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 Johns Creek 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. With a wide range of security offerings and a reliable team of commercial locksmith experts on your side, choosing the right security setup is easy, efficient, and affordable.
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. From reliable maintenance service on your current Grade 3 locks to new Grade 1 commercial door lock installation, our team of commercial locksmiths is ready to help.
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.
Commercial alarms for businesses are more complex than their residential relatives, and for a good reason. Our cutting-edge alarm systems are great for preventing and interrupting break-ins, notifying the authorities, and act as an important addition to any business that wants enhanced security.
A commercial-grade CCTV system installed by Arrowhead Lock & Safe allows you to monitor all activities that take place under your businesses’ roof. Having security cameras installed around your business gives you added peace of mind and evidence for the police if a break-in occurs. Having visible security cameras can also help deter criminals and prevent suspicious activity from ever taking place.

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.

JOHNS CREEK, GA — As coronavirus cases and hospitalizations spike throughout the United States, many retailers in Johns Creek and other cities are re-implementing mask mandates to help curb the spread of coronavirus.
New mask requirements come as the highly contagious delta variant continues to sweep across the nation. The variant, which originated in India, now accounts for more than 93 percent of all new cases in the United States, according to data released Wednesday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Many retailers attribute revised mandates to the CDC's new mask guidance, which recommends all vaccinated and unvaccinated people wear masks in public indoor settings or when in areas with "substantial" or "high" transmission; however, most stop short of requiring fully vaccinated customers to wear face coverings.
The CDC defines "substantial" transmission as 50 to 99.99 cases per 100,000 people over seven days, while "high" transmission is defined as more than 100 cases per 100,000 during that span.
Here's a look at which retailers in Johns Creek now require masks and who should wear them, according to a list compiled by AARP and various news outlets:

Ware County has never won a state title. Cambridge has never a region championship. Their elusive goals came into focus Friday night in the ninth week of the Georgia high school football season.
If it weren’t already apparent, Ware County made it clear that defending champions – even Warner Robins – will have a tough time repeating this season as the Gators ended the Demons’ 15-game win streak, the state’s longest, with a 29-21 Class 5A victory.
It was Ware County’s first victory over a No. 1-ranked team from the same classification since beating Northside-Warner Robins in the 2012 semifinals, and it avenged Ware County’s 22-19 loss to Warner Robins in 2020. Ware County had been 0-3 all-time against the Demons.
Ware County moved to 6-1 overall and 2-0 in Region 1 - often considered Class 5A’s strongest - while Warner Robins is 6-1, 0-1.
All eight of 2020′s defending champions now have lost at least once.
Cambridge, a north Fulton County school that opened in 2012, won the evening’s most riveting game, a 48-47 overtime victory over Johns Creek. Zach Harris scored on a keeper for a 48-41 lead, and Brooks Morley blocked Johns Creek’s extra point to finish it.
Cambridge (6-0, 4-0) emerged as Region 7′s only unbeaten team while Johns Creek fell to 5-2, 3-1.
Otherwise, it was a relatively tame Friday. A week after a season-high 10 unranked teams beat ranked opponents, the top 10 had their revenge, going 40-1 against the unranked.
The lone upset, really a toss-up, came when Riverwood beat No. 10 Creekview 35-28 in another game in the closely contested Cambridge-Johns Creek region. Riverwood and Creekview entered with 5-1 overall and 2-1 region records.
Five other games matched ranked teams.
In Class 7A, No. 3 North Cobb beat No. 6 Walton 51-29 in Region 3. North Cobb is the region’s defending champion.
In 5A, No. 2 Cartersville beat No. 8 Blessed Trinity 49-21. Cartersville is now 8-0 and potentially the new No. 1 team if Warner Robins drops from that position in Sunday’s rankings.
In other games between ranked teams, No. 4 Bleckley County beat No. 6 Northeast 9-6 in Region 3-2A; No. 5 Eagle’s Landing Christian beat No. 7 Pacelli 41-0 in Region 4-A Private; and No. 2 Brooks County beat No. 10 Charlton County 42-7 in Region 2-A Public.

The U.S. Department of Education recently named Johns Creek Elementary a 2021 National Blue Ribbon school, recognizing leaders and staff for hard work and dedication to academic performance and closing achievement gaps for students.
Johns Creek was one of 325 schools across the nation and one of only nine schools in Georgia to receive the honor.
According to the U.S. Department of Education, the National Blue Ribbon award “affirms the hard work of educators and communities in creating safe and welcoming schools where students master challenging and engaging content.”
Now in its 39th year, the award has been given to more than 9,000 schools in the U.S.
“This year’s cohort of honorees demonstrates what is possible when committed educators and school leaders create vibrant, welcoming, and affirming school cultures where rich teaching and learning can flourish,” said Miguel Cardona, U.S. Secretary of Education.
This year, the honor means even more to school leaders who were able to continue providing students with the best education possible through the pandemic when many children took to virtual learning.
“In the face of unprecedented circumstances, you found creative ways to engage, care for, protect and teach our children,” Cardona said. “Blue Ribbon Schools have so much to offer and can serve as a model for other schools and communities so that we can truly build back better.”
According to the National Blue Ribbon website, most of Johns Creek’s students attended school virtually for the first half of the 2020-21 school year, and Principal Alyssa Degliumberto and her team worked to make sure the students felt connected while they were apart from peers and teachers.
Knowing what all educators went through in the last school year, Degliumberto was excited to see Johns Creek named as a National Blue Ribbon School.
“What an amazing honor and privilege …. We are so proud of the dedication and hard work of our students, staff and parents, and that it is being recognized on a national level,” Degliumberto said.
Johns Creek was also named as a National Blue Ribbon school in 2015, and seven other Forsyth County public schools have earned the title in previous years, including Big Creek Elementary, Brookwood Elementary, Daves Creek Elementary, Riverwatch Middle, Settles Bridge Elementary, Sharon Elementary and South Forsyth Middle.

The City of Johns Creek completed its Johns Creek CARES Business Grant program which provided more than $2.5 million in emergency fund support of Johns Creek businesses hardest hit by the significant, temporary loss of revenue caused by the pandemic.
Since the program’s inception, the city has provided grant aid to more than 500 eligible businesses amounting to more than $2,500,000 being put back into the community. Local business applicants completed forms and documentation to provide grant eligibility requirements. Program-eligible businesses received a $5,000 grant for help with payroll, rent, inventory, overhead, and a variety of other costs incurred because of coronavirus pandemic shutdowns and constraints.
A wide variety of businesses were helped by the JC CARES Grant funding including restaurants, tutoring programs, dental offices, law offices, and retail stores. The majority of the businesses which applied were in the restaurant, retail, and beauty industries, accounting for 69.7% of the applications.
“The spread of COVID-19, along with state-issued restrictions had both an immediate and lingering effect on the businesses and economy of Johns Creek,” said Mayor Mike Bodker. “The JC CARES Grant program was created with the hope of bringing some relief to several of the city’s hardest hit industries.”
Businesses were deemed eligible for the grant based on specific criteria set forth by the City Council. Businesses must have been in operation in Johns Creek prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, have a current business license with the city, currently be in operation, have under 250 employees, have a commercial business location (in-home businesses were not eligible), public interfacing, and were impacted by the Georgia Governor’s Executive Orders.
The JC CARES Grant program was approved by the Mayor and City Council in November 2020 and adopted through an Inter-governmental Agreement (IGA) with Fulton County. The IGA formalized the city’s pro rata allocation of the CARES Act funds in the amount of $3,528,706. $3,000,000 of the funding received from Fulton County was specifically allocated by City Council to assist the Johns Creek community.
These $5,000 grants provided businesses with the means to make payroll, rent, utilities, purchase supplies, and keeps their doors open a little longer,” said Bodker. “While we are optimistic about the future, we are still committed to using every available resource to its maximum potential to protect our residents and support our businesses.”
