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.

Product Insight – Rubber Industrial Mats
Rubber industrial mats come in a variety of thicknesses and sizes. Generally, an industrial mat functions as a means of providing anti-fatigue comfort to workers, equipment floor protection for heavy machinery to rest on, and added padding against tough, metal equipment. For worker safety, industrial work mats with corrugated or textured surfaces are laid out as an anti-slip surface in wet areas for employees.
To discover the best kind of industrial floor covering for your needs, it is helpful to first understand the typical industrial mat thicknesses that are available.
12 mm or 1/2 inch thick rubber industrial mats is a heavy duty, durable industrial floor covering. This type of matting is perfect for use in warehouses, on construction sites, or in Laundromats and hotel laundry rooms. This industrial mat thickness can endure the weight and abrasiveness of such heavy machines during operation.
3 mm or 1/8 inch thick rubber industrial mats can come in corrugated, diamond plate, or other textured patterns. This type of industrial mat is perfect for indoor and outdoor walkways. As a 3mm runner or mat, it is easier to move around than other types of rubber applications such as rolls or tiles.
These thicknesses and more, can come as rolled matting, standalone mats, or interlocking tiles that are all fairly easy to install. Double-sided tape would usually suffice for temporary installations, but a strong adhesive such as polyurethane glue would be more suitable for permanent installations. In general, rubber industrial mats are made of durable rubber materials with a specialized hardness and thickness that will suit any of your specific warehouse, assembly line, industrial, or commercial needs.
Seasonal Insight - Traction Flooring
When choosing a flooring option, it is important to go with the safest and most reliable material for your desired space. Traditional floorings like wood, tile, concrete, and even carpet can sometimes prove themselves to be slippery and hazardous surfaces. Moisture, sweat, unstable furniture, and misplaced footing are all factors that can contribute to slips, falls, and ultimately injury—costing your health and possibly high medical bills. For the comfort of a safe and reliable non-slip surface, you want only the best traction a flooring can provide.
An efficient and affordable alternative to traditional floors would be rubber safety flooring, which comes in a wide range of varieties to fit the specific needs of your space. Rubber is the ideal flooring material because it naturally enhances traction, absorbs shock, and softens impacts. Rubber flooring is available in rolls, tiles, or individual mats, and can often be installed without adhesive. Most rubber slip-resistant floors are designed for DIY applications, allowing you to install them easily in a space of any size. Whether it is a tiled floor or rolled rubber sheeting, there is a safety flooring for every location.
One of the most popular locations for rubber traction flooring is in gyms and fitness centers. Rubber absorbs shock to ensure a reliable workout surface, cushioning against weight and lessening the intensity of impacts. For this reason rubber flooring is also common in playgrounds, pet day cares, and even on construction sites. It is great for temporary events like county fairs, or long-term applications in a grocery store or classroom. Rubber is the ultimate protective surface, resistant to abrasions, moisture, and—in many cases—weather. Because it is so easily installed and removed, rubber floors are used for temporary or permanent installations, indoors or outdoors, for virtually any application.
Application Insight – Garage Flooring
With all the garage flooring options available, it can be difficult to decide on the perfect one for your specific needs. Between vinyl and rubberized garage flooring specifically, a few things should be considered before deciding to invest in one or the other. Choosing the best garage flooring depends on what your garage will be used for. What demands will these uses be making of your garage flooring?
Traditionally, two or three-car garages are used as a space for housing cars, motorcycles, or scooters. The existing concrete flooring in this setting is strong and sturdy enough to bear the weight of these vehicles, but they are not always the ideal garage flooring that some people prefer. Rubber garage flooring can work in this setting as a durable means of protecting the existing garage floors from car damage. It provides a clean look for car garages.
Garages are also used as storage units, home gyms, craft spaces, or workshops. In these garage settings, the best garage flooring should be versatile in application but equally sturdy in use. Rubber rolls, mats, and tiles can come in various thicknesses and sizes that can fit in any kind of garage area. Vinyl floors are comfortable underfoot, but susceptible to discoloration.
No matter what you choose to use your garage for, the best garage flooring needs to be durable enough to endure everyday use. It should be able to maintain its shape and coloring, and it needs to be versatile enough to meet the needs of your entertainment room, bedroom, or home office—whatever those garage floor covering needs may be.
