Established in 1980, Lighting Lab has become a well known and respected business within the entertainment industry. From humble beginnings over 40 years ago, Lighting Lab has expanded into one of the largest production equipment hire companies in Australia today. 
Continued growth and success over the years has allowed the company to branch into various areas of lighting, now supplying equipment for all types of events, from theatrical and school productions, to television and corporate events, from night clubs to live bands, resulting in a wide customer base with varying needs, ranging from the first time user right through to the professional level.


An integral part of Lighting Labs growth has been the success of the Rehearsal Studios.  Although often thought of as a separate entity, the Rehearsal Studios are an equally important component of the company that has been evolving since the early years. Commencing with the construction of the first studio in 1982, Lighting Lab now has a total of eight studios that are as popular as ever.


With a strong infrastructure now in place Lighting Lab branched into P.A. hire which enables customers to obtain complete production all from the one outlet. The first shipment of Audio Equipment arrived during Oct. 2005 and the delivery marked the start of an exciting new era for everyone involved with the company.


With continual expansion of the company, the biggest change occurred in February 2006 when the entire Hire Department was relocated to the new Lighting Lab premises at Factory 9 / 10 Clarice Road, Box Hill, whilst the studios continue to operate at 16 Clarice Road, Box Hill. A project that took over 2 years of careful planing and a massive amount of  hard work. The new larger premises has also allowed for an increased quantity of sales stock to be kept on hand providing customers with a new range of low priced lighting effects and the always popular disposable items such as smoke and haze fluid, gaffa tape, gel, lamps, etc..

More recently Lighting Lab has become one of the largest suppliers LED Screens in Australia. With over 1400 x LED Panels available for hire, they are able to supply various panel options suitable for a wide range of applications. From Concerts, Theatre, Corporate and Sporting events just to name a few.  


So, after more than 35 years of hard work and experience, Lighting Lab is looking  forward to a bright and exciting future, and whilst it is clear to see that much has changed over the years, the one thing that has always remained the same, has been the single aim of  the company, to provide 'the latest technology at Australia's best prices', giving their clients the quality and service they deserve.
