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.

College football Week 1 preview | What to expect out of Georgia's top teams

As Georgia, Georgia Tech and Georgia State all kick off their 2022 seasons, here's what you can expect from each team in the opening week.

ATLANTA — For college football fans, the start of September signals new beginnings. It's a time where all teams are equal, until they aren't.

The Dawgs, Yellow Jackets and Panthers all square off in college football's first week on Labor Day weekend, and all have quite the matchup on their hands.

Here's what you can expect from each team in the season opener:

The defending national champion Bulldogs broke their 41-year title drought by beating Alabama in the 2021 College Football Playoff championship game by a final of 33-18. Georgia fans have much to boast about heading into the new campaign, including the return of much of their offensive firepower, most notably Stetson Bennett.

It's safe to say there will be no shortage of options for Bennett in 2022. Georgia has a 3-headed monster at tight end, led by sophomore Brock Bowers, the 2021 Football Writers Association of America's Freshman of the Year. Bowers led the team in both receptions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns in 2021 with 56 catches for 892 yards and 13 scores. He's joined by 6-foot 7-inch tight end Darnell Washington and former 5-star tight end LSU transfer out of Marietta High School, Arik Gilbert. Other key notable returners include senior Kenny McIntosh and junior Kendall Milton at running back, and sophomores Ladd McConkey and Adonai Mitchell at wide receiver.

The Bulldogs set the modern NFL record with 15 draft picks in the 2022 draft, with seven of those stars going in the first three rounds from the defensive side of the ball: Travon Walker, Jordan Davis, Quay Walker, Devonte Wyatt, Lewis Cine, Nakobe Dean and Channing Tindall. It appears the defensive side of the ball may be the only real "question mark" this team has as they open their season versus Oregon. Despite the losses, defensive leader and linebacker Nolan Smith, cornerback Kelee Ringo and safety Christopher Smith return for the Dawgs.

For the Yellow Jackets, their 2022 season is a bit more unpredictable. Georgia Tech head coach Geoff Collins enters the season on the hot seat having compiled a record of just 9-25 after three consecutive three-win seasons.

It won't get any easier for the Jackets either, as they will have to contend with the toughest out-of-conference strength of schedule in the ACC, according to FB Schedules. Georgia Tech will have to play No. 21 Ole Miss at Bobby Dodd Stadium while traveling to play Georgia in Athens and UCF in Orlando. In conference, they get to face two more ranked teams, which includes their season opener against fourth-ranked Clemson and a date later on in the year with No. 17 Pittsburgh before they host No. 16 Miami.

They return sophomore quarterback Jeff Sims and have multiple senior skill players on the offensive side of the ball, but have big-time question marks with all of their projected starting offensive lineman being underclassmen.

It won't be an easy task for the Panthers in Week 1, as they deal with an SEC foe who upgraded at quarterback, getting Oklahoma transfer Spencer Rattler. Georgia State will battle four consecutive teams from the Carolinas to begin the year, playing North Carolina, UNC-Charlotte and Coastal Carolina following the Gamecocks.

They return senior quarterback Darren Grainger and will look to build off an 8-5 season a year ago.

Kirby Smart discusses RB Kendall Milton, provides injury updates on AD Mitchell, others

Foe the 2nd consecutive September, Georgia is the talk of the college football world.

The Bulldogs, who play Kent State on Saturday, have been absolutely dominant thus far in 2022, outscoring their opponents 130-10 through 3 games.

Still, Georgia coach Kirby Smart said Wednesday during his weekly appearance on the SEC coaches teleconference that there’s still improvement to be made, and that includes a defense that has allowed only 1 touchdown this season.

“Communication across the board,” said Smart when asked about where his defense can improve. “We’ve got a lot of plays where we have players on different pages and that can be costly in critical situations.”

Smart was also asked Wednesday about what he has seen from junior running back Kendall Milton, who’s the Bulldogs’ leading rusher with 167 yards and 2 touchdowns on the year.

“Kendall’s a hard worker,” Smart said. “He does a great job each and every day. He’s had some injuries the past couple of years that have held him back. … Certainly is a big, physical back. He’s worked so hard to get where he can catch the ball out of the backfield better. … He’s showed a lot of maturity to improve in that area.”

And finally Wednesday, Smart provided injury updates on a few of his players.

“We’re hopeful to get AD (Mitchell) back,” Smart said. “He’s getting closer. … Nyland’s (Green) running. Don’t know if he’ll be able to play this week, but he’s getting close. Earnest (Green) is looking as good as he has all year. … He may be available for this game. We’ll see how today’s practice and Thursday’s go.”

As for defensive tackle Jalen Carter’s status, Smart said, “Still don’t know. He was limited yesterday. It’ll probably remain that way today. We’ll see how he’s able to push through. It’s not a severe ankle injury, but at that position, you put a lot of stress on that.”

The Bulldogs and Golden Flashes are set for a noon (ET) kick off on Saturday. The game will be televised by ESPN+ and SEC Network+, and Georgia is currently a 45-point favorite.

Fulton County Participates in Disability Voting Rights Week

The Fulton County is rallying the disability vote, making sure all voters are registered and have access to the ballot.

As a partner of Disability Voting Rights Week, the Fulton County Department of Registration and Elections is building the power of the disability vote in our communities during the week of September 12-16, 2022. Coordinated by the American Association of People with Disabilities’ (AAPD) and the REV UP Campaign, Disability Voting Rights Week is a nonpartisan initiative to help build the power and presence of the disability vote.

Throughout the week, the message for fellow disabled voters is loud and clear – Your vote is your right, and your vote is powerful. There are over 38 million people with disabilities who are eligible to vote. However, discrimination, inaccessible voting processes, and exclusion from democracy lead to a turnout gap between voters with and without disabilities.

“Fulton County Department of Registration and Elections is constantly working to ensure the voices of all voters are heard when they enter one of our polling locations to cast their ballots,” said Interim Director of Registration and Elections Nadine Williams.

To ensure that disabled voters receive the resources needed to exercise their right to vote, the Fulton County Voter Education Outreach team will continue its push to hit the streets. The team will visit the following locations:

Georgia Bulldogs vs South Carolina: 5 reasons why UGA wins SEC opener

No. 1 Georgia football (2-0) travels to South Carolina (1-1) for the Bulldogs’ SEC opener on Saturday.

It’s a noon kickoff in Columbia, S.C.

Buy Bulldogs Tickets

The Dawgs roll into town coming off of a hot start headed into Week-3. Georgia took care of business last week versus Samford 33-0 after walloping No. 25 Oregon 49-3 in Week-1.

The Gamecocks will try to bounce back after a 44-30 loss at No. 10 Arkansas a week ago.

Here’s why the Bulldogs keep their streak alive and walk away with the win.

The emergence of Kendall Milton in Georgia’s backfield is one big reason the Bulldogs offense has been firing on all cylinders.

Milton’s 7.5 yards per carry is ranked second among all SEC backs (Min. 15 attempts) and leads the Dawgs on the ground (135 yards).

Senior running back Kenny McIntosh’s skills as a runner and receiver add to the attack.

McIntosh helps open run lanes with his threat as a pass catcher, and actually leads the Bulldogs in receiving (178 yards).

How does South Carolina matchup with the Bulldogs offensive weaopns?

I’ve mentioned Milton and Edwards, and there are plenty more to go around.

Tight ends Darnell Washington and Brock Bowers are a nightmare for linebackers and defensive backs when called upon.

UGA’s second-leading pass catcher, Ladd McConkey, has looked unguardable at times this season.

It’s the way Georgia gets these guys involved that has impressed under third-year offensive coordinator Todd Monken.

One reason the Gamecocks will struggle to matchup with UGA’s offense is the depth concerns on defense.

Take a look at South Carolina’s defensive injury report for Saturday:

Strachan and Kaba are the Gamecocks best defenders entering the season and are both out for the year.

With another four starters questionable for the game, South Carolina may run into depth issues when the game gets into the second half.

Georgia would have an advantage over most teams in this area. The Bulldogs front seven has exceeded expectations after losing six contributors from last season.

The youth at linebacker and corner hasn’t slowed UGA down any so far, and if South Carolina’s showing at Arkansas was any indicator, Georgia should make it tough for the Gamecocks to get the run established.

The Gamecocks rushed for only 40 yards on the Razorbacks and gave up six sacks.

It may get ugly if South Carolina can’t run the ball and the Bulldogs are able to pin their ears back on quarterback Spencer Rattler.

Credit: Jeff Blake-USA TODAY Sports

Field advantage is a tangible aspect of SEC football and South Carolina’s Williams-Brice Stadium is one of the loudest environments in the conference.

Unfortunately for the Gamecocks, the crowd might not be so rowdy in a noon kickoff.

I’d like to see a night game as much as anyone, but if you’re Georgia you aren’t complaining.
