless steel stems with non-marking plastic footpads.

rigid and articulated levelling feet are popular accessories to add functionality to custom fixtures

The pad of Rigid Leveler fits completely under a leg, raising the bin by 5/8” at a minimum. The Articulated Leveler, at right, has a wider foot pad that sticks out just a bit and raises the bin by 1-1/8” at its lowest setting.  Both Levelers can be retrofitted in the field by affixing a special nut inside the void designed into the bottom of the DeepStream Designs trademark marine anodized aircraft aluminum leg.

The Rigid Leveler, above, is a lighter weight leveler with a smaller ridged floor pad for situations where the floor is generally flat, but there may be different levels caused by bricks or tile that are not completely level.

The wider articulated leveler for slopes

The Articulated Leveler, above, has a thicker and wider articulated pad that will rotate off level for situations where the bin is placed on a slope and you need to level it up, not just stabilize the leg for a lower tile or brick.

Which one do you need? If you’re placing a trash or recycling receptacle in a situation like the one shown below built with 100% recycled plastic lumber, where the brick sidewalk slopes sharply away from the building, you need the articulated leveler as a shown retrofitted on the right.

Packaging: The final step in Sustainable Design and Manufacturing

Packaging:  The final step in Sustainable Design and Manufacturing for DeepStream Designs:

Sustainable Design, coupled with manufacturing products that stand the test of time in an environmentally responsible and sustainable fashion, allows DeepStream’s Customers to eliminate the “throw away” waste factor found in many of today’s products.

However, that is just the start of DeepStream’s Environmental Stewardship.

It is not enough that our products will last for generations and help slow the destruction of the rainforest.  Or that our products are 100% recyclable when their end of service finally comes. Or that we replant thousands of trees through “Trees for the Future” every year in our customers’ honor, a program which also offers locals alternative forestry jobs in tree nurseries and reforestation.

Even more potential rainforest destruction is diverted by offering planking for our recycling bins and garden planters made from recycled plastic.

DeepStream also ensures that it is meeting our environmental stewardship commitments with our packaging.

All of our cardboard used in shipping is 100% recycled content and purchased through Pratt Industries, www.prattindustries.com.   Similarly, we build our pallets in house to ensure that the 2x4s we use are harvested and certified through either the Sustainable Forestry Initiative, www.sfiprogram.org , or the Forest Stewardship Council, www.fsc.org, or both.   These standards provide third-party verification that the forest management and on-the-ground activities used by the lumber producers are environmentally responsible and sustainable.
