No. A fire resistance rating is determined by the amount of time a partition will prevent the spread of fire, so a one-hour door (and its wall and supports) would have to hold back a typical fire growing for at least one hour. For example, a 20-minute fire rating requires a fire door to withstand an intense fire on one side, rising to over 1,400 degrees F during twenty minutes, and then being hit by a pressurized fire stream, without causing any openings.
