I haven't come across this before. The house as a curved stairway with a hand rail in an open foyer. I did not feel too comfortable at all with the rail only 2'6" tall (I am 6'3"). There was one more small step at the top landing which left the railing at only 2'2" (only a couple inches above my knee). At 6'3" I felt if I lose my balance at all I would topple over. Is it an overreaction because of my height? Should require a fix for this potential "safety issue"?
