Founded in 1994, Rubber-Cal is a distributor of industrial rubber products. The company provides 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.
Ingrained 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.

‘Tis the Season. Holiday Doormats Are Here!
Christmas is right around the corner! As the sleigh bells draw nearer, so do family and friends. But as you invite guests into your home, be careful! The bottoms of their shoes harbor all sorts of undesirable materials that you would certainly never invite into your home. Dirt, grime, and moisture are just a few of the contaminants that might trample your festivities.
This is why we offer our seasonal line of Christmas doormats! Our holiday doormats are the perfect intersection between decoration and functionality. From our “Santa Claus is Back!” to our “Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer” doormat, all of our holiday doormats come stenciled with tasteful Christmas designs. Of course, their beauty does not sacrifice utility. Highly effective, our Christmas doormats are bastions protecting the serenity of your home from the dark, bacterial forces of dirt and grime.
Like our other doormats, these Christmas doormats are made of 100% coir, a material harvested from the husks of coconuts. Coir is completely natural and, therefore, biodegradable—making our mats eco-friendly, as well as effective.
Winter Is Coming. Upgrade Your Snowplow!
According to the New York Post, 55% of Americans regularly experience snowfall, and 21% of Americans experience snow only during the holiday season. Since so many Americans experience snow, snowplows play a critical role in keeping walkways, driveways, and roads safe. And as Christmas approaches, so will the snow. If snow is already at your doorstep, then you can expect it to intensify. After all, winter is no joke!
For these reasons, we offer a generous selection of rubber cutting edges for snowplows. Our rubber cutting edges are made of a blend of natural and Styrene-Butadiene rubber (SBR). This combination of materials makes these cutting edges perfect for handling harsh outdoor conditions, which include ice, UV-rays, ozone, impacts, and abrasions.
These cutting edges are available in different tensile strengths, ranging from 725 to 2000 PSI. We also custom-cut snowplow edges, ensuring that—no matter the size of your snowplow—we can craft an order that precisely matches your specifications.
Icy Stairways? Rubber Step Mats Are the Answer!
As the weather gets colder, stairways become more slippery. Combined with icy conditions, outdoor stairways can become harrowingly dangerous. This is why anti-slip stair treads are a stairway essential!
During the winter months, the presence of snow drastically increases the likelihood that someone will slip and fall while traversing a staircase. Because our step mats are made from rubber, they inherently enhance traction. Furthermore, they come prefabricated with corrugated surfaces, a feature which further increases their users’ traction. Altogether, these two factors make for stair treads that maximize slip-resistance.
And in the spirit of the holiday season, decorate your stairways with artfully-designed stair treads. Our step mats feature surface designs that tastefully complement the beauty of your home’s exterior. So while you increase the safety of your outdoor stairways, you are also increasing their decorative appeal!
Upcoming Trade Shows
You are invited to visit us at our upcoming trade-shows in 2023. We love going to trade shows because these events are great opportunities to make ourselves known, as well as stay abreast of the latest trends in the many industries to which we cater. It is also the perfect chance for us to meet people who are interested in our products: people like you. While our digital storefront accurately represents all of our products, experiencing these products in-person can give customers a newfound perspective—unobtainable otherwise. These are also opportunities to speak with one of our experts in-person and discuss your project at length. Visit our booth at one of the upcoming trade-shows!

2023 National Hardware Show – Las Vegas, NV – Jan 31st–Feb 3rd
Rubber-Cal will exhibit at the 2023 National Hardware Show 9 (NHS) in Las Vegas, Nevada. Preeminent entities in the home-improvement, construction, and DIY sectors will be at this show to learn, educate, and collaborate: professionals attend the NHS every year to get the most up-to-date sourcing, trading, and news in their respective markets.
The NHS has a long history, rooted at the close of the Second World War in 1945. The NHS was established as an event for construction-industry professionals to network and showcase their latest wares. This event was such a success that it has been held every year since then. Now, there are countless exhibits on display on the Las Vegas Convention Center’s show-floor, highlighting innovations in building products, hardware tools, and outdoor-construction materials.
In 2023, the NHS will partner with NAHB International Builders’ Show® (IBS) and NKBA’s Kitchen & Bath Industry Show® (KBIS) at Design & Construction Week® at the Las Vegas Convention Center to offer even more buying, selling, and networking opportunities to the hardware and home-improvement communities. The NAHB IBS is the world’s largest annual residential-construction show and is a must-attend event for professionals in the building industry. IBS is produced by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), which represents over 140,000 members and is the voice for policies that prioritize housing.
This upcoming National Hardware Show will be held at the Las Vegas Convention Center from January 31st to February 3rd. Rubber-Cal encourages you to visit us at booth SL5105. For free passes into the show, please contact our sales staff prior to the event. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
