Infrared Stall and Barn Heaters
Unless you live in a temperate climate, your horses will really appreciate a bit of warmth in the winter. And if one of your babies ever gets sick or injured, a warm stall is essential. Our infrared horse stall and barn heaters are an economical choice for supplying the comfort they need.
Infrared heaters are designed to heat objects rather than air so you’re not wasting your dollars on heating something that won’t appreciate the warmth. The objects (including your horses) then heat the surrounding air – extremely efficient! And while forced air heaters may seem warmer, they’re hugely inefficient and expensive because of the drafty, uninsulated nature of barns. Not to mention the noise they give off is loud and the blowing nature of that kind of heater stirs up unhealthy particulates.
A healthy horse is a happy horse, and the sun-like quality of infrared heat is the kind horses appreciate.
A solarium, which is a system of large red lamps that give off infrared heat, will help your horse by improving performance, increasing circulation, and reducing injury. The heat energy generated by the lamps penetrates the skin, aiding in warming up prior to exercise and drying and loosening muscles after exercise.
Our horse solarium is built with a heat resistant, colored ABS reinforced body. The lamp positioning is designed to treat specific muscle groups. The front is raised to allow free movement of the horse’s neck and it features rounded edges to avoid injury. A combination of infrared heat lamps of varying wattage, as well as 4 air circulators, ensures an even and pleasant temperature over your horse. The lamps are mounted into aluminum back boxes set into the main body, preventing a horse from making contact with the lamps themselves. The aluminum back boxes minimize corrosion and heat loss into and behind the main body shell.
