Classification 3509.

3509-01 Statuary and ornament: Manufacturing
Applies to establishments engaged in the manufacture of decorative statuary, and other ornamental items including, but not limited to:
• Cornices;
• Countertops;
• Grills;
• Lawn and garden furniture;
• Patio and blocks and stepping stones;
• Planters and fountains.
Materials used to make the items may include:
• Aggregate;
• Cinders;
• Concrete;
• Gravel;
• Hair;
• Mesh wire and reinforcing rods;
• Plaster;
• Powdered lime;
• Sand;
• Wood fiber.
Depending on the item being made, various ingredients are mixed together and cast in metal or rubber molds or in forming machines. After being removed from the molds or forms, they are dried and stored until cured. After curing, items may be sanded and smoothed with grinders, carved by hand; some may be painted with designs or coated with a clear finish. Such finishing work is included within the scope of the classification when performed by employees of employers subject to this classification.
This classification excludes:
• The mining, digging, quarrying, or manufacturing of raw materials which are to be reported separately in the applicable classification;
• The manufacture of decorative tile which is to be reported separately in classification 3503;
• The manufacture of concrete blocks, bricks, poles, piles, tile, beams, sewer and irrigation pipe, and septic tanks which is to be reported separately in classification 3105; and
• The pouring and finishing of concrete countertops on a construction site which is to be reported in classification 0217.
Special note: This classification differs from classification 3105 "concrete blocks, sewer pipes" in that products manufactured in classification 3509 are for decorative purposes, are usually lighter weight, and have smoother or more perfect finishes than the concrete products manufactured in classification 3105 which are rough, do not require perfect finishes, and are generally for construction use.
