Carbon Fiber Heaters
New! 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 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.

Works great. Really spreads the heat through the entire coop. Coupled with a Thermo cube and we have very happy hens. We’ll see how it goes next week when it is below 0. Also interested to see the impact on my electric bill compared to the heat lamp I was using.

I purchased this light for my combination coop/greenhouse to keep the temp up when below freezing outside. Building is 18x22. It is working great. Building averages about 15-20 degrees warmer than outside temps. I've tried several heat sources and this is by far the best one I have found.

I purchased this lamp to use in my 'cold weather goat barn', where I put my 9 goats at night when the temps reach single digits or below 0. The area is approx. 15' x 25' x 7', and insulated only with certifoam on the wall and ceiling, covered on lower half of walls with oxboard. Floor is cement covered with pine shavings. Not totally airtight, but sufficient. We hung the lamp in the middle of the room, on a night when it got to -2 outside. The next morning, we checked the thermometer on the wall inside, and it was 29 degrees. The lamp did the job of keeping everyone warm! I recommend this lamp to those wishing to provide extra comfort for their animals.

Seems to be working well in our recent 17 degree cold snap. The info says it doesn't generate light which could disrupt the chickens' diurnal cycle like heat lamps, however, there is quite a lot of orange light.
