Great Neck Middle School

Sno Gem Original Polycarbonate Snow GuardsIn January 2012, the 1,200 students of Virginia Beach’s Great Neck Middle came back from winter break to receive one last gift – a new school.

Completed in December 2011, the over $35 million dollar project consists of a three-story building employing sustainable materials, the newest technologies, and an aesthetically appealing structural design. A more than substantial upgrade from the original 50-year-old building, the new school features an assortment of additions – from visual improvements, such as updated color schemes, natural woods and fabrics, to up-to-date technology like touch screen monitors and Smartboards in each room, and snow guards.

Developed by architectural sheet metal professionals, Sno Gem’s Original Polycarbonate offers 25 square inches of bonding surface – the larger the base, the greater the holding power. The Original Polycarbonate has the largest base available anywhere! Manufactured from clear UV-stabilized polycarbonate material, or in a color that is injected throughout the product and matched to any standard roof panel. Apply using 3M VHB Tape, tube adhesive, or a mechanical fastening application. Diagonal installation creates a 7″ barrier for more coverage per unit on wider panels.

Manufactured from UV-stabalized polycarbonate, the unique design of these crystal-like guards suspends the field of snow until the snow and ice gradually melt under the sun’s rays.

CUT: Sno Gem snow guard’s prismatic design was developed by architectural sheet metal professionals with over 50 years of on-the-roof experience.

CLARITY: Sno Gem offers a clear prismatic snow guard which retains its crisp, clean good looks. There’s no metal to rust or stain. Sno Gem snow guards are unaffected by climate extremes.

COLOR: Sno Gem snow guards can be matched to all industry standard metal roof colors. Sno Gem also offers an unlimited amount of custom colors to meet architectural requirements. The color is injected throughout the product.

CARAT: The true measure of a gem’s worth. At the heart of each Sno Gem is an engineered, multi-directional, multipurpose drain opening for melting snow and ice to flow freely, plus cables can be easily routed through the opening.
