Nexus 21 Systems

We are proud to be now Partnered with Nexus 21 Concealment Systems. These guys have really raised the bar in motorized lift mechanisms. When we started in the business almost 20 years ago lift mechanisms were extremely expensive, very loud, custom built to order only and outright unreliable. Until recently not much has changed with the companies that produced these units. Our choice of lifts was limited to these companies who did little to nothing to advance their product lines. Nexus 21 has changed the game by providing lift mechanisms that are ultra reliable, super quiet, normally shipped in 3-4 days and best of all….affordable. This pricing broadens the scope of use from just tv displays to storage space to appliance access and more. Check out the video below for some great ideas in using Nexus 21 for much more than just hidden tvs!

DEG adds new Partners

Design Engineering Group is proud to announce the addition of several new Partners to our line up.


James Loudspeakers makes the most innovative architectural speaker designs we have ever seen. One design that we have already installed on a project mimics the the small 3 and 4 inch light fixtures found in many new homes. The woofer is enclosed in a custom aluminum enclosure mounted before ceiling drywall or other finishes and the mid-high driver installs and is serviceable from the speaker grill in the finished ceiling. Check back for installation photos we will post soon.

Screen Innovations is the Austin, Texas based company we have chosen to use for all of our new projects when it comes to projection screen systems. They constantly push the envelope of screen design to move their product far above others in the industry. The Black Diamond material combined with a Zero Edge frame design gives the image the look of a large flat screen combined with image brightness and contrast only found in pitch dark rooms in the past.
