Carbon Fiber Heaters
High-output heater for lambing pens, chicken coops or horse stables. Not recommended for use in chick brooders.
Due to their high heat output, Carbon Fiber Heaters should be hung higher than heat lamps. This allows heat to disperse over a large area and prevents hot spots. Available in 600 or 1200 watt configurations. (Bulbs and lamps are not interchangeable.)
Built-in “kill switch” turns the unit off if an unsafe angle occurs. So if it falls or is smashed, the heater is immediately disabled. Protects your buildings, livestock, poultry and pets.
Carbon fiber bulbs have a very long life and are efficient—98% of watts become heat.
- Heater with 600w bulb (12" dia shade) for a 10 x 10 ft space.
- Heater with 1200w bulb (16" dia shade) for a 20 x 20 ft space.
- Unique internal tilt switch turns the unit off if an unsafe angle (greater than 30°) is reached.
- High-output carbon fiber bulbs produce 4-6 times more heat than conventional bulbs.
- Cooling fins reduce heat build-up around electronic controls.
- Included reflecting cone directs heat downward toward livestock.
- Wire grill prevents animals or birds from contacting bulbs.
- Simple on/off switch.
- Secure hanging attachment.
- 7.5 ft of cord.
- 600W heater use 600W bulb
- 1200W heater use 1200W bulb
When installing new bulbs, be sure to handle the bulb with a cloth or covering. This prevents oil transfer from your hands to the bulb, which reduces its usable life.
Due to the high heat output of these units, we recommend placing them higher (further away from the ground or animals) than conventional heat lamps. This will allow the heat to disperse over a larger area and prevents “hot-spots” from forming. Do not allow birds/animals direct access to any heater or heat lamp.
Do not enclose in barrels or other similar enclosed locations. They heat must be able to move away from the heating unit.
Note: Even though we find our heaters safer than common metal lamps, we still take every precaution to reduce fire risk. Secure the lamp several feet above the ground where it cannot be jostled by livestock.
Warning: Risk of electrical shock—Connect only to a branch circuit protected by a ground-fault circuit-interrupter (GFCI). Contact a qualified electrician if you cannot verify that the circuit is protected by a GFCI.

One 600W heater kept the chickens and guineas from frostbite even on the coldest of nights (-48 degrees without the windchill). The coop is an old wooden, partially insulated, 10'x20' shed and the coldest it got inside the coop, according to the wireless temperature readout, was 6 degrees. I did not turn the heater on unless the temperature was in the low teens and did not see a significant increase in the electric bill.

Works well and is very reliable so far. This is my second one of these. Eventually will replace all of my red-light heat lamps. I like this one since it gives off much less light and more heat. Only issue is that it is very sensitive to being perfectly vertical. This is done for safety, of course, but I think it could be a little more tolerant of a slight angle. Have to be very careful to hang it perfectly vertical to get it to come on.

Has eliminated the safety concern associated with high wattage heat lamps. Love this product.

Love these heaters! I have two of the 1200W for my donkeys walk in barn. They are hanging about 4ft apart. The donkeys & mini horse are able to stand under them to warm up, and it keeps the rest of their area many degrees warmer. I keep them on 24/7 during the bitter cold weather, and the bulbs are still going strong. They appear much safer than all the other heaters I have seen.

It worked great in January... then the filament burned out in February. Now I’m back to using my old heat lamps. The filaments should last longer than a month given their high price.
