Alaska IECC Energy Codes for Metal Buildings
Alaska is in fact the state where the need for reliable, high-quality insulation for metal structures is most vital. Although there is no statewide energy code in Alaska for commercial structures, there has been an established program in place since 2012, it is called the Alaska Building Energy Efficiency Standard (BEES), it is based on the 2012 IECC and went into effect on April 3rd, 2013.
For buildings in the transportation, public facilities, and education departments, Alaska has adopted ASHRAE 90.1-2010 without modification for commercial buildings. All other commercial buildings are not covered by a mandatory code.
Steel Building Insulation’s wide array of insulation and related products can help ensure that your commercial structures conform with these standards, whether you need to purchase new metal building insulation, vinyl insulation, or repair or retrofit existing Alaskan structures with new or additional insulation. We carry an extensive variety of metal building insulation products that are made to withstand blustery temperatures and brutal Alaskan winters while minimizing potential issues caused by condensation and other environmental hazards.
You can insulate virtually any metal commercial structure using highly-resistant fiber glass blankets with a variety of different facing option. Our products are delivered in pre-cut rolls that will arrive to you in professional color-coded, pre-marked packaging intended to streamline the installation process. We also carry metal building insulation accessories, including patch tape, double-faced tape, facings, tabs, insulation blankets, steel banding and more. Our products conform with the standards set by the North American Insulation Manufacturers Association, are fire-resistant and noncombustible, and can be delivered to virtually any accessible site.
As national leaders in the industry for more than 30 years, Steel Building Insulation, a division of Building Outlet Corp., dedicates itself to providing top of the line, name-brand products at affordable prices, without sacrificing quality. We are able to offer this to Alaska residents and businesses through a business model that relies on volume pre-purchasing,and low overhead costs that together help ensure that your insulation pays for itself in a short time period by improving efficiency while simultaneously dramatically reducing energy costs.
Current Building Energy Code for Alabama: None Statewide
Amendments / Additional State Code Information:
The Building Energy Efficiency Standard (BEES) consists of the 2012 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) and ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2010 and state specific amendments adopted by the Alaska Housing Finance Corporation (AHFC) on June 18, 2014 for commercial mortgage loans and energy rebates and energy retrofits commercial and public buildings.
