Yes, I take the one tread depth extension of handrails (2015 IBC 1014.6) as a minimum.

I may be wrong but would think the graspable rail could go all the way to the floor if one so desired to do this.

I understand that, at the bottom of a stair, a handrail must extend a distance equal to one tread depth. Is the handrail allowed to exceed one tread depth at bottom of stairs?
