Emg 81 kh hammett set in my strat is noisy?

Ok I bought a kh preloaded pickguard with two emg 81s in it and installed it in my strat,, sounds good but its noisy. The pickguard dosent have any shielding foil on it, and the way its set up the battery is right under the tone and volume knobs. So my question is if i buy some sheilding foil and install it will that reduce my noise issue or will it not matter since their active pickups???

I should also mention that its only noisy through my dirty channel, and im running it through a 5150 with a boss noise suppressor. but its more noisy than my other guitars, which one has a set of duncan blackouts.
