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

- 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.

Works as it should. I wish the design included stronger connection points. Our previous bulb broke at the connection point after one year. Will see if this one lasts longer.

This is my second carbon heater to supplement the first one in my 10x20 coop. This is the third winter for my first heater without any problems. I bought an extra bulb, but so far did not have to use it. I saw some reviews about it not heating well. If you have it in a coop or dusty barn, you will have to wipe the outside and the reflector on the bottom daily, which is not a big deal.

Went together easy. Could have had a little more clear instructions, but I figured it out. Throws out good heat for a 12x8 chicken coop with no insulation in the walls. Kept it above zero when it was -30°F.

I ordered the 600 W and after hanging it in the goat house felt that the space was large enough that the 1200 W would do a better job. And it does. The house is not hot at all using the stronger bulb, but the space definitely feels warmer than the outside temperature, even with the super cold weather we're having. The lamp seems very durable and well made.

Was really expecting much more heat from a 1200 watt unit. This thing is only marginally better than a generic $20 heat lamp. Would not recommend.
