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.
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.
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, ...).
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.

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.
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.

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.
Biohort products are constructed from high quality steel plate and aluminium and are therefore 99% recyclable.
The diameter of the milling groove is 68 mm.
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 outbuilding CasaNova from transport damages, it is packed in very stable crates. Every delivery consists of one standing crate (for doors and panels) and 2 lying crates (blank and coated profiles). Additionally, the wooden plates for the roof are delivered on a disposable pallet. If you optionally order a sectional overhead garage door, this will be also delivered on an additional pallet. Any accessories (e.g. floor frame, floor panel, window, BikeMax etc.) do not increase the number of pallets. They are included in the other crates and only increase the weight of the respective transport unit.
Additionally, one can choose a side for the door stop (right or left) as well as the position of the doors in the CasaNova. A door always replaces a full side wall panel of the outbuilding, both the standard door as well as the additional door can be fitted on any of the four sides of the CasaNova. Further, also a double door can be fitted on any of the four sides (except for sizes 3x2 and 4x2). Please note here, that due to static reasons, special parts are required for assembly of the 4, 5 and 6m side and thus a small surcharge applies. Our configurator offers an easy way to test the realisable positions of the doors.
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 CasaNova roof is prepared to bear a max. snow load of 215 kg/m². This correspons to approx. 1,5m of fresh, wet snow. Please also take in consideration the weight of any green roof or additional roof loading.
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 hung into 2 support rails, which in turn are attahed to the laterally extending roof stayers. The distance between 2 roof stayers is 100 cm. The distance from one corner stayer to a roof stayer is however only 93cm. Since in size 3x2/ 4x2 only 2 corner stayers and one roof stayer are fixed per side, one can unfortunately not install the folding table. Please note that also for all other sizes, the installation of the folding talbe in a corner is not possible!
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 delivery to the customer is then completed by the dealer because a forklift or crane is required for unloading the large and heavy packages.
Delivery time: approx. 4-6 weeks
For Austria, Germany, Luxembourg, France, Netherlands and Belgium, a direct delivery free of charge to the end-customer (free kerbside) is possible!

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.
