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.

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.

Have been using for a week now and with the ThermoCube it woks GREAT! I would recommend it for the price. It is worth every penny.

I bought this for my chicken pen. It kept the area warm. I love it!

I have a 2 car garage converted into a barn for my goats. They are kept in 2/3 of it with the rest used as hay and grain storage. This is the first year I've used this type of heat lamp and it kept the inside temperature at least 20 degrees warmer over the outdoor temperatures. It is a much better way to keep my animals warmer in an area that boasts below zero temps during the winter. I highly recommend it.
