The Afnor (French Association for Standardization) has launched a platform to allow those who manufacture fabric masks against the coronavirus to meet and interact virtually with those who are looking for them. "We already have hundreds of registrants," said Thursday April 9 on Franceinfo Olivier Peyrat, director general of Afnor. Their tutorial, which she offers to make masks, has been downloaded "300,000 times" since the end of March.

"We can speak of great success, congratulates Olivier Peyrat. To do this, we were inspired by best practices, we were inspired by tutorials on the Internet and with 150 experts we sought to do better".

franceinfo: What is found on this document?

Olivier Peyrat: We are on logics of free downloadable files with patterns, recommendations on the subjects which want to be as accessible as possible. There are recommendations on things to avoid, like sewing in the middle [of the mask]. It's not good. There are lots of tutorials with seams in the middle, but our specifications do not. There are also maintenance recommendations because it must be maintained. It should be washed at 60 °, cotton setting.

What fabric can we use?

There must be a filtration criterion and a breathability criterion. If it is too filtering you may not be able to breathe. If it is very breathable it may be less effective for filtration.

There are recommendations so that people can do things from everyday materials.

We are currently testing to have configurations, sandwiches, which allow you to have results with everyday materials.

How does your platform work?

We provide specifications and after each appropriates it according to his skills and talents. We have identified a very strong solidarity demand with people on one side, these are in particular craftsmen, retirees, who want to help locally and we have applicants like traders, delivery men, garbage collectors. So we diverted from its initial use the Afnor pro contact platform to put it at the service of this surge of solidarity. masques-barrieres.afnor.org was launched yesterday and we already have hundreds of subscribers.

© LP / Thomas Poupeau Aulnay-sous-Bois, Thursday 7 May. Cynthia Pastor, deaf, fears that wearing a mask will make communication between the hard of hearing and the hearing impossible during deconfinement. How can I reconnect with others when we cannot understand what they are saying? At the edge of deconfinement, this is the agonizing equation that arises for 300,000 deaf and hard of hearing people in the country - figure estimated by the National Federation of the Deaf of France (FNSF).
