Establish 1994Founded in 1994, Rubber-Cal is a distributor of industrial rubber products. The company brings to market and inventories a wide range of rubber mats, rubber flooring, sheet rubber, flexible ducting, coir doormats, pavement maintenance parts and other specialty rubber products. Our large inventory and 24-hour fulfillment of stocked products makes us a great partner to agile OEMs and retailers by reducing their need to inventory parts and raw materials. Most of our rubber goods can be purchased in small custom-cut lengths, decreasing both the cost and time of installation and onsite fabrication.
Eco-Conscious ProductsIngrained in our basic philosophy is the mission to offer “Green” products, whenever possible, to industry and consumers alike. Natural, reclaimed and recycled rubbers are not only a practical substitute but also a far more affordable option. Firstly, by using eco-friendly materials like natural and recycled rubber we help to reduce the presence of non-biodegradable rubber waste in the ecosystem. In the US, there are approximately 245 million tires discarded annually. Our products help reduce the presence of these tires in dumpsites. Secondly, consumers directly benefit from recycled rubber products because they are more affordable than their synthetic counterparts. This has been a distinguishing hallmark that has served Rubber-Cal well over the years. In fact, it is a point of pride for us. Products using eco-friendly recycled rubber, such as our interlocking rubber floor tiles, are very popular with consumers because they offer superior protection and durability at a competitive price.

The Best Anti-Fatigue Mats – The key to easing joint strain!
If you are on your feet for long periods of time, fatigue is going to kick in. No matter how fit or strong you are, prolonged standing can leave you tired and uncomfortable. But this is where anti-fatigue mats can be especially useful. The best anti-fatigue mats can have a significant impact on the body, easing the strain of standing and allowing people to remain on their feet for longer. Whether you are working on a project and standing for long hours in your workshop, working on an assembly line or behind a checkout, or even as a chef on a long shift, the best anti-fatigue mats can have serious benefits.
When you stand for long periods of time, it affects your body in several different ways. Your feet will hurt from the pressure being put on them, while your knee and ankle joints will feel the strain too. It can also affect your muscles, causing stress and tension, especially in the legs and lower back. The muscle pain in particular is caused by a lack of blood flow when you are standing still. All of these factors lead to feelings of pain and tiredness. The best anti-fatigue mats can counteract these effects, working in several different ways.
Most anti-fatigue flooring products will have a padded surface, such as Rubber-Cal’s Comfort Cloud mats, which provide incredible cushioning. Other examples of outstanding anti-fatigue mats include our Bubble-Top mats, which feature air pockets on their surface. Other design features of the best anti-fatigue mats include having a high-density surface to prove extra body support. Some anti-fatigue mats are even designed to force your legs into frequent small movements – enough to keep the blood flowing and keep muscle fatigue at bay. All of the best anti-fatigue mats are made from rubber, due to its natural pliability providing plenty of buoyancy and a comfortable feel.
What to do with a Concrete Floor? – Why Rubber is your Best Option
Many homes will feature concrete floors. You are most likely to find concrete surfaces in basements and garages, but a lot of main floors in houses also have concrete sub-floors. In the case of brand new homes being sold to their first owners, these concrete floors may even be left exposed to allow buyers to add their own chosen finishes. No matter where in a home it is, leaving an exposed concrete floor is a bad option. While appearing to be solid, these surfaces can be prone to damage from impacts, are rigid and uncomfortable, provide little in the way of insulation and can even be susceptible to moisture permeation.
Fortunately, you have some great options to transform a concrete floor into a far more functional surface. When you are trying to decide what to do with a concrete floor, you have to ask yourself what kind of material you prefer. Wood, tile and carpet are all options, but the most suitable material is rubber. Whether you are planning to turn your basement or garage into an additional bedroom, a home gym or just a storage space, rubber offers the most advantages when laid over a concrete floor.
When you are looking at the deficiencies of concrete, you should consider that it is cold, can be slippery when wet, susceptible to water damage and surprisingly fragile. A quality rubber surface tackles all of these problems. Rubber is a great insulator, has a high level of grip and is extremely comfortable to walk on. It is also easy to clean and maintain. Better yet – especially in areas such as basements and garages – it is non-porous and is not damaged by water. Rubber can also provide excellent shock absorbing qualities and protect the integrity of your sub-floors. When you are trying to decide what to do with a concrete floor, covering it with quality rubber flooring is the best answer.
Why Build a Home Gym? – Create a custom workout setup with rubber flooring!
There are many reasons for you to leave the gym behind and put together your own customized home fitness setup instead. Firstly, there is the cost to consider. The prices of high-quality fitness machines are coming down all the time. So instead of throwing away your monthly fees you can invest in your own gear. Having your own home gym is also much more comfortable. You don’t have to worry about whether the machines were wiped down by the last user, or fear judgement from gym regulars. Why make do with a loud and smelly commercial gym when you can build a home gym and enjoy a comfortable and private workout?
Another consideration when you are wondering whether to build a home gym is time. For those people without a good gym on their doorstep, it can be a struggle to find the time to seek one out. Commercial gyms can also be very crowded, especially at peak times, leaving you waiting in line just to use the machine you want. When you are in your own home gym, that is never an issue. You also have complete control and can tailor the environment to your tastes. You only have to choose the equipment you want without having to waste money on machines you won’t use. You can also choose the entertainment, from music to viewing, to make your workout a little easier and help take the edge off the hard grind.
While it might have been difficult to put together effective home gym setups in the past, that is no longer the case. With our rubber flooring you can create the perfect workout setting. It is affordable and can help you hit peak performance, offering high levels of traction and comfort. Rubber flooring can also make sure your workout does not cause any lasting damage to your existing surfaces with heavy weights and equipment. There is no reason not to build your own home gym!
