    Technically, to accomplish what you want to do, any "splitter" would have to be fused so that it didn't overload the supply plug. I'm not aware of any like that.

    The adapter you show is ok because it converts a 240/120V supply into 2 120V receptacles and there is no concern of overload of that supply plug.

    You could always build one fairly easily, but it will come with safety, insurance, and liability considerations.

    You won't find one commercially. If this is a permanent installation, I'd splurge the relatively small amount of $$$ to get an electrician to do a proper receptacle install.
