Hello Ted 35,
Thank you for your question regarding the Delta Premium 5-Setting Shower Mount Hand Shower and I am happy to help you today.
The body of this hand shower is composed of mostly plastic components.
We primarily manufacture our products with a mixture of metallic and non-metallic materials for the user's safety and for the longevity of the model.
Fully metallic products tend to rust overtime and often hold heat which causes burns easily.
Also, non-metallic shower heads and hand held wands will hurt a lot less if dropped on your body while showering and will be a lot more light weight when holding the wand for an extended period of time.
I hope this information is helpful and please do not hesitate to give us a call at 800-345-3358 if we can assist you with anything further.
