Ascom for Rise
Nov 2014 07

According to research conducted by the ASCOM (traders’ association), thefts and episodes of vandalism have increased considerably over the last few years.

<<The level of insecurity  -  explains the deputy director of Ascom Bergamo, Oscar Fusini -  has increased. There have been fewer thefts at banks and post offices, but thefts in shops have increased. >>

Lombardy is the Italian region hit by the highest number of thefts, robberies and break-ins. The businesses at greatest risk are no longer petrol stations and tobacconists, but a very large number of shops with medium-low turnover, which suffer huge damages in thefts of property worth just several dozen Euro.

In order to deal with this growing problem, the company Alba Elettronic of Pedrengo, which operates in the security and  alarm systems sector, has signed an important agreement with the traders’ association to allow traders to equip their businesses with appropriate security systems: automatic bollards.

The models proposed by Alba Elettronic are the RISE bollards of the Benincà Holding group, which guarantee maximum resistance, since they are installed underground and buried in reinforced concrete, without altering their appearance.

These devices allow the area to be protected during the night and then “disappear” into the ground during normal daily activities. Due to their principal characteristics, they may also be installed by display windows and entrances without reducing the space used for access of cars and other vehicles, for example.

Unlike other devices, the bollard can resist the impact of an 18-hundredweight vehicle travelling at 55 km/h and can also be used in the various versions where an even higher level of security is required (resistance to impact up to a 25-hundredweight vehicle travelling at 65 km/h).

Another agreement was also presented as part of this project, with a company in Treviglio, a leader in the protection of shops, SecurShop, which offers the possibility of connecting their video-surveillance system with law enforcement agencies.

In this case, with just a small investment in the service, the police and Carabinieri, who monitor the shop in real time, can intervene promptly in the case of an attempted theft or break-in.

The primary purpose of  AREA ARTE project is to promote cultural initiatives in North Eastern Italy with a quarterly review focused particularly on the innovative work of young local artists.

This is an opportunity not only to promote what makes our territory unique, by supporting young artists’ projects, but also to take part in cultural events and initiatives by investing in philanthropic projects associated with the major local art schools.

It is precisely with a view to finding a new and significant way of enhancing the territory in which it is situated that BENINCA’ has chosen to sponsor the AreaArte project.

Research, innovation and tradition – these are just some of the keys to the growth of BENINCA’.

Elements which look to the future, but which are rooted in a territory known for its excellence, based on the very values which have made the Benincà brand what it is.

The artists selected for 2014 are:

Arnold Mario Dall’O

His work is often inspired by news images (drawn from the internet or newspapers) and popular or religious symbols, which he reworks technically and manually to open up a wide range of episodes.

Mattia Novello


Mattia Novello’s artistic personality was formed by the worlds of street art and photography, and he shares with them the claim of the individual to stand out from the anonymity of the modern city.

Paolo Loschi

The awareness that even the smallest incident can change our lives has become the key to Paolo Loschi’s work as an artist.

Mirta Caccaro

She uses wood cuts for much of her work, which is largely focused on telling and illustrating children’s stories drawn from folk traditions.

Hartwig Thaler

He first came into contact with the world of art at the age of twenty, when he encountered the cultural milieux of Vienna. Since then reason, instinct, stress and relaxation have characterised his work.

Martina Lollato 

A young artist from Asola, her work is characterised by on-going innovation and research, so that every piece is vibrant and vital.

Bianca Susy Piva


Her work stands out for her close contact with nature, although her porcelain figures are largely abstract. This is especially true of her spiral works, magical labyrinths which, with their geometrical form, redefine one of the motifs most pregnant with symbolic meaning to be found in the natural world.

MADE IN IUAV is an interesting and exciting project which, since its beginnings in 2001, has focused on the design, development and production of items by pooling together the energy and know-how of students, designers and enterprise.

“Made in Iuav” is a testament to the genuine collaboration between the university and the numerous players involved in the local institutional, cultural, economic and production system, which, over the years, has been the backbone for developments in design in the North East of Italy.

Based in one of the most vital and advanced areas in Europe, this integration has engendered a unique cluster of creativity.

BENINCA took part in the project from 30 June to 4 July with the aim of defining a new line of accessories to be presented at the international R+T 2015 event scheduled for 24 to 28 February 2015.

The result was a complex process which gave the company a new approach to product and design, thanks in particular skilled staff including designer Bruce Fifield.

All delivered projects were in keeping with the design brief provided by the company and feature innovative forms, new functional ideas and a strong identity.

Numerous initiatives took place during the week of creativity. One of these was the conference with Virginio Briatore on Design Empathy, which spawned even more important new insights.

The RI.6E operator that since 2007 has represented one of the best–sellers products of Benincà range.

Today this important heredity is carried forward by BULL.8OM a motor in oil bath used for sliding gates up to 800Kg.

The oil lubrication allows to reduce the mechanical wear of the components ensuring a longer life of the motor and the regular functioning of it even at low temperatures thanks to the special type of oil used.

Always speaking of use in harsh weather conditions, it should be emphasized that the BULL8.OM is available in two versions, one provided with mechanical limit switches and one provided with magnetic limit switches particularly suitable for cold and snowy environments.

 As per all the products of Benincà range, also for BULL.8OM have been made specific choices in the use of materials and processes in order to ensure high performances.

To confirm this we can see, externally, the die-cast aluminum casing and the cover made of stabilized ABS material, against UV rays to provide a better resistance to aging.The fastening screws of the carter are made of stainless steel to prevent the rust.

Carrying on we can see the metal release which guarantees better performances in the cold weather.On the inside we can notice the processed cast iron gears which guarantee high quality and reliability.

The control panel has a double protection against external agents. The first protection is guaranteed by the motor cover and an additional protection is provided by the control unit box. These two protections prevent that the control panel is damaged because of the rain, or insects.

Furthermore the encoder guarantees the anti-crushing function and a greater precision during the gate operating phases. All this translates, as you can see, into an advanced slowdown management, both in opening and closing phase.

Getting into details we can see that the control panel is provided with a LCD screen and a built in radio receiver that allows the management of two different types of encoding (ARC and HCS).

As per all the other advanced Benincà control panels, CP.BULL8OM has the AUTOSET function which simplifies the installation phases.

Other features on which I would like to dwell are the two separated photocells inputs, one for the opening phase and the other one for the closing phase, the torque adjustment and the electronic braking.

Even the CP.BULL8OM is ADVANTOUCH ready, so it is possible to manage lists of transmitters, configure parameters and logic functions and also upgrade the control panel’s software in a direct and simple way.
