Unlike traditional casement windows, stormproof casement windows feature outward opening sashes, which stand proud of the frame and are draught stripped to provide robust protection against the elements. In most cases the edge of the window is wider than the opening so when it is closed, it forms a protective lip over the frame for a better protection against extreme weather conditions.
