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

- 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.

Very nice heater. Good way to keep your chickens happy.

We do not get many freezing cold nights in northern Mississippi but when they do arrive I want to know my chickens are warm and safe. This lamp is so much better than the brooder red glass lamp.

This heater was easy to assemble and get set up in my barn where the orphan lambs are being kept. I’m eager to see how this works with my baby goats once we start kidding.

Unfortunately, until I read the instructions that came with this light, I did not know the requirements for spacing distances. My coop is 9 ft x 6 ft. I thought this would work, however based on the instructions, you need a minimum of 10 ft x 10 ft. I have returned the item.

This heater has been amazing. We had extreme cold temperatures come in and we added it to standard heat lamps that did very little for the coop temperature. The carbon heater more than tripled the output of those two heat lamps. More importantly, it increased the coop temperature more than 20°F. This thing is very substantial and appears to be durable. It’s a great product and kept our chickens from freezing, literally.
