Class code 5102 is used for employees that perform interior and exterior door and window installation of all types, including residential and commercial. Products installed within the scope of this classification may be made of materials like aluminum, vinyl, wood, composite, steel, or fiberglass, received from others. Job duties that are generally performed by those under this class code include measuring and placing of the product to fit the appropriate location, securing the product to framing, trimming excess to ensure proper fit and clearance, installing matching mechanisms, replacing damaged or deteriorated sashes, and the installation of electric devices to automatically close metal doors. Additionally, the installation of storm shutters, decorative or artistic erections, elevator buck doors, fire doors, shower enclosures (not made of glass), and screen enclosures and the erection of steel prison cells, the setup of portable wood grandstands and bleachers, and the setup of playground equipment is also included within this class code.

Class code 5102 also will be used for employees that setup, repair, or remove awnings, tents, and canvas goods away from their shop. This would also include individuals who decorate an interior or exterior space with things such as flags, buntings, canvas sidewalls, or draperies and curtains in public buildings (which cannot be placed from the floor using a stepladder). This type of work is generally done in preparation for celebrations, political campaigns, or other related public events.

Exclusions to this class code that are similar in nature but that should be otherwise classified include the installation of overhead doors, glass shower doors or enclosures, suspended acoustical grid ceilings, metal covered awnings, and home furnishings. When classifying workers to this class code, it is also important to follow the extra-territorial classification guidelines for each worker to ensure that they are properly classified.
