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 (30°) 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.
- Safety “kill switch” turns the unit off if an unsafe angle (greater than 30°) is reached
- Carbon fiber bulbs produce 4–6 times more heat than conventional bulbs
- Reflecting cone directs heat downward toward livestock
- Wire grill prevents animals or birds from contacting bulbs
- Metal chimney with cooling fins disperses heat and protects electronic controls

|Radiant Coverage Area||10' x 10' space||20' x 20' space|
|Dimensions||12"W x 12"L x 12"H||16"W x 16"L x 13"H|
|110V Cord Length||7-½"||7-½"|
|Replacement Bulbs*||600W (#557302)||1200W (#557304)|
- 600W heater use 600W bulb (#557302)
- 1200W heater use 1200W bulb (#557304)
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.
We don’t recommend using an extension cord in situations where it can be avoided. If you do, you MUST use a heavy-duty outdoor extension cord that is rated for a minimum of 10 amps (1200 watts) continuous draw.
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.

Hoping it works well! Bought with a ThermoCube as a way of adding some warmth to my sheep shed. Fingers crossed.

I bought this to use in a barn. I don’t have heat in it and home cats that are not adoptable in it. The light is very nice and seems to work great. After only 30 minutes of use, the high wattage of the light blew the entire wall of sockets. I’m keeping it until next year when I can get an electrician in to fix the outlets and make this light usable.

I purchased this heat lamp, as per the recommendation of my aunt who has horses. I was trying to find a way to work in my unheated garage without a heat source or using a plug-in electric heater which can be dangerous (or a portable propane heater). She suggested these heat lamps. The past few nights have dipped down into the 40s and last night 30s and I was able to work in my garage.
I need to buy a few more of these, and hang them around the various areas of my garage. That will be the true test when temps dip down in the 20s and teens. All told, this is a well made product that really throws some heat. Sorry I am not a farmer, but as mentioned, my aunt has horses and she swears by these heat lamps.

I love these lamps! I now have 5, throughout my barns. They really radiate heat over a larger area, and during our cold blast, all my sheep/goats, old donkey and older mule lay under them. The temperatures in my barns was about 15 degrees warmer than outside.

Works awesome! I have it in my 12x20 foot shed and it keeps the chill out for my calves. Even with a door open their water bucket doesn’t freeze.
