French term or phrase: Frein à double joue
Hi there - can anyone tell me if a 'Frein à double joue' is the same thing as a 'frein à double disque' i.e. a double-disc brake? I can't find that first phrase anywhere. They are fitted to gantry cranes, if that helps!

Thx

English translation:Double-jaw brake
Explanation:
I think this has to do with "frein à machoires" which is translated into english as jaw-brake. A literal translation back in to french gives "frein à joue".
