Rugged Articulated Levelers Add Functionality
DeepStream Designs stocks two types of levelers for the bottom of products made with Audubon legs, like the bin pictured here. 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, at left and below, fits completely under the leg, raising the bin by 5/8”, while the Articulated Leveler, at right, has a wider foot pad that sticks out just a bit and raises the bin by 1-1/8”. Both Levelers can be retrofitted in the field by affixing a nut inside the void designed into the bottom of the DeepStream Designs Trademark Audubon 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 bin 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.
