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

|Replacement Bulbs*||600W (#557302)||1200W (#557304)|
- 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.

Not worth the money. Must not be subjected to drafts. You are MUCH better off buying Premier’s heat lamps. They are safer and more versatile. If you are hanging these lamps in a horse stall on a 60°F day they may concentrate heat…but if it’s 15°F and hanging over your baby piglets and the room isn’t completely windproof forget it, you are wasting your time. I would send it back but it’s not worth the shipping costs.

Bought this lamp for a heat source for my livestock. Safe and heavy-duty fixture. Provides the heat needed on cold days and nights without the safety issues of the lightweight metal heat lamps. Hopefully these will last for years to come and prevent purchases of heat lamp fixtures and heat lamp bulbs that do not last even one season.

This heater is awesome! I have a huge fear of starting a fire with a heater that’s unattended but this one has been great. I have 2 in the chicken house, which is an old metal hay barn with no insulation, and it gives a very warming heat all through the building. We don’t have a lot of cold weather but we did have a couple weeks of 20-25 degree days/nights and their waterers had some ice crystals but never really froze. I would recommend these heaters they have been very effective and safe.

We experienced some very cold weather this year and our barn cats looked for shelter on our back porch. The electric space heaters weren't keeping up with the cold. We put this lamp in and the cats love it. They spend most of the cold days sprawled on the floor soaking up the heat. This was a good purchase and makes us feel much safer using this lamp verses a space heater.
