    Dear sirs
    I’m very much interested in your solartube for installing
    in my house in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
    Is it available in the region?
    best regards
    H.M. Jongkin

      Hi Herman,
      Thanks for your interest in our Solatube daylighting systems. Eco-Building Products does not have an affiliate in Cambodia but Solatube International probably does because it sells all over the world. If you go to, I bet you can find out how to organize an installation of their daylighting system in Phnon Penh. Good luck!
