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.
- Warming lambs and goat kids in orphan pens
- Added warmth in chicken coops, barns or stables
- 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.
- Simple on/off switch.
- Secure hanging attachment.
- 7.5 ft of cord.
- 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.
Do not enclose in barrels or other similar enclosed locations. They heat must be able to move away from the heating unit.
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.
Replacement Bulbs (sold separately) MUST be matched to the correct heater. Use 600W heater with 600W bulb. Use 1200W heater with 1200W bulb.
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.

Love this heater—keeps the coop at a nice, even temperature. My littlest hen was able to curl up on her own, instead of crowding in with the others to have some type of warmth. It's much better than the other heat lamps I've used and I wish I would have bought it sooner.

Excellent source of warmth. Gets an even temperature in a stall or barn.

My husband installed the heater. It has only gotten down to 20 degrees so far. Coop stayed real cozy at 20 so I believe another 20 degrees colder it would still be a comfortable safe temp for the chickens. My husband and the chickens are happy. I am happy too!

I purchased the 600 watt heater for our coop to bring up the temp a few degrees in the colder weather. I have yet to use it but have tested the installed heater and I can feel radiant heat on my hand from three feet. I feel the heater will serve the purpose to knock off some chill. It hangs approx three feet from the ceiling in a area of 8x9.

So far the carbon lights are working well although with a November warm spell I turned them off. Excellent design from safety and installation standpoint. The care in packing was amazing. I wait to see how they work in the very frigid weather up here along Lake Superior.
