We constructed glass RPC modules for detecting KL and muon in BELLE experiment. The modules have been installed in the instrumented iron yoke outside of the solenoid coil and cover about 2000 m2 of detectors. We report the design and construction of the detectors, including the gas distribution and exhaust system, the HV system, the readout electronics and DAQ system. The performance with cosmic ray and the e+e- collision data are presented.
