Spanish term or phrase: siamesas
In the specs of a fire truck, talking about hoses and connections:
"Todos los elementos, conectores de mangueras, boquillas, siamesas, adaptadores, etc. con rosca de 1.5" y 2.5" y deberán ser del tipo NYFT."
I suppose it is a double connection. Any suggestions as to the correct English term for siamesas?
