Class Code: 5102

Per NCCI's Scopes Code Description:

The classification includes the installation of all types of doors and windows, including non-overhead-type garage doors. The types of interior and exterior doors and windows assigned to Code 5102 include, but are not limited to, commercial and residential—aluminum, vinyl, composite, fiberglass, and steel. These operations generally involve placing the particular product and securing it to framing members. The doors may be trimmed for proper clearance, and latching mechanisms are installed. The replacement of existing doors may also require the replacement of damaged or deteriorated sashes. Metal doors are installed in a manner similar to that described above; however, it may also involve the installation of electric devices that will automatically close the door. The replacement of windows may involve setting the window in place manually and securing it to framing members.

Code 5102 is also assigned to the installation of storm shutters, such as panels, accordion, roll-down, fabric screens, and corrugated plastic and sheet metal.

Special Conditions:

The following material was developed by NCCI to be used as a guide by auditors and underwriters in the determination of premium for contracting (construction risks) with extra-territorial employments where no company guidelines have been established for this purpose. Construction classifications are indicated by the addition of a construction code symbol (  ) next to the classification code number.

1.    Payroll of employees of contractors who have their place of business in a given state and operate also in adjoining states and who are constantly crossing state lines, but usually return to their homes each night, must be assigned to their headquarters’ state. Example: Contractors such as electricians, plumbers, carpet layers, etc.
2.    The payroll for construction project managers, executives, or superintendents who may visit a job but who are not in direct charge of a job must be assigned to the state in which their headquarters are located.
3.    There are contractors who maintain a permanent staff of employees and superintendents. If any of these employees or superintendents are assigned to a job that is located in a state other than their headquarters’ state, either for the duration of the job or any portion thereof, their payroll must be assigned to the highest rated of either the state in which the job is located or the headquarters’ state.
4.    The payroll of employees who are hired for a specific job project must be assigned to the state in which the job is located.

When a portion of the operations of a risk is insured in a monopolistic state fund, consider the special rules and requirements that may exist in such cases.

Related Operations Not Classified to Code 5102:

Certain Code 5102 operations are designated as “not otherwise classified” (NOC). These NOC operations apply to an insured only when no other classification more specifically describes the insured’s operation(s). The following is a representative list of classifications somewhat related in nature to Code 5102 operations that are not assigned to Code 5102:

5020 Ceiling Installation—Suspended Acoustical Grid
9521 House Furnishing Installation (Draperies)

In addition to this representative list, one should review sources such as the alphabetical index in this manual to determine whether a classification other than Code 5102 or a classification other than one on the above list is applicable to the operations being reviewed for classification purposes.

Note:  Applies to operations away from the shop. Awnings included in Code 5102 are (a) canvas- or vinyl-covered or (b) metal-covered when installed by a contractor that also installs canvas- or vinyl-covered awnings. Metal-covered awnings installed by a contractor that does not also install canvas- or vinyl-covered awnings are assigned to Code 5535.


This code also applies to insureds that set up awnings, tents, or canvas goods and remove or repair these items away from the shop.

The manufacture or repair at a shop location of awnings, canvas goods products, and tents is separately classified from erection operations provided separate payroll records are accurately maintained, showing the amount of payroll expended for shop and erection work. In the event separate payroll records are not maintained, the entire payroll must be assigned to Code 5102.

The code further includes the setup, removal, and repair of metal awnings when performed by insureds that also setup canvas awnings.
