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

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 just purchased my second carbon fiber heater — they are super space efficient, safe and reliable. I would never use a heat lamp in my barn for fear of fire, but with these I feel 100% safe. The heat disperses and warms the entire area, not just a small space directly beneath it. Definitely recommend.

I got the smaller heater to put in our show pigpen for when we brought home show pigs in 10°F temperature. The pen is insulated with 1" insulation completely and with this heater and 2 of the regular heat lamps we were able to keep the pen around 58°F–60°F. This was a great purchase.

So far the replacement bulb is working well. Hope it continues to last.

Very happy with this for keeping our new puppies warm out in the shed!

There is very little heat output. I have a 250W heat lamp bulb that puts out more heat. I am very disappointed.
