Only our best quality Safety Grip aisle runner has the foam back that keeps the runner smooth and flat. The backing holds the wedding aisle runner in place very much like the way a rug pad will keep a throw rug in place on your floor. Never worry about tripping down the aisle and the runner stays flat - your dress won't pull it as you walk over it. No taping or securing is needed - it simply needs to be unrolled. Comes in many colors and a gold glitter damask pattern. Even venues that do not allow aisle runners will accept our Safety Grip aisle runner!
