Floors and Foundations

AIP SIPs are manufactured under tightly controlled 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.

Solutions for Energy Efficiency

Made In Alaska logo with polar bear and cub



Alaska's Manufacturer of energy efficient, eco-friendly Structural Insulated Panels (SIP) for homes and commercial projects.


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) in structural insulated panels (SIP’s), utilizing state-of-the art equipment. Polyurethane is a superior foam than expanded polystyrene (EPS or Styrofoam) which is used by most SIP manufacturers.


Our Commitment to 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 a manufacturing plant to supply R-Valued Homes with Quality SIP panels.


Fabrication is a process that starts with a set of building plans (blueprints) which 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 for adding dimensional framing lumber for top and bottom plates, corners, window and door openings, headers, electrical chases, etc. as specified and detailed in the shop drawings.  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 ready for shipment.

Design Friendly: AIP SIPs can be used in almost any structure design.


Highest Fire Rating:  The Polyurethane foam used by AIP is UL rated class “1”, has a flame spread number less than 25, a smoke developed number less than 400 and is resistant to attacks by fuel, oils, most solvents and other chemicals. Polyurethane is a cross-linked thermoset plastic that is highly resistant to heat, capable of withstanding temperatures of 800 ºF (427 ºC). When exposed to high temperatures, the polyurethane foam only chars, it does not melt. In residential applications, building codes require that the interior surface of all foam products must be covered with a 15 minute thermal barrier.


Structural Integrity: SIP’s are 4 times stronger than standard “2x” framed construction. When polyurethane foam is injected between two skins of standard building materials, a natural bond develops, thereby making the panel structurally analogous to an I-beam.


Energy Efficiency: Polyurethane foam has the highest R-value per inch of all the foam family, making it one of the most efficient insulating materials currently available. AIP’s polyurethane SIP’s have the highest R-values (R-8.2 @20⁰ F) per inch of all the insulating materials available in the market place today. Nominal panel sizes are 4 feet wide and 8,9,10 and 12 feet long with thicknesses of 4-1/2 inches (R-28), and 6-1/2 inches (R-44).


Time: AIP pre-manufactured SIP building envelope can be assembled by workers without extensive training 3 to 4 times faster than conventional stick framing thus saving time and money without compromising quality.


Money: Cost of total completed project is comparable to all other current building types.  AIP panels are pre-cut and dry-fit (checking for accuracy) at the factory. This process reduces on site labor cost, eliminates on site waste, shipping excessive materials, interest on borrowed capital and environmental impact on local landfills, just to name a few.


Healthy Home: Helps prevent mold and mildew and blocks airborne pollutants. When a properly designed heating/cooling and ventilation system is added to a AIP SIP building system you have created the most energy efficient and healthiest building available in the market today.


By combining its structural integrity, high R-value and perm rating a polyurethane foam core SIP creates an alternative building product that delivers the most energy efficient solution to homeowners, builders and commercial businesses available today.


Do you know 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 its 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 pre-cut,  saving your electrician time and materials and making installing wires a breeze.
  • Installation of building envelope can be completed 75% faster than conventional stick framing.  Resulting in saved man hours.
  • Reduced landfill cost,because AIP SIPs precut at the factory.
  • Reduced mechanical equipment costs because of superior R-value of AIP SIPs.
  • Healthier home - Better indoor air quality with proper mechanical ventilation system.
  • 20 year limited warranty
