Regent Logo





Regent Lighting Solutions is a division of Wahl Industries, a South African based manufacturing company employing over 300 staff, where bold thinking and rigorous craftsmanship combine to bring innovative, modern and functional lighting design to life.

We are approaching 3 decades of setting the standards of excellence in lighting solutions in South Africa and continue to push the limits of lighting design & technology.

Whether were creating light fittings, solving lighting solutions or simply providing expert customer service, our work is born from a desire to create solutions that enhance the lighting industry through the understanding of the unique African environment in which we work.

Sustainable Investment
In 2015, we invested in a Solar system as an alternative energy source at our premises with a 300 kWp roof top grid-tied photovoltaic solar system consisting of a 1,200 - 250W Polycrystalline panels, generating approximately 541,328 kWh per annum reducing our carbon emissions & supplementing our power requirements.


In-House Capabilities

Designing and developing our own products in-house allows us the flexibility to develop uniquely customised lighting solutions.

We have always taken a complete systems approach to identifying intelligent lighting solutions for designers and consultants seeking a cost effective high quality product manufactured in Africa. We have an in-house design team consisting of 6 industrial designers who work closely with the sales team, architects, engineers and lighting designers throughout the concept development and design stages. Interpreting sketches, brainstorming, drafting concepts and creating 3D renderings of the product, to ensure design specifications are achieved. With 2 Lighting Designers who use DIALUX professional lighting design software, we are able to provide lighting design solutions for exterior and interior projects.

Our in-house Photometric laboratory features a Goniometer, allowing us to independently photometer our luminaires to ensure the correct lamp or LED diode positioning and thus ensuring maximum efficiency. This is a critical element in the design process of our fittings as it allows us to ensure lighting performance while retaining the design integrity. The testing laboratory on-site enables testing of light fittings in a controlled environment to ensure accurate specifications and measurements can be determined in order to provide a quality product and peace of mind for our clients. Developing light fittings to compliment the architectural design of buildings,

Regent’s product range is continually evolving to meet the technical and design demands of our market. Embracing new technology, we work closely with leading component manufacturers to develop luminaires that accommodate the latest technology in energy efficiency and controls. .
