Thank you for your question, Sandra! Our shower heads and hand showers are composed of a proprietary mixture of both metallic and non-metallic components to ensure a long lasting, high quality product, while maintaining safety control for the various temperatures of water that go through the product. With any shower head or hand shower, made by us or another company, the part of the faucet that you would grab onto is typically made of a plastic or a plastic-mixture, as metal is heavier, susceptible to corrosion and retains heat.
Best regards, Edward
