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.

Spring Jamboree brings news of the Georgia High School Football Hall of Fame

ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) - Georgia High School Football is returning to the spotlight this Thursday night with a star-powered, four-team spring jamboree at North Gwinnett High School and the televised broadcast, starting at 6 p.m. on Peachtree TV, will also be offering an exclusive look into the inaugural Georgia High School Football Hall of Fame—ahead of its Oct. 22 Induction Ceremony.Northside-Warner Robins and the host Bulldogs will scrimmage with their JV and reserves in the first of two sessions and the broadcast of the Georgia...

ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) - Georgia High School Football is returning to the spotlight this Thursday night with a star-powered, four-team spring jamboree at North Gwinnett High School and the televised broadcast, starting at 6 p.m. on Peachtree TV, will also be offering an exclusive look into the inaugural Georgia High School Football Hall of Fame—ahead of its Oct. 22 Induction Ceremony.

Northside-Warner Robins and the host Bulldogs will scrimmage with their JV and reserves in the first of two sessions and the broadcast of the Georgia High School Football Hall of Fame Spring Jamboree, presented by GeorgiaConstructionCareers.com, will go live at 6 p.m. for the second session that will feature the first-teamers. Immediately after Northside and North Gwinnett concludes, Class 7A powerhouses Marietta and Archer will scrimmage—opening with their first-teamers for the first session, before scrimmaging their junior varsity and reserves off camera after the broadcast concludes.

Outstanding partnerships, a top-tier digital team, on-air talent, experts and special guests all teamed up to capture the excitement of Georgia High School Football last season. Now, more games, premier events, support and features are setting the stage for an unforgettable 2022 lineup.

Thursday night’s broadcast will include Recruiting Expert Rusty Mansell of 247Sports calling parts of the game on the sidelines with the coaches and players and the head coaches will be wearing microphones as well as there being cameras in the huddle.

“From the time I agreed to be involved with Score Atlanta and CBS46, I made it clear it was important I thought we needed to make sure we were able to show tomorrow’s college football,’’ said Mansell. “I think the key to the early success we have had is being able to find those games with multiple high-level players. It was also important to me that we would be willing to go anywhere in the state of Georgia to showcase the deep talent of the state and what it is continuing to produce.”

Thursday’s jamboree will be the first-ever televised Georgia high school football spring scrimmage and moreover, it is also a fitting opportunity to celebrate everything to come this year with Score Atlanta and Peachtree TV’s unprecedented 35-game lineup including the two scrimmages, while highlighting all the excitement surrounding the Georgia High School Football Hall of Fame ahead of its October inaugural induction ceremony on Oct. 22 at the College Football Hall of Fame. In fact, viewers on Thursday will get the chance to see the first batch of names that will go on the inaugural 100-ballot. These name releases will take place throughout Thursday’s broadcast and four players will be announced from each of the last seven decades: 1950′s, 1960′s, 1970′s, 1980′s, 1990′s, 2000′s and the segregated Georgia Interscholastic Association (1948-69). The GIA was made up of all African-American schools.

“We are about celebrating high school football from the past up till now,’’ said Score Atlanta President I.J. Rosenberg. “The 2.5 hours of television on Peachtree TV will give everyone a good look into four very strong high school programs. But at the same time, we will begin unveiling our ballot for the inaugural class of the Georgia High School Football Hall of Fame. The full 100-player ballot, which will be announced in June, begins to tell you the story of high school football in Georgia. Our board has worked hard setting the standards a player has to reach to be inducted. There are hundreds of names, many you have heard of and some you haven’t, that will have a chance to receive this honor over the years. We also will have a big announcement Thursday night about what we are going to do with the nine Georgia high school players who have been inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame. I hope everyone tunes in because we are going to have a lot of fun up at North Gwinnett.’’

Georgia job growth strong as unemployment remains at record low

The stock market has plunged, interest rates have climbed, inflation may be biting, and talk of recession is in the air, but business has been pretty good at Filta Environmental Kitchen Solutions.

Like many Georgia employers, the Athens-based company has been less worried about finding customers and more worried about obtaining workers to get the job done, said Scott Clark, owner of the firm that filters and deep-cleans fryers in commercial kitchens.

He has two workers, each working from a $75,000 van outfitted with cleaning equipment. He is poised to hire a third employee, he said.

“He’s a really good guy, and I don’t want to let him slip away,” Clark said. “I don’t ever hire when I need someone, I hire when I find the right person.”

Since the start of the year, the Dow Jones Industrial Average has shed about 15% of its value, but the rebound of the Georgia economy has continued, according to a report Thursday from the state Department of Labor.

Georgia added 19,000 jobs last month, more than three times the pre-pandemic average for April growth. That kept the unemployment rate at its all-time low of 3.1%, unchanged from March and still lower than the national rate, said Mark Butler, the state’s labor commissioner.

That jobless rate held steady even though the labor force grew 16,337 during the month. The number of Georgians out of work and searching for a job is now at its lowest level since June 2001, a reflection of the pace of hiring.

The state’s job board has listings for more than 315,000 unfilled positions, Butler said.

But filling a position is not as easy as posting it, said Julie Anderson, vice president of the Marietta-based Wrench Group, which owns several area service companies, including Coolray Heating and Air and Mr. Plumber.

“We have hired 150 people this year in metro Atlanta,” she said. “But it is incredibly difficult to find these people because most of them are already working.”

The Georgia data contradicts the prevailing gloom on Wall Street, where stocks have sunk beneath a wave of fears about high gas prices, rising interest rates and inflation. Adding to that gloom was a report Thursday that jobless claims nationally climbed nearly 11%.

In contrast, Georgia’s initial claims last week fell to fewer than 4,000, which is below typical pre-pandemic levels.

Thursday’s report from the state DOL confirms what lenders are seeing, Katie Saez, regional president at Truist Bank, told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Companies might be coping with higher costs, but they see strong demand and they want to meet it.

“There still continues to be a lot of strategic investment to grow businesses, to venture into new territory,” she said. “What I am hearing about is the labor shortage, the high level of competition for talent.”

That competition is especially acute in home services, where the pandemic fueled a spike in demand, said Dave Rychley, president 360 Painting, a metro-wide service for homes and small businesses with 75 employees.

Much of his hiring is done by word of mouth, with offers of higher pay or more flexibility since he generally has to lure someone away from another job, he said.

“There just aren’t a lot of out-of-work painters, not good ones,” Rychley said.

Other in-person services that suffered during the pandemic are now scrambling for workers as consumers return.

“It was a pretty rough couple of years for the business,” said Duane LeVine, a principal in Level 5 Capital Partners, which invests in wellness and fitness ventures, and is the majority investor in Big Blue Swim School in Johns Creek.

The school has fewer than 20 employees, and if the right candidates appeared, LeVine said, he would hire up to seven more.

Big Blue has made many of the jobs part-time, aiming to give workers the flexibility they need to stay with the company longer, he said.

“When you are talking about swim lessons for your child, what you want is consistency,” he said. “It’s not a passive job, you have to be passionate. These are kids’ lives and it’s an essential skill that you are teaching.”

But pay is always central to hiring.

To attract and retain workers, wages in many fields last month were rising at an annual rate of 6%, according to the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta. And for workers switching jobs, the pay hike averaged 7.2%.

While those are historically large bumps for wage growth, inflation is also taking a bite, so growth in real terms isn’t quite as robust.

“The jobs that stay open are the typically the most unattractive or those that don’t pay as much,” said Jill Eubank, vice president of Randstad, a global staffing company.

A successful company has to adapt to the willingness of workers to switch jobs, she said.

“It used to be, we would ask employers, ‘What do you typically pay?’” she said. “But now they are constantly asking us, ‘What should I be paying to find the employees I’m looking for?’”

The strongest wage growth has been in transportation and warehousing, where many jobs pay 25% more than they did pre-pandemic, she said.

And that sector — which includes grocery, home improvement and retail stores, as well as warehousing and logistics — has made up much of the hiring during the economic rebound of the past two years, said state Labor Commissioner Butler.

That sector now accounts for more than 1 million jobs in Georgia, a sign that consumers who account for more than two-thirds of the economy are still in solid financial shape, he said.

Georgia unemployment rate:

Highest, pre-pandemic: 10.9% (Nov., 2009)

Lowest, pre-pandemic: 3.4% (Dec., 2000)

Highest, pandemic: 12.5% (April, 2020)

Current: 3.1% (April, 2022)

Georgia jobs, pre-pandemic:

Best April: +36,800 (2005)

Worst April: -24,900 (2001)

Average April: 5,200

This April: +19,000

Sectors with the most hiring in April:

Wholesale trade

Administrative and support services

Accommodation and food services

Transportation and warehousing

Retail trade

Industries with more than 10,000 jobs open now:

Manufacturing

Accommodation and food services

Retail Trade

Professional, scientific and technical services

Finance and insurance

Transportation and warehousing

Annualized pace of wage growth:

April, 2022: 6.0%

April, 2021: 3.2%

April, 2020: 3.3%

April, 2019: 3.6%

April, 2018: 3.3%
