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 Powder Springs 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.

Entryways can be especially vulnerable, but Arrowhead Lock and Safe know how to select and install the best doors for your business. When you add remote control access features, business owners can open other structures like motorized fences, large parking gates, and even barriers.
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 weekend was filled with highs and lows for the Georgia Bulldogs. Here’s your review of the news in both directions.
We now know a little more about the tragic crash that claimed the lives of Georgia football players Devin Willock and staffer Chandler LeCroy, including some of the other passengers in the vehicle. Here’s an update from Dawg Nation.
The buzz around the transfer portal continues, and the Bulldogs can now count two more players among the group leaving Athens via the portal. Linebacker Trezmen Marshall and offensive lineman Jacob Hood have both declared that they wish to transfer. You can check out all the players who are coming and going on this 2023 roster tracker.
The No. 1 ranked 2024 recruiting class got a boost over the weekend with the commitment from 4-Star safety Jaylen Heyward, whose announcement came just days after the Bulldogs landed 5-Star defensive back Peyton Woodyard.
Speaking of recruiting, the Georgia basketball team didn’t quite have the same luck as the football team this weekend. 5-Star guard Ace Bailey out of McEachern High School in Powder Springs threw his commitment to Rutgers. The Hoops Dawgs were hoping the lure the local star to Athens.
The news isn’t all bad for the basketball team, however. The Bulldogs snapped a winless road streak with a 62-58 win over Ole Miss in Oxford. The Bulldogs now boast a 13-4 overall record, going 3-1 so far in conference play. The Dawgs will now travel to Lexington to take on rival Kentucky.
The Georgia women’s tennis team concluded the Duel in the Desert over the weekend with smashing results. The Dawgs won 24 total matches – 17 singles and seven doubles – over the course of the three-day event, including six wins on the final day against Texas Tech.
Keeno Arrington, the son of Penn State Nittany Lions legend LaVar Arrington, made his commitment to play at Delaware over the weekend.
A 2022 recruit has declared for the transfer portal, although he never attended the school or played for the program. Twitter is fun! Check out this interesting back-and-forth between recruit and recruiter.

On a day where it was all lined up for Rutgers, the team came through with flying colors — and then some.
The Scarlet Knights entered Sunday with revenge on their mind as Ohio State visited Jersey Mike’s Arena for their rematch. The high-energy crowd was ready to avenge an early-season loss that should not have been when the Buckeyes hit a game-winning three at the buzzer. Even Steve Pikiell felt the intensity and was given the first technical foul of his head-coaching career. This sparked the Scarlet Knights and they were able to come away with a 68-64 victory in overtime.
“They just stay the course,” Pikiell said. “Even in the first half, in the locker room, I said I liked the looks that we got. They’re not going. But if we can’t score, they can’t score and that’s how we just continue to grind. Even getting it into vertime the way that we did. They’re really good. That was a really good basketball team. I have a ton of respect for these guys, but down the stretch, we made a few more plays than them and that was the difference.”
Rutgers had four players finish in double-figures, including Mawot Mag (15 points), who hit a game-clinching three. Cam Spencer continues to be a do-it-all player with 21 points, seven rebounds, and six assists.
Early on, it was the type of game that Rutgers wanted. It was able to muck it up a bit and use defense to prevail.
“We did a lot of good things on the defensive end of the floor,” Pikiell said. “They’re the most effeicent team offensively in the league and one of the most efficient in the country. Sueing is a really good player. Mawot and everyone that played him held him to 7 points. That was one of our keys today. It takes everybody and everybody was connected.”
Of course, following the action on the floor, the Scarlet Knights got some great news off of it.
Five-star forward Airious “Ace” Bailey announced that he has committed to Rutgers. The 6-foot-9 product in the Class of 2024 is ranked No. 6 in 247Sports Composite Rankings and No. 9 nationally according to ESPN.
Bailey, who hails from Powder Springs, GA, had offers from the likes of Kansas, Kentucky, Auburn, Texas, and Georgia. He ultimately decided to join Rutgers and be apart of what is being built.
Bailey now joins four-star guard Dellquan Warren as commits in the Class of 2024, where Rutgers has the third-ranked class to this point. Another four-star prospect Gavin Griffiths is prepared to join Rutgers next season after signing his letter of intent.

Ground has been broken on a town center multifamily residential project in Powder Springs, Ga., the first phase of a dynamic development on 6.6 acres in the heart of downtown.
The multifamily community will be within walking distance of the new Thurman Springs Park, the restaurants and shops along Marietta Street and the Silver Comet Trail. In addition, the Powder Springs Downtown Development Authority will own and develop a contiguous commercial development pad to complement the residential component of the mixed-use project.
“We are excited to be underway on our latest project with PointOne Holdings and our longtime partners Batson-Cook Development Co.,” said Novare Group President and CEO Jim Borders. “We have sincerely enjoyed working with Powder Springs to bring to life their vision and a project that residents will love and that will further enhance downtown.”
“Powder Springs could not be more excited and proud to partner with the Downtown Development Authority and the Novare Group-led partnership in creating a project that will revitalize and continue to enliven downtown,” said Mayor Al Thurman. “Novare Group has transformed communities across the country, and their project will bring a renewed focus to the downtown as the physical and symbolic heart of the community.”
“Downtown is a premier asset of Powder Springs, and we are thrilled to be a part of this team bringing this project to the city,” said Litt Glover, President and Chief Executive Officer of BCDC. “Novare Group and PointOne Holdings are among the best partners in the business.”
“We look forward to creating a new live-work residential community strategically placed in this high-quality and walkable Atlanta suburb,” PointOne Holdings Managing Partner David Lewin added. “We are thrilled to, once again, partner with the outstanding professionals at Novare Group and BCDC.”

It will include 16 studio units, 119 one-bedroom units, six one-bedroom carriage houses and 85 two-bedroom units. The sizes will range from 438 to 1,269 square feet.
The state-of-the-art apartment community will offer controlled-access buildings, a co-working lounge, private garages and a resort-style pool with a sun shelf and tanning ledge. Outdoor grilling stations, a fitness center with a yoga room and outdoor entertainment areas are also among the top-of-market amenities.
The town center development is adjacent to the city of Powder Springs future direct trail connection to the 61.5-mile Silver Comet Trail, one of Georgia’s most sought-after outdoor assets.
Novare Group is leading the project, with co-sponsors BCDC and PointeOne Holdings, which recently completed its $155-million residential development capital raise. Synovus Bank is the senior lender, Humphreys & Partners Architects is the architect and Stratus Construction is the General Contractor.
Delivery is expected in the fourth quarter of 2023.
