ANSI Door Lock Grades Explained

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) grading system was developed years ago to standardize a testing procedure to measure the durability and strength of a door lock. This grading system applies to both residential and commercial door locks. Composed of three different grades, the ANSI grading system gives homeowners and business owners a good idea of lock quality and reliability. ANSI examines six different qualities to determine a lock’s grade:

  • Strength Cycles – How many uses a lock can withstand before a replacement lock is needed)
  • Operational – This refers to a door’s ability to latch when it is closed
  • Security – The effectiveness of the lock’s security
  • Material – What kind of material is the lock made of?
  • Finish – Satin, nickel-plated, bronze, etc.

Grade 1 Locks

These locks offer the highest level of security and are most often used by institutions like hospitals, schools, and even museums. These locks also have the highest life expectancy, though they can be much more complex and require an expert residential or commercial locksmith in cityname to install. In today’s day and age, many more homeowners are opting for Grade 1 locks (like electronic locks) for the most peace of mind. This classification of lock must hold up against 800,000 cycles, six door strikes and a 360-pound weight test.

Grade 2 Locks

These locks are great for residential areas with more foot traffic, like a door that leads to an apartment complex or suite of rooms. These locks can also suffice for small businesses that need a higher level of security than Grade 3 locks. Use these locks when you want to secure access to areas with valuable equipment or sensitive documents. This classification of lock requires 400,000 cycles, four door strikes, and a 250-pound weight test.

Grade 3 Locks

This grade of lock is best suited for residential purposes and is considered standard door hardware. This kind of lock is the least expensive and should never be used in a high-traffic area like a lobby or storefront. However, these locks would be suitable for areas without much foot traffic like storage closets or areas without expensive merchandise. Because these locks are easiest to bypass, consider upgrading your Grade 3 locks with anti-bump and anti-pick technology. This classification of lock requires 200,000 lock cycles, two door strikes, and a 150-pound weight test.

INCREASE was a randomised, placebo-controlled, phase 3 trial that evaluated inhaled treprostinil in patients with interstitial lung disease (ILD) and associated pulmonary hypertension. Treprostinil improved exercise capacity from baseline to week 16, assessed with the use of a 6-min walk test, compared with placebo. Improvements in forced vital capacity (FVC) were also reported. The aim of this post-hoc analysis was to further characterise the effects of inhaled treprostinil on FVC in the overall study population and in various subgroups of interest.
In this post-hoc analysis, we evaluated FVC changes in the overall study population and in various subgroups defined by cause of disease or baseline clinical parameters. The study population included patients aged 18 years and older who had a diagnosis of ILD based on evidence of diffuse parenchymal lung disease on chest CT done within 6 months before random assignment (not centrally adjudicated). All analyses were done on the intention-to-treat population, defined as individuals who were randomly assigned and received at least one dose of study drug. The INCREASE study is registered with ClinicalTrials.gov, NCT02630316.
Between Feb 3, 2017, and Aug 30, 2019, 326 patients were enrolled in the INCREASE trial. Inhaled treprostinil was associated with a placebo-corrected least squares mean improvement in FVC of 28·5 mL (SE 30·1; 95% CI -30·8 to 87·7; p=0·35) at week 8 and 44·4 mL (35·4; -25·2 to 114·0; p=0·21) at week 16, with associated percentage of predicted FVC improvements of 1·8% (0·7; 0·4 to 3·2; p=0·014) and 1·8% (0·8; 0·2 to 3·4; p=0·028). Subgroup analysis of patients with idiopathic interstitial pneumonia showed FVC differences of 46·5 mL (SE 39·9; 95% CI -32·5 to 125·5; p=0·25) at week 8 and 108·2 mL (46·9; 15·3 to 201·1; p=0·023) at week 16. Analysis of patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis showed FVC differences of 84·5 mL (52·7; -20·4 to 189·5; p=0·11) at week 8 and 168·5 mL (64·5; 40·1 to 297·0; p=0·011) at week 16. The most frequent adverse events included cough, headache, dyspnoea, dizziness, nausea, fatigue, and diarrhoea.
In patients with ILD and associated pulmonary hypertension, inhaled treprostinil was associated with improvements in FVC versus placebo at 16 weeks. This difference was most evident in patients with idiopathic interstitial pneumonia, particularly idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. Inhaled treprostinil appears to be a promising therapy for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis that warrants further investigation in a prospective, randomised, placebo-controlled study.

Two brothers — one from Dallas, one from Powder Springs — planned to smuggle contraband into prison using a drone. What could go wrong?

GEORGIA — Two brothers are behind bars after their scheme to use a drone to smuggle tobacco and cell phones into a Georgia prison was scuttled by sheriff's deputies and the feds.

George Lo, 27, of Powder Springs and Nicholas Lo, 25, of Dallas, Georgia, were both sentenced to a year in federal prison after pleading guilty to charges related to illegally operating a drone, according to a statement Tuesday by the U.S. Department of Justice. U.S. District Court Judge Dudley H. Bowen Jr. also ordered each man to serve one year of supervised release after the completion of their prison terms.

In the process, the Lo brothers set precedents: Both are among the first to be sentenced under federal law regulating non-passenger aircraft, and Nicholas Lo is believed to be the first ever to be punished in the U.S. for illegally piloting a drone for pay.

According to court documents and testimony, George Lo was serving a sentence for armed robbery in Telfair State Prison when he started plotting with his brother Nicholas and others to fly a Storm Drone 4 without registration or licensing. The plan was to deliver contraband to the prison that George Lo could sell to fellow inmates.

In the wee hours of Aug. 26, 2019, Telfair County Sheriff's deputies caught Nicholas Lo and Cheikh Hassan Toure, 24, of Austell, in the woods near the prison with a duffel bag containing the drone and accessories. The two men were also carrying 14 cell phones, at least 74 grams of tobacco, a digital scale and earbuds. Both men were taken into custody. Toure has since pleaded guilty to drone-related charges but has not been sentenced.

"For as long as there have been prisons, inmates and their allies have attempted to circumvent security measures to introduce contraband inside the walls," said Acting U.S. Attorney David Estes. "In recent years, the increasing use of remotely operated aircraft has added complexity to this challenge, but in coordination with our law enforcement partners we will continue to work to maintain secure incarceration facilities."

Some business owners in Georgia say they are fed up with FedEx

AUSTELL, Ga. – Some FedEx Customers report they are fed up with the shipping delays from the carrier. An Atlanta-area business owner is upset over shipping delays using FedEx.

Business owner Robert Tuck is waiting on two packages to be delivered by FedEx.

Many of the issues stem from a major shipping facility located in Austell.

“They look in the system and they see the same information you have and maybe a little more then they are not helpful after that,” Tuck said.

According to tracking information, there seems to be a misleading trend.

“Time after time they say it’s on the truck for delivery but it never actually got on the truck for delivery,” Tuck said.

According to tracking information, one of Tuck’s items was shipped on June 21.

Two days later on June 28 the package was reported back at the facility and reloaded onto another truck for delivery.

It arrived at the Austell Facility early morning on June 25 and an hour later was reported to have been on a truck for delivery for the day.

It was the same story on July 2, 7, and 8 which was the last update Tuck has gotten for package one.

Tuck has a similar experience with his second package.

Tuck believes none of the packages ever made it onto a truck.

“They suggest going to the facility to pick up your stuff but if it’s lost then how is me going to the facility going to find it,” Tuck said.

Nearly 2,000 people have signed an online petition citing issues with the carrier and specifically that facility.

“I hope they understand FedEx at one point stood for one of the most reliable package services on the planet. It was the model for everyone to go to,” Tuck said.

Read the full statement below:

FedEx officials released a statement acknowledging issues at the facility and claim they are working to hire more staff and drivers.

SOUTH COBB, GA — Applications for the federal Paycheck Protection Program have closed after benefiting more than 11.8 million pandemic-stricken businesses, including many in South Cobb.

The Paycheck Protection Program started in April 2020 as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES), and was extended until May 31, 2021.

There were 416,058 PPP loans approved in Georgia in 2021 alone, according to the Small Business Administration. The total 2021 amount approved was $11,056,741,932.

Loan applications were processed through banks and other traditional lenders, with the SBA backing the resulting loans. Around $800 billion in loans were approved nationwide under the program.

The loans are forgivable if borrowers meet certain criteria, including spending at least 60 percent of the money on payroll costs and maintaining employee compensation levels.

Below are some South Cobb businesses that benefited from the program according to the SBA. Check here for a full, searchable database.

LONESTAR FORMING, INC

BROOKS BERRY HAYNIE & ASSOCIATES, INC

SUNBELT MARKETING INVESTMENT CORP

THE MILLER CLAPPERTON PARTNERSHIP INC.

STAFFORD TRANSPORT OF LOUISIANA INC

PRESBYTERIAN VILLAGE AUSTELL INC

WHITEFIELD ACADEMY

GIRL SCOUTS OF GREATER ATLANTA INC

GIRL SCOUTS OF GREATER ATLANTA INC

MARTIN'S RESTAURANT SYSTEMS, INC.

Nationally, the accommodation/food service industry received the largest share of loans in 2021, with 15 percent of the total.

Around 87 percent of the loans approved in 2021 were for $50,000 or less, and they accounted for a third of the total approved amount. The average loan size was $42,000.

The program wasn't without controversy. Banks tended to prioritize large, established businesses, according to a New York Times analysis. Congress raised fees for small loans in December to encourage lenders to make small business loans, and rules were changed in February to allow unprofitable solo businesses to qualify.

Several large companies drew public ire after it was revealed that they took PPP loans instead of relying on traditional capital-raising activities. The outcry prompted the SBA to review all loan applications over $2 million and issue guidance that the program was intended for businesses that lacked access to other cash-raising methods.

Editor's note: This list was automatically generated using data from the SBA for approved loans of $150,000 or more, although some loans ultimately were not made. Business owners can contact the SBA if information about a loan isn't correct. SBA data occasionally contains duplicate entries. Other feedback can be sent to content@patch.com.
