One way is to just let the user filter the type, something like: _type:abc (or have your own filtering). Otherwise, that filtering is not really effective usability wise.

I have multiple types in my index and my plan was, for each type, to include some properties of the type and the type itself into the _all field, so from a single search field the user can search for the properties and the type too.
Let's say there's a bank called ABC. If I'm looking for a branch, I search for "abc branch", but if I'm only interested in ATMs, I search for "abc atm", and if any ATM will do, I search for "atm". Branch and ATM is a type, and ABC is the value of the name property of these types.
