Hi, guys, could you, please, give me a hand with one phrase...
There are two thermostats...
*one of which is a control-type one and the other one is the safety one.
*one of which is of a control type and the other one is safety.

Which ending is better? Yeah, I do understand, that may be there are way too many "ones" in the first (one??, or not required, btw:)), but can we really use the ajective "safety" before the full stop without any word like "one" here? Please, could you explain this to me.

I would say "one of which is a control type, and the other which is a safety one"
