Powerful And Fuel Efficient Radiant Heat
Space-Ray's new FUSION™ delivers a large, superior heat pattern at litter level. Better brood conditions mean more comfort for your birds.

Space-Ray Radiant Gas Tube Heaters operate using the same principle as the sun. Before heating the air, radiant warmth is delivered directly to the birds and litter area where it's needed most.


  • An energy efficient radiant heating system that saves fuel, reduces maintenance & permits higher mounting..
  • Calorized aluminized steel emitter tubes* for corrosion resistance and greater radiant output.
  • Unique diagnostic monitoring lights show when heater is operating, and assists with fault diagnosis.
  • Ceiling stays cool – no need for insulated board above heater.**
  • Excellent radiant throw and even temperature distribution.
  • CSA design certified for safety.
  • 4" diameter tubes create a large radiant surface to emit more heat over a wide rectangular area.
  • Each unit comes with fresh air intake kit, exhaust hood, stainless steel flexible gas connector and a pre-wired electrical connection.
  • Features a 3-Year limited warranty on complete emitter assembly


Tube Integrity Safety Shut-Off System

U.S. Patent #8,000,075

Space-Ray’s patented innovative safety feature for positive pressure radiant tube heaters is called the “Tube Integrity Safety System'' (TISS™). The revolutionary TISS™ uses a simple principle to place an electrically insulated aluminum wire in tension above the reflector as shown above.
Low voltage is then continuously passed along the wire in line with the gas control circuit. If heat levels increase due to heat exchanger failure, the wire melts and the safety circuit is broken, breaking the 24 volt circuit and shutting down the heater.

  • Low profile mounting bracket permits easy leveling of brooder
  • Large deep dish canopy to efficiently reflect heat to litter area where it is needed most
  • The stainless emitter assembly is fully insulated and enclosed. It features a full 3-year limited warranty
  • The burner assembly with durable cast iron cap features large burner ports for more even heat distribution and years of trouble free service
  • The safety pan helps to shield litter area directly beneath the brooder
  • Has a stainless steel main burner gas line for strength and durability
  • The direct spark ignition model's 3-try direct spark ignition is in a moisture resistant enclosure for added reliability
