Outline

Main body of Geo Connect is made of ductile cast iron and is zinc plated to be excellent at antirust and durability. It works as a guide having 4 steel pipes penetrate into the ground with giving a correct angle to each pipe. Binding and holding the pipes tight to each other, it serves as a foundation which has strong resistance against withdrawal and indentation forces, and can be placed on a very weak ground (e.g. peatland). Geo Connect is particularly useful to support photo voltaic system and a larger size camp tent because of its resistance against withdrawal force (e.g. stormy wind).
