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.

BUCKHEAD, GA — Applications for the federal Paycheck Protection Program have closed after benefiting more than 11.8 million pandemic-stricken businesses, including many in Buckhead.
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 Buckhead businesses that benefited from the program according to the SBA. Check here for a full, searchable database.
NEIGHBORHOOD RESTAURANT PARTNERS FLORIDA LLC
ATLANTA RESTAURANT PARTNERS, LLC
CUMULUS BROADCASTING LLC
RUBICON GLOBAL, LLC
ALDRIDGE PITE, LLP
CMP SUSQUEHANNA LLC
ROBERT W. WOODRUFF ARTS CENTER INC.
HENNESSY CADILLAC INC
MORRIS, MANNING & MARTIN LLP
PEACHTREE ORTHOPAEDIC CLINIC PA
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 email@example.com.

ATLANTA, GA — Gratus Capital, the Atlanta-based wealth management firm, will move its corporate headquarters to Buckhead after signing a long-term lease to be housed inside the Piedmont Center, the company announced Thursday.
The move from its current office space on Riverwood Parkway will take place this fall when Gratus will take over the fifth floor of the Piedmont Center.

The company has 40 employees and plans to add to its workforce as it serves the Atlanta region, West Palm Beach and across the southeast.

The team at Gratus Capital has shown its resilience and increased service and support for both, and I'm ecstatic to be able to move forward with this new office in the heart of Buckhead to write the next chapter in our growth story," Gratus Capital founder and CEO Hank McLarty said in a news release. "We've made big strides since 2005 and this new space will better support our continued team expansion and firm initiatives designed to serve the long-term needs of our clients."
Renovations on the 20,000 square foot office space began in June. The office will have an open concept with 360-degree window views of Atlanta. The space will also include podcast and video recording studios as well as client-facing meeting space and an in-house café.
Gratus Capital is in its 16 year of operation and continues to advance among the nation's leading
independent wealth advisory firms, the release said. Last year, Forbes recognized the firm for the fifth consecutive year as one of its Top 250 Wealth Advisors and Best-In-State Wealth Advisors for the third consecutive year.
"I am incredibly proud of the growth and innovation of this firm," Gratus Capital President Neil Campbell said.

We're actively looking to attract other industry professionals who share our vision and want to grow with us here in Buckhead."
