PRODUCT OVERVIEW Continuum solutions are the result of research into maximum efficiency in absorption functions. This new product design incorporates the physical mechanisms necessary to provide very high efficiency in performance through the optimization of : • Viscous dissipation • Strain energy conversion • Displacement energy conversion The Integration of all these mechanisms into an industrial production process gave birth to an efficient material composition incorporating corrective broadband sound atmosphere technology which is self adaptive at low frequencies. Particular focus was given to making the footprint of the continuum solution as small and autonomous as possible thus making installation as quick as possible. Each installation can have a unique design thanks to various colours, patterns and embossing possibilities available. 2
AREAS OF USE Continuum solutions can be applied in any enclosed space where improvements to the acoustics are necessary, not only to the sound levels, but also the spectral balance and sound perception. It is clear that the acoustic requirements of a meeting room will differ significantly to those of a workshop, telephone call centre, or even the requirements of a room designed and dedicated to listening to music. Architects, designers and acousticians must consider the variety of different noise sources acting within any environment and the customers requirement in order to design the finished solution. Continuum solutions effectively meet these requirements and satisfy design recommendations. 3

HOW CONTINUUM PANELS WORK 6 Continuum Solutions have a very low resonant frequency and almost always exceed this, but their strong depreciation properties provide a wide enough bandwidth to self-adapt to the initial natural frequencies of most rooms. For higher frequencies, those just a fraction of the size of a solution, optimization of strain energy conversion is obtained, since bending vibration is potentially active. For medium and high frequencies the solution behaves like a layer of porous material allowing small scale viscous dissipation to act according to currently well known laws. It should be noted that air stiffness trapped in the back has been incorporated into design modelling in order to enhance the performance of absorption at medium frequencies. When a sound wave hits a Continuum solution panel, it will behave differently depending on its frequency. Continuum panels are designed to be particularly effective in the lower frequency range where traditional panels struggle, in addition to the mid and high frequency ranges. The panel vibrates as a structure in response to the low frequency soundwaves it is exposed to. The sound absorption mechanism depends on wavelength of the lower frequency sound nature and the size of the panel. At low frequencies where the wavelength is of similar size or greater than the solution in place, the pressure exerted on the solution surface will be almost in phase and will trigger optimization properties thus leading to displacement energy conversion.
HOW CONTINUUM PANELS WORK 7 In general, a good sound balance depends on a harmonious distribution of the spectral response of the room. This will be achieved with equalizers that can affect the entire spectral range. Continuum solutions, with their wide bandwidth makes it easier to achieve such an objective. We present here an example of a room treated with Continuum solutions where reverb time was reduced and relatively constant over a wide band.
BENEFITS 8 Some of the many benefits of using Continuum: • Ability to absorb 63Hz to 10,000Hz with a thickness of just 45mm • Balances the acoustic environment of living spaces • Reduces tedious acoustic broadband noise including low frequencies • Improves the intelligibility of speech • Reduces standing wave phenomena in confined spaces by improving the spatial uniformity of the sound • Corrects reverberation time over small surfaces • Ensures continuity of sound quality to your ears in open plan areas • Increased soundproofing In addition to these qualities, Continuum solutions are very easy to install and take minutes to set up. Continuum incorporates a broadband acoustical signal correction device which adapts to low frequencies.
OUR PATTERNS 9 The secret to Continuum solution’s specific aesthetics lies in its manufacturing process. A unique collection of delicate subtle patterns have been designed by the Paradigm Design Agency.
OUR PATTERNS 10 Sound particles are their main theme. A graphical representation of sound rhythm and contemporary interpretation of frequency.
OUR RANGE 11 Thanks to their convenient format, Continuum wall solutions allow for great freedom in arrangement. Patterns have been developed so that they can be positioned in any way you please.
