Metal. There is a metal piece that get screwed to wall that holds up the bar and a stainless steel cap that covers the holding bracket. I used wall dog screws because did not have stud under the Sheetrock.
The outside measures 1”
I have two of these. The outer surface appears to be stainless steel - no rust or pitting after a few years of use. Of course, it is hard for the purchaser to be sure without performing metallurgical tests, but I would assume the manufacturer knows what it is made of.
Jacqueline, thank you for your question. The screw holes are approximately 3 inches apart. Best, Customer Care Team
ADA7, thank you for your question. The shower rod consists of a 1" OD., 19 gauge steel, the flange is made of stamping brass, and the wall plate consists of 14 gauge nickel plated steel. Mounting hardware includes (4) - #9 x 2" round headed zinc plated steel screws. Best, Customer Care Team
I cut mine with a disc grinder and you are right that the cut is covered. It is plated so might be too hard for a hacksaw, but I'm not sure of that.
It's a solid 60" - I cut mine with a pipe cutter.
This rod looks great in our bathroom. It is sturdy, nice looking and was easy to install.
Yes. However, it's very difficult since its made of stainless steel.
No, you slide them on before installing but beware as the flange means the rod has to be cut within 1/8" or so.
