If you love the practical uses of a moderately-sized, apex roof timber shed but want a garden building that will stand the test of time without warping, rotting, or needing regularly repainting, you may prefer the robustness of a metal shed. This 8 x 8 Biohort Europa 4 is an excellent example of the inherent strength of a shed that uses a steel construction, and comes with plenty of handy features to make storing items all that bit easier.

This shed comes pre-finished in one of four colours that can be picked when ordering; each offers a unique look for your garden setting. The polyamide finish is highly resistant to water damage, requires no maintenance, and will keep its colour for many years to come. Paired with galvanised steel, this creates a shed that is durable enough to receive a 20-year anti-corrosion guarantee from the manufacturer Biohort.


A range of features come together in making the Biohort Europa a high-performing garden building that competes with the best on the market. With excellent attention to detail when it comes to construction and user features, the Europa delivers on both fronts.
An example of this are the various storage solutions, a series of parts that integrate within the shed's interior to help users to make the most of their storage area. Two shelves are each capable of holding 15kg, and are ideal for items you would like to give further protection from the elements by keeping off the ground. Four tool hangers are easy to install by clicking into place on the wall of your choosing, and are suitable for spades, rakes, garden hoses, and more. These can be placed wherever you like. Neatly fitted into the inside of a door is an organiser system with six hooks to suspend smaller tools and items. What is especially great about this design is that additional parts can be added as accessories to increase your capacity for storing items in a logical manner. Breaking up your storage space makes storing and finding key items far easier, so you won't need to waste time digging around for that fugitive garden fork or invisible flower pot.

Opening and closing your Biohort Europa is a satisfying experience thanks to features like the gas-assisted spring dampers used in each door, which allow them to move in a smooth and effortless way. An external hook for each door also allows users to keep these doors wide open when using the shed without the fear of a light breeze slamming them closed. Finally, when users are ready to leave their shed, a twist knob handle featuring a sturdy locking system means it is possible to secure the shed against intruders. A spare key is also included for safe-keeping in case you misplace your other key.

But it is almost certainly the excellent construction features that make this metal shed so appealing to customers, and this is no surprise; the metal panels used throughout the shed are a steel plate that has been hot-dipped in zinc to give it excellent anti-corrosion properties. Following this, the galvanised steel is coated with polyamide enamel to give it further durability and the attractive colour that makes the Europa stand out from the crowd. This refusal to compromise when it comes to construction materials is why this shed is able to withstand aggressive storms (wind force 12 on the Beaufort scale) and heavy snow loads of up to 150kg per square metre. At elbec, we are confident that your Biohort Europa will stand strong for many years, and this is backed up by the manufacturer's own 20-year limited guarantee that covers manufacturing faults and even corrosion.


Supporting the many possible uses of the Biohort Europa are a wide range of accessories that broaden the scope of this metal shed further still. If you would like to store bicycles in a streamlined manner that is easy to access, the 'Bikemax' bicycle holder for the Europa garden shed is an excellent way to attach bikes to the walls of your shed. On the other hand, the addition of a folding table can be a smart way to provide a larger surface for placing items than the shelves, and has a maximum load-bearing capacity of 30kg. If you are concerned with the negative impact of damp from the ground, a floor panel can also be added to your Europa, used in conjunction with the floor frame to create a grippy aluminium surface with 'chequer plate' panels.

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 purchasing Extra Support Rails to ensure you have the capacity and flexibility for placing your accessories. Explore these accessories and more to find the set-up for the garden building that suits your specific needs, all available for order from elbec with your core shed.

Additional Information

This garden shed will be delivered flat-packed and in parts, ready to be assembled at home. An easy-to-follow illustrated instruction manual is provided by the manufacturer to help you put your Biohort Europa together. We recommend that you enlist the help of a friend or family member so that you can have an extra pair of helping hands. It is reasonable to expect the shed to take one or two days to complete, depending on your prior experience with similar DIY projects.

The excellent coated steel parts used in the Biohort Europa give this shed the strength needed to stand the test of time, regardless of weather or threat of corrosion. This gives Biohort the confidence to offer a 20-year limited guarantee on the Europa, whose cover includes damage by rust and corrosion. Protection for this lengthy time period is difficult to find among garden buildings, and hugely appreciated. Be sure to read the details of this guarantee to make certain you know the details and can use the guarantee as required.
