The Supervisory Board of DEHN SE and Helmut Pusch, CSO DEHN SE have agreed, after joint consideration, to end their cooperation. In his almost 30 years at DEHN, he has had an exceptionally positive influence on the company as a whole and on its sales department in particular. Customers, business partners, employees and shareholders perceived Mr Pusch as a representative of DEHN who was always honest and full of integrity. His outstanding professional and market knowledge, his boundless commitment in a wide variety of areas and his high quality standards have characterised him over all these years. Looking ahead, both parties have come to the conclusion that they hold different opinions on fundamental aspects - too different to continue the previously successful cooperation.

Safely earthing pipelines - with screwable earth rods from DEHN
Pipelines are the lifeline of our industrialised society. Their reliable functioning is essential for many supply and production systems. Increased bundling of transportation and energy routes increases inductive and ohmic interference on pipelines. As a result, voltage can occur on and damage pipelines. This may present a hazard to people, material assets and the environment, often resulting in high repair costs. Interference voltages can be caused, for example, by nearby high-voltage transmission lines and railway lines, but also by earth faults and lightning currents. The screwable earth rod from DEHN is the solution for safe earthing. The very low earth electrode resistances achieved with it reduce the corresponding voltages on the pipelines to a minimum. Interference voltages are safely discharged, thus protecting pipelines and people.

Telescopic air-termination rods from DEHN – quick and easy to set up, practical for transport and storage
Air-termination rods are part of an air-termination system, and thus essential elements for the external lightning protection of roof-mounted structures or buildings. Their size and dimensions depend on the building in question. The telescopic air-termination rods from DEHN are quick to install, do not take up much space when stored and are convenient to transport. The latching mechanism automatically stops the respective segment part of the air-termination rod, thus preventing it from slipping back uncontrolledly.

DEHN - Earthing kit compliant with normative specifications
The earth-termination system is the basis for safe and future-proof electrical installation. All new buildings in Germany must therefore be equipped with an earthing system in accordance with the national standard DIN 18014. Photovoltaics, heat pumps or, for instance, the infrastructure for electric mobility have an impact on the planning of new buildings as well as on refurbishments and retrofits. Consequently, protection concepts must stay abreast of the times.
The DEHN earthing kit with earth rods enables simple, standard-compliant, and future-proof protection of residential buildings with a floor area of up to 120 m2 while offering additional advantages.

hospitals and industry, as well as renewable energies.
For the energy mix of tomorrow – DEHN protects the production and transport of "green hydrogen"
Over the past few years few topics have been as intensively discussed as our energy supply. What components should our energy mix have in the future to support the further development and expansion of the various megatrends of our time? Particularly in the recent past, the topic of hydrogen has become increasingly prominent, but only a few players are currently venturing into the subject. A first coordinated initiative is the " Hydrogen Center Bavaria (H2.B) ", which links partners from industry, science and politics. DEHN has been part of the alliance since the beginning of 2023. For regardless of whether it is a matter of producing or transporting "green hydrogen", comprehensive protection against lightning strikes and surges is essential.

InnoTrans 2022: Protect railway infrastructure with DEHN
In order for rail technology to work reliably, many highly sensitive electrical and electronic systems must do so too. The continuous availability of these systems is at risk, however. Lightning strikes or electromagnetic interference fields damage or destroy conductors, control devices, modules or computer systems. Lightning currents and surges can thus quickly cause costly downtimes and disruptions. Train delays, a lot of extra hassle and extremely high costs are the consequence. Comprehensive lightning and surge protection is therefore an essential component in rendering installations and systems safer and more reliable, and thus more efficient. DEHN is presenting its comprehensive portfolio for this industry at this year's InnoTrans from 20 to 23 September in Berlin.
