In this article, we are dealing with β-numeration, which is a generalization of numeration in a non-integer base. We consider the class of simple Parry numbers such that dβ(1) = 0.k1d-1 kd with d ∈ ℕ, d ≥ 2 and k1 ≥ kd ≥ 1. We prove that these elements define Rauzy fractals that are stable under a central symmetry. We use this result to compute, for several cases of cubic Pisot units, the maximal length among the lengths of the finite β-fractional parts of sums of two β-integers, denoted by L_⊕. In particular, we prove that L_⊕ = 5 in the Tribonacci case.
