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.

Go Green with Sheet Rubber
Whether you are using a rubber sheet for commercial, industrial, or residential purposes, utilizing tough and durable material is imperative for any application. At RubberCal.com, you do not have to worry about our resilient products succumbing to standard wear and tear. Our sheet rubber is not only incredibly robust—employable for home-floor renovations or construction-zone safety—but we even offer recycled or reclaimed rubber sheets to promote sustainability. At RubberCal.com, we are devoted to utilizing eco-friendly materials whenever possible to reduce our carbon footprint and play our part in creating a sustainable future. We know that manufacturing goods can sometimes affect the environment, but we attempt to combat that through our recycled and reclaimed rubber products!
Reclaimed and recycled rubber is derived from used vehicle tires or other rubber items. The old material is broken down and converted into new goods—reducing rubber waste and decreasing the amount of damage to our ecosystem. In addition, recycled and reclaimed rubber products can take quite the beating—as these items are composed of ultra-durable tires that were once designed to withstand weather, abrasions, and other detriments from the road. Ultimately, there is no reason not to invest in recycled or reclaimed rubber sheeting. Not only are you contributing to environmental safety, but you are also obtaining an extremely resilient product at an affordable price! Check our recycled rubber page for excellent slip-resistant, shock-absorbing, and durable sheet rubber.
Keep the Slip-and-Slide Out of Your Kitchens!
If you cook in a commercial kitchen or at home, you most likely know the hustle and bustle of playing with your food and working under fire. In these circumstances, it is no surprise that errant scraps and liquid might go flying—ending up on the slick surfaces of the tile floors. These floors, already filmy with grease (and your blood, sweat, and tears), are a safety hazard for all cooks involved. Anyone turning a tight corner in a restaurant can contest: you need slip-resistant chef mats in your kitchen!
Fortunately, RubberCal.com has you covered with a vast selection of traction-enhancing rubber mats to keep your feet firmly planted. You won’t have to worry about dropping a dish when your footing is assured! Mats such as our “Dura-Scraper Linear” are lineated with raised surfaces to create a textured exterior that will grip your shoes. The thick and durable mat is also shock-absorbing and relieves fatigue from standing for long periods—ideal for chefs working extensive shifts. The “Dura-Scraper Linear” is also water-resistant, meaning you can hose the rubber mat off at night's end.
We also offer the “Dura-Chef Octagon” Rubber Kitchen Mat for even more fuss-free maintenance. This product features a smattering of holes across the surface to ensure proper drainage while increasing traction. Despite the holey exterior, the reclaimed rubber mat will maintain its hold on shoe soles, promoting safety and convenient cleaning inside your kitchen. A quick splash of soapy water and a rundown with a broom will proficiently remove the day’s grime while the drainage holes provide the pooling liquid a route to escape. Return in the morning to a clean and dry workstation!
A kitchen is the birthplace of a good meal, but it can also be a recipe for disaster due to unpredictable elements such as heat and sharp objects. Protect your workers and avoid tragedy in the workplace with slip-resistant, anti-fatigue, easy-cleaning kitchen mats!
How to Protect Garage Floors

If you want to convert your garage into an at-home gym, workshop, man cave, or she-shed, our rubber or PVC flooring will instantly elevate the space while protecting your floors. A renovated garage deserves proper matting! If you are considering the cheapest alternative for your floors, paint may seem like the ideal option. However, you get what you pay for: a cover-up layer that will not shield your floor from impacts and degrades over time.
Products such as our “Diamond Plate” Roll Rubber Matting are aesthetic, durable, and functional: featuring raised diamond ridges for increased traction. Additionally, the matting is resistant to foot traffic, impacts, and moisture, making it easy to clean.

You can acquire the same materials to protect your garage floor at RubberCal.com! The “Eco-Sport 1-inch” interlocking tiles are ideal for gyms or playgrounds—anywhere you necessitate high shock absorption. These substantial rubber tiles are composed of recycled rubber sourced from used vehicle tires, lending the product its extreme resiliencies. You can rest assured that our “Eco-Sport” tiles can take a beating! The 1-inch-thick tiles come in red, black, green, or blue, allowing you to customize the look of your at-home gym.
At the end of the day, flimsy flooring just won’t cut it for your convertible garage. Whether you are working out or relaxing, the proper rubber matting will shield your floors from harm while keeping you safe. Work hard and play hard with durable garage flooring from RubberCal.com!
Why Do You Need a Rubber Runner Doormat?
Why do you need a rubber runner doormat? Compared to other products, a rubber runner doormat might seem slight in comparison. While it is not specially crafted for absorbing extreme impacts like our other, thicker mats, the primary objective of the rubber runner is to provide a slip-resistant surface for walkways, ramps, or entrances. Many of our rubber runners feature texture surfaces that provide extra surface area for your shoe soles to cling to, allowing increased traction for the user. On uneven ground like ramps, maintaining your footing is imperative. The repeating lines featured on the “Corrugated Ramp-Cleat” Rubber Runner enhance grip strength—allowing shoes, wheels, or any objects to easily maneuver across the surface without slipping. Whether you are moving heavy materials via cart or want to create a safer entryway for wheelchair users, a rubber runner securely fixed to the ground will increase safety by decreasing slip-and-fall accidents!
Our rubber runner mats are available in a wide selection of sizes and textures to accommodate any area. The “Corrugated Fine Rib” exhibits thinner lines, while the “Corrugated Wide Rib” features thicker ones. Whether you use the fine rib or the wide rub runner depends on your personal preference for traction. The numerous raised surfaces on the “Corrugated Fine Rib” offer increased grip and dirt removal over the broader valleys of the “Corrugated Wide Rib.” Ultimately, both rubber runner doormats will allot your entrances and walkways with superior traction. Keep your workers or anybody utilizing your ramps or pathways safe with durable rubber runner doormats!
