The art of blending in!

The art of blending in!

Following a trip to Europe, the President fell under the charm of the elegance of welded mesh fencing, it’s the beginning of the new welded wire fencing systems in Canada and the United States. The Omega-shaped (Ω) post of the time, the last letter of the Greek alphabet, influences the choice of the name of this new fence system. From its appearance in North America, these elegant, discreet and non-obstructive fences harmonize well with both traditional and modern architecture. Just like the Kleenex brand which is the reference for tissue paper ... The OMEGA II fence systems are the reference of the welded wire fence.
