Those frustrated by the warping, splitting, or rotting that is an inevitable feature of untreated timber will enjoy the ease of owning a metal shed that requires no maintenance. The 6 x 8 Biohort AvantGarde A2 Garden Shed is a relatively compact garden building that is perfect for storing all kinds of items outdoors, from gardening equipment to motorcycles. Like every model in its range, the AvantGarde A2 is packed with a range of features that make it a joy to use in daily life, as we have done our best to outline below.

Choose from a contemporary Quartz Grey or impactful Dark Grey shade for the exterior. The polyamide coating that produces its colour is highly durable so that the strong impression will remain in coming.

The A2 is the second smallest model available, but elbec offers an additional seven sizes all the way up to the 2.60m x 3.80m A8. There are also further options for a double door or additional side door.


The inclusion of many useful features help set the 6 x 8 Biohort AvantGarde A2 Garden Shed apart from its competition. An excellent system for organising the shed is created by several parts that each integrate into the main body of the shed. This consists of two shelves on support rails (each capable of holding 15kg), two tool holders that fit onto the door, and four tool hangers that can hold larger tools like spades or rakes. These are easy to screw or click into place upon completing your AvantGarde, and make it easier to store items in a logical and tidy manner.

When opening the single door, a gas-assisted spring damper make entering the shed a smooth and effortless experience. The 3-way aluminium lock and key featured with the stainless steel door handle make securing the shed straightforward, and a spare key is included. The pent roof comes with built-in guttering that is easy to connect to a hose in case you would like to create a sustainable irrigation system with a water butt.

The build quality of the Biohort AvantGarde stands out from the crowd, due to the inherently stronger materials and manufacturing techniques it uses compared to many sheds on the market. This superior strength is enabled by the use of the steel plate featuring throughout the AvantGarde, which is dipped in molten zinc in a process of galvanisation, before the application of a polyamide coating. Polyamide helps further protect the shed from corrosion, and gives the AvantGarde its consistent and metallic finish. The impressive strength of galvanised steel plate is why the AvantGarde can stand up to the wind speeds of extreme storms (wind force 12 on the Beaufort scale) and take the weight of heavy snow loads.

Treating steel this way - with galvanising and polyamide coating - makes it extremely resistant to corrosion; unlike many wooden sheds, the walls and roof of your AvantGarde will never rot, warp, split, catch fire, or need repeated painting with preservatives. Coated steel plate remains colourful for many years and can be cleaned with high-pressure cleaners.


To support the many uses the Biohort AvantGarde lends itself to well, a wide range of accessories are offered that broaden the shed's functions. Many customers are enthusiastic about the 'BIKEMAX' Bicycle Holder, which allows you to save space when storing a bike by attaching it in a vertical position. Meanwhile, keen gardeners find that an extra Shelf Set orsome Tool Hangers are a great way to open up possibilities when it comes to storing items like spades or compost bags. If you want to further increase the available light inside yourAvantGarde or use the shed at dimmer times of the day, an LED Lighting unit brings clarity to the inside of your shed; it even features a motion sensor for a seamless transition to a brightly lit interior, if desired. Explore the full range of accessories prior to ordering your Biohort AvantGarde garden shed to make sure you don't miss out the ideal setup for your needs.

Additional Information

The extremely durable nature of the hot-dipped galvanised steel used by Biohort means that they have the confidence in their products to offer a 20-year guarantee against corrosion. This reassurance is almost unmatched across the garden building market, and speaks to the longevity of Biohort's products.

Your Biohort AvantGarde will be delivered in a disassembled state, ready for assembly at home. We recommend putting your garden shed together with the help of a friend. Take your time in following the illustrated instruction manual to make certain your AvantGarde will live up to its full potential and provide weather-proof storage for many years to come.
