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.
- Warming lambs and goat kids in orphan pens
- Added warmth in chicken coops, barns or stables
- 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.
- Simple on/off switch.
- Secure hanging attachment.
- 7.5 ft of cord.
- 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.
Do not enclose in barrels or other similar enclosed locations. They heat must be able to move away from the heating unit.
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.
Replacement Bulbs (sold separately) MUST be matched to the correct heater. Use 600W heater with 600W bulb. Use 1200W heater with 1200W bulb.
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.

Disappointed. Product is made in China. Had I known the country of origin I would not have purchased the unit. I only purchase electrical goods made in USA due to risk of fire. Many products for electrical work made outside the USA seem to manufactured in a shoddy fashion. As I am concerned re the risk of fire I am willing to pay more for high quality electrical supplies.
That said, I followed the installation directions and set the lamp at the recommended height of 1.5 meters above the ground. After running the unit for 12+ hours the recorded temperature at ground level was +/- 60 degrees F, too cold for my baby chicks. So... I have needed to use my heat lamps as well!!!

This lamp works great. First day in use it was 35 degrees and raining; pretty miserable and raw. I have an 8x8 structure that is insulated and after a few hours it was down right comfy in there. I tried the 600watt lamp in the same structure and it didn't work as well. Only gave it four stars because I have only used it for a few days and not sure how long the bulbs last.

Pretty happy with this lamp. It generates a gentler, more widespread heat than a regular heat lamp, which I actually prefer. It does seem to warm the entire 16 x 16 stall instead of just directly under the lamp. Only change I would like to see to give it five stars is for the metal shade to be a bit more heavy duty. It is pretty lightweight for the price of the lamp.

I love this lamp! I am amazed how well it spreads the heat throughout. I put my first one in a poorly insulated 15 x 18' section the barn, and am really pleased with the heat that spread throughout. This winter we had 14 days of really horrible cold (-35C) and we managed to keep the temps about 20 degrees warmer than outside. Am eager to install a second one to keep the rest of the barn comfortable.

Doesn't throw much in the way of heat at all. Tried to use it to warm an 8x8 structure that is insulated and it barely raised the temp 15 degrees. Got more heat out of a couple of heat lamps.
