Comfort Heat Plate



Comfort Heat Plate (Contact Heat)

Providing your newly hatched chicks with the right type of heat can make all the difference. 
At Appletons we have used Comfort Heat Plates for many years and it is great to see them now available for sale again in NZ. Over the years we have used them we have found them to be very reliable and an asset when raising chicks.
They are made in Holland and are a very well made, good quality product. There are 5 different sizes available offering excellent value for money and with a new very clever height adjusting system, making them incredibly practical and energy saving.

All the advantages of the new Comfort Heat Plate:

  • Easy adjustment of height
  • Enhanced insulation (PU)
  • Higher plate temperature as before
  • Low energy costs
  • Double security thanks to a temperature fuse and a resistance fuse
  • LED indicator

Heat plates are a very natural heating system for chicks as it stimulates the natural heating of a mother hen and makes for healthier chicks. Chicks love to pop under mother hen for security and warmth and the Comfort Heat Plate does just the same. It is ideal to use for different types of poultry, ducks, pheasants and quail. We have used ours in the past to raise pheasants, ducks and chicks with great success. The beauty about these heat plates is that they are very economical to run so, in the long run, be a cost-saving investment. These plates are very easy to use and with the new unique height adjustment system, it makes setting the height easy. Safety has been ensured by including both a temperature and resistance fuse.  

The optional regulator is available with 30cm x 30cm Comfort Heat Plate only. The regulator is equipped with a 1-meter long cable. Controls temperature between 20%-100%. To be used up to 100 Watts.

All round the Comfort Heat Plate gets a big tick from us!

Comfort Heating plate

Great product for rearing our turkey poults, they seem to do really well with it.Easy website to use, fast delivery.Very happy with the service.


Having just caught 17 keets I was in a hurry to buy a comfort heat plate to keep them warm. The person at the end of the phone couldnt have been more helpful, especially with finding out where the courier could drop off the package the following day.(We are Rural ) If she had not looked up the addresses for me, we would have been waiting for several days before we could receive our purchase.

Fantastic product

After using heat lamps for the last few years, we changed to the heatplate. Wow! Wish wed done this a lot sooner. The chicks love it and the power consumption is massively reduced. Speedy service and delivery.
