The roof of our garden sheds is extremely sturdy and can withstand snow loads of up to 150 kg/m² (CasaNova 215 kg/m²). However, avalanches can cause roof damages.
In order to avoid damages in case of stormy weather, all Biohort products must be secured to the ground floor using the mounting parts provided, such as anchors and dowels.
Biohort declines any kind of responsibility for damages caused by inadequate mounting of storm proof anchorage.
Most Biohort storage solutions are fitted with a lockable twist-grip, a cylinder lock or a door with a profile cylinder lock.
Biohorts -Garden Shed/-Equipment Locker/-LeisureTime Box/-PAKET-BOX/-StoreMax can therefore be defined as a "lockable container" and the contents can be insured up to a defined value limit against burglary. Of course even locked Biohort products can be opened with the appropriate force. Our garden sheds "HighLine", "AvantGarde" and the annexe "CasaNova" provide the highest levels of security against burglary.
When we speak of a burglary, we generally mean a ‘break-in’ or forced entry accompanied by theft. That is to say, if the burglar, by the use of force and with aid of tools, illegally-built keys or with keys that have been previously acquired by burglary or robbery, gains access to a secure building with the intent to steal property stored within.
A burglary also occurs if the offender manages to overcome barriers and barricades or to enter through openings not designed to admit access or through an act of stealth obtains access to secured premises. Finally, the entrance into and removal of objects from locked containers or premises is also defined as an act of burglary.
Biohort products need almost no care and maintenance, due to the high quality of the materials and their careful manufacture. Just lubricate the lock and the hinges once a year. Clean the shutter guides of the StoreMax regularly resp. lubricate them with silicone spray. If the products get dirty caused by climatic and environmental influences, use only water and the Biohort CleanLine universal cleaner.
It is also possible to use a high-pressure cleaner, as long as you keep a distance of min.10 cm and use no steam cleaner. Max pressure approx. 80 bar.
For conversation of the painted surface, we recommend you the Biohort CleanLine conservation, which optimally protects the painted surface from climatic and environmental influences.
In cases of scratches, varnish the spots affected with some lacquer.
Important: Salty and/or sandy ambient air, aggressive and scrubbing cleaners, thawing salt, fertilizers and other chemical materials (never store products opened) can attack the lacquer painted and zinc surface and cause rust damages.
Claims under guarantee cannot be granted.

Biohort garden sheds have proven their quality for over 30 years. Our hot-dipped galvanised, polyamide coated steel plate is supplied by the worldwide renowned Austrian Voestalpine steel mills. Premium car manufacturers, such as Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Audi, have all placed their trust in the high quality of "Voestalpine steel" for years. It is therefore with good reason and a clear conscience that we can offer our customers a 20-year guarantee against corrosion. Some components are made out of aluminium, which means a considerable reduction in weight and adds to the durability of our products.
In accordance with the building requirements, the assembly of a garden shed on a roof terrace is legal.
IMPORTANT: Make sure, that your garden shed is fixed storm-proof (fixing material is already included in the delivery). No liability can be assumed for damages caused by insufficient fixed Biohort-products.
Biohort-products are not designed for keeping animals.

The following are excluded from the guarantee: damages incurred in transit (haulage company is liabe), damages incurred due to faulty or inadequate foundations, due to corrosive materials in the surroundings or the storage of such materials within our sheds and indirect or secondary damage.
For wear and tear, moving parts, changes in colour, plastic- and rubber parts the statutory period of guarantee applies. Here you can find our terms of guarantee. We will gladly send the details to you on request.
As a rule, no! In most countries the local building regulations permit-you to freely position sheds on your own ground. In some cases an application can be submitted afterwards to the local authorities. In many places, one is even allowed to place the shed directly along the boundary. In the assembly instructions for our sheds a "planning application" for such purposes is included. You can also download the application form directly from our website.
Our tip: check with your local authorities or government before erecting the shed. Furthermore, we advise you to inform and come to an agreement with your neighbours.
Biohort products are only available in the colours specified. Custom colours are not available.
Biohort products are constructed from high quality steel plate and aluminium and are therefore 100% recyclable
We will try to ensure that CasaNova is delivered within 4 weeks from receipt of order.
However, due to seasonal shortages, the delivery time may increase. Nonetheless, throughout the year we can guarantee a delivery time of within 6 weeks.
For direct delivery ("free kerbside") it is essential that you provide us with your telephone number where you are can be reached during the day. The shipping company will contact you to agree upon the time of delivery.
To protect the Annexe from damage during transportation, it is packaged in especially secure boxes.
The delivery is always made up of 1 vertical box (for doors and panels) and 2 horizontal boxes (uncoated and coated profiles). Additionally, the wood panels for the roof are supplied on a single non-returnable pallet.
If an optional overhead sectional garage door is ordered, this will also be delivered on an additional pallet.
All accessories ordered (e.g. floor frame, floor panels, windows, BikeMax, etc.) will not increase the number of pallets. These will be packed in the boxes and only increase the weight of that particular transport unit.
You can choose in which direction (to the right or left) and the position of the doors in any CasaNova.
A door will always replace an entire side wall panel of the Annexe. Both the standard and the additional doors can be installed in all 4 sides.
A double door can be installed in any of the 4 sides (except size 3x2).
However please note, for static reasons you must make sure that additional parts are required for mounting the 4, 5 and 6 m sides (short and long roof uprights, solid cross bar, extra screws and angles, ...) and are subject to a surcharge.
The easiest way to test the possible positions of the doors can be found under www.biohort.com/konfigurator.
Yes! In Austria, Germany and Luxembourg, we deliver to the dealer or directly to the customer's address.
In France, Netherlands, Belgium and Spain we deliver to dealers store. The dealer then assumes responsibility fo the transport to the customer's address.
Prerequisite is that the delivery address is located on the mainland and the road is accessible for a 38t truck.
"Delivery Free of Charge" is the initial transport from our factory to the delivery address specified (mainland only), curbside, under the condition that the road is passable for a 38t truck.
When ordering from a market arrange a delivery week. Approx. 2-3 days before the actual delivery, the shipping company will contact you and the exact delivery date will be announced.
Make sure when ordering that you specify a phone number where you can be reached during the day.
Depending on the size of the goods ordered, please keep sufficient space free for the delivery.
Varies depending on shed size:
Fine gravel should be laid out around the green area anyway. This will allow you to raise the landscape towards the center of the roof.
This all depends upon the following factors:
A) Skills of the 'assemblers'
B) Weather conditions (do not attempt assembly in strong winds!)
C) Space available for assembly
D) The accessories which were ordered
E) Chosen foundation option
Thanks to information provided by customers, it is possible for us to offer these guidelines
At least 2 people are required to assemble the CasaNova!
Electrical installations (such as lighting, power supply, etc.) are generally permitted. Please note that any such electrical installation should only be carried out by a qualified electrician. Please ensure you make the necessary planning arrangements for an appropriate power-supply during the creation of the foundations.
The local building regulations vary considerably from region to region. Often these may vary according to the planned building area. Please inform yourself by contacting the local authorities, and ask if a building permit is required before buying the Annexe.
A building plan with detailed dimensions and static calculations based on EU valid EN-norms of the CasaNova is available from us. You can also download the static calculations directly from our homepage.
A plan of the standard building (with door) can be found in the assembly instructions. If necessary, a detailed plan can be requested directly from us. This will be custom-made for you (depending on the size, arrangement of doors / windows, etc.).
The roof of the CasaNova is designed to withstand a max. snow load of 215 kg/m². This is the equivalent of about 1.5 m wet snow. Do not forget to include the weight of a possible green roof!
Roof avalanches from neighbouring buildings can cause damage to the roof.
The all-round acrylic glass fanlight has sliding elements on the sidewalls of the shed and these can be opened for ventilation.
PLEASE NOTE: if the double glazing option is fitted the sliding function of the side windows is no longer available.
The folding table is hooked into 2 shelf rails. These in turn are attached to the lateral roof uprights.
The distance between two roof uprights is 100 cm. The distance from one corner post to a roof upright is however only 93 cm.
Since in shed size 3x2/4x2 only 2 corner posts and 1 roof support rail are installed on each side, the folding table can unfortunately not be fitted here.
Please note that by all other shed sizes it is not possible to mount the folding table in the corner!
Due to the length of the rails required by the electric drive assembly, it is only possible to fit it from size 3x4 onwards.
The BikeMax is mounted on the top and bottom profiles (between horizontal braces).
By the numbers indicated above, a space of 1 m between each bike is available. Theoretically, more than 1 BikeMax can be mountedbetween 2 uprights since the BikeMax is height adjustable by up to 11-positions.
The door opening angle of the double doors is 120° as standard. Due to the three-hole-position of the gas assisted spring damper, the angle is adjustable up to max. 135°.

The roof construction of CasaNova consists of 22 mm thick 3-ply wood panelling and a covering layer of UV-resistant and root proof 1,52 mm thick EPDM-rubber sheeting: this reliably seals the roof from the elements.
Both the plywood and EPDM rubber sheeting are included in the CasaNova delivery. Thanks to this stable construction CasaNova can withstand a snowload of approx. 215 kg/m² (minus weight of additional roof loads). This is the equivalent to the weight of 1,5 m wet fresh snow.
From the EPDM rubber sheeting onwards, the customer can complete the roof structure as desired. As a matter of principle the roof construction should not be higher than 6 cm, otherwise it will jut out over the roof frame.
Distance from EPDM foil to top edge of the clamping profile:
(note: the back side of the outbuilding is the side where usually the two drains are)
In this variant, the EPDM-rubber sheeting is weighed down with either washed round gravel (stone size 16/32), flagstones or similar slabs. To protect the EPDM-sheeting a fleece or mat should always be laid out first.
Additional roof insulation can be added by the customer in the form of XPS-hard foam panels.
These are simply laid on top of the UV resistant EPDM sheeting and then weighted down.
To weigh down the panels the customer can lay a mesh, spread gravel or place flagstones on top. If gravel is used, the XPS-hard foam panels should first be covered with a fleece as shown in the illustration.
With 3 cm of insulation a U-value of approximately 0.8 W / (m² K) can be achieved.
Since the EPDM-rubber sheeting is root-proof, the customer can plant roof vegetation if desired.

Due to the size of the CasaNova, make enquiries as to whether planning permission is required before you decide to purchase.
In some countries or districts the local building regulations may require you to make a formal application for building permission.
Returns and claims for refunds due to failure to obtain building permission will not be accepted by Biohort.
Thanks to its stable construction the CasaNova will withstand a snow load of ca. 215 kg/m² (minus additional roof loads).
This is the equivalent of approx. 1,5 m wet new snow.
The permissible wind load is equivalent to max. 1,60 kN/m². This corresponds to a wind-exposed location at an altitude of 3,000 m above sea level.
