The SmartBase/SmartBasePLUS foundation is a complete solution consisting of adjustable feet/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 SmartBasePLUS 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 SmartBase foundations 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.
The recommended foundation dimensions can be found in the technical data for the respective product. If you are rebuilding a concrete or ground foundation, please refer to our concrete foundation plans and point foundation plans.
A foundation has to be built for tool sheds, Equipment Locker and the MiniGarage. Please note our foundation tips.
For the products WoodStock, StoreMax, HighBoard, Patio Locker Romeo and the Cornerboard, a level and solid base must be available. These products must be fixed to this subgrade with the supplied screws and anchors.
The storage boxes (LeisureTime Box and LoungeBox) must also be placed on a leve and solid surface. It is not intended to be fixed to the ground.
The raised vegetable bed, the planter Belvedere and the MonAmi composter can be placed on all level 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 SmartBasePLUS foundation 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.
A floor frame is necessary in the following situations: Point foundation, insufficient* paving slabs or concrete foundation without step. The floor frame provides a continuous bearing surface for the floor profile (joints, coarse-grained substrate) and facilitates the application of the sealing joint.
* insufficient: minimally uneven, coarse subsoil.
Further foundation tips can be found here.
No special technical knowledge is required for the installation. The delivery of our products includes a detailed assembly manual. You can download the assembly manual on our homepage in advance.
Specific sockets and wrenches are included. The following additional tools and aids are required or may be helpful:

The detailed assembly manual of our products is included in the delivery scope. On our homepage you will also find these for download.
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 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.
The prerequisite for a successful assembly of our products is an absolutely horizontal foundation. With the Biohort SmartBasePLUS foundation, a slope of up to 10% can be compensated. Further information can be found in our foundation tip.
Keep all supplied small parts or packaging materials away from small children during assembly. Components have sharp edges or protrude, pay attention to them during assembly and during daily use.
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, Neo 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.
The hole diameter for cable entry is 22 mm.
Sheet metal screws with a diameter of 3.2 mm are required for fastening the surface-mounted sockets and surface-mounted light switches.
On all magnetic elements inside the house (e.g. on the roof beams).
The LED light is attached using a magnetic strip.
The screw size for this is slightly variable. The size of the self-tapping screws should be between 3.2 and 3.9 mm. The diameter of the cable bushing is 22 mm.
|tool sheds||max. 6 pieces|
|MiniGarage||max. 6 pieces|
|HighBoard 200||max. 4 pieces|
Yes the bicycle storage rails of the MiniGarage are suitable for both, normal bicycles and e-bikes.
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).
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 the folowing measurements:
Garden Shed Highline, Panorama, AvantGarde, Neo, Europa, Equipment Locker and MiniGarage: 150 kg/m²
CasaNova: 215 kg/m²
Storemax: 100 kg/m²
Highboard, Loungebox, LeisureTime Box, Romeo, Alex: 30 kg

The exterior, interior and foundation dimensions can be retrieved from the Biohort brochure (https://www.biohort.com/en/service/downloads?no_cache=1) on the last pages (technical details) or online. Click on the desired product on the Biohort website and then go to the technical details. You can also download the respective submission plan and foundation plan here.
ATTENTION: The external dimensions are always including roof overhang and the stated height is the highest point of the product.
No rainwater downpipe is not destined for resp. necessary for the EquipmentLocker/MiniGarage. The interior roof racks contain an upwardly curved styrofoam insert, so that the roof is slightly arched. Thus, the water runs off evenly on all sides.
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, make sure that a vapour barrier against rising ground moisture is installed (see foundation design). With high humidity and large temperature fluctuations, condensation can nevertheless occur on the inside of the roof during the night hours. This is due to physical reasons, but can be minimized or prevented by insulating the inner sides of the roof with Styrofoam boards/XPS rigid foam boards (Thickness: 2 cm for Europa and AvantGarde; 3 cm for HighLine, Panorama, Equipment Locker and MiniGarage). These panels are available in all building supplies stores. The shed series AvantGarde, Panorama and HighLine are appropriately prepared for insulation of the inside of the roof, as are the equipment cabinet and MiniGarage. For the model Europa we gladly offer mounting material. Please apply in writing to customer service.
In order to minimize noise, you can insulate our shed on the inside of the roof. The shed series AvantGarde, Panorama and HighLine are prepared accordingly, as are the Equipment Locker and MiniGarage. For the model Europa we gladly offer mounting material. Please contact us in writing customer service.
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.
Biohort-products are not designed for keeping animals.
Biohort products are designed as storage space solutions. If necessary, insulating plates can be attached to the inside of the roof of the tool sheds, Equipment Locker, and MiniGarage. The shed series AvantGarde, Panorama and HighLine are already prepared for roof insulation, as are the Equipment Locker and MiniGarage. Mounting material for roof insulation can be offered for the shed of the Europa series. Please contact customer service in writing in this regard.
The Patio Locker Romeo consists of a stiffened roof plate, which is mounted without a roof frame. Roof insulation is not possible here.
The optional aluminum floor frame can also be retrofitted with a little extra work.
With the Europa shed, the Equipment Locker and WoodStock, the stop can be freely selected during assembly. With the AvantGarde, Panorama and HighLine (stainless steel lever handle set), the standard door can be left-hinged when ordered on request and at extra cost.
With the MiniGarage and the Patio Locker Romeo, the door opening cannot be changed.
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.

Basically all Biohort products are delivered with different locks. Depending on the product group, the locks can be subsequently ordered in a single lock, provided that the lock design of the respective products are identical. Please contact our customer service (firstname.lastname@example.org).
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 SmartBase foundations 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.
20 years warranty against rusting of sheet metal parts and for defective or unusable parts. The following are excluded from the warranty Damage in transit (for which the carrier is liable), damage due to faulty foundations and/or aggressive environmental materials and indirect or consequential damage. Only the statutory warranty period of 24 months applies to wear and tear, moving parts, colour changes, electrical, plastic and rubber parts. Here you will find our detailed warranty terms.
Electrical installations (such as lighting, power supply lines etc.) are generally permissible. Please note that such systems may only be created by a licensed specialist. If necessary, plan an appropriate power supply line during the construction of the foundation. If this has not been done and a supply line is to be installed subsequently, the cable can be laid inside the house in the front semicircular corner panels (Panorma shed, AvantGarde and Highline).
With the MiniGarage, the power cable can be pulled in at one of the rear corner panels, as there is a small cut-out at each corner (bottom). The HighBoard 200 has perforations on the bottom and inside the rear wall which can be pressed in to allow cables to pass through. For the simple installation of switches, sockets and the likes of, we offer an electrical mounting panel for the tool sheds, Equipment Locker, MiniGarage and for the HighBoard 200 in the accessories range.
Biohort products are available in these colours. We do not offer special colours because of our series production.
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.
Replacement keys for the stainless steel lever handle set with standard cylinder lock (CasaNova, Neo, Panorama shed, HighLine, AvantGarde from model 2016) can be re-ordered from a locksmith after presenting an original key. Therefore keep one of the three supplied keys in a safe place! If a key is no longer available, the installation cylinder must be drilled out.
Keys for the t-handle cylinder lock or the turn nob cylinder lock (Garden Shed Europa, Equipment Locker, Patio Locker Romeo, MiniGarage, WoodStock, StoreMax, HighBoard, CornerBoard, LoungeBox, LeisureTime Box) can be re-ordered via the Carney company from Germany.
