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.

ALPHARETTA-MILTON, GA — Applications for the federal Paycheck Protection Program have closed after benefiting more than 11.8 million pandemic-stricken businesses, including many in Alpharetta-Milton.
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 Alpharetta-Milton businesses that benefited from the program according to the SBA. Check here for a full, searchable database.
AXIOM STAFFING GROUP, INC.
JRL COAL, INC.
TM RESTAURANT GROUP, LLC
TECHNOLOGY RESOURCE SOLUTIONS INC
NEXT LEVEL BUSINESS SERVICES INC.
BOOSTER ENTERPRISES INC
INTERNAL DATA RESOURCES, INC
ALORA PHARMACEUTICALS, LLC
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.

returns to Downtown Alpharetta for its eighth year on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 8 - 9 from 5 p.m. – 11 p.m. The FREE admission festival will showcase more than thirty (30) performances by singer-songwriters representing a variety of music genres on more than six outdoor stages throughout the Downtown Alpharetta area. This year’s festival will feature headliners Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors and Ruthie Foster. In addition to music, festival goers can enjoy food from local restaurants and food trucks.
The Wire & Wood Alpharetta Music Festival brings together nationally and locally recognized musicians to perform their original hit songs. The 2021 event will feature six stages across Downtown Alpharetta including Milton Avenue, Town Green and Brooke Street Park. Additional stages located inside downtown businesses participating in the city’s Music Match initiative will also feature local talent, supporting the city’s efforts to become Alpharetta Music City.
The Wire & Wood Alpharetta Music Festival will feature a headliner performance from four-time Grammy nominee blues artist, Ruthie Foster, on Friday night, Oct. 8. Hailing from a small town in Texas, the vocal powerhouse has been described by Rolling Stone as “pure magic to watch and hear”. Drawing influence from legendary acts like Mavis Staples and Aretha Franklin, Foster developed a unique sound unable to be contained within a single genre. During her service in the US Navy, she sang for the Navy’s band Pride. It was here that her love of performing became apparent. After leaving the service, Ruthie solidified her place as an up-and-coming singer-songwriter with ten albums including her latest album “Live at the Paramount”, released in May of 2020. As Ruthie wraps her oh-so-malleable, impeccably nuanced voice around each song, the wisdom of her selections, the strength of each arrangement, their near-seamless flow and the outstanding talent of her band converge into yet another reminder that Foster’s artistry really is in a league of its own.
Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors, an Americana act hailing from Nashville, TN, will headline the festival on Saturday night, Oct. 9. He and his band have always charged listeners’ hearts and minds while inspiring them to think, feel, dance and love. Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors have developed their sound through extensive touring, performing alongside Amos Lee, Willie Nelson, John Hiatt, Needtobreathe, Don Henley and more. Their most recent album, “Dragons”, is the most collaborative to date and features artists and songwriters including Lori McKenna, Natalie Hemby, Sean McConnell, The Lone Bellow and Ellie Holcomb. The success of “Dragons” led to a career spanning feature in which Rolling Stone declared Holcomb as “One of Americana’s most popular stars.” Holcomb has traveled the globe with a catalog of vibrant, honest songs that explore the full range of American roots music.

Michigan State lands commitment from 2022 DE Chase Carter

Forty-plus days away from the 2021 season, Michigan State has picked up a head-to-head win over a Big Ten program.
Three-star defensive end Chase Carter on Tuesday announced his commitment to the Spartans, ending a recruitment that came down to MSU and Iowa. The Minnehaha Academy (Minn.) standout is MSU’s 15th commitment in the class of 2022, and the first defensive lineman.
MSU offered Carter last October and considered him a priority throughout the 2022 cycle. He took an official visit to East Lansing the weekend of June 4.
The 6-foot-6, 215-pound Carter is ranked on the industry-generated 247Sports Composite as the No. 943 overall prospect, No. 129 defensive lineman and No. 6 player in Minnesota. The 247Sports rankings have him at No. 143 among defensive line prospects and No. 7 in Minnesota. In addition to the Spartans and Hawkeyes, Carter received football offers from Iowa State, Nebraska and Central Michigan.
The addition of Carter will jump MSU two spots to No. 30 nationally in the 247Sports team recruiting rankings.
With Carter in the fold, MSU will likely look to add a second defensive end and one defensive tackle to wrap up its D-line haul in the 2022 class.
The Spartans’ other 2022 commitments are Kristian Phillips, a three-star interior offensive lineman from Salem (Ga.); Gavin Broscious, a three-star interior offensive lineman from Desert Edge (Ariz.); Tyrell Henry, a three-star wide receiver from Roseville; Ashton Lepo, a three-star offensive tackle from Grand Haven; Malik Spencer, a three-star safety from Buford (Ga.); Quavian Carter, a three-star linebacker from Lee County (Ga.); Braden Miller, a three-star offensive tackle from Eaglecrest (Colo.); Michael Masunas, a three-star tight end from Hamilton (Ariz.); Jaron Glover, a three-star wide receiver from Riverview (Fla.); Jack Stone, a three-star kicker from Highland Park (Tex.); Shannon Blair, a three-star cornerback from Knoxville (Tenn.) West; Katin Houser, a three-star quarterback from St. John Bosco (Calif.); Ade Willie, a three-star cornerback from IMG Academy (Fla.); and Jack Nickel, a three-star tight end from Milton (Ga.).
