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. But when it comes to protecting your home and your business, cheap locks and part-time contractors just won't cut it. Arrowhead Lock & Safe stands out as the most trusted name in security solutions and products in Georgia in an industry known for poor service and mediocre locksmiths.

Though home appraisers may disagree, the value of your home isn't defined by the four walls and roofs that cover a property. The real value of your home lies within those walls where your family eats, sleeps, and plays.

When your home has lackluster locks and minimal protection, the things that you hold closest to your heart are at risk.

Your home is only as safe as the locks that you have on your doors. As your locks age or when you are the victim of a security threat, you may feel that it's time to install new locks on the doors of your home. This can be long, laborious, and complicated for the average homeowner. For that reason, many clients trust Arrowhead Lock & Safe to handle the hard work for them.

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 Roswell 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 remote monitoring capability on your smart device, you can check in on your storefront any time of the night or day, from just about any location.
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.
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 quote rings especially true when it comes to protecting your home or business with the best security solutions in Georgia.

NEW YORK, Jan. 18, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Ace Pickleball Club, is set to debut their highly anticipated franchise offering of innovative indoor pickleball facilities, featuring between eight to sixteen regulation size courts in a climate controlled environment to provide the optimal player experience including vibrant music, on court technology for live streaming and instant replay, and social and event space, in early 2023.Pickleball has experienced unprecedented growth in the last few years, most recently reported as 36.5 million peop...
NEW YORK, Jan. 18, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Ace Pickleball Club, is set to debut their highly anticipated franchise offering of innovative indoor pickleball facilities, featuring between eight to sixteen regulation size courts in a climate controlled environment to provide the optimal player experience including vibrant music, on court technology for live streaming and instant replay, and social and event space, in early 2023.
Pickleball has experienced unprecedented growth in the last few years, most recently reported as 36.5 million people having played the sport in 2022, and all signs point to the industry only heating up in the coming years. Founder and CEO Jay Diederich and Co-Founder and President Joe Sexton of Ace Pickleball Club, leaders in the franchise industry, saw a void in the space and growing demand for high quality indoor facilities that provide year-round access to players of all ages and skill levels across the country. There are approximately 10,000 facilities nationwide currently registered with the USA Pickleball Association, of which, 99% are outdoors and cannot be utilized during the winter season, inclement weather or heat. Further issues have quickly formed with local city halls and planning departments across the country, which have started to limit hours of operations or completely shut down outdoor courts located near housing due to noise complaints.
Jay Diederich, Founder and CEO, began his career in franchise operations in 2007 at GNC, and in 2012 joined Sky Zone to support both corporate and franchise development where he successfully secured 185 big box retail and flex locations – helping make Sky Zone the second fastest growing franchise in the US and one of the largest big box indoor entertainment franchises in the world.
Joe Sexton, Co-Founder and President, also began his career in franchising in 2007 in franchise support and operations, later moving to Mathnasium Learning Centers where he was Executive Director of Franchise Development. In 2015, Joe joined Sky Zone where he led domestic franchise development and since 2019, has helped launch several new franchise programs for up and coming brands, including PetWellClinic, where he led the sales of 130 franchises in less than 24 months from launch.
Together Jay Diederich and Joe Sexton have created Ace Pickleball Club, and will begin offering franchises for development across the US in February of 2023, with Roswell, GA being the first to open.
Investments are pouring into "Eatertainment" concepts featuring pickleball as a way to drive more foot traffic to the primary focus of food and beverage sales, but there is not yet a national brand that is focused on pickleball itself. Ace Pickleball Club's approach eliminates the bar and restaurant and targets existing big box stores rather than ground-up construction, significantly reducing the investment and increasing the speed of growth. APC is introducing a family-friendly environment, more closely resembling a gym than a restaurant, for members of all ages to learn, play, and compete year-round. Members will have access to unlimited open play in addition to leagues, tournaments, clinics, glow-in-the-dark pickleball and social events.
Beyond the co-founders, the APC executive team combines 70+ years of experience across all departments and has a successful track record of developing big box recreational franchise concepts. Investors include Andy Stenzler (Founder of Rumble Boxing and Lab Capital Advisors), Doug Birer (Multi-unit Developer of Orangetheory, Kidstrong, and PetWellClinic), Eric Simon (VP at the Joint Chiropractic), Nena Mass (SVP at CBRE), Tabish Jesrai and Mohammad "Musto" Omar (Multi-unit Developers of Crumbl Cookies), Workweek Capital (The Wolf of Franchises), and Wendy Selevitch (Founder of Soultenders, Inc) to name a few. They've played influential roles in the growth of both startup and blue-chip brands on a global scale and helped earn countless accolades over the last decade. They've spent years cultivating strong relationships with the commercial real estate, construction and franchise development world, which will be leveraged to fuel the growth of Ace Pickleball Club.

Winter weather can be especially hard on home plumbing in Doraville, leading to burst pipes. The cold temperatures cause water pressure inside the pipes to increase and then freeze, eventually resulting in a crack or rupture in the pipe. If this happens, it's important to act quickly to repair the broken pipe before serious damage.
Before repairing burst pipes, you’ll need to identify the source of the problem. Shut off the water supply valve that feeds into the broken pipe, and turn on all your faucets to drain any remaining water. Next, you'll need to thaw out the frozen area using a heat lamp or hair dryer. Once the area is thawed out, you can inspect and repair the pipe using a patch kit or replacement pipe.
When sealing the repaired pipe, make sure you use a sealant designed for cold temperatures. This will ensure proper adhesion and help prevent further damage in the future. Additionally, be sure to insulate any exposed pipes to ensure that they don't freeze again. You can use pipe insulation sleeves or wrap the pipes in thick fabric.
Once your repairs are complete, turn the water back on slowly and check for leaks around seams or fittings. If you find any, simply reapply the sealant and allow it to set before turning the water back on.
Repairing burst pipes out in the cold is easier said than done.
If you’re inexperienced in pipe repairs, you might exacerbate the problem or repair it in a way that won’t last the entire winter. In such a case, contact our reliable plumbing repair technicians in Doraville, GA. They will help diagnose the problem, fix it, and prevent it from happening again.
Fortunately, there are some things you can do to prevent burst pipes.
Finally, it is important to stay informed about the weather in your area during winter months so that you can adjust the temperature in your home accordingly. If you know that there is a cold snap coming, keep your home at an appropriate temperature by using heating blankets or extra insulation around any exposed piping. Additionally, it may be wise to turn off the main water valve as a precaution if temperatures are expected to remain below freezing point for an extended period.

ANN ARBOR, MI / ACCESSWIRE / January 18, 2023 / Zomedica Corp. (NYSE American:ZOM) ("Zomedica" or the "Company"), a veterinary health company offering diagnostic and therapeutic products for companion animals, today announced a strategic restructuring of its existing development and commercialization agreements with Qorvo Biotechnologies ("Qorvo") for the Company's TRUFORMA® line of products.
"This is an exciting milestone for Zomedica as it provides us control over the development and manufacturing of our TRUFORMA products. As we build our installed base of TRUFORMA instruments, each new assay we develop and launch represents an opportunity to seamlessly integrate it into the customer's diagnostic armamentarium without incurring new customer acquisition costs. Through these agreements, we will be able to directly increase investment as appropriate to bring more assays to market faster while reducing our per assay development and manufacturing costs," commented Larry Heaton, Zomedica's Chief Executive Officer. "These strategic agreements highlight Zomedica's continuing commitment to working with industry partners in flexible ways to bring innovative products to veterinarians that provide clinical value and enhanced practice economics, to the animal health industry."
Under the agreements, Zomedica will take control of aspects of the TRUFORMA product line previously provided by Qorvo, including development of new assays and manufacturing both instruments and assay cartridges. This positions Zomedica to invest in accelerated development of new TRUFORMA assays and to improve margins once it begins manufacturing directly.
Zomedica will provide up-front licensing and certain milestone payments, including the option to extend exclusive rights for TRUFORMA in the veterinary health market in perpetuity. A related agreement provides Zomedica the right to purchase Bulk Acoustic Wave (BAW) sensors from Qorvo for inclusion in TRUFORMA products.
While Qorvo will continue to work with Zomedica to develop the TRUFORMA assays currently planned, including the first assay for the equine market and several assays for non-infectious gastrointestinal disease in the veterinary health market, Qorvo has agreed to provide technology transfer assistance so Zomedica can undertake all future new assay development for the TRUFORMA product line and to install manufacturing capabilities at the Zomedica Global Manufacturing and Distribution Center in Roswell, GA. Zomedica will have control of development, manufacturing and commercialization of the TRUFORMA product line following this transfer period. Zomedica expects the manufacturing transfer process to take up to 18 months as specialized manufacturing equipment is produced and installed at Zomedica's facility.
The TRUFORMA diagnostic platform utilizes unique BAW technology that provides highly precise and sensitive measurements at levels that other diagnostic methods utilizing optical-based technologies cannot provide. Currently, TRUFORMA in-clinic diagnostic systems provide accurate, rapid, and reliable diagnostic results to veterinarians to assist in their diagnosis and treatment of complex thyroid and adrenal conditions. It offers the first and only feline-optimized TSH assay, the only in-clinic Free-T4 (fT4) assay, the only in-clinic quantitative Cortisol assay, and the only in-clinic endogenous ACTH (eACTH) assay, all providing reference lab quality with point of care convenience.
Based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Zomedica (NYSE American: ZOM) is a veterinary health company creating products for companion animals by focusing on the unmet needs of clinical veterinarians. Zomedica's product portfolio includes innovative diagnostics and medical devices that emphasize patient health and practice health. It is Zomedica's mission to provide veterinarians the opportunity to increase productivity and grow revenue while better serving the animals in their care.
