Security business launches backed by four Secured by Design member companies

Four Secured by Design (SBD) member companies are supporting a security business launched this month (January) by a security expert who has advised at the highest levels including the Royal Household, British Security Services and the Cabinet Office.

London-based ATAJ Secure Limited is the brainchild of Tom A Jenkins, Principal Consultant and Director, whose security credentials also include being a speaker and trainer for the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI) and the National Counter Terrorism Security Office (NaCTSO). In addition, Tom, has provided training to the Military Police and the Civil Nuclear Constabulary.

SBD member company ATAJ Secure is seeking to provide security solutions including project management, consultancy and physical security specification from concept and design through to installation and completion – even if the project has started already. The business is aimed at Government, public sector bodies and major corporate organisations.

Tom has established a partnership network with ten leading security product manufacturers around the UK, which together, provide a wide range of security products from high security doors, windows and locks that help protect households and businesses through to physical security barriers to deter organised criminals and marauding terrorist attacks.

Four of these manufacturers are established SBD member companies – Martec Engineering, Sunray Engineering, Selectaglaze Ltd and Tindall Engineering, which integrates MICO High Security Locking Solutions within its products.

Martec Engineering Group

Founded in 1985, Martec Engineering is a highly innovative company providing design, manufacture, installation and maintenance of bespoke steel windows, security doors, and fire rated steel products. 

The company has long established trading relationships with many of the UK’s major main contractors and local authorities.

Sunray Engineering Ltd

Sunray Engineering is a fully ISO and LPCB certified company that designs, manufactures, supplies and installs steel commercial doors, fire doors, security doors, industrial doors and steel louvre systems. 

The company has been helping to protect the critical national infrastructure together with commercial and industrial premises throughout the UK for more than 40 years.


Royal Warrant Holder, Selectaglaze, founded in 1966, is a UK designer of high quality secondary glazing systems. Products are designed and fully tested to provide effective noise, thermal and draught insulation as well as enhanced security. 

The security secondary glazing range offers certified protection against blast, physical or ballistic attack.

Tindall Engineering Ltd

Tindall Engineering are designers and manufacturers of high security locking systems for physical attack, blast, ballistic and fire performance applications. 

The company integrates MICO High Security Locking Solutions within its products. MICO is specified on a wide range of applications from schools and nationwide retail stores requiring panic hardware through to critical national infrastructure facilities demanding high level security protection. 

Tom, who used to work for ASSA ABLOY Group – an SBD member company – and Bramah Security, has a long association with SBD by providing training for the UK’s network of Designing Out Crime Officers, who are based in police stations around the UK, and work with architects, developers and local authority planners to include SBD crime prevention standards and principles into new developments.

Tom explained: “By providing a single channel to ten manufacturers we are offering a vast shared knowledge of product specification, British and European standards and effective multiple security solutions to keep buildings safe without them having to look like fortresses.
“This eliminates conflict and confusion in specification and provides clarity on the interface between physical security products and electronic products and standards.”

Tom added: “It’s about providing physical security layers that mitigate against fire and theft, serious organised crime and acts of terrorism.”

ATAJ’s accreditations and memberships include LPCB-LPS 1175 listings with BRE’s Loss Prevention Certification Board, The City of London Crime Prevention Association, the Master Locksmiths Association, The Institute of Architectural Ironmongers and SBD, the official police security initiative.

Tom is a fully qualified master locksmith and has an architectural ironmongery diploma with the Guild of Architectural Ironmongers (GAI). Tom has affiliate membership with The Association of Security Consultants and The Security Institute in progress.

National SBD Manager, Kenny McHugh, said: 
“We are thrilled and delighted that ATAJ has joined Secured by Design. It’s really exciting for us that four of ATAJ’s partner manufacturing companies are long-standing members of SBD. Tom’s security credentials are exceptional and we look forward to working with him and his new business to help keep people safe and buildings secure in the years ahead.”
