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.

Schwaig, who came from humble beginnings, said that her father had dreamed of going to college despite his parents' wanting him to become a truck driver. Ed Stewart achieved his goal. He graduated with a bachelor’s degree and became a minister. Schwaig’s mom, Nola, taught Sunday school and shared her husband’s passion for academics.

At every opportunity, the Stewarts reinforced with their own children the notion that college was the gateway to a bright future, Schwaig said. Beyond their positive reinforcements, they budgeted vigorously to pay all undergraduate expenses for their four children so they could focus primarily on academics. Their efforts paid off as each earned, at least, a master’s degree.

Now, Schwaig is paying tribute to her parents through the newly established Ed and Nola Stewart Endowed Scholarship. The $100,000 gift will create a scholarship to help reduce the financial burden for students at Kennesaw State.

“My siblings and I had summer jobs, but my parents paid all of our undergraduate expenses,” she said. “Having benefited from their sacrifices, I know firsthand just how valuable it is to receive unwavering support. I hope that recipients of this scholarship share my experience as they pursue their passions at KSU, and that others who share my parents’ passion for higher education find ways to give back.”

Schwaig, who became Kennesaw State’s sixth president in March 2022, earned a Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting and an MBA in Information Systems from Baylor University, a Master of Liberal Arts from Johns Hopkins University, and a Ph.D. in Management Information Systems from the University of South Carolina.

She said that she still doesn’t know how her parents managed to help four children graduate from college debt-free, but she knows that this scholarship would have meant something special to them.

“They would be thrilled to know that a scholarship in their name will help someone in the short run so that their life can be better in the long run,” said Schwaig. “I can’t think of a better way to honor them.”

A leader in innovative teaching and learning, Kennesaw State University offers undergraduate, graduate and doctoral degrees to its nearly 43,000 students. With 11 colleges on two metro Atlanta campuses, Kennesaw State is a member of the University System of Georgia. The university’s vibrant campus culture, diverse population, strong global ties and entrepreneurial spirit draw students from throughout the country and the world. Kennesaw State is a Carnegie-designated doctoral research institution (R2), placing it among an elite group of only 6 percent of U.S. colleges and universities with an R1 or R2 status.

IT'S MONEY TIME Donovan Cash has exploded onto the scene in his first year as a starter. The first baseman is first on KSU in multi-hit performances (26) and ranks second in batting average (.374). He was rewarded ASUN Player of the Week on May 16 after batting .600 with four home runs, five doubles and 11 RBI in a four-game stretch.

CYCLING INTO THE RECORD BOOKS ... TWICE Against No. 12 Georgia Tech on Mar. 23, Josh Hatcher became the first Owl in the program's Division I history to hit for the cycle. Hatcher finished the game 4-for-6 with two RBI. Two games later, Hatcher hit for the cycle again in a 4-for-6 performance versus UNF.

THE QUADRUPLE DOUBLE On Mar. 18 versus Jacksonville, KSU center fielder Josh Hatcher became the first player in Owl history to record four doubles in one game. The leadoff hitter finished the game 5-for-5 and compiled eight hits on the series.

2 GETS #200 In a 4-for-6 performance against No. 12 Georgia Tech, senior Tyler Simon became the 10th player in KSU history to reach the 200-hit milestone. The shortstop achieved the feat in his 191st game wearing the Black and Gold.

POWER SURGE On Friday night against Jacksonville (Apr. 22), Cash Young became the second player in KSU history to hit three home runs in a single game. The third baseman posted a streak of 10 home runs in a 13-game stretch. Young leads the team with 15 total and is currently tied for the Kennesaw State single-season home run record.

HATCHER HITS 200 Against No. 16 UGA (May 3), Josh Hatcher lined a single to right field in his third at-bat to record his 200th career hit. The Mississippi State transfer has tallied a team-high 88 hits this year and compiled 126 during his first four years in the SEC.

DIAMOND DEBUTS The Ryan Coe era begins with many new faces on the diamond in 2022. KSU has 23 players that are in their first year with the baseball program. This accounts for 58% of the team's roster.

ON DECK KSU travels to Fort Myers, Fla. for the 2022 ASUN Baseball Championship set to begin on Tuesday, May 24. Opponent information and game times will be released following the conclusion of the regular season.

KENNESAW, Ga. – Kennesaw State senior attacker Siena Gore has set yet another program milestone as she became the first KSU women's lacrosse player to earn CoSIDA Academic All-District IV Women's At-Large Team honors, the organization of sports information directors (CoSIDA) announced on Thursday. Thanks to her selection, she is now placed on the ballot for Academic All-American consideration.

Student-athletes must be in at least their second season, hold a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.30 and be a starter or important reserve to be eligible for the CoSIDA Academic All-District teams. District IV is made up of schools in Alabama, Florida, Georgia and South Carolina.

Gore wrapped up her outstanding season and five-year career at Kennesaw State in earlier this month when she became the first player in ASUN Conference history to reach 100 points in a season. That came just one day after she became the first two-time ASUN Player of the Year, while also picking up ASUN Scholar-Athlete of the Year recognition for a clean sweep of the league individual awards. That was followed a week later by yet another first by a KSU Owl, when Gore was selected to the IWLCA (Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association) All-South Region Second Team, which has placed her on the ballot for IWLCA All-American honors as well.

The first-ever player to be named All-ASUN First Team four times, the Alpharetta native led the nation in scoring for the majority of the season, and is currently third in the NCAA with a new career, KSU and ASUN record-setting 80 goals, while all-time she is the fourth-leading scorer in NCAA history with 313 goals. She was the key factor for an Owl team that claimed the first winning season in school history, breaking the record for most wins in a season by three games with an 11-7 mark. Gore ranks in the top 10 in the nation in seven categories, including fifth in total points, and she also ranks fifth in draw controls per game at 8.61, while her 155 for the year shattered her previous career record. Gore led the ASUN in goals, points, free position goals and draw controls, and earned a league-high four Player of the Week honors.

She graduated this month from KSU with her master's degree in Systems Engineering, after receiving her bachelor's degree in Industrial Engineering Technology in just three years. She held a perfect 4.0 GPA all three years of her undergraduate career as well both years in graduate school. She also claimed Academic All-ASUN honors for the third time in her career.

KENNESAW, Ga. – Drew Landers has joined the Kennesaw State women's basketball coaching staff as an assistant coach, while Dominique St. Louis will be the team's new Director of Basketball Operations, KSU head coach Octavia Blue announced on Wednesday.

Landers brings seven years of experience at the Division I level to the Owls, including the past two seasons as an assistant coach at USC Upstate, and helped the Spartans post a 14-game win improvement this past season (22-8) over the 2020-21 campaign. As assistant coach for Upstate, he handled recruiting on the national level as well as scouting, player development, and assisting with travel.

"I am so happy and excited that Drew is joining our staff," said Blue. "He has been around women's basketball all of his life and has seen it played at an elite level. Drew's work ethic, passion for the job and ability to build relationships will be essential to helping us continue to build a championship culture here at KSU!"

Previous to his time in Spartanburg, Landers spent two years as the director of player personnel at Mercer, one year at Ole Miss as the director of operations, and one season as the video coordinator for Virginia. He started his career in collegiate basketball by serving a one-year internship with the men's and women's basketball programs at Georgia. Landers attended Ole Miss, and received his bachelor's degree in business administration in December of 2013.

St. Louis was the Director of Operations for at Tusculum University, where she handled and assisted in numerous areas, including helping to organizing recruiting efforts, coordinating travel, overseeing the budget, managing marketing efforts and was the liaison with the team and the rest of the athletic department personnel.

"I am so excited for Dominique to join our KSU family," said Blue. "Dominique does tremendous work, is detail-oriented and is an excellent communicator. She has the hunger and passion for what she does. There's no doubt she'll impact this program in a special way."

Prior to Tusculum, she was the head JV coach and varsity assistant coach for the 2019-20 season for Independence High School (Thompson Station, Tenn.), and helped them to the first winning record since 2003, before spending the summer as an intern with the Tennessee State women's basketball program. She played four years for Morehead State, helping them to the postseason for the first time since 2009-10, before finishing her career at Cumberland University in 2018-19.

A two-time conference all-academic selection, St. Louis also was a Mid-South Conference Champion of Character nominee. She received her bachelor's degree in exercise science from Morehead State in May of 2018, her master's degree in arts and teaching with an emphasis in physical education at Cumberland in May of 2021, and is currently working on her master's in business administration, also from Cumberland.

KENNESAW, Ga. – Following arguably the best season in its Division I history, Kennesaw State men's basketball head coach Amir Abdur-Rahim has signed a four-year contract extension, Director of Athletics Milton Overton announced Thursday. Abdur-Rahim's contract will now run through the 2026-27 season.

In his third year at the helm, the Marietta native guided the Owls to a 13-18 overall record and a win in the 2022 ASUN Conference Tournament. The Owls' 13 total wins on the season surpassed the combined win total from the previous three seasons (12). KSU went 7-9 in the ASUN under Abdur-Rahim this season, which clinched the Owls a fourth-place finish in the East Division and earned the team its first home postseason contest in its Division I history, an eventual 82-73 victory over Eastern Kentucky in the ASUN first round.

The future looks bright for the Owls, as Abdur-Rahim signed the 61st-ranked recruiting class in the nation in his first year after being hired in April of 2019. They made up the backbone of the Owls' starting lineup this season, and all five starters will be returning for the 2022-23 season.

"Coach Abdur-Rahim has worked tirelessly towards the success of KSU athletics and of our men's basketball program," said Kennesaw State University President Kat Schwaig. "The achievements of the team this last season show the strength of our program and of his commitment to the future. I join all of Owl Nation in congratulating Coach Abdur-Rahim and look forward to cheering the team on to greater heights next season."

"Coach Abdur-Rahim has worked hard in elevating the men's basketball program into a contender in the ASUN," said Overton. "The atmosphere and excitement in the Convocation Center was obvious this season, and the efforts put in by Coach Abdur-Rahim and his staff were on display with the team's play. He has done a great job of bringing in the quality of student-athletes that we want in the basketball program, and has kept them here at KSU as well. I look forward to watching the men's basketball program's continued progress."

"My family, staff, and I are extremely appreciative of the belief and support that President Kat Schwaig, the Board of Regents, and AD Overton have in us to continue our vision for the men's basketball program," said Abdur-Rahim. "In the microwave environment of college athletics today, to still have leadership like ours here at Kennesaw State who are able to see and have patience in building a program to sustain over time is invaluable."

To our academic support, strength team and athletic training staff, thank you for helping us create a great environment and drive our culture. I want to thank every player that I've have had the honor to coach here in my time at KSU. Each one of you has helped us get to this point. Lastly, to my staff, you men are the reason we've made the strides we have. Thank you for your loyalty, friendship, and sacrifice. As we go forward, know that we understand that the job isn't finished because our ultimate goal is to graduate our student-athletes, and bring an ASUN championship and NCAA tournament berth to Kennesaw State University."

This past season, the Owls set program-highs for both KemPom and NCAA NET rankings, at 223 and 224, respectively. The previous high in the team's Division I history had been 252 (KenPom) and 250 (NET). The Owls also set program-highs for scoring margin, field goal percentage, field goal defense and most three-pointers made.
