Educate and Deliver Value to our Clientele

Bring to Market “Living Brands” That Evolve with our Client’s Changing Demands
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.

Playground Surfaces for Safety
Every year, millions of children visit emergency rooms for accidents that occur on playgrounds. Most of these accidents are caused by slipping or falling. One of the main problems with most playgrounds is that they lack the proper safety measures to minimize the damage caused by a slip or fall, which is why so many children visit hospitals after having slipped or fallen at a playground.
There is no good reason that justifies a lack of quality playground-surfacing. Every path leads to one answer: the best way to combat playground safety issues is by using rubber playground-flooring. Even playgrounds for homes or small facilities need quality surfacing, even though these playgrounds tend to be relatively small. The hazards that plague commercial playgrounds affect smaller playgrounds too.
Our playground surfaces are largely made of recycled rubber, which helps minimize their costs, as well as reduce the creation of unnecessary waste. These surfaces come as tiles, which is especially useful if you need to install playground flooring yourself. Plus, other options—like poured rubber or like mulch—are incredibly expensive, requiring a team of professionals, a slew of construction machinery, and a ton of material. Rubber tiles for playground surfacing are an affordable and effective option for outfitting any playground with the degree of safety that children should have.
Gym Rubber Flooring
You’re weightlifting in your newly furbished home-gym, and suddenly, the weight drops. There’s now a nasty dent in your home’s subflooring, and the weight itself has chipped. Ouch!
This scenario is all too common. And it’s made more tragic by how easily avoidable it is. Rubber flooring is the clear answer for protecting your building’s subflooring from heavy gym-equipment. Rubber naturally possesses all the qualities ideal for protecting precious floors: rubber is impact-absorbent, abrasion-resistant, and water-resistant—just to name a few.
We offer flooring as rolls of rubber and as interlocking tiles. Each style of flooring offers unique, practical advantages that are worthy of consideration. Rolls of rubber flooring offer a more seamless look. Your gym’s floors will be covered by long, continuous lengths of rubber. Whereas, interlocking tiles—when used to cover large areas—show many more seams. The nice thing about tiles, though, is that they are easily transportable. After installing interlocking tiles, you can quickly take them apart to move or store them if you need to. On the other hand, rolled rubber flooring is not as easy to uninstall and relocate. But, it does tend to be the more cost-effective, as well as aesthetically pleasing option. The options you have for gym flooring are manyfold—they are opportunities for you to build the gym of your dreams!
Garage Flooring Done Right
If there’s any place in your home that needs rubber flooring, it’s your garage. Garages are the places where home gyms are housed, workshops are stationed, and other media-type rooms are constructed. Thus, many homeowners outfit their garages’ floors with a layer of rubber which, among other things, protects their homes’ floors from myriad potential damages.
While rubber is one of the best materials for many of the applications for which garage-owners require new flooring, other elastomers—such as PVC—offer some advantages with which rubber flooring finds difficulty competing. For example, PVC has a harder, more rigid texture. While this may not be desirable to all applications in the garage, it is a trait that—when needed—is indispensable. PVC also tends to be more inexpensive than rubber. Of course, price is incredibly important. But it shouldn’t solely determine your choice. Price is just one factor in a network of variables that influence the type of flooring you ultimately purchase.
Get the most out of your garage. But make sure to take precautions to protect its subfloors!
Silicone Can Handle the Heat
Of all the types of rubbers, silicone is one of the best for resisting extreme temperatures. While it exhibits many of the properties that other rubber compounds share, silicone’s main advantage is its wide temperature-range: generally, it can withstand temperatures approximately ranging between –100 and +450 degrees Fahrenheit!
Silicone, as a type of rubber, is also abrasion-resistant, impact-absorbent, and water-resistant. Furthermore, it is flexible, as well as highly durable. Combined with its impressive temperature-resistance, silicone is clearly great for commercial and industrial applications which demand an elastomer that can withstand intense temperatures, as well as other hostile physical conditions.
Of course, every application is unique. Your project may require commercial-grade silicone with a very particular, non-standard length, width, and thickness. These are requirements we will happily accommodate. We’ll customize your order to precisely match your needs!
