The 5 x 3 (163cm x 78cm) Biohort StoreMax 160 is a practical storage solution for many items you would prefer to store outside of the home, with a design that is very unique among its competitors. With this storage unit, owners can create a striking visual impression in their garden without losing too much usable space. It makes storing all manner of items easy, with some of the most popular uses including lawn mowers, bicycles, gardening tools, sports or camping equipment, and tableware.

At the same time, the locking system included in the StoreMax and its strong metal construction means that this storage unit is well-protected from theft. If you are searching for a garden storage solution that has a remarkable build quality and truly unique approach, explore the many features of the StoreMax 160 outlined below.

Choose the right StoreMax for your garden setting by selecting one of three exterior colours available to order through elbec, from Silver, Quartz Grey, and Dark Grey metallic shades. All colour is applied prior to delivery using a polyamide coating that is consistent and durable. This colour is limited to the side walls and two bands across the front of the StoreMax; the aluminium shutters will always have a Silver Metallic finish. The interior of the StoreMax is grey-white.

The StoreMax 160 can fit two 240-litre bins if turned 90 degrees – the most common wheelie bin size supplied by councils across the UK. Alternatively, you can fit three of the more narrow 120-litre bins.


A disadvantage of traditional hinged doors is that they intrude into your garden space when open, meaning you need to be more conscious of where you place your storage unit. With the StoreMax, this is no longer the case. A roller shutter that is divided into two parts – the lid and front wall – can be easily pushed back to open up your storage space entirely. This shutter is spring assisted for effortless movement and has been coated with Silver Metallic polyamide enamel to protect it from the elements for many years to come. Splitting this shutter into two parts has the benefit of being able to independently open the lid if you only want to access the StoreMax from the top.

To make opening your shuttera smoother experience, it is constructed from lightweight aluminium. However, the side walls and floor of the StoreMax feature a tough galvanised steel plate that has been dipped in molten zinc to make it highly resistant to corrosion. This protection against the elements is only increased with the addition of a polyamide coating. It is therefore no surprise that Biohort offers a lengthy 20-year guarantee against corrosion. Due to the maintenance free design of the StoreMax, this is easy to keep valid throughout the years.

At the centre of these two shutters is the twist handle for opening your StoreMax, which features a cylinder lock that can be secured by key. Alongside its robust metal construction, this lock makes StoreMax extremely secure from theft. And in case you misplace your key, Biohort has thought to include a spare that can be left in a safe place within your home.

The StoreMax is an ideal size for storing garden furniture, wheelie bins, gardening tools, and much more – while retaining the shorter height than a garden shed so that it takes up a minimal amount of space in your garden. An included tool holder means that keeping your tools organised and within reach is possible.


The many accessories developed by Biohort for the StoreMax mean that you can create a storage unit that meets your specific needs for garden storage. This is one of the biggest benefits a premium garden building manufacturer has over many others on the market.

For the StoreMax 120 and 160, customers like to improve organisation of their storage with extra shelving in the form of the Corner Shelf Set. With the 160 and 190 sizes, an intermediate floor can greatly increase the storage capacity of your StoreMax by adding a new level for keeping items.Make sure to explore all the accessories available when ordering your StoreMax through elbec.

Additional Information

elbec is thrilled by the 20-year guarantee offered by Biohort, the Austrian manufacturer of this StoreMax garden storage unit. This protection against rust perforation is made possible through the unmatched longevity of the polyamide-coated metal used by Biohort in its products. The confidence that Biohort has in its product should give owners plenty of assurance that their StoreMax will stay standing for many, many years. Check the details of this guarantee on Biohort's website to make sure you fully understand the range of its coverage.

The product will be delivered to you in separate parts across several corrugated cardboard packages. Assembling the locker at home will be easier if you have some experience with similar DIY projects already, but the manufacturer provides an illustrated instruction manual that is easy to follow. The smaller size of the StoreMax over other garden buildings means that it could take as little as an hour or two to put together.
