            If you want to store many items with minimal hassle, this 8 x 12 Biohort AvantGarde A8 is a fine choice due to its large footprint and steel construction. With a stunning three-panel window neatly tucked beneath the overhang of the sloped pent roof, the AvantGarde looks the part in any contemporary home and is an exciting alternative to a classic timber shed. And within the crisp, vertical lines of steel walls is the strength needed to withstand extreme storms for many decades to come. It is no surprise that Biohort therefore offers an incredible 20-year guarantee against corrosion.

            This garden shed is available in several metallic shades, each of which brings something unique to your garden: Silver, Quartz Grey, and Dark Grey. Every AvantGarde will come with a grey-white interior that maximises the illumination offered by the three-panel window. The finish is a polyamide coating that requires no maintenance, is easily wiped down, and can even be pressure-washed without losing its colour. A 8 x 12 footprint is perfect for storing many items and larger equipment including lawn mowers, bicycles, or barbeques. However, those wanting a more compact option than the A8 can explore seven more size options in the range.


            The many features included inthe AvantGarde A8's design make it a pleasure to use in daily life. For example, a variety of ways to organise items within the shed are included and integrate well into the overall structure. Two shelves mounted on support rails can each hold up to 15 kg of items. Two tool holders fit inside the door and four tool hangers are perfect for suspending longer tools like spades or hoses from the wall. These are all easy to install upon assembling your AvantGarde and make the shed immediately usable in ridding your garden of clutter.

            In contrast to the weaker materials used in most garden sheds on the market, the benefits of a storage building with a galvanised steel construction will continue to be felt for many years. Unlike timber sheds, the AvantGarde will never warp, rot, split, or be damaged in stormy weather. The steel plate used throughout the AvantGarde's roof and walls has been hot-dip galvanised in molten zinc before receiving a polyamide finish in your chosen metallic colour for the outside. The interior has a grey-white polyamide finish to provide the inside of your shed with a light and airy atmosphere, making the most of the sunlight from the high window. These processes make the steel used in the AvantGarde extremely robust and resistant to wear and corrosion.

            The polyamide finish of this shed is so resilient against wear that Biohort boldly offers a 20-year guarantee against damage from corrosion. With such care taken to create a strong starting point for the AvantGarde, it is no surprise that this shed can stand up to extreme wind speeds of up to 93mph and hold off at least 150kg of snowfall per square metre.

            If security of your stored items is any concern, you will be pleased to know that the door of the AvantGarde A8 is lockable by key. The 3-way locking system is extremely robust and backs up the strong steel construction of the door and surrounding panels. A spare key is also included. In the double door option, the additional left side door features a twist knob lock to ensure both doors stay closed when needed.

            Creating a sustainable irrigation system with the excess water that accumulates on the roof of the AvantGarde during rain showers is easy. This is thanks to the built-in gutter with two end connectors that fit 5/4 inch hoses or the optional rainwater downpipes.


            A wide range of accessories are on offer, each designed by Biohort to be used with the AvantGarde and offering a new use to the garden shed. Many enjoy the space-saving potential of the BikeMax Bicycle Hanger, which lets you store bikes in a vertical position on a wall of your shed. Just as popular are accessories that allow you to increase storage space, such as an additional Shelf Set, Tool Hangers, or a Folding Table.

            If you would to add extra storage solutions that are mounted on support rails (such as shelves or suspension baskets) to a different part of your shed than the included shelves, we recommend adding the Extra Support Rails to your order, ensuring you have the capacity and flexibility for placing your accessories.

            Additional Details
