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.

Details Announced for New Jump Trail in Roswell, Georgia

PRESS RELEASE: Roswell-Alpharetta Mountain Bike Organization

Roswell-Alpharetta Mountain Bike Organization (RAMBO), a SORBA Chapter and 501(c)3 nonprofit, is proud to announce the construction of a new mountain bike flow and jump trail in the City of Roswell’s Big Creek Park starting late May 2022. The new Hollywood trail will be professionally built by national trailbuilders, Innovative Dirt Solutions in the park’s popular Freeride Area. The new trail will be RAMBO’s largest financial investment in the park’s history. The trail will include a new progressive wood road gap feature, plus a dozen large jumps and berms over a quarter of a mile in length. Expected completion for Hollywood trail is July 1, 2022.

Major funding for this new trail project was provided by community grants from corporate partners, Sunbelt Rentals, Maxxis Tires USA, and REI Co-op. Volunteers from these organizations will also take part in the finishing of the trail, alongside RAMBO volunteers, totaling more than 500 man-hours of community service.

Additional trail project support will be provided by local businesses: Hanley Restorations, ABM Agency, Blue Mountain Bikes, AVC Marine, TKD Sign Studios, and generous GoFundMe donations from local riders and residents.

“This is a very exciting time for our community, and we’re grateful to have both corporate and local businesses investing in new trails and more fun for riders young and old. The Hollywood trail will add to the existing seven miles of multi-use trails at Big Creek Park, which also brings out-of-town riders to stay overnight in Roswell to support our local economy.” - Brad Wender, RAMBO President

The Big Creek Freeride Area has been evolving since its founding in 1996, and the mountain bike trail network offers a unique mountain bike park experience within an urban setting. The progressive trails allow riders to develop their skills through a challenging, gravity-fed trail network. Local middle and high school mountain bike teams, from the Georgia Cycling Association, call Big Creek Park their training home for each fall season of interscholastic racing.

“We are extremely excited about this project and the opportunities that it will create for the members of our community and other visitors from the southeast. The City is proud of our partnership with RAMBO, and appreciate all of their efforts in facilitating this project and the expansion of the mountain bike trail system at Big Creek Park.” – Steven Malone, Deputy Director, Roswell Recreation, Parks, Historic & Cultural Affairs Department

Big Creek Park attracts 5,000+ mountain bikers and hikers monthly, and this new trail is expected to attract even more visitors from across the Southeast to stay in Roswell. RAMBO is grateful for the partnership with the City of Roswell’s Recreation, Parks, Historic & Cultural Affairs, as well as the Community Development Department to bring the trail concept to reality.

RAMBO is a Roswell-based 501(c)3 nonprofit, a chapter of the Southern Off Road Bicycle Association (SORBA), and affiliated with the International Mountain Bike Association (IMBA). RAMBO and its volunteers have donated more than 27,000 hours of community service and a total financial investment value of more than $500,000 into local parks in Roswell, Alpharetta and Forsyth County over the past 20 years. RAMBO’s mission is to partner with land managers to build and maintain public mountain bike trails, plus offer fun events like our Big Creek Quick Six Enduro and programs for kids and adults in the local community.

Wellstar spends $10 million on cancer center expansion

ROSWELL, Ga. — Wellstar North Fulton Hospital is investing approximately $10 million to expand its cancer center program over the next year.Jon-Paul Croom, president of Wellstar North Fulton Hospital, says the fully comprehensive cancer center will house surgical, medical and radiation oncology, and an approximately $6 million CyberKnife system to treat everything from brain tumors and prostate cancers to lung cancers.CyberKnife technology, a non-invasive option for surgically complex or inoperable tumors that enables the...

ROSWELL, Ga. — Wellstar North Fulton Hospital is investing approximately $10 million to expand its cancer center program over the next year.

Jon-Paul Croom, president of Wellstar North Fulton Hospital, says the fully comprehensive cancer center will house surgical, medical and radiation oncology, and an approximately $6 million CyberKnife system to treat everything from brain tumors and prostate cancers to lung cancers.

CyberKnife technology, a non-invasive option for surgically complex or inoperable tumors that enables the radiation oncologist to deliver targeted, high doses of radiation, requires no anesthesia, hospitalization or lengthy recovery period. Wellstar North Fulton’s sister facility, Wellstar Kennestone Hospital, is currently the only program in Atlanta that offers patients with this capability.

Up till now, patients have had to wait up to four weeks to get on the CyberKnife machine. Dr. Mark McLaughlin, a radiation oncologist who is spearheading the expansion, said anywhere from 10 to 15 patients a week are transferred from North Fulton to the Kennestone location to have their radiation treatment.

“They’re either outpatients who live in the Roswell, Alpharetta area, or they’re in-patients who have to be transferred from one hospital to the other to get radiation because they’re so sick,” McLaughlin said. “Our expectation is, once we get situated here and have full-time staff, that is going to grow incrementally.”

McLaughlin has been at Wellstar North Fulton for about three and a-half years and with the Wellstar system since 2005. Before that, he worked at the Mayo Clinic for nearly 14 years but came back to take care of his parents when they had cancer. Having been on both sides, McLaughlin said he hopes Wellstar North Fulton can become a “cancer destination” for the community.

“When my parents were diagnosed with cancer, I remember I had to go to one building, to another, to another,” McLaughlin said. “It wasn’t all concrete. At North Fulton, our goal is to have everything together, so the patient can come to one destination and meet multiple physicians. It promotes efficiency, quicker care and better communication.”

Croom said this will all complement Wellstar North Fulton’s STAT Clinics, which is one of the things that makes its cancer services so unique. The STAT Clinics bring multiple cancer experts, including medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, cancer surgeons and other specialists, to collaborate and offer a personalized treatment plan. As a result, patients and their families are able to ask questions, make decisions and start treatment sooner.

“This is something that’s been offered here for a while but will become better as we add on radiation,” Croom said. “… It truly reduces anxiety when it comes to waiting for the process to start, so it’s really something that I think makes this hospital very special. And, as we grow, that’s going to continue to be something very special that we have here. That truly is a concierge type touch we offer to everybody.”

Over the next 12 months, Croom said, the hospital is also working with North Georgia Oncology Centers, or NGOC, to move its infusion center to Wellstar North Fulton’s 4500 building, so they can provide chemotherapy. NGOC and the Mayo Clinic partner with Wellstar North Fulton to provide research.

Additionally, Croom said, the hospital is building out its radiation therapy on the ground floor of the 4500 building to include a vault with thick walls to contain the radiation during treatment using the CyberKnife machine.

“Our cancer center will be both in the existing building and the new building that will be attached to that,” Croom said. “… So, we’re really taking a step beyond what’s being offered here and adding more to the excellent care already being offered in the Roswell, Alpharetta area.”

Croom said the expansion is expected to add 20 or so jobs, with more to come as the cancer center grows.

A groundbreaking ceremony, which will serve as Wellstar North Fulton’s official announcement, is slated for Wednesday, May 25.

Mother's Day 2022 Gifts: What Do Roswell Moms Really Want?

Check out these Roswell gift shops, spas and florists in time for Mother's Day this year.

ROSWELL, GA — What do Roswell moms want from their kids this Mother's Day?

What many will likely get come May 8 are jewelry and Mother's Day brunch or dinner out. Those two categories are driving a record $31.7 billion in Mother's Day spending, a $3.6 billion increase over last year's record, according to a report last week from the National Retail Federation and Prosper Insight & Analytics.

Some 84 percent of U.S. adults said they plan to celebrate Mother's Day with a gift, spending $245 on average on their mothers and mother figures, the report said. Jewelry stores alone are expected to see $7 billion in spending, according to the report.

That's good news for jewelry and keepsake shops around Roswell.

If you're planning to treat Mom to dinner out, reservations are going quickly at restaurants in Roswell, including those OpenTable recently listed among the 100 Best Brunch Spots in America. Reservations are up 39 percent from pre-pandemic 2019, and up 13 percent from 2021, the online reservation service said last week.

And, according to the OpenTable survey, almost half (48 percent) of moms want to celebrate Mother's Day at a restaurant. The survey of 1,255 adults also showed that 45 percent plan to make up for lost time with their mother figures during the pandemic by "going big" this year.

A 2021 YouGov poll revealed the top five gifts moms want are flowers, a card with a heartfelt message, a gift certificate to the spa or for a massage, jewelry and chocolate. Most moms are satisfied with however their children honor them on Mother's Day, though, with 58 percent saying they've never been disappointed by their kids' shows of affection and appreciation.

Some reliable go-to places for gifts in Roswell include

We took our own informal survey of several Patch moms. While by no means scientific, it revealed some similar themes.

"We have always had the girls make homemade cards — even now that they are teenagers," one mom told us, adding the handwritten notes are "so much more meaningful than any Hallmark card could ever be."

Some new moms and those with small children don't want stuff as much as they do a break.

"New moms can't expect to get anything from the kids," one Patch mom told us. "I'd say a restaurant gift certificate for them. That's one less meal to cook."

Another said: "My toddler keeps me running around all the time and doesn't sleep, so any time I can have to take care of myself, anything to feel pampered even just for an hour — mani/pedi, hair blown out, restaurant gift card so I don't have to cook, or just an offer to watch him for one hour."

It never hurts to drop a hint.

"I want a plant — not flowers, because they don't last as long — but a plant that my husband knows I have a spot for and the right light for," one mom told us. Another said, "you can never go wrong with a bottle of wine."

And another Patch mom treats herself to a hike on Mother's Day. "The kids usually join in," she said, "even if they don't want to."

Said another: "Alone time! Night at a hotel. Dinner date or night out with friends. Meals pre-ordered and handled."

Precious ones, we have news for you: Each of you is going to give your mom 45 pieces of homemade artwork between now and when you leave the nest, according to a survey last year conducted by OnePoll for the art website Canvaspop. And while your moms may say they'll treasure your creative expressions as if Picasso himself were responsible — and, in fact, three-fourths of them display some of it on their walls — another fact is 41 percent agree you're "no Picasso."

So, change that up, kiddos.

More than two-thirds of moms last year said they want more family photos for their walls, but with a catch: Give mom a break from behind the shutter and take photos that include her. The average mom surveyed said she's featured in less than half of family photos.

This survey was in 2021, but unless you wore out the shutter on your camera taking photos, the advice holds.

With inflation at a 40-year high, money is tight for many Smyrna families. Experiences count a lot with moms, and they don't have to break the budget.

"I don't need stuff," a Patch mom with an adult child told us. She just wants to spend quality time with her daughter.

"A mom's view of Mother's Day changes as kids get older," another Patch mom said. "When they were little, homemade cards and a Mother's Day spa getaway from them was pure bliss. Now the perfect Mother's Day for me involves dressing up, going out to dinner, and listening to all of their laughter and stories."

But, she said, "I still love the homemade cards and have saved them all through the years!"

Here's another idea: Pick up a nice, cloth-covered journal and write down some of your favorite memories of Mom. Be sure to include some of the bits of advice she's dished out over the years. And don't forget to tell her she was right.

Or how about a scavenger hunt for some of Mom's favorite things? That idea comes from Woman's Day. Or how about a custom jigsaw puzzle of a cherished family photo featuring Mom front and center? (This assumes you've followed the advice above and gotten Mom out from behind the shutter.)

What is your idea of a perfect Mother's Day gift? Tell us in the comments.
