  • Aluminum alloy: Aluminum alloy pulleys are lightweight, durable, but prone to rust if not properly maintained.
  • Ceramics: Ceramic pulleys are durable, not easy to rust, and resistant to high temperatures, but their prices are higher.
  • Rubber: Rubber pulleys have excellent anti-skid effects, but are susceptible to wear and have a short service life.
  • Nylon: Nylon pulley is light in weight, not easy to rust, and has good wear resistance, but it is easy to melt at high temperature and has a short service life.
    Generally speaking, stainless steel and aluminum alloy pulleys are more common, but the specific choice should be considered according to the size of the shower room, frequency of use, budget and other factors.
