Are the mounting brackets that are screwed to the wall plastic or metal? I ask this question because Moen has stated using plastic mounting brackets that break quiet easily.
A. The Moen YB5494 is made out of Glass/Zinc materials, plastic is not mentioned.
can this be used in a shower?
A. The Moen YB5494 is not recommended for use in a shower.
Could you let us know what the depth of the towel rack is?
A. The Moen YB5494 extends 10.041" from the wall.
Is this a shelf, or a shelf and towel bar? If only a shelf, could I put a towel bar underneath it? Would that look funny?
A. The Moen YB5494 is a towel rack and a towel bar. I think another towel bar under it would look fine. You could also put some hooks or rings if you wanted to change it up.
there's a question/answer shown about not recommending that the hotel rack be used in a shower. Can you elaborate? I have bought one to install, and plan to hang on the back of my 40" shower stall.
A. The Moen YB5494 is not recommended for use in a shower because it does not have any special protection to avoid rusting when coming into direct contact with water.
Can the whole rack be extended by replacing the perpendicular bars with the 30" extensions that are avaiable for purchase separately?
A. The Moen YB5494 is designed for use as a 26.195" length towel rack only. It is not intended to be lengthened or extended.
