SIPs SAVE 50% - 80% ON HEATING & COOLING COSTS FOREVER!
Alaska Insulated Panels (AIP) is dedicated to providing energy-efficient cost-effective solutions to the many challenges associated with constructing buildings in cold climate environments. Alaska Insulated Panels is a manufacturer of polyurethane (PUR) structural insulated panels (SIP’s), utilizing state-of-the-art equipment. Polyurethane is a superior foam to expanded polystyrene (EPS or Styrofoam) which is used by most other SIP manufacturers.
Our commitment to providing a sustainable environment comes from our founding philosophy: "We must do the best we can to serve ourselves, but we must not forget that in the final analysis, we serve society whose approval of our actions forms the basis for the existence of our company."
AIP was founded to enhance and control the quality of SIPs used in the manufacturing of R-Valued Homes. The rising costs of shipping and poor quality control by other suppliers created the need for an Alaskan manufacturing plant to supply R-Valued Homes with quality SIPs.
AIP SIPs are manufactured under closely monitored conditions and can be fabricated to fit nearly any building design. The result is a building product that is extremely strong, energy-efficient, cost-effective, and eco-friendly. Our SIPs will save you time, money, and labor.
Fabrication is a process that starts with a set of building plans (blueprints) that have been developed by architects, building designers, or owners. From these plans, shop drawings are created and engineered to specific geographical design parameters. Shop drawings detail all of the fabrication pertaining to the building envelope i.e. wall length and height, window and door rough openings, gables, floor, roof, and added details specified by the engineer.
SIP panels are then fabricated to the specific dimensions shown on the shop drawings and routed to be able to add dimensional framing lumber for top and bottom plates, corners, window and door openings, headers, electrical chases, etc. as specified. Panels are then marked and numbered as shown on the shop drawing; these numbers also reference the location and sequence of installation on the job site. Wall assemblies are then dry fitted and checked for accuracy. Panels are packaged by location, (i.e. foundation, floor, roof, east wall, etc.) wrapped, and banded for shipment.
How you can save money building with AIP SIPs:
Building your project using AIP SIPs allows you or your builder to complete six framing processes at one time
Pre-fabricated and cut in our manufacturing plant where it's dry fit and checked for accuracy before being shipped to you
Locally made in Alaska, not on a barge to Alaska
Electrical chases and boxes are pre-cut, saving your electrician time and materials and making the installation of wires a breeze
Installation of the building envelope can be completed 75% faster than conventional stick framing, resulting in saved man-hours
Reduced landfill cost because AIP SIPs have been precut at the factory
Reduced mechanical equipment costs because of the superior R-value of AIP SIPs
Healthier home - better indoor air quality when used with a proper mechanical ventilation system
