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 Kennesaw 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.

Having the ability to control every one of your businesses’ locks is a proactive, cost-efficient way to protect your customers and your assets. 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.

Kennesaw State University’s Division of University Advancement this month earned a top statewide award following a period of unprecedented fundraising success by the Division that has contributed significantly to the rapid growth and record enrollment for the University.
The Georgia Education Advancement Council presented the Overall Institutional Excellence in Advancement Award to KSU’s Division of University Advancement at the 2021 GEAC Annual Conference, held Nov. 16-18 in Young Harris. The award is presented to institutions demonstrating outstanding achievement and commitment to the field of higher education advancement.
“In just two years, we have made tremendous strides in our mission of supporting our University and its students. We have doubled our endowment to $100 million, which is breathtaking,” said Vice President for University Advancement Lance Burchett. “This recognition from GEAC is one that we all share. It would not have been possible without the partnership of our incredible donors, Trustees and talented staff.”
Since 2019, the Kennesaw State University Foundation has seen total fundraising from private sources skyrocket to more than $60 million, more than tripling any other two-year period in KSU history.

Some fundraising highlights for Kennesaw State include:
“This is only the beginning,” Burchett said. “The future is bright at Kennesaw State University, and we are eager to see how the coming years will add to the institution’s rapidly growing success.”

KENNESAW, Ga - A community is rallying around a Georgia senior citizen. Benny Walker lost his home this week when the owner decided to sell the house. Now his community is making sure he has a roof over his head.
Over the years, Benny Walker has made many friends and touched many hearts while standing at the front of Publix and Kroger in Kennesaw.
"He's a fixture of the community. He speaks to everyone, he prays with them, he has something nice to say to everyone," said Tom Cavanaugh, who said he first met Benny about a decade ago.
For 20 years or so Benny Walker has stood at the front of the local grocery stores to pass the time. He said this is where he comes to connect with people.
"I made a lot of good friends, people, talk to me about different things," said Benny.
"When we were going through some medical issues with our family. He would stop us and pray with us," said Cavanaugh.
Last week, it was Benny who needed help. The house where Benny had rented a room for years was being sold. Soon he would have no place to live.
"Benny was put out two days before Thanksgiving and we just couldn't have that happen," said Cavanaugh.
As a senior citizen on a fixed income, finding a place to live on short, notice just before Thanksgiving, was tricky. Cavanaugh couldn't stand the thought of Benny without a roof over his head. He spread the word of Benny's predicament to friends and neighbors. In less than two days more than $5,000 was raised through this GoFundMe account.
"If we can find Benny the right long-term solution that money will go to help him get settled into a new forever home," said Cavanaugh.
"I felt like crying, I didn't know friends would come do this!" said Benny.
Cavanaugh and others contacted more than a dozen organizations to get help for Benny. They'd like to get him in a senior living facility, but some of the waitlists are up to two years. They've put Benny up in a hotel until a permanent place is found.

KENNESAW, Ga. – The Kennesaw State lacrosse program filled out its coaching staff this week as Keith Detelj will be joining the Owls as an assistant coach, KSU head coach Laura Maness announced on Wednesday. Detelj brings a wealth of experience to the Owls, most recently having spent the past five years as head coach at SUNY New Paltz. At KSU, he will work with coaching the goalkeepers and assist with the offense.
"We are so excited to add Keith to our coaching staff," said Maness. "Adding a current head coach onto our staff will truly elevate the program to new levels. He has vast experience in coaching and will bring great ideas to further develop our program on the field. He is an experienced recruiter and will assist in bringing future Owls for years to come. We are expecting our program to reach new heights this year and I believe Keith's vision, energy, and talent will help us achieve our team goals."
In his five years at SUNY New Paltz, he oversaw all aspects for the Hawks and guided them to the first winning record in program history at 5-3 this past spring. The team also had a program-best five all-conference selections this past season, and a total of nine during his five seasons.
Detelj was also the head women's lacrosse coach at Nassau Community College in 2014-15, and led the team to a NJCAA Division III Final Four appearance as well as a regional championship title. He was also the 2015 District Coach of the Year and had seven players named all-region. From 2012-14, he served as assistant coach for the program. He also spent one season as the top assistant coach for Marist men's soccer for the 2016 season.
Detelj was a dual-sport athlete at Marist, as he was a three-time First Team All-MAAC selection as well as the 2005 MAAC Tournament MVP for the men's lacrosse squad. He also set the Marist College Division I record for most career points (89) and goals (36) for the men's soccer team. During his four years on the team, he was All-MAAC three times, two-time MAAC Tournament MVP, as well as second-team all-region in 2004 and 2005. He played one year in the USL with the Dayton Dutch Lions, and spent three years in the USL Premier Development League with the Long Island Rough Riders, the Westchester Flames and the Fort Wayne Fever. Detelj graduated from Marist in May of 2007 with a bachelor's degree in biology.
