Zing Communications has doubled the number of product categories on its SearchSpec online lighting product database with the addition of three groups. Recessed/direct/indirect, task lighting, and multispot listings will join categories for track lighting, linear suspended indirect, and cove lighting on the site.

Design professionals visiting the site can choose a product category and further narrow their search by designating criteria like light source, voltage, and finish. The database will generate a catalog of products that meet the user’s specifications and offer contact information for the corresponding manufacturers.

The site has plans to add categories for downlights, wall sconces, and industrial bells, among others, in time for Lightfair 2003 in May.
