finish: tumbled, tumbled finish
Explanation:
However, this seems to apply more to stones, etc. than to ladders. I don't see how you can tumble a ladder.

Then again, who knows? Here are some references with aluminum, so probably this works:

Explanation:
or anything better you can come up with: a revolving implement is used in smoothing out and eliminating protrusions (rebabas) from a metal surface, as part of the finishing process. Hope it helps- the text in the reference, from an Argentinian labor-union agreement gives this explanation, pretty plausible.
