Is the showered metal or plastic?
Hello deb c,
Thank you for your question regarding the Delta Dryden™ Premium Single-Setting Slide Bar Hand Shower and I am happy to assist you today.
This hand shower is composed of a mixture of metallic and non-metallic materials.
We primarily manufacture our products with a mixture of metallic and non-metallic materials for safety and 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.
Please feel free to give us a call if we can assist you with anything else going forward at 800-345-3358.

Is the typical wall feed height for this lower than for a standard showerhead?
If I get this it will be so that we can do both standing and seated showers. From the photos it looks like the wall feed for this unit would be mounted quite a bit lower than the piping for a regular showerhead. Am I understanding this correctly? I want a seated person to be able to shower comfortably with the handheld unit but I'm not sure I want to be permanently committed to an abnormally low water connection through the shower wall. Obviously each installation is unique, but what would be a typical mounting height for the wall feed (water piping) for this unit?
Thank you for your question! The supply elbow can be installed anywhere on the wall that will allow the hose to hang freely and provide enough reach.

does the dryden hand shower wall bar also serve as a grab bar?
Thank you for your question. This bar is not designed to be used as a grab bar. To browse our selection of grab bar hand shower mounts, please click the link below and select "ADA Compliant" under Features.

Can you direct me to a photo of this handshower with the water spraying out of it?
I would like to see the angle of the spray. Thanks!
Thank you for your question! Unfortunately, we do not have a photo showing the water coming out. However, the mount on the slide bar can be adjusted to change the angle of the hand shower.

Can I use a different shower head on the Dryden handheld?
I don't like the Dryden shower head on the handheld. Can I just replace the shower head with a different one in the same finish?
Thank you for your question! Any of our hand showers will work with the hose and wall bar for this unit.

is there suggested install height for the slide bar ?
Hi Annie, Thank you for your question. We do not recommend a specific height for the slide bar hand shower to be mounted. There are variables as to whether the person using the handheld shower will be seated or not, or the height of the user. The height is based on the users preference.

How does the diverter work
If you install the handheld next to a regular showerhead do you have the option of using both at the same time and each one separately?
Hi Homeowner, Thank you for your question. We offer diverters that you plumb in the wall or mount to your shower arm. In both cases the diverter will allow you to use the showerheads individually or both at the same time.

Can you provide cut sheets of this product?
I am looking for dimensions of the bar (its length and total depth from the wall) and also the profile of the Handshower itself to see how its measurements (height and length from the 1/2" NPT connection, assuming the 1/2" connection is perfectly vertical, as shown in the picture). Thank you.
Hi Jason, Thank you for your question. I have attached a link to the spec sheet for the model 57051 hand shower.
