Will Chicks heat lamp bother the hens?

Hello. I have a big chicken shed so in one corner I built a brooder ...this way I can keep all the chicken dust in one place! I have one of those safe heat lamps (the big heavy duty plastic type) and it has a red heat bulb. There's no way I can turn it off because it's getting down below freezing at night but I'm concerned that the light will be harmful for the chickens. It's not terribly bright because I only have mesh on one side of the brooder and the other 3 and the lid are solid.

Do you think it will be a problem? And if so what is your suggestion for a solution?
