If you are looking for equine heaters, look no further! Equine SunSwitch BaskZone® stable heaters provide gentle background warmth exactly like that of the sun, feeling natural and comforting. They are perfectly safe to leave on overnight. BaskZone® stable heaters reduce the need to rug horses, improving coat condition, and saving time and laundry costs. They are a great form of warmth for foaling mares and convalescent horses.

Horses cannot see anything above eye height (BHS Veterinary Manual Ch. 2) so the light output from a BaskZone® stable heater is not visible directly. The gently red glow from the BaskZone® does not affect the horse's circadian system and will not disrupt its internal body clock. However, it does allow discreet observation overnight while avoiding the stress resulting from turning on white lights at night.

Stable Heater 2 is ideal for larger stables and foaling boxes. It consists of a pair of Equine SunSwitch BaskZone® shortwave infrared heaters with one controller, to provide full heat adjustment for complete comfort, whatever the weather, and even overnight. The heaters can be wall mounted or suspended and are suitable for use in most good sized stables or loose boxes.

The aim is not to heat the whole stable. A cosy corner or basking zone is what horses like. So we recommend a heater on a side wall towards the back of the box, and another on the back wall. Horses will move into the basking zone for more warmth, and away to be cooler.

Launched in 2016, the BaskZone® infrared heater was developed by Equine SunSwitch specifically for use with horses. This innovative heater has a Cool-Touch casing, allowing you to adjust the angle during use if required. The front safety grille is removable for cleaning as necessary.
