Case Study, Vehicle Parking - DOC Tongariro Taupo Conservancy

Tongariro Chateau Car Park


Car Park Background

This car park was put in 8 years ago using geocell mats and gives a good example of the potential and durability of JakMat Geocell for this application.

Construction Steps

Jakaar has commissioned a registered engineer to give his recommendation of construction for a car park application using JakMat Geocell (see below).



Load bearing tests have also been performed on the JakMat which show high weight bearing strength (see below).

Test: JakMat packed with GAP 7 aggregate and compacted by hand. A 200mm x 9mm carbons steel plate disc was loaded as follows:

  1. Loaded to3500kg/34.4KN – No Visual Change Observed.
  2. Loaded to12910kg/126.6KN – 1.55mm deflection Observed

Case Studies

Check out a number of case studies which show the different uses of Jakmat:


JakMatGeocell is a more robust version of the JakMat and can be used in car parks and utility area construction.

JakMatEnviro is used for walking tracks and environmental protection, for reinforcing ground used by walkers to reduce the physical wear and tear on popular walking tracks and also for farm environments.

JakMatDairy provides a solution to race problem areas on farms caused by high stock traffic.
