Cleaning Products for Rolling Stock, Stations and Depots


Chela manufactures specialist cleaning and maintenance detergents for the UK rail transport industry.

The company's products enhance the presentation of client's equipment across rolling stock, depot and station environments.

Chela's solutions help train operating companies (TOCs) to enhance a passenger's travel experience.

Iron stain and dust removal from train exteriors

Chela's products can be used to clean train exteriors that have been ingrained with iron stains, tunnel and brake dust.

The company's dual-product approach focuses on creating an easy-clean environment by using a fast-acting, safe cleaner designed to remove iron stains and brake dust. Chela offers two key specialist products for cleaning train exteriors, namely FleetClean Plus and Chela Eurowash ISR.

FleetClean Plus is Chela's premium exterior trainwash detergent designed to leave a high-gloss protective finish on all exterior areas, reducing the build-up of iron stains and general exterior soiling.

For all heavy exterior manual cleaning applications, many UK TOCs use Chela Eurowash ISR Range. Designed to safely remove carbon, as well as iron, brake and tunnel dust, it is an industry-leading product that consistently cleans train exteriors.

Both FleetClean Plus and Eurowash ISR Thick hold ESG Scientifics approval, and can be used together to enhance the presentation of train exteriors.

Cleaning products for train toilets

Chela provides two specialist toilet cleaning products that are proven to provide outstanding presentation and on-going odour control. The ESG Scientifics-approved BioChela Range is based on special bacteria that eliminates the root causes of odours.

BioChela Fresh is designed to be used on all train toilet surfaces, including floors, sink, panels, glass and the toilet bowl itself. It contains class 1 bacillus bacteria, high-performance odour locks and specifically chosen detergents, which enhance cleanliness and presentation.

The product can also be used to clean controlled-emission toilet (CET) systems, which are sometimes forgotten as they are not visible. Keeping the CET contents fluid and minimising bacteria levels is vital to ensure that bad odours do not find its way back into the toilet cubicle.

Chela's BioGel 250 is a daily-dose treatment designed to be applied into the toilet bowl and flushed directly into the CET. BioGel 250 also contains odour locks, perfume and class 1 bacillus bacteria, which is designed to physically digest and consume harmful bacteria.

The use of BioChela Fresh multi-surface toilet cleaner and BioGel 250 (CET treatment) provides the highest possible levels of presentation and enhances passengers' travel experience.

Innovative cleaning products for the railway industry

Chela adopts a partnership approach with its clients to fully understand their requirements and objectives.

Whilst many of our competitors adopt a rigid approach to new product design and innovation, Chela prides itself on delivering new presentation concepts as the UK Rail landscape changes and evolves with the introduction of new rolling stock.
