Sign Language

I recently led a Better Business Writing class for a well-respected company in one of its large training rooms. The room had two doors, one at either end. Each door had a sign next to it. I believe the signs were saying the same thing, but I am not certain.

The first sign was printed in short lines as follows:

OCCUPANT LOAD
PARTITION OPEN
CONCENTRATED USE – 126
       LESS
CONCENTRATED
       USE – 63

The second sign said:

MAXIMUM OCCUPANCY
        126

Which one do you prefer?
