Graphical Construction Glossary >> stairs. >> Stair Handrail Extensions
The stairs in public and semi-public places are in many jurisdictions required to use these safety terminals
The sloping sections follows the rules for the handrail height and then at the level section they get their height from the landing/balustrade heights.
Where the handrail extension would protrude into normal traffic not using the stair, then they are terminated at the corner as in the photo above. In the top photo on this page they do protrude to the normal footpath edge.
