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 Mountain Park 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.

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.

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."

Arctic arives tonight driving temps into the teens and windchills below Zero. The deep freeze remains for the Christmas Holiday Weekend. Here is the latest.
ATLANTA - State officials are warning Georgians to take precautions against the high winds and freezing cold temperatures from an approaching Arctic blast.
At a press conference Wednesday, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp declared a state of emergency ahead of the storm, saying that officials most fear power outages caused by wind, which could cut off heating to homes and health care facilities. Officials warn wind could also delay reconnecting power.
"It may be very hard to get the crews to fix a downed power outage until it’s safe to do so," Kemp said.
The declaration allows for supplies, particularly propane, to be delivered for residential and commercial needs. The executive order was signed on Wednesday and covers the entire state through midnight on Monday.
The National Weather Service is calling it a "once-in-a-generation" storm with Georgia seeing some of the coldest air the state has experienced in five years just in time for Christmas. Expect a 30-degree fall in less than five hours.
Officials said the north Georgia mountains could see snow on Thursday and that rain farther south could freeze on roads. Temperatures are forecast to fall below freezing on Thursday and not rise above freezing until Monday in much of Georgia’s northern half.
"If you see a roadway that looks wet on Friday, assume that it’s frozen," Georgia Transportation Commissioner Russell McMurry said at a news conference.
The Georgia Department of Transportation is trying to get ahead of the winter storm by pretreating roads, bridges and interstates. Roads could freeze overnight making them slick and dangerous.
Georgia Department of Transportation workers in brine trucks are already on the move, treating 21,000 miles of state roads, interstates, and bridges to try and reduce the possibility of black ice. Local roads may not be treated, so drivers should take caution.
GDOT will also close several metro Atlanta express lanes Thursday night including the Interstate 75 south metro lanes in Henry County and the I-85 express lanes through Gwinnett.
The arctic blast has also affected travelers expecting to take to the skies for the holidays. As of 10 p.m. Thursday, more than 100 flights have been canceled at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
It was a day of cancelations and delays at our nation's airports in including at Hartfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport with more expected over the next few days. It comes during a massive winter storm and many travelers would agree, it couldn't come at a worse time as people head out for the holidays.
Airport officials say they have been getting ready for any impacts and have been meeting over the past two days to prepare for the storm.
"We had a winter weather meeting just a short time ago, we had one two days ago as well. So, we're looking and working with our forecasters, and we're working with our partners to make sure that we are prepared," said Andrew Gobeil, a Hartsfield-Jackson Airport spokesman.
State officials will open warming centers at 18 state parks. Many local governments are also opening warming centers.
The University of Georgia has closed all its campuses on Friday. Stone Mountain Park has suspended all activities, rides, and events. However, there are not many closures and cancelations as many schools have off Friday ahead of the holidays.
James Stallings, director of the Georgia Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency, urged people to make preparations to survive for 72 hours without power. He urged people to wrap outdoor pipes, leave indoor faucets dripping and open cabinets under sinks to warm pipes. He also warned people not to use grills, camp stoves or generators indoors, to avoid carbon monoxide poisoning.
Stallings asked people traveling away from home during Christmas to make sure neighbors could access their homes in case pipes burst.
The City of Brookhaven has a plethora of tips to help you get through this frigid weather. The list was prepared by Emergency Management Supervisor Sergeant Matthew Murray:

The closure of Disney’s Splash Mountain is inevitable. The attraction has three days left on its lifespan, and many Disney park guests are still in the grieving process. Although many commend Disney for wanting to tell a new story, update a decades-old attraction, and utilize a wider range of characters, there are arguably more that want to preserve Br’er Rabbit and his friends from the briar patch.
What many fans seem to forget is that Br’er Rabbit, Uncle Remus, and all the rest of the characters featured in the infamous Song of the South existed for decades, almost a century, before Walt Disney got his hands on them. The stories published by Joel Chandler Harris have been a huge part of American folklore long before the invention of animation. Disney just gave them a vessel on which they became better known in the public eye.
An argument can be made that the characters are better associated with the theme park attraction than they are with any controversial film, meaning that they could run the risk of falling into obscurity after the ride’s re-theming. However, there is one vocal historian adamantly in defense of preserving the characters, the stories, and Splash Mountain altogether.
— Showcase of Wishes (@ShowcaseWishes) January 19, 2023
@ShowcaseWishes recently replied to Disney’s Tweet announcing their Black History Month plans with a video from Ms. Georgia, a storyteller and historian at the Uncle Remus Museum in Eatonton, Georgia, sharing her thoughts on Splash Mountain’s closure. The storyteller shares her traditions and connection to the Uncle Remus stories, and how they were written in preservation of black history and heritage. What really strikes a chord is what Ms. Georgia ends her final statement before the video ends “This is our history and I don’t want to see it erased.”
When seen right above Disney Parks’ announcement of their Black History Month Events, Disney is definitely being called out for their literal erasure of what they are trying to celebrate and promote. The ride needs to be updated, that’s an undeniable fact. It’s in a state of decay and it needs a total reconstruction. However, Br’er Rabbit, Br’er Fox, and Br’er Bear shouldn’t be thrown out of the Disney Parks in one fell swoop. If they can’t find a new home in Tiana’s attraction, they would make excellent additions to the Uncle Remus Museum where they can be better preserved and displayed for future generations.
