Rated 4 out of 5Â by Vwhappy check for damage
Good quality but check for damage at the shop. Luckily the damage to the pole was at the end I cut off. It had 3 big dents and the tube was bent but I was able to straighten it.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by CCSHandyman Shame about the packaging
Needed a rail in a hurry. After reading some of the reviews of cheaper ones I decided to spend the extra on this as it should not rust. Rail was well made and strong when fitted. However the packaging which consists of a plastic bag is a joke. The rail had a couple of dents, one rather large but that was able to be cut off when cut to length. The other was small so I was able to fit so did not show.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by MyOldNameGotRejected Sturdy shower rail
It's a 2m one piece rail, no joins, so I recommend store collection rather than trusting it to delivery.
The end fittings take two fairly slim screws each end, stainless would be best, the covers slide over and hide the wall fixings and are fixed in place with a grub screw. The rail was a little loose in the fittings so a wrap of electrical tape fixed that.
The rail is strong enough for purpose but you won't be able to do chin-ups on it.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Clivington Dented
I had this delivered for collection from my local Screwfix. When I got it home I found that the tube had several small dents. Luckily these were near the ends and, since I needed only 170cm, I was able to cut the ends off. This left only one or two small dents which I could place uppermost, out of sight. I tested the offcuts: it takes quite a force to dent this tubing so it's difficult to see how this happened. I'd recommend checking in store.
The quality is reasonable for the price. The fittings are metal which is reassuring.
The fixing screws are a little longer than the plugs. I'd say they were unnecessarily long for the job and I actually replaced them. I also cut the plug flanges off to allow the fixing to be flush with the wall, but perhaps that's over-fussy.
