Shortwave Infrared for Farming
Traditional agricultural infrared lamps (pig lamps) are low powered and must be placed very close to animals to be of any benefit. SunSwitch BaskZone® heaters are much more powerful and are suspended or wall-mounted at a safe distance from the animals, creating a large and effective pool of heat.
SunSwitch BaskZone® heaters do not directly heat the air but mimic the warming effect of the sun’s rays. Beneficial conditions can be created even in highly ventilated or open sided buildings and barns, allowing new-borns and young animals to get off to a really good start in life. BaskZone® heaters are also ideal for spot heating. A warm basking zone in the corner of an enclosure provides physical comfort, as well as a calm and relaxing spot to recover from parturition or illness.
In poultry farming, BaskZone® infrared heat is highly effective at maintaining brooding floor temperatures and combatting the formation of moisture in poultry bedding and litter. This helps decrease the likelihood of pododermatitis and hock burn.
