It has a minimum shelf-life of 5 years under normal warehousing conditions (in a dry, clean and ventilated warehouse – not in containers or tented warehouses – and stored on pallet racks or pallets elevated off the ground, not piled). The tent is vulnerable to rain and moisture when packed.

The tent design was developed to ensure a product fit for human use, ensuring the minimum required outdoor lifespan in all climates.
