Exactly this is the scenario the "layout" switch (available for pages after
activating secondary options) has been made for.

Default values are Normal, Layout1, Layout2, Layout3.
You can add more if you need and you can change the labels as well:

Page TSconfig:

  pages.layout {
    addItems {
      4 = Another Layout
      5 = One more
    altLabels {
      1 = No Left Menu

In your TS Setup you can then use conditions:

#this is your menu setup
temp.myMenu = COA
temp.myMenu {

[globalVar = TSFE:page|layout = 1]
    #this kills the menu setup
    temp.myMenu >

#this adds the appropriate menu version
page.10 < temp.myMenu
