ANSI Door Lock Grades Explained

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.

Roswell will host the 2nd Annual Dia de los Muertos Festival on Saturday, October 30, 2021, from 2:00 to 8:00 p.m., on the grounds of City Hall, 38 Hill Street in Roswell. Visitors of all ages are invited to celebrate this traditional Mexican holiday, which will feature an afternoon and evening filled with fun, remembrance, and community spirit.

Dia de Los Muertos—or the Day of the Dead—is traditionally celebrated October 31 to November 2 in the central and southern regions of Mexico. The holiday is centered around remembrance of lost loved ones, as communities come together to celebrate their memory and pray for their safe spiritual journey.

This year's festival is presented in partnership with Atlanta Foundation for Public Spaces. The City of Roswell hosted the first Dia de los Muertos festival in 2019 but was unable to bring it back in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The festival is free to the public, with the exception of food vendors and one special ticketed experience. Highlights include:

Traditional Entertainment: Aztec dancers, Oaxaca Group and a mariachi band • Food: On-site vendors will sell Mexican cuisine, such as empanadas and tamales. • Face Painting: No Dia de los Muertos celebration would be complete without traditional candy skull face painting. Free, but tips appreciated. • Movie: "Coco," starting at 6 p.m. • Ofrenda: Visit a traditional altar honoring family and friends who have passed. • Costume Contest: Wear your favorite Day of the Dead costume and paint your face for a Catrina and Catrin contest to be held at 5 p.m. Cash prizes will be awarded for best costume. • Tequila/Specialty Margarita Tasting Experience: Showcasing the unique flavors of Mexico, this experience includes tasting tokens and a souvenir tasting glass (for the first 500 participants). For $35, you will receive eight (8) tokens that can be used to taste any combination of six (6) different types of specialty margaritas (4 oz. sample) and four (4) different types of Tequila (a Blanco, Joven, Reposado, or Anejo) (1/2 oz. sample).

Vendor, artist, and exhibitor opportunities are available. All vendors must be Day of the Dead themed, and products must be sold by the artist or direct representative.

For more information about the event, to sign up to be a vendor or artist, or to buy tickets for the Tequila/Specialty Margarita Tasting Experience, visit www.RoswellGov.com/DayOfTheDead.

Questions can be directed to Chris Ward, Special Events Manager, at cward@roswellgov.com.

If the decomposing jack-o'-lantern is creeping you out, share the fall bounty from Roswell pumpkin fields and patches with critters.

ROSWELL — When the jack-o'-lanterns you carved from the best pumpkins plucked from patches and fields around Roswell this fall start looking droopy and sad, they still have life.

While uncarved pumpkins can last two to three months indoors, carved pumpkins usually only last a few days before they start to decay. Streets and porches all over Roswell are often filled with the wilting, sagging faces of jack o'-lanterns getting older by the minute.

But as with Christmas trees a few months later, there are many ways you can recycle these pumpkins that will help birds, wildlife and the planet.

Pumpkin seeds are a healthy and popular snacking treat for a variety of birds and wildlife, especially as the weather gets colder and food is harder to come by. As your pumpkin starts to soften and fade, collect the seeds from inside, and give them a day or so to dry.

Don't add any kind of seasoning, even salt, Birds & Blooms advises.

Then scatter the seeds outside, or put them in a birdfeeder or bowl. If you live in an area with bears or other harmful predators, try placing the seeds on an upper level that only birds and smaller animals like squirrels and chipmunks can reach.

2. Make A 'Snack-O'-Lantern'

You can also just cut out the middleman and turn the pumpkin itself into a "snack-o'-lantern pumpkin feeder," according to the National Wildlife Federation.

Just take the pumpkin, cut it in half, scoop out the middle, and attach the top and bottom halves of the pumpkin with string and several wooden dowels.

Fill the bottom half with either birdseed, pumpkin seeds, or both. See here for more detailed instructions from the National Wildlife Foundation.

You could also use the seeds for their intended purpose: making more pumpkins.

To save and store pumpkin seeds for the following year, place the pulp and seeds from the pumpkin inside a colander, according to Gardening Know How. Wash cold water over it, and pick out a few of the largest seeds.

Spread the rinsed seeds far apart from each other on a dry towel, and place that towel in a cool, dry spot for a week.

Place the seeds in a seed envelope, and place the seed envelope in a plastic container with several holes poked in the lid. Put that container in the back of a refrigerator, and get ready to plant your own private pumpkin patch next year.

Animals and birds love pumpkins just as much as people do, so why not give them a special treat? Simply cut the pumpkin into small, bite-sized pieces, and scatter them in a spot where you won't mind local critters coming to nosh, the National Wildlife Federation advises.

Again, this one is probably best to avoid if bears, foxes, coyotes, rats or any variety of predators and pests are a problem nearby.

If you feel more comfortable leaving the animal feeding to professionals, consider donating the pumpkin remains to a nearby zoo. Many zoos accept pumpkin donations after Halloween because they are a nutritious snack that most animals love.

If your pumpkin is truly on its last proverbial legs, put its nutrients back into the earth by composting it. Even if you don't have a compost pile, you can put it in your garden, and many areas offer municipal composting services. Just make sure you take out all the seeds first, lest an impromptu pumpkin patch begins to sprout out of the compost.

How To Store Pumpkins After Fall Trips To Roswell Patches

ROSWELL — A trip to the pumpkin patch or field in Roswell may be necessary for local residents who want to carve a jack-o'-lantern from or decorate their homes with the best pumpkins around this fall.

But for some pumpkin lovers, it's possible to grow, harvest, cure and store your own at home. First, you need pumpkins. The Roswell area offers these patches and fields:

Now that you know where to find the best pumpkins this fall, here's more need-to-know information:

When the pumpkins have reached their optimal size, cut them from the vine with a sharp knife or garden looper, Harvest to Table advises. First, leave 3-6 inches of stem attached to the fruit, so the pumpkin can be protected from disease and insect attacks.

Slip a hand under the bottom of the pumpkin, with the stem intact, and carry them away from the vine. Clean the pumpkin with soapy water to remove soil and kill pathogens on the surface. Harvest to Table says to use one part bleach to 10 parts water.

Set the pumpkin in a warm place — anywhere from 80-85 degrees should work — for 10-14 days, Harvest to Table says.

For people in Roswell who have completed all the above steps already in 2021, it may be time to store the pumpkins before displaying them in the fall.

Store them at about 50 degrees, with about 60 percent humidity, according to Harvest to Table. A shed or garage could be an ideal spot. Do not let the pumpkins touch.

If done right, the pumpkins could stay in good condition for two to three months.

It's too late to start pumpkin growing this year, but beginning this process next spring could lead to some orange beauties come fall 2022.

It's not only large pumpkin fields that produce the orange, fall traditional fruit. Pumpkins can be grown in ordinary back yards, too, but only if there's enough space.

Pumpkins are often referred to as a "garden gorilla," gardening experts at HGTV said in a guide on how to grow pumpkins. The vines of the large plants sprawl and expand throughout the growing season, much like watermelons. They grow quickly, and can take out other plants if not contained.

Backyard gardeners have been known to tuck the pumpkin plants along the edges of a vegetable garden, although some let their pumpkin vines ramble across the yard.

Pumpkin seeds should be planted in rows, or "pumpkin hills," so the soil will warm more quickly, according to Almanac.com. Dig 12-15 inches into the ground, plant the seeds 1 inch deep into the hills, and space the hills 4-8 feet apart.

When the plants reach 2-3 inches tall, thin to 2-3 plants per hill by cutting off the unwanted plants.

Pumpkins should be planted in May or early June, after the final spring frost. In Roswell, that means around June 26 for when to begin outdoor planting, or March 7 if starting to plant pumpkins in pots.
