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.
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 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.
Optional Smokers Outpost can be factory installed or retrofitted.
Another popular accessory that adds functionality is the Smokers Outpost, available in Stainless Steel, silver grey and black .
