Proven and tested for decades now and still very popular! More than 120,000 examples of our garden shed "Europa" have been sold and the proud owners use it with pleasure. The reasons are clear: its highly stable and functional design combined with durable materials ensure low maintenance. An extensive selection of standard equipment plus a range of well-conceived accessories designed to fulfill customers wishes help to create order and make working in the garden a pleasure.
Standard interior colour: grey-white
Note: the product colours shown on our website may differ from the real product colours! Find out more details under the header Quality/Colours.
(In cm. Exterior dimensions incl. roof overhang)
Door opening: 135 x 170 cm (W x H)
Thanks to the low depth, model sizes 2A and 4A are particularly suitable for attachment to a house or garage wall.
Two extra mounting brackets are included in the delivery for installing the shed directly onto the wall.
From the shed sizes 2A to 7 the double door can be also installed off-centre. For shed sizes 4, 5, 6 and 7 doors can also be installed in the side wall.
For Garden Sheds of width 244 cm & 316 cm respectively, connecting modules are available which allow two sheds to be joined in length to form one large shed.
In this photo two garden sheds size 7 have been connected - the newly created shed has a length of six meters. In this way the garden shed "Europa" can be converted to make the ideal garage for a large number of bicycles, your lawn tractor, car trailer and a much, much more! A garden shed which has been converted normally has one double wing door.
This can be increased by adding an extra double door or an extra wide door (see photo on the right).
The floor panels (see accessories) can be used in the connected sheds without any additional sill or threshold. Depending on the shed size, the floor will consist of a specific number of panels, these can be laid out end-to-end (joined by flat connecting rails). In this way, the entire floor of the metal shed can be traversed without obstacle and there are no hazardous obstructions which could trip you up.
Due to constructional reasons the gable at the connecting point of both sheds must be retained.
Please note that the clearance height at this point is only 171 cm!
The joint in the side walls of the two sheds is covered by a galvanized rail. This is ‘invisible’ when seen from outside - the side wall looks as if it were constructed from one continuous surface.
consists of 2 shelves (depth: 24.5 cm, width 72 cm) and 2 support rails.
Additional shelf-sets (with 24.5 cm or 43.5 cm depth and 72 cm width) and support rails are available as accessories.
Additional tool hangers are available as accessories.

The ground screw foundation is a complete solution consisting of earth screws, a special frame and aluminum panels. The optional aluminum floor frame is no longer needed here and could not be mounted in addition. Also the optional aluminum floor panels are already replaced by the aluminum planks.
For the ground screw foundation, a natural ground is necessary. It is also important that the soil is free of large stones, pipes and rough root system. It is advisable to carry out test drilling beforehand (for example with an iron bar of at least 60 cm length).
The aluminium floor boards of the ground screw foundation can be loaded with up to 200 kg/m².
Laying a vapor barrier (= a waterproof plastic foil with a min. thickness of 150µ) is highly recommended since this protects from rising soil moisture. It is curtial tha tht efoil is not larger than the floor space of your garden shed. Further information about the foundation options can be found in our foundation tips.
If you have not yet considered the vapor barrier in the foundation, you can use the aluminum floor frame to retrofit it inside the shed: Spread out the vapor barrier and pull it slightly up the sides of the aluminum floor frame. Then lay, on the entire surface, the XPS rigid foam panels and finally the aluminum floor panels (or any other floor). Finally, cut the overhanging foil flush with the top edge of the aluminum floor frame.
For the fixation of the side roof supports only a concrete or point foundation or a ground screw is recommended. The additionally required earth screws (depending on model and house size 2 or 3 pieces) can be ordered as accessories.
A foundation has to be established for the sheds, the Equipment Locker and for the MiniGarage. Please note our foundation tips.
The WoodStock, StoreMax, HighBoard and Cornerboard require a horizontal and firm surface. These products have to be attached to this surface using the screws and dowels supplied.
The storage boxes (FreizeitBox and LoungeBox) also have to be placed on a horizontal and solid surface. An attachment to the ground is not provided.
The Raised Vegetable Bed, Belvedere and the MonAmi composter can be placed on all horizontal surfaces.
1. The easiest assembly option is, to assemble the shed resp. the equipment locker with the aluminium floor frame (without special foundation) and to fix them to the ground with the ground anchors that are included in the delivery. The aluminium floor frame can be combined with the optionally available aluminium floor plates (please put a 2-3 cm thick XPS hard foam plate between the chippings and floor plate) or with concrete plates inside the shed.
2. A proper and cost efficient solution are paving slabs (min. 50x50x5 cm) which are laid in a bed of chippings. You can find such paving slabs with different surfaces and colours in any DIY store. Even if you lay the paving slabs even and if you densify the chippings bed, we recommend using the aluminium floor frame.
3. Another option, to install a shed in a storm-proof way on a very bumpy and soft ground is a point foundation together with the aluminium floor frame. The foundation points shall be established at at least 4 corners with a side length of min. 30x30 cm. The excavated soil for the point foundation has to be adequately deep (frost-proof). The shed is fixed 2 times each with the aluminium floor frame and the accompanying fixation material to the foundation points.
4. A reinforced concrete foundation is a qualitative high-value foundation. Please make sure that no water can get into the shed from beneath the floor profiles. The offset foundation plate with the circumferential step of 2x7 cm is the ideal solution.
5. The gound screw founcation is a high-quality and precisely fitting foundation solution which is also suitable for slight slopes. This foundation option can be installed relatively easily and the foundation frame is fixed to the gruond via ground screws. An aluminium frame as well as aluminium floor plates are comprised in the deivery scope.
Please also note our foundation tips.
The surface for Biohort products has to be absolutely even, there must not be any slope. There are several options to establish a proper foundation. Our advice for chosing the right foundation can be found here. The fastening material (screws and plugs resp. ground anchors for the aluminium floor frame) is included in the scope of delivery. Please note, that we cannot be held liable for damages due to insufficiently fixed Biohort products.
Depending on the foundation option that has been chosen, the aluminium floor frame can be recommended or required. Exceptions are the ground screw foundation and the concrete foundation with the step - here you do not need the aluminium floor frame. Further information about this topic can be found in our foundation tips.
Specific sockets and wrenches are included. The following additional tools and aids are required or may be helpful:
This depends on a few factors:
From many years of experience, however, we can provide the following timeframes:
Garden Shed Europa:
|3 to 6 hours (depending on size)|
Garden Shed HighLine / Panorama / AvantGarde
|4 to 6 hours (depending on size)|
|Equipment Locker:||2 to 3 hours|
|MiniGarage:||2 to 3 hours|
|HighBoard:||1 to 2 hours|
|LoungeBox:||1 to 2 hours|
|LeisureTime Box / PAKET-BOX:||0,5 to 2 hours|
|0,5 to 1,5 hours|
|Raised vegetable bed / Planting bed Belvedere||10 minutes|
|Composter MonAmi||30 minutes|
|Ground screw foudnation:||2-5 hourse (depeding on size)|
At least 2 people are required for assembly of Biohort products.
Please check the delivered goods for completeness (size, color, number) and any damage.
Make sure that there is enough space (at least 1 m all around) and helpers for the assembly. It is advisable to read through the assembly manual beforehand.
Biohort has certified assembly partners who are self-employed. Here you will find the installation partner responsible for your area. You can contact him directly or order (for Germany and Austria) the assembly in our online shop. The installation conditions for assemblies booked in our online shop can be found here.
A basic requirement for a successful installation is a level, horizontal surface.When assembling, you need at least one meter space around.Please open the boxes according to the sign.To avoid scratches, please use suitable padding for the individual parts. Wear gloves during assembly - parts may be sharp-edged!
Sealing compounds are available from various manufacturers, but it is important that they are suitable for outdoor use and that they do not tarnish the metal parts (free of acid).
Depending on the surface, the sealant can be used for foundation sealing. Please pay attention to our foundation tips.
The sealant serves to seal the bearing surface of the floor profile(or floor frame) and foundation, so that no rainwater can penetrate into the shed.You can find further information in our foundation tips.
Biohort products are Faraday cages and therefore no lightning protection is necessary. The Faraday cage (also known as Faraday cage) is an all-round enclosure made of an electrical conductor (eg. wire mesh or sheet metal) that acts as an electrical shield. In external static or quasistatic electric fields, the inner region remains field-free due to the induction.
The roof of the sheds is designed for a max. snow load of 150 kg/m² (CasaNova 215 kg/m²). However, roof avalanches can lead to damage to the roof.
The tool sheds must be securely anchored with the supplied fastening material (dowel or ground anchor) against storm damage! No liability can be accepted for damages caused by insufficiently attached Biohort products.
The Biohort storage space solutions are all lockable and thus insurance-technically a "lockable container". Security against burglary is highest at the Panorma, HighLine, AvantGarde and the CasaNova outbuildings.
What is a burglary?
A burglary is called when a theft is accompanied by a burglary. That is, if the offender gains access to an insured space by insisting on the use of force, with tools, with illegally-made keys, or with keys that he has previously obtained from another insured room by burglary or robbery to steal. A burglary is also present when the offender gets into an insured space by overcoming aggravating obstacles or through non-entry openings or creeps in. And finally, the intrusion and stealing of objects into locked containers is considered burglary.
Biohort products require little care due to the high quality material and the careful processing. It is sufficient if the lock and the hinges are oiled annually and the sliding guides of the StoreMax are regularly cleaned or treated with silicone spray. In case of contamination due to weather and environmental influences, you only need water for cleaning and the Biohort CleanLine universal cleaner.
You can even use a high-pressure cleaner for cleaning (distance between the lance and the paint min. 10 cm, do not use a steam cleaner, maximum pressure approx. 80 bar). For the preservation of the paint surface we recommend the Biohort CleanLine preservation, which protects the paint surface best from weather and environmental influences.
Important: Salt water and / or sand containing ambient air, aggressive and abrasive cleaning agents, road salt, fertilizers and other chemical substances (never store products openly) can attack the paint and zinc surface and lead to rust damage. Warranty claims can no longer be asserted in such cases.
No, the side canopy always has to be attached to a shed. It is not possible to use it free-standing.
For the shed extionsions of the Europa range, no ground screw foundation is offered.
Basically, in the winter months, it can be assumed that the internal temperature of the product will match that of the outside temperature, as there is no insulation.
In case of prolonged sunshine Biohort products can heat up, this is similar to cars. To regulate the temperature, regular airing is recommended.
In the case of cold and heat, no noise develops in Biohort products, since the steel sheet has a very low coefficient of material expansion (much less than with aluminum, plastic, concrete, ...).
Only products with a door handle set (HighLine / AvantGarde / Panorama) can be connected to a house locking system or replaced with a new cylinder. The cylinder for the mortise lock has a length of 54 mm and a central pitch (27 mm each).
You can install an insect screen on your own. It should be noted that any adhesive that may be used shouc be removeable without residue and the material shall not be attacked.
The tool holders bear a load capacity of max. 10 kg.
The shelves can bear a load of max. 15 kg and the shelf support rails of 100 kg stood.
All accessories, which are assembled in the insdie of the shed or box can be easily assembled in retrospect.
Biohort products are subject to the standard DIN 4102 and are classified in the building material class A1 as products without combustible components.
Biohort products can be evenly loaded with up to max. 150 kg/m² . Please do not make any punctual loads.
Exception: The Raised Vegetable Bed cold frame can withstand up to 25 kg per extension panel.

Biohort uses only the best material for all its products. Biohort products are made of high-quality, hot-dip galvanized and polyamide enamelled steel from Austria and Germany. Premium car manufacturers such as Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Audi have been relying for years on the high quality of these well-known steel producers. In good conscience, we therefore grant a 20-year warranty against corrosion. Individual components are made of aluminum.
All Biohort-products are water-proof. All our products are intended to be ventilated passively.
During assembly, please make sure that a vapor barrier is installed against rising soil moisture (see foundation design). In case of high humidity and large temperature fluctuations, condensation on the inside of the roof may occur during the night. This is of physical nature, but can be minimised or prevented by attaching Styrodur boards / XPS rigid foam boards (thickness: 2 cm for Europa and AvantGarde, 3 cm for HighLine and Panorama). These panels are available in all DIY markets. The sheds of the AvantGarde, Panorama and HighLine range are prepared accordingly for insulation on the inside of the roof. For the Europa range, we are happy to offer mounting material. Please contact us in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
To minimise noise, you can insulate our sheds on the inside of the roof. The sheds of the AvantGarde, Panorama and HighLine range are prepared accordingly. For the Europa range, we are happy to offer mounting material. Please contact us in writing to email@example.com.
As long as you are in compliance with all your local building regulations, there is no problem in using a Biohort product on your roof terrace.
IMPORTANT: please make sure you fixate our product on your terrace in a storm proof way (fixing material is included in scope of delivery). No responsibility will be accepted for any damages resulting from insufficiently fixated Biohort products.
Our sheds and eqipment lockers are intended for free placement (fixed to the ground). We can, however, offer you fixing parts for our equipment locker and equipment shed Europa to attach them to a house (these parts are included in the scope of delivery for Europa size 2A and 4A). Even in case of attachment to a house wall we still recommend fixating the house/locker to the ground.
Please keep in mind that no responsibility will be accepted for any damages resulting from insufficiently fixated Biohort products.
Biohort-products are not designed for keeping animals.
Biohort products are conceived as storage solutions, and insulating panels can be installed on the inside of the roof of the sheds as standard. The AvantGarde, Panorama and HighLine range are already prepared for roof insulation!
For sheds of the Europa range, roof insulation can be offered. Please contact us in written form via firstname.lastname@example.org.
The height of the threshold is usually about 30 mm. When using an optional aluminum floor frame (cross section: 40 x 40 mm), the height of the threshold is approx. 70 mm.
Shed Europa: up to 180 ° (depending on door position and optional downpipe)
Sheds AvantGarde, HighLine, Panorama: 90 ° or 115 °
Due to the design, the roof overhang in the sheds can not be changed.
To be able to adjust the doors correctly, a 100% horizontal foundation is a central requirement. Furthermore, the shed must be aligned at right angles and the side walls horizontally (diagonals measured in the house!).
Raise / lower door: The hinges on the door frame are bolted to holes with little clearance. This makes it possible to move the hinges either up / down and adjust. For this purpose, the retaining screws of the hinges must be loosened again and the hinge parts are moved accordingly. This allows the door leaf to be adjusted.
Move door left / right: To do this, loosen the screw connections on the front (floor and head profile), adjust the doors correctly (to the left or right) and tighten the screw connections again. The door gap should be about 4-6 mm wide.
The optional aluminum floor frame can also be retrofitted with a little extra work.
An optional additional door can be retrofitted. Please note, however, the resulting overhead. Therefore, plan in advance the number of house entrances or the desired door installation situations.
For the Europa shed, the EquipmentLocker and WoodStock (twist grip cylinder lock), the stop can be freely selected during assembly. For the AvantGarde, Panorama and HighLine (stainless steel door handle) sheds, a left-hand stop on the standard door is available on request and at an additional cost.
The Biohort colors do not correspond to any RAL number, but some are similar to RAL numbers: we recommend that you look at the original color samples at our dealers. On request, you can also request color samples from Biohort.
This colour is not similar to any RAL colour.

The bicycle holder bikeMax can be installed in the Biohort sheds / EquipmentLockers (plug-in system). Thanks to the V-shaped groove in the mounting profile, bicycles with narrow tires as well as mountain bikes can be safely stored. The bike is hung on the front rim. The center of gravity is so far away from the suspension point that the bike centers on its own and does not tilt to the side. The lateral distance of the bicycle holder to the wall should be between 30 and 40 cm (depends on the width of the bicycle handlebar). If several bicycle holders are mounted side by side, a distance of about 55 to 60 cm is appropriate. Of course, another distance can be chosen. If you hang the bikes differently, the distance between the bike holders can be reduced to 30 to 40 cm, thus saving space. To do this, mount the hanger alternately on the upper and lower group of holes of the guide rail.
The specified mounting dimensions are standard values. The local conditions and the bicycle sizes are to be considered during assembly. If the distance between the bike holders is chosen too small, the hanging up or down is not as comfortable as with a larger selected distance.
Please note that if the optional threshold access ramp is retrofitted, the door sill already installed must be removed again. The installation of a threshold access ramp is only possible with double doors and when using the aluminum floor frame. Load capacity max. 200 kg; Length 135 cm. The installation instructions for the threshold access ramp can be found here.
The optional aluminum floor frame (= 40 x 40 mm aluminum forming tube) is an ideal accessory regardless of the chosen foundation variant. For a gravel bed, for paving slabs for point or strip foundations, the floor frame is required. For a smooth, even concrete foundation (without gradation), the floor frame isnot required but recommended, as this facilitates the sealing or the application of the sealing joint.
EXCEPTIONS: In conjunction with the ground screw foundation and the concrete foundation with lateral gradation (stepped border or water barrier), the aluminum floor frame can not be used! Further information can be found under the foundation tips.
The optional aluminum floor plate (= 2 mm checker plate) can only be used in conjunction with the optional aluminum floor frame. Please note that the aluminum floor plate must be fully lined with a 2-3 cm thick XPS rigid foam board. The foam board is not included in the delivery, but available in any well assorted DIY store.
Rainwater down pipes are offered according to the selected product. For the AvantGarde and HighLine shed, max. 1 downpipe set (= 2 individual downpipes) are attached. At the Europa and Panorama shed the water drainage could be made on all four corners (in this case 2 rainfall pipe sets would be possible for the Europa and Panorama shed).
For the side canopies (available for Europa and HighLine), a separate downpipe (= a single downpipe) is included in delivery scope of the side canopy - this results in a total of 3 downpipes for the house, including the side roof.
Optional rainwater downpipes are made of galvanized sheet steel in the appropriate house color. The diameter of the individual downpipes is 40 mm in cross section. The pipes are designed to fit into a 50 mm drain pipe (polo pipe or PVC pipe).
20 year warranty against rusting of sheet metal parts and for defective or unusable parts. Excluded from the warranty are, for example, transport damages (the freight forwarder is liable for this), damage due to foundation errors and / or aggressive environmental substances, and indirect or consequential damage. For wear, moving parts, color changes, plastic and rubber parts, the statutory warranty period applies. Here you will find our detailed warranty conditions.
Please contact your competent authority regarding permits. You will find an approval plan in the assembly instructions for your garden shed. Of course you can also download our standard approval plan from our homepage.
In principle, an additional standard door can be installed in sheds HighLine, AvantGarde and Panorama. Placement of the door, however, depends on the size of the shed.
An extra-wide door can only be ordered for equipment shed Europa (except sizes 1 and 2). The extra-wide double door (171x171 cm) can be ordered in addition to or instead of our standard double door (135x171 cm). This extra-wide door can only be installed off-centre.
In principle, an additional double door can be installed in all our sheds: AvantGarde (starting from size L), HighLine (starting from size H1), Panorama (starting from size P1) and Europa (starting from size 3). Placement of the door, however, depends on the size of the shed. In this case, optional additional packages have to be ordered.
The various installing options for doors are dependent on shed model, shed size and which kind of door you order (standard/double/extra-wide door). Please do contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for all related questions.
Custom-made products in terms of width, depth and height of the sheds as well as any other products are not possible due to serial production.
Sheds of the Europa range with widths of 244 cm resp. 316 cm can be joined in a row to form a large shed using a connection module (always only sheds of the same widths). The gables of the two houses are supported and connected at the junction with profiles, the passage height is then 170 cm (like door height). A shed extension has a double-wing door as standard, but you can also extend it with an additional double door or an extra-wide door.
If you want a shed extension, please be sure to mention this when placing the order!
A window unit can be installed into an Europa shed after it has been assembled. This window unit corresponds to the size of a side wall. Please keep in mind the additional assembly time needed.
A side roof can be added to garden shed HighLine (starting from size H2) as well as Europa (except sizes 1 and 2A). It can also be added after the house has already been assembled.
The side roof can only be added on the walls carrying the downpipes. Side roofs can be installed on either side or both sides. A downpipe for the side roof is included.
Electrical devices (lights, power lines) can generally be installed in all garden sheds. Please keep in mind that these systems must only be installed by an authorised professional. We recommend you already plan for a power line when constructing the foundation for your shed or locker. If you did not plan for a power line when building the foundation, you can also add it afterwards. In this case the cable can be layed through the front corner coating into the garden shed (Panorama, AvantGarde, HighLine).
In order to make installation of switches, power outlets etc. easier, we offer an electrical mounting panel as an optional accessory for our garden sheds and equipment locker.
Due to the maximum permissible roof load and the necessary roof drainage, which is not guaranteed in case of green roofs, Biohort recommends no green roofs. The outbuilding CasaNova is an exception - a green roof is possible. Further information can be found here.
The equipment locker (starting from size 150) as well as garden shed Europa are available solely with double doors.
We do not offer custom made sizes because of series production.
Yes, floor panels can be installed after your Biohort-product has been assembled. In this case, adding the aluminium floor frame is absolutely necessary! We recommend supporting the floor panels with 2-3 cm thick XPS-rigid-foam panels.
Biohort products are constructed from high quality steel plate and aluminium and are therefore 99% recyclable.
You can order replacement keys for our stainless steel handle with cylinder lock (equipment shed Panorama, HighLine, AvantGarde from model 2016) from a locksmith. In order to get a replacement key you have to bring an original key with you - please keep one of the three keys which come with your equipment shed in a safe place!
In case there is no original key available, the cylinder has to be drilled open. In case of the twist grip cylinder lock and twist knob cylinder lock (equipment shed Europa, Equipment Locker, MiniGarage, WoodStock, StoreMax, HighBoard, CornerBoard, LoungeBox, LeisureTime Box,) replacement keys can be ordered from Carney in Germany. They need to know your lock number (engraved on the lock).
