Class code 5535 is used for employees that perform erection, installation, or repair services related to sheet metal work and products. Job requirements may range from simple bolting of goods in place to complex operations that are construction-like in nature. Commonly installed products include skylights, metal furnaces, spouting, flashing, sheet metal siding (installed on exterior steel frame structures), sheet metal Quonset-type structures, some metal storage facilities, metal ceiling or wall coverings, and sheet metal decking. In addition, the erection of telephone booths, metal awnings, metal or glass fused to steel silos, and sheet metal dustless clean air rooms are also included within this classification.

Some areas that are similar to those operations found in class code 5535 but that are classified separately include the installation of sheet metal roofing, the installation, service, or repair of heating, air-conditioning, ventilation, and refrigeration systems, aluminum or vinyl siding installation, and sheet metal fabrication shops.
