arrangement of coals in living flame gas fires

I have recently acquired two living flame gas fIres but the coals were bundled into two plastic bags aNd there were no instructions on how to arrange them in the basket. The gas engineer is coming to connect the fires on Wednesday but says he needs to know how to arrange the coals appropriately otherwise the fires may not work properley. Any ideas?

What make is it - I think i've got instructions for a Royal Cozyfire here somewhere...
The manufacturer might also have the manual available online for you to download - and if not, google for the model name and "manual" anyway - there are websites that specialise in making the instruction books available.

I hope you know they are absolute crap at heating a room, virtually all of any heat they produce goes up the flue.

They are probably all different. There must be a rating plate on the appliance giving the name and address of the manufacturer - suggest you get in touch with them.

Not all of them, they come in 2 types one is intended mostly for decoration you see them in Hotel foyers etc, the other is more expensive, better made with more insulation and is less decorative but performs very efficiently.

Not necessarlly true - what you say is true for the so-called *decorative*-fuel-effect (DFE) fires however Inset Live Fuel Effect (ILFE) are far more efficient thanks usually to a (fuller) surround and heat exchanger.
