Searching for Products

This article will help you understand how to search for products on SpecifiedBy.

First, you need to have an idea of what you would like to search for.

Within this example, we will be searching for ‘thermal insulation’. To do this, we click on ‘product categories’ and then select ‘insulation’ as shown below.

As you will see from the video above, there are over 450 insulation products on the database. Therefore, you may need to be more specific with your search. Within this example, we are specifically looking for ‘thermal insulation boards’.

To do this, we click on the specific category of insulation we are searching for within the ‘subcategories’ section on the left-hand side of the website. Within this example, we selected the ‘thermal insulation boards, slabs & batts’ subcategory –  as shown below.

Although we have now made our search more specific to our needs. We have still not narrowed the search down to only ‘thermal insulation boards’ as our requirements. Thus, we need to select the ‘type’ within the ‘thermal insulation boards, slabs & batts’ subcategory.

To do this, we select the specific ‘type’ of ‘thermal insulation boards, slabs & batts’ we are searching for from the ‘type’ section on the left-hand side of the website. Therefore, within this example, we selected the ‘insulation boards’ type –  as shown below.

Thus from over 450 general insulation products we have now narrowed our search to under 170 specific thermal board products, as per our requirements.

However, it should be noted that it is possible to get even more specific with your searches on SpecifiedBy. Please see the advanced search guide to find out more.

If you would like to gather further information on a specific product, simply click its image. This will re-direct you to the products page including the manufacturers information, product description, specifications and downloadable content e.g. BIM files.

Furthermore, you can compare up to a maximum of three products using the comparison tool. A guide to using the comparison tool can be found here.
