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 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.

At Arrowhead Lock & Safe, we offer many commercial door lock options from the best brands in our industry.

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.

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."

ROSWELL, Ga. — The Roswell City Council approved a $1 million expense to replace two turf fields in East Roswell Park at the Feb. 27 meeting.
The two fields, originally made of grass were replaced with 100 percent crumb rubber made of recycled cryogenically frozen tires in 2013. The turf is now past its warranty, and Recreation and Parks officials say it must be replaced.
Recreation and Parks Director Jeffrey Leatherman presented two options to update the crumb rubber, a two-layer system and a three-layer system. The options cost approximately the same amount of money.
The two-layer system consists of a sand layer topped with crumb rubber.
Leatherman recommended the three-layer system, which has sand and crumb rubber layers topped with a thin layer of “cooling technology” that can lower the ground temperature by about 25 degrees.
“I absolutely do see the proposed three layer as an improvement,” City Councilman Mike Palermo said.
Councilwoman Lee Hills said she has used fields with the cooling layer, and the difference in temperature is “shocking.”
Hills also said the council “beat the bond,” referring to the $107.6 million Recreation and Parks bond Roswell residents approved last November. Resurfacing each of the fields will cost approximately $500,000. One turf replacement is already funded in the 2023 budget. The second field will be funded by an amended budget, which will later be reimbursed with money from the bond.
The field replacements are part of a long list of updates planned for East Roswell Park. Leatherman said his department plans to overhaul all of the athletic fields, retrofit field lights, update bathroom facilities, rehabilitate golf carts and improve parking.
Leatherman said the city has put in “significant investment” to East Roswell Park before and with the bond.
“I’d like to point out this is East Roswell Park, and near and dear to my heart is getting a lot done and moving things forward over there," said City Councilman Peter Vanstrom, who serves as liaison to Economic Development.
Plans call for having the new turf installed by early June.
The council also held a first reading for an amendment to the city’s code of ethics. The proposed amendment requires councilmembers to recuse themselves from zoning votes when they have received campaign contributions from the business or individual involved in the zoning matter.
The City Council has followed the policy since last year, but the ordinance will incorporate it into law.
Councilmembers said the move helps “clarify a loophole” in the ethics code. The official ethics code states councilmembers should recuse themselves from participating in votes involving a conflict of interest, but it doesn’t list it as a requirement.
“I think this was a great step forward in just really rebuilding trust,” Councilman Palermo said. “It’s really making sure residents of Roswell know that any decision being made, its being made purely on what they see as best for the city and not just benefiting from campaign donors.”
The council unanimously moved the resolution forward to a second reading.

ROSWELL, Ga. — A family of six was already going through a hard time when life hit another snag - their car crashed into their Roswell home, nearly hitting a 1-year-old child.
The freak accident has left the family without a car, their home inhabitable, and the six residents living in a hotel.
This all started on March 22, when a tow truck driver arrived at Benjamin Paul's home to repossess their car. Paul said his family had been strapped for cash the last two years. After being surprised with back-to-back babies, he's been trying to catch up on bills after delivering their 6-week-old newborn.
However, the father of four said after being unable to pay the full balance or work out any resolution with their loan provider, a driver came to hook up the car and haul it away.
"I collected our car seats and valuables from the car and went back downstairs to work," Benjamin wrote in an online fundraiser for the family. "Seconds later, I heard a huge boom and the sounds of glass shattering."
The tow truck driver failed to secure their car, causing it to roll into the family's living room. Paul said when he got down the stairs, he saw his wife picking up his 1-year-old, who was just within inches of the crash.
Paul said the family has been staying in a hotel. When the incident happened, Paul said he was told it would take three weeks, but the issue is now tied up in litigation -- as companies try and figure out who is at fault.
"My wife and I talked at length if I should share this story because it's embarrassing for the family.. that's fine," Paul said. "I would rather humble myself and ask for help than suffer in silence."
Paul said the car knocked in the wall and the window and damaged their furniture. The family of six is now hoping the kindness of strangers - will help them get back on their feet. Those wanting to donate can do so through an online fundraiser set up by Paul.

ROSWELL, Ga. — The Roswell City Council hosted a workshop March 10 at Roswell River Landing, where the council fielded questions from two reporters in attendance.
On March 8 a city email announced the meeting was cancelled. Later that day, a city communications staffer said the meeting was back on. The published agenda for the meeting was completely blank except for the names of the mayor and City Council, the location and the scheduled time frame.
Mayor Kurt Wilson opened the three-hour meeting at 8 a.m. The City Council was in attendance, as well as Director of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Affairs Jeffrey Leatherman. Appen Media was also in attendance.
Wilson said the goal of the workshop was to “continue to follow up” after the Roswell City Council and staff retreat in Opelika, Alabama, in February. The mayor said he wants to introduce ongoing opportunities for the press to have open access to the city government.
Recreation and Parks Director Leatherman opened the discussion with an update on the implementation of the $107.6 million bond for recreation, parks, sidewalks and bicycle and pedestrian paths.
Leatherman said residents will start to see the first results of the bond in the next few months as the fields in East Roswell Park are replaced. The city is also working on “more complicated” projects with results in the next 12-18 months.

He also discussed progress on redevelopment projects for Roswell parks. Recreation and Parks staff is in the schematic design process for Don White Park, Azalea Park and Riverside Park. All redevelopments on the parks are funded by the bond. Leatherman said the design process may take up to a year.
The council said projects covered through the $52 million public safety bond and $20 million downtown parking deck bond are in progress, but details cannot be divulged because they involve real estate dealings.
“I think once we're able to finalize the details on the real estate acquisitions and the purchases themselves, that's going to bring the full picture,” Councilwoman Sarah Beeson said.
Mayor Wilson then opened the workshop to an informal Q&A session with reporters. Wilson and the councilmembers fielded questions on the bond implementation, municipal elections and the recent retreat.
Wilson said his major takeaway from the retreat was a focus on organizational behavior and institutional change to make the city “truly friendly.”
“What I want to live well beyond me and this council,” Wilson said, “is that whenever elected (officials) come in, their policy and vision can be executed with expediency as long as it’s logical, clear, ethical and moral.”
The mayor then addressed the possibility of having Roswell run its own municipal elections this fall. The council approved a motion to “work on due diligence” with its sister cities on conducting municipal elections at a meeting in January.
In the months since, Johns Creek has decided against the plan for 2023, opting to continue its contract with Fulton County to run the election.
Mayor Wilson said he agrees with Johns Creek officials and that Roswell “start a pathway to formally run elections in 2025.”
Wilson said the city’s due diligence has been influenced by the work other cities like Milton have done to gauge feasibility for running elections in their city.
“Some stuff we have clarity, others we do not,” Wilson said.
With the lack of full cooperation with sister cities and lack of understanding important components of the task, Wilson expressed concern with running elections in 2023.
“If you screw it up, you kill the opportunity to ever do it again,” he said.
Wilson said the issue must be a decision by the elected body, though, and asked some of the councilmembers where they stood on elections.
Councilman Will Morthland said “if we’re ready, I’m all for it.”
Councilman Peter Vanstrom said if somebody has the time and wants to champion the cause they should.
Councilwoman Lee Hills supported the push to have the city run its own elections for 2023.
“I don’t think it’s a rush job,” Hills said.
"That's what's happened in this city. The elected officials have been paralyzed to take action because they get clobbered in this town."- Roswell Mayor Kurt Wilson at an impromptu press briefing last Friday. pic.twitter.com/jYwuigKpfA— Appen Media (@appenmedia) March 16, 2023
Mayor Wilson said the council likely will not have another public hearing before the March 31 deadline set by Fulton County, when the city will have to reach a decision.
The workshop also included discussion about concerns with fairness and balance in press coverage.
Officials also traveled to Oxbo Road to visualize traffic calming solutions, deliberating the possibility of medians or the construction of a 10-foot multimodal path for bicyclists and pedestrians.
The entirety of the workshop was recorded and is available online.

ROSWELL, Ga. — Some business owners in Roswell want to put the brakes on a plan to shut down Canton Street to cars this summer.
City leaders plan to close a block off the street from about Elizabeth Way to Webb Street between Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day.

“We don’t feel like we want to be the guinea pigs,” Jenna Aronowitz, who owns 1920 Tavern, said. “It would be detrimental. We already have a major parking problem.”
City officials say 39 parking spaces would be lost with the closure, but point out that parking is available at the nearby Roswell City Hall.
A parking deck is planned for the area, though it’s still a couple of years away.
“If they want to do the closure of the street, they’ve got to build our deck first,” Aronowitz said.
Roswell Mayor Kurt Wilson said the summer closure is a trial run.
“We think it’s going to be great for the community, we think it’s going to be great for the businesses. Obviously, we wouldn’t do it if we thought it was going to hurt any businesses,” Wilson said.
Alison Levinson, who owns Canton Street Social, said the closure would not only make parking a hassle, it would hinder truck deliveries.
“I’m not sure how deliveries would happen here. The trucks can’t park in the middle of Highway 9,” she said, referring to the highway that parallels Canton Street. “It could be a good idea, with the proper planning, but I think it was on a super-fast track that was too fast for the restaurants to handle.”
Tommy Williams, owner of CBD Store And More, welcomes the concept, saying his business thrives on foot traffic.
But he also worries about parking.
“I just want to make sure that our customers have the ability to park and get in and out quickly,” Williams said.
Wilson said if the trial run is successful, the closure could become permanent.
“And we think this is in the best interest of every business there, even businesses that may say we don’t like that,” Wilson said. “We want to make it more pedestrian-friendly, make it more family-friendly.”
