11. Deutscher Gefahrstoffschutzpreis

Innovative solutions for dust protecting

The prize is awarded every two years by the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs (BMAS) and is organised by the Bundesanstalt für Arbeitsschutz und Arbeitsmedizin (BAuA). The award ceremony took place on October 25, 2016 at an event to mark the signing of a joint declaration of the "Aktionsprogramms Staub" at the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs (BMAS) in Berlin.

The prevention of dust formation during work in the construction industry was the subject of the 11th Deutschen Gefahrstoffschutzpreis, and innovative solutions for protection against dust were sought and awarded. In the category "low-dust techniques", DUSS won the prize awarded by Ministerial Director Maria Britta Loskamp for its extraction systems for dust protection during drilling, chiselling and diamond core drilling work.

Dust-free technologies


In addition to the DUSS ASG suction cups and the extraction system for dry diamond drilling, the MASH and MASP dust extraction systems for chiselling and demolition work were particularly highlighted when the prize was awarded to DUSS. In conjunction with a connected industrial vacuum cleaner, these systems extract the dust directly at the point of origin. Thanks to the practical length adjustment, the distance from the extraction opening to the working surface can be optimally adjusted. An extremely high degree of efficiency is thus ensured even when chisels of different lengths are used. The extraction unit is easy to install and offers perfect handling. The dust extraction can be used for all DUSS breakers and demolition hammers as well as combi hammers from the 4 kg class upwards and have been classified as a low-dust system by BG Bau since 2015.

DUSS extraction systems for over 50 years

DUSS has been a pioneer in the field of reducing dust emissions on construction sites for over 50 years. As early as 1964, the first rotary hammer with integrated dust extraction and dust extraction drill bit was launched on the market. Today DUSS offers a wide range of extraction systems for all drilling, chiselling and diamond core drilling work. Numerous developments, such as DUSS dust extraction drill bits and suction cups, have become industry standards, not least because of their user-friendliness.
