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

|16"W x 16"L x 13"H
|110V Cord Length
- 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.

The light was shipped quickly and it went together easily with the aid of the video posted on the Premier 1 website. The chickens have the chill cut down in their coop. Good purchase since it works as advertised.

I am very impressed. I bought 2 (1200 watt heaters) and they work great. I have one in the indoor shed for my mini pig and one in the chicken coop.
Neither are well insulated and both areas are warm when I go into feed in the morning. My pig's water bucket doesn't freeze anymore either. Big bonus!

Robust design and build. Tremendous heat output while remaining safely above the animals and combustible barn floors and wall. Superior to standard heat lamps.

These are great heaters! I purchased it from a friend who had an extra on hand originally purchased at Premier1. I hung it over my bottle lambs. The outside temperature was -20F and not much warmer in the shed they were housed in. The lambs stayed warm and comfortable and the milk self feeder didn’t freeze up at all. Kept an 8x8 pen warmed nicely for the lambs. I’m glad I had it on hand this year!

Just bought two more if these lamps, for a total of 5. We use them on our pigs. Love that they have a on/off switch, and that if they get tilted to one side they automatically turn off. We’ve owned a couple for over a year and the original coil is still going strong.
