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.
- Heater with 600W bulb (12" dia shade) for a 10 x 10 ft space
- Heater with 1200W bulb (16" dia shade) for a 20 x 20 ft space
- 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
- 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
- Metal shield helps disperse heat
- Simple on/off switch
- Secure hanging attachment
- 7.5 ft cord (see precaution about extension cords below)
- 600W heater use 600W bulb
- 1200W heater use 1200W bulb
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.

Heavy duty and well made, keeps our lambing and kidding pens warm.

I only gave it a 3 because I can't use this heater in my current setup. I read the information for the product that said it needs to be hung higher than a normal lamp and it would require a few feet. When I got the lamp the instructions state you need 5' of clearance. I don't have 5' of clearance for the lamp. Closer to 3'6" so I am afraid to try it out for safety reasons. We did turn the lamp on and it seemed to generate the amount of heat we expected. We are hoping that maybe over the summer we can figure out a new configuration for next winter so we can use the lamp.

Love this. I only wish I could use the 1200 watt, but I think I need new wiring.

3 baby goats were born just before our Polar Vortex. Even at -25 windchill, 0 degrees, the babies and moms enjoyed a 30 degree stall. I installed a ceiling of insulation 6 ft from the floor with 3 inch insulation foam boards to hold in the heat of the heat lamp. Everybody is happy and healthy thanks to this heat lamp!

I am very pleased with this lamp, so pleased I bought a second one. I also have 3 of their other heat lamps which I love! I am so amazed at the incredibly fast shipping and great packaging! Premier 1 is the best!!!
