Finding a certified, experienced locksmith is no easy task. Sure, dozens of companies out there will dispatch an indifferent “technician” that offers “quick” solutions when you lose your keys.

If you are a business owner in Georgia, you have the weighty responsibility of protecting your patrons and securing your businesses’ assets. The most common way for entrepreneurs to keep their business safe is by having a commercial locksmith in Acworth install quality, reliable locks on every entry point of your storefront. But, unfortunately, many business owners take the least amount of effort necessary when it comes to protecting their business.
Whether you own several franchise locations or have a single storefront, it only takes one break-in to make you realize the importance of installing high-quality locks for your commercial property. Sadly, at that point, it’s too late – your ability to provide for your family and pay your bills has been compromised. For that reason alone, it’s always better to be proactive about your businesses’ security rather than reactive.
At Arrowhead Lock & Safe, our commercial door lock services are designed to ensure that your assets and your customers are protecting 24-hours a day, seven days a week. We will always take the time to walk you through your options, explaining the pros and cons of each security solution so that you can make an informed decision.

Installing high-quality door locks for your business is one of the best ways to protect your assets and your commercial property. At Arrowhead Lock & Safe, we offer many commercial door lock options from the best brands in our industry.

If your businesses’ locks are old and need proper maintenance or corrective repair services, it’s always best to work with a team of experts. From re-keying services to fixing stuck or broken locks, our commercial locksmiths are only a phone call away.

A commercial-grade CCTV system installed by Arrowhead Lock & Safe allows you to monitor all activities that take place under your businesses’ roof.

With a commercial-grade control access system from Arrowhead Lock & Safe, business owners can easily restrict certain areas within their store, prevent physical key duplication, record entry history, and even simplify employee turnover.
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:
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.
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.
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.
A famous animator and movie director once said: “The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.” This quote rings especially true when it comes to protecting your home or business with the best security solutions in Georgia.

ACWORTH, Ga. - Tranquil Gardens Assisted Living Facility's staff, residents, and their family members are in disbelief after learning the facility will be permanently closing its doors at the end of the week.
Staff and residents tell FOX 5 they were given a "verbal eviction notice" on Tuesday. They were told the property was being foreclosed on.
"I never thought these people would do this to these residents. There is no name for what they've done to us. Uprooting my mom at 99," said Nellie Garcia.
Jon Fisher is a resident who has been at the facility for about two months. His family was able to find him a new assisted living facility nearby to move into.
Fisher said he was initially angry when he heard the news.
"I can't believe they did not know about this before this week," he said.
Will Riggs said he just moved his father into the facility a couple of months ago. He said he's received no communication from the owners.
"No one is trying to get our money back. We've just put in about $3,500 in this place in the last two months. There's no notice of what's going on," Riggs said.
He said his father will need to undergo medical evaluations before being admitted into a new facility and they are unable to get that done by the end of the week.
Ken Byers's mother was one of the first residents at the facility when it opened its doors.
The 87-year-old recently had surgery and is a part of the memory care program.
"Mom's been here two and half years and tonight will be her last," Byer said.
He, along with other family members, are now scrambling to find their loved ones a new place to stay.
"Janice and Brian Steward, the owners of this property. They've failed us in a big way," Byer said.
Not only are residents and families unsure of the future., so are the staff members, like executive director Tiffany Echols.
"It's so inhumane. How do you do your elderly that way? How do you do your staff that way?" Echols asked.
She was emotional as she recalled her time at the facility. She said her biggest concern is making sure all of the residents have a place they can go when Friday comes.
She's now trying to figure out how to say goodbye to a place filled with people she's called family for the last two and half years.
"I have my staff here that will stick it out with me until Friday. We don't know if we'll get paid but we're going to stick it out for the love of our residents," Echols said.
She said the owners stopped by briefly on Tuesday.
Because some staff members left after getting the news, staff from nearby assisted living facilities are showing up to help with things like food, care, and finding residents new places to stay.
FOX 5 did reach out to the owners but did not head back.

Georgia doesn't have as many pumpkin patches as other states, but there are still plenty of places to buy them.ACWORTH, GA — It's the time of year to think about picking up a pumpkin or two near Acworth, whether your search for the best takes you to patches and fields or your local grocery store.In some areas, however, experts fear that heavy summer rains could have increased the likelihood of a blight that affects many vegetables including pumpkins, dampening the outlook for the pumpkin crop this fall.Georgia ra...
ACWORTH, GA — It's the time of year to think about picking up a pumpkin or two near Acworth, whether your search for the best takes you to patches and fields or your local grocery store.
In some areas, however, experts fear that heavy summer rains could have increased the likelihood of a blight that affects many vegetables including pumpkins, dampening the outlook for the pumpkin crop this fall.
Georgia ranks 46th in the United States for the number of pumpkin acres harvested, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture census. About 74 acres were harvested in 2017, which is the most recent complete data from the USDA.
The USDA says six states — Illinois, California, Indiana, Michigan, Virginia and Texas — are responsible for 40 percent of pumpkin acres harvested. Together, they average between 4,700 and 5,600 acres of pumpkins a year, according to the USDA.
More recently, Illinois tops the list of pumpkin-producing states, harvesting about 10,900 acres in 2019. The other states among the top six have all averaged between 4,700 and 5,600 acres per year.
Four other states — Wisconsin, Ohio, New York and Pennsylvania — account for another 20 percent of the pumpkins harvested in the country, meaning the top 10 pumpkin-producing states provide more than 60 percent of the country's pumpkin output.
Phytophthora blight is a fungus that showed up earlier than usual in the states that produce the most pumpkins, Mohammad Babadoost, a professor of plant pathology at the University of Illinois, told Harvest Public Media in July.
Heavy rains in late June and early July caused the fungus to show up earlier than anticipated in Morton, Illinois, a village that produces more than 90 percent of the world's canned pumpkin.
"After the middle of August, or close to the end of the season in September or so, it's not so bad," Babadoost said. "But this year, in the first week of July, is too much."
It's not yet known whether the fungus will lower the numbers of pumpkins produced in 2021. But Babadoost told Patch in an email statement he is "still observing some Phytophthora infection on pumpkins and other cucurbits (gourd plants)."

ACWORTH, Ga. - The families of 27 elderly residents are furious after they were told they must leave their assisted living facility with about 72 hours' notice. Tranquil Gardens senior care facility in Acworth told them they had to be out by noon Friday, leaving their loved ones scrambling.
"It’s just horrible," said Vanessa Johnson, whose mother and brother lived at the facility up until Friday morning.
As her mother sat in her wheelchair in the scorching hot parking lot of the facility as they were moving out, she began crying. Her former caretaker tried to comfort her.
"She’s terrified right now and this is so unnecessary and this is so abusive," Johnson said. "They said that everybody was being evicted and that the staff is not going to get paid and we just have to leave."
Tiffany Echols, the now-former executive director of the facility, said the whole staff – even she – was blindsided by the news.
"I’ve grown to love the residents, I’ve come to love the families. It’s heartbreaking," Echols said. "We want to know where our paychecks are, we want to know why you put our residents on the street."
While Echols blames the owners, the owners said economic factors forced them to close.
"Unfortunately, we have been faced with several unforeseen challenges that in the end proved to be catastrophic. A yearlong shut down
due to Covid was something that we were unable to recover from as a new business," said Janice Stewart, the owner of the property, in a statement emailed to Fox 5. We know that emotions are high when family is involved, and we hope that in time people will be able to see past the false allegations being made and know that we are truly devastated to close our doors and say goodbye to all of our residents."
Echols, who said she helped manage the facility’s finances, does not buy it.
"They just accepted all of these people's rent money so how are you going under?" she said. "Nobody here is ever late with the rent, these residents pay their rent on time every month because I received the rent checks."
Echols said she was escorted from the property Friday morning by law enforcement.
Mervlyn Pringle, a caretaker at the facility who immigrated from Jamaica, said she was baffled by the abrupt nature of the closure.
"I love the residents so much, and they are so nice," she said. " I am from Jamaica and this is the worst thing I’ve ever experienced in my life."
Some family members of the residents say they are considering legal action against the owners.
One staffer told Fox 5 that all 27 residents were able to move to other facilities or with family members.
