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.

UPDATE January 14 --

WEATHER SERVICE: Tornado hit Austell area

A National Weather Service team toured the damage in the Ivy Log area of Austell following Thursday's storm. They determined an EF1 tornado with 110 mph winds hit the area. The mile-and-a-half-long path started in Douglas County near the damaged warehouse in Lithia Springs and moved eastward into Cobb.

Fifty homes were damaged in the area, with 16 destroyed or significantly damaged. All the homeowners had insurance, and the Red Cross was working with other families on any immediate needs.

There was damage across the county from the storm. Those who did not call 911 and have not been visited by damage teams should report their circumstances in our portal at https://arcg.is/nL448 ----- UPDATE January 13 --

We are fortunate that none of our Cobb residents were seriously injured during the storms that caused so much devastation across the state this week. Cobb Emergency Management and GEMA officials formed a damage assessment team that surveyed the hard-hit Austell neighborhoods earlier today.

Watch the video for details of that assessment and to view images of some of the storm’s destruction.

For those in Cobb who suffered damage to their homes or property and did not call 911 or meet with the assessment team, please report your details to us at https://arcg.is/nL448.

Some details:

* The team found 50 homes damaged in the Ivy Log neighborhoods alone. Of those, 16 are considered destroyed or damaged enough to be uninhabitable.

* No serious injuries were reported. One person was hit by debris and checked out at a hospital. A second person suffered a cardiac event and was also treated at a hospital.

* A National Weather Service team will likely decide next week if the damage in Austell was from straight-line winds or a small tornado. There was no active Tornado Warning in the area at the time.

* Cobb DOT crews worked much of the day across the county to clear debris. They opened 25 roads the night of the storm and handled another 26 calls today.

* Damage was reported in all corners of the county. Please use the reporting tool listed above to ensure we have a complete view of the storm’s impact. ----- January 12 --

A fast-moving storm rolled through Cobb County on January 12, damaging dozens of homes and businesses, and closing multiple roadways. The most significant reports came from the Austell area, where damage reports were concentrated around the Oak Ridge Parkway / Blairs Bridge Road area. Damage assessment in that area will continue into the night. No significant injuries have been reported.

No Tornado Warning was posted for the area at the time, so the county's outdoor warning sirens, activated by computer, did not go off.

Residents are asked to report damage to our online reporting portal at https://arcg.is/nL448. This can be accessed by phone or computer and will allow those who have not called 911 or aren’t sure if their damage has been recorded to report it to us. A damage assessment team will then follow up with them.

A summary as of 6:30 pm:

What to do before and after filing an insurance claim following storm damage

Austell, Ga. (Atlanta News First) - Many homeowners such as Carol May who sustained storm damage on Thursday are now waiting for insurance companies to get them back on their feet. The Georgia Office of Insurance and Fire Safety Commissioner said there are some things you need to know before and after filing a claim.Wrapped with multiple layers of clothes to stay warm, May pointed to ...

Austell, Ga. (Atlanta News First) - Many homeowners such as Carol May who sustained storm damage on Thursday are now waiting for insurance companies to get them back on their feet. The Georgia Office of Insurance and Fire Safety Commissioner said there are some things you need to know before and after filing a claim.

Wrapped with multiple layers of clothes to stay warm, May pointed to nearly a half dozen trees scattered across her yard Friday morning, pushed down by powerful winds. “I just heard real strong winds like I never heard before,” said May, who has lived in her Austell home for more than four decades on Poplar Log Place in Cobb County.

One of the trees fell on her shed. May filed a claim with her insurance first thing Friday morning.

That was a smart move, according Jo Anne Oni, the director of consumer services with the Georgia Office of Insurance and Fire Safety Commissioner, “because you want to get that filed as soon as possible because everyone is filing claims. You want to make sure you’re at the top of the list in getting some assistance.”

The agency suggests the public follow these four steps after storm damage:

“It only takes hours or days for mold to start forming, and you want to make sure that doesn’t happen,” said Oni.

Insurance companies are required by law to respond in a timely manner. If companies don’t, there is a process that can help compel them to move.

The agency has set up a special phone number for the public to use if they believe their insurance company is responding appropriately. That phone number is: 1-800-656-2298.

Oni said agency staff will make a courtesy call to the insurance company on your behalf to get to the bottom of the delays. If that doesn’t work, homeowners can file a formal complaint with the agency.

May’s shed is covered by insurance, but the cost to remove the fallen trees spread across her home may not be. In most cases, homeowner insurance only covers covered structures, like a home.

According to the Insurance Information Institute, in the United States between 1997 to 2016, events involving tornadoes, including other wind, hail and flood losses associated with tornadoes made up 39.9% of total catastrophe insured losses, adjusted for inflation.

SOURCE/DATA FOR THIS Came from the National Center for Environmental Information

On March 25-26, 2021, an EF-4 tornado struck Newnan, resulting in $20 million in property damage, according to the National Center for Environmental Information.

Four other tornados struck other areas during this timeframe, upping the property damage to more than $21 million.

On March 14, 2008, the tornado that hit downtown Atlanta, killing one and injuring 30 others, caused $25 million in property damage.

Over the last 20 years, Georgia has had four EF4 tornadoes that, in total, killed nine, injured 51 and caused $57.5 million in property damage.

Insurance companies are typically required to pay for damage caused by a tree that fell from a neighbor’s yard, but only if the homeowner has put their neighbor on noticed that they believe the tree was previously damaged or diseased.

Oni suggests documenting that notice by email or letter. “Just having a verbal conversation is not enough because of course the neighbor could deny it,” said Oni.

May won’t know what’s covered at her home until an insurance adjuster arrives. “I doubt anytime soon because so many other people have called, especially that have damages to their home,” she said.

What was the climate like in the latest reporting period?

The NWS climate summary for metro Atlanta has now been updated with November figures.

In an article entitled What is the Difference between Climate and Weather?, the National Ocean Service describes the difference as follows:

“Weather is what you see outside on any particular day. So, for example, it may be 75° degrees and sunny or it could be 20° degrees with heavy snow. That’s the weather.

“Climate is the average of that weather. For example, you can expect snow in the Northeast in January or for it to be hot and humid in the Southeast in July. This is climate. The climate record also includes extreme values such as record high temperatures or record amounts of rainfall. If you’ve ever heard your local weather person say “today we hit a record high for this day,” she is talking about climate records.

“So when we are talking about climate change, we are talking about changes in long-term averages of daily weather. In most places, weather can change from minute-to-minute, hour-to-hour, day-to-day, and season-to-season. Climate, however, is the average of weather over time and space.”

What does the National Weather Service do?

The National Weather Service (NWS) is a part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

The NWS describes its role as follows:

“The National Weather Service (NWS) provides weather, water, and climate forecasts and warnings for the United States, its territories, adjacent waters and ocean areas, for the protection of life and property and the enhancement of the national economy.

“These services include Forecasts and Observations, Warnings, Impact-based Decision Support Services, and Education in an effort to build a Weather-Ready Nation. The ultimate goal is to have a society that is prepared for and responds to weather, water and climate events.”
