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.

Patch asked candidates to answer questions about their campaigns and will be publishing candidate profiles as the primary draws near.

Makia Metzger is running for Cobb County Solicitor General.

Name

Makia Metzger

City or town of residence

Powder Springs

Office sought

Office of the Cobb County Solicitor General's Office

Party affiliation

Democrat

Education

Juris Doctor/Law Degree and Bachelor or Arts

Occupation

Attorney for 17 years and Prosecuting Attorney for 15 years

Family

Married to an educator, Britt, who is a Georgia native and we share two sons Will (15) and Eli (9).

Does anyone in your family work in politics or government?

No I do not.

Age

47

Previous public office, appointive or elective

No I have never held public office.

Why are you seeking this office?

I am running for this office because I see a vital need for representation in Cobb County and a need for a seasoned alternative with 15 years of prosecutorial work experience and relevant lived experiences that mirror our diverse community. Having practiced in one of the most dynamic jurisdictions managing high caseloads in Fulton County, I have dealt with all types of situations and cases to include misdemeanors, felonies as well as juvenile cases. As a Black woman who pulled herself up through college while working, graduating summa cum laude, and then attending law school, I empathize with the difficulties and challenges many face as they traverse a society that demeans poverty, race, class and sexual orientation while also struggling within our own minority communities to be deemed relevant. Electing leaders who mirror Cobb County is an absolute necessity in creating healthy communities today.

Please complete this statement: The single most pressing issue facing my constituents is ___, and this is what I intend to do about it.

I am running for the Office of Cobb Solicitor General because I see a vital need for representation in Cobb County and a need for a seasoned alternative with 15 years of prosecutorial work experience and relevant lived experiences that mirror our diverse community.

Electing leaders who mirror Cobb County is an absolute necessity in creating healthy communities today.

What are the major differences between you and the other candidates seeking this post?

I am not a part of, nor will I ever be a part of "Old Marietta," or the "good old boy" network that has been a stronghold in the Office of the Cobb Solicitor General for over 25 years. Both of my opponents have a decade or more of adhering to the old ways and mores. I am a representation of the new Cobb, bringing diversity and integrity through my public and private actions. I will be transparent to voters by providing data-driven analytics to assess programs, something the office has failed to do in the past, so that voters will have the ability to celebrate our communities successes and hold their elected official accountable.

If you are challenging an incumbent, in what way has the current officeholder failed the community?

Not applicable

What other issues do you intend to address during your campaign?

Criminal Justice Reform, evidence based prosecution, ongoing implicit bias training, diversity in hiring and promoting, community prosecution, expanding rehabilitation through pre-trial diversions (dealing with mental health, substance abuse and systemic factors) and reducing recidivism through community outreach, engagement and resources tailored for the communities we serve and working with our non-profit and legislative partners to expand expungement opportunities to re-integrate individuals back into communities as healthy citizens.

What accomplishments in your past would you cite as evidence you can handle this job?

Working my way through college to obtain my Bachelor of Arts degree and helping my single mom raise my younger brother, who is now an engineer. Standing up for equal pay for prosecutors and helping create job classifications that led to raises for prosecutors to match other government attorneys 10 years ago. Mentoring legal interns and new attorneys as a senior attorney and trying cases without a second chair on numerous occasions while working huge caseloads similar to running a solo practice where I had to ensure all discovery was served in a timely fashion, manage paralegals and support staff to ensure professionalism and legal compliance with filing and serving subpoenas. Sitting and training with new attorneys in the Solicitor's Office as well as in the Juvenile Division as they tried cases for the first time and ensuring they followed rules of evidence and didn't commit errors that would lead to costly appeals. Within my first year of practice, I co-managed an office as a transactional attorney where we employed pre-closers, paralegals and closers and had to ensure we (the attorneys) could pay our overhead costs and make payroll every month.

What is the best advice anyone ever gave you?

The prosecutor is powerful, so you must always remember to dispense justice fairly with integrity and always do what is right even if it means you won't be liked by all. This is not a popularity contest.

Is there anything else you would like voters to know about yourself and your positions?

I will put people first over politics by ensuring that solutions are not a one size fit all and tailored for each individual case and person, and by creating transparency and access to information for the citizens of Cobb. Practical solutions mean efficient prosecution so that our victims can obtain the help and resources they need in a timely fashion, so that the accused can also get closure and meaningful rehabilitation as prolonged wait times are an injustice to our citizens of Cobb, prolonged sentences are an injustice to the citizens of Cobb as well as accountability courts that can't show their levels of success within our communities. I will prosecute cases efficiently, bringing much needed relief to our communities.

The annual ranking released by U.S. News and World Report evaluates schools based on graduation rates, academic performance and more.

MARIETTA, GA — Walton High School ranks No. 4 in the state according to a new national ranking by U.S. News and World Report. This year's list of the best high schools evaluated more than 17,800 schools nationwide, including several in Cobb County.

The 2022 ranking of the best high schools is intended to show how well the nation's public schools serve all students, regardless of achievement level, by teaching them basic skills and preparing them for college-level work, according to a news release from U.S. News.

Families can also use the rankings to see how schools compare at the national, state and local levels on factors such as graduation rates and college readiness.

These Marietta schools were ranked among the best in Georgia, according to U.S. News:

This year, the top 15 schools nationally are in 14 different states

Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in Alexandria, Virginia, was ranked No. 1 in the nation, as well as among magnet schools.

Here are the top 10 schools in this year's national Best High Schools ranking:

This year's schools were ranked on six measures: college readiness, college curriculum breadth, state assessment performance, state assessment proficiency, reading and math proficiency, reading and math performance, underserved student performance and graduation rates.

The data used in this year's ranking is from the 2019-20 academic school year. U.S. News adjusted its calculation of these measures to account for the impact COVID-19 had on schools in the 2019-20 school year.

Since most states closed schools for in-person instruction starting in March 2020 — typically just before most states conduct assessments — the U.S. Department of Education granted waivers allowing all states to forgo state testing for the 2019-20 school year.

To account for this, U.S. News relied on past assessment data from the three prior ranking years. Researchers also incorporated state science assessment data from the 2018-19 school year.Read more about the Best High Schools methodology.

In addition to the national rankings, U.S. News also published rankings at the state, metro area and school district levels. Only metro areas and school districts with three or more high schools were included in these subrankings.

Signature School in Indiana is at the top of the list for charter schools, and Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in Virginia is the No. 1 magnet school. The Davidson Academy of Nevada is the top STEM school.

The Marietta History Center will host a traveling exhibit about the Dixie Highway until July 30.

Before the interstate highway system was built, the Dixie Highway, which commenced development in 1915, was a major route between the southern states and the upper midwest, and stretched from Canada to Florida, splitting into east and west segments several times along the route to pass through cities that lobbied to be included.

The portion of the highway in Cobb County corresponded with Old Highway 41.

The announcement posted on the City of Marietta website described the exhibit as follows:

The Marietta History Center will be hosting a traveling exhibit, “Gateway to the South: Remembering the Dixie Highway” from the Bandy Heritage Center. Beginning in 1915, the Dixie Highway was a prominent feature of everyday life in the early 20th century south. This exhibit features historic images of the Dixie Highway in its prime. Highlights include popular tourists’ spots, advertisements along the highway, and local businesses. This exhibit is courtesy of the Bandy Heritage Center for Northwest Georgia and will be displayed here at the Marietta History Center and augmented with images and artifacts connected to the Dixie Highway from the MHC’s collection. The temporary exhibit is included with regular admission.

The Marietta History Center is located at 1 Depot Street, Marietta, GA 30060.

Cost: $7 Adults, $5 Senior / Student, FREE for Children under 5 and those with a Military ID

About the Marietta History Center

The Marietta History Center, located in the historic Kennesaw House building, has been open since 1996. The exhibits are on the second floor of the building.

The MHC website describes the history of the building (paraphrased below):

Originally built as a cotton warehouse by John Glover in 1845, the building was remodeled by Dix Fletcher to become the Fletcher House Hotel in 1855.

The history center states:

During the Civil War the hotel temporarily served as a makeshift hospital and morgue. For this reason, the building has become the subject of many stories and local ghost folklore. This notoriety has led to appearances on CNN, The History Channel and PBS.

The building was originally four stories high, but the top floor caught fire during the Civil War and was never rebuilt.
