JakMat Case Studies

Environmental and geotechnical ground stabilization matting for use on walking tracks, farms, parking and much more.

The following are case studies of JakMat installations:


DOC Upgrades

  • Wilkies Pool Upgrade – A rain forest region walking track with very high rainfall (7 meters plus p.a.) and medium to heavy walking traffic.
  • Bay of Islands – Minimising visitor impact and protecting features with a mat that can be uplifted at a later date leaving the area intact and undamaged.
  • Heaphy Track Upgrade – Getting away from rutting and water damage, Heaphy track upgrade on walking and mountain bike access
  • Mangorei Track – A rain forest walking track, used by day trippers, extended stay walkers and hunters, where mud reduction on track was a prime aim
  • Tongariro Alpine Crossing – Alpine region walking track experiencing very high use (80,000 + persons p.a.) and where fragile soils prevail.
  • Grey's Scenic Reserve - Track upgrade to enhance short walk experience within a tall stand, and to provide the opportunity of enjoyment to as wide a proportion of the general public, in particular the disabled and wheel chair and stroller users.”

Vehicle Parking

  • Bellevue Park Tauranga City Council – A public sports park car parking extension (overflow) using a permeable surface (aggregate).
  • Ambury Park – Urban public park car park application with grass reinforcement (rye grass) used getting intermittent vehicle use
