Abstract: High-rise buildings renovation generally demands to replace existing false floor with new incombustible, strong and as thin as possible tiles. Gypsum based products are widely used for this application; however their weight and thickness are major disadvantages. UHPFRC raised floor tiles (CIMBURO) have been developed by Bonna Sabla to offer improved thickness (14,5 mm), significant lightening (13 kg instead of 25 kg - making them safely handle-able) and incombustibility (M0 degree). UHPFRC grey premix, was tested with different dosage of metallic fibers to provide the performance required by NF EN 12825. Cost-effectiveness of the solution was achieved among others with the implementation of a fully automatic line of production integrated with adapted UHFRPC facilities. 5 000 m² of 600x600x14,5 mm UHPFRC raised floor tiles have successfully contributed to the renovation in 2016 of the “Tour Hachette” in Paris (IGAPE, Roland Castro architect) newly-named “Tour Greenelle”.
