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.

I bought the 600W Carbon Heater for my chicken coop and it is doing great. The temperatures are below freezing at night and it seems to keep the coop comfortable!

Hands down, this is the best heat lamp that I've ever used! I bought the larger sized unit to warm an approximately 300 square foot area, and it keeps the coop at a nice 30-40 degree range, even when it's single digits outside. Very happy hens now!

Bought 2 different size lamps; I'm not impressed with the amount of heat that is generated from the small one. I have not used the larger one and actually plan on returning.

Bought two of these last year and ran them all winter. Never had to replace the elements and they are back up this year and still running. Bought two more this year for some of the other run-ins.

This heater works exceptionally well. It has replaced three heat lamps in my chicken run. Very safe and sturdy. Does give off a little light which is okay. Definitely would not use this in a closed space application. Temps are in the single digits and the chickens stay warm under it. Love it!
