Rust - want to back up Marie in her review. In a bathroom expect the end caps to rust. I specifically bought the galvanized version 30, & the correct end caps, and the end caps rusted in no time. I bought replacement end caps, asked for galvanized, and you'll notice the picture of the new replacement end cap (30 series) which isn't even fully painted.
I contacted Slant/Fin via email at the time, and the rep apologized that they didn't have a solution for me. Now they might. There's a new "Revital" line of aluminum covers that comes complete with sticker shock. There are also some plastic covers sold by HD. My solution was to use the plastic end caps HD sells, with the existing Slant 30 galvanized enclosure. It took some trimming of the plastic, but it works fine. If I were to do it over again from scratch, I'd choose the aluminum or plastic for a bathroom.

First I am sorry for your inconvenience and the bad information you received. Although Slant Fin and the other two manufacturers of baseboard now produce there product with galvanized steel, end caps are not. Due to the nature of how they are made they can not be made from galvanized steel. As a result they can rust in high humidity environments. I wish had a consistent solution for you or others even at risk of recommending a competitor. But I do not. I used the plastic ones you reference in your review that are made by Neat Heat.

I ordered two 8-footers online and picked them up at my local Home Depot three weeks ago. They were ready to go and the guy helped get them to my car. The baseboard enclosures were in perfect condition and just the right color. I used them to replace 30-year old semi-corroded ones that I had repainted too many times. The new baseboard enclosures slipped right into the space occupied by the old ones. I did take the opportunity to clean out/patch/sand/repaint the exposed bare wall before I installed the new ones - glad I did that. I also took the time to find studs to mount the new enclosures solidly. The design gave me the flexibility to adapt the mounting hardware and my screws to the location. The new enclosures are now shiny-new and a bigger improvement to my kitchen than I thought they would be. They are high-quality units, very cost-effective and I like that complete documentation is available on the manufacturer's site. I would made this choice all over again, and I will be upgrading the master bedroom with the same product.

The face part is so thin it bends/ dents to easily. This replaced an old one after a bathroom redo. We kept the face of the old one because it’s thicker just in case.

The product is great, but the lack of instructions led to me not buying the end caps at the same time. Its a 30 minute drive for me to the nearest HD so I have to plan these trips out. Not a huge deal, but it would be nice if the instructions were more than a couple of drawings on the outside of the box.
